Comic Issues #211 – Open Season on DC

This week Anthony and Ashley are moving to an awesome new place, so Elizabeth takes a turn at hosting, with guest star Leland from Movie Issues! Join us as we pick Leland’s brain on all things DC, and he drops knowledge all over the place.

First we talk about Open Season on Comic-Con tickets and whether or not Nerd Mecca will move to Los Angeles. Then we discuss Aquaman’s new look (Leland’s not a fan, Elizabeth just thinks Jason Momoa is pretty.) Then we break down Joker’s “immortality,” Superman’s flaws, inconsistencies in Harley Quinn, and Wonder Woman having a beer in a bar.

[SDCC 2014] All Those Wonderful Toys

In addition to the cosplayers, celebrities, panels, trailers, and parties of San Diego Comic-Con, there’s one thing we can’t forget: all those wonderful toys. And books, stickers, clothes, trinkets, statues, figures, and every other cool geek item you can buy on the giant sales floor.

We’ve collected together a few photos of the collectibles we liked best, the stuff we’d want to decorate our own geek lairs.

[SDCC 2014] Marvel Panel – Avengers: Age of Ultron

The Marvel panel (specifically the Avengers: Age of Ultron portion) at San Diego Comic-Con was one of the most eagerly awaited, hard-to-get-into, and most talked about event of the convention. Thanks to photographer Hilary Papiro, we have dozens of photos of the panel, plus a video of the cast (Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Cobie Smulders, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Paul Bettany) as they took the stage to Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop ’till You Get Enough.”

We survived Comic-Con! We’re tired, we’re broke, and we’re getting over the Con Crud, but we’d do it all over in a heartbeat. (Or in one year from now, we oughta be recovered by then.)

Join Anthony, Elizabeth, and Sara from the Villainous Lair as we debrief on Comic-Con 2014, sharing our favorite Con moments, celebrity sightings, panels, and stories about how fun it is to sleep on the ground. (That last one may just be Sara.)

Comic Issues #180 – Gearing Up For SDCC Part 3

It’s finally here! San Diego Comic-Con 2014 is upon us, and Comic Issues will be there every day: roaming the sales floor, photographing cosplay, interviewing actors and artists and writers, and looking for that perfect print or figurine to buy for our own geek lairs.

Join Anthony, Elizabeth, and Leland from Movie-Issues in our third and final installment of Gearing Up For Comic-Con, as we ask the all important questions: did Han Solo’s busted ankle cost us a Star Wars panel; are we going to the Masquerade; which panels are we standing in line for; what’s up with Batgirl’s new costume; why is the internet talking about a ball pit; and can you or can you not kick people if they’re in your way? (No. You can’t. Leland, I’m talking to you. Behave.)
