Dragon Con 2011 – Day 1

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011


[display_podcast]
Comic Book Fury was in person for Dragon Con and Gary Cooke and I give you the full scoop of Day 1:

  • We first learn how to park a car in Atlanta
  • We then talk in great length about the DC Animated universe panel. No big announcements to come out of it, but it was great to have fans interact and talk about the greatness that was this awesome animated continuity that touched the comic fans’ hearts for 15 years.
  • Podcasting is not comic-related, but for those looking to get your own podcasting gigs going, this could provide you some insight.
  • Modern Mythmakers explores the cycle of the hero/heroine with Cable, Jean Grey, and Buffy as the focal points of the panelists’ discussions. I always have to tip my hat to professors and lecturers that use comic book material as subject matter for their books and thesis.
  • Because no one asked us to talk about it, we talked a bit about DCW wrestling and “Captain Obvious”.
  • And lastly, Gary gets “acquainted” with the Dragon Con staff and their handling of the lines for the Dr. Horrible live musical.

Days 2 and 3 are still to come. Stay tuned!

CBF Quick Picks #33 : New Mutants #16

Brightest Day and Green Lantern Corps came out this week, but I put those aside to highlight a couple of books that were saved by cool fanboy moments in Batman Beyond #3 and Secret Avengers #4, a welcome surprise in Supergirl #55, and then finally a bang-up job by Zeb Wells on New Mutants #16. This one is building up really good and setting itself apart from all the Heroic Age crap that X-Men now is finding itself under. And being able to tie into the Inferno storyline with brand new villains is no small feat, which speaks well to the talent of Wells and company.

CBF Quick Picks #23 : Batman/Superman Annual #4

It’s a great day for me when DC decides to officially introduce one of my favorite cartoons into the DC universe. Paul Levitz is tasked with integrating Terry McGinnis into comic book land and does so with style – a testament to the overall work he’s been doing since returning to his writing duties after a good lengthy run as DC Publisher. It only gets me more hyped up when the 6-part mini-series gets rolling this month.

Now can somebody call Bruce Timm please and tell him a new Batman Beyond movie is a great idea?

Superman/Batman: Public Enemies

Bruce Timm is a legend amongst DC animated lore.  As a producer, he’s already brought us animated hits in Batman, Superman, Batman Beyond, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, Superman: Doomsday, Wonder Woman, and the soon-to-be-released Green Lantern flick.

Now he brings Superman/Batman: Public Enemies to the fray. It’s based off a popular Jeph Loeb arc from the Batman/Superman series where Lex Luthor runs the country and Superman and Batman are wanted criminals.

Somebody pinch me…
