Having an "ACE" of a time at ACE Comic Con....see what I did there?

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided with passes to attend ACE Comic-Con. All thoughts, opinions, and tired feet are our own. 



I've been going to comic-cons in Chicago since the Chicago Comic-Con days at the Ramada Inn near O'Hare and I have seen a lot of cool things. I remember seeing most of the Image team unite for the first time. That was like seeing your favorite rock stars all in one room. I remember watching as the Chicago Comic-Con became Wizard World and going to the first C2E2 and just seeing the Chicago comic conventions get bigger and bigger.

Monster Jam® Triple Threat Returns to Rosemont



Too big to contain to once a year, Monster Jam® Triple Threat will make its second annual appearance at Rosemont’s Allstate Arena, Nov. 2-4, marking the first time the wildly popular Monster Jam tour will make a Chicagoland pit-stop in November. Playing to sold-out crowds here each February/March, this new season of Monster Jam Triple Threat promises to bring motorsport fans to the edge of their seats with adrenaline-charged, high-flying, four-wheel excitement that is fun for the entire family.

Featuring the eight most intense athletes of Monster Jam, Chicago-area fans will witness a fierce battle for the championship with each competitor using customized high-powered vehicles: Monster Jam Speedsters, Monster Jam ATVs and the famous Monster Jam trucks. Vying to be the Chicago-area champion will be:

Grave Digger® – Brandon Vinson
Max D® – Jared Eichelberger
El Toro Loco® – Armando Castro
ZombieSM – Ami Houde
Pirate’s Curse – Camden Murphy
Wonder Woman – Collete Davis
Megalodon – driver-athlete to be announced
Monster Mutt® Rottweiler – Jack Brown

Unexpected, unscripted and unforgettable, Monster Jam takes center stage in the world’s most iconic venues, sporting meticulously manicured dirt tracks created with the sole purpose of pushing these perfectly engineered, larger-than-life trucks to the limit.

Monster Jam is one of the only sports where male and female world-class drivers, some generational rivals, are equals competing for the same championship on the same track. Following racing, new this season across all Monster Jam events, fans in every city will have the chance to vote for the truck winner in the donut, wheelie and freestyle competitions by real-time, in-arena fan voting on their smartphones.

Are you ready for the Worlds 2018 Championship?




I remember when I was younger playing against my family and friends Madden Football on the Sega Genesis and playing for hours. Some of the games would always come down to the final possession and those few seconds were always intense. Nowadays, gaming has come a long way from playing next to your opponent to playing against someone in another state or even country. With the arrival of online gaming, you could be playing against someone down the block or in another part of the world.

Relive the Adventure at Home with Solo: A Star Wars Story

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided with a review copy of Solo: A Star Wars Story in exchange for a review. All thoughts, words, and credits lost on Sabacc are our own.




When it was announced that Disney was going to release a Star Wars movie every year, the ideas of movies that would come out felt endless. As fans of the Star Wars movies, we all have ideas of what movies we would like to see or what characters we want explored on the big screen, but with the vast amounts of characters it will be hard to please all of the fans wanting to see their idea of Star Wars on the big screen.

The Gifted Season 1 Home Release

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided an advance copy of The Gifted to promote the home release. All thought, opinions and mutant powers are our own. 

With the few shows on television that continue the story of mutants or Inhumans, The Gifted is a little ahead of the pack by combining some great actions sequences while telling a powerful tale of family. Where Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Legion fall short, The Gifted shows a strong promise to be one of the must-watch shows of the expanded Marvel Universe.
