DiDio, Quesada meet Whoopi Goldberg at NYCC on ‘The View’


Dan DiDio informed his Facebook followers Thursday that he was set to appear on today’s episode of tje daytime talk show The View, and the DC Entertainment co-publisher did appear — not as an in-studio guest, but as one of several industry dignitaries who interacted with co-host Whoopi Goldberg at New York Comic Con.

Goldberg explained at the beginning of the segment that she attended the convention seeking advice on how to get her comic book idea published. In addition to DiDio, Goldberg — already a part of geek culture due to her role as Guinan on Star Trek: The Next Generation — sought the counsel of Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada, Kevin Smith, Seth Green, Clare Grant, Ronald D. Moore, Diana Gabaldon, True Blood‘s Kristin Bauer van Straten and more, in a comedic montage segment.

“The greatest thing I discovered is it’s really family oriented,” Goldberg said of the event. “People come dressed with their families. … They’re happy to be there.” Watch the segment below.



Okay, so that wasn’t exactly what I hoped it was gonna be, but still cool just the same.

If there’s anything the comics market doesn’t need, it’s another vanity celebrity comic published only because someone wanted to suck up to a famous person. And when the celebrity is Whoopi Goldberg, well…

Anybody got a link to the video that’s able to be viewed overseas?

Dear Whoopi, if you want to publish your comic book with integrity do the opposite of whatever you were told.

@Y:the Last Nerd, forget overseas, Canadians and Mexicans can’t even click on the link—damn NAFTA/regional content BS.

The video works for me here in Ireland.
