Comic-Con 2007

I just made my hotel reservations for Comic-Con 2007. My plan is to be there from Wednesday through Friday night, July 25–27. It’s a short trip, but I have to be back for the weekend, so I can’t stay the whole time.

I don’t have anything official scheduled yet, but if that changes, I’ll be sure to let you know. I’ll be wandering the floor, catching up with old friends, and looking for new gigs. With luck, I’ll have something related to the show’s original theme (comics!) that I can announce by then. If you’ll be there, I hope to see you too!

  1. Matt, any new comics you are enjoying lately? Civil War and 52 were kind of blah for me overall, but there are a couple of titles coming out them that I am enjoying. In particulr, the Initiative and New Warriors books both look to be good solid back to the roots of teen angst type stories…

  3. My comics buying has been sporadic lately. I started with both 52 and Civil War, but petered out on both. I love the themes in Civil War, of course, but the constant shipping delays wore at my interest. I love the monthlies, but it looks more and more like I’m becoming a compilations reader.
    I did pick up and read American Born Chinese by Gene Leun Yang, which I enjoyed. I met Gene at Comic-Con last year, and you couldn’t ask for a nicer guy. He teaches school in between making brilliant graphic novels too.
    I’ve also been reading some more manga for another Complete Idiot’s Guide I’m working on. Plus, I picked up and really enjoyed volume 1 of Hero Squared. Giffen and DeMatteis are two of my favorite writers (loved their old JLA series), and Joe Abraham’s artwork fits it perfectly.
    I’m also addicted to Invincible and Powers. Kirkman and Bendis do such a great job with the writing, I can’t resist.

  5. Check out the Kung-fu billionaire Iron Fist and Storm Watch: Post Human Division. Both are great reads that tweak the genre.

    If you’re looking for great trades check out the Age of Bronze.

  8. Powers is totally awesome! (Cheesy phrasing, but true all the same.) One of my gaming friends told me he was reading this cool superhero comic. I went in search of it when I next visited the local Forbidden Planet. Of course, I got the name wrong, so ending up with Powers instead. What a fortuitous mistake that was! I’ve got (all?) 9 of the TPB’s since last December, and it just keeps getting better.

    To me, Powers is the The Wire of superhero comics (and you can find out how good that makes it IMO by following this gratuitous plug to my RD/KA! article about this stupendous TV cop show…). If you could glean any hints about the future of Powers, that’d be just brilliant Matt.

    Cheers,
    John 😉

  10. Erm, that’s this gratuitous plug. Plus: Stormwatch: PHD is really good too (Bill is getting into it Matt). And I think I’ll take up J. Grayson’s tip about Iron Fist– I could do with adding a good martial arts comic to my regular order. Thanks Mr. G.

  12. I agree that Powers is The Wire of comics, and that is a good thing. But if you liked the old Giffen/Maguire/DeMatteis stuff, you could do much worse than Invincible.
