"The Strange Talent of Luther Strode" was one of the best comics to come out last year. It was bloody, violent, gory, but most importantly, smart. Tradd Moore's art brought a kinetic energy to every panel, and Justin Jordan proved he has a great ear for dialogue and subversive superhero plotting. Thankfully, the adevntures of the massively mutated Luther is returning this December in "The Legend of Luther Strode" from Image Comics. We caught up with writer Jordan at the Baltimore Comic-Con to get an update on where we'll be seeing our favorite blood-drenched teen hero heading.

Jeff Lemire's "The Underwater Welder," fromt Top Shelf Comix is easily one of the best graphic novels of the year. It's sincere, heartbreaking, and beautifully illustrated in Lemire's delicate, offbeat style. And when a talent like Lemire unleashes something as special "Welder" the first thing us selfish fans want to know is when we'll get more! Well, we caught up with Lemire at the Baltimore Comic-Con and he told us when we can expect another heartrending "Underwater Welder"-type epic:

One of the more unique events at this year’s Baltimore Comic-Con was a lecture given by Marvel’s Tom Brevoort - the same training lecture he gives to new, and up and coming Marvel Editors each year. The rare opportunity to hear about the inner workings of a major comic book publisher came courtesy the Hero Initiative, which charged a well worth it ten dollars extra to see the event.

Phil LaMarr Hosts The Harvey Awards

Every year at Baltimore Comic-Con, the Harvey Awards honor excellence in the comics industry in an intimate ballroom setting. Interestingly, both the Harvey Awards, and their San Diego equivalent, the Eisner Awards, were created in 1988 in response to the discontinuation of The Kirby Awards. But whereas the Eisners are initially chosen by a committee, then submitted for public voting, the Harveys are publically nominated through and through. Either way? It's mostly about the drinking.

Continuing our Digital Saturday here at Baltimore Comic-Con, we headed over to the “Making Comics The comiXology Way” panel, which of course, was about waffles. I don’t even know what that means, I’m exhausted and it’s only my second panel, so let’s get to the recap!

On the panel were founder of comiXology John D. Roberts, artist Reilly Brown, and writer Alex De Campi. Roberts opened things up doing a short presentation on the App, with a focus on their Guided View technology. He noted that as they were working on Guided View, they noticed some panels seemed to have seamless transitions. This led to creators, like De Campi and Brown, saying they wanted to make stories that took advantage of these techniques. Read More...

That’s like having all the crab-cakes you can eat, then discovering you have a second stomach! Baltimore, am I right? Okay, let’s get into this. Read More...

The last (well, second) day of Baltimore Comic Con wasn't a more relaxed atmosphere, just for kids and their families (though there was plenty of that, too. Nope, Day 2 was all about the Cosplay, cresting in the big contest mid-afternoon. We may have missed the contest itself (did one of the approximately 3,000 Poison Ivy cosplayers win? Probably), but we did snag a bunch of costumed fans on the way in - and out:
