KC Green & Anthony Clark To Launch New Webcomic ‘Back’, All Other Webcomics To Flee In Terror

Back by KC Green and Anthony Clark

If you were going to pick two titans of webcomics to team up and create something amazing, you could do a heck of a lot worse than to try pairing Gunshow's KC Green with Nedroid's Anthony Clark. Scientists have long theorized that if those two ever teamed up, they'd probably end up making something truly incredible.

Well, scientists, theorize no more. Today, Green announced that he and Clark are in fact teaming up to launch a webcomic called Back that begins on June 18, with Green writing, Clark drawing, and character designs by both creators.

‘Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal’ Creator Zachary Weiner Kickstarts A Kids’ Book, ‘Augie And The Green Knight’

AugieGreenKnight

I'm going to say this straight out: Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal creator Zachary Weiner doesn't really need your help to get his children's book, Augie and the Green Knight, published. In not even six full days, he reached the $200,000 mark on Kickstarter. His goal was $30,000. He's doing OK.

That said, it still may be worth backing the project to get yourself a copy of this book. The story sounds like a really fun adventure featuring a whip-smart young girl, and it's gorgeously illustrated by Boulet of the fantastic webcomic Bouletcorp. It may just be the perfect thing for a kid in your life, or, you know, yourself.

Interview: Artist Barry Kitson On The Birth and Rebirth Of ‘Empire’ With Mark Waid

Untitled-1

As part of the short-lived Gorilla imprint of Image Comics in 2000, frequent collaborators Mark Waid and Barry Kitson launched Empire, a creator-owned title about the reign of a supervillain who succeeded where so many others failed, and actually conquered the Earth, uniting it under his brutal, iron-fisted rule. The initial run only lasted two issues, but a few years later, Waid and Kitson finished the first story arc under the DC Comics banner, and in so doing created something of a cult classic that some fans still regard as their best work together -- work that includes The Legion of Super-Heroes, JLA: Year One and Flash & Green Lantern: The Brave and the Bold.

Now, fourteen years after Golgoth first took control of the world, Waid and Kitson have returned to Empire, releasing it as a webcomic through Thrillbent's monthly subscription model, whereby you get access to the entire Thrillbent catalogue for $3.99, and a free download of Empire volume 1.

To find out more about the return of Empire, we spoke to Kitson about the initial idea, how he approached designing a world that had been conquered by evil, and where he and Waid intend to take the very long awaited Empire volume 2.

Kel McDonald Talks ‘Misfits Of Avalon’: ‘They’re Magical Girls Who Are All Jerks’ [Interview]

Misfits of Avalon by Kel McDonald

I've been a fan of the Magical Girl genre ever since I first saw Sailor Moon make a monster explode with the power of love and justice, so I'm pretty sure I'm right in the target market for what Kel McDonald is doing with her new series, Misfits of Avalon. Inspired by the legends of King Arthur and Irish Mythology, Misfits finds four teenage delinquents who are recruited into a life of battling monsters with magic words and super-powers in the classic style. There's just one problem: They don't know that they're actually the bad guys.

To find out more, I spoke with McDonald about publishing her graphic novel through Dark Horse while also putting it online, the appeal of terrible teenagers, and just what it was that inspired her to take on a group of jerks.

Marc Maron Teams With Tony Moore For One-Panel ‘Maron’ Recap Comics

Maron-Tony-Moore-main

Comedian Marc Maron has a super-popular podcast, WTF, and a television show about his life and named for him on IFC. The next step had to be comics, didn't it?

According to a post on the IFC Tumblr, Maron is teaming up with original The Walking Dead artist and Fear Agent co-creator Tony Moore to craft weekly, one-panel recaps of each episode of the Maron TV series. There are two so far, and they are a bit Mad magazine-like, in that they feature celebrity caricatures directly facing the reader. But hey, they look good.

Back This Book: ‘Strong Female Protagonist’ Launches Print Collection Kickstarter

Strong Female Protagonist by Brennan Lee Mulligan and Molly Ostertag

If you've never read Brennan Lee Mulligan and Molly Ostertag's Strong Female Protagonist, you are missing out. Originally produced as a twice-weekly webcomic, the story focuses on Alison Green, a teenage superhero who retires from her life of crimefighting in order to go to college, only to find out that her old life isn't quite done with her.

It's one of my favorite webcomics, and now, Mulligan and Ostertag are making the jump to print with a collection of the first four issues, funded by Kickstarter.

Ed Piskor Recreates Famous Rob Liefeld/Spike Lee Levi’s Commercial In The Style Of Rob Liefeld And It Is A Thing Of Glorious Majesty

Brain Rot: The Infamous Rob Liefeld Levis Commercial, by Ed Piskor

If you've ever wanted to see the entirety of culture in the early 1990s captured in 35 seconds, then you could do a lot worse than to watch the famous Levi's Button Fly Jeans commercial starring Rob Liefeld, directed by Spike Lee. It's a testament to the overwhelming popularity of comics in general and Liefeld in particular during that era, but more than that, it's a snapshot of the time in pop culture.

Now, cartoonist Ed Piskor has recreated it in the form of a comic strip, depicting Rob Liefeld in the style of Rob Liefeld, and it is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen.

Some people watch Neil deGrasse Tyson's Cosmos as a science show. Other's watch it more as a CGI-powered spectacular. Artist Andrew Stewart seems to enjoy it both ways, although his 5-page, black and white fan comic celebration of the FOX TV series definitely skews toward the latter, propelling the show's host through some of the most enjoyable cosmic imagery this side of Jack Kirby's adaptation of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Umbrella Academy creator and former My Chemical Romance frontman/recently announced solo artist Gerard Way has a huge Twitter following -- 740,000 followers -- and he's good about using it to share his comic book work. For example, he used his Twitter account as a springboard for his new comic starring cats, All Ages.

Still, he doesn't seem to be the biggest fan of the way some users abuse the social media platform. At least not according to his new comic on The Talkhouse, in which he imagines a Twitter-style conversation between two cat people in a house.
