It is another San Diego Comics Con so that means another round of Eisner Awards. Jon and I love the Eisners because it nominates that best of the best from the comic industry for categories like Best Writer, Best Artist, Best New Series, Best Ongoing series and more.
The award show spotlights comics that you are probably reading and some that were over looked last year. The nominees always makes for great material for a podcast.
Many comics nominated for Eisners were reviewed by us as comics that you should be reading like Saga, Paper Girls, Kill or Be Killed and Vision. There were also some comics that we have read but have not talked about on the podcast yet like Clean Room and Black Hammer. We are looking forward to giving a more in depth review for those.
Great discussion this week. Looking forward to next years crop of comics.
San Diego is a hot bed of excitement this week because it’s the International Comic Con AKA the San Diego Comic Con. For those not in the know, The San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) is like the Mecca of all Geekdom. It is where you will hear and see exclusive content of upcoming big name movies, TV shows, comics and much, much more!
One of the many celebrations at the SDCC is the prestigious Will Eisner Awards. This is were the comic community celebrates the most outstanding work of writers and artists in their field of work.
Hello and welcome back to another CM Podcast, faithful listeners.
This week Jon and I pick 3 comics each that we feel should be made into a cable TV series, Animated Series or Big Screen movie.
Jon’s Picks are:
Superior Spiderman storyline
The Legion of Doom – not based on any comic, just a series from the bad guys perspective.
East of West
My picks are:
We each give a limited overview of the series we are pitching and tell you why it be good for TV or a movie. We also hope to turn you on to new comics series that you are not reading and/or should pick up in tradepaper back.
