By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting Hi, Everyone! Last week I discussed my attendee experience at 2022’s Kumoricon. However, now I’d like to discuss my experience with presenting.

Source: Opening, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners By: Beata Garrett | @clearsummers If you’re not quite sure whether to watch Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, the new Netflix anime based on a video game, Cyberpunk 2077, I would say it is worth it. It’s a messy experience, with interesting themes and storylines that are sometimes dragged out for too long or cut too short.
