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.

SHIELD #2 – Review...

After reading SHIELD #1, I was very excited for more from Mark Waid and Carlos Pacheco, especially from Pacheco, who was one of my favorite comic book artists in the late 1990s, but seems to have disappeared over the past decade. Sadly, Carlos Pacheco does not join Waid on SHIELD #2. Humberto Ramos steps in on art, and a more perfect artist could have not have been picked for this issue. Issue #2 of SHIELD sees Simmons go undercover as a high school substitute teacher in Jersey City, NJ. What superhero highschooler happens to live in Jersey City? That’s right, Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel. After reading this issue, Ramos is now my second favorite artist of Kamala, behind only Kamala Khan co-creator Adrian Alphona. Ramos’s style of exaggerated hands and feet is perfect for a shape-changing, often-stretchy character like Ms. Marvel. Waid delivers another great script. He introduces us to Simmons’s father, who does not know his daughter is a secret agent for SHIELD. Waid uses Jemma’s need to lie to her parents about what she does for a living as a bonding moment between Simmons and Ms. Marvel. Kamala doesn’t like lying to her parents about her superheroing as much as Jemma doesn’t like lying to her parents about her secret agenting. I would love to see Kamala and Jemma meet again, as I can see Jemma being a great mentor for Kamala. The plot centers around Simmons and Coulson trying to find a black marketer of stolen supervillain tech operating out of the Kamala’s school. The tech that shows up leads to Coulson and Ms. Marvel having an obscure villain trivia-off, noting the variations in the tech that villains used over the years. They both get the chance to one up...

SHIELD #1 – Review...

When I saw that Agents of SHIELD wasn’t returning to my TV until March, saying I was disappointed would have been an understatement. This season, Agents of SHIELD has been so good that I didn’t want to have to wait that long for the next new episode. Thankfully, Marvel has brought Team Coulson into the Marvel Universe in their new comic SHIELD. With the success of the Agents of SHIELD TV show, it shouldn’t be surprising that Marvel brought Coulson and his team to the main Maravel comic book universe, aka Marvel-616. The new comic launched on New Year’s Day. Marvel enlisted a very high quality creative team, signing on Mark Waid as the writer and Carlos Pacheco on art. The comic focuses on the core of Coulson’s team from the Agents of SHIELD TV show: Phil Coulson, Melinda May, Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons. There’s no sign of Grant Ward, which makes sense considering his status with the team since the end of season one. Also, none of the new team members from this season are here. I did think Mockingbird was the mystery lady on the plane, but that turned out to be a far more powerful character. I won’t spoil the reveal here, except to say it’s definitely not Mockingbird. The walls between the nine realms (aka Asgard, Hel, etc – think Thor stuff) is fading, and gods and monsters are appearing all over the world. While the world’s major superheroes deal with the big bads, Coulson’s team is sent to the Middle East to find the cause of the problem. Once the cause of the problem is revealed, the identities of the new, mysterious field agents for this mission also are, and their being there goes to show what a...
