Dark Horse Senior Editor Scott Allie was a one-man show at the Dark Horse Comics panel at Emerald City ComiCon 2010, as he made some incredible announcements about Buffy Season 8 and 9–or the lack of Season 9 (don’t worry, I think he means next year’s Buffy plan is bigger than a single “season” of comics)–and some upcoming Serenity comics:

Welcome to Emerald City ComiCon 2010

New Video Post Live From Emerald City ComiCon!Follow TFAW on Twitter

Guys, it’s been the best of times, it’s been the worst of times. Overall, we’ve had an awesome time so far at Emerald City ComiCon 2010: the people are great, the energy is fantastic, and everyone is enjoying themselves. However: I filmed the entire Leonard Nimoy panel today, only to mysteriously lose it from my camcorder.

Mr. Nimoy was incredibly gracious, funny, respectful, grateful, and just an all-around amazing time, so I’m sorry to have lost it. However, I also have video of Wil Wheaton, Stan Lee, and The Guild, as well as an interview with Jamie S. Rich and Joelle Jones, so stay tuned this week for lots of Emerald City goodness.

We’ll be covering the Con tomorrow, so remember: if you want to send us a question or a request to cover something, tweet us @TFAW using the hashtag #TFAWEC3. Excelsior!

February Product Review Contest Winners

March 1st, 2010 Comments off

Every month, we choose a few outstanding product reviewers and send them free stuff as part of our Product Review Contest. There were a bunch of great product reviews last month, but it was pretty easy to pick three winners. Their reviews stood out:

Ryan reviewed the Siege: Prelude TPB and here’s what he had to say.

Good cross-section of titles, from what will go down (in my opinion) as an interesting chapter in Marvel continuity. “Prelude” features quick but sophisticated stories and some amazing artwork, especially in the New Avengers Annual #3!

I loved the inclusion of the classic “End of the Green Goblin” two-parter from 1960s Amazing Spider-Man. The “Warriors Three” story, at first looking silly, turns out to be a well-written, witty little treat. I’m not sure if everyone will, but I got a copy of “The Origins of Siege” with my Prelude order.

This TPB doesn’t spoon-feed the reader with exactly why certain titles are included, but some inclusions become obvious after reading the first issue of Siege. Not a bad buy if you’re getting back into comics (like I am) right before Siege.

Luke from Oregon wrote some really cool reviews for Abe Sapien, B.P.R.D.: War on Frogs, and the new Supernatural series to name a few. He was by far the most prolific reviewer this month, and we appreciate his opinion.

Here’s what he had to say about Abe Sapien:
One wonderfully suspenseful and creepy comic. While not nearly as good as “The Drowning” it still deserves a 5 star rating. It is a good old fashioned demon/haunting detective story highlighting Abe’s deductive strengths as part of the BPRD. Check it out.

Last, but certainly not least, Ian from the Bay Area had some positive and negative reviews for us last month. Check out what he had to say about Spider-Man: One More Day TPB.

This is an abomination and quite possibly the worst idea in comic history by having Peter Parker who is known for doing whats right no matter what MAKING A DEAL WITH THE DEVIL that makes him give up his marriage with MJ to make Aunt May feel better… and if you still want to read this after that then there is no hope for you…

All three of this month’s winners will get $25 TFAW gift certificates to pick up anything they want! Thank you to everybody who submitted product reviews last month and congratulations to the winners.

As always, we’re choosing our product reviews carefully, so please don’t submit duplicate reviews or submissions from other merchant websites. You don’t have to like the product to snag a winning review, so feel free to rant or gush.

So submit your reviews and help your fellow collectors, and us, sort out the “HOT” from the “NOT”! Who knows, you may be one of next month’s winners.

It’s simple! Just visit any product page and look for this:

Click on it and our product review form will appear in a popup. Just fill out the pertinent information and submit your review, and you’re done! We’ll take a look at your review and get it up on the product page soon thereafter!

There’s also a really easy way for you to call up everything you’ve ever ordered from us and review it. Simply log in to your account and go into the Order History Section. Next to each item, you’ll see a “Review it!” link.
