AICN COMICS NYCC REPORT: Day Two!!!
Hey folks, it’s Ambush Bug here at the New York Comic Con. I'm abouto head out for the con again after a whirlwind of a first day. Lots of hand shaking, interview planning, and general zombie-ing around the aisles yesterday. Today is interview day and I'll have a boatload of them to share when I get back.
A few quick news bits:
IDW Publishing is going to have a cool mini-non-crossover involving their TRANSFORMERS, GI JOE, GHOSTBUSTERS, and STAR TREK books called INFESTATION where their ZOMBIES VS ROBOTS book spills into each of their universes. This usually wouldn't be my type of thing, but then I heard the creative team of Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning were writing the thing and I was immediately interested.
In other IDW Publishing news, Eric THE GOON Powell will be writing and supplying covers for a new GODZILLA comic and they promise to not only to deliver much carnage from the classic monster, but also a ton of other classic giant monsters for the first time in comics history together again!
I'm going to check out the new LADY DEATH today at the Avatar booth and I'll be reporting back to you guys about how this new incarnation "stacks" up.
Marvel announced that Andy Diggle and Adi Granov will be taking on a new ASTONISHING CAPTAIN AMERICA series set during World War Two! Art looks pretty fantastic and I always check out stuff from Diggle! Should be fun.
There's also going to be a new WOLVERINE & JUBILEE miniseries that ties into their CURSE OF THE MUTANTS crossover. Daniel Way takes over writing ASTONISHING X-MEN. And the X-Men and SPidey team up for their second act of CURSE OF THE MUTANTS in "To Serve & Protect."
In DC news, Nick Spencer is writing SUPERGIRL, Mike Mayhew will be writing GREEN ARROW, and The Source has previews of DC's new Batman books, BATMAN THE DARK NIGHT from David Finch and BATMAN INC. from Morrison and Yanick Paquette posted.
Stopped by the Atlas / Ardden Entertainment booth and the COM.X booths and picked up some of their books. More details coming soon on what I picked up in particular, but if you're at the con, stop by these smaller press publishers. They've got some really promising books available at their booths.
Well, I am out of here. Headed back to the con for interviews all day. My pal, Matt Pizzolo and BATTLESTAR GALACTICA's Nicki Clyne will be signing Halo-8's GODKILLER DVD at the Graphic.ly booth at 5 tongiht. So be sure to swing by and check them out.
Tonight is going to be tough. Whereas there wasn't much going on last night aside from drinking and schmoozing, tonight there are three events I need to check out. I'm going to have to decide between seeing Seattle's nerd rock back Kirby Krackle in concert, a 11:30pm screening of Halo-8's GRANT MORRISON: TALKING WITH GODS Documentary from director Patrick Meany (at 122 East 12th St, advance tickets can be found on the website), or a live radio show of Archaia's MOON LAKE from Dan Fogler followed by a midnight screening of his new film HYSTERICAL PSYCHO at the same theater. Decisions, decisions...
I'll check back tomorrow with more.

That is all

Sorry, being first doesn't happen to me often so I thought I'd better ramp up the obnoxiousness a notch.

I wanted to read the article, but had to stop because it hurt my eyes.

Feel like i've been waitin' a while... lets do this. Lord Death Man FTW.

What no pictures of Lady Death?

I figured Marvel made her ass defunct. I have not heard shit about that character in I don't know how long.
Oct. 9, 2010, 1:23 p.m. CST
That is a real bummer. He knows how to really write a teen superhero, and he undid the 33 issues of crap that got piled on to Kara. Though Spencer's Jimmy Olsen back up has been pretty great so not all is lost.

I would frak her blind. Then send her out a launch tube.
Oct. 9, 2010, 2:10 p.m. CST
I'd like to know about that teaser.

Nice. Can't wait to read that.

NYCC today, during the "V" panel, Morena Baccarin (AKA Inara from Firefly) paused from answering questions for a second so she could take pictures of the audience with her iphone. Very cute. Also, the "Ladies of Battlestar Galactica" panel was cool, Tricia Helfer and Katee Sackhoff seemed to be having a lot of fun up there. Katee saying she had been cast to be the next Wonder Woman, everyone getting hyped, then her going "just kidding" being the highlight. NYCC was fun, would go again. Got to meet Christopher Judge from Stargate: SG1.

I got an email about a comic version of Epic Mickey and a comic about Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and his adventures in The Wasteland - "Tales from the Wasteland" is what I think it's called. The sample pages looked freaking amazing, and the stories look really interesting. I hope someone from AICN will be posting more info about this; it looks like the most imaginative and innovative content Disney's offered us for years. Can't wait to see more.

Joss Wheden --> Warren Ellis --> Daniel Way?<BR> <BR> That's like trading in your Camaro for a Trans Am, then trading in your Trans Am for a bowl of asparagus and the bowl of asparagus has a hair in it.

Who's on art? Marc Silvestri?

A huge Comic Con and no Hollywood presence.

I like this. After an intriguing, yet ultimately-empty first issue, I had mixed feelings about Morning Glories. Really liked the second one, but I refuse to buy it because the art is that bad. It looks like a web comic. The colors look like someone just learned photoshop. Bleagh. Anyway, maybe Supergirl will have art good enough to keep is what I'm saying.
