  • SDCC 08 DAY 1: Here Comes ATLAS

    Ohhh my… I am the tired. As I’ve said before, every day is what Saturday used to be like at this show. Me can’t process it all. The first thing on the agenda was going to sign at Dave Bullock (and Darwyn Cooke and Cameron Stewart)’s booth, where Dave gave away these gorgeous Sentry posters and lots of buttons that he and Colleen Coover made- and our interns pressed into badges, thanks Elaine, Joe and Natalie. Got to talk a bit but not nearly enough with my Sentry collaborator Nick Dragotta, who finally got me to stop pronouncing his name drug-GOAT-uh.

    I think I did two podcast interviews. Yes, yes it was definitely two. I signed things at the Marvel booth that had nothing to do with me except that they had Marvel characters. Oop- the wifi cafe is kicking us out, so I’ll cut to the chase. Went to the Mondo Marvel panel and announced the news that Agents of Atlas is becoming an ongoing series.

    I’ll try to be more informative tomorrow. Again, it’s insane here. Finally saw the Owl Ship.

    Congrats, Jeff!!

    Couldn’t happen to a better guy or a better book.

    Hopefully an Eisner Award is right around the corner. Would really help push the book and ensure it finds an audience.

    And since the Agents are based on the West Coast, hopefully they’ll have a run-in or two with the X-Men.

    What’s this mean for MA: Avengers and especially X-Men: First Class? Hopefully you’ll still be on and involved in them.

    YES, a ongoing series. Marvel could recopilate the Spider-man Family, GS MA Avengers and SI who do you trust in prestige and then promotion when the series launch.

    Good luck for Agents of Atlas.

    Congrats! I’ll make up for not buying the original mini as it came out (I read it on the HC) and buy it religiously.

    Congrats Jeff! I love the idea of the series being a kinda modern pulp story. Any plans to reference John Byrne and Roger Stern’s “Lost Generation”?

    It´s sad that Agents of Atlas not win Jeff but Mouse Guard was a book with prizes and hard adversary. Is the people that vote, and have respect this decision but i think that AOA must have win, Mouse Guard have a Eisner in Kids categorie.

    Good luck for ongoing serie of Agents of Atlas, and pray that Marvel don´t fear publish because not win Eisner, i buy since the first number for help in the sales.

    If have lucky the next year the Eisner Awards can nominate the ongoing series friend.

    PD: In september Sentry at last and The MA digest, Monster-Hulk, a good month for read comics well made.

    You were robbed!

    Here I was hoping that you’d snag the Eisner which would have helped push the ongoing. Oh well, they can always do what the movies do… “The Eisner Award Nominated … Agents of Atlas.”
