You thought part one was enough? No, there is more from the 2011 Comic-Con International in San Diego, and we're bringing it to you. Get ready for more from the best in comics at the biggest event there is in the industry.
dCliff Chiang will soon be lending his talent to Wonder Woman, along with writer Brian Azzarello. Cliff tells us a little about the new take on the Amazon princess and how he deals with people being mad about her having pants or not. There are going to be gods, and fights, and all sorts of exciting new stuff, and it's going to look fantastic.
Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez are behind the wonderful and scary Locke & Key series from IDW. As the series ramps up for the conclusion, they discuss just what goes into this acclaimed horror series. Plus, as they approach the second to last story arc, they discuss what's coming up in the future for the team, and the very real possibility of more Locke & Key, after some new projects together.
Jonathan Ross, the UK TV chat show star turned comic book writer joins us to talk about his onslaught of new projects with The BLVD studio. After the success of his story with Tommy Lee Edwards, Turf, Ross has a whole slate of new comics coming out with artists like Bernard Chang, and, did he just say Bryan Hitch? He did.
Legendary guitarist Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave joins us to talk about his new comic book, Orchid, from Dark Horse. Conceived and written entirely by Morello, the musician tells us of a story about battles and monsters and magic, but also class struggles and social consciousness and themes familiar in Morello's music.
Crazy, insane, Eisner Award winning person, Jim McCann joins us after Return of the Dapper Men from Archaia won the Eisner for Best Graphic Novel. Along with artist, Janet K. Lee, Jim shared the honors in a very rare tie with Wilson from Dan Clowes. But that didn't put a damper on what was a wonderful experience, as Jim recounts it for us, as well as how he already damaged his trophy, making it slightly more like the Death Star. You'll need to watch.
Kyle Higgins is new to the scene, but already handling plenty of big name titles. He worked with Scott Snyder on Gates of Gotham, and is making a splash in the DC Relaunch, heading up Nightwing and Deathstroke. Hear his take on these new series and what he thinks of the characters, getting a little sneak peek at what's in store for September.
DC's co-publisher and superstar artist Jim Lee wraps up the show, talking about the relaunch, as well as fan reactions. He also talks about taking on art duties on a book like Justice League and what it means to do a team book so packed with characters, and how he handles the challenge, as well as the fun of it.
