Oni-Con and poor Aquaman October 18, 2007 Posted by Mookie
I'm getting on the plane to Houston for ONI-CON and I'm pretty psyched. I'll have copies of both SEER'S DIGEST and ECSTASY & EVIL available there, I'll be doing my nefarious Writing Unique Heroes & Memorable Villains panel (which I'm going to stop doing come 2008) and I'll be hoping some of you lovely peoples come by and say "hello" to yours truly.

As far as comic books go this week, I wasn't really happy or impressed with the titles I picked up so I'm just not going to mention them. I don't like spreading a lot of negativity around, and I figure not talking about them does as much damage as bashing them.

I will, however, express my disappointment over Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis being canceled. That book had such promise when it began, and I was hoping for an undersea tale of dark magic and shining destiny. Once writers changed it became a tale of goofy science fiction, underwater internet references (I'm not kidding) and the Jar-Jar Binks of superhero sidekicks was introduced. Oh well. Maybe he'll get to shine better as a member of The Outsiders, or maybe I'll hafta make a case for DC to let me write Aquaman. I mean, it's not the worst thing that could happen to the poor guy, right? Aheh.

That's all from me for now.
Hope to see you at ONI-CON!
