New York Comic Con – Legendary Releases from Frank Miller, Paul Pope, Matt Wagner, Michael Kaluta and More
Thank you to all the fans at New York Comic Con! We had an unforgettable time and if you were following our Facebook and Twitter, you were right there with us. HUGE reveals dropped at our Legendary Panel with exclusive first looks and previews. We stirred up the NYCC floors with giveaways and signings and were behind the scenes with your favorite artists & authors. Read a firsthand recap below, and visit our Facebook page as we continue to release updates, pictures & more from our latest projects.
Frank Miller gave us detail into his newly released graphic novel, Holy Terror. It’s been 10 years in the making and what went behind this gritty fight in Empire City is unbelievable. Miller hearkens back to a time when super heroes fought fascism, but brings that concept to the modern era. Watch the MTV NYCC interview for a closer look into Frank Miller and Holy Terror.
Paul Pope is toiling away to bring us two of his biggest projects: PulpHope & the reissue of One Trick Rip Off. Pulphope: The Art of Paul Pope will be a 200 page career retrospective featuring his wildly free & decadently rich illustrations, a thing of beauty that all should see. One Trick Rip Off comes back with an already anxious, cult following awaiting its release. At NYCC he offered the crowds rare glimpses into both, and Legendary has just released exclusive previews only on our Facebook page.
On the floors of NYCC Paul Pope answers a fan tweeted question “How do you feel about your early work?” Click the link to watch his response.
Matt Wagner, creator of favorites Grendel & Mage, is heading the charge into what’s already abuzz in the comic community. The Tower Chronicles will be supernatural adventure following John Tower and his team of high-tech mercenaries. We’re definitely on the edge of our seats for this one. Fans also couldn’t resist tweeting to Matt if there would be any chance of an updated Sandman Mystery Theatre. Watch his response here.
Michael Kaluta brings his ink down to create the graphic novel, Paradise Lost, based on the poem from 17th century poet, John Milton. Heaven, angels, the fall of man. We will all be brought into a fight of epic proportions. When asked “What about John Milton’s Paradise Lost inspires you for your upcoming graphic novel?” Michael Kaluta explains that there are endless possibilities.
Thank you Comic Con. Thank you fans. NYCC may be over but we’re still geared up to bring you more. Find the latest from your favorite artists and authors on our Facebook.
