What does it take for some of the biggest heroes in all of comics to come together? Apparently, it takes a Justice League panel.
Has it really been ten years since we were first introduced to Snow White, Bigby Wolf, Rose Red and all the residents of Fabletown? It has indeed, and what a journey it's been. Through more than 120 issues, numerous graphic novels, multiple Eisner Awards and a highly-acclaimed spin-off or two, the cast of Bill Willingham's beloved fantasy series have come to feel like good friends. Fortunately, while the years have brought changes to Fables, the one thing this comic book series hasn't done is slowed down.
Powerful, smart and compelling, the seven miniseries that have comprised Before Watchmen have inspired praise, outrage, acclaim and all manner of conversation, and they're not over yet. Join us for an eye-opening discussion with a few of the men and women behind this powerhouse publishing event, and learn what's on the horizon, including the recently announced Before Watchmen: Moloch. You never know what to expect at a Before Watchmen panel, and if this one's anything like our previous panels, it'll likely have everyone talking afterwards. Just like Before Watchmen itself.
Bold. Imaginative. Unique. Sophisticated. Cutting Edge.
There are many words that can be used to describe Vertigo, the award-winning publisher of Fables, American Vampire, 100 Bullets and The Sandman. Soon to enter its 20th year of publishing, Vertigo remains as lively and unpredictable as it was at its inception. Whether you've been reading since the early days of Swamp Thing and Hellblazer, or have become a fan more recently through comics and graphic novels like Get Jiro! and Fairest, there's much to look forward to for Vertigo readers.
For those who live in or near the Big Apple, or just find the energy of Manhattan to be more to their tastes than the heat and haze of San Diego, New York Comic-Con is the most exciting convention of the year. It's certainly promising to be one of the big ones if you're a DC fan. If you're spending your weekend at the Javitz Center, be sure to stop by our booth (#1238) for great giveaways, demonstrations and talent signings. We'll be making announcements, answering questions from fans and revealing some great DC Collectibles.
There is a lot of really, really cool swag at conventions. From toys to statues to comic books and graphic novels to replica weapons like the Sword of Omens (we have seen this and it is awesome!). Shopping at conventions can be a lot of fun, but what's not as fun is only having a credit card handy, running out of cash, or waiting in lines at the ATM.
By "careful cosplaying" we don't mean watching out for other cosplayers dressed as your archenemy that you'll then have to do battle with (although totally be aware of that—you will have to fight your archenemy). What we mean is that while razzling and dazzling the crowd at the con with your kickass costume, keep note of these few things:
Sometimes it's a lot of fun to fly by the seat of your pants. We certainly understand the temptation of wanting to jump into the deep end of New York Comic Con and go with the flow. But trust us, when it comes to NYCC, it's important to know exactly how deep that end can get.
Everyone from Solomon Grundy to DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Dan DiDio was at New York Comic Con this past weekend. In case you’ve been unplugged from the Internet all day, there are ton of recaps from the convention.
