Our Dallas Comic Con Special is full of very special guests and a look at the world of convention-going. Is haggling allowed? What about pet pigs?

- Co-host John Gholson has been reviewing movies in comic strip form for Movies.com of late (Amazing Spider-Man 2, Godzilla, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Edge of Tomorrow), and can be seen acting in Zero Charisma (now available on VOD and DVD).
- Dan Slott (twitter) has been writing Spider-Man for many years now during what is widely described as a new golden age for the character.
- Stan Lee (twitter) co-created many of the most lasting, enduring characters in comic book history, from Spider-Man to many, many others. If anything, he deserves more credit for crediting his collaborators than he's generally given.
- Todd Nauck (twitter) worked hard through art school and a friend showed his portfolio around at a show
- "Man of Action" created Ben 10 as a group, and in addition to the three below who were present at DCC, also includes Joe Casey.
- Duncan Rouleau's (twitter) origin story as a fan began with Avengers #113 on a road trip.
- Joe Kelly (twitter) is not the St. Louis Cardinal. He revitalized Deadpool, worked on Superman, and is neck-and-neck with his collaborators for title of Nicest Guy Ever.
- Steven T. Seagle's (twitter) It's a Bird in particular is really great, among a bunch of great work. He was way ahead of Duncan by starting with Avengers #89.
- Mark Bagley has been steadily working in comics for decades fast, clean, and with a classic look. Below is his "Zombie Doctor Strange" in process.
- Dallas Comic Con
- More from the Dan Slott and Stan Lee Q&A will be found in the next two episodes, which are all about getting into Spider-Man.
- Todd Nauck is an excellent artist, created WildGuard (a favorite series of John's), and will return as our guest on the next two episodes of Giant Size. Below is his (l.) versus Stephen Platt's (r.) "Deadpool With a Serious Injury".
- Jack Kirby
- The Man of Action guys have done a ton of stuff individually on top of creating Ben10, Big Hero 6, and more.
- A scene from Super Hero Squad, wherein Doctor Strange got some awful houseguests.
- The current Moon Knight series from Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire is so, so, so good. It drives my kind of nuts the run only lasts 6 issues, and won't be collected until October. Pre-order it anyway.
- It's a Bird is Steven T. Seagle's autobiographical, introspective take on how he wrapped his head around working on Superman. I hate that it's out of print, but it's not too hard to find.
- John "Vined" about them being out of Fried Pies. Expect a STUNNING TWIST ENDING for Fried Pies: The Motion Picture.
- Moisés got the first printing of Marvel Team-Up: Stan n' Dan
- Bonus: John has an existential crisis over the status of his bunz
