4 days until my con
4 days left to go before my MidJersey con. I was interviewed by a small newspaper yesterday, on my thoughts of comic book movies, are kids interested in comic books, do people dress up at cons. All in all, I don't think I sounded like an idiot and hope it doesn't seem that way in print.
Wizard World Chicago wrap up
Seems like the wave of the San Diego con took its toll on WWChitown. But, see a photo of our good friend, writer Chuck Satterlee at Markosia.
The all-new Atom 2
"This bio-belt is an amazing, unbelievable device. " Ryan Choi continues in Ray Palmer's work as the Atom, with a belt that controls weight, mass, density-- shifting size is unstable.
John Byrne on art- the "oh so steamy nuclear physics prof" doesn't seem so attractive with the jagged edge pencils, and the shadows. I know Ryan Choi is asian, but his eyes are closed or just barely open in most of his panels. Eyes are a black slash many times. I've heard some groans about him on art (coasting on past success?) and Ethan Van Sciver has a post on the John Byrne sharpie marker incident and Heidi's creator creep squad.
Fanboys and girls, do you think the groans re; Byrne are more art based or personality based? I'd like to hear what the scuttlebutt is.
Simone addresses creating a new Atom head- (apply directly to the forehead) "I can't replace him. Not in a millenium could I replace Ray Palmer."
