I don’t think there’s a person alive who would debate the fact that Sergio Aragonés is the world’s greatest living cartoonist. So many industry giants look up to this man for his cartooning talent. The fact that he’s going to celebrate his 60th year at MAD Magazine with us, I could not be more thrilled to have him. Everyone loves his work. He’s so highly entertaining and funny. It just floored me when he actually said yes to being the guest of honor, because at the heart of it I’m still a fanboy and I do not know anyone on this planet that is not a fan of his work. To be able to highlight Sergio’s career and all that he’s done is immense and I cannot stop being excited about it.
Since this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, there has been a big push in asking convention goers and fans of Comic-Con what the museum should feature, ranging from topics discussed to what “superhero-inspired drinks” should be served in the café. Keegan referred to this as “Fan Curation.”
You’d think the game’s director, Masahiro Sakurai, had already said everything there could have possibly been, but there were still some surprising reveals. And no, Waluigi did not get announced. Sorry.

HaiNaNu “Nooligan” Saulque is a visual artist who finds inspiration from fashion, cartoons, golden age comics, and comic strips. He is most recognized for taking pop-culture figures and exaggerating them in cartoonish fashion, always complete with a signature pair of sneakers. Earlier in the week, we posted a review of the DC Artist Alley figures […]
Unlike the first wave of the DC Artist Alley line which had the “cute and creepy” styling of artist Chris Uminga, the newest one has instilled Nooligan’s signature look, which takes heavily from cartoons, movies, golden age comics, and classic newspaper strips. The final product not only does justice to the iconic characters of Batman, The Joker, and Harley Quinn, but also showcases Nooligan’s unique interpretation.
Based on the current Rebirth designs of Jason Fabok and sculpted by Paul Harding, all four of these DC Essentials figures come highly detailed and with 21-points of articulation. As the DC website states, “DC Essentials is a line of 6.75 inch action figures based on DC characters with universal appeal, accessible to both long-time collectors and those just starting out.” For this month, DC Collectibles have given us Superman, Aquaman, Brainiac, and Black Manta.

Early in the morning of every first official day of San Diego Comic-Con, the Hasbro Toy Company delights the press with a promise of food and toys. This year, they delivered a veritable buffet of both; so much so that I didn’t know exactly where to start.
Even before the start of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con Preview Night, DC Collectibles released a startling amount of information regarding their upcoming statue and figure lines. So, when it came around to the next day’s DC Collectibles panel attended by moderator Paul Malmont, Art Director Travis Hastback, artist Joe Ledbetter, artist Chrissie Zullo, Executive Creative Director Jim Fletcher, Special Makeup Effects Artist Rick Baker, and sculptor Paul Harding, much of the information they discussed was more of a reiteration from the day prior.
