Queerness Without Question: Sfe Monster Brings the ‘Beyond’ Anthology to Kickstarter [Back Pages]

beyond-cover-feat

Created by comics writer and editor Sfé Monster, Beyond is a planned collection of all-ages stories across all kinds of different genres, tones, and styles featuring contributions from at least 26 writers and artists. The book heads into fantasy and sci-fi in ways you don't often get to see in comics --- and also features a brilliantly-realized central conceit; all of the stories are about reflecting and celebrating diverse presentations of gender and sexuality, and presenting queer characters in a positive light.

Sfé and assistant editor Taneka Stotts are now running a Kickstarter, to make the anthology a reality, and has already easily exceeded its initial target of $22000! We spoke to Sfé to find out more about the project, and where it might go from here.

Bergen Street Comics Press Ships ‘Copra Round 2′ and ‘Revenger Armory’

Copra, Michel Fiffe

Bergen Street Comics happens to be one of my favorite all-time comic shops, and it's been fascinating to watch them grow their carefully curated small press operation. ComicsAlliance has been pretty vocal about our love for Bergen Street's first offering, Michel Fiffe's Copra, and so it's surely unsurprising that we're just as excited about Copra Round 2, shipping and arriving in shops next week.

Bergen Street is also working with Chuck Forsman on his series violent vigilante series Revenger, and a special Revenger Armory zine is being offered exclusively with preorders for Revenger #2.

Thumbnail: Medusa has the Most Amazing Hair in Comics

medusa-red

Hair often plays a defining role in the presentation of female characters in superhero comics, from Jean Grey’s foreshadowing flame-red hair, to Storm’s hair-centric transformation into a street-fighting badass. In this is probably because women are expected to have more hair options; it may also owe something to how these characters are often designed to look like supermodels, with very similar facial design, so that their hair is the easiest way to tell them apart. Put Emma Frost and Dazzler in the same costume (as Chris Bachalo has done) and you may have no idea who's who.

This can be a little problematic, but it actually also gives Marvel a strange way to set its prospective next big-budget franchise apart --- because if there's one thing Jack Kirby taught us, it's that Medusa, Queen of the Inhumans, has amazing hair.

The Great Super-Costume Poll: Final Round

_supercostumes20

Costume design is one of the great strengths of the superhero genre, a way to establish distinctive visual shorthand for a character and reveal key details about concept, purpose, and personality. But which is the best superhero costume of all time? This month, we’re asking you to decide, by voting up your favorites and voting down the rest. When we have your votes, we’ll compile a list of the greatest super-costumes of all time.

We're wrapping up our super-poll with a few unusual takes on classic superhero design, from a 00s Superman pastiche to a very 80s Green Lantern, plus an arguably under-appreciated Kirby classic, and two particularly quirky robots.

Black Mask Studios Offers Tubecomics (They Are Not Comics in a Tube)

zTubecomic-sampleShot-iphone

Earlier this month, Black Mask Studios announced a new initiative to bring comics to potential fans who aren't necessarily going into comic shops. This new initiative is a products they call 'Tubecomics', which you can find, unsurprisingly, on YouTube, as well as the Black Mask Tubecomic site. With voice over and camera movement on many of the panels, they're not just videos of still comics. They're also not quite motion comics, not quite animation, not quite guided view... but they're a bit of a hybrid of all of the above. It's an interesting endeavor that's worth a closer look.

Nathan Fox Makes A Compelling Case For A Golf Comic, Of All Things

NathanFoxMasters

When I go visit my parents at their house, I inevitably end up watching some TV with my dad, and it's almost always tuned to his favorite channel: The Golf Channel. It presents an... interesting portrait of the sport, one that's focused on hitting balls out of impossible spots on riverbanks, commentators wearing matching polo shirts, the amount of titanium in clubs (at least, according to ads) and grand-prize SUVs that somehow magically sit atop water hazards.

It's enough to make someone who only occasionally dips into the world of golf forget that the sport is mostly played on stunningly gorgeous, well-manicured courses, and that the act of being an in-person spectator or player can be a strange sort of communion with nature. Artist Nathan Fox, known for his work on Dark Horse Comics' Pigeons from Hell, his covers for Vertigo's FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics, and one widely shared Wonder Woman redesign, managed to capture that sense wonderfully in some recent commissions of the Masters tournament for Golf Digest.

Gail Simone Talks About Nightwing and Oracle’s ‘Convergence’ Reunion

CONV_NW_OR_1

Barbara Gordon's Oracle identity will return in April, at least temporarily, with Gail Simone and Jan Duursema as the creative team for a new two-part storyline that teams her up with her sometime lover Dick Grayson in Convergence: Nightwing/Oracle. The series is part of DC's big spring event storyline that brings back several fan-favorite characters, including Cassandra Cain, Renee Montoya and, uh, Parallax --- but Nightwing and Oracle's return is probably one of the ones that fans are most excited for.

We spoke to Gail Simone to learn where this new story finds the pairing, to ask why Nightwing is so hot, and to learn how she was basically baited into writing the series by DC’s co-publisher!
