(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

It’s time for our final conversation from Nowhere California’s adventures at the 2017 Long Beach Comic Expo and this final conversation will help you explore your untapped powers, but not in the self-help/Tony Robbins way and more in the way of MARVEL/DC. In this installment, the guys from Nowhere talk with Kyle Marlett.

Kyle is the creative mind behind the website MutantPowers.net, this is a site that will help the most normal comic book fan unlock some truly unique gifts and these “gifts” come in the form of specially created magic tricks/special effect.

Kyle’s life and love for nerd culture has been an interesting journey, so you know that this was a conversation that needed to take place and it was a pleasure of the Nowhere California team to talk with this creative mind. If you want to see what Kyle might have in store for you, go to MUTANTPOWERS.NET and find out.

Tripping On Eden In Long Beach..

 Flashbacks can have their ups and downs. The memories of a lost and drunken weekend in Las Vegas can bring on a negative aftermath, but a flashback from a past convention has a better chance of a more positive outcome and will be less dangerous.

 At the 2017 Long Beach Comic Expo, the Nowhere California team crossed paths with a flashback from conventions past and talked with Jason Beckwith. Jason is the creative mind behind multiple independent comic books, such as “Taking Eden” and “The Tool”. Also, Jason is a fixture in the convention circuit and can be usually found in “Artist’s Alley” portion of the convention floor, this is where the guys from Nowhere first crossed paths with Jason at the 2016 Long Beach Comic Expo.

 One year later, we had the pleasure to talk with Jason about the current state of his comics and the world of the convention floor..

Inside The Artist’s Mind..

 In the past our convention coverage, our focus would stay on the art of the comic book pages and the creative minds that put pen to page. In this installment of our adventures at the 2017 Long Beach Comic Expo, we are leaving the pages and moving to the wall, so we can talk with artist Michael Matsumoto.

 Michael is an illustrator and a conceptual artist that delves deep into pop culture for inspiration. During his continuing elevation in the art world, Michael has developed a following and has picked up freelance work in the form of commissioned pieces. Also, during this time, he has found a place in the convention circuit and this is where we crossed paths.

NowhereCalifornia.com Reaches Its First Year..

It started one year ago today, this site was launched and took the concept of Nowhere California to a whole new level.

Nowhere California started in 2011 and it was just another conversation between two friends, but these conversation started taking place in front of a microphone and unleashed on the internet. It was as simple as that, but as Nowhere California evolved, the team grew and new accomplishments were reach.

The episodes started to grow and the team ventured out of the Nowhere city limits, as they dove into the world of conventions and conducting interviews. It was with each accomplishment, the Nowhere California family stuck to their ideals of what they wanted to produce and not to become just another podcast.

It was that mindset that grew into this website and, as we mark our first year on the net, we want to simply say THANK YOU.

Thank you for following the journey of Nowhere California.

Thank you for listening to the original podcast and all of the other podcast that have sprung from this little idea.

Thank you for checking out this site

And thank you for continuing this adventure with us.

The hangover from the Long Beach Comic Expo is starting to fade, but it’s time for our coverage to get into high gear.

In our first installment of our coverage, we had the pleasure of talking to Tony Todd. This man has been connected to some of the modern classics of horror and independent film. Also, Todd has made an impact on the small screen and can be seen of CW’s FLASH as Zoom.

It was an honor to have a conversation with this man and we would like to thank Tony for taking the time to talk with some guys from Nowhere.

During our conversation, Tony mentioned his current work in the movie “Frankenstein” and you can watch the trailer below. It looks to be a modern take on a horror classic and, from the looks of the trailer, this version will honor the legacy of the original.
