Another San Diego Comic-Con has come and gone, and there’s been a TON of news!

Ready for two informative interviews about new comics? First up is a chat with Bohdan Neswiacheny and Rob Torres about their new book Souls Eternal #1 from Hashtag Comics. They discuss how their love of anime has influenced this great new series, as well as delving into the characters and what else they’re working on currently! To get this debut book, you can go to this link. Both Bohdan and Rob give information on how to follow their projects during this interview!
When I was a kid, I bought a reel-to-reel tape recorder for the express purpose of recording music from the cartoons I watched on the TV. I played those recordings again and again, until the tape wore out. I’ve missed that music!
All right, everybody sing along: Here comes Comic-Con! Here comes Comic-Con, right down Comic-Con Lane! I can even hear Elvis singing it! I often think of San Diego Comic-Con International (SDCC) as an early Christmas (if you celebrate that holiday) for fans of comics, TV, movies, gaming and anything even remotely related. This year, it will be held from Thursday, July 21, through Sunday, July 24, with a Preview Night starting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20. Once again, here at MajorSpoilers.com, coverage of the event is already underway. To check out news from SDCC, just click on the
It’s another episode that provides two great interviews with creators of a variety of projects you can support!
Over the last several years, I’ve been fortunate in that I’ve met many Indie comics creators who have been expanding the boundaries of comics storytelling. Superheroes have long been the dominant type of comic in the industry, so it’s no surprise folks are pushing the boundaries in that genre. I’ve been happy to buy these products at conventions, through Kickstarter projects and Comixology.com, among other ways. Well, two of the folks I’ve previously interviewed I’ve stayed in touch with, and both submitted their superhero books for insertion into the Diamond Previews catalog. They both recently told me they received rejection
Episode #237 features my fun interview with comics creator Dan Dougherty, the maker of such great books as Touching Evil, Volume One: The Curse Escapes, Bob Howard: Plumber of the Unknown, and a series of funny and touching comics strips called Beardo (so named because Dan himself sports a beard, something I can relate to). First, we discuss his excellent horror story, which focuses on a female attorney and single mother who inherits a curse that will change her life forever. We discuss how Dan conceived of this story, how human the various characters are, and how he has deftly weaved
It’s tough on fans attending a convention when things move around from year to year. Add to that construction going on at the location and a new weekend, including a major holiday, and you have attendees, guests and dealers all uncertain as to what will happen. That’s what took place at this year’s Florida SuperCon, held in Miami Beach, Florida, this past weekend. THE GUESTS AND CREATORS WERE GREAT The big name in the guest list returned from last year, this time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his show, and that was William Shatner of Star Trek fame. Walter Koenig was
Some very popular trends just pass me by at times. I see others diving headlong into what’s all the rage, but I look at the same things and wonder why. I don’t think I’m the only one, but I realize I’m in the minority here. I thought this week I’d talk about what I see as incredibly big trends that others really love, but I just don’t get! Please understand that I’m not saying these things are BAD – I’m saying I don’t understand why others are attracted to them.
It’s another double-header episode this week! First up is Joseph Bradford from TikiGod Comics, creator of Angeli Arbitrium and Elle Moonbeard and the Seekers of Shine. He’s got a Kickstarter campaign happening now for that first title coming out in trade paperback, and you can support it by going to this link today! Here’s the book’s description: “An angel with her chosen, a man with a tarnished soul, a young woman with loss in her heart, and a boy with the capacity to change the world, find each other on the dusty road. They are dragged into a fight older
I have loved Bart Sears’ art ever since I first saw his work in Justice League: Europe. He always adds a layer of creativity that makes what I’m reading not only pop off the page, but explode off it. I hadn’t seen much from him recently, but that’s now changed as of the recent Heroes Con. I discovered that he had formed Ominous Press back in the 1990s, which highlighted his own creations. Well, he’s bringing those characters back, and he’s enlisted other strong creators to join him in making their adventures sparkle for today’s readers! OMINOUS PRESS WORLD PREMIERE
