DoubleDCoverage #18

I'm back with this week's installment of DoubleDCoverage at the Girls Entertainment Network!

Ok, so I’m one day late. Sue me. I was at the San Diego Comic Con last week and while ridiculously fun, it took it’s toll. Today we learn a bit about three Lantern Corps members and get to the heart of Supergirl. Reviews for Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps #2 and Supergirl #43 are ahead, also, check out my star ratings for my other pulls from last Wednesday!

Click here to check out DoubleDCoverage #18.

Part 3 of my San Diego Comic Con coverage is also now up over at Comic Book Resources. Here's what you can expect: Saturdays at comics conventions are notoriously busy. There’s almost no use walking the show floor, so The Nerdy Bird decided to take in some of the best panels all week: “Lost,” IDW and “Blackest Night!” Check it out and comment!

SDCC Twitter Round-up

I made it back alive! Are you surprised? I am. My very first San Diego Comic Con was a HUGE success and entirely too much fun for one person.

I'm still decompressing. I almost missed my flight home last night and I've brought tons of SDCC germs home with me so I'm not feeling all that well. I've still got a bunch of writing to do for Comic Book Resources but my first day report is already posted if you want to check it out: The Nerdy Bird's First Flight to CCI - Part 1

I know everyone was dying to see my Red Lantern costume so here's the first shot to satiate you. I'm really happy with how it turned out and I'll go into more detail in another post about how I put it all together but I just have to say, Dex-Starr totally stole the spotlight from me!

(EDIT: Part 2 is now up! See my full Red Lantern costume)

In the meantime, I'm going to post all my SDCC tweets here for you guys to read. I saw a few other people do something like this and it seemed like a good idea since not all of you are on Twitter and might not have been following along. Here they are and keep checking back at CBR for the rest of my con reports! They are in reverse order so start at the bottom and work your way back up:
