Marvel is cranking out important news for C2E2 this weekend, one of many announcements surrounds Sabretooth the lifetime nemesis who has plagued Wolverine for a lifetime. Loeb and Bianchi are back to spin their story from “Evolution” in Wolverine #310 and bring life back to one of the most classic villains Logan has known.
Check out the two covers below for a look at the upcoming saga.
Looking for good freebies to catch while you’re at C2E2? Check out the ComiXology booth at the show while you can to get a limited edition renewal card for The Walking Dead Volume 1 in digital format.

C2E2 is on the way and Aspen has goods for those attending, 3 signed and numbered C2E2 prints for fans. The posters are 13″x19″ and look pretty hardcore.

DC is hot on the convention circuit now, this weekend we leave you with some details about their plans for C2E2 2012 coming up this April 13-15 at the McCormick Place Convention Center.
Before Watchmen – Panel – April 14 @ 2PM – 3PM
Panelists: Brian Azzarello, Lee Bermejo, Amanda Conner, Adam Hughes, J. Michael Straczynski and Len Wein.
Also on hand will be staff and executives at the booth for other DC properties, hopefully this means some TV related features as well. They pulled off a nice win for Alcatraz and Fringe during WonderCon and I’m sure fans would enjoy the same over in Chicago.
We’ll update the info for C2E2 as we can find it so check back often as we lead up to the show.
Back one last time with another fill of AX 2010 shots, I was only able to attend 2 days so I missed the major gathering days :/
Any thoughts from those wandering around about the show this year? Smaller or reduced exhibit hall, less emphasis on the manga / anime talent from overseas and a bigger focus on the J-Culture as a whole? It’s been a different year for sure, the new management team certainly tried to push out a different approach to the convention.
Hey guys, just wanted to drop an update with shots from the show this year, some good cosplay out there but oh my goodness the first day is slow at AX 2010, I’m not sure if AKB48 and MAX 2010 killed the crowds but by 6pm the South Hall was pacified into submission for crowds and enthusiasm. Yikes.
Anime Expo 2010 packs a variety of things in light of new management, in a new announcement from eigoMANGA the legend himself Peter Beagle will be signing autographs to attendee’s.
For those not familiar with his work, he is the man behind The Last Unicorn and many fantasy novels over the past decades. As a book covered in over 25 languages it has made itself a home in many hearts around the world.
eigoMANGA will also play host to Okashi Studios latest anime-themed game Shira Oka: Second Chances on the PC.
