Comics and music go hand in hand, and there’s nothing quite like putting on that perfect playlist, sitting down with a good story, and getting lost for a while. We’ve tasked our best writers with crafting the ultimate mixtape to compliment their favorite comics, to hopefully introduce you to comics you might not have tried and artists you might not have heard.
Magdalene Visaggio, Eryk Donovan, Claudia Aguirre and Zakk Saam's new series Quantum Teens Are Go is the story of two punks in love as they attempt to build a time machine. While making this mixtape, I wanted to capture that technopunk spirit; something that would match the world that Nat and Sumesh live in; something that would match their relationship to it, and also their relationship to each other.
In what seems to be a relatively short space of time, Magdalene Visaggio has become one of the most sought after creators in comics, with the series Kim & Kim wowing readers, and an upcoming backup in Young Animal's Shade The Changing Girl among her credits. Black Mask Studios seems to know talent when it sees it, as the publisher has snapped her up for three new titles, including a sequel to Kim & Kim, and a brand new series titled Quantum Teens Are Go with artist Eryk Donovan.
It's Sci-Fi Week on ComicsAlliance, and I'm celebrating with more Cast Party than usual, with a science fiction theme. For this one, I'm focusing on Kim & Kim, the Black Mask sci-fi comic written by Magdalene Visaggio, with art by Eva Cabrera and colors by Claudia Aguirre.
Kim & Kim #2 is out today from Black Mask Studios, written by Magdalene Visaggio with art by Eva Cabrera and colors by Claudia Aguirr, and after reading the new issue, I couldn’t wait any longer to offer my thoughts about the series so far, and what makes it stand out from the current crop of comics.
Debuting in July from Black Mask Studios, Kim & Kim is a rollicking science fiction adventure comic about two young queer women working as dimension-hopping interplanetary bounty hunters. It's written by Magdalene Visaggio, drawn by Eva Cabrera, and colored by Claudia Aguirre, and it promises to be one of the breakout debuts of 2016.
ComicsAlliance sat down with Visaggio to talk about sci fi settings, character-building, and that whole messy queer representation thing.
