Wizards, Lizards And Other Figments Of Fancy: A Birthday Tribute To Vaughn Bode [NSFW]

EvanNorman_Bode1200

Vaughn Bodé is one of the few comics creators whose work transcends genre and style – his art can't be compared to anything but itself, and can really only be described and categorized as "Vaughn Bodé style". In his brief career, he redefined the very idea of what a cartoonist could be, pioneering a drawing style that inspired and confounded, blending and distorting fantasy tropes with every pen stroke. His stories were filled with spaced-out hallucinations and a direct, earthy sensuality, and established him as a guru of graphic storytelling and the first proper rock star of the comics field.

To mark the occasion of his birthday, ComicsAlliance reached out to a handful of our favorite modern-day artists to offer their takes on Bodé – his characters, his style, his feeling, and his inspiration.

Best Art Ever (This Week): Dazzler, Lobo, Pretty Deadly, Hunger Games, Doctor Who and More

Untitled-1

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations 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, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

The Tokusatsu Sketchbook: Spring 2014

Green Power Ranger by Buster Moody

If you've been reading ComicsAlliance for a while, you may already know that for the past few years, I've been working on filling up a sketchbook themed around Jack Kirby, but after three years and over fifty sketches, I thought it was finally time to retire it and move on to something else. That's why this year, I started up a new sketchbook themed around another influential comics creator: Shotaro Ishinomori, the original creator of Kamen Rider and the Super Sentai series that have spun off to 40 years of tokusatsu shows by other creators.

With Emerald City behind us, there are a dozen sketches in the book, which means it's time to start sharing. Check below for Power Rangers and Kamen Riders from artists like Chuck BB, Erica Henderson, Derek Charm and more!

Planet Comicon 2014 Comic Creator Photos

Planet Comicon 2014 Photos
John Parker

Kansas City's Planet Comicon has steadily grown into what may be the biggest comics and pop culture convention in the Midwest. After spending several years in the Overland Park Convention Center, a mid-sized facility in a suburb of Kansas City, last year Planet Comicon moved to Bartle Hall, a much bigger facility in the heart of downtown. This year, the convention doubled in floorspace, drew cosplayers likes flies to vinegar, and brought in a litany of television and pop culture stars, including legendary rapper Darryl "DMC" McDaniels, pretty much the entire cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the puffy one himself, Sir William Freaking Shatner.

But this site is called ComicsAlliance, and what we really care about are the comics and the creators who make them. Click onwards for a sometimes-blurry Blackberry camera gallery of guests, friends, and artist alley residents of one of the fastest-growing cons in the country.

Comics We Love: ‘Screamland: Death of the Party’ [22-Page Preview + Interview]

untitled-1-1320818599

If you think you're fed up with the ghastly state of Hollywood horror, mystery and science fiction, where vampires are sunbathed supermodels with perfect skin and wolfmen are traffic-stopping adonises with chiseled abs -- and where everything else pretty much just sucks too -- then you should ask the real movie monsters how they feel. A werewolf, a c

Read the Secret Origin of a Washed-Up Alien Adult Film Star in ‘Screamland’ #2 [Exclusive Preview]

screamlandmassorigin

In the world of Screamland, Hollywood isn't always kind to its movie monsters. It's cheaper to create a CGI beast than to nourish prima donnas with fangs and fur, after all. So when an invisible b-movie legend is found quite visibly murdered at a fantasy convention, it's up to his equal

We're equally entertained and disturbed when troubled starlets and maniacal (ex) sitcom stars go off the deep end. But no mere mortal's missed court date, botched rehab or other sort of meltdown can compare to the depravity of Screamland's Wolf M
