Join Dark Horse PR director Jeremy Atkins, along with Greg Rucka (Veil), Adam Warren (Empowered), Matt Kindt (MIND MGMT), Michael Avon Oeming (The Victories), Jai Nitz (Dream Thief), Frank Barbiere (The White Suits), and Bryan J. L. Glass (Furious) for a look at some of this year’s most exciting original works!

Join Wendy and Richard Pini for this panel celebrating the beloved alternative comic series ElfQuest and its latest generation-spanning installment, The Final Quest. Go behind the scenes, with exciting hints of what’s to come!

SDCC 2013 – Gallery Wrap-up [Raw]

Over the past week we have worked to present you with images that captured a slice of life at Comic-Con International: San Diego (SDCC) and in their 40th year of expanding and extending opportunities for the development and awareness of comics and popular culture, they did not disappoint.  From Preview Night to Kids Day, attendees, professionals, exhibitors and staff brought us rich cosplay, mingling stars, sneak peeks, how-to panels, inspired art, toys, awards and of course comics.  Below are some final images that continue to reflect the community, evolution and intensity that only SDCC generates.  Who knows, they just might  inspire you to attend and participate.  If so, you might just find yourself in our 2014 SDCC gallery.

SDCC 2013 – Friday Day 2 Gallery [RAW]

Hey everyone, day 2 just wrapped up and I wanted to clarify something, the term raw in this usage is referring to the undoctored nature of the photos, if i uploaded them in raw format it would be insane for sizes and I wouldn’t be able to fit all of those on the camera itself.

Either way enjoy the full dimensions of these shots, thank you to all the cosplayers who have allowed us to shoot them for our gallery also.
