David Baillie and Meghan Hetrick Walk Us Through A Magical Glasgow for ‘Red Thorn’ [Interview]

redthorn-feat1

Modern day miracles meet the dark legends of Scottish mythology in Red Thorn, the recently launched series from writer David Baillie and artist Meghan Hetrick that's part of Vertigo's 2015 renaissance. The series is set on the streets of Glasgow, where an American girl called Isla brings her drawings to life while occult magics from centuries ago start boiling back up to the surface.

Scotland's rich history --- both real and mythical --- swirls through the series like a thick mist, offering a look at the harder, grittier types of legend that seem so quintessentially Scottish. The series marks the culmination of a years of planning from Baillie and Hetrick, who spoke to ComicsAlliance about their work together, what readers can expect from the series, and just what the heck a "semmit" is.

BestComics_1202

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.

Vertigo Announces ‘Dark Night,’ A New Batman Graphic Novel From Paul Dini And Eduardo Risso

Paul Dini and Dark Night: A True Batman Story

There are few creators in the history of Batman who have had a greater impact on the character than Paul Dini. As one of the showrunners of Batman: The Animated Series, he shaped not only how a generation of television viewers would view Batman, the Joker, and Gotham City's other heroes and villains, but also how the comics would be influenced for decades after the show's launch.

Behind the scenes, though, it seems as though 1993 was a rough year for Dini's relationship with Batman, owing to a violent mugging that left him with a broken skull and his faith in the ideas behind superheroes shattered. Now, as revealed at The Hollywood Reporter, Dini is revisiting that trauma alongside artist Eduardo Risso in a new graphic novel from Vertigo, Dark Night: A True Batman Story.

The Wizard: A Birthday Tribute to Alan Moore

alan-moore-frankquitely-feat

Born today in 1953 in Northampton, England, Alan Moore grew up to be a giant. His impact on comics is so vital and apparent that even reporting on his accomplishments feels both daunting and profoundly unnecessary. Widely regarded as the best comics writer of all time, Moore's influence is without question; his presence an articulate line of demarcation carving up the medium into two decidedly different eras. Moore is a juggernaut, monolithic in both influence and intractability, with a true legacy even greater than his supposed one.

Perspectives On A Crime: Tom King And Mitch Gerads On ‘The Sheriff Of Babylon’

Sheriff of Babylon, Vertigo/DC

Tom King might have the most impressive résumé in comics. Long before he became one of the breakout stars of superhero comics with books like Grayson and Omega Men, he specialized in counter-terrorism, including working for the CIA in Iraq. Now, he's drawing on those experiences for The Sheriff of Babylon, a new ongoing series from Vertigo with artist and co-creator Mitch Gerads.

To find out more, I spoke to King and Gerads about the origins of the project, their approach to research, and the three characters taking center stage in their crime story.
