The Field top

Image Expo is over, but that doesn’t mean the publisher is out of announcements.

A four issue miniseries from creators Ed Brisson and Simon Roy, The Field promises to feature, among other things, an ex-bible salesman, dirty sex, meth, and at least a murder or two.

‘The Walking Dead Season Two, Episode One: All That Remains’ Takes Some Chances [Review]

The Walking Dead All That Remains Main
Telltale Games

After all the acclaim and attention Telltale Games got for the first season of its The Walking Dead video game, it'd be perfectly understandable for the developers and writing team to simply stay the course. To their credit, they haven't done that with the first episode of the game's second season, titled "All That Remains." The interface and art style are slightly different, the characters have developed and grown, and, most noticeably, the tone has changed somewhat.

But while I'm all for keeping things fresh, I'm not sure the changes are entirely positive.

Comics Alliance Reader Choice Awards: Best Artist [Poll]

ComicsAlliance Reader Choice Awards Best Artist

2013 was a great year for comics.

Best Sequential Art Ever (This Week): Juanjo Guarnido, Annie Wu, Chip Zdarsky

Blacksad

The comic book, animation, illustration, pinup, mashup, fan art and design communities are generating amazing artwork of myriad styles and tastes, all of which ends up on the Internet and filtered into ComicsAlliance’s Best Art Ever (This Week). These images convey senses of mood and character — not to mention artistic skill — but comic books are specifically a medium of sequential narratives, and great sequential art has to be both beautiful (totally subjective!) and clear in its storytelling (not so subjective!). The words and the pictures need to work together to tell the story and create whatever tone, emotion and indeed world the story requires. The contributions of every person on a creative team, from the writer to the artist(s) to the letterers, are necessary to achieving a great page of sequential storytelling.

It is the special nature of comic books that we’re celebrating in this recurring feature: Best Sequential Art Ever (This Week).

Image Expo top

 

One of the most significant -- and to many readers, one of the most exciting -- developments in comics in the last few years has been the growth of Image Comics, with many of the most popular writers and artists in the industry currently producing much, if not all, of their creator owned work through the publisher. As such, Image Expo has become a highly anticipated event, as publisher Eric Stephenson uses the annual show to announce several upcoming books from both established and new talent.

Today's Image Expo continued that tradition, as more than a dozen new titles were announced, from Ed Brubaker, Grant Morrison, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Chris Burnham, Matt Fraction, Rick Remender and more.
