Archives - October 2015

Any nerd worth his or her comic book collection knows that Comic Con is one of the biggest pop culture events on planet Earth (and probably others, too). On October 6-9, East Coasters had their turn to dress up and head out for a weekend of fascinating panels, screenings and surprise trailer drops at New York Comic Con. Our very own Carol Fitzgerald braved the trip to the Javits Center --- unfortunately not dressed in costume, unless you count her signature turquoise digs --- and here, with the help of four TBRN friends, reports on all the crazy things she heard and saw. No spoilers, although multiple reports claim Jon Snow is alive and well and ate a BBQ brisket sandwich at the food court. Keep scrolling for some amazing photos, courtesy of Maya Gittelman.
Like Dorothy says, “Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore,” but when she touched down in Oz I bet she didn’t think it would take over a decade to get back to her roots. Dan Vado knows what it’s like. The owner of Slave Labor Graphics (SLG) and creator of the Alternative Press Expo (APE) returned to San Jose, California, October 3rd and 4th for an outstanding expo showcasing independent artists, creators and publishers.
