Here’s a round-up of more IDW announcements during ECCC, most of them part of a “Five Featured Firsts” program which will see a new book every week in July, more on Kevin Eastman and Godzilla going to Hell!
The Valentines State’s first comic con of the year wrapped up over the romantic weekend. Jimmy Jay, Amazing Arizona Comic Con organizer, didn’t let a hallmark holiday get in the way of putting on his three-day annual comic book convention on Friday, Feb. 13 through Sunday, Feb. 15. The event kicked off with an intimate panel with Spawn Creator Todd McFarlane and the New York Times best selling Batman artist, Greg Capullo. They signed someone’s baby.
BTW one of the highlights of this year’s Free Comic Book Day has to be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird making their first public appearance together in 20 years! They signed at Jetpack Comics in New Hampshire, and I’m sure it was quite an event. TMNT celebrates their 30th anniversary this year and the new movie is coming out August 12th, whiel IDW is publishing the comic, with a 30th Anniversary Special coming out this month.
