Paid to Draw: Lissa Treiman Talks ‘Giant Days’ and Disney Animation

featured

Animator and artist Lissa Treiman is taking on her first regular comics work, after working at Disney Animation on movies like Wreck-It Ralph and Big Hero 6. She's teamed up with cartoonist John Allison to bring his webcomic Giant Days to the print comics world with Boom Studios. Treiman's style is charming and dynamic, as befits someone who works in animation, and the first issue of Giant Days is a lot of fun. ComicsAlliance spoke with Treiman about animation, storytelling, comics, and how she balances all of the above!

Best Art Ever (This Week): Captain Marvel, Carrie Kelly, Sailor Moon, Hellboy, Star Trek TNG and More

Untitled-1

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

Wonderful World of Whipsnarl: In Conversation With the Creators of ‘Beast Wagon’

Whipsnarl Visitor Map

When a comics Kickstarter campaign is a success in less than 24 hours, and the launch party and gallery exhibition attracts creators from all over the country, it’s clear that something special is about to happen. Beast Wagon, described by its creators as “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest with talking animals,” is the work of British Comic Award nominee Owen Michael Jones (Raygun Roads, Reel Love) and illustrator and comics newcomer John Pearson, and it could well be be the UK comic of the year.

A black comedy about madness overtaking the animals --- and humans --- in a zoo, Beast Wagon is a stunningly beautiful work. ComicsAlliance sat down with the two young punk creators to find out where this madness came from, and just how far the contagion is going to spread…

Archie0100

As you may have heard, Archie is relaunching their flagship title in July, bringing an end to what has been the longest continuously published American comic that has never been rebooted, after 666 issues. In addition to a new direction from Mark Waid and Fiona Staples, the relaunch is getting a whole slew of variant covers focusing on the revamped design for everyone's favorite two-timing redheaded high schooler, from artists like J. Scott Campbell, Dean Haspiel, and more.

Now we've got seven of those variant covers to reveal, bringing the total number of Archie #1 variants to approximately one hundred million (and all of them awesome). Check them out below, from Tania Del Rio, Genevieve F.T., legendary Superman and Shazam artist Jerry Ordway, and more!

gennis_banner

Hire This Woman is a recurring feature on ComicsAlliance that shines a spotlight on female comics creators, whether they're relative newcomers or experienced pros who are ready to break out. In an overwhelmingly male business, we want to draw your attention to these creators --- and to raise their profile with editors and industry gatekeepers.

Cartoonist and art professor Emi Gennis often self-publishes her work, including the minicomic Spaz!, and has also published work on The Nib. Her focus is primarily nonfiction as told through comics, and she writes, draws, colors, and letters her own work.

Alex de Campi and Carla Speed McNeil Show ‘No Mercy’ in New Image Series [Interview]

NM01_COVER_VAR

Writer Alex de Campi and artist Carla Speed McNeil have teamed up to create the Image book No Mercy, about a group of teenagers from the U.S. who go to Central America on a school trip and things go horribly, horribly wrong.

The story is brutal and unforgiving, but also at times touching and funny. With lots of psychological terror, a diverse cast, and a pair of great creators at the wheel, the book sounds right up our alley, so we spoke with de Campi and McNeil to find out what readers can expect from No Mercy.

Babs Tarr And Joy Ang Cover ‘Gotham Academy #6′ And ‘Gotham Academy: Endgame’

GA00

At this point, I'm not sure how Gotham Academy could get better. I mean, it's already exactly what I have always wanted in my life but never knew I could get, a teen drama with mysteries and secret passages, where Batman occasionally shows up and obscure villains from the TV show are running the library. That's a level of perfection that I could've only dreamt of a year ago.

But if I had to make a suggestion for how it might be better, I'd probably suggest getting Babs Tarr, the ComicsAlliance-favorite artist of Batgirl, to do a cover, or maybe getting Adventure Time designer Joy Ang to take a crack at the characters, or maybe have everyone spend an issue talking about how terrifying the Joker is. These are all things that are happening. We are living in a magical time.

‘I’m Drawing Archie Fighting A Freakin’ Predator’: Fernando Ruiz Talks ‘Archie Vs Predator’

AVP00

Even though it was announced months ago, I'm still having a hard time believing that we live in a magical world where Alex de Campi and Fernando Ruiz's Archie Vs Predator is a real thing that is happening. Even in a time when the company's most critically successful book is a moody supernatural horror story where the entire cast is about two seconds away from being murdered by zombies, Archie Vs Predator still seems like a beautiful, beautiful dream.

That's why, in order to confirm that this is in fact happening, I spoke to Ruiz about what it's like to send the Predator to Riverdale, and how it compares to drawing Betty riding a dragon.
