NYCC 2015 Friday Panels – Our Picks!...

Written by David Henehan. Welcome to Day 2 of NYCC. You made it through Thursday, the day of NYCC that is least packed, in terms of both attendance and what creators are there, but now it’s Friday! More people at the Javits Center! More panels! That said, there seem to be less MUST ATTEND panels than Thursday. BUT the good Friday panels are AWESOME Friday panels, which is going to make for some hard choices when it comes to time conflicts. DC Comics – The Dark Knight 30th Anniversary – 11:00-12:00 Main Stage 1-D Wow, talk about a star-studded panel. Jim Lee, Klaus Jansen, Andy Kubert, Brian Azzarello and surprise guests. Could the surprise guests possibly be Scott Snyder and Frank Miller?! What do you think? (Wristband required) Dark Horse: CLASSIFIED – 11:00-12:00 1A21 Dark Horse lost the Star Wars license at the end of 2014. What would have been a mortal blow to another company inspired this company to really go all out in producing new quality product. Dark Horse has long been a home of great independent work and licensed comics. With the loss of their biggest license, they doubled down on the creator owned titles, giving us such gems as Brian Wood’s Rebels. Wood will be at this panel, as will Matt Kindt, Mike Richardson and more. Come here to see what Dark Horse has planned for 2016. Dan Parent Drawing Workshop – 11:00-12:00 Family HQ 1C01 Here’s a fun one to bring the kids. Dan Parent of Archie Comics will be hosting a drawing workshop. Learn how to draw your Archie faves. YogaQuest: Narrated Yogic Adventures – 1:15-2:15 Family HQ 1C04 “A mix of yoga and fan-fiction storytelling.” Okay, you’ve piqued my interest. Hmm, maybe this is the day I’ll...

Star Wars Hits ComiXology Today!...

Marvel Comics did not waste any time making many of Dark Horse’s Star Wars comics available for purchase digitally on comiXology. Many Star Wars trades are available as of this morning. Of the trades available, I highly recommend Brian Wood’s Star Wars Vol. 1: In The Shadow of Yavin, The Star Wars (which presents Lucas’s original draft for Star Wars in comic book form), and Tag and Bink Were Here (a very funny take on the Star Wars universe). This is the first time Star Wars comics have appeared on comiXology, as Dark Horse has it own digital app separate from comiXology. I’m sure I’m not the only one surprised by this move, as I was under the impression that the new movie coming out in December and the new comic debuting from Marvel this month would negate many of these books from continuity. I’m especially surprised that Marvel released Brian Wood’s Star Wars series, as it seems very similar to the Star Wars comic Jason Aaron is writing for Marvel this month. Surprised, but happy. That Brian Wood comic is excellent. I highly recommend buying it. You can find all the Star Wars books released on comiXology today right...
