The Traveling Comic Con Show

It's been a busy year on the trail with the Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson Traveling Circus and Wild West Show. Beginning in January with Wizard World Comic Con New Orleans--a short drive from my Gulf Coast winter habitat. Not a bad start--beignets, Cafe du Monde, Streetcars of Desire and all the great food to be had [...]

Pensacola Pulps and Comics

I came “home” to the Gulf Coast for a few months this winter and for the first time my two lives intersected. Thanks to Danny Fingeroth I attended Wizard World Comic Con in New Orleans and this past weekend I presented at Pensacon in Pensacola thanks to Mike Ensley, the organizer. In between I attended [...]

New Orleans Comic Con

Comics, New Orleans and long time friends—Is there anything better than this? I spent the past weekend in New Orleans staying with my childhood boyfriend and his superlative wife whilst attending Wizard World ComicCon New Orleans. CBF and I have been friends for a very long time since our early summer days of swimming, sailing [...]

Super Women and Men

Truth be told I was more than a little worried about taking on Wonder Woman. By that I mean writing about her with any semblance of knowledge, not to mention writing about Trina Robbins, Ramona Fradon and Mary Fleener, three amazing women comics writers/artists. I wrote an article for Women’s eNews on the panel and [...]

How I Spent My Summer–Part 2: Comic Con

In the spring everyone starts to ask--"Are you going to Comic Con?" Even if you don’t go, you have to talk about it because it's so important to the industry. A lot of people have a love/hate relationship with San Diego Comic Con. It's a gigantic free wheeling circus of an event but there are always [...]

New York Comic Con 2010

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. Well not the worst but Comic Con New York was a trifle more challenging than Comic Con San Diego. We’re not in California anymore Toto. Paging Miz Estrada. Paging Miz Estrada…However it did, in the end, turn out to be fantastic. We all [...]

The Major and Wonder Woman

Like all young girls of my generation Wonder Woman was a great favorite of mine. Besides the beautiful artwork and all the Greek mythology and the women in charge I was wild about that costume. What little girl doesn’t want to dress up in an outfit like that? It’s the princess tiara with the tutu—perfect! [...]

Comic Con 2010 in San Diego

The Setting I’m glad to know that Comic Con is staying in San Diego. Although I’m new to the Comic Con scenario, I have come to love going out to San Diego. There’s just something about California—the sunshine, the palm trees, boats bobbing on the Pacific—the whole postcard setting that makes it so enticing. The [...]

Return to Planet Earth

After the grandiose heights of the Eisner Awards at Comic Con 2008 it was necessary to come back to planet earth. That Comic Con was scarily huge is oh, I don’t know—an understatement? The sheer numbers alone are daunting and for us, as the old/new kids on the block it was clear we had a lot [...]

Post ComicCon

Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson's Eisner Award. Finally. What an amazing time we have had. We came to Comic Con somewhat defensively given some of the negativity that we have encountered about The Major, especially on the web and what we found was, for the most part, people who are more than receptive. Of course, [...]
