If you've been reading ComicsAlliance for a while, you may already know that for the past few years, I've been working on filling up a sketchbook themed around Jack Kirby, but after three years and over fifty sketches, I thought it was finally time to retire it and move on to something else. That's why this year, I started up a new sketchbook themed around another influential comics creator: ShotaroIshinomori, the original creator of Kamen Rider and the Super Sentai series that have spun off to 40 years of tokusatsu shows by other creators.
With Emerald City behind us, there are a dozen sketches in the book, which means it's time to start sharing. Check below for Power Rangers and Kamen Riders from artists like Chuck BB, Erica Henderson, Derek Charm and more!

After 52 sketches, you'd think I'd be running out of characters, but with only a couple repeats, it's still going strong. Today, in honor of Kirby's 96th birthday, I'm putting all the sketches in one place to show some of the best artists working in comics celebrating Kirby's lasting legacy as a creator!

Adventure Time fans have watched Finn and Jake try their respective human/dog hands at kingship before and it wasn't exactly their thing. In this week's Adventure Time #13 backup, "Princess of Rad Hats," by Chris Schweizer the pair of heroes ar
There are a lot of reasons why comic book conventions are great. Boxes of cheap back issues and the chance to chat with your favorite creators (or, if your standards are a bit lower, your third-favorite comic book critic) are great, but some of the real highlights come from the stuff. And on that front, la
This week on War Rocket Ajax, Chris Schweizer joins us to talk about his incredible Oni Press graphic novel series, The Crogan Adventures! He talks to us about what inspired his ongoing tale of family history and historical adventure, as well as what it's like to have a comic scrutinized by students when you're a professor of sequential art. Plus: Babies vs. Alligators, and you can listen ot the show righ
The phrase "Hey kids, comics!" is a bit of a defunct rallying cry these days. While most comic book fans would wildly roll their eyes and shove their Mature-rated favorites at the very mention of it, The Graphic Textbook is embracing the notion and the potential that exists between developing minds and comics pages. The project, lead by writer Josh Elder (Mail Or
