Notes From Comic-Con (Sunday)

There’s never enough time to see or do things at Comic-Con . . . even after four jam-packed, intense days (and that’s not counting Wednesday’s Preview Night!). I think I’ve got plenty of time to check out the booths and say hello to friends, but next thing I know, the convention center is rolling up…

Notes From Comic-Con 2016

Hard to believe that Comic-Con International: San Diego 2016 has come and gone!

Murphy

Back in 2002, I decided to do a homage to those wonderfully bizarre gorilla covers that populated countless comic book covers during the “Silver Age” of comics– especially those published by DC Comics! And I was thrilled that the legendary Murphy Anderson, the artist who was responsible for many of those simian-centric covers, agreed to…
