Martha Thomases: Getting Your Nerd On?

14 July 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

The San Diego Comic-Con is next week, and I’m going through my annual trajectory of feelings.

On the one hand, I like comics. I like a lot of the people who work in comics. Twenty years ago, I had a great time when I went because San Diego is a lovely city and it’s pleasant to walk out of the convention center and see palm trees.

On the other hand, I don’t like huge crowds, and Sdcc has only attracted more of them. I don’t mean to begrudge anyone their good time, but I don’t necessarily want to be jammed in the middle of it. Especially when their good time is more and more about pop culture in general, and less about comics specifically.

Yes, you can still go and wallow in the sweet, sweet mud of comics love. My experience, the last time I tried, »

Ed Catto: It Creeps! It Crawls! Beware the Comic-Con!

10 July 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

It’s indestructible! It’s indescribable! Nothing can stop it!

Every one of you watching this screen should look out! Because soon, very soon, the most horrifying monster menace ever conceived…

No, this isn’t advertising copy for a comic convention coming to your town. These lines are from the trailer for that old monster movie, The Blob. But it could be used to describe any upcoming comic con.

Comic conventions are not only thriving but, like the Blob, they are now oozing out from the walls of their convention centers and invading local towns. Geek culture cannot be held within its original confines.

Who would have ever thought, way back when Geek Culture was nestled in little comic shops in the scorned section of town, that we’d get to this point? Unlike the foreboding tone of that Blob movie trailer, this expanding, oozing primordial mass inspires a sense of awe and wonderment. »

Green Arrow Writer Talks Team-Ups With Justice League In New Video

4 July 2017 11:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After writer Benjamin Percy did a fine job of capping Green Arrow‘s first year in the Rebirth era with issue #25, which also served as a great jumping on point, it seems like he’s more than ready to plunge into the next major story arc.

Not long ago, we were granted our first look inside the opening chapters of “Hard Traveling Hero,” which is set to take the Emerald Archer beyond the borders of Star City (formerly Seattle). So, if that title rings a bell, it should, because it’s paying homage to Denny O’Neil and Neal Adams’ legendary run on Green Lantern/Green Arrow, something Percy didn’t shy away from admitting right off the bat in a recent interview conducted by DC All Access’ Whitney Moore.

Ed Catto’s Convention Treasures!

3 July 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

I’m still reeling – in a good way – from Syracuse’s Salt City Comic-Con. It was a fantastic comic convention where I had way too much fun. And I’ve got some observations to share with you about it, but they’ll have to wait until next week.

This week I like to share some of the treasures I found at the show.

Let’s start with the “full disclosure” routine. I’m at the point where my comic collection is way too large, and I’ve been taking the steps to prune it back over the last few years. I’ve found this process difficult to adjust to, but my wife and I are in that downsizing mode. Surprisingly, I’m finding that maybe I am not that much of a hoarder after all. I actually feel better when I get rid of stuff.

But… I can’t help »

Mike Gold: What? A Long Strange Trip?

28 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

I believe the first comics convention I attended was in 1967. That means I’ve been chasing these puppies for 50 years. Indeed, it often feels my entire life has been one long, never-ending comicon. Talk about getting a life – or, at least, another act.

I continue to do ‘em because I enjoy seeing my friends a hell of a lot more than I enjoy eating vulcanized chicken fingers. Better still, I enjoy meeting the fans, talking about what they like and don’t like (this is not a good time to defend the event comic), discovering new trends and talent, and blathering on and on at panels. For the past, oh, maybe two dozen years that means I’ve vastly preferred the smaller comicons; it’s hard to have meaningful conversations at the overcrowded, underoxygenated megashows such as San Diego and New York. To tell you the truth, I avoid those »

Heroes Con Celebrated Its 35th Anniversary Bigger And Better!

21 June 2017 7:35 AM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

This past weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina was one of the oldest comic book conventions in the South.  Heroes Con was founded in 1982, by Shelton Drum, who is the owner of the Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find.  Over the years this convention has built a reputation of being one of the few big conventions left that have a comic-first attitude.  Over the past 15 years most conventions have shifted their primary focus from comic books to celebrity autographs and more adult themes.  At Heroes Con fans can interact with their favorite professional and amateur artist. Babs Tarr, Neal Adams, Justin Latour, and Steve Seranko are just a few of the artist that were at the convention this past weekend that you could’ve talked to.  Heroes Con has become a Must attend for all comic book fans especially those located in the South.  

From the first Heroes Con to this past weekends 35th anniversary the primary focus every year has been comic books, family safe atmosphere, and great artwork.  


Heroes Con offered more from a collectors standpoint than most other conventions in the United States. There was over one hundred different varying from high end classic comics to cheap fidget spinners. As a comic collector, there is a very small chance you may not find a certain issue, or grade. If you are willing to spend the time going to all the vendors and asking you will more than likely find whatever book you may be looking for.  On top of millions of comic books there is also a plethora of different collectible from bust, statues, clothing, collectible figures, saberes, accessories, jewelry, and the new fad of fidget spinners. There is literally something for everyone who attended Heroes Con, the problem becomes for most attendees is making the decision of what to leave behind. For the dedicated collectors that plan on attending next year is to make sure to have a priority list of what you want, and need.  


The amount of comic artists who come to Heroes Con is unlike anything you will ever see. With over two hundred artist in attendance every fan in attendance could find some piece of art they could appreciate.  Every artist in attendance was appreciative of the fans that came for autographs or commissions.  From artist like heavy weights Neal Adams and Steve Seranko to the newly popular Babs Tarr and Jason Latour, the amount of artwork at this convention is unbelievable.  If you are able to make it to the convention on Friday you should be able to get one of a kind commissions from your favorite artist. If your budget can’t afford original artwork then you can pick up prints made available from the artist to be autograph. Most comic book artist will sign comic books they were attached too for free.  

Heroes Con differentiates itself again from the panels it host over the weekend focused mainly focused on the comic book industry. With panels going on nonstop from Friday early afternoon to Sunday late afternoon the topics ranged from independent artist trying to get into the business to how to self-publish your own comic book. These panels are great for young artist who want to get into the business with plenty of insightful information, or kids with dreams of becoming an artist.  

2017 Heroes Con Gallery


Over the past ten years the Cosplay scene has grown at Heroes Con where they now have multiple group photos taken on Saturday, and in its 5th year a Cosplay contest on Sunday that had four different categories with plenty of contestants.  The difference in Cosplay at this convention to some of the more popular Cosplay Conventions is the focus on family atmosphere.  There are a few rules while attending Heroes Con mainly for the vendors, but while talking to a lot of the Cosplayers I found out some of the unwritten rules.  Although Cosplayers can attend as any character they would like, it is encouraged for both men and women that their outfits be appropriate enough for young kids to see.  Having these unwritten rules in place has seen a growth in Cosplayers attend especially in the younger audience.


Heroes Con has grown over the past 35 years to become one of the great Comic Conventions around.  While other convention may have changed to please their audience Heroes has stayed true to its core audience. With a priority on comic books and artwork it has found and grown an audience that is loyal to this convention. Most people you talk to at this convention will tell you that they have been coming for years, or that it is a family tradition to come to this convention. For collectors, fans of comic book art, and for families on a budget that want to enjoy a great atmosphere, this convention is a must.  Heroes Con may not have all the glitz and glamour as some of the other conventions, but because of its foundation it ranks in the top ten comic book conventions to attend in the U.S.

Since 2012, attending Motor City Comic Con has become a springtime tradition of mine and, in that time, I’ve seen the show grow from a moderately sized convention to a pop culture juggernaut that has become the largest of its kind in the state of Michigan. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if they surpassed the 60,000 mark when it came to attendance this year. If so, that’d make it one of the biggest shows in North America. [Note: Since publishing this article, they’ve been confirmed to have exceeded 55,000, which is still very impressive.]

And who could blame anyone for showing up, be they diehard geek, casual moviegoer or just plain curious? Boasting a handful of cast members from The Walking Dead, Hellboy himself in Ron Perlman, as well as DC TV stars such as Robin Lord Taylor (Gotham) and John Barrowman (Arrow), to name but a few, »

When we think of some of the most definitive artists to lend their pencils to Batman over the past 78 years, such greats as Bob Kane, Dick Sprang, Neal Adams, Frank Miller, Bruce Timm and Jim Lee immediately come to mind. But, in recent years, the torch has been passed to incredible talents such as Tony S. Daniel, Greg Capullo and the subject of today’s interview, Jason Fabok.

Having arrived on the scene several years ago with a gig on Superman/Batman, it wasn’t long before Fabok filled in for David Finch on a couple issues of Batman: The Dark Knight before it was relaunched for the New 52. And before anyone knew what hit them, he was drawing what I believe to be the most badass rendition of Batman of this decade in Detective Comics, Batman Eternal, »

Dark Knight III: The Master Race Covers Will Get Their Own Hardcover Collection

25 May 2017 11:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This week, we brought word that Dark Knight III: The Master Race would be undergoing a slight name change upon its release as a collected edition, effectively being rechristened as Batman: The Dark Knight: The Master Race. Well, it appears that trend will continue with a companion book set to arrive this September.

If you’ve been keeping up with the threequel to Frank Miller’s immortal classic The Dark Knight Returns – or at least news pertaining to it – you’re likely aware that this limited series has seen an obscene amount of variant covers, particularly for the first couple issues. Normally, stuff like this appears as supplemental material in the back of its relevant trade, but if that were the case with this story, the book would’ve been as thick as the Yellow Pages.

Knowing that, DC has opted to release a 176-page tome (I told you »

Ed Catto: Neal Adams’ Mighty Team-Ups!

8 May 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

Geek Culture, unlike other passion businesses like sports or music, affords fans the opportunity to collaborate with fellow fans and rub elbows with professionals. I’d argue that it’s unique to this industry.

For example, music fans would find it difficult to imagine playing with Mick Jagger or Sir Paul McCartney. Oh, you might see them in concert, but to really spend time with them probably isn’t going to happen.

Likewise, even if I was a big football fan, I couldn’t realistically plan a way to spend quality time with an NFL Superstar. I did briefly meet football legends Larry Czonka and Rocky Bleier back in the 70s, but hey, that was the 70s.

But Geek Culture is different. There are so many opportunities for fans to meet their favorite creators. Like super hero movies, comic conventions are sprouting up just about everywhere.

Ed Catto: Watching the Detectives

1 May 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

Detective Comics is the longest running American comic book series. It was so important to the publisher, an outfit called National Periodical Publications, that one day they officially changed their name to reflect comic’s initials. They became DC Comics. Oh, sure, Detective Comics Comics doesn’t make sense, but let’s not split hairs and just chalk it all up to simpler times.

I’ve been reading Detective Comics for as long as I’ve been reading. Batman was the lead character since #27, 1939, and in the early days I admit I’d often choose the latest issue of Batman – with that big Batman logo – instead of the latest Detective Comics.

But then, right about the time that I was actively buying and reading comics on my own with minimal parental supervision, Detective Comics shifted direction. Batman’s superhero adventures morphed into detective and mystery stories. Many stories embraced a whodunit feel. »

All-Star Batman Vol. 1: My Own Worst Enemy Review

25 April 2017 6:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review is based off a volume that collects All-Star Batman #1-5.

Unless you’re a casual reader scoping out this review, odds are that you’re at least somewhat aware of the many contributions Scott Snyder has made to the Batman mythos during this decade. To say that he and Greg Capullo have made their mark is an understatement. Whether it be creating the Court of Owls, redefining the Joker or even putting Jim Gordon under the cowl, that dynamic duo may very well one day find themselves mentioned in the same breath as legendary creative teams such as Denny O’Neil and Neal Adams.

But after wrapping a definitive 51-issue run, where does one go from there? For Snyder, at least, the solution for All-Star Batman was simple: Beyond the borders of Gotham City. I must admit that taking the Dark Knight out of his comfort zone opens up some interesting possibilities, »

Watch Now: Comic Trips 7×06 – Neal Before Greatness

18 April 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

They’ve been referred to as “American Pickers for 80′s babies”, and “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives for nerds”.

They drive. They hunt. They interact. A never-ending search for all things nostalgia related, from comic books to toys, movie memorabilia to long-forgotten pieces of pop culture history. Visiting comic book & toy stores, pop culture events, comic cons, flea markets, antique malls, personal collections, and anywhere they think they can (and do) find cool stuff.

They are Comic Trips… The best YouTube channel you’ve never heard of! However we aim to change all that – which is why we’re bringing the show into the Nerdly fold and sponsoring the latest season. If you haven’t caught seasons 1-6 yet, check those out here and the latest episode, “Neal Before Greatness”, is below:

Sure, the market may be flooded with books from the superhero’s point of view and, while those are certainly great, it’s nice to switch it up every now and then by examining things from the villain’s perspective. As luck would have it, we’ll be able to see what life is like on the other side of the luchador mask when Bane: Conquest officially kicks off in a few short weeks.

While many are relishing the opportunity to take in something focusing primarily on someone who’s arguably Batman’s most dangerous foe, this twelve-issue limited series is made doubly special by the fact that Bane’s original creators – writer Chuck Dixon and artist Graham Nolan – are making their return in order to give us the most definitive tale possible.

In the past few years, DC Comics have partnered with General Mills to offer exclusive comics packaged inside some of the most popular cereal boxes on the market. Well, the time has once again come for us to hunt down more books featuring the Justice League at our local grocer.

Before we get to the limited edition comics themselves, let’s discuss what separates this year’s offerings from those previous: The fact that known creators are putting heroic spins on cereal mascots. Don’t expect drastic overhauls as people still need to recognize the fictitious spokesmen, but I’d still say they’re certainly memorable.

Here’s what you can expect to find greeting you as you stroll down the breakfast aisle: Honey Nut Cheerios’ BuzzBee as Batman, drawn by Dave Johnson; Multi Grain Cheerios featuring Wonder Woman, »

First Look: Royals #1

A myth from the future. A quest to the farthest stars. A legend written across galaxies. This April, the Inhuman royal family departs on an odyssey to save their race in Royals #1 – the brand-new series from fan-favorite writer Al Ewing (The Ultimates, U.S.Avengers) and red-hot artist Jonboy Meyers (Teen Titans, Spawn).

Abdicating the throne in the wake of Inhumans vs. X-Men, Marvel’s newest space epic will take the Inhumans to the far reaches of space and beyond! The knowledge they seek about their true origins could change the course of Inhuman destiny, or damn it for all time. They must uncover who they are, if they are to truly unlock who they might be. Now, Black Bolt, Medusa, Crystal, Gorgon, Flint and Swain – along with Marvel Boy as their guide – will blast off on a mission that could mean salvation for their people.

Ed Catto: Don’t Listen?

6 March 2017 5:00 AM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

We live in a time when each day we are both blessed and cursed by instant feedback and judgment on everything we do. We’re hammered by harsh evaluations of our work and even our future-plans. Professional sports are dissected during postgame broadcasts and call-in shows. Feedback based on casting details or plot rumors now begins long before any creative project is released. In the comic industry, fans render judgments based on teased details long before anyone reads a single page.

Businesses are encouraged to hear and respond to every complaint and critique from customers. Hey, even I have led a seminar at ComicsPRO where the central theme was that retailers should “Grow Big Ears.”

But there are times when you have to ignore the voices. Sometimes you just know what has to be done and have to do it.

Not long ago, DC dropped a veritable bombshell when it revealed that one of Batman’s deadliest foes will soon headline a 12-issue maxiseries of his own in the form of Bane: Conquest. Intending on giving the hulking brute “new cities to conquer and new enemies to crush,” this project is made doubly exciting due to the fact that the villain’s co-creators – Chuck Dixon and Graham Nolan – happen to be at the helm. In other words, the book is in good hands.

Currently, Batman is in the midst of what may very well prove to be a game changing story arc in “I am Bane,” so the placement of this title is rather convenient. Actually, it seems like the creative team had been kicking the Conquest idea around for a short while and it »

Detective Comics #950 Review

8 February 2017 7:43 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review contains minor spoilers.

The special 48-page Detective Comics #950 is finally here. In all fairness, #950 technically arrived ages ago, but since we’re ignoring New 52, let’s get out the confetti. In this extra-sized edition of the legendary series, James Tynion IV pens three Baterrific tales: the “League of Shadows” prologue, “Higher Powers,” and “The Big Picture.”

The main attraction here is undoubtedly the prologue that follows Cassandra Cain’s harrowing story. She’s a lethal assassin and warrior, but also a lost child who’s desperately trying to fit in the civilized world. However much she craves a normal life, she struggles to find it due to the scars of her past. Tynion delves deep into this, exploring these inner conflicts that torment her. Particularly effective is his extended metaphor of dance and fighting throughout the story. Cassandra struggles with words, but she’s an expert of her first language: body language. »
