Diva Visited GnB Comic's Spanking New Place for Halloween Comics Fest!

Yesterday (29 October 2016), Red Dot Diva visited GnB Comic's spankin' brand new shop at Kitchener Complex for Halloween Comics Fest!

Halloween Comics Fest is an annual worldwide event when free horror comic books are given out to fans of all ages at participating stores. This was also Red Dot Diva's first time attending the celebration.

One of the few comics bookstores existing in Red Dot Island, GnB Comics has been operating at Rochor Centre for several years. Unfortunately, the blocks of old but colourful apartments and shops were marked for demolition, and as that time drew nearer, fans and members of GnB were getting twitchy wondering if the shop will carry on at another site or close its shutters for good.

Then, in late September, a surprise announcement was made on GnB Comics' mobile app. The comic book store has found a new home at Kitchener Complex, which is just a hop and a skip away from Lavender MRT Station! Woohoo!

Heroes Reborn!! NBC Revives Show With Mini-Series To Air in 2015!

By all accounts, it was going to be a lazy Sunday with Red Dot Diva expecting to be peacefully Home Alone, enjoying her braincells turning into mush before another hectic work week begins.

But it was not meant to be.

Around noon Red Dot Island time, her Twitter feed exploded with news of "Heroes Reborn". NBC has decided to use the Winter Olympics coverage to air a special teaser. The network was going to reboot the popular TV series "Heroes" with a 13-episode mini-series 2015 produced by creator Tim Kring, complete with a new set of characters and very possibly, some of the fan faves from the original series.

An Island Find: A Teacher's Bound Volume of Vintage "Classics Illustrated"

Earlier this month, Red Dot Diva received a surprise message from a blogger pal Vernon, about something that his cousin had found while going through his uncle's belongings. (His beloved uncle Mr Wee, a school teacher till his retirement, had passed away not long ago.)

The unexpected family find was a bound volume of vintage comics from the "Classics Illustrated" series. His cousin Janice thought that her dad's lovingly kept comics looked old and unusual, but wanted to sell it off to a collector. However, she did not know how much it was worth. 

Not a hardcore comic collector herself, Red Dot Diva was not able to provide her with any information. But the vintage comics got her curious, and she dug around to find out more about "Classics Illustrated".
