Comixology unveils more creator trading cards for New York Comic Con
Decades ago, the comic industry used to treat its writers and artists like replaceable cogs in a machine. This was never really true to begin with (and the families of creators like Jack Kirby and Bill Finger have recently won legal victories forcing Marvel and DC to acknowledge their work), but thankfully, today the works of individual comic creators are much more visible and recognized. Ahead of San Diego Comic-Con a few months back, Comixology launched a line of trading cards featuring comic creators like Hellboy‘s Mike Mignola and Ms. Marvel writer G. Willow Wilson. Now they’re doing it again, for the upcoming New York Comic Con.
The new batch includes everyone from Neil Gaiman to U.S. Congressman John Lewis (who just finished a Civil Rights Movement-themed graphic novel series called March alongside collaborators Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell), alongside two “rookie” cards for recent first-time comic writers Chuck Palahniuk and Margaret Atwood.
The new cards will be available at designated times at Comixology’s Artist Alley booth at New York Comic Con, and some will be given away at Comixology’s two panels during the convention. Check out the full roster above.
