Even though the crowds of Comic-Con International might be a huge hassle, there's one thing that we can all agree on as being well worth the trouble: Burritos. And being able to talk to our favorite creators about their upcoming projects, I guess, but seriously, the burritos out there are amazing.

Emerald City Comicon, a time when the "Seattle Freeze" thaws and comic creators, consumers, and costumers are welcomed into the city's warm embrace. The event also marks the beginning of convention season, a frenzied (and friendly) whirlwind that will run until the close of New York Comic Con in October
Of all the books that were part of the excellent Extreme Studios relaunch this year, Joe Keatinge and Ross Campbell's Glory was far and away my favorite. The epic story, the beautifully drawn battles, the quiet character moments, all of them combined to make it one of my favorite comics of the year. With Glory #34, though, a stor
The Metro Convention Centre in downtown Toronto played host to Fan Expo Canada this past weekend. The event is Canada's largest nerd convention and has been billed as "the third largest pop culture event in North America," though that doesn't count the forthcoming Avril Lavigne/Nickelback wedding.
