Launching in 2014, Spread is a post-apocalyptic horror series that follows the aftermath of a devastating illness that destroys all life and changes everything it touches. It’s like The Walking Dead, but better.
DC Comics' outreach to independent publishers for crossovers with licensed properties has already yielded some bizarre but entertaining comics, but next year's Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern might take the cake for the weirdest crossover you didn't know you wanted. DC, Boom and 20th Century Fox have unveiled further details for the project previously teased at New York Comic Con, including the news of which creators get to helm this curious title.
Dynamite declared today “Dynamite Day 2016,” announcing several new comics featuring some of its best-known licenses. The four new titles celebrate anniversaries, collect some spectacular art, and in one case endorses a new presidential candidate who, in all honesty, seems like a pretty fair shout right now.
The biggest announcement is perhaps the new Battlestar Galactica series, written by Cullen Bunn and drawn by Alex Sanchez, set during the time of the original series. The book marks Bunn’s first ongoing series with Dynamite, while Sanchez was seen recently on books like Katana over at DC.
Valiant Comics' shared superhero universe is smaller and less familiar than those of its major rivals, but even a small shared universe can offer a lot to learn about. To help those readers looking to take the plunge into the Valiant Universe, we’ve assembled our own team of delinquents to break things down. Steve Morris knows Valiant inside out; J.A. Micheline is new to the universe. Micheline has the questions, and Morris has the answers.
Last time, Steve introduced JAM to the four main story types in the Valiant Universe: political (books like Harbinger and Bloodshot), sci-fi (X-O Manowar), comedy (Quantum & Woody, Archer & Armstrong), and supernatural (Shadowman, The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage). He set JAM the task of reading the first sixteen issues of Shadowman and The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage --- and now they're back to talk about it!
AfterShock Comics, the new publisher formed earlier this year by Joe Pruett, has announced a huge slate of writers who'll be penning creator-owned stories for their eventual launch line - including Justin Jordan, Garth Ennis, Marguerite Bennett and Amanda Conner.
New York Comic-Con 2013 afforded attendees their share of comic book debuts, ashcans and teasers in Artist's Alley, but only one featured an axe battle against an old man in a parka with a multi-fanged mouth for an eyeball. That comic? A teaser for Spread by writer Justin Jordan (The Strange Talent of Luther Strode), artist Kyle Strahm (Haunt) and colorist Felipe Sobreiro (Heavy Metal). Jordan and Strahm gave away a roughly 14-page teaser of the potential series at the show with hopes of seeing the "Lone Wolf and Cub in a world eaten by John Carpenter's The Thing" horror comic resonate with readers and potentially spark a fuller publishing plan. For those who weren't able to attend NYCC, the team has posted the full teaser comic in digital form as a free (NSFW) download through October 25. CA hit up Jordan and Strahm to see what's on the horizon for the title and its team... and also to see if they'd played putt-putt together.
Last week, DC Comics and Geoff Johns announced that, after more than eight years and 100 issues, Johns would be stepping down as the writer of Green Lantern. The publisher also revealed that the creative teams behind each Green Lantern title would be leaving their respective books, which left fans to speculate who'd be taking over...
Last week Valiant Comics announced the impending return of yet another of the characters from its sizable stable of heroes created in the early 1990s: New Orleans' very own Shadowman. Originally a jazz saxophonist who gained the power to see demons in criminals after a near-death experience, other versions of the character have fought zombies and monsters from hell...
