Fox's Sleepy Hollow may be the most comic-book-like show on television, excepting the growing list of shows that are actually based on comic books. It tells the story of a Revolutionary War-era man -- who always wears the same clothes -- being revived in the present day and working with a local police officer to fight an invincible demon with no head and a semi-automatic rifle. They have to come up with clever ideas -- like traps made of light -- to fight off the evil all around them.
Frankly, it's a wonder the show hasn't become a comic before now. Boom Studios has recruited writer Marguerite Bennett (Superman: Lois Lane) and artist Jorge Coelho (Venom) to tell stories that tie into the show. From the sound of it, they have a pretty good handle on it in their upcoming four-issue miniseries.
This might be the strongest "oh crap I need to own that" reaction I've had to anything in 2013 so far. Criterion, the company that produces high-end Blu-ray/DVD collections of classic films, has recruited more than 25 artists to produce illustrations for an upcoming Zatoichi box set, collecting the 25 Zatoichi films produced between 1962 and 1973. The list of creators involved is somewhat staggering, with names like Bill Sienkiewicz, Ron Wimberly, Yuko Shimizu, Jim Rugg, Paul Pope, Samuel Hiti and more.
Max Bemis and artist Jorge Coelho's bombastic, well... funnyhyperviolentintrospectiveactionromance comic known as Polarity concludes on July 3 with issue #4, bringing to a close one of my favorite limited series of the year. Initially (and quite happily) surprised by the book's sheer resonance back in April, it's been rad to ride along for the Say Anything/Two Tongues frontman's fun dialogue and Coelho's fluid art, which at times (especially with the colors of Felipe Sobreiro) feels evocative of the extraordinary Kevin O'Neill -- if O'Neill were a little more into v-necks and cardigans Boom! Studios has provided CA with a first look at the issue, along with its cover by Frazier Irving, which you can preview past the cut.
I admit it. I was worried about Polarity. I'm a 27 year-old dude who, until a few years ago, dreamed of glibly belting thinly-veiled Kamandi allusions over metalcore breakdowns for a living. I'm only filling you in here so you hav
Back in 2009, in an interview with Marvel.com, Max Bemis of Say Anything and Two Tongues mentioned that in addition to loving to read comics, he'd also started writing his own, "...but that probably won't get thrown into the public eye for a while because I'm a perfectioni
