Pretty Good Week...

It's been a pretty quiet week for me, but I started the weekend off checking out the Peanuts movie! I grew up reading the comic strips and the holiday specials were yearly traditions.
This movie kept that spirit alive with this film. I won't divulge too much plot since the film just hit theatres, but I will highly recommend you check it out of possible.

I got the next two days off, but will be staying busy setting up interviews for the site, including the Greg Bear Q&A I mentioned earlier this week. Greg Bear is a renowned author of many award winning Sci-Fi novels. We also have some stuff lined up with more great comic creators, as well as our friend, and popular cosplayer, Ireland Reid. That one is gonna be lots of fun. She's funny, charming, and ridiculously talented at her craft.

Hopefully I get caught up on some of these television shows too. I'm a couple weeks behind on everything, including Grimm, Arrow and Gotham. What shows are you currently following on television nowadays? Who's gonna watch Jessica Jones on Netflix? I'm excited for it after how well they did Daredevil. Come tell us what your watching at the Facebook Comic Book Swap Meet group (I'll start a thread).

We're also looking to post more at the site, so if anyone wants to contribute, get in touch. I'd like to get more media reviews (comics, books, film, tv), commentary and more. Do you have an idea that might be fun? Let's hear it. Are you a cosplayer that would like the extra promotion and would like to do a column at the site? Talk to me.

As always, we wan't to thank everyone for the support. Keep on sharing, reading, and following. We have some big conventions coming up, and are close to some milestones for followers and readers, including Twitter. Once he hit 1000 followers, we're gonna do a giveaway (or two), so make sure you're following and sharing @thestevestrout ...I'd your feeling really ambitious, use the hash tag #ComicBookSwapMeet when sharing!
