IDW And DC Announce ‘Batman / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Team-Up From Tynion And Williams

BatmanTMNT01

You know how every now and then, a comic book company will advertise a new series by saying something like "Because YOU demanded it," but it only delivers on that promise about half the time? Well, this weekend at Comic-Con International in San Diego, IDW and DC announced a book that I have been demanding since about 1987: Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a six issue team-up series from writer James Tynion IV and artist Freddie E. Williams II that promises "wall-to-wall ninja action" in Gotham City.

Woods_013 featured

James Tynion IV and Michael Dialynas' The Woods, published by Boom Studios, is a sort of sci-fi high school version of Lord of the Flies or Lost. A group of students and teachers disappear from Earth and end up in a mysterious forest world light years away. The 36-issue series has been planned as three volumes of 12 issues each, which means issue #13 is the perfect point for new readers to jump on board and give it a try.

Woods_012_A_feat

With issue #12 coming out next week, The Woods has now traveled a third of the way through its proposed running-speed of 36 issues at Boom Studios. And already the cast of the series have had everything imaginable thrown at them --- from shadowy pus-monsters to angry faculty staff. From James Tynion, Michael Dialynas and Josan Gonzales, this is a book that very clearly has a huge sense of scale hidden away behind the dark forest that surrounds the cast. Boom has kindly shared an exclusive preview of the next issue, so we can get a sense of just what terrible problems the kids are facing next...

Push Comics Forward: Talking About The Future With Boom EIC Matt Gagnon

boom featured image

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.

The Deadly Power Of Ideas: James Tynion IV And Eryk Donovan Go In-Depth On ‘Memetic’

giphy

Later this month, BOOM! Studios will release the first issue of Memetic, an oversized-format, three-part limited series by the team of James Tynion IV (Batman Eternal, The Woods) and Eryk Donovan (The House In The Wall) with colorist Adam Guzowski that puts a distinctly modern spin on classic apocalyptic fiction formulas. The title is an adjective referring to memes -- self-replicating ideas or entities that start with an individual before spreading to more people and across various media.

The story of Memetic is kicked into motion by the unleashing of the kind of adorable animal image many of us have seen and shared. In this case, it's "Good Times Sloth," and it becomes the most viral piece of internet content in history. Unfortunately, Good Times Sloth turns out to be weaponized meme that leads straight to the end of the human world as we know it.

It's a fascinating and unique concept, and to get a bit more insight, we spoke to Tynion and Donovan about the project's inception from initial idea to finished product.

‘Thrillbent 3.0′ Introduces Subscription Model, App, New ‘Empire,’ ‘Insufferable,’ ‘Charlie Wormwood’

Thrillbent 3.0

Thrillbent, the digital comics publishing website founded by writers Mark Waid and John Rogers, has spent the past two years offering up free comics for pretty much free.

In a Wednesday blog post, Waid unveiled what he's calling "Thrillbent 3.0," which adds another layer of content that Waid is calling a sort of "Hulu Plus of comics." Fans can pay a $3.99 monthly fee -- about as much as the cover price for most Marvel single issues -- to access a collection of titles including a revived version of Waid, Barry Kitson and Chris Sotomayor's Gorilla Comics/DC series Empire. There's also a free new app available for iOS that gives fans mobile access to the material.

Vertigo Announces New ‘Vertigo Quarterly: CMYK’ Anthology Series

Vertigo CMYK
Vertigo

Part of the idea of an anthology is they break stories down to their basic components. They tell short stories that are often intended to represent a particular genre or storytelling device.

Perhaps that's the reasoning behind the title of Vertigo's new anthology series, Vertigo Quarterly: CMYK, which is set to debut this spring. The letters of the title refer to the four colors that were, due to printing limitations, the basis of all color in comics for decades. Creators including Jock, Fabio Moon, James Tynion IV, Martin Morazzo, and Tony Akins will contribute stories to the first issue, all of which will relate to the theme the color cyan.
