    I just got my copy today.  I enjoyed it... I guess I'm not as much of a critic of the art as others are.  I love the story though.  And the book is wrapped closer and closer to the movie, in a really smart move by Marvel.  The movie made me like Tony Stark, and Fraction isn't letting me down.

    I'm pretty sure this isn't being cancelled... at least not yet.  I think Matt Sturges is coming on as the new ongoing writer.

    Of course, I'm not decided yet as to whether I'll stick around.  Sturges didn't do a bad job on Shadowpact, but it felt to me that the magic left that series with Willingham.  I've tried to nail down exactly what it was that I felt was missing from Sturges' run but I haven't been able to come up with it yet.

    I was totally blown away by John Rogers' run on the Blue Beetle though.  The thing is, I really don't know how on earth you could follow that.  I mean, Rogers' last arc brought the JLI back together and put Jaime front and center, stopping an alien threat to the entire world.  Almost anything else would feel like a letdown to me.

    I've actually attended HeroesCon for a few years now.  (I'm stuck in the armpit of civilization know as South Carolina.)  But this was the first year that I made a weekend of it.  I didn't get there until later on Friday, but I was at the con until about 3pm on Sunday.

    I had the same realization this year... one of the things that fascinates me about HeroesCon is that the writers and artists are all just right there.  Want to talk to Matt Fraction?  You might have to dare crossing Steve Epting's line, but he's right there.  And he's just a great guy, to boot.  When I finally tracked down Darwyn Cooke, he barely had a line.  I didn't run into anybody who had a bad attitude at the show.

    I didn't think about trying to get some art until Sunday, so I was relegated to quick paid-for sketches... but I think those are my best mementos of the convention.

    Sadly, from my understanding, as more and more comic conventions lose their focus as they attract Hollywood's eye, HereoesCon becomes something rarer and rarer... a great way for fans and creators to meet, and tell one another how much they're appreciated.
