She was EVERYWHERE.
Y’know, I was not at San Diego Comic-Con this year. But my lord, every time I checked Twitter — which was a lot — I kept seeing Margaret Atwood, whose graphic novel Angel Catbird is due out this fall from Dark Horse.
I think it’s great. I wrote here that I think Atwood has a chance to remake the comics landscape and while that was probably hyperbole, there’s a significant truth to it.
Anyway, here are 13 Tweets that show that the comics world was completely blown away by her appearance in San Diego over the weekend:
