Kate Leth and Ming Doyle Bring Gwenda Bond’s ‘Cirque American’ To Comics With ‘Girl Over Paris’

Cirque-American-Featured

Acclaimed young adult author Gwenda Bond is no stranger to comics heroes, having written the novels Lois Lane: Fallout and this year’s Lois Lane: Double Down, but now her own heroes are coming to comics courtesy of Jet City Comics. Girl Over Paris, a miniseries set in Bond's Cirque American world, comes out later this year from writer Kate Leth and artist Ming Doyle, and fills the gap between Girl On A Wire and its follow-up, Girl In The Shadows, also due for release this year.

Check Out Leth And Quinones’ Unpublished Pitch For ‘Batman ’89’

Batman 89 art by Joe Quinones

One of DC's biggest strengths as a company has always been that it has a ton of alternate versions of its characters that fans have a whole lot of affection for. Whether it's something as specific as being really into a single Elseworlds story, or as broad as preferring, say, the '90s Flash over his Silver and Golden Age counterparts, there's an adaptability to those characters that really comes through once you start looking at all the different ways they've been presented over the years --- and when you add in their appearances in film and television, it only means you have more to work with.

And that, it seems, is the premise behind Batman '89, a 2015 pitch from writer (and occasional ComicsAlliance contributor) Kate Leth and artist Joe Quinones that was designed to revisit the world of Tim Burton's Batman movies. Sadly, the pitch was never picked up, but this week saw Quinones posting his designs at his blog, finally giving us the Billy Dee Williams Two-Face that we have always deserved. Check 'em out below!

Chaos on the Dance Floor in ‘Welcome to Showside’ #3 [Preview]

showside_featured

Tomorrow sees the release of Welcome to Showside #3, the latest chapter of Bravest Warrior artist Ian McGinty's creator-owned series about easygoing Kit and his friends defending their town from demons and monsters.

This issue tells the story of a school dance, which aspiring sorceress Moon drags Belle and Kit to with the hope of having a relaxing evening. And in the preview pages, that seems to be what they have. This being Welcome to Showside, some manner of demons or monsters will inevitably show up (judging by the cover, probably zombies?), but at least the kids get some dancing in before that happens.

A Comic For Everybody: Ian McGinty Discusses ‘Welcome to Showside’ [Interview]

WTS feat

If you know Ian McGinty's name, odds are you associate it with a comics adaptation of an animated series --- Adventure Time, or Bravest Warriors, just to name two --- or the Munchkin card games. But this fall, he's turning the tables; the first issue of his new, creator-owned Z2 Comics series Welcome to Showside comes out in late October, and it's already being developed as an animated pilot, with McGinty serving as showrunner and lead voice actor. McGinty will take the role of Kit, a kid who just happens to be the son of the evil Shadow King, the leader of a netherrealm full of monsters.

We sat down with McGinty to discuss the pressure of writing and drawing a creator-owned book while overseeing an animated project, and to dig into the appeal of all-ages comics, pulling stories from real life, and snagging none other than Henry Rollins to do some voice acting.
