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 people assembled before him at the San-Diego Comic Con. “I’m so glad you’re here,” he said “because you are the real comic fans.” — more

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

on April 08, 2012

No Comments

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 main character to audiences; a decade ago it was a noteworthy when Brian Michael Bendis waited just a couple months to do so in Ultimate Spider-Man.

Your 2012 Eisner Award Nominees (with Color Commentary!)

No Comments

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 feel like I should know more of the primo stuff than I do. But hey, at least part of the reason these awards exist is to bring new attention to works that deserve it, after all. — more

You probably know Rebel Rikki as the fantastic(?)/long-winded(!) reviewer who tackles comics, music, movies and more on a regular basis at this site. But did you know he also spends a lot of time hanging out with people in the Chicago comedy scene? Like, a lot. And it’s some of those friends of his in the Nerdologues troupe that made this video, expertly titled “Girl in a Comic Book Shop.” — more
