Crossovers sell! When we get to see various characters interact with each other that we’re not used to seeing, that’s worth plunking down one’s hard-earned cash to read. Then, too, Batman’s been doing very well! I saw long lines at Mr. King’s booth at the recent Baltimore Comic Con as well as good numbers for the book in recent months. So why not bring various members of the Bat-family together for a special event?
It was only a couple of weekends ago that Batman Day was held for 2016. That seems to be turning into a successful yearly event at local comics shops! Coming at the end of October will be Halloween ComicFest, the fall’s version of Free Comic Book Day. It will be held on the last Saturday of the month, the 29th. There will be free comics and other treats galore at participating locations!
What is the biggest drawback to attending a summer’s worth of comic conventions? Not having time to read comics!
Wayne Hall attended the Baltimore Comic Con this past weekend, and shares his experiences at the convention.
Suppose you discovered that every time you died, you actually transported into another you in another, albeit somewhat similar, universe? What would that do to you? The answer begins to take shape in Alter-Life #1, which I had the pleasure of picking up at the recent Wizard World Chicago convention!
I’ve really been fuming lately over the stranglehold Diamond has over comics distribution in the United States. For instance, if you want to put a great superhero book out, if you’re not part of the “bigger” companies, they’ll flat-out reject your series, no matter how good it is. “Too many superhero books,” they say, as I’ve heard from several Indie comics creators. Well, maybe someone’s finally doing something about it!
