Ladies and gentlemen, Boston Comic Con is almost here.
As usual Mike has a booth at the show, which can be found at A219-A222 on the show floor. Also, here’s a map of the show floor so everything I just said makes sense: Make sure to drop any large amounts of comics at Mike’s house so he can bring them to the show for you. He loves doing that very much and will thank you for the experience. What a guy!
So you probably haven’t heard, but DC’s been quietly releasing another sequel to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, lately. Funko’s even throwing DC a bone by contributing some new figurines to the Indie project.
Check ‘em out!
Friendly reminder that the 2016 edition of Boston Comic Con is just over two months away, Friday, August 12th through Sunday August 14th.
The list of artists jam-packed with top-tier talent. A small number of the names that jump out at me are:
Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Mark Waid, Brian Azzarello, Rafael Albuquerque, Amanda Conner, Marv Wolfman, Jae Lee & John Cassaday.
Time to plan ahead!
PS: William Shatner will also be there, for anyone interested in paying to talk to a man who definitely does not want to talk to you. Goose bumps!
If you answered “no” to any of those questions, you may leave. Now.
H’okay good, so FCDB is this Saturday and once again we’ll be celebrating with the fine folks at ye olde Greenfield Garden Cinemas. We’ll be viewing Marvel’s latest ‘splosion fest, “Captain America: Civil War.” Movie starts at 8:30am and for $7 you can witness a multi-million dollar display of sound/color, get some refreshments, as well as have the pleasure of our own Kyle McDonald sit in your lap!
Annnnnnnd following the movie we’ll be treated to a menagerie of illustrious guest creators:
If you’re like me, you’re loving Netflix’s Daredevil series. Season one was terrific, season two (thus far) is even better. A big reason for that is the inclusion of the Punisher in season two. He’s interesting on his own, as well as the anti-heroic peanut butter to Daredevil’s chocolate justice.
What took Netflix and Marvel so long to pull the trigger on this? More importantly, when are we going to get the first season?
Diamond recently sent a message to Mike to celebrate MCS’ five year anniversary with the distributor, and he wanted to thank everyone for their partnership and patronage that makes this whole big/little thing possible.
He also said that as thanks, the next time any one of us stops by to pick up a batch of comics, you may take one item of your choice from his house. And he means anything.
