From its days as unfamiliar black-and-white single comics discovered as if by chance in Western comics shops, manga has become the biggest-selling sector of the comics industry, and an influence on dozens of creators in the North American industry.
Much like Western comics, manga is for everyone, so if you know someone who loves comics but has never got into manga, we've put together a gift guide with great ideas for books and movies that you can buy them this holiday season.
Tradd Moore’s work is crazy, detailed, over-the-top nonsense, so it’s great to see him back on a story --- no matter how short --- for Ghost Rider #1. Moore is especially notable for his flexibility, and the opportunities for fun this provides to his collaborators. With his work being larger than life, it means the colorist working with him can play around with their work, too. They don’t necessarily have to strive for realism in their rendering, and can make the colors really pop and get in your face.
Val Staples has that opportunity with their short story in Ghost Rider, and she takes it.
Ghost Rider --- Spirit of Vengeance, reckless driver, and the only character anyone's talked about on this season of Agents of SHIELD --- is back in his own comic thanks to Felipe Smith, Danilo Beyruth, and Tradd Moore, and we have an unlettered first look at the new series, courtesy of Marvel.
Last month, Marvel announced a whole slew of titles that fall under the new Marvel Now banner, but it seems one of them may have slipped through the cracks. Today, the publisher has announced a new ongoing Ghost Rider title once again starring Robbie Reyes as the flame-headed vengeance seeking anti-hero.
Boom Studios is heading to San Diego Comic Con next month with an impressive roster of exclusive variant covers for titles like Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Steven Universe --- with one of the best cover ideas I've seen all year --- and more.
Check out the full roster below, including details on how much each cover is going to set you back!
Ghost Rider, the daredevil stuntman with a skeleton head made of fire, debuted in Marvel Comics on this day in 1972, and despite being one of the most definitively '70s Marvel concepts, along with Power Man and Iron Fist, the character has retained a lasting appeal and remains endlessly fun.
WonderCon 2016 starts tomorrow, March 25, at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Downtown Los Angeles, and runs until Sunday March 27, and Boom Studios is gearing up with the reveal of three covers for Steven Universe and the Crystal Gems, Mighty Morphn' Power Rangers, and Jonesy, available exclusively at the show, and debuting here on ComicsAlliance.
Boom Studios had an impressive 2015, thanks to a stong roster of new titles by exceptionally talented creators --- with standouts that include Welcome Back, The Fiction, Cognetic, Curb Stomp, Diesel, The Spire, Wild's End, and... well, you get the picture. It was a good year.
Tthat must come as a relief to the publisher, because this was also Boom's tenth year in the business, and that put those folks in a partying mood. One notable way they marked the anniversary was with special variant covers that celebrated both their books and the artists working on them. As the clock ticks down on 2015, we've collected the covers together in one gallery for you to enjoy.
The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, "Which comic books should I be reading?" or, "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?" The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.
