Untitled-2

As you know from our weekly Best Cosplay Ever feature, we are big fans of cosplay at ComicsAlliance. The comics, sci-fi, gaming and fantasy communities’ talents for homemade disguises, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics are definitely on display this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, and you’d better believe our own Pat Loika is on hand to document as much as he can. Scroll down for some exceptional examples of superheroic cosplaying talent that we spotted in San Diego!

Master Storyteller Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez To Draw Harlan Ellison’s Lost Batman ’66 Episode For DC Digital

Untitled-1

The hits keep coming out of DC Comics' west coast digital comics division, whose senior editor Jim Chadwick announced at Comic-Con International that the next release from his Batman '66 line will be The Lost Episode. What makes this a big is twofold: the lost episode is indeed a lost episode of the classic 1960s television series starring Adam West and Burt Ward, and it was written by none other than Harlan Ellison; award-winning television, writer, novelist, comics scribe, and notorious litigant. Secondly, the special issue will be drawn by José Luis García-López, one of the best comic book artists of all time. Adapting the script for comics will be Len Wein, a legendary comics figure in his own right.

DC hasn't released clean images from the project yet, but we know that Ellison's unproduced script would have introduced Harvey "Two-Face" Dent into the television series.

Comic-Con Cosplay Spotlight: The Most Depressed Homer Simpson Ever

Untitled-1

Spotted by ComicsAlliance photographer Pat Loika walking away from the San Diego Convention Center on Thursday was doubtlessly the most forlorn Homer Simpson we've ever seen in 3D space (unless you count that whole 3D episode where Homer was, like, cripplingly depressed at the end). Our speculation is that this cosplay takes place after the events of 1995's "Homer the Great," when it turned out that Homer was heir to the throne of a secret society that rules the world... until it turned out he wasn't, and he was cast out for being a false idol as well as general jackassery. Sorry, spoilers.

Uncredited Batman Co-Creator Bill Finger’s Family Accepts Posthumous Inkpot Award At Panel Celebrating His Work

FingerPanel

As one might suspect, the major thrust of Thursday's "Spotlight on Bill Finger, Co-Cceator of Batman" panel was that Bill Finger never got the credit he deserved.

Comic-Con's organizers made one big gesture to make up for that, presenting Finger's granddaughter, Athena Finger, with a posthumous Inkpot Award just as the panel got started. The panelists tried their best to heap credit on Finger, too.

Mike Mignola Illustrates ‘Toy Story That Time Forgot’ Poster For Pixar TV Special

moviestoy-story-that-time-forgot-poster-1

Well, that was unexpected. I mean, we knew Pixar and ABC were working on a followup to last year's exceptionally great Toy Story Of Terror! Halloween special, this one called Toy Story That Time Forgot, but we really didn't anticipate Mike Mignola to be the one selected to make it official in an inescapably cool Comic-Con exclusive poster.

Among the colorful cosplay, massive booths, interactive displays and walls of merchandise at Comic-Con International in San Diego — colloquially known as SDCC — remains the most important component of the show: comic book creators. ComicsAlliance photographer and Loikiamania podcast host Pat Loika hit the show floor to catch the men and women who tell our favorite stories in sequential art and captured the enthusiasm that comes from fans getting to meet their favorite storytellers at one of the biggest conventions of the year.
