Writer Caleb Goellner and artist Buster Moody are back with the fifth installment of their self-published comic Task Force Rad Squad this week. If you've never read TFRS (and you should), it's a comedic take on a tokusatsu premise. I wouldn't call it a parody of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers; it's more of an off-kilter character-based story that builds from a similar premise, while taking it in absurd directions that the original never would. The Hollywood elevator pitch is that it does gives Power Rangers the Venture Bros treatment.
The Mutanimals, that teams of misfit mutants from the TMNT animated universe is getting a new three-issue miniseries from writer Caleb Goellner and artist Chad Thomas, but they're not quite feeling themselves, it seems. That's because Baxter Stockman – the TMNT world's resident evil scientist – has turned them into robots!
To mark the book's announcement, we had a quick chat with Goellner and Thomas about the Mutanimals, the differences between mutants and robots, and why Dr. Stockman would think this is a good idea.
Ghost FM is one of the newest and most exciting comics on Stela. Written by Caleb Goellner of Task Force Rad Squad (and Eisner-winning former editor of this very site) with art by Wook-Jin Clark of Adventure Time, Ghost FM tells the story of Wesley, a kid who finds a magical radio and gets stuck with the job of helping ghosts resolve their issues on Earth. ComicsAlliance sat down with Goellner and Clark (also known as Hunter) to discuss this fun new project.
Those of you who keep track of the ComicsAlliance staff for shipping purposes may have been wondering what former editor Caleb Goellner has been up to since he left the site earlier this year. As it happens, he's been over at Wacom, and while working on tablets used for digital art is still pretty close to comics -- indeed, many comics artists use the technology to create their comics -- the company is nudging even closer with the announcement of the first-ever Wacom comics anthology.
Built around the theme of "Pressure/Sensitivity" (geddit?), the anthology will feature the talents of cover artist and ComicsAlliance favorite Ulises Farinas with stories by the equally esteemed Meredith Gran, Ming Doyle, Giannis Milanogiannis and more. Even better, the 32-page anthology will be free to download when it's released in January.
Those of you who pay attention to such things may have been wondering just what our former senior editor Caleb Goellner has been up to since he left ComicsAlliance earlier this year. Personally, I would've guessed that he'd spent the last few months swimming in a Scrooge McDuckian bin of Power Rangers and Ninja Turtles action figures, but that is not the case. It turns out that he's been working on a new comic, alongside writer Jim Gibbons, the Eisner-winning editor of Dark Horse Presents.
The book is called Birchsquatch, and it is quite possibly the greatest sasquatch-based sci-fi revenge mystery of autumn 2014, and it's available now on Gumroad as a pay-what-you-want download.
Today is Caleb Goellner’s final shift as Senior Editor of ComicsAlliance. He leaves the site after five intense years of hard work, sacrifice and success for the great mysteries beyond comics blogging — specifically, comics making.
I don't know if you've ever been told by a police officer that you weren't allowed to buy a Pokémon game, but it tends to ruin one's evening.
That was the exact situation that ComicsAlliance Senior Editor Caleb Goellner, the creators behind Trip Fantastic and I faced when we went to Nintendo World in Manhattan for the midnight release of Pokémon X and Y and found ourselves at the end of a line that wrapped all the way around Rockefeller Center. We had gotten there too late, but the adventure... was only beginning.
ComicsAlliance's own Caleb Goellner was the first person to point out the similarities between Pendleton Ward's Adventure Time and Jack Kirby's Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth to me. As such, he is solely responsible for the shame I now feel for having not picked up on the connection on my own...
The life of an Olympic Mascot is a strange one. Created in order to represent their home city during the Games, they tend to just fade away after a few weeks of selling merchandise active duty. But with the news that London 2012's Wenlock and Mandeville were starring in their own comic, we here at ComicsAlliance had an idea...
This week, we've moved our monthly War Rocket Ajax roundtable episode up a few weeks to bring you a New York Comic Con wrap-up with ComicsAlliance editors Andy Khouri and Caleb Goellner! It's a strange trip back to the stone age as we discuss everything from the return of Extreme Studios to the music of Fall Out Boy (really), and you can listen to the whole show right here at ComicsAlliance...
