Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases for November 2 2016

bce113

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, “Which comic books should I be reading?” or, “I’m new to comics, what’s a good place to start?” The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.

Francesco Francavilla Looks Back On Ten Years In Comics [Interview]

Batman-Featured

Over the past 10 years, Francesco Francavilla emerged as one of the most unique and prolific artists of this generation, with a slew of credits at almost every major publisher and fans clamoring to see his gorgeous style on their favorite characters. Earlier this year, Mondo hosted a special gallery show celebrating his milestone. A frequent collaborator with the Austin art house, Francavilla will also be appearing at this weekend's MondoCon. ComicsAlliance caught up with Francavilla ahead of the event for a retrospective of his first decade in comics.

Made Of Pen And Ink: A Quick Primer On Betty Boop And Her World

boop_featured

Betty Boop #1, a new Dynamite comic from Roger Langridge and Gisèle Lagacé, brings an 86-year-old animated star to comics, and a whole world follows behind her. As a longtime fan, I'm excited not just to see Betty in a comic, but to see all her friends and co-stars. They're all products of Fleischer Studios, an animation house run by brothers Max and Dave Fleischer, which was also responsible for the original Popeye cartoons.

If you've picked up this comic only knowing Betty Boop from T-shirts and tattoos, you may be wondering who all these characters are and why everything seems a little weird. As an expert on this subject (which rarely comes up), I thought I'd provide a quick intro to Betty and her friends.

Dynamite Announces ‘Sweet Valley High’ Comics, Benjamin Percy On ‘James Bond,’ And More [NYCC 2016]

So here's the bad news: The sentence "Dynamite announces new James Bond, Bettie Page, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and Sweet Valley High comics" does not refer to one single series that's going to combine all of those properties into a single high-school themed alternate universe where Tarzan, 007, and the real-life queen of pin-up photography are all taking math class together and trying to figure out who to ask to the prom.

The good news, though, is that they're four separate announcements that all seem pretty interesting: Writer Benjamin Percy taking over James Bond, Bill Willingham returning to Dynamite with artist Cezar Rezak for the Burroughs-themed crossover The Greatest Adventure, a new line of Sweet Valley High graphic novels, and – for the first time since 1997, the return of Bettie Page to officially licensed comics.

Dynamite Announces Francesco Francavilla’s ‘The Spirit: The Corpse-Makers’

The Spirit: The Corpse-Makers

Ever since Dynamite picked up the license to Will Eisner's The Spirit, it has been doing some pretty interesting stuff. Matt Wagner and Dan Schkade's "Who Killed The Spirit?" told a compelling story that was, as you might expect from the title, focused on the main character's absence. Now, though, Dynamite is kicking off 2017 with an all-new five-issue series from Francesco Francavilla.

Cast Party: Who Should Star in a ‘Flash Gordon’ Movie? [Sci-Fi Week]

ElleCollins_CastParty

Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist.

To kick off Sci-Fi Week, I’m looking at a new spin on a classic: Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon. But to keep this version fresh and different from the classic 1980 film, I'm not adapting the original comic, but rather the 2014 Dynamite Comics series by Jeff Parker and Doc Shaner.
