By 6am, the line for the D23 Expo Arena wrapped around the Anaheim Convention Center. Twice. By 7:30am, there were five full lines going from the entrance to the back of the convention center.

Each week, Matt Wilson, co-host of the War Rocket Ajax podcast and author of the Supervillain Field Manual, examines a major comic news item and picks a few winners and one loser among the week's comic book releases.

I've never really subscribed to the old saying that any publicity is good publicity. Anthony Weiner's political career should be evidence enough of that. But some people...some people sure do know how polish up a PR turd. Nobody seems to be better at it than Mark Millar.

truth-in-journalism

"Hero stories," muses Ryan Kwanten's sleazy journalist character, "they tend to sell less than tragedies."

"Truth In Journalism" finds "True Blood" star Ryan Kwanten playing a funny, upbeat, and kind of scary guy doing the tabloid news beat on the streets of New York. What the camera crew following him around doesn't know is that Eddie's got more skeletons in his closet than he's letting on.

Warning NSFW language!

MTVG-Marv-DC

At this year's San Diego Comic-Con, DC and Marvel each took a break from their "next big thing" announcements to hold panels discussing how to get started in the comics industry: Marvel's "Breaking Into Comics The Marvel Way" on Thursday morning, and DC's "My Secret Origin" panel on Friday.  And while both panels covered similar territory, they ended up differing wildly in style and approach.

This year's San Diego Comic-Con was an embarrassment of riches for the scholarly fan, with an absurd amount of programming focused on different aspects of comic book culture and history.  On Sunday at 1:45, I got to sit in on the Avengers, X-Men, Dr. Strange and Sgt Fury 50th panel, which featured a multi-generational group of Marvel's finest creators: Mark Waid, John Romita Jr., Brian Bendis, and Roy Thomas.

young-avengers-afterparty

In December, the 'first season' of Marvel's "Young Avengers" will draw to a close, and author Kieron Gillen has big plans for what happens next...  But before launching into the next big storyline, he's giving them a second to kick back and have fun, as he (and series artist Jamie McKelvie) are assembling an all-star lineup of artists and guest stars for some post-New Years revelry in the special issue "Young Avengers - The Afterparty"! I took the chance to speak (and geek out) with Gillen about the story, the collaborators and characters, and his experiences creating this title.

On Sunday at San Diego Comic-Con, it was time for the Women Of Marvel panel, and it ended up being one of my favorite sessions of the entire Comic-Con weekend, with moderator Jeanine Schaefer and panelists Christina Strain, Jenny Yeats, Judy Stephens, and Louise Simonson providing great insight and compelling anecdotes about their work and careers.
