4 FROM COMIC CON: Bishop Uncovered, Walking Dead Season 4 Trailer, Giant Robot Cosplay and More...

The highly hyped Comic 'Con 2013 is currently raging in San Diego, and as it's accelerating through crowds of fans, cosplayers and displays, these are four of the hottest things seen so far:

1) SUICIDERS ARTWORK BY LEE BERMEJO
Suiciders was recently announced as one of the revitalised Vertigo books. Marking artist Lee Bermejo's debut pulling double-shift as a writer, it was one of the books in the announcement that didn't feature preview art. Well, until now. Click to enlarge this wee beastie;

Looks like the ultimate reality sport, where to be the best you have to murder the best, now has the ultimate 'reality' artist. Hot!

2) WALKING DEAD SEASON 4 TRAILER
Speaking of 'survival' Walking Dead, the TV series based on a non-'Big Two' company title is about to hit its fourth season. How 'bout that? The debut trailer for which can be seen right here;



3) BISHOP REVEALED
You can't have a time-travelling X-Men arc without Bishop or Cable. It's a 'Marvel Zombies 10 Commandment'. Proving they aren't blasphemous, Fox has released this shot of actor Omar Sy as Bishop, for the upcoming flick X-Men: Days of Future Past. Reminds me of how Georges Jeanty drew him in the Bishop: The Last X-Man comic!

4) GIANT ROBOT COSPLAY
A 'Con without astonishing cosplay is like Coke without bubbles - and no one likes flat Coke. Built in 24 days by WIRED, YouTube, Stan Winston Studios, Legacy Effects, and Conde Nast Entertainment, this one-of-a-kind, 9 foot 9 inch Mech with four arms will make 'Con fans wish Robocop was on hand, just incase the bad boy goes rogue.

  1. Okay, all that other stuff is cool. Bishop is great, Suiciders artwork is friggin gorgeous...but ROBOT!!!!
    I love robots. :) Giant ones that actually move are even better. I'd love to smuggle it home in a truck under a tarp and have it live in my garage.

  2. I could defend your Thor poster Random - I think all good art needs a robotic defender! I would use my robot to open 'easy open' bags. They're never what they say they are.
