Each week, ComicsAlliance’s Chris Sims and Matt Wilson host the War Rocket Ajax podcast, their online audio venue for interviews with comics creators, reviews of the books of the week, and whatever else they want to talk about. ComicsAlliance is offering clips of the comics-specific segments of the show several days before the full podcast goes up at WarRocketAjax.c
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.
Last month, ComicsAlliance launched its first ever Reader Choice Awards. We spend all year telling you what we like (and don't like), but we wanted to hear from you. We had seven different polls, asking voters to make their choices for best editor, colorist, writer/artist, cover artist, design, artist and writer for the previous year in comics.
Voting concluded this morning, and the results are in. Thanks to all of you who voted, and otherwise spread the word. You can check out a list of the winners below.
Thumb through DC Comics' new releases this week and you'll find the above image -- a teaser for the upcoming Batman: Eternal weekly series -- in the back pages of a good many of them (all the books I saw, in fact).
I had to look up the artist who drew it. It's Detective Comics artist Jason Fabok, but it could just as easily be Tony Daniel, David Finch, Guillem March, Ivan Reis, Adrian Syaf, or a handful of other current DC artists. Like it or not, this is, with a few exceptions, just how DC Comics look now.
Comics pros eligible to vote in the 2013 Harvey Awards now have a full list of final nominees to consider, and have until August 19 to cast their votes online. Marvel's Hawkeye, by Matt Fraction, David Aja and others,and Image's Saga,by Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples and others, tied for the most nominations with seven each, including best writer, best artist and best single issue. Both books also earned nods for best new series and best continuing series.
Bro. Let me tell you about Pizza Dog (also known as Lucky, formerly known as Arrow) and why his spotlight story in the latest issue of his owner's comic "Hawkeye" (also known as "Hawkguy") is one of the best comics ever.
With the Lego: Marvel Superheroes video game set to hit shelves in the fall, Marvel Comics has found a fun way to promote the debut. This coming September, the publisher will release Lego themed variant covers for nearly two dozen of its titles. This announcement comes the same day the new trailer for Lego: Marvel Superheroes debuted at E3. You can check out the new trailer and some of Lego variants after the cut.
Look, as much as we all love Clint Barton and Kate Bishop, I think I can state with some degree of confidence that we're all reading Hawkeye just as much to follow the ongoing adventures of his canine cohort and confidant known as Pizza Dog. Sure, he hasn't exactly been front and center through the first year of the book, but that all changes on June 19 in Matt Fraction and David Aja's Hawkeye #11.
