Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of the first volume of Super! You won’t regret it. That is, unless you prefer comics where the creative team switches every three issues, and the current storyline is retconned before you even finish the issue. If that’s more to your liking, then pick up a copy of All New 52, instead. If you prefer comics that are fresh, hilarious and beautifully illustrated, then Super! is right up your alley, with the incredible creative team; Zack Dolan (writing, pencils), Everardo Orozco (colors), Laurie Foster (inks), and Justin Piatt (writing, letters), respectively.
November’s bringing us a couple new #1’s, a very… “mind-suggestive” story, while really crazy stuff happens with Batman and the Apokolips world, and certain avian creatures become more than meets the eye! If that’s not enough, a certain Marvel hero gets dangerously close to villain-y! How about them apples?!
As I continue to tinker around with this, trying to make it better for everyone, be excited for more expansion into other comic companies! Have a little fun with some magic in Cloaks and exploration of alternate realities with Multiversity! And while it’s time to head back to school with some creepiness factor added in, let us all also remember our fallen friend, who will likely be back in time for the Apocalypse movie (or not, depending on the so-called feud between Fox and Marvel), Wolverine….
So Friday night of the Connecticut ComiCONN had a crawl put together called “Black Rock Comic Crawl.” The night’s event was put together by Zombie Leader, and had a group of guys start out at Rogue Comics and go from one place to the next, all with the added bonus of actor Brian O’Halloran joining in on the fun. I got to meet Brian and take a photo with him, which was a huge highlight of the night for me.
Connecticut ComiCONN recently passed through the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, CT (during August 15th-17th) and here are photos I took during the event. If you’d like to attend future events, keep an eye out on their Facebook page and follow them on Twitter.
“Connecticut ComiCONN: A show for the fans, by the fans!” That’s the slogan for the Connecticut ComiCONN show, and let me tell you this: it’s 100% true. This isn’t a huge show in the sense of New York or San Diego Comic Con, which sets it apart. And that’s just fine because for a ‘smaller’ convention, it was still packed with everything fans could and would want. It absolutely had that feeling of “for the fans, by the fans.”
As some may know, I’m a moderator over at The Comic Board. A new member asked about where to start reading comics for Wolverine, to learn of the character and his history and whatever great stories there are. So I answered his query and gave him quite a list, but with explaining them as I went along. Just looking at the list may be seem daunting, but I assure you that it’s quite the opposite. What I have here is exactly what I posted and would recommend it to anyone interested in learning about the ol’ Cannucklehead or that wants to read great stories with him that they haven’t.
On July 26th, 2014, it was “Doctor Who Day”, celebrating the two new ongoing series from Titan Comics based on the 10th Doctor (played by David Tennant on the BBC series) and the 11th Doctor (played by Matt Smith). I stopped by my local comic shop, Rogue Comics, and took pictures of some customers as they ‘became’ the 10th or 11th Doctor, and even joined in myself. Wait, there’s more!
