Via Colleen Coover the “Comics are not literature” panel from San Diego that was practically the only provocative one, as far as we can tell, is up. We haven’t listened yet, but it’s very high on our catch up list. Image of Douglas Wolk, Dan Nadel, and Sara Ryan stolen from Coover. Who just got […]
This is it! The trilogy ends! SD07 Report III starring Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, Mike Myers, Tobey Maguire and Johnny Depp. Third time the charm! Third time bloated and off the track Third time not as good as it used to be. Third time looking old and fat. Friday night was another madhouse. There […]

Yet more very late photos. This was …. Friday? Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray sign THE HILLS HAVE EYES: THE BEGINNING at the Fox Atomic booth.
From the moment I walked into the convention center I knew I was outmoded, outmatched, outclassed. Although I had always mocked the idea of a Blackberry (working on the web, the idea of being web free is like the idea of having some time off) as I found myself pinned down under attack by an […]
Pathetically late, we know, but we earned that vacation. Above, Charles Vess and one of his gorgeous sculptures. More in the jump.
