comiXology Summer Reading List Day 14: Insufferable #1

The creative team behind IRREDEEMABLE brings you a new tale of dark peril, high adventure, and a superhero family torn apart! Once, Nocturnus and Galahad were St. Barrington’s premier super-team—but after an acrimonious split, one has become an elusive spirit, the other an egotistical blowhard—and the only thing they both hate more than crime is each another! What act by which terrible villain could possibly reunite them…? Join Eisner-award winning writer Mark Waid (Daredevil, Kingdom Come) and artist Peter Krause to find out!

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!
