50 years ago, an artist named Wallace “Wally” Wood (or Woody to most people) changed Daredevil’s costume from his original yellow suit to the iconic red and black outfit he still wears to this day. (Even in the Daredevil Netflix show.) But Wally Wood did a lot more than redesign Daredevil and had a long career doing newspaper strips as well as horror and sci-fi books for EC Comics and humor for the immortal Mad. At East Coast Comicon, comic book artist and philanthropist J. David Spurlock, who co-founded the Wally Wood Scholarship Fund and co-wrote a biography of Wood, and veteran comics creators Larry Hama (G.I. Joe) and Bob Wiacek (Uncanny X-Men) swapped stories and chatted about Wood’s life, work, and legacy.

"Laugh-In" director George Schlatter based this 1976 farce on a failed stage play about two stereotypically Jewish parents and their frazzled reactions to the fact that their son has a boyfriend. For the film Schlatter cast Redd Foxx and Pearl Bailey as the parents, thereby ensuring a comedy even more rife with politically-incorrect possibilities. Look for Mad cartoonist Sergio Aragones in a small part. »

During Galavant‘s fifth episode, the group comes across a band of musically-inclined monks (they’ve taken a vow of singing, obviously) who welcome Gal, Isabella, and Sid into their church as a last stop on the way to saving Valencia from King Richard. “Can’t we just have a normal adventure,” asks Galavant as the monks introduce one another through rhymes, “Weird Al” Yankovic hilariously leading the pack. Given that we’re in the home stretch of the show’s first season, I’d say that’s a hard no, Gal. But where he suffers, we gain, as the show continues on the up-and-up, remaining hilarious, smart, and unexpectedly deep.
Tonight’s first episode shines more light on Madalena, who goes full Disney-villain mode as the night progresses, heightened collar and all. In the opening moments of “Completely Mad…Alena” she sings one of the best songs of the series yet, »

In recent years, comics conventions have become less about the comics creators, who crafted (and continue to craft) the characters beloved by pop culture and more about celebrity guests. Yes, it is fun to get a picture made with your favorite Star Trek captain or Doctor Who companion, but from my personal experience as well as that of con-goers and the crowded nature of big shows like San Diego and New York Comic Con, it seems like the comics have been pushed aside for “geek culture” celebrities. Some conventions might as well take out the “comic” in “comic con”. However, some shows continue to put comics and creators first, and one of them is East Coast Comicon.
East Coast Comicon began as Asbury Park Comic Con and was held in 2012 at a converted bowling alley/rock club in Asbury Park, NJ. It was founded by independent comics creator Cliff Galbraith »
