IDW To Publish Hardcover ‘Parker’ Novels Illustrated by Darwyn Cooke

Parker Dress Cooke

Darwyn Cooke just can't get enough of Richard Stark's Parker.

The writer/artist has already adapted four (five, if you consider that one adaptation, The Outfit, is a combination of two) of the novels author Donald Westlake wrote under the name Richard Stark. Now, Cooke is teaming up with IDW to illustrate new, deluxe editions of those novels starting in June with the first in the series, The Hunter. Attendees at the Toronto Comics and Art Festival next week will have the opportunity to grab The Hunter a bit early, in the form of a super-fancy limited edition.

Untitled-2

Marvel went to C2E2 armed with a plethora of publishing announcements for the Chicago crowd, focusing largely on special projects like miniseries and some pretty cool-sounding Original Sin tie-ins, but with a couple auspicious new series as well. In an inspired bit of comic book casting, Our Love Is Real and Avengers A.I. writer Sam Humphries will write the The Legendary Star-Lord, a new series drawn by Paco Medina starring the Guardians of the Galaxy leader. In similarly agreeable news, fan favorite X-Men leader Storm will star in a new ongoing series, this one courtesy of Greg Pak and Victor Ibanez.

The Cosplay of C2E2 2014

Untitled-1

As you know from our weekly Best Cosplay Ever feature, we’re big fans of cosplay at ComicsAlliance. The comics, sci-fi, gaming and fantasy communities’ talents for homemade disguises, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics were definitely on display last weekend at C2E2, and you’d better believe we were on hand to document as much as we can.

Also known as the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo, C2E2 has come and gone, but memories of its plentiful colorful cosplayers needn’t only live on in your hearts. We’ve assembled a gallery of the show’s costumed fans we met at Chicago's McCormick Place convention facility.

Photos from the Oni Press/Comics Alliance Party at Emerald City Comicon 2014

Untitled-1

In case you missed the flyer we were spamming for two weeks before the event, ComicsAlliance teamed up with Oni Press and Emerald City Comicon for an epic crossover event that took the form of a convention kickoff party last Thursday in Seattle. The affair was very well attended, with comics pros, bloggers and readers rolling in throughout the night to party/laugh/smile/chill/drink. The party was DJ'd by our own Senior Editor Andy Khouri, whose playlist was peppered with Oni-related works from the Scott Pilgrim film soundtrack, 8-bit versions of Daft Punk and even a track performed by Bryan Lee O'Malley himself (you can see the full setlist here).

The event was photographed by local shooter, comics reader and notoriously friendly human being Ed Peterson with John Kieltyka. The sense of fun and friendship conveyed by their photos very accurately document the overall vibe of ECCC, and his work helped set the tone for one of our favorite shows in recent memory.

Gabriel Hardman’s Convention Portrait Project Makes ECCC 2014 Look All Kinds Of Classy [Art]

Convention portraits by Gabriel Hardman

A lot of artists hit conventions with a specific plan in mind for sketches, whether it's only drawing their signature character or sticking to a particular theme. Last weekend at Emerald City Comicon 2014, however, Gabriel Hardman took on a pretty fascinating project that I don't think I've seen anyone do before. In addition to his usual (and fantastic) convention sketches, Hardman launched the Convention Portrait Project, where he drew con-goers to get a little practice drawing from life.
