With WonderCon coming to Los Angeles this weekend there is a lot to see and do at the show. There will be a ton of panels and surprisingly the Hollywood influence is pretty lean this year and seems to be a bigger focus on comics this time around.
Yesterday we learned of the passing of Herb Trimpe. While Trimpe was not the flashiest artist he was an artist that was always on time with his work with solid artwork on all of the books that he worked on and one of the nicest people whom you could have ever met.
One of the best panels of WonderCon was also one of the first. If you ever get a chance to go to a Sergio (Aragones) and Mark (Evanier) show at a convention, do yourself a favor and make time to go to this panel.
It’s the last week of summer and while television shows are reruns and summer blockbusters imploded all over the screens, there were lots of great comics that came out over the summer and the fall promises to continue it’s hot streak.
With SDCC last week the whole comic reviews when to hell and a hand basket so this week I will try to catch up with books for both last week and this week.
UPDATED: Criterion has posted a video of locations then and now. See below. One of the greatest comedies of all time has finally arrived it the special edition that it has so longingly deserved.
