(Celebrity guest) @Tree City Comic Con

 —  —

Expo Idaho, 5610 North Glenwood Street, Boise, Idaho 83714

 

Samantha will be a celebrity guest at Tree City Comic con this year! About the con: A new convention planned for October 17 and18 could bring thousands of comic book, anime, and video game enthusiasts to Expo Idaho. Organizers say Tree City Comic Con will feature vendors, celebrities, costumes, and more. Comic Cons are very popular in other cities, with some large conventions drawing hundreds of thousands of people. Salt Lake City’s Comic Con, for example, drew around 100,000 last year. Tree City Comic Con hopes to draw as many as 10,000 in its first year. “I’ve been wanting one for years. There have been many other local cons, but they’re more generally specialized to a certain genre of geekdom, if you will. But comic con is going to centralize everything so that everyone can feel a part of it and be excited for going,” Tree City Comic Con spokeswoman Kristal Larsen said. As the countdown to the October comic con continues, organizers are looking for sponsors and volunteers, and hope people are planning their costumes. “Batman, Robin, Trekkies, you’ve got Star Wars fanatics. You can be pretty much anything here and be accepted,” Larsen said. While a lot of planning is still going on, and the comic con has faced some skepticism, Tree City Comic Con has a number of things being finalized, including some of the celebrities. “We’ve got a lot of things in the works. One for sure is we do have Lou Ferrigno… the Hulk, the original, is going to be here, which is amazing. I think everyone can kind of remember and relate to him. We do have a couple of other celebrities that will be coming. One of the originals from Star Trek, can’t say who, but if you were to take a look at the main actors you could play a guessing game and keep a look on our website to see who that’s going to be,” Larsen said. Tickets for Tree City Comic Con go on sale Sunday, June 1.

Rangerstop started with owner Michael Buoni, whose early childhood love of toys and cartoons in the 1980s turned into a huge collector and one of the youngest dealers at toy and comic conventions in the South Florida area, in the early to mid 1990s! Going to local toy stores every week to buy the latest Ninja Turtle toy to rip open and join the others in battle! Then the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers exploded onto the television network and toy aisles quickly turning into one of the greatest phenomenons of our time! Michael now turned his attention from imagination and playing with toys to collecting, buying, and selling! In 2005 Mikey's Toy & Comic Show was born! A few times a year these local shows were held and people all around would come to buy and trade awesome toys, comic books, dolls, and more! The shows ran through 2010 in the Ft Lauderdale area until Mikey's moved to Orlando, Florida. In 2012 Rangerstop was born and he turned his attention to creating an annual Rangerstop Superhero Convention where thousands of fans could celebrate their love for everything Power Rangers, Superheroes, Collecting, and more!

 A stylish and glittery romp through the Synth-Pop world of lust, perseverance, scandal and dreams. Samantha ignites the senses with her appetite for catchy hooks, shimmery keyboards and tasty loops - exploring everything from being at the mercy of the unknown in "Blue Sea" to championing a dream on her title track "Somethin' Good" to sex in the friendly skies with "Hands On Me'. Samantha's beautifully dynamic and expressive vocals paint sensual vignettes of desire, betrayal, love and longing. Produced by Michael Jackson's "This Is It" programmer Dave Polich, all are invited to bite into this tasty and revealing Synth Pop 2011 release from the Songbird who touts an international fan base for her iconic pop culture voice-over work as "JEM" and "JERRICA" in the beloved animated cartoon series "JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS"

MUSIC REVIEW

MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE / JANUARY 2013
Newark's synth-pop material is expertly produced. The erotic big-beat "I got everythig" is post-Abdul dance pop with all It's charms on It's shiny surface. The songs decent hook, dressed with vintage synth FX, builds drama and makes for a solid outing. Bursting with optimism "Somethin' Good" mines a similar vein with excellent vocals. Newark's voice is best on "Take me as I am" where the track takes a back seat to the singers warm maturity. In fact, the ballad is truly where she shines.

"The Voice of JEM Creates Modern Pop Songs with Outrageous Personality"

MUSIC REVIEW

"By Wes LuAllen -Top 25 Musical Happenings of 2011 
Samantha Newark – "Something Good
This is the first album I hit when I want to listen to my MP3s. I start with “Hands on Me”, “Milk and Honey” or “Lover” and just start shuffling through there. To say I’m not biased would be a lie. I don’t want to say that being Jem/Jerica from the 80s cartoon is the only thing that Sam has done but it certainly puts butts in the seats so if I have to say that’s what she’s famous for to get people in the door to hear this amazing album, then so be it. Don’t pigeonhole her because you’ll just embarrass yourself. The album is great and her voice is amazing. This album almost slipped through my fingers and I’m damn glad it didn’t.

MUSIC REVIEW

GAY.NET / 2012 "Somethin' Good is somethin' great!" 
"With each track written by Newark herself Samantha is a storyteller as well - Somethin' Good is Playful, vulnerable and sultry, an absolute joy for any fan of synth-pop—or lover of great music for that matter. Expressive, cleaver and compulsively catchy, Somethin’ Good is everything a great pop album should be."

MUSIC REVIEW

'Somethin' Good"
by Johnny M. Sugar
Samantha Newark's new album a number of electronic styles into a coherent whole, stocked top to bottom with melodic hooks, jumping synths, and a sly, winking humor. Retro harmonies mesh effortlessly with a future-forward attitude that practically leaps from the speakers. More than anything, the album sounds sincere, the product of an artist who knows what she wants. Samantha Newark has created an album all her own. It is, of course, truly outrageous, but it’s also the work of a serious, dedicated artist following her own muse with amazing results. Jem would be proud.

MUSIC REVIEW
