NYCC 2013: Thursday Panel & Screening HIghlights...

Unless you have an Exhibitor or Pro Pass, New York Comic Con opens for you at 3 PM on Thursday, October 10. Thursday will be the least crowded day of the con, since it’s open only to people with 4-Day Passes and people who specifically bought Thursday passes. Because of this, Thursday is a great day to nab the hotter con exclusives or meet your favorite creator. Just be sure to check the NYCC website to make sure that creator is there that day. The Panel and Screenings schedule is pretty light on Thursday, but there are definitely some that are worth checking out. 3:15 – 4:15 – Comixology Submit: The Future of Self Publishing – 1A08 3:15 – 4:15 – Protect It and Publish It: Creating and Protecting Your Comic Book Property – 1A03 If you’re interested in creating your own comics, Thursday has some panels aimed right at you. Unfortunately, these two conflict directly with each other. Fortunately, they’re close enough to each other that you could pop into one at the start and move to the other later. Comixology is the giant in the room when it comes to digital distribution, but if your concerns are more legal in nature, you may want to hit up the Protect It and Publish It panel. 3:15 – 4:15 – Women in Comics – 1A15 This looks like it will be an interesting discussion regarding female protagonists in comics. Plus, Becky Cloonan will be there. 3:45 – 4:45 – DC Comics 101: Essentials – 1A06 Or…”We’re not just the New 52! Promise!” Going by the description of this panel, it looks like it’s DC pitching you its back list. 3:45 – 4:45 – 60 Years of Bazooka Joe – 1A01 Anyone else think the...

Who Is The Outsider?

Since his first appearance leading The Secret Society of Super-Villains, fans have guessed at the identity of The Outsider. I have my own theory about The Outsider’s true identity, which I will reveal now. I believe that The Outsider is the Alfred Pennyworth from The Crime Syndicate of America’s Earth-3. Here are my reasons for believing this is so. The original Silver Age Outsider was Alfred Pennyworth.   The character The Outsider goes back to the 1960s. In 1964’s Detective Comics #328, Batman’s butler Alfred is killed when a boulder crushes him. Shortly thereafter, a mysterious criminal mastermind named The Outsider begins working in Gotham. In Detective Comics #356, it is revealed that a mad scientist brought Alfred back to life using a machine that also made Alfred evil and gave me the worst case of eczema ever. Side effects of regeneration machine include skin irritation and insanity. At the end of the issue, Batman punches The Outsider onto the machine, activating it. This restores Alfred back to his usual happy, not-dead, not-evil self. The New 52 Outsider looks like Alfred Pennyworth.   More than any other DC character, The Outsider looks like Alfred Pennyworth. Remove the color from the panel below and you’d be hard pressed to say if this was Alfred or The Outsider. The Outsider knows where Batman lives.   Justice League of America #5 gives us many clues to the Outsider’s identity, as you’ll see in the panels below. After The Outsider kills Catwoman, he announces he’s going to drop her body at Batman’s doorstep. Signalman asks, “You have Batman’s home address?” The Outsider responds, “Yes. Ha. I do.”     The Outsider knows The Joker.   “If The Joker could see me now.” It almost sounds like a throwaway...
