cyberforce-feat

Writer/artist Marc Silvestri is taking his long-running series Cyber Force full cyber.

The latest two trade paperbacks of the series --- which include the first ten issues of the fourth volume, which kicked off in 2012 --- have been digitally reformatted for the LINE Webtoon platform, and are available now.

‘Raising Dion’ Comic Book Trailer is a Mini-Movie All Of Its Own

hqdefault6

Making trailers for comic books has become fairly common practice over the past few years, but writer/director Dennis Liu and artist Jason Piperberg are taking the art to a whole new level with their video promoting their new, self-published series Raising Dion.

The series bills itself as "a superhero story from a parent's point of view," and focuses on a single mom named Nicole and her 7-year-old son, Dion, who has superpowers. A lot of superpowers.

Archie President Reveals Next Two ‘Archie’ Artists: Annie Wu and Veronica Fish

archie4-feat

Getting Fiona Staples to be the artist on the new Archie series was quite a coup for the publisher, but there's a price that comes with hiring superstar artists: They don't hang around forever. Staples will be exiting the book after the third issue.

That's the bad news, according Archie Comics President Mike Pellerito. Here's the good news: The publisher already has the next two artists lined up, and they're both very exciting in their own right: First, Annie Wu (Hawkeye, Black Canary) will step up for issue #4, and after that, Veronica Fish, who is the artist behind the promo image for the upcoming CW series Riverdale, will take over through the sixth issue.

I Just Love the World-Building: Jeff Lemire Discusses His Sci-Fi Opus ‘Descender’

descender_cover08-feat

In his career in comics, Jeff Lemire hasn't shied away from building worlds. Essex County, Sweet Tooth, Trillium, and even his work at Valiant Comics have all presented readers with fully realized, fleshed-out settings. But Descender, Lemire's Image Comics science fiction series with painted art by Dustin Nguyen, may be his most ambitious project.
The series focuses on a child-like robot in a war-torn galaxy full of mistrust and betrayal. It wrapped up its first six-issue arc last week, so we talked to Lemire about his plans for the next arc, the mystery behind the destructive force known as the Harvesters, and his influences. We also touched on his new series, Plutona, which steers back to the superhero genre.

‘Southern Bastards’ #10 Rejected From Apple Store, Likely Over Sex Scene

south-bast-10-feat

Apple has rejected issue #10 of Jason Aaron and Jason Latour's Image Comics series Southern Bastards from its store, and odds are it isn't because of Latour's widely shared essay about the Confederate flag in its back matter.

The likely reason is an explicit sex scene that opens the issue. In virtually every previous case of Apple rejecting specific issues of comics, it's been over sexual content, not language or violence. (The one possible exception is the Johnny Ryan library of comics. It's hard to know where the offense was there.)

In its first year, Magnetic Press made quite a dent, earning two Eisner nominations for Tony Sandoval’s Doomboy and Dave Dorman’s Wasted Lands Omnibus. Magnetic is heading into its second year with some big followup plans. The publisher announced Wednesday that it will launch 10 new titles --- a mix of original graphic novels, reprint material and what looks to be monthly comics, though Magnetic hasn't made entirely clear what the formats for each book will be.

Nostalgia Overload: ‘Star Wars’ Movies Get Little Golden Book Adaptations

sw-lgb-feat

Odds are you enjoy, or are at least familiar with, the Star Wars series of films. And there's a good chance you read Little Golden Books (or had them read to you) when you were a youngster. You know the ones: The colorfully illustrated books with a signature golden spin, that retell classic stories.

Since you almost definitely know both of those things, someone put them together, and the final presentation is pretty cool. That's right: The classic (and also the newer) Star Wars films are being adapted into Little Golden Books so even the smallest of kids can get up to speed with Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, Darth Vader and the Death Star.
