Christmas is a time for traditions. For some, it's all about stringing up lights on a Christmas tree and wrapping up presents to put beneath it. For others, it's spending singing carols door to door to spread holiday cheer. And for still others, it's a time to beat a log with a stick until it poops out candy.
If you're not familiar with that last one, don't worry: ComicsAlliance favorites Benito Cereno and Anthony Clark have stepped up to explain it all in an original comic featuring an Untold Tale of St. Nicholas! Check out the five-page Tio de Nadal: A True Christmas Storyafter the cut!
Though the menace that is Krampus traditionally taunts/beats/drags children off to meet the devil during the first two weeks of December, it's always a good idea to maintain vigilance throughout the entire holiday season - especially if you're a ComicsAlliance reader. If you read our stuff, we can only imagine the kind of comic book content you indulged in over the course of 2010. Lucky for you, we had renowned creator Anthony Clark illustrate a proper greeting card warning that helps us all maintain vigilance should the demonic punishment Krampus come a calling!
The holiday season is all up on us and we'd be remiss as all-get-out if we didn't do our best to help our dear readers to ring in the radness. In what's our first in a weekly series of holiday-themed cards illustrated by the esteemed Nedroid creator Anthony Clark, ComicsAlliance presents a Christmas card reminding all the good girls and boys of the world (and the bad ones too) that a certain someone sees you when you're sleeping and knows when you're awake.
If hundreds and hundreds of holiday comics, TV specials and movies have taught us anything, it's that Christmas is a time of truly magical sights. And that even applies if you're somewhere like Gotham City, where"magical sights" tend to be the last thing you see before you're murdered by a mental patient or, if you're lucky, rescued by an equally terrifying vigilante. 'Tis the season for miracles!
So today, we're offering up the last of our four ComicsAlliance holiday cards, featuring art by the inimitable Anthony "Nedroid" Clark! Click through to see the full card and get a full-sized printable versionyou can give to your friends as a reminder that hey, maybe spending time at the grandparents' wasn't so bad after all!
The eighth night of Hanukkah is upon us, and we at ComicsAlliance still want to sincerely (if unintentionally retroactively) wish the very best to all of our friends, family and valued readers who celebrated the festival of lights. Thanks to the help of our own David Wolkin and the artistic prowess of Nedroid creator Anthony Clark, we've posted a special card commemorating the annual observance in the Considerably Compelling ComicsAlliance Custom.
Feel free to print or copy them and send to your friends so they'll know exactly how much you're thinking about them this holiday season!
For me, one of the single greatest moments of the holiday season is the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! Not only does it signal the official start of the Christmas season, but it's the perfect combination of crass commercialism, holiday festivity and high school marching bands. And yet, as much as I love it, it just doesn't have enough comics for my tastes.
Sure, they've had balloons of Snoopy, Pikachu and Spider-Man before, and Marvel even had a couple of incredibly complex floats back in the '80s, but really, that just scratches the surface. Which is why today we teamed up with Anthony Clark, the artist and creator of the beloved webcomic Nedroid and the recent Beartato and the Secret of the Mystery collection, to launch the ComicsAlliance Thanksgiving Day Parade with the balloons we want to see!
Wednesdays have been the focal point of the comics calendar for as long as I've been reading them, but recently there's been a new reason to look forward to the middle of the week: Back, a webcomic that sees Anthony Clark (Nedroid) and KC Green (Gunshow) steadily weaving a bizarre and often hilarious tale of resurrection, prophecy, and the occasional Garfield phone.
When it was announced, I predicted that Green and Clark coming together would create a project that would send all other webcomics fleeing in terror of their union, and while that might have been overselling it just a bit, I don't think it was far off in terms of just how good this thing is. Now that we're about 26 pages in, it's safe to say that if you're not reading Back, you really need to be.
If you were going to pick two titans of webcomics to team up and create something amazing, you could do a heck of a lot worse than to try pairing Gunshow's KC Green with Nedroid's Anthony Clark. Scientists have long theorized that if those two ever teamed up, they'd probably end up making something truly incredible.
Well, scientists, theorize no more. Today, Green announced that he and Clark are in fact teaming up to launch a webcomic called Back that begins on June 18, with Green writing, Clark drawing, and character designs by both creators.
Back in 2012, Namco launched ShiftyLook with an eye on turning older video game franchises like Bravoman and Rolling Thunder into webcomics, and they've done a good job of it, too. Galaga, in which Ryan North, Christopher Hastings and Anthony Clark reimagined space combat as the story of two teenage girls building spaceships out of giant pixels and blasting off to defend Earth alongside a two-fisted President, was one of ComicsAlliance's best comics of 2013, and now, they're giving the team a second chance at capturing that magic.
Today, North, Clark and Hastings launched DigDug, a short story based on the classic 1982 arcade game. I spoke to the three creators to find out more about how they adapt an 8-bit game into a character-based story, where they find time to take on an additional project and whether they've officially named their team.
It's been awhile since we checked in on Chris Yates' artful line of handcrafted puzzles and it seems we discovered a new wave his Baffler comic creator collaborations not a minute too soon. Actually, in a sense, we're several hundred minutes too late! You see, the eBay auctions just wrapped for Yates' latest Baf
