Tonight marked the presentation of the 29th annual Will Eisner Comic Book Industry Awards, honoring the best and brightest in the industry in 2016. Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples' Saga is always a perennial favorite at the Eisners, and that was certainly the case this year. Saga won the coveted award for Best Continuing Series, while Vaughan won the award for Best Writer and Staples for both Best Penciler/Inker and Best Cover Artist.
DC held a panel at SDCC this evening focused on Gerard Way's Young Animal imprint. During the panel, Way and his fellow writers revealed that the Young Animal characters will be crossing paths with the Justice League in early 2018. This announcement is a case of good news/bad news for Young Animal fans.
DC's epic crossover event Dark Nights: Metal is kicking off next month, and that story has been a major focus at Comic-Con this week. We had the chance to chat with writer Scott Snyder on the show floor today, and Snyder revealed some juicy new details about the Dark Knights and the ties he's building between Batman and Hawkman. Snyder reiterated the point that while Metal is an extension of his long Batman saga, it's also a story about the Justice League as a whole.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
