Offering a notably comics-specific, distinctly warm and fuzzy vibe that's not to be found at some of the massive and monstrous, comics-suppressing conventions here in the US, Seattle's Emerald City Comicon feels a lot more like comics summer camp than it does a media trade show. Comics professionals from all dimensions of the industry -- creators, publishers, press and beyond -- all look forward to ECCC for the same reasons attendees do; it's a great weekend to meet your readers, meet your favorite authors, and celebrate the medium we all love.
Also, buying cool stuff.
That same summer camp quality that makes ECCC worth attending may also make it worth commemorating, which is why it makes sense that geek fashion hausWe Love Finehas made its first ever partnership with a convention with a limited edition line of t-shirts. Featuring Marvel characters like Captain Marvel, Hawkeye and Deadpool as well as other We Love Fine licenses like My Little Pony, Transformers, ElfQuest, Bravest Warriors, Adventure Time and Bee & Puppycat alongside Seattle iconography (very cute), the ECCCxWLF collection will be available exclusively for $25 each at the Seattle show from March 27-30.
Humankind's understanding of sleep has come a long way in the year 3085, but even so, there's plenty of complexities to consider when navigating the Dream Dimension. That's the trouble Wallow faces in Bravest Warriors #16, which arrives in stores and on digital platforms from Boom! Studios on January 22nd. In a tale written by Tessa Stone and illustrated by Mike Holmes, Bravest Warriors team leader Chris is discovered to be the inadvertent host of an alien parasite known as a Dreamadon. Dreamadon? More like Drama-don! You can see what Wallow and Chris are up against -- along with BW covers by Tyson Hesse, Terry Blas, Jason Adams and Ian Bertram -- in our first-look at the issue, after the jump.
It looks like Beth of the Bravest Warriors may just prove herself the most relatable member of the team in next week's Boom! Studios issue. You see, in Bravest Warriors #15, the heroine comes across a box of her childhood toys. At first she contemplates cleaning house by donating them (a fine idea!), but then? She reminds herself why action figures perhaps the greatest technical/spiritual achievement in the history of humankind. Ryan Pequin makes it all clear in his "Childish Things" short by Whitney Cogar, followed by a "Food Court" tale by Coleman Engle and a "Danny Divided" story by Tessa Stone. Boom! has provided us with a first look at the issue, with fives full pages of Pequin's short. Click through and prepare to hold your action figures tight.
Pen Ward's surprisingly well-adjusted teens from the year 3085 look like they'll be cutting loose on October 23 in Bravest Warriors #13. Writer Eric M. Esquivel, artist Mike Holmes, colorist Lisa Moore, and letterer Steve Wands pit the team against the fierce "Periodic Table of Evil" on page one, and don't let up from there with a plot that involves Danny experimenting with insect poison during a perilous vision quest. You know, the usual kind of deal. Boom! Studios has provided CA with a first look at the latest assembly of adventure, which you can click through to preview in full.
Pendleton Ward's Bravest Warriors have been known to flex some muscle in their Cartoon Hangover animated adventures and comic books from Boom! Studios, but fans will soon be able to take over for the futuristic (and emotional) teens with a line of bendies from Pop Culture Shock Toys. Rubber and wire-based versions of Chris, Beth, Wallow and Danny were all on display at booth #1454 this weekend at New York City Comic Con 2013with an estimated release in the first quarter of 2014 at $9.99 a piece. Sadly, there's no Catbug or Impossibear Bendie... yet, but there are some plush and bobblehead options for both characters on the way from Pop Culture Shock coming next year.
Between the talents of writer Joey Comeau, artist Mike Holmes and cover artists Tyson Hesse, Kory Bing, Ian McGinty and Jongmee Kim, Boom! Studios is hardly has to twist anyone's arm to read its ongoing all-ages Bravest Warriors comic. Still, if they want to promise more Catbug in Bravest Warriors #13, well, that should suit everyone with a heart just fine. Boom! has provided CA with a first look at the upcoming October issue, along with the promise of more page time for perhaps the cutest new character from the year 3085.
