Spike has posted a new exclusive blog from comic creator/filmmaker Frank Miller talking about the reception that the first teaser for Will Eisner’s The Spirit received at the New York Comic-Con last month.
The recent New York Comic-Con was a blast. Just three years on, the show has made it clear that it wants to be a healthy rival to the San Diego Goliath.
Allow this New Yorker a moment to be thrilled by this development. It’s good for everybody, especially, and incidentally, it’s good for my friends in San Diego, who have startled the entertainment world by transforming their show from a lonely shepherd for a much-maligned story form â€” comic books â€” into a pop culture force to be reckoned with. Well done, friends: now let’s see what my town can do to compete!
The crowd was generous and wildly enthusiastic, showing New Yorkers’ secret virtue: our sweetness.
He goes on to talk about his love for New York City, something Miller shared with his mentor Will Eisner, and talks about how the rest of the Comic-Con panel went, which you can read about here. If you missed any of Miller’s previous installments, you can read them on the official website.
