  • Meanwhile, down in Artists' Alley ...

    21 July 3:57 p.m. EDT

    by Matt Moore on Jul 19, 2013 at 12:45 PM

    A staple of Comic-Con is Artists' Alley, a grand space where the artists whose illustrations bring comics to life sell the original drawings. Aaron Lopresti, whose work has graced titles from Marvel and DC, among others, says there is a thriving demand for the work. Since artists can keep the drawings, selling the originals can "augment our income." The cover of Sword and Sorcery he drew is going for $1,000.

  • More Agent Coulson?



    19 July 5:06 p.m. EDT 

    "It's hot in here," writer Jeph Loeb says at Marvel's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" panel. Then he removes his overshirt to reveal a T-shirt underneath: "Coulson Lives."

    If you saw "The Avengers," the meaning is clear: The popular agent who died in the movie is, it seems, back for more -- though it's not yet clear exactly how.

    But Loeb gives the crowd what they want: Clark Gregg, who played -- and, presumably, plays -- Agent Phil Coulson. A wild standing ovation ensues along with chants: "Coulson! Coulson! Coulson!"
