ATC Featured

If you listed every comics publisher based on how much you associate them with superhero comics, Fantagraphics would be somewhere near the bottom. The prestigious indie publisher has been around since 1976, publishing underground comics as well as beautiful collections of classic comic strips. But in spring 2017, Fantagraphics is getting in the superhero game with All Time Comics, a line of shared-universe books spearheaded by brothers Josh and Samuel Bayer.

Here’s Your Chance To See The Violent Debauchery Of ‘Prison Pit’ In Motion In L.A.

PrisonPitTop

Sure, artist/writer Johnny Ryan's Prison Pit is a series of graphic novels that escalates its depictions of violence and all-around immorality to such a level that readers assume that there's no possible way Ryan can top himself, and then he does. But do the drawings move?

Well, they didn't, until now. If you're in the Los Angeles area, you can go see what promises to be an X-rated animated version of the books, now five volumes deep into the grotesque, occasionally genitals-based brutality of the inhabitants of the hellish titular pit. It'll be at Cine Family on August 30.

The Phil Coulson Memorial Awards: ComicsAlliance’s Best Comics of 2012, Part 5

05philcoulson

We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much.
