ComicConPunch: NYCC Announcement

comic con punchLove them or hate them, conventions have become the industry standard for fan-engagement and giant announcements. Of course, very few fans can make it to any one con. Fortunately, Retcon Punch is there when you can’t be with our exclusive con coverage, ComicConPunch.

Whether you’ve been distracted by full-page ads or inundated with teaser emails, the buildup to the New York Comic Con has been all but unavoidable. NYCC promises an all-star guest lineup, and panels on everything from the All-New Marvel NOW to an in-depth look at our newest favorite series. Whether you’re interested in potentially earth-shattering announcements or just a quiet conversation with your favorite creators, NYCC has it all.

Can’t make it to the con? No problem! Editors-in-Chief Patrick Ehlers and Drew Baumgartner will be your boots-on-the-ground, bringing you up-to-the-minute coverage as they live tweet the entire event via @RetconPunch, @Patrick_Ehlers, and @d_baumgartner. Be sure to follow all three for photos, videos, and commentary about the con.

They’ll also be bringing you daily roundups, right here on the main site, in our trusted cross-talk format. They’ll be covering everything from industry panels to meetings with creators, and while they have a rough idea of who and what they want to see while they’re there, they would love to hear your suggestions. Want to high-five Kelly Sue DeConnick? Fist-bump Greg Capullo? Lambaste Dan DiDio? Let us know in the comments, and we’ll try to help you live vicariously through them.

  1. So, I put together a tentative panel schedule, but Patrick and I haven’t talked about potentially splitting up to cover more. There were some hard cuts to make (I opted for the Lazarus panel over the Women of Marvel panel, for example), but I’m reasonably happy with this. Please let me know if there’s something we are idiots for missing.

    • I am insanely jealous that you’ll be at that Deadpool panel.

      and also that you’ll get to see H Jon Benjamin, even if I know him better from Bob’s Burgers than Archer.

      • Anyone checking this list against the official NYCC schedule might notice that the Deadpool signing isn’t actually an NYCC-sanctioned event. Duggan, Posehn, and Shalvey are just meeting up at a nearby bar to sign stuff. Patrick and I are happy to drop everything to check that out.

    • Well, I have no idea what Scott Wegener or Brian Clevinger look like, but I’m committed to doing this for you. How about this: I’ll just hug and squeeze the ass of everyone there. Sound good?

  2. Probably none of these will get answers, but if you get a chance:
    – harass Brian Buccellato/Francis Manapul about what they’ll be writing in 2014
    – ask Ann Nocenti when she’s retiring (mean one, had to jam it in when I saw her name in the Batman panel, sorry)
    – and more seriously, is the cool timeline stuff from the letters column in Lazarus ever going to get included somehow in the trades? I just picked up the first trade today and it isn’t featured, so I’m kind of hoping they’re holding out to include a longer piece of it with volume 2.

    If you get an answer to that last one I’d be super grateful, Enjoy the con!

    • Haha. I don’t know if I can bring myself to speak to Ann Nocenti (I, too was peeved to see her name on a Batman panel), but I can definitely promise to at least try to get answers for the other two. I kind of expect DC to announce Manapul and Buccellato’s next project at the New 52 panel. Either way, these are great questions, and I definitely want to hear them answered.

      • Looks like the Booch/Manapul question is off the table, they‘re taking over Detective! I‘d read a rumor about this last week but being under the impression that they were starting a new series, I didn‘t want to get my hopes up. I‘m stoked, but between that and Batman Eternal, next year is gonna be EXPENSIVE.
