I was incredibly lucky to get to go to SDCC as a special guest this year! I had a rad time, and doodled a lot while I was there.
Check out my rambly sketchbook from the week!

these were so much fun!!!!
eventually I will get around to doing my SDCC journal comics, but I’m in the middle of a deadline, so not right now. Alas!

Faith bought me some Astro Boy figures while we were in Los Angeles as a late Christmas present! They’re really cool looking and apparently 15 years old! They join the rest of my ever growing Astro Boy collection!

The Astro Boy army gets some new recruits! We found these in (what appeared to be) a second hand toy shop in Little Tokyo.

Kill la Kill is the epitome of problematic media, and I straight up hated the early episodes (I remember having a “as a feminist, should I be watching this?” crisis about 3 episodes in), but I’m glad I stuck with it, because where the story goes is kind of amazing. And Satsuki Kiryuin is one of the best characters everrrrrr. *_* I love her.
Post SDCC doodle, recovery starts … mnnnow.

Faith Erin Hicks graciously gave me an original, gorgeous page from her ATLA Free Comic Book Day issue for Dark Horse. I love her inking style, so this is a real treat to see up close.

And focusing on Marvel and DC at the expense of the dozens of other publishers in comics, and then declaring comics a failure at San Diego Comic-Con, is incredibly myopic. It’s a mistake to think that Marvel and DC are all that mattered, that their new events or announcements dictate the future of capital-c Comics. Marvel and DC are comics, just like the other publishers, and they make some great ones when they let the creators do their own thing. But at this point? You can’t treat them like the entirety of the comics industry, or even two companies that can dictate the future of comics. They run the movies, and that’s cool, but running comics? It’s just not true any more. Image in particular outsells Marvel in the book market as far as trade paperbacks go, and that holds true in the comics market lately, too. That’s no coincidence. People enjoy Marvel and DC, but they want more than Marvel and DC.

If the announcements from the Big Two felt lackluster, but the fans still had a great time, how did comics fail? That sounds like a Marvel & DC problem. Vertical debuted Moyoco Anno’s brand new book In Clothes Called Fat at the show, a comic geared toward adult women. They sold out of Fumi Yoshinaga’s What Did You Eat Yesterday?, a romance/cooking comic. At Image, we sold out of Greg Tocchini & Rick Remender’s Low, an aquatic sci-fi tale, and Nick Dragotta & team’s Howtoons, a comic geared toward getting kids interested in the science through practical play. Boom! burned through Lumberjanes, a comic about girls at camp. These aren’t your normal comics, and people were eating them up.

"

After two bad “Comic-Con was bad for comics!”/”Comic-Con was good for comics!” pieces, io9 lets iamdavidbrothers do his thing, and the result is—surprise surprise—a great piece that’s head and shoulders above the traditional (print) comic coverage on the site*.

(* I specify print because Lauren does really good webcomics stuff over there, because Lauren is great.)

I got to meet my all time favorite artist, faitherinhicks at Comic Con yesterday!  I hope I was at least marginally coherent.  Thank you for being so awesome! 

Meeting people who have read my comics from the very beginning is such a treat! I can’t believe how lucky I am to have such fantastic fans. :D

Fanart for Gene Yang and Sonny Liew’s graphic novel The Shadow Hero! It came out recently and lots of different artists are doing fanart for it, go here for more info. I really loved the book and Gene is one of my favourite people in comics (we worked together on an Avatar: The Last Airbender short comic for Free Comic Book Day), and I’m a big fan of Sonny’s art, so of course I had to draw the Green Turtle. ;)
