[Editors Note: I have included some photos from the weekend judging but in the group photos, some of the book that are being held were not actual nominees but some of the submitted books were used by accident] With San Diego Comic Con International this week I wanted to tell the story of what it’s like to be an judge for the Eisner Awards.
So finally after many stops and starts the new and improved (hopefully) Pop Culture Maven website is up and running and should be a lot smoother experience for both you the readers and me and the staff.
With this years San Diego Comic Fest just a few days aways and I had the pleasure of talking to Matt Dunford the Chairman of SDCF to find out what the show is all about.
Amethyst #1 DC/Wonder Comics Writer and Artist Amy Reeder, Letterer Gabriela Downie I was a big fan of the original Amethyst series back in the 1980’s and have been intrigued with her appearing in the Young Justice but there are so many characters in that comic it was hard for her to stand out.
Wonder Woman: Dead Earth #2 DC Black Label Writer and Artist Daniel Warren Johnson, Colorist Mike Spicer, Letterer Rus Wooton After a stunning first issue it was going to be hard for Johnson to top it and yet he does here but not in the usual way.
A surprisingly big week for Marvel Comics that had some surprises too. Few number ones so I was able to get to some of the continuing books that seems to be harder to do now.
Iron Man 2020 #1 Marvel Comics Writers Dan Scott and Christos Gage, Artist Pete Woods, Letterer Joe Caramagna Apparently Tony Stark is dead in the comics too now and its a good thing because he would have been board too reading this first issue of the new Iron Man comic as I was.
