FR_feat

ComicsAlliance senior editor Janelle Assellin has wanted to start her own publishing company for a long time. When she finally decided to pull the trigger at the end of 2014, she had no real idea just how much work it would take, and to make matters more challenging, she decided to do a Kickstarter as well! With so many people out there who want to do similar things, Janelle has decided to explain how it all happened for her, and to share what she's learned.

Female Heroes Lead Bestselling Marvel BOGO Titles In March On Comixology

msmarvelJAN150859-hed

In March, ComiXology had a buy one, get one free sale on Marvel titles, where you could literally buy any of the Marvel issues in their store. This morning they announced that, during that sale, seven out of the top ten comics sold were books with female heroes. Titles that did well include Thor, Silk, and Ms. Marvel. In fact, the only titles on the list that weren't led by a female hero were three Star Wars titles - Star Wars #1 and #2 and Darth Vader #1. The top ten list was pulled from thousands of comics sold during the sale.

daredevil-by-waid-v1

Back in February, digital book subscription service Scribd made the rather surprising announcement that it would start offering comics from publishers including Marvel, Valiant, IDW, Boom and others in its $8.99 per month subscription, making it a sort of Netflix for comics (as well as books).

Now, Scribd is promoting the actual Netflix's new Daredevil series by recommending some of the comics on its service that can best introduce readers to the character. They've got some pretty good ones. Check out what Scribd is suggesting as a primer after the jump.

Excitement Off The Charts: Marc Andreyko Talks ‘Wonder Woman ’77′

WW77_04_D_SFCover-feat

Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman TV show was an inspiration to a generation of superhero fans back in the late 1970s, and it was with great joy that we greeted the news of a Wonder Woman '77 comic from DC's digital division, following in the footsteps of Batman '66. Now that the series is a few chapters in, we caught up with writer Marc Andreyko to find out how the series came about and what role the show played in his own childhood.

We also have an exclusive preview of the next chapter, with art by Jason Badower, which takes readers to the cusp of an extraordinary revelation; there's more than one Wonder Woman in town.

Black Mask Studios Offers Tubecomics (They Are Not Comics in a Tube)

zTubecomic-sampleShot-iphone

Earlier this month, Black Mask Studios announced a new initiative to bring comics to potential fans who aren't necessarily going into comic shops. This new initiative is a products they call 'Tubecomics', which you can find, unsurprisingly, on YouTube, as well as the Black Mask Tubecomic site. With voice over and camera movement on many of the panels, they're not just videos of still comics. They're also not quite motion comics, not quite animation, not quite guided view... but they're a bit of a hybrid of all of the above. It's an interesting endeavor that's worth a closer look.

tpeye_10_big

Do you have burning questions for writer Brian K. Vaughan? Well, good news, because for most of the day today, he's taking over the Panel Syndicate Twitter account and answering people's questions. Just last week, Vaughan and artist Marcos Martin finished their 10-issue maxiseries The Private Eye that they offered under a "pay-as-you-like" model on the Panel Syndicate website. In addition to answering questions, Vaughan is talking about comics he likes, posting videos, and more. He promises no spoilers during his tweeting today, though, so if you haven't read the series yet, you can still check out the feed.

Meet the Swashbuckling, Smutty, Tough Pirate Women of ‘Dreadful Sirens’

dreadful sirens featured

Yesterday, Karla Pacheco and Steve LeCouilliard launched a brand new comic called Dreadful Sirens based on real female pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read, which their website promises will be updated weekly at DreadfulSirens.com. It is pretty darn NSFW (even the website before you get to the comics is NSFW) but also pretty great. Dreadful Sirens is a webcomic in that it is on the web, but you have a few options to view it, including reading or downloading through Gumroad and their pay-what-you-like option. This way you can get great, entertaining, apparently misandrist comics for a price you can afford!

Phil Hester Tackles a Different Ollie Queen in the ‘Flash: Season Zero’ Crossover with ‘Arrow’ [Interview/Preview]

FLS_SZERO_15_300-014_HD-feat

We've already seen Arrow and The Flash cross paths a few times on their respective TV shows; now they'll meet up again in the tie-in next week's installment of the DC Digital comic series The Flash: Season Zero, from writers Lauren Certo, Andrew Kreisberg, and Kai Wu, and artists Phil Hester, Eric Gapstur, and Kelsey Shannon.

This is not Hester's first time drawing a version of Ollie Queen, aka Arrow on the screen and Green Arrow in the DC comics universe. Hester and Ande Parks were the celebrated art team on Kevin Smith's Green Arrow run of the early 2000s. We spoke to Hester to learn what it was like to take on such a different take on such a familiar character, and DC provided us with an exclusive preview of the creative team's Arrow leaping into action.

Archie Is Doing A Digital Collection Of Stories About Wrestling, Confirming Our ‘Best Timeline’ Status

Archie00

Those of you who haven't been obsessively keeping track of which Archie Comics are available to buy at 3:00 AM might not be aware of this, but the publisher has been putting out pretty inexpensive digital collections for a while now that are all built around a certain theme. There's a bunch of them up, including one that features my beloved Elevenaire, but this week, they're topping them all with Archie & Friends: Wrestle Maniacs.

That's right, brother: A bunch of Archie comics about the King of Sports, professional wrestling. And, I suppose, that greco-roman stuff that they do in high schools and the Olympics, which, let's face it, is obviously the inferior version due to a lack of zombies, dragons, and steel chairs used as weapons.
