Denver Comic Con 2016 - Scrapbook
Denver Comic Con 2016 has by far the best set up I have seen at a con. The layout of everything makes so much sense its crazy it has not been done before. I have already met a ton of cool people. Podcasters, Artists, Writers and many Cosplayers.
Highlights: Meeting Peter David, Alex Saviuk, Maurgritte Sauvage, and Shea Fontana.
Went to a panel on DC Super Hero Girls a new product, comic and tv show being launched by DC at the end of June geared directly toward young girls. A very awesome ideas here that I need to share. The DC Super Hero Girls focuses on an alternative DC universe that includes all of the DC universe characters but the twist is that some of the characters are young students in Super Hero High School and others are teachers. The series focuses primarily on 7 female students at the high school however male characters are featured as well. The 7 characters are Batgirl, Bumble Bee, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Katana, Super Girl and Wonder Woman. The first major event of the series has a funny name and gave me a serious chuckle, it is "Finals Crisis" a play on the famous Final Crisis DC event.
The Denver Comic Con craziness continued......
Met Steve Leialoha who signed my Spider-Woman #37 the first appearance of the X-woman Siryn. He also did an awesome sketch in a sketch book. A very nice and talented artist who I would recommend checking out.
I also picked up a sketch I ordered yesterday from Alex Saviuk which was an awesome Spider-Man sketch that I will share pictures of.
DC Rebirth Panel -
This was a huge panel that featured editor in Cheif Dan Didio and a group of DC artists on DC Rebirth.
Everyone is super excited for classic Super-Man's return, Wally West's return. I think generally everyone was very impressed with the art work and designs of the new Teen Titans. The new Harley Quinn series also got a lot of chuckles from the crowd. Romita awed the crowd with his work on two Bat-Man projects.
Also Didio mentioned a Raven mini-series is in the works.
