There's a long history of musicians crossing over into comic books and trying their hand at a new craft, and while some, such as Gerard Way and Max Bemis have made great impressions on the industry, there's always a Gene Simmons or Courtney Love who doesn't quite manage to pull it off.
Later this year, Marvel Comics will release an original graphic novel titled Masters of the Sun: The Zombie Chronicles, which sees The Black Eyed Peas' Will.I.Am stepping away from the studio to tell a story about aliens and zombies in LA's hip-hop culture.
Jim Mahfood is returning to comics, and specifically to his creator-owned Grrl Scouts, for a new series at Image called Grrl Scouts: Magic Socks. Mahfood made a splash in comics back in the late '90s, with a very graffiti-inspired style of cartooning that was entirely unlike anything we were used to seeing in comics at the time. He hit it big drawing Clerks comics for Kevin Smith, and then went on to draw some fun Spider-Man stuff for Marvel, as well as publishing previous volumes of Grrl Scouts at Oni Press.
While DC Rebirth has reinvigorated the entire publishing line, the Batman family of titles have been solid-to-great since Mark Doyle took over as group editor several years ago, and with talent like Tom King, Rafael Albuquerque and Hope Larson helming the books, it's no surprise they're so successful.
Ahead of the full release next week, DC has provided us with an exclusive first look at some of June's Batman family titles, highlighting what's to come in the pages of Batman, All-Star Batman, Batgirl and Super Sons.
Between titles like The Sixth Gun and Harrow County, it could easily be argued that Cullen Bunn is at his best when working within the framework and language of horror comics, and his creator-owned work has shown how adaptable he is within the expansive genre. This June, Bunn has a brand new horror series at Boom Studios as he teams up with rising star Jack T. Cole for The Unsound, a supernatural thriller that takes place in the bowels of a seemingly normal hospital.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. won’t be back with its “What If” pod until sometime in April, but that isn’t stopping the team from imagining the past four seasons with a Hydra twist. See for yourself, with some clever posters showing how Agents of HYDRA might have unfurled in another reality.
We're marching ever closer to 2017's all-Nazi, all-the-time mega-event Secret Empire but it seems that a good number of the Marvel heroes aren't going to take the HYDRA takeover lying down. The publisher has announced a number of one-shots tying into the event that feature the likes of Mockingbird, Emma Frost and Black Widow forming groups to stand up to Steve Rogers definitely-not-a-Nazi-we-promise regime.
Ghost In The Shell is on a lot of people's minds right now, and while the upcoming Scarlett Johansson-starring Western cinematic adaptation is garnering its fair share of controversy it has made people re-evaluate and reappraise their love for Masamune Shirow's classic manga. To celebrate the series, Mondo has teamed up with Kodansha Comics and Gotham Academy and Southern Cross' Becky Cloonan for a pair of exclusive prints, timed to go on sale at some point today.
While Mike Mignola may have officially put an end to the adventures of Hellboy, the prolific creator has established a living, breathing universe over the past twenty-plus years and its one that shows no signs of slowing down. ComicsAlliance has the exclusive reveal of June's crop of Mignolaverse titles, including The Visitor: How and Why He Stayed and a huge prose collection featuring stories by Chelsea Cain, Delilah Dawson and Chris Roberson.
Ivan Brandon, Jason Latour, Greg Hinkle and Matthew Wilson's Black Cloud is a world where dreams and stories are another plane of existence, and for the right price there's one woman who get you in. While the series itself works in more mature themes of homelessness, loneliness and addiction, Fried Pie Con has a variant cover featuring one of the denizens of these worlds looking extra cute, and ComicsAlliance has the exclusive cover reveal.
When the mind thinks of the densest, most sprawling narratives realized over the past couple of decades, the kaiju-influenced action show Power Rangers usually doesn’t pop up first. But a quick scan online would reveal that the series has run for a mind-boggling 837 episodes (and counting!) over the course of 24 seasons since 1993. The series has assumed many forms since then, rebooting itself as a show about ninjas (Power Rangers Ninja Storm), samurai (Power Rangers Super Samurai) and dinosaur-themed warriors (Power Rangers Dino Thunder, Power Rangers Dino Charge, and Power Rangers Dino Super Charge — kids love their dinios). It is, by anybody’s measure, a lot of television.
