CatConLA Coming This June – It's Like Comic-Con For Cat People

Thousands of years ago, the ancient Egyptians worshipped cats like gods. Fast-forward to today, and our furry overlords continue to rule over us through the internet (which I'm pretty sure was invented by cats solely for that purpose). People are welcome to continue praising these majestic felines en masse on June 6th & 7th at […]

Continuing on with the Countdown (see what I did there?), this week we'll be focusing on the Best Continuing Series category.

Countdown To The Eisners 2015 – Best Single Issue Or One-Shot

Have you noticed how expensive comic books are nowadays? And when the events are happening the prices shoot-up even more. Nothing I just typed is news to the majority of readers, but it does remind us that when we plop down $4-5 on a single issue of something, it better be worth every cent. In […]

Countdown To The Eisners 2015 – Best Short Story

Welcome to the first article of many, as we slowly countdown to the Eisner awards. I'll keep this intro short, since the subject this time around is Best Short Story.

The Countdown To The Eisners Begins For 2015

The Countdown To The Eisners Begins For 2015

For those of you unfamiliar, I've done a somewhat regular column for Bleeding Cool every other year focusing on the Eisner awards, giving my opinion on who should win, could win, and should have been nominated. I'm not going to lie, I'm no Nate Silver. My predictions for the winners were about half right in […]

Part-Time Princesses Doesnt Magically Transform Life Into A Thing Of Beauty

Part-Time Princesses Doesn't Magically Transform Life Into A Thing Of Beauty

Growing up, every little girl wants to be a princess. I know my younger sister had a costume box filled with poofy princess dresses, and would valiantly parade around the house making demands. She's 25 now and still parades around the house making demands, but I digress. At a certain age however, playtime and dress-up […]

Last Of The Sandwalkers Combines Adventure &#038 Science In The Spirit Of Exploration

Last Of The Sandwalkers Combines Adventure & Science In The Spirit Of Exploration

I should have been an entomologist growing up, not an unemployed comic book reviewer. I gleefully would turn over large rocks in my backyard, delicately removing the creepy crawlies I discovered underneath. They all seemed to coexist so peacefully in this tiny alien world, and so they would continue to flourish in their new digs: […]

Bugging Jay Hosler About His Graphic Novel Last Of The Sandwalkers

Adventure, bugs, and comic books are definitely the way to any young reader's heart, and thanks to entomologist and cartoonist Jay Hosler the combination of the three is what makes his graphic novel Last of the Sandwalkers from First Second Books so enjoyable.

If you frequent comic conventions, there's a good chance you've spotted the iconic banner of the Wuvable Oaf at one point or another.

WonderCon '15 – Scott Koblish Talks All Things Deadpool

Deadpool is dying on April 8th, 2015, and artist Scott Koblish is one of the bastards putting the final nails in his coffin. While he's not 100% responsible for killing-off everyone's favorite Merc with a Mouth per se, he was the only one I could conveniently track down and give a stern talking to. The […]
