NYCC 11 – First Thoughts

As always, I had an amazing time at a comic book convention.  While I go to check out the latest releases and the new talent in Artist’s Alley, it’s the friendships I’ve made that makes it worth it (sappy I know).  The 2011 New York Comic Con was fantastic and seemed about a quarter to 50% bigger this year than last.

While the floor was amazing, the convention rooms were a bit packed and there were quite a few panels I wasn’t able to get into (bummer).  Hopefully that gets fixed next year.  The people attending were fantastic with great costumes and attitudes that made it fun for everyone. The displays weren’t as impressive, I saw most at San Diego earlier this year.  But, I got to see my name on the cover of Archaia‘s Critical Millennium hard cover, I giggled every time I saw it.

Here’s the checklist of the thoughts on top of my head:

  • Always great seeing Charles Soule and Len Wallace (and Jessica), good friends and great talents.  I especially had fun sitting behind Charle’s table and selling some of his comics for a bit (27 and Strongman).  Also chatting with Drew Gaska as always was fun, some day we’ll figure out a time for a radio interview.
  • Fantastic to hang out with Chip “Cuddles” Mosher and get to know the comiXology crew.  They’re an upcoming tech company everyone should be watching.
  • I bumped in BOOM! Studios and Ross Ritchie and some of his team.  Such nice folks.
  • The CBLDF deserves your support people!  Get involved!
  • I still don’t get anime and manga but the GEN Manga folks were so nice.
  • I got to meet a great talent Palle Schmidt and can’t wait to spotlight him more.  So smart and interesting to talk to.  He opened my eyes on a few things I’ve covered with a better perspective.
  • The Reed Pop crew do an amazing job putting together shows.
  • Mel and Archaia, Filip and Top Cow are class acts, so happy to see them every show.

Best items I returned home with besides the stacks of comics and graphic novels to read…

  • A new guitar pic for Charles Soule‘s 27 in honor of the launch of the second volume
  • I finally bought show exclusives including Hasbro‘s Hulk and the Spidey/Fireman Mini-mate
  • I got Spidey Mega Blocks!
  • DC had one of the oddest promotions, a light up Kryptonite ice cube to promote Smallville.
  • I grabbed both AKA video games, such a creative promotion.

And that’s it for convention season for me…. until 2012.

Good-bye Geist, the newest story for the leading edge magazine GEN, presents a newmystery that is engulfing the face of Yuki’s high school. And Yuki is caught in the middle. As she battles the exhausting crowds of her daily commute she, like many other young girls in Japan, is sexually violated. All the while, another young boy is secretly filming herand someone is brutally slaughtering cats. What does it all mean? Enigma spins into ever darkening chasms in the newest edition to GEN.

Single page viewing will now make it easier for fans to read their favorite manga on their favorite reading devices.

GEN is the leading edge of original Japanese manga innovation. But will American manga fans prove their support?

Also, Jmanga’s move for online publication of new titles made news a couple months after GEN’s debut. Can underdogs without large corporate backing compete even when they are ahead of the thinking curve? Fans can show their support for innovative work at the GEN manga booth at one of the biggest comic and anime festivals in America, the NY Comic Con. GEN will be at the New York Comic Con, booth 2030.

A Thought Provoking New Story that is Truly Underground

Official Press Release

A Thought Provoking New Story that is Truly Underground

GEN Manga Announces the Release of  Alive

Alive will be available nationwide Sept, 2011

NEW YORK, NY – GEN Manga Entertainment, Inc. announces the upcoming release of GEN 5.  (GEN 5 156 pages, black and white, $2.99) will be available Sept, 2011. GEN 3 is now free!

Alive is the newest edition to GEN, America’s number one source for authentic indie manga. The anthology is gaining momentum and its newest edition introduces a thought provoking new tale that calls to mind such great writers as the infamous Haruki Murakami.

Alive, inundated with sexual innuendo, is a psychological foray that continues to push the envelope of what readers have come to know as manga. Delving into feelings of guilt, inadequacy, and suppressed sexuality, this story leaves a strange aftertaste that begs readers want to revisit it more than once.

Manga is a medium that covers just about anything imaginable. But one of the most beautiful concepts about manga is that it is not limited to super heroes. Manga represents gripping tales, identifiable characters, and plots that are as intricate as most any western novel. Manga, for the most part, is a beautiful way to tell stories as it combines the written word with visual appeal. Alive is yet another interesting new adventure into graphic story telling.

GEN 5 continues the series KAMEN, where another surprising layer is reveled, molding the face of the fantasy genre. Wolf, the retro boxing drama, draws readers into emotional investment as the story continues to round out. And the final conclusion to VS Aliens is revealed.

GEN stories are published nowhere else in the world. These stories are created by the elusive doujin creators in Tokyo’s secret underground circles, otherwise known in the west as independent creators and hard core fans.

Presenting new indie manga circles from Japan, GEN, a monthly publication, will be released in the US and Japan simultaneously. Digital format and print editions for GEN are available now. Based in New York, GEN Manga Entertainment (www.genmanga.com) endeavors to publish new and unseen graphic work from Japan, being in the unique position to bring readers work first, more original and untamed manga will be sure to come!
