Selina Kyle is Back in the Catsuit in ‘Catwoman’ #41 [Exclusive Preview]

CTW_Cv41_ds-feat

Costume has played a big part in writer Genevieve Valentine's approach to Catwoman since she took over the title with issue #35 late last year. Selina Kyle traded in her famous leather catsuit for a tailored black tuxedo to take on the role of Gotham City mob boss, a look designed to evoke power and status. The next issue, out this Wednesday, sees Sellina putting the suit back on to get her gloves dirty once again --- but that doesn't stop her from also wearing a pretty fabulous opera gown.

Check out our exclusive preview, with art by David Messina and colors by Lee Loughridge.

FR_feat

ComicsAlliance senior editor Janelle Assellin has wanted to start her own publishing company for a long time. When she finally decided to pull the trigger at the end of 2014, she had no real idea just how much work it would take, and to make matters more challenging, she decided to do a Kickstarter as well! With so many people out there who want to do similar things, Janelle has decided to explain how it all happened for her, and to share what she's learned.

Sketchbook Spotlight: The Art of Kevin Wada

wada-sketchbookspotlight

Convention season is upon us once again, and with it a chance for comic artists to emerge from the cloister of their studios into the world at large, and revel in the well-deserved appreciation of their fans. One of the best ways for fans to show their appreciation is by commissioning original works of art featuring some of their favorite characters, and every convention produces a feast of amazing sketchbook commissions that deserve to be shared with a wider audience. With Sketchbook Spotlight, we're picking out some of the best.

Kevin Wada's glamorous renditions of heroes and villains have fast transformed him from an illustrator who enjoys making fan art to one of the most in-demand cover illustrators in the business --- and one of the most in-demand artists at conventions. Wada typically takes commissions before and during shows, and every piece he produces is breathtaking, so fans are advised to get their name down early. We asked Wada to be the first participant in our new Sketchbook Spotlight Q&A.

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

BOOOO: Mean Old Marvel Says No To Hunks And Babes; Anka & Wada Drop ‘Swimsuit Special’ Plans

ankawada-hed

The world needs a new Marvel Swimsuit Special. Not because the old ones were great works, and not because there's any shortage of cheesecake in the pages of superhero comics today, but because a new Swimsuit Special has the potential to be something wonderful. From a smart publisher, a book of pin-ups could celebrate the diversity of superhero sex appeal for a broad audience in a non-exploitative way, breaking down the old cliches about the genre. The world is ready for fun, positive, equal opportunity cheesecake and beefcake -- and Marvel has the artists to do it.

Indeed, two of those artists were already doing it. Anyone following Kris Anka or Kevin Wada on Tumblr will have noticed of late that they were working on a "secret" project that plainly featured Marvel heroes in swimsuits. Today, Anka took to Tumblr to confirm that he and Wada had indeed been working on a new Marvel swimsuit book -- but that they have stopped production after failing to reach an agreement with Marvel. The Swimsuit Special the world deserves is not going to happen. This is terrible news.
