What a week! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to sit back and read some comics. The weekend is finally here, and the world can relax and rest once more --- but the comics industry has been busy too, and the last seven days have seen a flurry of comics-based news and announcements fly past at high speed. ComicsAlliance has got your back; when it comes to comics, we never slow down, so here’s a look back and just what’s been going on.
New comics, new stories, new hirings, new podcasts, new art being made --- it’s all part of the ComicsAlliance Weekender!
The teen detective genre is getting a shot in the arm with the announcement of Goldie Vance, a miniseries written by Hope Larson, who recently adapted Madeline L'Engle's A Wrinkle In Time, with art by Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat's Brittney Williams. The series comes this April from BoomBox, Boom Studios' "Hey talented people, do what you want" imprint.
The series follows 16-year-old Marigold "Goldie" Vance, who lives in a Florida resort managed by her father, and hopes to become the resort's resident detective.
Hope Larson, the award-winning cartoonist behind A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel, has teamed up with illustrator Rebecca Mock for Compass South, the first book in the planned middle-grade graphic novel series telling the story of a pair of young twins in 19th century New York who tumble into a world of piracy, adventure, and hidden treasure. ComicsAlliance has an exclusive first look at Rebecca Mock's wonderful cover, introducing the characters Cleopatra and Alexander.
