A recap of the Secret Wars: Battleworld panel that teases a lot of upcoming battles in the Marvel Universe.
C2E2’s on once again, and just like your favorite superhero who is–yet isn’t–quite the same, it’s being held again in the same place, but different. (Oh, how I await the day when it takes up the entire complex! 2.6 MILLION sq.ft. of exhibit space! 60 acres! 45 football fields! Can you imagine the programming going […]
I’ve been raving about all the great comics art that was up at the Society of Illustrators during April for the MoCCA fest, but they’re not stopping with Alt.Comix, Little Nemo and Craig Yoe. The new exhibit is a show of Hugo Pratt art. The creator of Corto Maltese is one of the all time great comics illustrators and this sounds like a must see. The show runs until June 13th, so get on down!
C2E2 has hosted Ink Fusion before, and this year, things get rather interesting! As the site says: Join the legendary Stan Lee, as he teams up with Ink-Fusion creator Marc Draven and his Empire of artists to offer a once in a life time chance for a tattoo drawn by Stan Lee himself! Raffle tickets […]
Well, we’ve recovered from the East Coast Comic Con and MoCCA Fest. Did our taxes. Watched the trailers. And this weekend, instead of relaxing and ruminating…I’m getting my act together to fly to Chicago on Thursday, for ReedPOP’s C2E2 show! (And if you think my schedule is crazy, the ReedPOP crew is in Anaheim right now, […]
A new and potentially awful chapter in Con Wars opened up today.
The Honey Badgers are the ladies auxiliary of the MRA (Men’s Rights Advocates) groups, and MRA groups are largely affiliated with GamerGate, the endlessly annoying group that has been fighting diversity behind a shield of anti-censorship for the last since last summer. And sadly this warzone—mostly held on social media until now—just got dragged into the real world of the Calgary Expo.
Huh, what was I just saying? 10 minutes ago? It seems that Stan Lee has pacted yet again, this time for Apple co-founder and Silicon Valley free spirit to starts something that is sorely lacking in the world, another comic con! This time the Silicon Valley Comic Con for San Jose—and they’ve already acquired this […]
Looks like something of a shakeup is underway at Image, as Director of Business Development Ron Richards has also departed the company following Jennifer DeGuzman’s exit last week. Richards—formerly a mainstay at the website/podcast iFanboy and the co-organizer of Morrison Con— wrote about it in a post at Medium:
Clallam Bay Comicon, a small town comicon located on the Olympic Peninsula, has announced two special guests for their fifth annual show, to be held July 11-12, 2015, in the Lion’s Club building. Returning once again is Roberta Gregory, noted cartoonist of “Naughty Bits” and various bio-comics. Appearing for the first time will be Linda Medley, […]
By Nick Eskey For the three years that WonderCon has been in the Anaheim convention center, I’ve been very fortunate to attend it. I say fortunate because compared to my local San Diego Comic Con, this one is much more relaxed. Replacing the large media influence and the sardine-cramped spaces, there is ease and Fandom. […]
Actually not a con war, but a curiosity of scheduling with both the MoCCA Festival and Crucial Entertainment East Coast Comicon in the Meadowlands both scheduled for this weekend. When I originally heard about the scheduling I was told that it had all been worked out and there was no beef, but it’s still unfortunate […]

When I was a younger sprout in comics I often wondered if there had been any more women cartoonists than Marie Severin and Ramonda Fradon? What about in France where they loved cartoonistss? The ver very great Claire Bretecher was often mentioned but was that it?
Well, it turns out that all along there were other great French woman cartoonists, including Annie Goetzinger, whose amazing Girl in Dior is out now. Tonight she signs at the Kinokuniya Bookstore before apeparing MoCCA all weekend and going on tour on the below dates:
