red-team---top

Some people deserve to die. They're so vile or anti-life that leaving them alive would only result in misery for everyone they meet. At the same time, is it right to kill them? In Red Team, Garth Ennis and Craig Cermak are exploring this conundru

‘The Boondocks’ Creator Kickstarts Uncle Ruckus Film Based On TV’s Funniest Racist

ruckus-lede

Uncle Ruckus -- no relation -- is one of the funniest parts of Aaron McGruder's The Boondocks cartoon. He's the ultimate black white supremacist, as eager to appease every caucasian he ever met as he is to denigrate any non-white who steps within an eighty-eight mile radius of him. He's thrown a brick at Martin Luther King

I really dig behind-the-scenes stuff and process books for comics and cartoons. It's not that I want to learn how to make my own so much as I enjoy seeing how things are put together. It can lead to a deeper appreciation of the work in question, which is always cool

2000-ad---top

Let me be the first to apologize to you, on behalf of the entire comics press. We screwed up. We were too focused on the wrong events in 2012.

Not all of us -- a few of

moto-hagio---heart-of-thomas---big

Moto Hagio's Heart of Thomas, recently translated and released by Fantagraphics, is my first proper introduction to the shounen-ai, or "boy's love," genre of manga. I have friends who are into yaoi and boy's love, and they have been remarkably generous with their time, knowledge, and gag gifts of yaoi versions of comics I like, but it isn't quite my thing. I generally like comics

Atmosphere, Comedy, and Art: Breaking Down Mignola’s ‘Hellboy In Hell’ #1

mike-mignola---hellboy-in-hell---boom

Pulling apart a good comic is like trying to figure out the secret ingredients in a great dish. You have to go on taste and feel alone. The dish's sharp bite could be basil or pepper, and the juicy taste could be thanks to primo meat or a long-term brine

I like Kickstarter a lot. It's an efficient way to directly connect with artists while also making sure that a project that interests you gets funded. There are still a few hitches that need to be worked out, but my experience with Kickstarter has been largely positive. I've backed ele

Let David Hine and Doug Braithwaite’s ‘Storm Dogs’ Take You For A Ride

The factors that make a comic appealing are an entirely subjective and strange thing. Sometimes the thrill of the unknown is what does it, and at other times, it's seeing something familiar performed in a new or particularly efficient way
