Comic Con Experience Announced For December 2014 In Sao Paulo, Brazil

Comic Con Experience - São Paulo Brazil

Comic Con Experience is the first show in Brazil covering all the main areas of pop culture: comics, TV, movies, games, cosplay, fantasy and sci-fi literature, collectibles, etc. The show is scheduled for December 4-7, 2014 in São Paulo, one of the biggest cities in the world and the economic capital of Brazil.

Set in a 20,000 square-meter pavilion, the show is expected to gather around 80,000 attendees over 4 days to celebrate pop culture.

As comic cons started as events organized by comic book fans, the Comic Con Experience announced his comic guests first, including: Scott Snyder, Ivan Reis, Sean Gordon Murphy, Rafael Grampá, Rafael Albuquerque, Olivier Coipel, Klaus Janson, Greg Tocchini, Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá. Several others are yet to be announced, including TV and movie talents.

Comic Con Experience is organized by Omelete the biggest pop culture and entertainment website in Brazil, and by Chiaroscuro Studios, a talent agency representing several top talents in the comics industry.

Brazilian fans and exhibitors couldn’t be more excited about the show. Due to the high demand, the organization has increased 33% percent of the area (from the initial 15,000 square-meter area) to meet the demand from both fans and exhibitors. Since the Comic Con Experience was announcement in an article published in the country’s main weekly magazine in January 25st, the show’s fanpage on Facebook has gathered over 50,000 fans and the organization has been approached by major entertainment companies from different countries targeting the Brazilian audience: Brazil is the fourth biggest market for games with 35 million gamers and among the top 5 markets for American movies.

Best & Worst Moms Ever

Some of them smothered their children with love. Others just smothered them. In honor of Mother’s Day Time.com presents a highly unscientific study of the ten best and worst mothers from the worlds of pop culture.

Check out the list HERE.

Marge-simpson1

Marge Simpson

There are a lot of reasons to love Marge. Her heart is as big as her hair. She’s sweet, simple, unflappable, and like Edith Bunker before her, she uses her goodness as a shield from the crudeness of her husband and the never-ending needs of her kids. Sure, she’s subsumed all of her larger dreams — of becoming an artist, an actress, a professional bowler or anything else for that matter — to tend to home and hearth, but that’s why we have dream sequences.
