It is so much fun to be able to bring one of our favorite creators onto the show to talk comics or movies or even the Hero Initiative. It’s even more fun when we can talk about all three of those things with a favorite creator. Such is the case this week as the guys sit down with Dan Brereton.
See, for more than 20 years, Cullen has been a huge fan of Dan’s work, going back to his original Nocturnals series. Since then, we have seen his work on Thrillkiller, Legends of the Dark Knight, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and so many more books. Along the way, Dan became a regular contributor the Hero Initiative’s 100 Cover projects.
Tonight, Dan will be in Portland at a special screening of the 1982 movie John Carpenter’s The Thing in 70mm. Following the showing, Dan and other artists will be signing The Thing: Artbook, which features 375 images inspired by the movie. If you can’t make the showing, and it is sold out, then you can meet Dan tomorrow at Excalibur Comics in Portland from 12-3 PM.
Following our talk with Dan, we take a look at the recent New York Comic Con, which turned out to be a rough weekend for Marvel without it being entirely their fault. We also review some upcoming appearances, including the Free State Comicon (October 21) and the Kansas City Comic Con (November 10-12).
