Thumbnail: The Fashion Illustrations of ‘Girl in Dior’

image

Annie Goetzinger's Girl in Dior is, unsurprisingly, a love letter to designer Christian Dior, both as a person and as a designer. The illustrations lovingly recreate many of his designs from the presentation of his first collection all the way up to the designer's death. The styles that Dior created changed women's fashion for the post-war era, taking women from more functional, simple clothing, back to more elaborate designs. Goetzinger's historical research is impeccable, but it's her art, and, more specifically, the way she illustrates clothing, that makes Girl in Dior so impressive.

Gallery: ‘Popeye Classic Comics’ Variant Covers Are Always Strong to the Finich

popeye-feat

IDW has made excellent, if limited, use of Popeye after they acquired the license for E.C. Segar's iconic comic strip character. They published the excellent 12-issue series featuring original material by Roger Langridge and a handful of other artists that managed to capture some of the raucous spirit of the original Segar comedy adventures. They published a very weird Mars Attacks Popeye one-shot crossover by Martin Powell and Terry Beatty. And, since 2012, they've been publishing Popeye Classic Comics, which reprints the comic book work of long-time Popeye cartoonist Bud Sagendorf.

While the content may be classic, the marketing has been decidedly modern. The series has often featured variant covers, a popular tactic for claiming rack space in comic book shops. Unlike most comics, however, Popeye Classic — a product of IDW's relationship with Yoe Books — rather exclusively features excellent, often oddball artwork from some unlikely artists.

Compare the ‘Avengers 2’ Characters to Their First Comic Book Appearance

Avengers 2 characters
Marvel/Shirts.com

The superheroes at the center of Avengers: Age of Ultron resonate so strongly with so many people because they’re so deeply entrenched in popular culture. Captain America, Iron Man and the Hulk were around for years before Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo were even born. These aren’t just characters – they’re icons. And while serious comic book nerds know how much Earth’s mightiest heroes have changed with the times, taking a look back at what the likes of Black Widow and Hawkeye and the Vision used to look like is both entertaining and (dare we say it?) educational.

Ty Templeton Returns After A Massive Heart Attack To Explain Daredevil

Ty00

So here's the bad news: On April 16, artist Ty Templeton suffered a massive heart attack followed by a stay in the hospital in critical condition that, as Templeton himself puts it, saw him die three times, and even necessitated his being put into a medically-induced coma.

The good news is that Templeton not only made it through the horrifying ordeal, but he's back at home recovering and is already back to work on comics, as evidenced by a new installment of his Bun Toons strip that's nominally based around a brief explanation of Daredevil, but is really more of an update on Templeton's own condition.

Adorable But Sad Animals Navigate A Lonely World: Jen Lee’s ‘Vacancy’ and ‘Thunderpaw’

featured

Nobrow has released cartoonist Jen Lee's comic Vacancy, and like her currently-running animated webcomic Thunderpaw: In The Ashes of Fire Mountain, it's about animals left behind. Also like Thunderpaw, Vacancy is adorable but sad, with masterful and compelling storytelling, although it lacks some of the surreal and truly impressive moments of the former. Both are worth a read, although for different reasons.
