NYCC: Panel Roundup

NYCC panel

Over the past couple weeks, Nothing But Comics has been providing a variety of coverage on the 2015 New York Comic Con. From the creators to the cosplayers they inspire, we have offered reflections on the different facets of fandom. The last in this series of articles is a compilation of comments from some of the panels attended during the convention.

Coverage of Valiant’s Book of Death and Beyond Panel can be found here & here.

At the Dark Horse Comics Classified Panel, there were a few announcements, but the main pleasure was hearing the creators discuss their craft. These observations included a healthy sense of humor, such as when Matt Kindt was asked what it was like playing the role of both writer and artist on a series. He replied that collaborating with himself was a pleasure, as “most of my deadlines get along.” For his part, Brian Wood offered that he always wants to be enthusiastic about the art in one of his titles. His wish is to be a “fanboy” of it just like any other reader.

NYCC: James Latour in Artists Alley

imageI doubt I was the only reader struck by the art in this week’s installment of Southern Bastards. Latour’s contribution to this series has always been strong, capturing the rural sensibilities of Craw County. This issue though featured a new lushness, especially in the river sequence. I asked Latour about this and he said it was a conscious choice for #11’s protagonist.  Latour explained that it was necessary in order to convey one of the essential elements of Boone’s character.  Boone has rejected town life for what he considers a more authentic “country” lifestyle.  The art needed to reflect this conviction, so that the reader could understand Boone’s deep rooted connection to the natural world. The result is some of the most striking pages of the series too date.

Cheers

LOOKING FOR BOOKS TO BUY THIS WEEK?  

LOOK NO FURTHER.  

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

 
Tyler’s Recommendations: 
Paper Girls #1
“A new comic from Brian K. Vaughn and Cliff Chiang. That’s it, why would you need to know more? Is there anything that could make
you NOT want to read this? I would try the first issue even if the synopsis was, ” A story of sloths playing chess with no timer.” So, yeah, you
could say I’m excited for this.”
