Hire This Woman: Artist Afua Richardson

Untitled-1

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.”

Afua Richardson has worked in comics for years including at Marvel, DC, and Image under her own name and pseudonyms Lakota Sioux and Docta Foo. Her comic Genius with writers Marc Bernardin and Adam Freeman won Top Cow's 2007 Pilot Season and will be published this year as a miniseries.

New Turok, Magnus, Solar And Doctor Spektor Comics Coming From Dynamite In 2014 [NYCC 2013]

Dynamite Gold Key Books
Dynamite

A common set of questions at every Valiant Comics panel since Dark Horse wrapped their stint on the properties has been about what's up with a group of characters originally published by Gold Key but later licensed by Valiant in the 1990s: Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, Solar: Man of the Atom and Magnus: Robot Fighter.

Those questions can be put to bed now, as Dynamite Entertainment, not Valiant, has announced a new line of comics via a license with Dreamworks Classics. Also part of the deal is Doctor Spektor, an "occult detective" character who hasn't been seen since a Gold Key run in the mid '70s aside from a series of reprints from Dark Horse.

First Look: Check Out The First Twelve Pages Of ‘Quantum And Woody’ #1 [Preview]

qandwklangmain

On sale this summer from Valiant Entertainment is Quantum and Woody #1, the first issue of the revival of the beloved series. Created by Christopher Priest and Mark Bright, the comic reunited childhood friends Eric and Woody who, while investigating the murders of their fathers, are caught in a high tech accident. Their bodies now made of pure energy, the two must slam together the metal gauntlets they each wear every 24 hours in order to keep their atoms from breaking apart. The series served as a spoof of the black guy/white guy buddy cop genre of the 80s and 90s and a send-up of super hero comics in general, and remains a favorite for many.

Since the latest relaunch of Valiant Comics, many fans of the cult-classic series Quantum and Woody have openly wondered if a new series would be forthcoming. After Valiant released the entire run of Christopher Priest and MD Bright's original Quantum and Woody to ComiXology last fall, anticipation for a new series only grew further.

As of this morning speculation has turned into reality, as the publisher has revealed that a new Quantum and Woody series, written by James Asmus with art by Tom Fowler and Jordie Bellaire, will debut this summer with a cover by Ryan Sook and a variant cover by Marcos Martín. And, to the relief of many, Valiant has already promised there will be a goat.
