I love Halloween, but if we're going to be honest with each other -- and I think that's important if we're going to remain America's Most Beloved Comic Book News And Opinion Website™ -- then I'll have to admit that my favorite thing about October is seeing Christmas decorations pop up in stores. Yes
It was just the other day that I was writing about how I never really understood why comics were always crossing over with the Predator, but today, I have officially been convinced that it's all worth it. Archie Comics and Dark Horse have announced Archie Meets Predator, coming next spring from writer Alex De Campi and artist Fernando Ruiz.
The Predator, an alien from space who comes to Earth in order to hunt the deadliest and most skilled humans alive, will join The Punisher, KISS and the cast of Glee in the illustrious and growing roster of unlikely Archie crossovers, and while Frank Castle took a few shots at our redheaded hero, it seems like the Predator is the one most bent on doing violence to our Riverdale pals.
Last week, we brought you the news that IDW was launching My Little Pony: Friends Forever, an all-new, all-pony team-up series kicking off in January. The idea behind the new ongoing title is to pair up two members of the MLP cast for new adventures, and things are starting off in the first issue with a team up that's even more interesting than Pinkie Pie and Applejack having a bake-off: writer Alex de Campi and artist Carla Speed McNeil.
This week, I spoke to de Campi and McNeil to find out more about their approach to the characters, their favorite moments from the show and their ideal plans for Rainbow Dash -- which I can assure you are awesome.
Crack open your history books and mark it down, everybody: 2013 is the year that the superhero genre finally gave up its stranglehold on the medium of comic books and was replaced by its new successor: Pony Comics. This week, we have seen the first step in the equestrian takeover as IDW has announced the creative team for My Little Pony: FriendsForever, a second ongoing series set to launch in January starring everyone's favorite friendship-based horses, starting with a story about Pinkie Pie and Applejack from the creative team of Alex de Campi and Carla Speed McNeil.
A sequel to the Eisner-nominated 2005 limited series Smoke (with artist Igor Kordey), writer Alex de Campi's graphic novel Ashes was one of comics' bigger Kickstarter successes, raising over $32,000 in 2011 via the increasingly influential crowd-funding platform. But disaster struck when de Campi and her Ashes collaborator Jimmy Broxton (aka James Hodgkins) parted ways in acrimonious and public fashion before the dystopian poli-spy book was
I like Kickstarter a lot. It's an efficient way to directly connect with artists while also making sure that a project that interests you gets funded. There are still a few hitches that need to be worked out, but my experience with Kickstarter has been largely positive. I've
One of 2011's most successful comic book Kickstarters -- creative projects produced independently with funds pledged by patrons, rather than publishers -- Ashes suffered a tremendous setback when writer Alex de Campi and artist Jimmy Broxton (aka James Hodgkins) fell out over creative differences after the project had already been fully funded. The si
As made plain in ComicsAlliance's Year-End Infographic tracking comic book projects funded by the Kickstarter platform, Ashes was among 2011's most successful crowd-supported comics. Written by Alex de Campi and illustrated by Jimmy Broxton, the proposed 256-page graphic novel was funded to the tune of $32,455 i
Written by Alex de Campi and illustrated by Igor Kordey, Smoke was a critical favorite when it was originally released by IDW Publishing in 2005, earning an Eisner nomination for Best Limited Series. Six years later, de Campi is back with artist Jimmy Broxton to c
When we last wrote about Art Brut back in March, the British indie rock outfit had just released the cover artwork for their new album, Brilliant! Tragic!, illustrated by ComicsAlliance favorite Jamie McKelvie (Phonogram: The Singles Club, Suburban Glamour). The band's comic book connections deepened this week with the debut of their latest music video, "Lost Weekend," whi
