DC Comics Reveals “Detective Comics” #1000 Variant Covers

detective comics logo

This March, comic book history will be made as “Detective Comics” reaches its milestone 1000th issue. As you all know, this is the title that gave us “The Batman” way back in May of 1939 and before I get into the cover visuals, I wanted to share that classic issue with you all. Remember, Batman didn’t appear in the first issue of that comic but instead in its 27th.

Exploring Five Points Festival @ Pier 36: Part 1 (5/20/2017)

Okay my friends, we are now going to present you with the fun-filled visual findings from the first-ever “Five Points Festival”.  The convention was taking place on Pier 36 down on the Lower East Side and it would be the first time that I ever went down this way for an event.  It was pretty  easy to get to by mass transit and then would be a few minutes walk.  Check out one of the promo pieces of art to warm up to what is coming in these photos.   As you can see the premise was Designer Toys, Comics, Street Art, Beer and an overall NYC vibe.  This is going to be interesting for sure.  Here we go.

Exploring NY Comic Con 2016: Day Four, Part One (10/9/2016)

Congratulations readers you have safely arrived at the final batch of posts for the 2016 NY Comic Con. I’ve been doing this sort of post for a couple of weeks in order to make sure I got all of the necessary images to your favorite device. Today begins the Sunday session of NYCC which is the “Family Day” event. That means a whole LOT of little ones are scurrying about so you need to pay attention. If you are just now joining into the proceedings please click on THIS LINK first since it will bring you a rundown of all the chapters that have been posted before this one. I’ll start my visuals with a super team of creatives in Marjorie Liu and Amy Chu. I need to look more into Marjorie’s work as “Monstress” sure sounds interesting. Amy is known to me for her work on the brand new KISS Comic which I have read in previews. They were at the Comixology table signing the trading cards with their faces on them.

PiercingMetal Goes To NY Comic Con 2012: Day 3; Part 2

Well hello again my dear readers and welcome back to yet another wonderful chapter in my annual series of NY Comic Con coverage posts. I’m presenting the second chapter of my Day Three adventuring with this one so without any further adieu let’s get right into it. I will chime in as necessary as we zip around these fifty images.  Starting up this is an ominous knight of some kind from an Anime series.  Sorry but I am generally lost with those characters.
