Free Comic Book Day

‘Archer and Armstrong’, ‘Eternal Warrior’ and ‘Harbinger’ Returning in 2015


As has become a tradition for Valiant over the last couple of years, the publisher's Free Comic Book Day offering closes with teasers for new books launching later in 2015. This year's comic teased returns for Archer & Armstrong, Eternal Warrior, and Harbinger; it looks as though Valiant is bringing it all back harder than an S Club 7 reunion tour.

‘And Then Emily’ Returned… for Free Comic Book Day: In Conversation with Lees and Laurie


Visiting the bustling hive of energy that was Edinburgh Comic Con back in mid-April, I was delighted to see that the table of dynamic duo John Lees and Iain Laurie had completely sold out of their critically acclaimed horror comic, And Then Emily Was Gone.

With a highly anticipated prequel, And Then Emily Was Gone #0, as one of the highlights of the 2015 Free Comic Book Day slate, what better time to sit down and talk horror, David Lynch, Scottish folklore, and how such a wicked comic ever reached our shelves with Lees and Laurie?

S.M. Vidaurri on the Magic and Meaning of ‘Iscariot’ [Interview/Preview]


Iscariot is the story of Carson, a young woman taught magic by a rebellious old magician in order to save her from cancer, and of her struggles to adapt to what her life becomes. It promises to be a powerful tale, beautifully told by author S.M. Vidaurri --- and readers who want an advance preview can see a few pages right here, or pick up the Boom/Archaia Free Comic Book Day comic this weekend.

You may know Vidaurri's work from his contributions to Jim Henson's The Storyteller: Witches, or from his exquisite and affecting previous book, Iron, Or The War After, a tale of post-war reconciliation and resistance told with anthropomorphic animals. ComicsAlliance spoke to Vidaurri to find out what inspired this new tale, how he chose the visual language, and why cardinals play a recurring role in his comics!

Chris Sheridan’s ‘Motorcycle Samurai’ Is Coming To Print From Top Shelf In July

Motorcycle Samurai by Chris Sheridan

You know that scene in Road House where Dalton talks about how a certain phrase is just two nouns put together to elicit a response? That's the way I feel about Chris Sheridan's Motorcycle Samurai. Except, you know, in a good way.

Described pretty accurately as "Mad Max meets Kill Bill," the series originally ran digitally at Thrillbent, and in July, it's coming to print. Top Shelf will release Motorcycle Samurai Vol. 1: A Fiery Demise, a softcover clocking in at 176 pages, telling the story of the White Bolt and how she delivered a bounty to a town called Trouble, and if you haven't already read it, it's going to be something you'll want to pick up.

Miles Morales Finds A New Home as Waid and Asrar’s ‘Avengers’ Line-Up is Confirmed


Whatever the Marvel Universe looks like after Secret Wars, we now have confirmation that Miles Morales is a part of it. The final members of Marvel's post-Secret Wars Avengers roster were revealed this morning, and as just about everyone had guessed, the figure front and center is Miles Morales, the Ultimate Spider-Man. He joins a team that also includes Iron Man, Vision, Captain America (Sam Wilson), Thor (current version), Nova (Sam Alexander), and Ms Marvel. All of which most people had also already guessed.

The creative team for the Free Comic Book Day comic that introduces this team has been revealed as Mark Waid, Mahmud Asrar and Laura Martin; presumably they'll also be the creative team on the title proper.
