n this issue’s Red Ring Circus, I’ll be covering my time at Comic Con. Videogames are becoming more and more prevalent at this convention, so I decided to get over there and try out some of what was on display. There were certainly some surprises to be found, and I have high hopes for a lot of what I saw. Keep in mind that these are previews, and I’m just talking about demo versions of games I played, not finals.
First, I should mention that the ComicCon info guide was very misleading, if not a dirty liar. The guide told all ComicCon attendees that they would be getting a sneak peek at the movie Superhero, and then described the plot.
It’s hard to believe that the man responsible for such mind-bending comics as Arkham Asylum, The Filth, We3 and The Invisibles could be anything short of completely mad. This is what I had in mind as I eagerly awaited Grant Morrison’s spotlight panel at the New York Comic Con last Saturday, April 19.
