Why Do People Go to Comic-Con?
by Eric Garneau

Eric Garneau covered the San Diego Comic-Con for The MindHut. These are his personal reflections on going to the show for the first time. Early Thursday in the crowded Room 6DE, before comic writer Jimmy Palmiotti dove into a few of All-Star Western‘s upcoming plotlines for DC’s Dark/Edge panel, he had a few words for the  read more

Delayed Gratification and Genre Mixing in Scott Snyder’s Swamp Thing
by Eric Garneau

When Scott Snyder and Yanick Paquette’s Swamp Thing #7 saw release, it was met with generally spectacular reviews, at least in part because after six issues the book finally delivered on the promise in its title — it finally featured Swamp Thing. Not many mainstream comics would wait over half a year to introduce their  read more

Your 2012 Eisner Award Nominees (with Color Commentary!)
by Eric Garneau

I don’t know about you, but every time the Eisner Award nominations get announced, it reminds me just how few comics I read the previous year — at least important ones. I suppose it’s the same with any awards ceremony (though I was pretty up on this past year’s Grammys), but with comics, I always  read more

Arc in Review: Rick Remender’s Secret Avengers #21.1-25
by Eric Garneau

Marvel’s Secret Avengers has taken on its fourth regular writer in under two years, and it’s one that perhaps fans would not have instantly associated with the property. As of issue #21.1 Rick Remender (Fear Agent, Punisher) has taken the reigns of Marvel’s covert ops superhero team. Now, four months later (with issue #25), his  read more

Arc in Review: Princeless #1-4
by Eric Garneau

Last week we published our commentary on the 2012 Eisner Award nominations, and I lamented that every year it seems like I never read enough books to know most of what’s up to win. As it happens, the author of one of the nominated books (several noms, actually!) saw the article and e-mailed me asking  read more

Arc in Review: Action Comics #1-8
by Eric Garneau

After what some (well, me at least) might consider a rocky start, Grant Morrison and Rags Morales‘ Action Comics reached the end of its first arc with a pretty satisfying confrontation wherein Braniac forces Clark Kent to choose between his adopted home and his biological one. It was nature versus nurture for the fate of  read more

What I Read 4/4: Daredevil, Animal Man, iZombie and more…
by Eric Garneau

I can’t read every book every week, but I read the ones I think I’ll like and write about them here. Daredevil #10.1: Consider: there’s really no way around the fact that point-one issues are just an excuse for Marvel to sell an extra book a month. And given artist work output limitations, this issue has  read more
