Frequent collaborators Josh Tierney, Afu Chan, and Giannis Milonogiannis have teamed up again to create HaloGen, an exciting new space adventure featuring a tough female lead investigating the death of a god. The three have collaborated in the past on the critically acclaimed Spera series of graphic novels which, like HaloGen, were published by Archaia. ComicsAlliance has an exclusive preview of issue #1, out March 4th.
HaloGen features a heroine named Rell who is chasing a rumor about the body of a dead god floating in space. The world around Rell seems to be a mix of future science and superstition, as even in future space cities, people will kill for religion. Her job is to figure out where the god is and retrieve it, but that's not a simple task, and Rell is not a simple character. Check out the preview below!
Cartoonist Jeremy Bastian's Cursed Pirate Girl is an intricate work of art that follows, as promised, a cursed pirate girl who travels the seas engaging in adventures, in a piratical Alice in Wonderland kind of way. Illustrated like a late-19th century fever dream, it's a book that rewards repeat reads. The first graphic novel was released as a hardcover in 2012 by Archaia to great critical acclaim after a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2010. And now, a new Cursed Pirate Girl story is on its way from Archaia this summer.

Boom Studios has a reputation in the comics industry for publishing an increasingly diverse group of books and creators. This commitment to diversity in genre and people is reflected in an all-new initiative the publisher announced today in Previews with a letter from founder Ross Richie. While 2015 is the 10th anniversary of Boom, the publisher wants to talk about what's next rather than what's come before. They call this discussion of the future Push Comics Forward and they don't want it to be only about Boom.
Push Comics Forward is Boom's way of focusing on the ongoing conversation about diversity and the future of the industry. To learn more about this initiative and what to expect from Boom for the next ten years and beyond, we spoke with Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon.
For most of a certain generation, the TV show Fraggle Rock is a beloved childhood memory. Beyond its basic and undeniable Henson charm, it was also a show with a lot of smart, complex lessons for kids and adults. For this reason -- as well as because some of those children have now grown up to be parents -- it's no surprise that comics publisher Archaia jumped at the chance to publish Fraggle comics.
Now that Archaia is a part of Boom Studios, the publisher's approach to Fraggle comics has shifted a little, with the first-ever Fraggle Rock comic miniseries, Fraggle Rock: Journey to the Everspring. Written by Kate Leth and drawn by Jake Myler, it's the longest Fraggle comic yet. ComicsAlliance sat down with thes creators to talk about making Fraggle comics, working with Henson, creating new characters, and, of course, their favorite Fraggles.
Archaia showed off a few pieces of Ramón Pérez's art from the graphic novel adaptation of Jim Henson and Jerry Juhl's unfilmed screenplay, A Tale of Sand, in their 2011 Free Comic Book Day issue, but aside from those images fans haven't learned much else about the visual side of the title. A few cool new details have emerged from LA Weekly's recent visit to Archaia's studio, however, that flesh out the kind of reading experience readers can expect when A Tale of Sand
Despite the industry norm of translating printed comics to digital formats, Archaia Comics is experimenting with a digital-to-print model with its debut of the new "Tumor" graphic novel by Joshua Fialkov ("Elk's Run") and Noel Tuazon ("Graphic Classics").
