Convention season is upon us! This weekend it's the Emerald City Comicon in Seattle and, if you're planning on attending, we've put together a handy list of some of the more interesting sounding panels and events. Chances are pretty good that we'll be covering a lot of the news out of the con this weekend and early next week here-no less than three of our number will be in attendance-but, in the meantime, here's a look back at some of last week's news, after the jump.
Publishing:


-Marvel continues to tease their upcoming Spider-Men project... which is starting to look like it may actually be the once-unthinkable crossover between Ultimate Spider-Man and regular Spider-Man

-Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson explains why a comic book selling out isn't exactly the best news...the same week Marvel announced their sell-out of Avengers Vs. X-Men #0

Previews:

Reviews:


-Lauren Davis on Crossed: Wish You Were Here...





Film:


-As they continue their discussion of the Superman franchise, Chris Sims and David Uzumeri have turned their sites on Superman II





TV:

-The team starring in the second season of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes will apparently be having a membership drive, based on the looks of this single, character-packed still from the show. If they all make the cut, then it looks like they may rival the Justice League of Justice League Unlimited in terms of members.

Art:

-Link, Ramona, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, Robocop...artist Jesus Alberto Garza Lopez draws some of our favorite things

-Artist Bjorn Hurri's steam punk Star Wars art puts a wookie in a top hat...and does some other rather cool stuff too, but man, it's hard to beat a wookie in a top hat.
