New York Comic Con Day 4

Tired and worn out is totally how I feel right now. But New York Comic Con is always a blast. Sure there is a great deal of people being assholes but hey, that's just the way it is. I really had a great time.....eating all the food that I did. This seems to be the best part of comic con. Olivia went to a few panels and the Amazing Spider-Man panel was awesome.

During the Spidey panel we learned that Peter Parker will no longer be Spider-Man after issue #700. The following month Dan Slott launches a new book called Superior Spider-Man. It's been a long time since I was really excited about a story line. I hope that the new Spider-Man is Ben Reilly. Maybe not but i can still hope so.

Next up was the Batman: death comes to Gotham panel. Boy does the story with the Joker seems interesting. It's been sometime since we've seen The Joker in the New 52 universe. I think that every time when The Joker shows up it should be a special event, but that's just me. It was nice to see the entire Batman creative team in the stage. Greg Cappullo has a very loud personality. He's also very candid which is real in the industry. He spoke about how he really is having a good time working on Batman.

The last panel was the Drawing for DC panel. My hats off to DC for trying to bring in younger readers to the fold. I feel like DC goes out of its way to cultivate new, younger readers. Marvel then scoops them up as adults. (true story)

Then we went home to see the Giants crush the 49ers. It was a really good day and I can't wait for next year.
