This past week, I got to enjoy a pleasure I’ve missed terribly! I got to buy new comics, the paper editions! It was great!
After weeks of being mostly in suspended animation, the comics industry slowly began making tentative steps moving forward this past week!
I’m not alone when I say that I feel like one of the kids in the back seat of a car endlessly saying, “Are we there yet? Are we there yet?” The pandemic can end any time now!
This past week was a busy one, and it’s leading into what I like to call “Distributor Wars” because lines are being drawn regarding who will get to send what to which stores.
The first Wednesday without new paper comics has come and gone, and the Coronavirus is still rocking the industry! Could we have seen the last of Diamond Comics Distributors?
The Coronavirus escalated, hitting local comics shops this past week. Will we actually get back…
More comic conventions were postponed or cancelled this week, and that was just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to changes in pop culture due to the Coronavirus.
Last week, I mentioned in my column about the Coronavirus and its impact on C2E2. Wow, has a lot happened since then! Several cons have had to shut down or postpone their events, leaving creators reacting, well, creatively!
It’s time to launch into a new year of comic conventions, and it looks like this will be an interesting and transformational year for comic cons!
As of this writing, comic book fans are coming to terms with the departure of Dan DiDio from DC Comics, who served as the co-publisher for the company for 18 years. Where will DC go from here?
As seen here at MajorSpoilers, DC is making changes or updates to their history/continuity. I’m conflicted about whether this will be a good thing or not.
Marvel recently announced that the first issue of X-Men/Fantastic Four will soon be available in a Director’s Cut format as reported here at MajorSpoilers. Should you buy one or pass on it?
Something I have long hoped for is actually happening! Comic books are coming to a theater near you—at least the Regal Cinemas and Landmark Cinemas showing Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)!
