So my goal today, after a scant five hours of sleep, was to stroll Artist Alley and find some cool stuff. Oh, and attend Jimmy Palmiotti’s panel. More on that below… Torsten Adair I’ve been writing for The Beat since July of 2010. I’ve been reading comics since 1974, collecting since 1984, and spreading the […]

by David Nieves One of the key events in Chicago this weekend is all about the people who sell comics. The DC midwest retailer summit was once again held right before C2E2. Dan DiDio gave his usual passionate speech about the industry and DC Entertainment’s product. But he did address the concerns from retailers about […]

Marvel are kicking off a weekend of announcements today with news about some Original Sin tie-ins. The main Original Sin series will see The Watcher get shot up something rotten, his eyeballs getting ripped out, and everybody finding out deep and dark secrets which previously only Uatu knew about.

Earlier today, DC Comics kicked off their C2E2 weekend in Chicago with “All Access”. The star studded panel included Bobbie Chase, Brian Azzarello, Charles Soule, Dan Jurgens, Greg Lockard, Greg Pak, Jim Chadwick, Kyle Higgins, Nicola Scott, and Scott Snyder.
While there weren’t any surprise announcements, fans got creator insight about upcoming books from Batman Eternal to Secret Origins. Here’s a few tidbits from the panel and its Q&A.
Marvel’s House of Ideas panel at C2E2 2015 was hosted by Ryan Penagos and features Nick Lowe, Joshua Hale Fialkov, and Mark Waid on stage, focusing heavily on Marvel’s digital endeavors with brief mentions of the 75th anniversary of Marvel Comics, the Marvel Gaming Universe, and a new documentary series called Tales to Astonish.
Joshua Hale Fialkov and Juan Bobilo will be bringing Amazing Spider-man: Who Am I? to the Marvel Infinite Comics lineup, but unlike titles like AvX and Wolverine, Who Am I? will be released in a batch on May 6 containing the first four chapters, with another batch of chapters to be released approximately a month later.
