While not as organized or -- it has to be said -- hilarious as 2010's Westoboro Baptist Church protest against the heretical idolatry expressed at Comic-Con International in San Diego in the form of (super)hero worship and other acts of fierce geekery, this year's SDCC did come with some amount of inexplicable Christian objection. Naturally, the Comic-Con goers responded in a manner befitting the occasion.
I'm not even kidding a little bit when I say that the Comic-Con event I was looking forward to the most was the 40th Anniversary of Funky Winkerbean panel featuring the strip's creator, Tom Batiuk. As the record will show, I am thoroughly obsessed wit
Last week, we brought you the news of the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog / Mega Man crossover from Archie, a twelve-part event by Ian Flynn and Patrick "Spaz" Spaziante in which the two popular (and blue) video game characters meet for the very first time. The series is still a ways off, but Comic-Con gave us the opportunity to learn a little more from editor Paul Kaminski about the series, and show off an all
For the past few years, Pendleton Ward's Adventure Time has made a pretty good showing at Comic-Con. Last year it was a parade of Finns with a life-sized Lady Rainicorn marching through the Gaslamp District, and this year, Cartoon Network went the extra mile to get the fans involved with the Adventure Time Experience.
Set up in San Diego's Children's Museum -- and marked b
If the announcement of an upcoming comic book series based on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic wasn't enough to satisfy your curiosity about everyone's favorite equestrian pals, don't worry. In addition to a teaser for Season 3 of the show, members of the voice cast and the writing staff joined the press for a Q&A session where they discussed everyt
In the words of the poet Dirk Garthwaite, check yourself before you wreck yourself: it's the Avengers versus X-Men panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Regular readers of ComicsAlliance will know that I've been keeping track of developments in Marvel's big summer event series -- and keeping score between the sides -- in my ComicsAlliance Vs. AvX recaps.
Comic-Con 2012 has featured a few big announcements from several publishers. Not to be outdone, Image dropped a few of their own. At their panel on Saturday, Editor-in-Chief EricStephenson was joined on stage by Matt Fraction, Joe Casey, Darick Robertson, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Howard Chaykin, Chris Roberson, James Robinson and Greg Rucka, each of whom will be doing new projects for the publisher in the coming year.
Stephenson opened the panel by himself and announced a f
The hotly anticipated Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con has revealed a flood of new details for Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Phase One consisted of the Iron Man, Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America movies leading in to this year's mega-blockbuster Avengers movie. We now know tha
What else can we say? The new Man of Steel Comic-Con movie poster straight up zooms in Superman's chest, making its Kryptonian fabric the arguably oppressive subject of the image. Superhero suits and other sci-fi uniforms have taken on a decidedly textured aesthetic over the past few
The Marvel booth debuted Tony Stark's upgraded Iron Man 3 movie armor today at San Diego Comic-Con, surprising many fans with its inverted red/gold colors. It's still unknown just what the implications of this armor will be in the film (or if it will function similarly to Iron Man's Extremis storyline suit), but there's a good chance more info will devel
