TweetHey, do you want to know a secret? Do you promise not to tell? A whoa-whoa-whoooo. So anyway, today is HEIDI MACDONALD’S FLIPPING BIRTHDAY!!
TweetNext weekend – the 23rd/24th – sees Thought Bubble kick off once more, officially the best convention in the UK and therefore I would conclude in the world, also. And there are going to be a LOT of new small-press and self-published books launching. Over 80, according to reports. And while we couldn’t feature all […]
TweetWith Matt Fraction leaving the Fantastic Four titles to focus on Inhumanity, the series will have a shift-around in 2014. FF will be cancelled, and the characters scattered into various other titles. Fantastic Four itself, however, will relaunch in February from the creative team of James Robinson and Leonard Kirk.
TweetIn a post made to Tumblr yesterday, writer Kieron Gillen announced that once the current run on Young Avengers finishes, himself, Jamie McKelvie and Mike Norton (and therefore also colourist Matthew Wilson, most likely) will not be returning for the much-implied ‘season 2′ of the series. To commiserate, I’ll be posting repeated images of Noh-Varr into this article, […]
TweetFearless Defenders, the Marvel series from Cullen Bunn and Will Sliney, is drawing to a close. After twelve issues with the characters, next month’s issue will be the last. Which is sad – but it also gives us just enough time for Will to offer another character profile! We ran five of these back at […]
TweetAlthough published by Dark Horse, S.H.O.O.T. First isn’t a biography of Greedo from Star Wars. In fact, this miniseries from Justin Aclin and Nicolás Selma is an action-adventure, in which a team of atheists track down and shoot up a succession of horrific monsters from around the globe. Why are the team all atheist, you ask? […]
TweetOut this week is Action Presidents: George Washington, a rippingly enjoyable biography of the first US President by Fred Van Lente and Ryan Dunlavey. While Van Lente details Washington’s life – as accurately as possible – in the issue, Dunlavey illustrates the events in perhaps a slightly less accurate manner. To look into the launch of […]
TweetValiant have announced that 2014 will see a number of zero issues published, each detailing the origin of certain characters within their shared universe. And although most are just what you’d expect – Archer #0, H.A.R.D. Corps #0 – one of them will be Goat #0 by James Asmus and Tom Fowler. Oh dear.
TweetJoe Hughes at Comics Alliance has the launch details for a new 6-issue miniseries at Vertigo next year, The Royals: Masters of War. Written by Rob Williams and drawn by Simon Colby, two names familiar to anybody who’ve been following 2000AD over the last few years, the miniseries will give super powers to the Royal […]
TweetBlummin’ great news out today, as Oni Press have announced a release date for Volume 2 of Bad Machinery, John Allison’s webcomic. This follows on from the success of volume one, which collected together his story The Case of the Team Spirit. Due in March next year, volume 2 will collect The Case of the […]
TweetWriter Clifford Meth made a post to his blog around a week ago, in which he detailed a message he’d received from inker Jim Sanders III. Following a failed kidney transplant, Sanders has been struggling with several health condition and financially. Today, in response to this, Meth and the Inkwell Awards’ Bob Almond have set up […]
TweetYesterday I ran a piece about Encik Farham, an alleged Kickstarter scammer who pledged funding at the top tier of over a hundred projects, only to then seemingly run a credit dispute when each project was funded. Kickstarter have sent an official response to the news, acting immediately to curb the scammer.
