With Emerald City Comic Con coming up this weekend, comic convention season is officially in full swing! The Meltcast has your survival guide to 2011 and beyond.
Once again, we welcome Friend of Meltcast Andy Khouri of Comics Alliance to the table, to discuss Batman on the Daily Show as well as FX’s green-lighting of a Powers TV series.
We fearlessly dive into the wilds of the convention calendar, covering Emerald City, Wondercon, C2E2, New York Comic Con, and the 800-pound gorilla: San Diego Comic Con. Which cons should you attend, and why?
Then we take you ‘round the horn for another session of Whatchu Been Reading (54:30) including Hickman’s Fantastic Four, Brewer’s ongoing romance with Top Cow, The Boys, an extended discussion of Bendis’ and Oeming’s Takio, The Boys, and our Meltcast Picks of the Week!
Hit us up! We want to hear from YOU. Email, voicemail, smoke signals, it’s all at MELTCAST.COM!
