Untitled-221

With hundreds of panels to choose from at San Diego Comic-Con, the show can be an overwhelming experience — and it’s far too easy to miss a panel you think you might have loved, or to find yourself on the wrong side of the con floor five minutes before a great panel is about to start!

Take heart, brave reader. ComicsAlliance has sifted through the schedule to offer up our pick of the best programming at the con. Today we offer our suggested highlights for day two, Friday July 25, 2014 — with an emphasis on comics programming.

Privacy And Isolation In Brian K. Vaughan And Marcos Martin’s ‘The Private Eye’

Untitled-1

Internet privacy is easily one of the most confusing realities of life in the 21st century. It's the best ongoing story in collective awareness, complete with heroes, villains, victims and martyrs, turning points, and insane plot twists that regularly put The Good Wife to shame. PRISM, Wikileaks, Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, XBox One, social engineering, News International, Anonymous, and even our stupid Facebook updates are all involved. Every player and plot-line are all tangled up in a worried knot that gets bigger and more complex every year. It's all one story, and we're all living it; spectators, beneficiaries, victims, and contributors. It's one of the defining issues of our age, a still-forming zeitgeist that could be explored for years to come.

Just not in comics. Because nobody's going to top Brian K. Vaughan, Marcos Martin, and Muntsa Vicente's The Private Eye.

Comics Alliance Reader Choice Awards: Best Writer [Poll]

comicsalliance2

2013 was a great year for comics. It feels like a similar statement is made after every year concludes, but 2013 unquestionably saw exceptional work from several creators, across multiple publishers and genres within the medium. To close out the year, we offered what we felt to be the best comics of the year, highlighting dozens of writers and artists whose creative output we felt deserved to be celebrated.

But now we want to hear from you. Readers often offer us their opinions, via the comment section or social media, as to what they’re enjoying, or what they think we missed. Now we’d like you to let us know with your vote, as this week we’re launching the first annual ComicsAlliance Reader Choice Awards. We’ll have two categories per day throughout the week, and you can vote more than once if you like, though you’ll have to wait an hour at least before coming back to vote again. Voting will be open until February 11 at 10 a.m. EST, and we’ll announce the winners shortly after.

We’re kicking things off with Best Writer, and you can cast your vote after the cut.

‘Building Stories,’ ‘Saga’ Dominate 2013 Eisner Awards [SDCC 2013]

Untitled-1

Industry professionals new and old gathered last night for the 2013 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards at Comic-Con International in San Diego, and it proved to be a big night for Chris Ware, Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples. Ware's Building Stories took home four awards, including Best Writer/Artist and Best Publication Design, while Vaughan and Staples' Saga swept its three categories: Best Continuing Series, Best New Series and Best Writer. Among the highlights of the evening was several award recipients and presenters using their time on stage to offer a few kind words in remembrance of Kim Thompson, the legendary Fantagraphics co-publisher who passed away last month.

And while we regretfully inform you that ComicsAlliance was not among the evening's winners, we once again thank the judges for considering us.

You can see a complete list of nominees and winners below.

Earlier this week writer Brian K. Vaughan transmitted a press release stating that the latest issue of his and Fiona Staples sci-fi comic Saga would not be available for in-app purchase via ComXology or anything else in Apple's App Store for iOS devices, citing "two postage stamp-sized images of gay sex." Specifically, the artwork depicted graphic oral sex between men, including several ejaculations. While ComicsAlliance chalked the apparent banning up to the App Store's consistently inconsistan
