Author David Liss has rapidly made a name for himself in comics, working on (excellent) series like Marvel's 'Mystery Men' and 'Black Panther,' as well as 'The Spider' for Dynamite. Now, he's launching his first creator owned work during the hub-bub of New York Comic Con through indie publisher 215 Ink... And here's the pitch for 'Angelica Tomorrow,' as told to me by Liss:

"It's the classic paralyzed-alcoholic-teenager-meets-amnesiac-cyborg-assassin story -- but with a twist!" Read More...

We'll find out more about this at New York Comic Con, but here's the big news: Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning are heading back to space for a brand new Battlestar Galactica series. As we found out later, it picks up right where Marc Guggenheim's apocalyptic tale left off... But with a DnA twist:

MTV Geek: Just to start off, if you guys love space so much, why don’t you marry it?

DnA: Alex you’re a nut! Read More...

Ales Kot's 'Wild Children' was one of the more daring books out this year, but it doesn't look like the writer is stopping there. Starting December, he's teaming up with Morgan Jeske, Sloane Leong, and Ed Brisson to bring the story of some LA slackers who find out Atlantis is under their feet, quite literally.

The four issue mini doesn't hit for another two months, but the team have been steadily releasing teasers leading up to New York Comic Con where, presumably, we'll get more info. Here they all are, and see if you can figure out just exactly what change is coming: Read More...

If you thought Dynamite's crime line was done with its big announcements at New York Comic Con, you were wrong: after Garth Ennis' "Red Team," the next big title will be from none other than Andy Diggle:

MTV Geek: Andy, what brings you to Dynamite, and helping launch Dynamite's new crime line?

Andy Diggle: Every time I run into Nick Barrucci at a con we talk about me maybe doing something with Dynamite, and it's always been a question of finding the right project. When he mentioned they were putting together a line of gritty crime books, I jumped at the chance. It's not every day you get the opportunity to build something new from the ground up like this - a smart, hard-hitting crime book for grownups. The kind of book I want to read myself. It's a perfect fit for me.

Following their partnership with action Figure Xpress at SDCC 2012, Diamond Select Toys is once again partnering up to release ThunderCats and Alpha Flight Minimate sets at New York Comic-Con 2012! This time, the evil forces of Thundera have made their presence felt as Slithe, Jackalman, Monkian, and Vultureman can now join the previously released Mumm-Ra in the fight against the ThunderCats. Also on tap is another batch of Alpha Flight members from the often-canceled Marvel comic book. This set includes Sasquatch, Shaman, Snowbird, and Aurora, so the Canadian super team is almost completely filled out. They must feel so sad to have lost Wolverine all those years ago.

It's writer Garth Ennis' big news for New York Comic Con, and it got broken early: the prolific writer will be launching Dynamite's new crime line with "Red Team." In the comic, a group of elite New York Police Officers decide to murder a suspect...and then things get way worse. To find out more, we chatted with Ennis' about the title, as well as the launch of the line:

Mark Waid is no stranger to relaunches. From representing the newest take on Daredevil in decades, to recent runs on The Rocketeer and Steed & Peel, Waid has put his imprint on some of the greatest characters in the comic book medium. Now, he's taking on another icon, as he tells what might be the final tale of the Green Hornet for Dynamite. We'll find out more this week at New York Comic Con, but in advance of the official announcement we chatted with Waid about his take on Britt Reid, Kato, and even the Black Beauty:

MTV Geek: Mark, between Green Hornet, Steed & Peel, and Rocketeer, I feel like you’re turning into “The Olde Timey Reboot” Guy… Are we going to see you tackling The Yellow Kid next?

Mark Waid: Annnnd there goes my career, ladies and gentlemen! It's been a good year, thanks for that! See ya! If anyone needs me, I'll be at the Springfield Retirement Castle watching my afternoon stories on the black-and-white Philco. Read More...

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: the best part of a big convention like New York Comic Con is the nooks and crannies, the panels and events that are seldom attended, but provide a look at a life beyond your big comic book announcements and TV clip reels. Here’s your schedule for the weirdest, most interesting panels at NYCC 2012:

New York Comic Con isn’t just about the panels, the signings, and the exclusives… It’s also about the parties and events outside of the Javits Center. And while there may not be a Gaslamp district right outside like in San Diego, you’ve only got all of New York to rage in, all night long. Here’s a rundown of some of the big events not cooped up in the Convention Hall:

MTV Geek Live's Steven Smith smack-dab in the Whedonverse...

By Steven Smith

We know I’m a big Batman fan, if you’re a fan of this column (thank you)...then you know the story about how Adam West as Batman was my first memory as child. So, with this in mind you can imagine the dance I’ve been doing when I found out Adam West was going to be at New York Comic Con AND – wait for it – I might be doing a sit down interview with his Adamajesty. The dance involves pierouettes and several kick turns if you want to be specific. And you do want to be specific. The funny thing is I met Mr. West before. Many, many moons ago I tested for a Fox sitcom pilot out in Los Angeles. I was a disheveled long-hair going in for the role of a disheveled long hair and testing for the part of eccentric town mayor was one Adam West. Read More...

Next week marks the kick-off of a convention so big, some pros – and fans – have taken to calling it “San Diego 2.” That’s right, it’s New York Comic-Con 2012, and by all indications, the crowds should be even more massive than the last, record breaking year. To help you get through the crush, we’ve put together a list of THE must see panels, to help you schedule your whole weekend. Oh, and by the way… Your weekend starts on Thursday:

Mini-figures and G.I. Joes are two types of toys that I'm a complete sucker for. Now, Hasbro has decided (according to this teaser poster they sent my way) to take all my money away by combining their G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero characters with the miniscule cuteness of their Kreons. Thanks a lot, you money-hungry toy barons! Anyway, during New York Comic-Con 2012, Hasbro will not have the booth presence that everyone has grown accustomed to and will instead be hosting a special press event on October 10th. Lots of late 2012 and 2013 toys will be on display, and I'll be there snapping photos and plotting an elaborate scheme to snag all of their wares. Until then, read on for a look at the teaser poster for the upcoming G.I. Joe Kreo sets!
