CA_BestComics_0812

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.

No, ‘The Walking Dead’ Will Probably Never Get Around to Winter Snow

The Walking Dead Season 6 Winter Snow
AMC

Anyone who enjoys charting the course between AMC’s Walking Dead and its comic iteration can’t help noticing a few aesthetic differences, as the live-action series tends to pour out sweat in blistering heat from every direction. The comics have more evenly depicted walkers through multiple climates, but when it comes to snow, showrunner Scott Gimple has an intriguing response.

Coming Out Stronger: Steve Orlando Talks Respect, Sexuality, and Violence in ‘Virgil’

virgil-feat

Virgil is a project long in the making. The creative team of Steve Orlando, J.D. Faith, Chris Beckett, and Tom Mauer first launched the story in August 2013 as a "queersploitation" graphic novel publicly funded by Kickstarter. At Image Expo in July, Image announced that the book would join its upcoming line-up and receive a wider distribution, which was great news for the team’s fans.

The graphic novel is set in Kingston, Jamaica --- a country where anti-gay violence is unfortunately prevalent --- and follows the story of Virgil, a police officer on a mission of violent revenge after his boyfriend is kidnapped. ComicsAlliance sat down with writer Steve Orlando to talk about queersploitation, inspiration, and representation.

Lost in Transition: ‘Rat Queens Special #1: Braga’

braga-feat

Hi, I’m Charlotte Finn. I’m a lifelong comics fan and, last year, I admitted to myself that I am transgender.

Coming out as transgender means reassessing a lot about your life, your place in the world, and what that world's been telling you about yourself before you even realized who you really were. In this occasional series, I’m going to be applying that reassessment to comics that feature people like me, or close to being like me, and look them over with a fresh set of eyes, starting with Rat Queens Special #1: Braga, by Kurtis J. Wiebe and Tess Fowler.

‘The Walking Dead’s New Big Bad Will Arrive in Season 6 … Or 7, They’re Not Sure

The Walking Dead Season 6 7 Negan Jesus
AMC

The Walking Dead got as much mileage out of its first big bad as humanly possible (even then keeping him around for the occasional hallucination), but many wonder when the infamous “Negan” might swing his trusty bat, now that we’ve established Alexandria. Good news! The Walking Dead may yet introduce Negan (and others) in Season 6 … or maybe 7. Hey, even they don’t know.
