[Comic Con 2011] Comic Issues: Day 2

What an amazing day it was today!  My body is already showing signs of fatigue, but that has yet to stop me from enjoying every minute of the convention.  There are good vibes in the air at the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) and everyone is getting them.  Everyone I’ve encountered, from professionals to exhibitors to fans, have helped make this perhaps my best Comic-Con ever.

On our way home, Darran and I chatted a bit over what we’ve enjoyed the most about the 2nd day of Comic-Con (though it’s his first and my second and a half).  One thing that we both liked was the creativity in this years cosplayers, mixing genres and coming up with new costumes that we haven’t seen before.  Darran enjoyed the three panels he attended, all dedicated to improving his craft as an artist.

Go ahead and listen to us go on in the short audio clip below, if you want to hear what we thought.

[Comic Con 2011] Comic Issues: Day 1

The first official full day of the San Diego Comic-Con is now over, and though Wednesday was preview night, Thursday is when everything really kicks off.  For me today was about panels, Arkham City, and Darksiders 2, but I got so much more than that.  This Comic-Con marks a return after a five-year absence due to travel and the rising cost and availability of the convention itself.  It was a sort of homecoming for me as this is the convention for my home town of San Diego.  SDCC was my first convention and, though some things have changed, much has happily stayed the same.

Recapping the day, I recorded myself going over vaguely the highlights of the 1st day of the convention.  Though heartfelt and impromptu, for a more in-depth telling of my day, read on below.

Comic Issues #22 – Potter Impac-tid-us

This week on the Comic Issues Podcast, our heroes make their way to Platform 9 3/4 as they board the train to Hogwarts. They take on all the dark wizards as they discuss the impact of the Harry Potter franchise on today’s culture. Afterwards they put on the Sorting Hat to get sorted into their own houses. Finally the final showdown begins as they have a verbal wizard’s duel for best character, book, and movie.

This week, the Laird of Lore makes his way back to the podcast with some amazing trivia. If that wasn’t enough fun, we are also joined by special guest Kristal Plein.

However, this is just a mere piece to our full coverage on this Harry Potter week. A very special review of the latest movie will debut later this week!

DC adds Bat-Books and GL to Rebooted Titles

Since DC’s huge announcement of the rebooting of 52 of its books, eleven books have been released.  However, as we all know, the hunger of comic readers around the world cannot be satisfied with such a small offering!  As of June 6, DC has announced fifteen additional titles that will be released in the month of September along with all the others.  Among these new titles are the much discussed Bat-books and, although it seems that not everyone’s represented as of yet, the talent is looking pretty spectacular.

The Dark Knight Rises: Bane

Holy ‘roid rage, Batman! The first picture of Tom Hardy as Bane in the new Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises” has been released virally today and it looks awesome!

With the casting of Tom Hardy as Bane, it was believed that it would be unlikely that we would have a true to the comic kind of Bane, but in Nolan we trust.  Despite a British actor scoring the role of the Latin muscle man, Hardy’s talent speaks for itself.
