Artist Andre Araujo Constructs a Dystopian Android City for ‘Man Plus’ [Interview]

manplus-crop

For the last few weeks, writer/artist André Araújo has been publishing pages from his new Titan Comics series Man Plus as a webcomic, offering a free look at the opening chapter in his story about a robotic dystopia. As he puts it, it's a story about "a shimmering metropolis where technology rules with a heavy hand, and cyborg strike teams are commonplace" --- or in other words, the perfect chance for him to assemble an entire city using only his imagination.

Having completed a thesis in architecture, Man Plus provides Araújo with the opportunity to realize some of his ideas on the page, and create not only a futuristic world and narrative, but a futuristic landscape as well. With the series heading to print in January next year, ComicsAlliance spoke to Araújo to find out more about how it came to be.

Ask Chris #259: How I Learned To Love ‘Achewood’

Background art by Chris Onstad

Q: What in the world is so great about Achewood? I've tried it a couple times , and it's always seemed average at best. -- @DylanJBurnett

A: Believe it or not, Dylan, there was a time when I was just like you. Much as I love it now, Chris Onstad's Achewood didn't click with me the first time I read it, or the second. Or the third or fourth, for that matter, and every time one of my friends would respond to a joke about Airwolf or the Smiths with a link to the strip, I'd wonder why anyone liked this comic about the weird dog running around in his underwear.

Then one day it just clicked. It might have been when I finally realized that Ray was a cat who was running around in his underwear, and it might've been when I finally sat down to read a complete story, but it all fell into place, and I came away firmly standing behind the idea that The Great Outdoor Fight is the single best comic of the 21st century.

Chris Onstad Is Taking Commissions For Original ‘Achewood’ Paintings, So I’m Gonna Need $800 Before Christmas

Achewood01

Even though there hasn't been a new strip in over a year, there's still hardly a day that goes by without me heading over to Achewood.com for some reason, usually because I'm talking about something that was covered in the comic. Today, it was a conversation about Airwolf, and when I went over there to find this strip --- an all-time favorite --- I noticed something I hadn't seen before: A link to an original art gallery where Chris Onstad is selling commissions and paintings of his characters.

And now, there's nothing in this world that I want more than an $650 oil painting of Roast Beef, the cat who has depression.

Brian Shearer’s ‘William The Last’ Hits Its Peak on Kickstarter [Back Pages]

wtl_promocover1-crop

For the last two years, comics artist and writer Brian Shearer has been telling the grand tale of William the Last as a webcomic, the story of a young orphan boy who lives on a small island with only his grandfather for company. But when he finds himself all alone, William starts climbing the huge mountain right in the center of the island. He climbs, and he climbs.... and finds a strange new world where cities are in ruins and chaos has taken hold of the people.

William the Last is a passion project for Shearer; each page is beautifully designed and illustrated. With the first few stories now told online, Shearer has brought the project to Kickstarter to raise funds for a print edition. ComicsAlliance spoke to him about the book, and how it came to life.
