SPX 2007: Family, Redefined

spx_2005_header_455

My day began with a fruitless search for the charger for my camera's battery, followed by an equally fruitless search for a store that might sell me a replacement, so I'm afraid I must begin with an apology for the lack of on-the-scene photos

Garth Ennis Kills with ‘Punisher’ and ‘JLA/Hitman’

pun51_270

I was doing my monthly "will work for store credit" day of moonlighting at the comic store yesterday and there was one question that kept coming up customer after customer: "Do you know when Punisher #51 is coming out?" Given that #50 came out over two months ago, and given that that double-sized issue ended on a jaw-dropping cliffhanger, the slight edge of hysteria in the tone of some of the customers asking me this question was certainly understandable. The good news is that #51 will (finally) be in stores this week, and the bad

Matt Kindt’s Masterful ‘Super Spy’ Dossier

super_spy_cover

Matt Kindt is not yet a household name in the comics field, and this fact borders on the criminal. You see, Kindt has quietly been producing noir masterpieces with almost frightening consistency for a number of years now, first in collaboration with Jason Hall (Pistolwhip volumes 1 and 2, and Mephisto and the Empty Box), and then on his own as the writer/artist of 2 Siste

Baltimore Comic-Con 2007 Wrap-Up

baltimore-2007-banner

This past weekend was my first time at the Baltimore Comic-Con since 2002, and wow, has this show ever come into its own! Sure, New York and San Diego had movie and tv stars –and those shows certainly basked in the reflected glow of Hollywood glamour as a result– but what the Baltimore Comic-Con has to offer is, in some respects, even more special: an honest-to-goodness, old-fashioned (and gloriously, unrepentantly so at that) comic book convention

The DCU Panel at the Baltimore Comic-Con, Featuring the Vocal Stylings of Cully Hamner

Unlike their Marvel-ous competition, the DC crew arrived in Baltimore with a bunch of exclusive announcements in their back pocket. You've probably already read a few of those announcements in Dooley's coverage of yesterday's DC Nation panel, but this afternoon'

Mike Mignola Raises Hell in Baltimore

Day two of the Baltimore Comic-Con started for me (and for many others) with a Mike Mignola Q&A in which the writer/artist engaged in an hour-long exchange with his fans that was as thoughtful as it was personable.

Not surprisingly, many of the questions centered around the Hellbo

A Tribute to Mike Wieringo at the Baltimore Comic-Con

I was as surprised as anyone to learn of Mike Wieringo's untimely death at the age of 44 last month due to a sudden heart attack brought on by a congenital, hereditary problem with his aorta. Having never had the pleasure of meeting the artist, whose work I've long admired, it seemed a no-brainer to attend the tribute being held in his honor at the Baltimore Comic-Con

Mondo Marvel at the Baltimore Comic-Con

Being the first post-summer show, the Baltimore Comic-Con is at a bit of a disadvantage as it lands after the mega-shows of the summer and before the big retailer meetings of the fall. What this means is that while both of "the big two" establish a pres
