The Comic Pusher Weekend Roundup for September 13

This week on The Comic Pusher I posted my advance review of the Marvel OGN Avengers: Endless Wartime by Warren Ellis and Mike McKone, as far as I can tell the first review for the book posted online. In the Wednesday Review for September 11 I looked at Resident Alien, Prophet, Avengers, East of West and a bunch more. And I posted Commentary on The Cost of Intervention, Via Mike Baron & Steve Rude's Nexus.

Finally, in On Fiction, Briefly, I reposted an essay from the writer Christel Pond and pointed out a lengthy comment of mine from a Hooded Utilitarian thread.

Comics News and Notes

This eye-opening overview of creative turmoil at DC over the past two years has been posted all over the place, for good reason. Dynamite is apparently ripping off IDW's Artist Editions with their new line of Art Editions. If it has the same production values as IDW's extraordinary full-art collections, more power to them, I guess. Marvel announces another Marvel Now initiative replete with pointless and ridiculous renumbering schemes.

Very cool: Ryan North, Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb - the team behind the Adventure Time comic - will have a new book from the new Boom! Box imprint, Midas Flesh. Comics Alliance interviewed North about the project.

Conan O'Brien celebrates 20 years on the air Friday. I have been a loyal fan of O'Brien's irreverent humor since about 1996, and his work is probably the second most important creative influence in my life after J. Michael Straczynski's. Congrats to Conan, Andy, and the entire crew behind Team Coco on the well-deserved milestone. Here's to twenty more.

The Annals of Improbable Research awarded the 2013 Ig Nobel Prizes, Voyager 1 left the solar system, and The New York Times published an article tracking the Boston Red Sox's success through the lens of the history beards.
