Indian Comic Con 2014 Travelog: Day 2

Today’s Indian Comic Con started with a great surprise as one of the show runners took me and a couple of other exhibitors to visit India Gate and the Indian House of Parliament!

After a quick jaunt as 100% tourists we ran back to the convention center where awesome helpers Suriya & Shaltki helped me set up and prepare the huge number of attendees that would arrive that day. Today I got to talk to a number of Indian comiXology fans that were all super excited we were at the show and made sure to find us to tell us how much they loved and appreciated comiXology.

Got to see the very talented John Laymen talk about his hit series Chew and his career as a writer on Detective Comics, & more. He even elaborated on the Chew animated project now in the works!

Right afterwards I joined thrillbent's Mark Waid for a discussion on digital comics and the future of digital publishing. Which got a good amount of attention from independent Indian comics creators looking to reach global audiences (comiXology Submit anyone?). But yeah, that’s me on stage in India next to Mark, nbd.

And in the end cosplay was huge once again with such great costumes as Lady Thor & Lady Loki, an awesome Gambit comiXology fan, and even the Powerpuff Girls. Seriously some of these people couldn’t walk a foot without being bombarded with photo requests.

Tomorrow’s “Family Day” at Indian Comic Con which I’ve been told is the busiest day of their convention! Will report again tomorrow!

Guest Star KARA’s Picks of the Week for 10/30/13!

  • Saga #15 I’ve judged this book by its cover, and I have found it EXCELLENT. If you haven’t started this series yet, a) WHY HAVEN’T YOU and b) GET ON THAT. It’s engrossing and weird and utterly wonderful, and you’ll want to wallpaper your life in Fiona Staples’s art.
  • Powerpuff Girls #2Cue the theme song. The first issue set the tone as a spot-on adaptation of the killer Cartoon Network series of yore. You can just about hear the characters talking in their voices as you read. Plus, more Mojo Jojo is always a good thing.
  • The Fox #1I have a soft spot for the Red Circle heroes, so when The Fox was announced I was excited, but when I saw that Mark Waid was involved I almost passed out. It’s gonna be good, is what I’m trying to say here. Stop reading this list and start reading this book, NOW.
  • Damian: Son of Batman #1Definitely scared to read this one. DC killing off Damian was rage-inducing for me, so I’m not sure I’m ready to have my heart broken again. But I’m also morbidly curious, so, yeah, I’ll read it. I just might have to angry-capslock-tweet about it afterwards.

Kara supervises the international production team at comiXologyand is super excited about her Halloween costume this year.
