You may recall a few years back, when Deadpool director Tim Miller released a proof-of-concept video for an R-rated CG-animated adaptation of Eric Powell’s beloved graphic novel The Goon. You may have also forgotten about it in the years since, but now that Miller delivered a record-breaking box office hit with another R-rated comic book adaptation, it looks like there’s been renewed interest in The Goon. While nothing is officially moving forward just yet, Miller seems pretty optimistic about its chances.

The World’s Greatest Paranormal Anniversary: A Tribute to Hellboy

hellboy-feat

On this day in 1994, the World's Greatest Paranormal Investigator took the stage in his own solo series for the first time in the pages of the Hellboy: Seed of Destruction mini-series. When this story about a big red guy, a fish man, and a woman with a fire in her eyes investigating a spooky old house with a frog problem first launched, few readers could have guessed that it would lead to a host of titles, one of the most beautifully fleshed out universes in comics, and a story that spans the history of the world, from its creation to its destruction to its re-creation once again. a cycle of life and death.

But writer, artist, and creator Mike Mignola knew. Even looking back on this first issue over twenty years later, you can see that the pieces were there from day one.

Matt and Sharlene Kindt Go Below the Surface of ‘Dept H’ at Dark Horse [Interview]

depth-feat

Following the end of his widely acclaimed Dark Horse series Mind MGMT, creator Matt Kindt decided to try something completely different for his next project --- a claustrophobic thriller set in 'real time'. Each issue of the upcoming Dept H is set during a 24-hour period in an underwater science lab that is slowly flooding. As the series moves on, time quickly runs out for the people inside as they try to work out who sabotaged the base --- and try to stay alive.

A spy series that starts as a murder mystery and quickly tightens into a tense race against time, the series sees Matt Kindt joined by his wife, watercolor artist Sharlene Kindt, on colors. Having worked on sections of MIND MGMT, this new series marks her first ongoing comics work for a major publisher. To explore the depths of Dept H further, ComicsAlliance spoke to both Matt and Sharlene Kindt about their work. We also have an exclusive reveal of their cover for issue #3.

BestComics_0316

Joe’s Got Zombie Trouble In ‘Joe Golem’ #5 [Preview]

Joe Golem #5

Here's the problem with living in a place called "The Drowning City." Actually, strike that --- you can probably guess most, if not all of the problems with living there just from the name. Like, say, the fact that the city itself is drowning, which means that there are a whole lot of citizens who are also being dropped into a watery grave. But, on the bright side, I imagine that means there are a whole lot of cheap apartments you can check out if you bring your own SCUBA equipment.

Really, though, there's a much bigger problem facing Joe Golem in the pages of Joe Golem #5, the last issue of the miniseries from Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden and Patric Reynolds that ties into their illustrated novel: Zombies. Lots and lots of waterlogged zombies that are dead set (ha) on taking out the living. Check out a preview!
