Joe Quesada would have loved the opportunity to talk to the guys in charge of Marvel and DC back in the day. This recurring panel is Joe’s way of giving back: ask him anything from comic books to love lives. Joining Joe on the panel at Kapow! 2012 were Mark Millar (Kick-Ass &c.), Kieron Gillen (Phonogram, Journey into Mystery), CB Cebulski (Marvel Talent Scout).

After queuing for several hours at London Super Comic Con in the hope of requesting an awesome (no doubt hipster-style) Supergirl sketch from McKelvie, only to discover a tweet MUCH later on saying he was just out his bed, I wandered down a couple of desks to watch Emanuela Lupacchino hard at work.

I, VAMPIRE #1

At first glance, this book (with it’s unimaginative title) looks like it will rip-off stories told a dozen times in recent years. Vampires, love, lust, blood etc etc.  But give it just three pages and I’ll bet you a fiver it’ll be on your pull list next month.

I don’t know where Francis Portela came from, but I hope he’s here to stay – the detail in his artwork is incredible, and on relatively insignificant background/foreground features, not just the main action. The first page, with lush vines and contrasting space-stuff really shows off his capability.

Legion Lost is a cracking wee issue for Legion fans who need more than a one-a-month fix.

Like many of the other new DC books, this one starts with an explosive struggle and ends with a reveal. Standard stuff for someone who calls himself Terrific.
