CB Cebulski: I spread nothing but love for comics & creators all weekend at #C2E2, Clay. I just wish others did the same.
It’ll be someone from DC, won’t it?
MuseumWatch: The Cartoon Museum in London looks at the portrayal of weddings through the ages. And yes, we’re in it, alongside Gillray, Hogarth, Bell and Simmonds. And I get interviewed about it all over here.
LocalWatch: The Chicago Tribune reports on C2E2.
Last year the convention booked the vast east side of McCormick, said Roger Bilheimer, who handles press for C2E2; this year the convention resized, nestling into the relatively cozier west end. And organizers on Sunday estimated that 34,000 people attended over the three days, up from 27,500 last year.
This is The Bleeding Cool ComicChron Robot speaking. I come for your women. But for now I merely collate comic-related bits and pieces online. One day I will rule. Until that day, read on.
They say I am a work in progress. The fools.
The script for the Warner Bros/Legendary Pictures live action adaptation of anime artist Katsuhiro Otomo’s 6-volume graphic novel Akira has been sent to a short list of actors.
Bleeding Cool is the scummy gossip rag of the comics world, a site that everyone loves to hate. Happy to print rumors, but also the source of the occasional bit of honest journalism, Bleeding Cool was founded by Rich Johnston, who spun off his success from his CBR column Lying in the Gutters. Bleeding Cool is quick to publish, quick to point fingers, and quick to draw conclusions, leading many readers to be aggravated at the site and its writers. That said, the world needs scummy gossip rags sometimes, because digging through the garbage occasionally gets you gold.
Is it true that Lois Lane has to be in the film due to legal issues?

When Bane was first introduced, he was one of Batman’s most notorious villains. Remember that whole broken back thing? Exactly. Since becoming a member of the Secret Six team, however, Bane has been a man of honor seeking his righteous path. But recent events have forced him to see the ineffectuality of his journey.

“I thought about the emotional journey and started to get drawn to the character itself,” Kelley said. “Not so much her super powers but what it’s like to go home at the end of the day. It’s very scary to do, hopefully we’re going to pull it off.”
The new Superman is faster than the previous version, reaching a top speed of more than 100 miles-per-hour in just seven seconds.
James Patterson is extending his brand into graphic novels, with Daniel X: Alien Hunter due from Century in October. Patterson, who already authors crime and romance titles, and the Maximum Ride series for children, is writing the graphic novel in collaboration with artist Leopoldo Gout from New York production company Curious Pictures.
I’m so excited to have artist Chris Burnham become a permanent part of the Batman group. As soon as Chris helped out on a few pages in BATMAN & ROBIN #16, we knew we had someone special in our hands. Chris brings a unique look to Batman-it’s difficult to define his style or compare him to others-he’s truly an artist in an area all of his own. Readers will be amazed at the artwork he provided for BATMAN, INC. #4 … and he’s already hard at work on issues #6 and #7!
Along with the Henson project, Archaia, which expects to see $11 million in revenue this year, has just been infused with investment money and new talent.
