The ‘Wayward’ Creative Team Take Us Behind the Scenes of their Ambitious Five Issue Panoramic Cover

wayword-feat

Wayward, the Image ongoing series about a young girl discovering the supernatural underworld of modern-day Japan, kicks off its second arc today with issue #6. The cover for the issue is the first of five that link together to create a single extraordinary panoramic view of some of the series' characters and settings, transitioning from sunset in a junkyard to late night on the streets of Tokyo.

The interlinking covers are an impressive achievement, so to mark the start of the new arc --- and the release today of the first arc in trade paperback --- the creative team of writer Jim Zub, artist Steve Cummings, and colorist Tamra Bonvillain, take us behind the scenes of the creation of their panorama, from conception to completion!

_supercostumes18

We're into the last days of our poll series, so if you have any last minute nominations that absolutely, positively, must be included in the poll for it to have any legitimacy at all, you can add your suggestions in the comments. In the meantime, today we're looking at the classic Spider-Man costume, and the outfits worn by a few of his peers. No, not Iceman and Firestar, but the other big name street-level heroes of the Marvel Universe.

The Great Super-Costume Poll: Wolverine Yellow/Wolverine Brown

supercostume17

Today we're inviting you to vote on one of the most contentious schisms in all of comics costume design history; yellow and blue Wolverine, or brown and tan Wolverine? Which is the greatest? And to round out today's selection, we have a selection of similarly angry chaps from the DC universe(s); Lobo, Midnighter and Orion. Because being good at fighting doesn't mean you're bad at dressing.

The Great Super-Costume Poll: Iron Men

supercostume16

Today we're voting on one of the best-known costumes in superhero comics, because in this case the clothes really do make the (iron) man. Tony Stark and his heirs and imitators may put function first, but that doesn't mean they don't look have to look good too. So let's assess some of the best-known and most influential of more than 50 different Iron Man armors!

The Great Super-Costume Poll: The 2000s Called…

supercostumes15

This week we’ve been looking at some quintessential costume designs decade-by-decade --- so inevitably we're finishing out the week with the 2000s. Today's polls may feature five relatively recent designs, but many of them pay tribute to characters and costumes that came before, from Superman to Martian Manhunter. So do these looks mark the pinnacle of costume design, or contemporary fashion faux pas?

The Great Super-Costume Poll: The 1990s Called…

supercostumes14

Costume design is one of the great strengths of the superhero genre, a way to establish distinctive visual shorthand for a character and reveal key details about concept, purpose, and personality. But which is the best superhero costume of all time? This month, we're asking you to decide, by voting up your favorites and voting down the rest. When we have your votes, we'll compile a list of the greatest super-costumes of all time.

This week we're looking at some quintessential costume designs decade-by-decade. Today it's five costumes from the 1990s, the era of the Image artist, the bad girl, big knives, big guns, big shoulder pads, leather jackets and lots and lots of pockets. We've picked out just a few costumes to represent some of these trends.

The Age Old Story Of Princess Vs. Giant Bee Is Told Again In Pak, Coulton And Miyazawa’s ‘Princess Who Saved Herself’ [Preview]

Princess00

Last week, we interviewed Greg Pak and Jonathan Coulton about their new Kickstarter with artist Takeshi Miyazawa. A spin-off of sorts of their 2013 campaign for Code Monkey Save World, this one was meant to bring a children's book adaptation of Coulton's The Princess Who Saved Herself into print.

If you remember how that original campaign ended with them reaching almost ten times their original goal --- or if you remember that Coulton is one of the most successful independent musicians around thanks to his extremely loyal fan-base --- it won't surprise you to learn that the campaign already soared $45,000 past its initial goal in its first week; but there's another reason that people are jumping on. The book is already done, and as the eight-page preview we've got below shows, it looks awesome.

But it wasn't all disco collars all the time; the era produced some great costumes as well. And maybe some of them even had disco collars. Right? Right?

Marvel and Icon Comic Book Releases for June 2015 [Solicitations]

June Marvel Comic Releases
Marvel Comics

Courtesy of Marvel, ComicsAlliance brings you an advance look at new periodical comic books, collected editions and graphic novels going on sale in June 2015 (and in some cases beyond) from the publisher’s mainline Marvel Universe titles, its licensed properties, and the creator-owned label Icon.

June is going to open the floodgates for some unusual but potentially awesome comic reading thanks to Marvel's continuing Secret Wars line-wide overhaul. After the masses are done watching Avengers: Age of Ultron, we'll be able to see the same robotic army take on the legions of Marvel's undead in Age of Ultron Vs. Marvel Zombies #1, which could be the series' best crossover since Marvel Zombies vs. The Army of Darkness. Love could be in the air between Peter Quill and Shadowcat in Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde #1, but we have a feeling there's some kind of trickery going on. Stephen King fans will be able to see his magnum opus work continue in Dark Tower: The Drawing of the Three --- House of Cards #4, where we'll watch Roland Deschain and Eddie Dean continue to deal with The Prisoner.
