comiXolgy Unbound's Weekend #comicbinge
↳Thor: God of Thunder by Jason Aaron
In the distant past, Thor follows the bloody wake of murdered gods. In the present, the Thunder God discovers a forgotten cave that echoes with the cries of tortured gods! And thousands of years from now, the last god-king of a ruined Asgard makes his final stand against the God Butcher’s beserker legions. As three Thors from three eras race to stop the God Butcher, the full extent of his vicious scheme takes terrifying shape!
Jason Aaron’s run on Thor has been one of the most amazing things to come out of Marvel NOW! The God Butcher/God Bomb arc had my jaw on the ground with every page return and Gorr is one of the best villains I have ever read. If you haven’t read it yet how about binging on it this weekend?
#comicbinge comes to you every Friday at the end of the work day suggesting series runs you can binge on over the weekend!
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!
