Thinking About Brian Stelfreeze’s ‘Day Men’ And The Reascension Of The Comic Book Artist

untitled-3

On sale this week from BOOM! Studios is the first issue of Day Men, a new series that introduces readers to the human helping hands of the violent vampire elite who rule the world in secret. Written by Matt Gagnon (Freelancers) and Michael Alan Nelson (Supergirl), Day Men is a cool organized crime-tinged take on the enduringly popular vampire genre, but the major selling point for the series is that it marks the return to monthly comics of one of the American industry’s most talented but elusive artists: Brian Stelfreeze. Does the final product live up to the auspicious occasion? Yes and no, but that it exists at all might be more important.

Passion, Freedom And Motion In Gillen And McKelvie’s ‘Young Avengers’ [Review]

youngavengers1

We at ComicsAlliance have never been shy about our love for Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie's excellent indie Phonogram. We named The Singles Club the fifth-best comic of 2010, broke the story about Phonogram's end, and wondered hopefully at the teasing implications of a return. When The Immaterial Girl was announced in 2012, we celebrated, and when we heard it was pushed back to 2013, we were a little crestfallen. But when it was announced that Gillen and McKelvie would be the creative team on the relaunch of Young Avengers, we figured we could probably wait a little longer. We were right. Five issues in, the creative team has made Young Avengers one of the most exciting and experimental books on the stands, and one of the few comics about youth that actually captures the energy and potential of it.

The Charles Xavier Memorial Awards: ComicsAlliance’s Best Comics of 2012, Part 2

02charlesxavier

We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much. The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon. It was a busy a

Parting Shot: Young Avengers By ‘Scott Pilgrim’ Creator Bryan Lee O’Malley

untitled-2-1349986436

It's of course very typical for variant covers to be illustrated by big name artists, but I think it's pretty rare for the pairing of title and artist to be as natural -- even inspired -- as it is here, where Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O'Malley draws the Young Avengers for the variant cover of issue #1. Launching in January of next year, the se

Gillen, McKelvie Relaunch ‘Young Avengers’ in January

yavengers1

Not content with writing critically-acclaimed series about teenage characters in Journey Into Mystery and Generation Hope, Kieron Gillen is revamping Marvel's premiere teen super team as he and Phonogram partner Jamie McKelvie relaunch Young Avengers in 2013 as part of the ongoing Marvel NOW! roll-out.

The new series brings together members of the original Young Avengers team created by Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung - Wiccan, Hulkling and Kate Bishop - with a numb

Marvel NOW! Teases ‘Amateurs’ From Kieron Gillen And Jamie McKelvie

marvelnowamateurs

Clearly, the Marvel NOW! teasers are just getting unfairly abusive with the latest release. After all, Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie have been making comics together (The wonderful Phonogram) and separately (Gillen's Uncanny X-Men and Journey Into Mystery, McKelvie's Defenders and Suburban Glamour, amongst others) for years. But despite that, now they're being described as "Amateurs"? I mean, that's just cruel.More seriously, the teaming of Gillen and McKe
