‘Comics Economics’ Has Sound Advice For Aspiring Creators

The Cute Girl Network
The Cute Girl Network

People who want to break into the comics profession as artists and writers often think a whole bunch about the creative side of things, then only come to terms with the business side when they realize that's a huge part of it, too, often after they've already started working. That mentality sometimes leads to people making bad deals, giving up rights they shouldn't, and otherwise hurting themselves professionally.

To help aspiring creators from going down that path, MK Reed and Joe Flood -- who are comic creators in their own right -- created the document "Comics Economics: How To Earn a Living With a Comics Degree." It answers questions about contracts, finances, page rates and more in a straightforward, easy-to-understand way, and it's a must-read for folks who want to make their way in the world of comics.

Mike Maihack’s ‘Cleopatra In Space’ Is The All Ages Sci-Fi Heroine We’ve Been Waiting For [Preview]

Cleopatra In Space By Mike Maihack

You're reading this on the Internet, so there's a good chance that you're already familiar with Mike Maihack, whose super cute, super fun Supergirl/Batgirl fan comics pretty much take over whenever he draws a new one. I've been a fan of those for a long time, and ever since I saw the first one, I've been wondering whether he was going to turn his attention to a full-length story with a similar aesthetic, and with Cleopatra In Space, it looks like that's exactly what he's done.

The full-color OGN is set for release on April 29 from Scholastic, sending the teen Queen of Egypt out into the depths of space for a rollicking all-ages adventure. I can't wait to read it, and fortunately, I don't have to -- check below for a preview of the first 13 pages!

Kevin Conroy Returns For ‘Batman: Assault On Arkham’ Animated Feature Based On the Video Game Universe [Video]

Batman: Assault On Arkham

So hey, have you heard about these Arkham games starring Batman? It seems they are pretty popular, friends -- so popular, in fact, that in addition to there being four of them in the video game series, we are now getting a full-length animated movie based on the Arkham Games in which Kevin Conroy reprises his role as Batman. It's called Batman: Assault on Arkham and will see Batman take on the Joker and his plot to detonate a dirty bomb in Gotham City.

Unlike the games, though, Batman won't be a solo act in this mission, as he's joined by Task Force X, better known to comic book fans as the Suicide Squad.

Miyazaki Movies Get Mashed Up With Dragon Ball Z, Pokemon, Sailor Moon And More [Video]

Catbus Dragon Ball Z
College Humor

Hayao Miyazaki, the cartoonist behind Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind and director of films including Princess Mononoke, Ponyo, and Howl's Moving Castle, has been pretty outspoken about his feelings about the popular trends in anime. He's not a big fan.

But what if he was? Odds are the films he made at Studio Ghibli would look pretty doggone different. CollegeHumor has dug deep into that question and come up with some examples of how his movies might look different under the effects of some other... popular influences. Prepare for a little Dragon Ball Z, Pokémon, Sailor Moon and more.

Ask Chris #192: ‘Power Rangers RPM’ Is The Darkest Timeline

Ask Chris art by Erica Henderson

Q: What was so good about Power Rangers RPM? -- @ykarps

A: That's right, everyone: After deciding on a whim last year to sit down and watch every single episode of Power Rangers ever produced, all seven hundred and seventy-five (and counting), and last week, I finally did it when I made it through 2009's Power Rangers RPM. I'd already seen Samurai, and I'd been watching Megaforce as it aired, so that was it. And I wept, for there were no more worlds to conquer.

But while I was watching it, I came to the conclusion that as much as I like Samurai and Jungle Fury and Ninja Storm -- in which a trio of teens give up on hiding their Kiwi accents about six episodes in -- there's not even a contest about which series is the best. RPM wins that argument hands down... and I kind of hate to say that.

Best Art Ever (This Week): Zatanna, The Fifth Element, Uncle Scrooge, Ronin, Death and More

Untitled-1

 
We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

Everybody Goes Pog Wild In ‘Regular Show’ #12 [Preview]

Regular Show 12 Preview
Boom! Studios

If you're like most of us at ComicsAlliance, there's a good chance that you remember that fleeting year or so in the mid '90s when comic shops were overflowing with the heavily-decorated circular disks known as pogs, plus all of their prevalent slammer, mat and "pogtainer" accessories. Well, get stoked on a kind of resurgence next week as Regular Show #12 fills both physical and digital retailers with the flip-em-to-win-em items once again... only not quite the way you think. See how KC Green and artist Alison Strejlau have teamed to exploit your pogstalgia -- and, in many ways, warn a generation that hasn't experienced them of the wickendess of pogs -- with our first-look preview.

A Touching Cast Photo From The Justice League Movie That Never Was

Justice League Mortal Movie Cast George Miller

Greg Van Borssum, a stuntman on the upcoming Mad Max reboot Fury Road, posted a photo to his Facebook page last month that offers a previously unseen glimpse of the cast and crew of the never-made 2008 Justice League movie.

Justice League: Mortal was meant to film in 2008 under George Miller, co-writer and director of the Mad Max franchise, including Fury Road. Justice League: Mortal never began filming, possibly because of the Writers Guild Strike of 2007-2008, but the photo reveals that Miller at least got as far as bringing his cast together.

Funny ‘Avengers’ Manga Introduces Earth’s Mightiest Heroes To Japan

'Marvel Avengers' Manga by Fujiminosuke Yorozuya

On the off chance that you thought there was anywhere you could go to escape the presence of The Avengers now that they were the stars of a series of films that have taken in roughly 48 trillion dollars, don't fret: They are everywhere. Or, to be slightly more accurate, they're now in Japan, thanks to a series of comics designed to introduce Japanese children to Marvel's team of superheroes.

Created by Fujiminosuke Yorozuya as part of an effort to promote Marvel and Toie's new Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers anime, Marvel Avengers ran as a twelve-page one-shot in Monthly Korokoro Comic for kids, introducing Captain America, the Wasp, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and Spider-Man to younger readers in a lighthearted comedy.
