If there's one thing comics could genuinely always do more of, it's high-octane comics that are too fun to care about being anything else and if that doesn't also describe metal/punk legends GWAR, I don't know what would. Following up a successful Kickstarter campaign last year, GWAR: Orgasmageddon has been picked up by Dynamite for a wide release, bringing the mayhem and destruction to an even larger audience.

It’s that blessed time of the year where we all try to take stock of what we’ve done with our lives and what other people have created that we enjoyed. That’s right, it’s time to start putting together our “Best of 2016″ lists, and today we’re going to take a look at the Best Boom Studios Covers of 2016.
We're always up for something new here at ComicsAlliance. When comics writer Matt Miner got in touch to let us know that he was collaborating with a group of interdimensional aliens who were also members of a rock band called GWAR... it wasn't the strangest thing we'd ever heard. But it was intriguing. And with the recent announcement of GWAR: Orgasmageddon, a new comics story from Miner, GWAR, and artist Jonathan Brandon Sawyer, we had to find out exactly what was going on.
With the comic now running on Kickstarter and edging towards a funding target of $39,000, we sat down with Miner and Sawyer to get their insight on how this bizarre, violent, musically disturbing collaboration came about. Fear everything!
After pinch-hitting with a four page contribution to the second issue of Welcome Back, Claire Roe takes over as full-time series artist for the third issue of the hit series about reincarnated assassins in a multi-generational cat-and-mouse game. She joins writer Christopher Sebela and replaces co-creator Jonathan Brandon Sawyer, who sadly had to step down for personal reasons, but will continue as cover artist.
Originally launched as a four-issue series, Welcome Back has been extended to open ended status after the first issue went to a third printing (and the second issue to a second). That's great news for relative newcomer Roe, whose previous credits include Saltire at Diamondsteel Comics and a short story for Vertigo's SFX anthology, and great news for the readers who get to discover her crisp, kinetic artwork!
