Comic Book Fix: Wondercon News and New Reviews
Last Updated on Wednesday, 21 March 2012 01:34 Written by david golbitz Wednesday, 21 March 2012 11:00
For the first time since it began Wondercon was held last weekend somewhere other than the Bay Area. Originally held in Oakland, Wondercon moved to San Francisco in 2003, but due to ongoing renovations at the Moscone Center, CCI, the convention’s organizers, moved Wondercon south to the supposedly warmer climate of sunny Anaheim. Convention guests and attendees braved the elements during an unseasonably fierce downpour on St. Patrick’s Day to fill the Anaheim Convention Center for what many consider to be one of the better convention experiences in recent memory, leading some to wonder whether the Bay Area has lost its signature convention for good.
But amidst the poor weather and devoted cosplayers, some interesting news was announced over the weekend. The return of a fan-favorite Marvel captain, though perhaps not the one you’re thinking of. And a longtime Vertigo writer is plunging into the deep end of Marvel’s mutant waters writing not one but two ongoing series. And a prominent voice and longtime advocate for creators to embrace digital comics is finally putting his money where his mouth is, selling his vast collection of comic books to help fund his new series of digital comics.
Read on for details on these stories and more, including my reviews of some of last week’s biggest releases, like Brian K. Vaughan’s latest creator-owned series, the spacefaring sci-fi epic, Saga.
