Links: San Diego wrap-up and more!
Another Comic-Con is in the rear-view mirror, and this was a good one for comics, although the movie/TV scene seemed a bit low-key compared to previous years. I rounded up the kids’ comics news at Publishers Weekly, which included the 10th anniversary edition of Bone and a new Hereville book from Barry Deutsch.
More San Diego news: Here’s the CBR coverage of the Archie panel and the IDW panel; the latter includes the news of the Angry Birds/Transformers crossover.
