Here it is GoD readers, the first of several Jack Bauerstein exclusive video interviews from the floor of this year’s New York Comic Con.

First up is Khoi Pham of Mighty Avengers fame. Khoi was nice enough to be our debut interview and did a kick ass job delivering a solid interview if i do say so myself. Khoi talks about working with writer Dan Slott, being a lawyer, and above all else, what’s in his fridge. He even rocked a bag of chips while doing it. Truly a man of many talents.

Make sure you check out Pham’s official website.

Geeks of Doom Invade New York Comic Con 2009

Whenever I go to a convention like New York Comic Con, I’m typically on the movie coverage beat. I spend most of my morning waiting on a lengthy line to get into whatever the big theater where all the movie panels are held and new footage from upcoming films is previewed. I then spend the rest of my day in said theater typing away on my laptop, then later I type away in the press room.

All of this means and barely eat or pee or see the light of day and when I do get a chance to break away, I head right to the Con floor to snag some freebies, check out some of the awesome costumes, and peruse through the enormous selection of books, comic books, and trades. Because while I’m obsessed with movies, I WANT BOOKS!!!

I was fortunate enough to gets lots of wonderful freebies, too many to mentioned here. Therefore, here’s a list of 7 noteworthy books plus 7 single-issue comic books (and a few honorable mentions) that I delightfully snagged at the Con.

Dracula’s Heir

I saw the little Quirk Books sign and instantly recognized them as the publishers of The Indiana Jones Handbook, which I reviewed back in June. So of course I ran right over and proceeded to salivate all over their selection of titles. While I wanted pretty much all of them, I decided on Dracula’s Heir, an interactive mystery based on the lost chapter of Bram Stoker’s Dracula which takes place 10 years after the events of the classic novel. What adds to the coolness of the book (and the Quirk’s other “Interactive Mystery” titles) is that it comes with a bunch of removable clues like newspaper clippings and journal entries and once you’ve solved the mystery, there’s a final sealed up chapter at the end of the book that you break open — love it!!!

Geeks of Doom Invade New York Comic Con 2009

New York Comic Con 2009 has come and gone already, hard to believe it went by so fast. The Geeks of Doom were out in full force, the first time we had a serious posse, so we hope you enjoyed all the convention coverage.

I had the chance to talk with the creative teams for DC Universe Online and the folks in the know at Marvel’s digital comic initiative, as well as to all my favorite small and indie comic book publishers. I also got to play some alpha and beta game demos, and fill my schwag bags with a metric ton of coolness. We’re gonna set up a contest to give away a large portion of the neat stuff we pick up on the floor, so if you’re a comic and gaming fan keep an eye out for that; plus Empress Eve is putting together a list of favorite books snagged at the Con.

Here’s a small taste of the Awesome I encountered on the show floor. Geeks of Doom loves Con attendees.

Geeks of Doom Invade New York Comic Con 2009Joe QuesadaEvery year at Con season, Marvel EIC Joe Quesada likes to take time out to connect with fans at the fan favorite Cup O Joe panel. Taking questions as well as making a few announcements, Quesada gives it to ’em straight and usually brings a few friends along.

At New York Comic Con this past weekend, Quesada thankfully did have a few friends in tow. Joining him on the panel was marketing maven Jim McCann, Marvel Publisher Dan Buckley, uber writer Brian Michael Bendis, and the world traveling talent scout/writer CB Cebulski.

Sitting down to a rousing welcome from the crowd, Quesada pre-ambled to the crowd that this panel is as fun as they make it, and luckily the fans decided on “fun” for the day by cheering their faces off. After introducing the rest of the crew, Joe directed everyone’s attention to the PowerPoint presentation for the announcements segment.

Geeks of Doom Invade New York Comic Con 2009

Joss Whedon previewed his new television show Dollhouse to a crowd of enthusiastic fans at New York Comic Con‘s first big Sunday panel.

Dollhouse peers into the life of Echo (played by Eliza Dushku), a human “doll” who takes on a new personality to perform missions for an underground criminal organization and is then mind-wiped after completion. When Echo starts to put together bits and pieces from past missions, she begins a search for her own self identity.

Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica) co-stars as Paul, an FBI special agent who discovers the underground “dollhouse” facility when Echo begins to regain memories from her previous identities.

Geeks of Doom Invade New York Comic Con 2009

At the New York Comic Con‘s Cup O Joe panel, Marvel announced that the long-running comic book series Ultimate Spider-Man will get the axe soon, as will the entire Ultimate Universe line.

The news came as a “surprise” to writer Brian Michael Bendis, who joked that Editor-In-Chief Joe Quesada was dead to him. “I’m Christian Bale-ing on you!” he said.

However, a new line of books under the banner Ultimate Comics will begin very soon, Quesada replied, adding that Spider-Man is one of four ongoing books in the line. All of these titles will have the same editorial schedule as the regular line of Marvel books.

Geeks of Doom Invade New York Comic Con 2009

One interesting panel at this year’s New York Comic Con was the one for the brand new Friday the 13th re-imagining. The movie opens in less than a week, which isn’t the kind of movie you see at the conventions, but consider it a little appetizer to the film — something to make you hungry for Friday, February 13, 2009.

Right off the bat, they showed the trailer for the movie and director Marcus Nispel introduced stars Jared Padalecki and Jason Voorhees himself, Derek Mears.

Next up was right into the exclusive footage, where they showed the first six minutes or so of the movie. There’s not a whole lot to describe because everyone needs to just go see it, but let’s just say they go right into the pre-marital sex and violence and there’s a hell of a lot of screaming involved. All the ingredients that help make Friday the 13th what it is. If you really must know what transpires in the beginning of the film, then check the bottom of this post for the spoiler.

After watching the beginning of the movie, was the audience Q&A session.

Geeks of Doom Invade New York Comic Con 2009

By ScarletScribe

The Robot Chicken panel at this year’s New York Comic Con was every bit like the show it was there to honor and discuss — that is to say, chock full of rapid-fire jokes, non sequiturs, cursing, and plenty of raunchiness.

While the panel stayed mum on many of next season’s secrets, they did say a large order for M.A.S.K. toys had been placed, and they were more than ready with sometimes candid, but always funny, responses to audience questions. When asked about the possibility of an Austin Powers 4, Robot Chicken creator Seth Green excitedly answered, to paraphrase, “Yeah, guys, I’ve been waiting to tell you — no.”

He then aimed a small jab at the actor behind the shagadelic spy, saying, “I think Mike Myers is still smarting from The Love Guru.

Geeks of Doom Invade New York Comic Con 2009DC Comics debut a sneak peek today at their new Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG), DC Universe Online at New York Comic Con 2009. The game will be released for Windows on the PC and Sony Playstation 3 and hasn’t even release an alpha version. Developers did, however, set up a demo that allowed fans to play with the game’s mechanics.

There seems to be a premium placed on speed and traveling, which differ depending on the character’s build. Characters also have more interaction with the world around them such as picking up passing cars and launch them across a city block.

Geeks of Doom Invade New York Comic Con 2009Morning comic fans o’ doom,

It’s that time of year again. The comic convention season is upon us and Geeks of Doom is poised to attack it like a raid on Ironforge (Horde FTW!). We woke up bright and early, made the trek to the Jacob K. Javits center and just picked up our press badges for New York Comic Con (aka NYCC). Currently I’m in line (thanks Stephen) to be let on to the convention floor so that I can have my comic-o-phile senses assaulted by waves upon waves of all that is to behold.

This is the first Comic Con that we Geeks of Doom are theoretically “ready” for (heh, well that remains to be seen). We’ve got a whole crew of Doom Writers heading down for the weekend to cover the events from as many angles as a icosahedron. The pantheon of GoDs in attendance are (at last count) myself, Empress Eve, ScarletScribe, Meegatron, TechGOnzo, Jack Bauerstein83 & his trusty sidekick CamGirl. and Totally Bitchin’, I’m told there may be a special appearance by Missing Linc as well.

Jack & CamGirl will be roaming the exhibition floor doing impromptu video interviews and giving away tons of cool prizes to attendees. Keep an eye out for him if you’d like to get your chance to win some free DVDs, books, shirts, hats, stickers, and more. Definitely tune in and subscribe to the Geeks of Doom YouTube channel to see all of our video interviews and scenes from the floor. Also, if you have a question that you’d like Jack to ask someone on the floor, be it of a random person, artist/writer/celeb, etc.. email us or send it to @geeksofdoom on twitter and I can pretty much guarantee he will attempt to get it asked.

The rest of us will be covering comic panels, movie previews, and all the happenings that we can squeeze in. Keeping up with our coverage of all the Comic Con goodness is super easy. Just subscribe to our RSS Feed, email digest, YouTube channel, Twitter feed, Facebook group… so many choices!! So yeah, whatever works for you.

Alright, Imma go sniff my way down a row of dusty comics now.

Geeking the F! out,
Dave3
