As the intro to the first issue of Comic-Con Magazine points out, mailing list members have long been receiving a publication called Update magazine, produced by the folks who run the San Diego Comic-Con, it’s little sister show WonderCon and APE, the Alternative Press Expo. This new publication, Comic-Con Magazine, is the evolved version of Update, will continue to give readers a preview of Comic-Con’s upcoming events as well as provide space for them to live out their mission: bringing comics and the popular arts to a wider audience.
The fist issue comes right on the heels of WonderCon, which took place a few weekends back in San Francisco (Check out our WonderCon coverage here). It features an awesome article about artist Bryan Hitch’s foray into the world of the Fantastic Four. As well, there is a very neat article that details a brief history of The Eisner Awards. And finally, there is a pretty in-depth preview of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, including a list of Special Guests, a Comic-Con A to Z Guide and Interviews with actual Comic-Con attendees.
Speaking of Comic-Con attendees, we will be there again this year. Any one else heading down to San Diego?
