TweetFred Van Lente’s been getting some pretty good reviews (even from me) for his Archer & Armstrong title over at Valiant. Fred’s next move is to Dynamite for an as-yet unnamed zombie comic. No stranger to zombies, Fred was the guy who stepped in for Robert Kirkman on the Marvel Zombies series of mini-series.
TweetIf it’s a convention week, you can expect creative team change announcements. In their third such announcement of the day, DC reveals Paul Cornell has departed Demon Knights. His replacement is Robert Vendetti, best known for his recent work with Valiant on X-O Manowar and for his Surrogates series at Top Shelf (which was adapted for the […]
TweetBatman is the premier franchise in today’s DC universe, with the flagship Batman title having overtaken Justice League in the sales column. Batman: The Dark Knight was conceived as an artist’s title, the original artist in question being David Finch. With Finch heading over to the new Justice League of America title (of which I’m certain we’ll hear more about at NYCC), […]
TweetIn Dynamite’s latest announcement (and we might not be half through them yet), the publisher announces its latest signing, the DnA writing duo of Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. Their assignment: Battlestar Galactica. This would be the original 1978 version of Battlestar, or “Classic Battlestar Galactica” as Dynamite is calling it.
TweetThe Dresden Files comic book has had a couple of homes. Originally it was a Dabble Brothers comic. When the Dabble Brothers operation came unraveled, Dresden Files was one of the properties that moved over to Dynamite. The adaption of Storm Front (the first novel in the series) was completed at the title was dormant. Well, not any […]
TweetTom Sniegoski has been away from comics for awhile. He started out writing Vampirella and other books for Harris (the previous Vampirella publisher), moved on to co-write Angel at Dark Horse with his frequent writing partner, Christopher Golden, and then he slid over into the world of prose. Of course, hitting the NY Times best […]
TweetMark Waid’s a pretty in-demand guy right now. He pulled an Eisner for his work on Daredevil over at Marvel. He’s also relaunching Hulk for Marvel. He’s doing his own work with Insufferable over at his Thrillbent website. He’s working on Steed and Mrs. Peel for Boom!. Oh, and now he’s going to be writing […]
TweetFresh from IDW’s Twitter account comes a teaser which makes me wonder if perhaps my computer screen is somehow laced with opiates. According to the company, apparently this January a new storyline will cross Popeye with… Mars Attacks. Look, there’s an image for it and everything, I’m not lying to you: It’s either the idea […]
TweetBy Steve Morris IDW announced today that the second story set in the universe of Chris Roberson and Rich Ellis’ Memorial series is to be released as a digital series via Comixology. And, hey, that starts today, with the first chapter up right now. One of the most entertaining fantasy stories of the last year, the […]
TweetBy Steve Morris Another teaser has been de-teased! Sam Humphries and Ron Garney have been announced as the writers for a relaunched Uncanny X-Force series, which starts this December. Perhaps wisely, Marvel are drawing a line at the end of Rick Remender’s tremendously successful run with the book, in order for the new creative team […]
TweetBy Steve Morris, UK Correspondent This year London Super-Con surprised us all by netting Stan Lee as the guest of honour in only their first year of existence, leading many to wonder how they were going to top themselves for 2013. And while they haven’t yet announced the guest of honour for their second year, their […]

Back in the 90s, Evil Ernie was hot book for awhile. Brian Pulido and Stephen Hughes had a hot run with the Chaos! Comics imprint, which also featured Lady Death (yes, that was when Bad Girls were at their peak). Dynamite acquired most of the Chaos! intellectual property, back in 2010 (Lady Death is over at Avatar). This looks to be the first book to come out from that IP family.
Archaia is another company that’s throwing its hat in the growing category of “digital release, then print.” Certainly, digital comics are an increasingly common thing, but the relationship between digital and print is still evolving. They’re taking a direction with a couple titles that I think will end up being fairly common. They’re also adapting/remaking a classic manga title.
