DC Digital's Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman must be doing decent business, as the publisher announced a second digital Wonder Woman title at the Download This panel at New York Comic-Con on Sunday; Wonder Woman '77, inspired by the hit 1970s Wonder Woman TV show starring Lynda Carter. The series follows the digital-first format of the Batman '66 comic, which is based on the 1960s Batman TV show.
Written by Marc Andreyko and illustrated by various artists, Wonder Woman '77 will launch in December with a six weekly installments that will later be released in print. Further Wonder Woman '77 stories are expected to follow in the future.
If there's one problem that we as comics readers all share, it's that we just have too much money. Sure, we keep trying to give it to publishers and creators, but sometimes there just aren't enough comics to buy, and that's why we always need more great books out there to pick up. Fortunately, the good folks over at Comixology are doing their best to make that as easy as possible, and this week, those efforts are taking the form of the Image Comics "New Hits" Sale.
A ton of great new Image books like Southern Bastards, The Wicked + The Divine, Velvet, Burn the Orphanage and more have seen their first few issues dropped down to 99 cents each, and on top of that, there's a bundle of 20 first issues for just fifteen bucks.
For the most part, mainstream comics don’t care about fashion. But sometimes, something sneaks through and reminds us all of why this matters. Sensation Comics #7, illustrated by Marguerite Sauvage from a script by Sean E. Williams, is that rare, trembling shaft of light into the dank, Dragon Ball Z-print-button-downed basement that is the state of fashion in comics.
Back in July, ComiXology addressed one of the biggest questions people had with its digital comics service: Do customers actually own the issues they buy?
The company unviled a DRM-free backup feature, but only for a handful of publishers, including Image Comics, Dynamite Entertainment, and Top Shelf Productions, among others. This week, ComiXology announced a second wave of publishers that will offer DRM-free downloads -- and no, Marvel and DC still aren't part of the deal.
Since the spring, more and more comic publishers have offered up super-cheap collections of comics on Humble Bundle, for the benefit of charities including the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, the Hero Initiative, and Doctors Without Borders.
You can add Valiant Comics to that esteemed group. Starting Wednesday, the publisher has been offering up collections of its top titles, including Quantum & Woody, Unity, Harbinger, Bloodshot and more. Fans can name their price, help a charity, and get a whole bunch of great comics in the process.
According to a Valiant press release, the 24 graphic novels and comic collections offered up in the deal have a retail value of more than $420, making it the biggest comic offer in Humble Bundle history.
Those of you who pay attention to such things may have been wondering just what our former senior editor Caleb Goellner has been up to since he left ComicsAlliance earlier this year. Personally, I would've guessed that he'd spent the last few months swimming in a Scrooge McDuckian bin of Power Rangers and Ninja Turtles action figures, but that is not the case. It turns out that he's been working on a new comic, alongside writer Jim Gibbons, the Eisner-winning editor of Dark Horse Presents.
The book is called Birchsquatch, and it is quite possibly the greatest sasquatch-based sci-fi revenge mystery of autumn 2014, and it's available now on Gumroad as a pay-what-you-want download.
Chris Ware has tested a whole lot of different formats for his graphic novels, including massively over-sized books, joke books, and craft sets. Now, he's sort of going back to the early roots of comics, publishing a weekly strip on the website of British newspaper The Guardian, titled 'The Last Saturday'.
The first installment of the strip was published Saturday, Sept. 13, with a brief introduction. The apparent premise is that the comic will follow the lives of six characters, all from the town of Sandy Port, Michigan, and presumably all riddled with self-deprecation and insecurity. It is a Ware work, after all.
The new superhero comic from Autism at Face Value, an advocacy group aimed at promoting autism awareness, is really making a splash.
Face Value Comics, the first issue of which is currently available in comic shops, has completely sold out, according to a blog post from the organization. Autism at Face Value attributes much of the comic's success to a segment on NBC Nightly News that highlighted the comic and its protagonist, Michael, who creators Dave Kot, Angela Kot, and Sky Owens tout as comics' first-ever autistic superhero.
One of the best things about digital comics is that you can read them online pretty much anywhere, but sometimes, every now and then, you want to read them in print. Whether it's the extra features that inevitably come with a printed collection, the texture of paper or just the comforting reminder that physical objects exist and you are therefore not alone and isolated in a formless void, printed webcomics have a lot to offer today's discerning reader, and Dark Horse is stepping up to give you three of the most exciting collections of the year.
Set for release next spring, Eisner winning digital comic Bandette and the webcomic Polar: Eye For An Eye are returning to Dark Horse for the book trade customers, but the third, Murder Book is a newcomer, and it looks awesome.
Public-safety media is taking a step away from filmstrips and pamphlets toward something much cooler: comic books. In Oregon, anyway.
The Oregon Office of Emergency Management has partnered with Milwaukee, Oregon-based Dark Horse Comics to release Without Warning, a free, 12-page comic all about earthquake safety. It's not just a bunch of safety tips with pictures, either. Writers Jeremy Barlow and Althea Rizzo and artist David Hahn have developed a real story about a girl trying to get back to her family in the aftermath of a disaster.
