Pictures From the Guardians of the Galaxy Premiere

Guardians of the Galaxy full cast

by Brandon Schatz If you were on the Secret Comics Illuminati Twitter Feed last night, you probably saw folks complaining about John Cena and Brock Lesnar being the anchor match at this year’s Summer Slam in among the plans to destroy your childhood. Oh, and you might have also caught wind of the Guardians of the Galaxy premiere held […]

I have some nice pictures of the late Al Feldstein from several San Diegos ago, but I couldn’t find them in my 20000+ digital photo library. But I did find this bad blurry photo of Feldstein and the late Jerry Robinson from 2008. I wish I’d gotten a better photo of them together but they […]

Just in case you can’t enough of a smiling Abe Vigoda, there’s a really nice Flickr set of the Old Jewish Comedians opening up at the Society of Illustrators page. With lots of old Jewish comedians and some great shots of the exhibit itself.

The San Diego Comic-Con’s official site has a nice picture gallery of the 2013 show up, that is sure to trigger flashbacks just like being there. I’d like to steal this Galactus photo for every SDCC story from here out.

We’re at the end of our SDCC coverage! And we’re ending with Megan Byrd’s final selection of photos taken around the site. She’s found more fantastic cosplay than you can shake Gambit’s staff at, as well as looks at various signings, exhibits, art galleries and more! My favourite? The happy family of supervillains..

IMG_2740.jpg

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 contains […]

On The Scene: LA Zoo hosts ‘Wild’ Comics Event + Photo Gallery!

Comics 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. The event which advertised to come dressed as your favorite comic book hero, and partake of special activities, actually consisted of two […]

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.

Some of the amazing sights at this year’s C2E2 convention! (Not really — just some random fuzzy pictures The Beat took.)
