Justin Jordan and Ibrahim Moustafa's Savage Things continues a trend of recent Vertigo titles by breathing new life into the once ailing imprint, and the blacker-than-black-ops chaos is already riveting to behold, even one issue in. In the second issue --- out next month --- Abel is questioned over his role in the Black Forest program, and we have a preview of the interrogation.
When Image Comics has new titles to announce, it doesn't play by halves; the publisher has been known to throw down a massive number of awesome sounding titles led by amazing creators, before dropping the mic as if to say, "Top that".
Last night at Emerald City Comic Con, the publisher did exactly that as it announced fifteen new comics and original graphic novels, including new work from Jeff Lemire, Declan Shalvey and Matt Wagner.
Two great sci-fi properties come together next week with Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern #1. Written by Justin Jordan from a story by Robbie Thompson, with art by Barnaby Bagenda, this is the beginning of a six-issue miniseries that connects character from the Planet of the Apes movies to DC's Green Lantern mythology.
With titles such as Clean Room, Unfollow and Frostbite, Vertigo has been making a comeback over the past year or two, and is once again becoming a place where the best creators can let loose with their most interesting ideas.
This March, Legacy of Luther Strode writer Justin Jordan teams with High Crimes artist Ibrahim Moustafa for a new Vertigo miniseries titled Savage Things, a mix of espionage and horror that sees a terrorist group founded by the US government going rogue and turning its attention on domestic targets.
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.
