San Diego may get all the media attention, but this year it looks like Marvel, DC, and other comic publishers saved their biggest announcements for New York. The New York Comic Con, held this past weekend, is much lighter on the multimedia aspect than its West Coast counterpart, and it shows—all of the major announcements to come out of the weekend were about comics. Here are five of the most noteworthy stories that came out of NYCC!
Brian L. Martin is an educator, writer, and amateur curmudgeon. An avid fan of novels, movies, and beer, he would much rather spend his time reading comics, a lifelong love since receiving a copy of The Amazing Spider-Man # 242 from Spider-Man himself in 1983. His favorite books include The Grapes of Wrath, Siddhartha, and The Complete Calvin and Hobbes, which is heavy enough to be considered the only real defense weapon he has in his home. He currently lives with his wife in Uppsala, Sweden.
