Bee And Puppycat Are The Worst Maids Ever In Issue #3 [Preview]

Bee00

In her review of the first two issues of Natasha Allegri's Bee and Puppycat comic, ComicsAlliance's own Juliet Kahn declared it to be the product of "a creator raised on Jim Davis and CLAMP," and really, that's the best way you could possibly describe the aesthetic heritage of this project: a perennially unemployed twenty-something magical girl and her strange, eternally scowling and space-faring pet of indeterminate species going on adventures in an equally uncertain but nevertheless compellingly cute universe of weirdness and wonder.

For the third issue of BOOM! Studios' comic book version of the Cartoon Hangover animated series, Allegri hands her creation over to cartoonists and storyboard artists Tait Howard, Aubrey Aiese, Madeline Flores, Ian McGinty, Fred Stressing and Anissa Espinosa for a quartet of new stories. For their chapter, Howard and Aiese pit Bee and Puppycat against an apartment in desperate need of cleaning, and shows just what they're willing to do to get out of washing dishes. I think we can all relate.

Zac Gorman Expands The World Of ‘Costume Quest’ With ‘Invasion Of The Candy Snatchers’ Graphic Novel [Interview]

Costume Quest Invastion Of The Candy Snatchers main

Over the past few years Zac Gorman has made a name for himself paying tribute to his favorite video games with his comic Magical Game Time. This October the cartoonist will be spreading that same magic into his first graphic novel, Costume Quest: Invasion of the Candy Snatchers, a companion narrative to Double Fine's 2010 Costume Quest RPG. While Costume Quest followed a human kid and their friends as they battled candy-stealing monsters called Grubbins to recover their kidnapped sibling from another dimension, Invasion of the Candy Snatchers will flip the script and see what the non-evil Grubbin Klem got up to that Halloween. CA got in touch with Gorman to learn more about his first official video game project and how he's taken to working on his first longer form comic.

Zac Gorman And Friends’ ‘Tossed Salad & Scrambled Eggs’ Frasier Zine Can’t Come Fast Enough

Thanks to Netflix, an entire generation has had the opportunity to binge-watch Frasier, the 11-season Kelsey Grammer-starring Cheer's spinoff set in Seattle that chronicled the radio call-in show hosting, café-crawling sitcommery of Dr. Frasier Crane. A sample of this binge-watching population, of course, has been a vanguard of comics talent, including Nedroid's Anthony Clark, Gunshow's K.C. Green and many more. So it's only fitting that I've spent the past 10 months or so stoked to see more of Magical Game Time creator Zac Gorman's upcoming Tossed Salad And Scrambled Eggs zine, which could very well pack tons of oddball Frasier homages into a package -- just miles of Niles, man.

Best Art Ever (This Week) – 08.09.13

Untitled-1

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.

Princess Bubblegum and BMO Ponder Time Travel In ‘Adventure Time’ #7 [Preview]

Time travel has a mixed reputation in sci-fi. Sometimes it's used as part of cautionary tales, other times it's a force for pure awesome. Adventure Time #7 will touch on this discrepancy in all its algebraicness out August 22, and the consequences could be suitably mathematical. The issue's main story will be
