Colinet And Charretier Announce ‘The Infinite Loop Volume 2: Nothing But The Truth’ [Exclusive Interview]

The Infinite Loop vol. 2, IDW

Originally released in 2015, Pierrick Colinet and Elsa Charretier's The Infinite Loop is one of those amazing stories that uses a wild sci-fi premise to cut straight to the humanity of its characters. It centers on Teddy, a time traveler responsible for erasing anomalies that result form other time travelers meddling with history, and she's very good at her job. When she discovers a "human-shaped anomaly" in the form of a beautiful woman, though, she begins to question whether a timestream without a person she's falling in love with is one that's worth saving.

Now, after its original time-bending climax, the story is returning in The Infinite Loop Vol. 2: Nothing But The Truth, with artist Daniele DiNicuolo joining Charretier and Colinet to tell the next chapter of Teddy and Ano's story. To find out more, we spoke with them about the changing political landscape of the past two years and the difficulties of thinking of stories as, well, infinite loops.

Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases for March 29 2017

bce329

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, “Which comic books should I be reading?” or, “I’m new to comics, what’s a good place to start?” The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.

Action And Drama Abound In ‘MASK: Mobile Armored Strike Kommand’ #4 [Preview]

There's nothing wrong with being a property that was designed to sell toys in the 1980s. Plenty of today's beloved properties started out that way, especially the ones being published by IDW. But MASK: Mobile Armored Strike Kommand has always felt almost comically toyetic to me: Good and evil teams who wear special helmets that give them powers and ride in vehicles that transform into other vehicles. However, as we see in this preview from MASK #4, writer Brandon Easton and artist Tony Vargas have found the key to rising above that problem and making their characters feel like people: family melodrama.

The Mutanimals, that teams of misfit mutants from the TMNT animated universe is getting a new three-issue miniseries from writer Caleb Goellner and artist Chad Thomas, but they're not quite feeling themselves, it seems. That's because Baxter Stockman – the TMNT world's resident evil scientist – has turned them into robots!

To mark the book's announcement, we had a quick chat with Goellner and Thomas about the Mutanimals, the differences between mutants and robots, and why Dr. Stockman would think this is a good idea.

The Mad Hatter Sets His Sights (And His Hats) On New York City In ‘Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures’ #5 [Preview]

Batman/TMNT Adventures #5, IDW and DC

I don't want to be an armchair editor here or anything, but you'd think that if you're doing a story where Batman crosses the dimensional barrier from Gotham City to hang out in New York --- specifically the NYC that's home to the animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles --- you'd have to take a page or two for him to ask questions, right? "Where are all the abandoned warehouses," he asks, scowling, "And why isn't there a single Playing Card And Chemical Factory on the entire island of Manhattan? And why are your sewers so... livable?!"

Unnaturally Large And Massively Dangerous: The Best Giant Monster Covers Ever

monster_featured

Some monsters are surprisingly small, no bigger than a person or smaller still. They intimidate psychologically or with supernatural powers, not with size and strength. But then there are monsters that are big. Giant monsters are easy to understand. They are to humans what we are to ants, and we all know all too well how many ants we've stepped on.

With Monsters Unleashed going on at Marvel, and Kong: Skull Island currently in theaters, this feels like a great time to pay tribute to the various giant beasts and kaiju that have graced the covers of comic books for about as long as comics have existed.
