Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. The creator of one of the year’s cleverest, funniest and most character-driven new plays (Vagabond Theater Group’s ode to the Comic Con, True Believers), Best New Work nominee Thom Dunn brings verbose witticism and the year’s quirkiest “headshot” to […]

Comic Con isn’t just about comics anymore. This year at NYCC I had quite a bit of bookish fun. First things first: I got to see Sir Terry Pratchett talk about his latest novel, Dodger. This was both awesome and rather heartbreaking all at once. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—I love […]

New York Comic Con can feel like something of a circus. It’s loud and crowded with a whole lot of visual stimulus. So in the midst of the spectacular promotional efforts on the show floor (there were cars, and arcades, basically), it’s nice to remember the little quiet booths where people promoted real-life heroics. Some […]

NYCC is primarily a Culture Con, but it does definitely have some aspects of a professional convention. On Thursday, Oct 11, the first few hours of the Con were reserved for Pros (comic book creators, sellers, and other professionals, like teachers, using comic books in a creative way). But NYCC’s commitment to comic book professionals […]

As I’ve mentioned before, NYCC had panels on just about everything. But one of the more prominent topics, covered in a variety of panels, was definitely the issue of misogyny in comics. Yes, there are ladies in comics. However, most of the major comic book characters are still male, and quite a few different parties have accused […]

I’ve touched on this a little before, but it bears repeating. While historically, Comic Cons were mainly a method for learning more about the comic book industry and acquiring rare or vintage editions of things, recently they’ve become more of a vehicle for publicity—particularly sneak peeks at things and grand unveilings. Here’s a little bit […]

If you’re a fan of stuff (and not agoraphobic), you should consider going to a Con. If you’re interested in selling, writing, illustrating, or otherwise creating comics, you should definitely go to a Comic Con, they’re an invaluable source of information and networking opportunities. And if you’re in New York next October, NYCC is pretty […]

Leaves fall, people stare moodily into middle distance, and my heart’s as filled as a baked potato. New York Comic Con has come and gone. I love a good Con, and this one was wonderful (stressful, crazy crowded, and sometimes overwhelming, but wonderful). And I know you’ve heard me talk about my Robin/Nightwing issues before—you […]

The annual short play festival at The Imperial Pub, put on by “Toronto’s Geekiest Theatre Company” is an adorable event. The tiny back room that houses a makeshift theatre has terrible acoustics and lots of pub noise leaking through the curtain that separates it from the main bar section. The lighting grid is sparse, the […]

Felicity’s Haircut Most people hated it when Felicity’s response to getting her heart broken was to cut off her signature long curls. In fact, the change of hair in season 2 is (somewhat jokingly) charged with the decline in the show’s ratings. I, on the other hand, love her haircut. I think if you’ve got […]
