Or – “This One Is In My “Stuff That Makes Me Cry” Shortbox…” There’s a certain magic to comics books that is seldom found in other media, a combination of the written word and a pictoral image that often amplifies both to a higher level.  Sure, you can watch a movie over and over, but you can’t pore over each lavish image for as long as you want, and it’s nigh-impossible to catch every nuance of language.  Likewise, prose novels may have epic language and story potential, but sometimes the author has to labor to try and explain to you

Here’s something that makes a whole lot of sense; your company is letting people go left and right, you cancel and/or postpone Wizard World Texas and Wizard World Los Angeles, so you go out and purchase the Big Apple Convention.  To make matters even more confusing, Gareb Shamus is moving the show to October 16 – 18, 2009, which just so happens to be the same month that the New York Comic Con had announced it is moving to.  If Shamus and Wizard wanted to stir up a hornet’s nest of publicity on a slow news day, it certainly succeeded

Diamond Select Toys has announced a brand new six-inch bust of Zombie Spider-Man. It’s not a full body sculpt, but rather just the top half of the undead wall crawler that is sure to give the kiddies nightmares. This is one gruesome looking statue for fans of the Marvel Zombies series. Sculpted by Rudy Garcia and limited to only 600 pieces, this six-inch bust will be available exclusively through Wizard Entertainment’s Toyfare magazine. Each bust will also feature a hand-numbered base with matching box and Certificate of Authenticity. Well, looks like I won’t be getting this one, as it will

I love how companies spin it when someone is ousted from a company.  In the case of Wizard Entertainment, they claim staffing changes have been made with Editor-in-Chief Pat McCallum parting ways with the company. How nice of them to spin it that way.  In a nutshell McCallum, a founding member of the magazine, was let go, fired, deep-sixed, or whatever other word you want to use to tell the tale. According to Wizard president and COO Fred Pierce, “In an effort to grow the company and evolve with our customers, Wizard has made a number of aggressive changes over

Wizard wants it all? Apparently so. Interestingly, not a week after San Diego Comic-Con International, Wizard Entertainment (publishers of many comic and toy related publications) announced they will host a comic convention in the ATL (that’s Atlanta, GA for you who are in the dark). This is both good news and bad news.
