Fantagraphics has released the cover for Popeye Vol. 6, the final volume of their handsome reprint series of E.C. Segar’s immortal Thimble Theater strips.

Earth 2 Costume Week Continues AND a Priceless Quote About Superman Killing

Last time out, I was only half-right. We got the Superman redesign today (and another priceless editorial quote), but DC went back to Worlds’ Finest yesterday for the Supergirl/Power Girl redesign. Which is to say, we’ve yet to see an Official redesign sketch of anything that wasn’t already on a previously released cover.

Yusuke Murata is the manga-ka behind the very popular American football manga EYESHIELD 21. In between massive ongoing series—his next project is called onepunchman—Murata started posting a webcomic via Twitter, bsed on yet another series, Hetappi Manga Research Lab R. The story involves Murata being chased over a cliff by an editor and looming deadlines—no paranoia there!—and he uses unique folded paper and lighting effects to give the story more impact.

by Serhend Sirkecioglu

The Middle East is, except for The 99 (which I can’t read without cringing every other page) not to my knowledge a big scene when it comes to comics, but I recently stumbled upon something from Lebanon: a rather standard web comic with a very noteworthy twist. Sarab, The Interactive Web Comic is a story where the reader votes on what happens next.

Exclusive look at CLiNT Magazine's DEATH SENTENCE

beat-default

Print isn’t dead, it’s just resting. As you may know CLiNT magazine is relaunching with a Volume 2.1 and a bunch of new strips, including the long-awaited “The Secret Service” by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons.

A joint venture between media magnate Millar and Titan Books, CLiNT is based on the old-fashioned concept of a slick magazine that includes text AND comics. It’s sort of a brash mash-up of a lads mad and Judge Dredd, and it’s definitely had some ups and downs on English newsstands, but has found an audience in comics shops, both in the UK and the US.
