It’s that blessed time of the year where we all try to take stock of what we’ve done with our lives and what other people have created that we enjoyed. That’s right, it’s time to start putting together our “Best of 2016″ lists, and today we’re going to take a look at the Best Boom Studios Covers of 2016.
Odds are that you've heard some pretty good things about a whole host of recent comics from Boom Studios, but for whatever reason you might not have got around to checking them out just yet. Well the publisher just made it a whole lot easier to sample the best of its wares with a line-wide sale on Comixology offering 50% off all Boom titles until Monday.
I've heard tales of Northampton, and because of those tales I have never visited. No, I'm sure it's fine; a picturesque town in the heart of England. It's probably not at all the dangerous and vengeful place it's hinted to be in this prevew of Giant Days #6 by John Allison and Lissa Treiman, which sees university friends Esther and Daisy on the search for the third of their cohort, Susan, in the unfamiliar territory of her home town.
Giant Days #4 comes out this week, and it looks to be another hilarious issue of the entertaining series about college friends. One of the gang turns 18, and that means it's time for a party... but with less drinking than you would think, given that they live in England. Plus, hilarity over zine bootlegs! Writer/creator John Allison and artist Lissa Treiman look like they've really hit their stride together. Check out ComicsAlliance's exclusive preview!
John Allison and Lissa Treiman's Giant Days is a lot of things: fun, entertaining, silly, cute... but it also offers some interesting commentary on the world of the internet in issue 3. The gang at the center of Giant Days (Esther, Daisy, and Susan) encounter some crappy times with the internet that are all too reminiscent of real women's dealings with internet creeps. The story is handled with just enough humor and sincerity to make it thoughtful without being preachy. Spoilers ahead!
Animator and artist Lissa Treiman is taking on her first regular comics work, after working at Disney Animation on movies like Wreck-It Ralph and Big Hero 6. She's teamed up with cartoonist John Allison to bring his webcomic Giant Days to the print comics world with Boom Studios. Treiman's style is charming and dynamic, as befits someone who works in animation, and the first issue of Giant Days is a lot of fun. ComicsAlliance spoke with Treiman about animation, storytelling, comics, and how she balances all of the above!
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.
