Francesco Francavilla Announces ‘Black Beetle’ Sequel ‘Necrologue’ [SDCC 2013]

Untitled-1

One of our favorite releases of this year was Dark Horse's The Black Beetle: No Way Out. Written, drawn and colored by Francesco Francavilla, the book was an intravenous injection of all the artist's visual obsessions: pulp, mystery, noir, masked crime-fighters, vintage cinema and graphic design. Necrologue, Francavilla's follow-up to the acclaimed (especially by us) series adds another element to the aesthetic mix: horror.

Thinking About Brian Stelfreeze’s ‘Day Men’ And The Reascension Of The Comic Book Artist

untitled-3

On sale this week from BOOM! Studios is the first issue of Day Men, a new series that introduces readers to the human helping hands of the violent vampire elite who rule the world in secret. Written by Matt Gagnon (Freelancers) and Michael Alan Nelson (Supergirl), Day Men is a cool organized crime-tinged take on the enduringly popular vampire genre, but the major selling point for the series is that it marks the return to monthly comics of one of the American industry’s most talented but elusive artists: Brian Stelfreeze. Does the final product live up to the auspicious occasion? Yes and no, but that it exists at all might be more important.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa Talks ‘Afterlife With Archie’: ‘Reggie Mantle Triggers The Zombie Apocalypse’ [Interview]

Afterlife01

Even with as strange as Archie Comics have gotten over the past few years, I don't think any of us ever expected to see an all-new ongoing series where Archie, Betty, Veronica and the rest of the gang had to contend with the apocalyptic rise of the undead. I know I didn't, and I'm pretty comfortable in saying that I think about Archie comics way more than the average person.

And yet, here we are: In October, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla are launching Afterlife With Archie, and I could not be more excited to see how young Mr. Andrews deals with trying to juggle two girlfriends and a ravenous horde of Zombies. I spoke with Aguirre-Sacasa to find out just what the tone would be, and why the whole thing is all Reggie's fault.

Best Art Ever (This Week) – 06.07.13

untitled-1-1370581961

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images 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, and some of it's endearingly silly. All of it's awesome.
