I’m having a lot of fun reading all the news about ‘the’ Comic-Con. Although I’m not sure fun is the right word to be using. After all, I have no interest in DC Comics and that, right there, eliminates practically half of the news, and Marvel’s announcements have been, to say it kindly, underwhelming. I am however very interested in everything that’s coming from the rest of the publishers. There was a day in which I would have never ventured outside the big two’s ‘comfort zone’, but the creative decline in DC forced me to abandon the land of Superman and embrace Marvel more than ever before, at least for a few years. Right now the best titles are either creator owned or come from indy imprints (Mark Millar's Millarworld, Icon, Avatar, IDW, Dynamite, Top Shelf, Image, etc.). That is my opinion but, of course, I’m willing to concede that I could be wrong. What do you think?
San Diego Comic-Con stopped focusing exclusively on comic books some time ago, and now it’s more of a pop culture event, with Hollywood movies, online gaming and many other related products. Still, Eidolon Fine Arts will be presenting Michael Zulli’s most personal graphic novel to date: The Fracture of the Universal Boy, a book made possible by a successful Kickstarter campaign. Hundreds of people made generous donations, including myself.
