Fifty years of Comic-Con, and I was there to discover what new treats lay for the attendees of this vast convention devoted to comic books. Comic Con ran from July 18-21, with preview night on July 17. Announcements, screenings, and trailers for returning and upcoming new TV shows and movies were present daily. There was so much to see and so little time to see them!

Marvel comics has announced a new volume of The Defenders – written by Brian Michael Bendis and with art by David Marquez.
The ongoing title will feature the line-up we are soon to see on Netflix – Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones – but is based on a set-up from the final pages of canceled title, The New Avengers.
‘ We’ve been planning this book for well over a year and we’re so excited to show you what we think the next phase of the gritty marvel streets will have to offer,’ said Bendis.
The Defenders #1 will be in stores in June. Further details follow the break.
In January of this year, ABC profiled a family trapped inside Madaya, Syria, communicating with a mother of five through texts and phone conversations to capture the bleak outlook that she and her family faced every day. Updates followed the family as things got progressively worse – burning furniture for warmth; boiling leaves for food…
With no visuals from Madaya to work with, ABC News and Marvel Comics have created an original digital comic that tells the family’s story – a story told in the mother’s words.
Madaya Mom can be accessed through ABC.com and ABC News’ apps on mobile and OTT. Read on for details.
Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos – who worked together on the Alias comic book series that inspired the Jessica Jones Netflix series – are bringing the super-powered private eye back to Marvel Comics.
Jessica Jones #1 will be in stores in the fall – bringing Jones back as a person whose world is in a far different place. As mother of Danielle, her daughter with Luke Cage, Jones’ perspective has changed, but even so, there’s a lot going on in her life.
Riri Williams made her debut in Invincible Iron Man months ago, but since news of her becoming Iron Man full time (she’ll work on the name after she gets used to the job) has caused such a huge response that Marvel is loading new editions of Invincible Iron #7-#11 so that new readers can catch up with her before she is introduced in her own book – the relaunched Invincible Iron Man #1, by Brian Michael Bendis and Stefano Caselli, this fall.
A new era dawns for Wakanda and its ruler, T’Challa!
