Nathan Fox Makes A Compelling Case For A Golf Comic, Of All Things

NathanFoxMasters

When I go visit my parents at their house, I inevitably end up watching some TV with my dad, and it's almost always tuned to his favorite channel: The Golf Channel. It presents an... interesting portrait of the sport, one that's focused on hitting balls out of impossible spots on riverbanks, commentators wearing matching polo shirts, the amount of titanium in clubs (at least, according to ads) and grand-prize SUVs that somehow magically sit atop water hazards.

It's enough to make someone who only occasionally dips into the world of golf forget that the sport is mostly played on stunningly gorgeous, well-manicured courses, and that the act of being an in-person spectator or player can be a strange sort of communion with nature. Artist Nathan Fox, known for his work on Dark Horse Comics' Pigeons from Hell, his covers for Vertigo's FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics, and one widely shared Wonder Woman redesign, managed to capture that sense wonderfully in some recent commissions of the Masters tournament for Golf Digest.

Gen Con Threatens to Leave Indiana if Anti-Gay Bill Becomes Law

gencon-logo

The past few years have been an interesting time for fan conventions, as organizers have to confront social issues that they may not have considered in years past. Conventions including Heroes Con and Emerald City Comic Con have taken a head-on approach to harassment and gender discrimination. DragonCon wisely cut ties with a founder in the wake of a child molestatiion case. And the list goes on.

But many of those have been cases of conventions dealing with direct internal challenges. This week, Gen Con, the largest tabletop gaming convention in North America, took the fight to the state government of Indiana, threatening to leave the Hoosier State if Gov. Mick Pence signs into law a bill that would facilitate discrimination against gay people.

The Movie Avengers Will Live Forever in This Singapore Condo (Or At Least Until They Redecorate)

AvengersCondo1

One of the harsh realities of life is that all things must end, even the current spate of Marvel Studios films. One day, the actors will move on (Robert Downey Jr. already has one foot out the door) and the movie Avengers roster of the early-to-mid 2010s will morph into something else.

But what if you didn't want them to? What if your fandom reached such great heights that you wished that the movie Avengers of today could be with you forever, and you could immortalize them in the walls, bookcases, kitchen cabinets and bed frames of your home Someone in Singapore apparently did just that, with the help of Absolook Interior Designs. For that one fan, it will be 2012 to 2015 for a lifetime (or until she or he trades out the decor for The Inhumans or Justice League 2 in 2019).

Dangerous Art: Jeff Lemire on ‘Bloodshot: Reborn,’ Comics With a Point of View, and His Career

bloodshot featured

In his decade-plus as a comics writer and artist, Jeff Lemire has worn a lot of different hats: Indie darling, trailblazing Vertigo comics creator, DC Comics' go-to superhero writer.

Now, he's found something like a middle road. He's got a superhero book with an indie flair (Hawkeye), a creator-owned book with big sci-fi ambitions (Descender) and a new Valiant Comics series unlike anything he's ever done before: Bloodshot: Reborn, which is such a vastly new take on the character that plot details are hard to come by.

We talked with Lemire about his somewhat daring take on Valiant's most violent character, and also posed some questions about his varied career.

Ridiculous, but Grounded: Matt Kindt Talks ‘Ninjak’ and ‘Divinity’ [Interview]

kindt-ninjak-divinity-hed

On the surface, Valiant's Ninjak is an almost silly fantasy character: He's a hyper-capable ninja with the word "ninja" in his name. He's also a British spy. He lives in a castle.

The first issue of the new Ninjak series by writer Matt Kindt and artists Clay Mann and Butch Guice certainly embraces those preteen wish-fulfillment elements, but adds some surprising depth, too, with character flashbacks and quieter moments that dig deep into who this updated version of Colin King really is.

We sat down with Kindt to talk about how he struck a balance between the silly and the serious in the new series, as well as the trippy sci-fi action of Divinity, his new Valiant series with artist Trevor Hairsine, which debuted earlier this month.
