In the overwhelmingly male comic book industry, it has been a challenge for some editors and readers to see the ever growing number of talented women currently trying to make a name for themselves. With that in mind, ComicsAlliance offers Hire This Woman, a recurring feature designed for comics readers as well as editors and other professionals, where we shine the spotlight on a female comics pro on the ascendance. Some of these women will be at the very beginning of their careers, while others will be more experienced but not yet “household names.”
Letterer Saida Temofonte has been working in comics for almost 20 years for a variety of companies including Wildstorm, DC Comics, and Marvel. She is currently lettering many projects from DC's digital division, including the much-beloved Lil Gotham series. She is also a storyboard artist for film.
According to a new licensing announcement, DC Comics will soon be teaming up with Sanrio for a new collection of merchandise featuring Hello Kitty suiting up as DC's finest, including Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman.
The legendary and outspoken writer behind Watchmen, V for Vendetta, From Hell, and many more of the most memorable comic book stories of the last 30+ years, Alan Moore's feelings on creators' rights are well documented. He's continued to discuss his views at length in Occupy Comics, Black Mask Studios' Kickstarter-funded anthology inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement, opining mainly on the comics industry's complex historical relationship with counterculture and corporations. Titled "Buster Brown At The Barricades," much of the latest chapter focuses specifically on Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, and their lifelong struggle for credit and control of the Man of Steel they created and sold for just $130 in the 1930s.
DC Comics' pricing policy for digital comics has changed. Earlier today Comic Book Resources broke the news that DC has extended its window for reducing prices on its same-day digital comics released on ComiXology.
DC Comics announced two brand new digital comics formats Tuesday evening, one that might look somewhat familiar to readers of Marvel's Infinite Comics, the other which puts a new spin on the classic "choose your own adventure" book.
It's ComicsAlliance's first day back, and our return is due in large part to our readers, many of whom showed up nearly every day to show support even when the site all but shut down. After all of that, we felt the need to show our appreciation in some small way, and we figured handing out some cool stuff was at least a pretty good start, so we've teamed up with our new sister sites Arcade Sushi and ScreenCrush to set up a giveaway of this Batman: Arkham Asylum Breakout Lego Set.
