Hope I got money for this...

http://www.wildpigcomics.com/ Sadly I have missed the last few Comic Geek Speak Super Shows and they won't be having one this year. This is the consolation Wild Pig Comics Convention /Comic Geek Speak Show. Really good deals to be had these shows(going by what the Geeks say about them)and guests to be announced. I want to go and at least meet the Geeks...Well I Peter at the Scott Pilgrim premiere but he left the show. I have to trade comic minutia with Adam Murdough at least. I hope I have a steady job and a ride when this rolls around. :)

just throwing it out there

Moon Knight has been canceled again. Moon Knight will die(again)in Avengers/X-men. Also I want Marvel to reprint New Warriors and Thunderbolts feel like reading them again in the case of New Warriors or most of it for the first time in the case of Thunderbolts.

New DC Logo is GOOOOO!!!!

this is the new logo for Dunder Mifflin Infinity...

No apparently it's DC Comics new logo starting in March. The idea is that the D is peeling back revealing a C whch will have different colors/designs depending on the title. Even with that it is really bland. Why does every thing seem to be getting a overhaul to make things smaller and/or blander or just cluttered these days? For an idea of what I mean see Facebook timeline or any website that has been redone in the last 10 minutes.

Now I understand the need for a new logo(which should have happened in September)with the new 52 (52!) and everything that goes with it(thanks Freddie) I want something memorable though like the DC Bullet or even the DC Detergent logo not the ho hum we are getting.

ECW,90s Comic.and theeee Dragonnn and Me!

This Saturday(right now has I type this matter of factually) brings the end of the ECW Arena in South Philly has a venue for wrestling....Wait come back disinterested non-wrestling fans! Now there is and will be many blogs and whatnot mentioning how crappy it is that the Arena is closing to wrestling or eulogizing ECW for the billionth time.Sure ECW may have started in the building but ECW is gone has been since 2001.

Has an aside to someone who may be reading this blog has a comic fan but not a wrestling one.ECW was like Image Comics in reverse. Instead of people leaving to form their own company.They left ECW to bring their talents and influence to the "big" leagues.

I am over ECW.I still like things about it but on the whole I don't enjoy it like I once did.Again and again I read about wrestling fans wanting to return to what is known has the Attitude Era of the WWE. This was the period from 97-2001 where among other things the more rampant violence and language of ECW spread to WWE/WCW much like Image influence permeated the comics industry.

Wrestling and the Comics Industries need to move forward take influence from all eras not just try to mimic one period be it's own thing. Comics is showing that in some cases such has Demon Knights or OMAC and wrestling is certainly showing that with Chikara but I just wish less people had the attitude that we need to rehash the past ad hoc and not try to evolve

ps. how weird is it to see Bob Harras working for DC?
