Jake Wyatt Shares His Design Process For ‘Necropolis’ And It’s Unsurprisingly Awesome


It wasn't that long ago that Jake Wyatt started Necropolis, a new fantasy webcomic that quickly became one of my favorite things to read. In the strips published so far, Wyatt shows off an incredibly engaging fairy tale style that blends the sinister bargains of its main character with some of the most beautiful pages of the year.

Unfortunately, the comic hit a delay in updates thanks to a cross-country move, but rather than leaving his readers waiting for the next few pages without anything to tide them over, Wyatt has taken the opportunity to share some of his design process --- including full short stories that he made to test out the Third Sword's look.

‘Ms. Marvel’ Wins at Hugo Awards Dogged by Political Manipulations


The 2015 Hugo Awards took place at the 73rd annual Worldcon in Spokane, Washington, on Saturday, recognizing achievements in science fiction and fantasy storytelling. Administered by the World Science Fiction Society, the awards are considered the most prestigious in their field, and many of this year's winners reflected the progressive edge of the genre --- a trend perhaps exemplified by the winner for Best Graphic Story (aka the comics category); Ms. Marvel Vol. 1: No Normal, by G. Willow Wilson, Adrian Alphona and Jake Wyatt, published by Marvel.

Read This: Jake Wyatt’s ‘Necropolis’ Is Already Amazing


You know what's a great way to wake up? Getting out of bed, making a cup of coffee, and sitting down to find out that Jake Wyatt has a new fantasy webcomic about a young girl's quest for revenge against anyone and everyone. Short of rolling over to find out that you have literally been sleeping on a pile of hundred dollar bills, it might actually be the best way to start your morning --- and this way, there's significantly less risk of papercuts.

The comic is called Necropolis, and even though it's only a few pages in, it's already amazing, with gorgeous art and story that feels familiar, but is being told in a beautifully expert way.

‘Edge Of Spider-Verse’ #5 May Not Be The Tokusatsu Spider-Man We Want, But It’s Still Pretty Rad [Review]

Edge of Spider-Verse #5, Marvel Comics

If there's one thing that you need to know about ComicsAlliance, it's that we are very much in favor of Supaidaman, the '70s tokusatsu series where Marvel's Spider-Man was reimagined as Takuya Yamashiro, a dirtbike racer chosen by an alien from Planet Spider to defend the world from Professor Monster with the aid of a giant robot. It's one of my favorite things in the world, and if you asked me to pick one thing that I'd want to see from Marvel, it would be for Yamashiro to return to action in the pages of the modern Marvel Universe.

As a result, it's hard for me to look at this week's Edge of Spider-Verse #5, by Gerard Way, Jake Wyatt, Ian Herring and Clayton Cowles, without just seeing that it's a tokusatsu-inspired take on Spider-Man that simply isn't the one I want it to be. It took a lot of effort to get past that -- effort that was mostly motivated by how great last month's "Spider-Gwen" issue was -- but in the end, I'm glad I made it. It might not be the book I wanted, but it's definitely pretty fantastic in its own right, even if it suffers from a distinct lack of dirtbikes.

‘Edge Of Spider-Verse’ Solicits Tease Spider-Man Noir And Two New Spider-Types


One of the things I love most about Spider-Man (and let me tell you, there's a lot I love about Spider-Man) is how adaptable the character is to different situations, settings, and even different characters taking on the role.

Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott and an assembled team of writers and artists are picking up that ball and running with it in the upcoming "Spider-Verse" event, and they're getting a little bit of a head start with what they're calling "Edge of Spider-Verse," a series of one-issue stories that introduce readers to the various iterations of Spider Men and Women. Marvel has released solicitations for the first three issues of the five-issue series, which feature Spider-Man Noir, a new spin on Spider-Woman, and a futuristic Spider-Man who wears a helmet (and who probably isn't from 2099).

Kelly Thompson's Storykiller by Stephanie Hans

Here at ComicsAlliance, we obviously have a vested interest in seeing comics bloggers do well with their various projects. That said, it's a lot easier to get behind stuff when it looks like it's going to be amazing, which is why we're all pretty excited about Kelly Thompson's Storykiller and the roster of incredible artists she's gathered to illustrate the special edition of her new novel.

As you might imagine from the title, Storykiller follows the adventures of a young woman named Tess Battle, who possesses both a giant black battleaxe and the ability to kill fictional characters, and it's set to be illustrated by CA favorites like Ross Campbell, Ming Doyle, Declan Shalvey and more.
