I hope you’ve been enjoying all of the items from this years Comic Con International: San Diego because its been a blast calling all of these things to your attention. This event is one that really finds me pushing the content envelope of our Pop Culture focuses with the occasional other category as its suitable. So a few months ago I lined out the nominees for the vaunted Will Eisner Comic Book Industry Awards and if you missed that just click HERE to review. The winners were announced the other day and I’ve only listed those names and not the ones that they beat out for the honor. Take a look and we can catch up again at the close.
Best Short Story:
“The Talk of the Saints,” by Tom King and Jason Fabok, in Swamp Thing Winter Special (DC)
Best Single Issue/One-Shot:
Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man No. 310, by Chip Zdarsky (Marvel)
This March, comic book history will be made as “Detective Comics” reaches its milestone 1000th issue. As you all know, this is the title that gave us “The Batman” way back in May of 1939 and before I get into the cover visuals, I wanted to share that classic issue with you all. Remember, Batman didn’t appear in the first issue of that comic but instead in its 27th.
About The Issue: After 80 years, it’s here—the 1,000th issue of DETECTIVE COMICS, the title that literally defines DC! This 96-page issue is stacked with an unbelievable lineup of talent that will take you on a journey through Batman’s past, present and future…plus a sensational epilogue that features the first-ever DC Universe appearance of the deadly Arkham Knight! But who is under the mask? And why do they want Batman dead? The incredible future of Batman adventures begins here!

MOON KNIGHT #200 FINCH VARIANT
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve always loved the Moon Knight character ever since he first appeared in “Werewolf By Night” so many years ago but I must admit that I am not on top of his most recent batch of adventures. I collected several of his series over the years and they are secure in a long box somewhere in my storage unit. I’m stoked to share that the characters title will hit a milestone of “200” issues (and be aware this is based on the return to the legacy numbering – I know, it confuses me too). I will probably grab this one when it hits the racks next month and hope that somehow this puts more interest in bringing him to a series on Netflix or maybe even introduced into the MCU. Wouldn’t that be sweet. Chime in down below if you have anything to add but for now I am done and be aware that I am once again attending the NY Comic Con as a member of the Press and shall be documenting the adventures on the website and across our Official Social Networks of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter so be sure to follow those accounts if you aren’t already. Until next time.
Hello readers and welcome back to the continuing presentations from my recent visit to the NY Comic Con of 2013; I am still hard at work delivering all the wondrous findings and visuals from the second day of the convention and if you are just joining us on the program, please know that I have broken down my images into fifty per posting. Let’s get a move on shall we….
I don’t really like starting off a chapter with a Cosplay that I do not immediately recognize but the Manga stuff is too hard to follow. This young lady had an impressive battle stance and hence gets the honor just the same.
