This past weekend’s WizardWorld Los Angeles comic convention was the platform for DC, Marvel, and other American comic book companies to make several new announcements. The Comics Reporter’s “Collective Memory” feature is the best single source for all the news reports filed about the con.

Of particular interest to animation fans are the panel discussion with the Ultimate Avengers voice-actors and the Slave Labor Graphics panel, which discussed details about their many Disney tie-in comics such as Gargoyles and Wonderland. Other big news included Marvel’s announcements at the “Cup o’ Joe” panel of a Halo graphic novel tie-in to the hit video game and a new title coming from Lisa Kirby, daughter of the late Jack Kirby (more details about the Kirby project have since been published); and the results of the DC/Wildstorm talent search.

Last pup of a dying planet, a young German Shepherd is rocketed to Earth, where he is bombarded by cosmic gamma rays emitted by a radioactive spider. Crash-landing in the forgotten land of Hubba Hubba, he is discovered by the Who-You-Callin'-Ancient One and his lovely wife Pookie. Instilled with their traditional American values, he spends his young adulthood roaming the globe, learning all the secrets of Comic-Fu. Donning battle armor fashioned from spilled chemicals splashed by lightning, he becomes the Sensational Shield of Sequential Art ACE THE BATHOUND! Look, it sounds a lot better than the truth. Born in Brooklyn, moved to Queens at 3 and then New Jersey at 10. Throughout high school, college, grad school, and gainful employment, two things have remained constant: 1) I am a colossal nerd, and 2) I have spent far too much time reading comics, and then reading and writing about them. Currently working as a financial programmer in New York City, while continuing to discover all the wonderful little surprises (and expenses) of owning your a home in the suburbs. Shares the above with a beautiful, wonderful, and incredibly understanding wife named Frances (who, thankfully, participates in most of my silly hobbies) and a large furry dog named Brownie (who, sadly, does not).
