[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.
San Diego is mostly know for its great weather and great tourist destination and of course for the event of the year San Diego Comic Con.
It’s that time of the year where WonderCon comes back to SoCal and after last years punishment of the Los Angeles Convention Center, the show is back to it’s original location at the Anaheim Convention Center.
On Saturday Dan Didio (Co-Publisher DC Comics) hosted the DC Comics Rebirth panel at Long Beach Comic Con. It was a nice small intimate panel with Scott Lobdell (Red Hood and the Outlaws), Brett Booth (Titans), Jimmy Palmiotti (Harley Quinn) and Jonboy Meyers (Teen Titans).
Losing Darwyn has been a very difficult thing for the comic book industry. His talent was immeasurable and his loss is great because there were so many stories that he still was going to tell but sadly we will never get to enjoy them.
While Disney and Lucasfilm decided no to have a Rogue One: A Star Wars Story panel this year they did however bring some of the costumes from the movie and have them on display in the Star Wars pavilion on the exhibiters floor.
