Imagine a world where every person has their own god. Not just their own view or idea of god (that would be our world), but their own personal diety, visible and following them around and helping them exert influence over the world. Now imagine you lived in the world and didn't have a god of your own. That's the plight facing Ennay, the protagonist of Godshaper, a new ongoing comic written by Si Spurrier with art by Jonas Goonface.

Ennay isn't just a man with no god. He has powers over the gods of others. He's also found a friend, in a small god with no accompanying human named Bud. But gods aren't supposed to exist without their humans, so what's Bud's deal? That's only one part of the story that Godshaper will be telling. As part of our exclusive reveal of this exciting project, we had a chat with Spurrier and Goonface about what makes a god, what makes a world, and what it means to have a world with so many gods running loose in it.

comicsallianceheader

Two high school boys, two very different personalities — one, Johnny, is a black nail polish-wearing alternative "cool guy" who has been kicked out previous schools; the other, George, is a sensitive, shy, and socially shrinking boy who is (probably) dressed by his mom. On the first day of school, they're seated together. How will these disparate souls reconcile their—

Oh? They get along just fine? Refreshing! In Savanna Ganucheau's slice-of-life webcomic George and Johnny, the titular characters, though surface differences, become fast and affectionate friends as they navigate high school, band drama, and super queer thrift stores.

Friendly, Wholesome, And Tough: David Hahn And Karl Kesel On The Art Of ‘Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77’ [Interview / Preview]

Batman '66 Meets Wonder Woman '77, DC Comics

Ever since DC launched Batman '66, the crossover that virtually everyone wanted was a meeting between the Adam West-era Caped Crusader and Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman. Now, it's happening in the pages of Batman '66 Meets Wonder Woman '77, a crossover from Jeff Parker, Marc Andreyko, David Hahn, and Karl Kesel that takes place across three different eras, pitting Batman and Wonder Woman against Ra's al-Ghul, Talia, and a handful of other special guest villains.

It's an incredibly entertaining story that goes well beyond what both series were able to do on TV. To find out more about it, ComicsAlliance spoke to Hahn and Kesel about the challenge of drawing a story with three different flavors of retro style, and the era's perfect "casting" of Ra's al-Ghul, and we got a first look at this week's issue.

Reimagining Fantasy in Robin Kaplan and Nathan Robison’s ‘Ushala at World’s End’ [Webcomic Q&A]

ushalaBanner

Everyone's got baggage, but Ushala probably has a little more than most. She's the reincarnation of the woman who nearly exterminated her entire tribe many years ago. As a result, she's been exiled from her community (by her own mother!) and now has more physical baggage in the form of a carrion wraith who follows her around, hoping to devour her.

The fantasy genre also has a lot of baggage, and through Ushala at World's End, Robin Kaplan and Nathan Robison hope to upend and overcome that baggage — with matriarchal societies, a ban on sexual violence, and a more considered eye towards marginalized representation in the narrative. Webcomic Q&A caught up with them to find out more.
