We’re outta here.
Better late than never! Please at least scroll through this (very incomplete) listing of new books out at MoCCA and just look at the pictures if nothing els.e There are some pretty amazing books coming out that haven’t gotten that much press, so I think it’s wroth your while.
by Mile Scigliano — There’s been so much made of locations and dates for shows in the last few years. For 2012 it’s been so crazy the fine folks at CCI had to move WonderCon to Anaheim from San Francisco — 400 PLUS miles away. Let’s look at what it takes to lock in a date for your show.
Just a brief guide to some publishers and creators and stuff to look out for!
As we’ve been putting together the listings for this bi-coastal duel indie comics weekend extravaganza, it occurs to us that we are just not very plugged in to the Portland scene…well not the way we are NYC that’s for sure. So we’re doing our best to cover this, but maybe what we need is a PDX correspondent?
Anyhoo, Stumptown actually has a great events page with all the weekend goings on. So we’ll put post the pictures and links here. Send us reports!
The Bonfire Agency came on the scene a year ago with some great ideas for giving all levels of the comics industry more information; this month they are spotlighting one of the best, FanPan, a consumer input panel of 500 pop culture users and influencers. It’s free to join FanPan, but brands and products can then avail themselves of FanPan input to test how their products will be received by the highly vocal and internet-savvy early adopters.
Well, things got a little more interesting. After a two-year hiatus, Devil’s Due publishing just announced they have returned—and they’ll be distributed by Damond which is a bit of a surprise because Devil’s Due had previously pulled out of Diamond with some hubbub. But you know, this is comics, and squabbles are rarely eternal.
So many events for MoCCA this year! Rev up your MetroCard and get up on it. With a little cabfare here and there you can hit three or four of these!
A whole lotta Game of Thrones news, a hilarious Samuel L. Jackson press clip for The Avengers, a tidbit about the latest offering from Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, etcetera…
