It was only last month that Comixology launched Comixology Unlimited, a new subscription-base service with a Netflix-style model that gives access to a library of titles to read for a flat monthly fee. Since then, there's been one major question among readers: What exactly are we going to get on there?
Now, a month after the launch with titles from Image, Dark Horse, Valiant and IDW, the digital comics platform has announced the first wave of additions, set to hit Unlimited on June 27 --- including the first three issues of Afterlife With Archie, the first five of Ryan Browne's God Hates Astronauts, and the first eight issues of Matt Wagner's Mage: The Hero Discovered.
The weekend is here! Put down your paperwork, throw your stationery out of the window, and do a victory spin in your office chair, because it’s time to catch up on that greatest of all media: comics! What’s been going on this week? There’s so much comics that there’s no way anybody can keep up with all of it — so Weekender is here to catch you up on some of the stories you may have missed, and some of the best writing about comics from the past few days.
Though hugely influential on characters including Vampirella, Jean-Claude Forest's Barbarella graphic novels haven't really made a huge dent in American comics culture. Many fans are likely familiar with the 1968 movie starring Jane Fonda, but Forest's French comics haven't been printed in English since appearing in Heavy Metal back in 1978.
That's about to change thanks to Humanoids Publishing and writer Kelly Sue DeConnick. A new translation of Forest's Barbarella, scripted by DeConnick, is set for release September 24, with the first-ever English reprint of the second book, The Wrath of the Minute-Eater, coming in January.
In addition to having (limited) copies of the different hardcover editions of the English translation Final Incal, the last chapter of the decades-spanning cosmic comic book series started in The Incal by Alejandro Jorodowsky and Moebius, publisher Humanoids has announced that it'll have con-exclusive tarot cards on-hand at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
Now playing in limited release, Jodorowsky's Dune documents the history of the legendary unmade treasure that is/would-have-been Dune, a planned adaption of Frank Herbet's classic science fiction novel undertaken in the 1970s by filmmaker and comics writer Alejandro Jodorowsky...
Following domestic hardcover releases of Alejandro Jodorowsky and the late Moebius' acclaimed 1981 series The Incal and its prelude, Before The Incal illustrated by Zoran Janjetov, Humanoids will complete the trilogy/tetralogy/quadrilogy (we'll explain, we promise) for fans in the US. Coming later in 2014 are the first-ever US releases of The Incal sequels After the Incal and Final Incal.
More than a few of your favorite Marvel and DC Comics creators have projects that you may not have heard of, depending on how closely you follow their careers. In creator-owned comics, these talents get to go wild and create a story that springs entirely from their own brow, and I love seeing the results of that...
