TweetWe’re at the end of our SDCC coverage! And we’re ending with Megan Byrd’s final selection of photos taken around the site.

Tweet ONe of our most trusted spies “Connie Snowden” managed to snap some surreptitious photos during set-up last night. The Lego booth looks amazing, you can look up He-Man’s skirt, Weta has yet another incredible model for The Hobbit Part 2, still under wraps. But no lie, the bes booth of all is Legendary which […]

TweetComics are everywhere. In the boom of the small comics event, even the LA Zoo staged a “Comics Jungle” event last Saturday geared at kids but drawing in families, artists, illustrators, and cosplayers.

C2E2 Photo Parade: The Good, The Bad, and The Cosplay

My journey to salty meat began with this "salami sandwich" at the Eleven Diner. The pickle provides valuable fiber and nutrition.

IMG_1635.jpg

TweetQuite a few remembrances of underground pioneer Spain Rodriguez, including this round-up of reactions from his peers at TCJ. Here’s Gary Panter’s imagined history: SPAIN looked to be exploring edgy scenes and choosing to do bad things and hang out with violent sociopathic folk in his comics and past at least–people that did BAAAAADD things!!! […]

TweetArtist Joe Quinones tries his hardest to make friends and network at conventions, he really does, but for some reason everybody who comes into contact with him develops a murderous blood lust. Revealed today in a harrowing series of portraits on Quinones’ blog, a full display of cosplayer brutality has now come to light. And […]

SPX 2012: the last photo bomb

Pat Barrett, Dakota McFadzean, Beth Hetland

TweetBY JEN VAUGHN – These photos are photos that SHOULD be out on the internet somewhere instead of sitting on my phone. Chris Ware, Daniel Clowes, Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez, and Charles Burns are all fantastic and so very polite, but take a peak at the cartoonists and talent (younger and not as polite) who […]

A Little Adventure Time

TweetYou don’t always have to think big when you decide to be awesome. When an artist named Oviot decided to pay tribute to Adventure Time, she elected to do so on the smallest scale imaginable. And when I say small, I’m talking about… ooh, around 1cm. Incredibly, she’s rendered miniature figurines of Finn, Jake, and […]
