Comic-Con International returned to San Diego from July 19 – 22, 2018 with preview night on July 18. As our very own writers Michelle Alexandria and Sheldon Wiebe continued to update us with what was going on during Comic-Con, I made the trek from Los Angeles to San Diego to be in the thick of the action. Welcome to my annual recap of my favorite conference!
At Comic-Con 2018, VIZ Media announced a schedule of releases for 2019: prose short story collection, My Hero Academia: School Briefs; a new, trim edition for Rumiko Takahashi’s manga series Urusei Yatsura; a collection of humorous four-panel Fullmetal Alchemist comics; and two Nausicaa books: The Art of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind and Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind Picture Book.
VIZ Media has acquired the rights to Castlevania: Season 1 for home media.
Inspired by the classic video game and written by Warren Ellis (Transmetropolitan, Planetary), the Frederator Studios produced series follows the last of the disgraced Belmont clan, as he tries to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepes.
All you really need to know about Disenchantment is that Matt Groening is taking on epic fantasy in a medieval setting – that means the skewering of everything from Tolkien to Game of Thrones (as well as anything else he feels like targeting).
Disenchantment premieres on Netflix on August 17th.
Like both of the sides Aquaman displayed in Justice League, the first trailer for Aquaman is somehow both majestic and just a bit goofy (in a great way) – if only we got to see the six-minute sizzle reel unveiled at Comic-Con 2018.
And no one will ever take the mickey out of the character with ‘He talks to fish?’ ever again.
Comic-Con can be a mess and hard to follow. There have already been a ton of announcements, but you don’t know where to find all the good trailers. Don’t worry we have your back, here are the 10 best trailers from day 1 in one 20 minute video.
