Let me ask you a couple of questions, folks. Do you like uppercuts? Do you like snake people who have trouble figuring out when to stop saying the letter S? Do you like it when there are people who have their own first names tattooed across their chests just in case they forget? If you're like me, the answer to all three of those things is "yes," and that means that I have some very good news for you: You can find all of those wonderful things in the pages of Mortal Kombat X #19, available digitally this Sunday.
The series has been filling in the backstory of the game, and this time around, Shawn Kittelsen, Igor Vitorino, Oclair Albert and Veronica Gandini are revealing the origin of Outworld. Check out a preview!
So you remember a while back when we told you how there was a Miami Vice comic coming out by Joe Casey and Jim Mahfood, and that it was probably going to be one of the weirdest things on the stands? Yeah. Turns out we were right, except that it's way weirder than I think any of us actually expected it to be.
Instead of stylishly solving crimes in pastel blazers, Casey and Mahfood's take on Crocket and Tubbs has found them caught up in a nefarious plot to flood the streets of Miami with a new designer drug that turns people into shambling zombies. It's called Miami Bath Salts, and in next week's issue, Tubbs himself has been hit with a dose and sent spiraling into disco psychosis. And yes: those are all words used within this comic.
When the first issue of Ian Edginton and Francesco Trifolgi's Hinterkind hit the stands in 2013, this tale of humans and mythological creatures battling one another in a post-apocalyptic future immediately found a passionate and vocal fan base, and became a modern-day example of the offbeat genre-blending fantasy that has become a trademark of the Vertigo line from day one.
Now, after 18 issues of giants and faeries and dragons and other fantastical insanity, the series is drawing to a close, with leading lady Prosper Monday and her band of companions hurtling headlong into their greatest battle – and we're excited to bring you an exclusive five-page preview of the grand finale!
Titan is serving up an all-new comic full of robot punching (and occasional cyborg punching) from writer/artist André Lima Araújo. It's called Man Plus, and at its heart, it's a crime story... where the crime is robots punching people to death. If you're not already all in, check out a preview below!
Well-known comics artist Gene Ha is currently running a Kickstarter for his original graphic novel, Mae, about two sisters who end up on an unexpected adventure. According to Ha, it's a comic made for a broad audience from young adults on up. The project is already completed, and is just waiting for funding to be printed and shipped. That means we can show you an exclusive preview of Mae while you still have time to back the project!
A while back, the first issue of the newly relaunched The Black Hood made headlines pretty much everywhere --- including here at ComicsAlliance --- for being the first Archie Comics book to ever drop the f-bomb. Truly, it is a momentous occasion, but it seems that Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla will not be outdone, because next week's Afterlife With Archie #8 is almost certainly the first Archie comic to ever use the word "twincest-y."
The next installment of DC's digital-frist reprint Jiro Kuwata's Bat-Manga involves Batman and Robin facing off against a trio of mechanical ne'er-do-wells known as the Robot Robbers, and let's be real here: if you're anything at all like me, that's all you need to know.
If, however, you'd like a little more information, then I've got good news for you! We have in our hands an exclusive preview of the next issue, available on Comixology and other digital outlets this Saturday. And not only does it feature Batman duking it out with a robot robber, it also features the wondrous technology of his crime sensor.
Iscariot is the story of Carson, a young woman taught magic by a rebellious old magician in order to save her from cancer, and of her struggles to adapt to what her life becomes. It promises to be a powerful tale, beautifully told by author S.M. Vidaurri --- and readers who want an advance preview can see a few pages right here, or pick up the Boom/Archaia Free Comic Book Day comic this weekend.
You may know Vidaurri's work from his contributions to Jim Henson's The Storyteller: Witches, or from his exquisite and affecting previous book, Iron, Or The War After, a tale of post-war reconciliation and resistance told with anthropomorphic animals. ComicsAlliance spoke to Vidaurri to find out what inspired this new tale, how he chose the visual language, and why cardinals play a recurring role in his comics!
Today we talk to David Winnick, David Hahn, Robin Furth and Rosemary Valero-O'Connell about the ideas behind their Vertigo SFX anthology stories, 'Pop-Up' and 'Momma had a Baby and Her Head Popped Off', and find out the sounds they like to wake up to, work to, and relax to.
Considering that it's a franchise built entirely on going way over the top with sword-and-sorcery action, bizarre sci-fi, and a heaping helping of Jack Kirby-inspired action, you might think that Masters of the Universe would be exactly my jam. The thing is, it was just slightly before my time --- my mom has reminded me on several occasions that I was once really into He-Man, but I was so young that I don't really remember it, and I don't have a connection to the franchise today.
That said, I want Dark Horse's The Art of Masters of the Universe book so bad that I'm not sure if I'll be able to wait until it comes out on May 6. Compiled and edited by Steve Seeley and Tim Seeley --- the same Tim Seeley currently writing Grayson for DC --- the book doesn't just collect concept art for the TV show, toy line and comics, but it's an exhaustive look back at the franchise that even includes Mattel's internal guidelines on how to create a "generic Male Action Figure" that are absolutely fascinating. Check out a preview below!
