JTMosh writes in with the following report out of the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend.
“Does anybody have a laptop?” That’s the way Thomas Jane started off his RAW Studios panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. It seems there was some sort of technical difficulty with their initial set-up.
And as he’s known to do, Jane just rolled with it.
After securing a computer from one of the attendees, and getting all that set up, the panel was getting off to a late start. As people were still trickling in, Jane seemed to decide, “To hell with it; let’s just do this.” And the panel started. There was none of the usual formality associated with a Comic-Con panel on display here. There was no barrier between the panelists and the audience. Instead of sitting up on a stage talking into microphones, as is the Comic-Con standard, these panelists stood on the floor talking with their fans. It was an incredibly refreshing thing to see. It felt much less like celebrities talking at a crowd and more like a group of like-minded people talking about the stuff they love.
On hand were the man himself, Tom Jane; legendary comic artist Tim Bradstreet; longtime 2000 A.D., Judge Dredd and Bad Planet Issues 7-8 artist Greg Staples; artist on Bad Planet Issues 1-6 and lead concept artist at High Noon Studios Jim Daily; writer of the upcoming A Magnificent Death from a Shattered Hand Jose Prendes; production designer on Return of the Living Dead and artist on many films including Conan the Barbarian, First Blood, and Pan’s Labyrinth William Stout; and as a surprise for the end of the panel, Hellboy himself, Ron Perlman.
Here are some of the more juicy details! READ MORE

Both Rucka and The Punisher are back and better than ever. This new Punisher series is dark, gritty, and showcases just how enigmatic Frank Castle can be. The last issue of Rucka’s new ‘The Punisher’ series ended in a place I don’t think anyone expected. The Vulture flew into the last few pages of the book, and no he’s not the same old green-tight wearing bozo he used to be. Rucka’s Vulture looks more like a hell-spawn than anything, and he’s about to get a big black Punisher boot in his ugly face. On another note, has anyone else noticed that the detectives in this are exactly the same as Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt inSe7en…Anyway, check this bloody preview of ‘The Punisher’ #3.

Luckily for us, Greg Rucka has returned to the Marvel mainstream to deliver a scary, dark, and killer new Punisher series that will absolutely kick your face in.

Marvel Comics has released their previews for the month of July, and one of the most interesting ones has to be the showdown between “DARK WOLVERINE” and Rick Remender’s (“DOCOTOR VOODOO”) “FRANKEN-CASTLE” in the spin-off title’s 19th issue.

You just can’t keep Frank Castle down.

I don’t think anyone could have foreseen this one coming in the beginning. If you had told me that Marvel was going to resurrect a dead Frank Castle with Morbius’ help and start a ‘MUNSTERS’ like storyline with the character I would have told you you were insane. But I’d have been dead wrong. (That was almost painful.) It was announced yesterday that Marvel Studios will indeed be keeping Rick Remender’s (“DOCTOR VOODOO: AVENGER OF THE SUPERNATURAL”, “THE AVENGERS”) Franken-Castle around for the foreseeable future! Read on for the skinny!
“PUNISHER” fans seem to be torn on the topic of Rick Remender’s (“X-MEN”, “DOCTOR VOODOO”) “Frankencastle” arc. Depending on what circle you talk to you’ll hear a mixture of pure, drooling, compliments and seething, eye-rolling, hatred. But whatever side of the fence you might find yourself you can’t deny the hilarity of the run, something that “DEADPOOL” fans can attest to. So without further teasing, read on for the 7 page preview of “PUNISHER” #14 (Frankencastle #4)
