Darick Robertson Looks Back On His Ballistic Career [Interview]

featured darick

It was Grant Morrison's favorite comic of 2013, my favourite comic of the 21st century, and it delighted even the most stone-hearted of comic critics. Ballistic, a five-issue series from Black Mask by filmmaker Adam Egypt Mortimer and blockbuster artist Darick Robertson, last hit the streets in 2014. Now it's back --- collected, polished, buffed to a shine for your delectation. It's on your shop shelves now people! So what better excuse to look back on the career of Darick Robertson, and Ballistic in particular, with the man himself?

amped-promo-art_feat

Quite a few comics projects have been snapped up for TV and movie adaptation within just a few issues of publication, but this may be the first case of a TV version of a comic being announced when the comic is announced.

Variety broke the news this week that Supernatural creator Eric Kripke will team with cover artist Brian Bolland and interior artist John Higgins this fall for a new six-issue Vertigo miniseries called Amped. It puts a bit of a new spin on the "real-life" superhero story, which has become something of a genre unto itself in the past 10 years or so. Kripke will serve as executive producer and writer on the TV series, which will air on USA Network.

Best Art Ever (This Week): Deadwood, Maleficent, Game of Thrones, Samurai Jack, Nausicaa And More

Untitled-1

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

Ennis & Robertson’s ‘The Boys’ Blows The Bloody Doors Off

the-boys---darick-robertson---monkey

So, what's the deal with Darick Roberston & Garth Ennis's The Boys? Is it a gross-out superhero parody, the book that "out-Preachers Preacher?" Is it a more straightforward narrative, an examination of how power corrupts? Is it a rocking action movie where hard men fight men with hard skin? Is it a story about manipulation and naïveté? Let's go with "all of the above." There are two issues left in Ennis and R
