Best Sketchbook Ever (This Week): Jack Kirby Creations From HeroesCon 2013

hcsketchestsm

I'm not much of an original art collector, but getting a sketch from an awesome artist is one of my favorite things to do at a convention. For someone who can't draw at all, watching artists at work is like seeing actual magic happen, and at the end of it, you have a picture of Batman. It's basically the best thing.

Boxes of cheap back issues and the chance to chat with your favorite creators (or, if your standards are a bit lower, your third-favorite comic book critic) are great, but some of the real highlights come from the stuff. And on that front, la

Every week, I sit down to answer your questions in ComicsAlliance's "Ask Chris" column, and since Laura Hudson, Caleb Goellner and I were all in Charlotte this past weekend for HeroesCon, we decided to do it live and in person! It was a blast, but if you weren't at the convention and missed out on seeing it, don't fret: thanks to my pal Dr. K, we recorded the entire hour-long pa

The ComicsAlliance Rob Liefeld World Tour [Photos]

For the ComicsAlliance staff, HeroesCon was a weekend of highlights, but one of our favorite moments of the show was when Editor-in-Chief Laura Hudson, Assistant Editor Caleb Goellner and Senior Writer Chris Sims got their picture taken with none other than Rob Liefeld:

For the record, Liefeld was as nice in person as you've probably heard, and was totally cool with three people running up to grab a picture when he was picking up a package at the front desk. We imagine he gets that a lot.

ComicsAlliance Heads to HeroesCon — Come to Our ‘Ask Chris’ Panel!

askchrisheroescon2010

If you're heading to HeroesCon this weekend, we got good news: We're coming too! The entire senior staff -- Laura Hudson, Caleb Goellner, and Chris Sims -- is traveling to Charlotte, NC to cover the event, and as a special bonus feature, we'll have our own ComicsAlliance panel at 2 PM on Sunday in Room 206 where you can thrill to meeting us all in person!

We'll be doing a special live version of our "Ask Chris" feature, which we imagine will look a lot like the Rusty Shackles image above, where Chris and I brawl it out while Caleb quietly judges us from the sidelines. Mostly, though, we're going to need you to make the panel go round, so
