With Should I Be Reading… ?, ComicsAlliance hopes to offer you a guide to some of the best original ongoing comics being published today.
Black Magick is a beautiful and haunting Image series by Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott, about the occult, witch hunters, detectives, and the darkness biding its time just below the surface of the mundane world.
Chikara Pro Wrestling is wrestling for people that think they might not like wrestling. It’s essentially a fast-paced, high-action stunt show with plenty of drama, comedy and excitement, and it's essentially the closest thing you’ll get to seeing superheroes in real life. I love Chikara so much that I've just spent three days watching the huge King of Trios tournament alongside other ComicsAlliance staffers!.
If you love Chikara or the art of lucha libre in general, there’s a wealth of comics out there for you. Earlier this year, I recommended five comics for fans of WrestleMania, but this week I’ve chosen five comics with a decidedly lucha twist that are perfect for fans of Chikara Pro Wrestling. Love that? Try this!
In the days before the Flood, the world was full of violence. Welcome to The Goddamned, an Image series by the Scalped writer/artist team of Jason Aaron and R. M. Guéra, that explores a world so grim that God saw no option but to destroy it.
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.
Thought Bubble, the yearly convention that takes place in Leeds, is one of England's most vibrant and exciting conventions with a dedicated focus on comics above all else, from the top tier of mainstream comics to the scrappy underdogs of the UK's thriving small press scene.
Every year, Thought Bubble has released an anthology through Image Comics that features the work of guests in attendance, but this year the convention is collecting previous anthologies into one place, with proceeds going to Barnardo's Charity.
Ever since Saga set a new standard for indie comics success in 2012, there's been an explosion of American sci-fi comics, many of them from Saga publisher Image Comics. Of these, one of the biggest standouts is Southern Cross, which has created a compelling, dense world with stunning visuals and gripping mysteries in just its first six issues.
Everyone loves stories, but if there's one thing comics do perhaps better than any other medium, it's stories about stories. Whether it's Sandman, Fables or The Unwritten, there's something about that meta-textual hook that works so well in the medium.
One Week In The Library is a new original graphic novella from W. Maxwell Prince and John Amor that, through a variety of styles, tells seven stories across seven days, and Image Comics has provided us with a preview.
Morning Glories is a science fiction teenage drama comic from writer Nick Spencer and artist Joe Eisma, published by Image. Starting in 2010, this series has fifty issues to its name, with another twenty or so to come. Morning Glories deals with teenagers attending a prep school who have to deal with a monster in the basement, secret twins, time-travel, cryptic messages, homicidal teachers, backstabbing classmates, and one of the most mind-bending, confusing, and amazing stories in comics today.
Everything old is all-new again in comics, so it's about time that Rob Liefeld's most iconic creator-owned work Youngblood got another day in the sun. Next year, The Rob is bringing Youngblood back to comics with a new ongoing series at Image, alongside co-writer Chad Bowers and artist Jim Towe, whom Liefeld discovered on Twitter.
