Rich Johnston is best known for writing a long running rumor column which dates back to the USENET. While the title of the column changed numerous times from RICH’S RAMBLINGS to ALL THE RAGE and finally to LYING IN THE GUTTERS, it would soon prove to be the most popular comic book column on the web. Johnston regularly breaks exclusive comic book news thanks to his extensive network of informants. He is also considered to be one of the top comic book reporters, although he has stated many times that he is “not a journalist.” |
Johnston has also written several comic books of his own creation, including WATCHMENSCH, THE FLYING FRIAR, DIRTBAG, THE X-FLIES and CIVIL WARDROBE. He has also written the trading card set GEORGE W. BUSH AND THE WEAPONS OF MASS DISTRACTION for IDW.
Earlier this year, Johnston left his long running LYING IN THE GUTTERS column to found BleedingCool.com, which is essentially a hybrid of his rumor column and a comic news blog. The site is already among the most popular destinations for comic fans online.
Wizard Entertainment is proud to announce that Rich Johnston is coming to the Big Apple Comic Con as the official blogger of the show. Throughout the weekend, Johnston will write dispatches from the show as major news breaks or the latest comic book rumor hits.
Additionally, Johnston will be signing at the Avatar booth (# 533) along with Mike Wolfer and Christos Gage.
