Comic Con – Preview Night

Comic Con 2010 finally begins! Those who were able to purchase a 4 day pass were given the option of attending preview night. An opportunity to be the first to grab free swag and check out the show room floor. Kevin and I were in attendance so were going to walk you through our trip around the show room.

Dustin – Knowing that the movie and video game booths are always crazy the first night I tend to avoid those booths so I started at the comics. Over at Marvel’s booth they have Odin’s thrown as their set piece. It was huge and golden with Joey Q Marvel’s CCO standing upon it! It was quite the show stopper. At DC’s booth Morgan Spurlock stopped by and chatted with attendees. Morgan is currently making a documentary about Comic Con so his attendance is a no brainer. The big surprise for me was the amount of fans and people at the Oni Press booth.

You Missed That Issue – The Walking Dead # 49

Welcome to a new series spotlighting some of the best single issues in comics from the past decade. You will not find Watchmen, Sin City, Dark Phoenix Saga or Action Comics #775 anywhere on this list. These are comics that, with a little effort, you’ll find on the Internet or lost in the back issues of your comic book store. Because this article is not a review, and since these issues are not necessarily new, any surprise, cliffhanger or death will be spoiled in an attempt to show why the book shouldn’t have been missed.

So that being said, welcome to: You Missed That Issue! The Walking Dead #49.Since 2003, Robert Kirkman has been writing this apocalyptic tale while Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn have handled the art. Here is a brief breakdown of the series before this stand out issue.

Has Scarlet Changed Comics?

Since its announcement at C2E2 earlier this year, Scarlet became one of the most anticipated comic releases of the year. It was writer, Brian Michael Bendis’ first creator owned project since Powers. It also re-teamed him with Daredevil artist Alex Maleev for the first time on a monthly project since they left the series that made them stars. But could anyone really tell just from that, that this book would change the way comics are narrated?

Scarlet exists as a comic/movie/novel hybrid. That is to say, that the narrative and art are at times only one of these and others all three at once. Bendis narrates the story but using a movie and comic no-no… he breaks the fourth wall. If you’re unfamiliar with this term it can most easily be defined in movie terms. In Ferris Buller when Ferris turns and talks to the audience he is breaking the fourth wall, which is the movie screen. This is very uncommon in comics for several reasons.

5 Most/Least Patriotic Comic Characters (Besides Captain America)

The 4th of July is upon us and what better way to celebrate then to take a look at some of the most patriotic comic characters that are out there. Right off the bat we’re going to eliminate Captain America and any of his numerous knock offs (US Agent, Fighting American… Bucky, you get the picture). Instead these are the characters that love this country so much that they bleed red, white and blue.

Where’s my Borderlands Comic?

With all the recent comic book adaptations of top selling video games out there, you’d expect that 2K would jump on board. After all, the stories are basically already written and the characters flushed out with hours of gameplay. So here’s my proposal for what should be their first comic book adaptation… Borderlands

The Setting

Borderlands happens to be one big set piece that has the potential of being a dumping ground for stories. Since there are only mentions of Pandora’s history, it leaves the back story for the world widely untapped. What would work the best to capture Pandora and all of its locations, would be a series of one shots featuring different characters (new or old) to explain the world. Of course they would need to be narrated by Marcus Kincaid to give it the feel and narrative that the game already has.

You Missed That Issue! Booster Gold 1,000,000

Welcome to another “You Missed That Issue!” This time we have Booster Gold’s addition to DC’s 1.000.000 series. If you’re unfamiliar with the “million” concept, it was DC’s experiment to show what the comics we know and love now might look like when they reach the million issue. It was also their way of saying that they plan on being here and making comics until they get to that point and beyond. When Booster Gold was announced after 52 wrapped up, Geoff Johns and company thought it would be funny to give Booster a million issue so as to say that the character is strong enough and important enough to make it that far.

So why this issue? Why not any of the great issues before this issue? It’s simple… the last line of the book. It’s a single moment that caps off the story and makes the strongest statement about the title and its importance. But we can’t simply jump to the end, for the ending means nothing taken out of context.
