Most people think of their Local Comic Book Store as the place to go when they need a hit of sequential art, but public libraries are collecting a lot of GNs and trades these days. Here’s why you need to keep them in mind.
This past weekend was a busy one if you attended the Tampa Bay Comic Con! It ran from Friday, July 31st, through Sunday, August 2nd. It was a good event even though it seemed somewhat smaller than last year’s convention. Here’s their website! It was held at the Tampa Convention Center, which was very near parking and hotels, making it one of the easiest to access I’ve ever attended. Once again, I was working both behind and in front of a dealer’s table. It was a great experience whatever way you looked!
A couple of weeks back, I talked about the struggles retailers were having when ordering the books they would be selling. That included DC’s Convergence, two months in which titles would appear that might exist only during that time. Well, as reported right here at MajorSpoilers.com, DC announced on Friday how they’re going to proceed after the Convergence event.
I know the title of the upcoming movie is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but this successful franchise has a history of doing big things for a while, then going into hibernation before coming back again strongly. Well, during the recent Thanksgiving holiday weekend, Star Wars woke up in a big way, and it will affect the comics! If you were online at all since Friday morning, you’ve at least seen the trailer! Here’s the link for us here at MajorSpoilers.com!
All girls like Wonder Woman. It’s practically an adage in the comic book community. Well, I’m a woman who had zero interest in Wonder Woman, Diana Prince or whatever else you wanted to call her until a few short weeks ago. Let me explain to you why I wouldn’t wonder and where my conversion lies.
A couple of weeks ago, during a recording of Top Five, I made the prediction that in the next couple of years a stash of Doctor Who episodes once thought lost would be found. Since then, we’ve been inundated with people telling us of the newly discovered lost episodes from Nigeria. While some of you are once again claiming my prognostication record is better than Nostradamus, there is a better answer to this particular prediction than “Beware the Power of Stephen!” Nothing is ever truly destroyed.
Continuity. The bane of many a comic book reader. At times, when used right, it can add to the reading experience but other times can make for a frustrating or downright miserable one. But should it matter that much? Is it that important? I say no, so continue on, Dear Reader, and find out why!
I’ve been following with interest the response to last week’s announcement that Ben Affleck will take over the movie role of Batman/Bruce Wayne from Christian Bale. It’s time for me to weigh in on this latest comics-related controversy!
