NYCC'15: Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter

We chatted with the cast of Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter while at the NYCC'15. Never heard of the show? Well, this five part Adult Swim mini-series will air all week long starting on December 7th. Set in the pretend sleep enclave of Garrity, Vermont (aka "B&B Town, USA!"), Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter is the story of a neon-clad man with a mysterious past and a highly specialized skill set - hunting werewolves. When a sudden plague of inexplicable werewolf fatalities strikes, the Garrity sheriff's department finds itself in over its head and the fate of the townspeople is left to Neon Joe. Will he catch the beast before the next full moon, or will it live another day and kill again?

This half-hour live-action mini-series is created by Jon Glaser (Girls, Parks and Recreation), produced by PFFR, and stars Glaser as “Neon Joe” with Scott Adsit (30 Rock), Stephanie March (Law & Order: SVU), Steve Little (Eastbound and Down), and Steve Cirbus (Delocated).

NYCC'15: Cosplay

 This year's NYCC had some tremendous cosplay. I dare to say the best I have ever seen. Here is just a taste...

Two Brothers, a new graphic novel by Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá came out this week at the New York Comic Convention (2015). It's an immensely fascinating story about a dysfunctional family from Manaus, Brazil. The artwork by Gabriel Bá is one of the most beautiful comics I've ever seen. The Brazilian Wonder Twins (Moon & Bá) transport you to Brazil in the 1950s. I have never experienced a comic so captivating as Two Brothers. It's dark, it's red hot, you can feel the music and the colors (the book is drawn in black & white by the way), and you will love/hate every character. It's a gripping soap opera of a tale. It's chaotic, it's fierce, and i thought what better place to interview the Wonder Twins about it then the New York Comic Con.

Special Edition New York 2015 was a lot of fun this year. They had tons of artists, writers, cosplayers, and photographers. Here at CC2K we are all about finding new talent. When we saw up and coming photographer Tom DeRosa's awesome SENY photos, we knew we had to speak with him.

In 2008, Mark Millar and Steve McNiven worked on Wolverine vol.3 #66 and created an epic story called Old Man Logan. The story is about a tormented Wolverine who has vowed to never pop his claws out again. Logan settles down in California (now a land where the Hulks rule) with his wife and two kids, living out his days as a farmer. Through a series of events, an old Logan and an old blind Hawkeye drive across the country in Spider-Man's car delivering a package. The story has become an iconic Wolverine tale. Now with Marvel's Secret Wars event, Brian Michael Bendis has decided to revisit that Old Man Logan world once more.

Back in the day, a certain comic book magazine used to publish their top ten books of the month. I loved that article. Looking back, it’s actually the part I was most excited to read, since I probably owned every comic they said was “hot.” Now as a comic seller, I decided to give it a whirl. Here is CC2K’s Top Five Comics for the month of March 2015.

NYCC'14: Justice League: Throne of Atlantis

Writing an article about last year's New York Comic Con might seem a bit tardy, but contre monfre, i've been planning this ever since Justice League: Throne of Atlantis was mentioned at NYCC'13! That's right, this review is almost two years in the making.

NYCC'14: Cosplay and Things You Missed Part 2

NYCC'14 was a huge success. The past few weeks we've seen a lot of articles about cosplayers and what not, but here at CC2K we pride ourselves with only the best. So, come and check out part 2 of Cosplay and things you missed.

Here at NYCC'14 we've seen some amazing cosplay. Lucky for us, this trio had a little time to talk to us about why they cosplay!

 

We can agree services like Netflix, hulu, amazon, etc. have changed the ways we watch our shows. Imagine if we could access our comic collection the same way? ComicBlitz wants to form this into reality. Say goodbye to piles of comics locked up in storage and say hello to books you never could get into because they were just too expensive.
