Even as the line between criminal mastermind and respectable businessman seems to grow ever-thinner in real life, Marvel's Kingpin of Crime is doing his best to cross that line in Kingpin #1, written by Matthew Rosenberg with art by Ben Torres.

Strip Panel Naked: The Clever Use Of Text In ‘4 Kids Walk Into A Bank’

spn1

This week I wanted to talk about one of my favourite first issues of this year, and one particularly cool sequence in 4 Kids Walk Into a Bank, by Matthew Rosenberg, Tyler Boss and Thomas Mauer. There’s a moment where one of these bad guys punches one of the main characters, a girl, in the face.

It recalls Reservoir Dogs and its stand out ear cutting-off scene. The way that works is by not showing you it actually happening --- and that's a key thing in terms of storytelling generally. A reader's imagination is often more powerful than what you can show them.

Archie Comics To Debut Four Very Different One-Shots This March

Archie-Featured

Archie Comics used to be defined by its rigid commitment to nostalgia and the familiar, but over the past few years the publisher has proved to be more than willing to shake it up and adapt their iconic characters across a variety of genres and concepts. Next year, Archie will publish four one-shots by a wide array of creators across a number of different genres, showcasing just how versatile it core cast of characters can be.

‘Rocket Raccoon’ Is Grounded On Earth In New Series By Rosenberg & Coelho [Preview]

Rocket-Featured

Thanks to the events of Civil War II, the Guardians of the Galaxy have found themselves stranded on Earth, and while that's a homecoming for members such as Star-Lord, The Thing and Venom, others aren't going to have such a good time acclimating to new customs.

One such Guardian is the notoriously cranky Rocket Raccoon, who finds himself forced to force the perils of Times Square at night and the MTA in a new series by Matthew Rosenberg and Jorge Coelho.

In the wake of the upcoming IvX event, Marvel is planning another push of Inhumans titles, with two titles, Royals and Black Bolt, announced earlier this week.

Hey! Ho! Let’s Go To Riverdale In ‘Archie Meets Ramones’ #1 [Preview]

Archie Meets the Ramones #1

All things considered, Archie Andrews has met an awful lot of famous people. Michael Strahan, Barack Obama, KISS, the Sharknado, they've all made a stop in Riverdale at one time or another. But with Archie Meets Ramones, there's a bit of a problem that's kind of hard to get past. I mean, I don't want to get too dark when I'm talking about a book that's ostensibly for kids --- albeit that small but amazing segment of kids that are into both Archie Comics and '70s punk rock --- but if you want the gang to hang out with the band's original lineup here in 2016, it's going to be a little difficult.

Unless, of course, you have a magic record from Sabrina the Teenage Witch's surprisingly vast vinyl archives. If that's that's the case, then it's as easy as dropping the needle. Check out a preview below!

Bring On The Bad Guys In Rosenberg And Lopez Ortiz’s ‘Civil War II: Kingpin’

Kingpin-Featured

Historically, war has often benefited criminals; not just those on the battlefield that are less than morally virtuous, but those back home who take advantage of the diverted attention to capitalize for their own gain. This summer, the Marvel Universe gears up for a second Civil War, and in a new miniseries from Matthew Rosenberg and Ricardo Lopez Ortiz, Wilson Fisk, AKA The Kingpin, stands to profit while the heroes are busy fighting each other.

Behind The Scenes Of Ghostface Killah’s New Album & Comic ’36 Seasons’ With Writer Matthew Rosenberg [Interview]

Untitled-1

Earlier this month, Ghostface Killah announced the release of 36 Seasons, an ambitious new album on Salvation/Tommy Boy Records which is accompanied by an exclusive 20-page comic booklet that features work by top-tier artists. The disc's storyline and packaging are the brainchild of Matthew Rosenberg, a comic creator who worked with Ghostface on last year's 12 Reasons To Die limited series from Black Mask Studios. We recently got a few minutes to speak with Rosenberg about his work on the record, the artists he sought to contribute, and his experience straddling the line between the music and comic industries – and we're excited to premiere a trio of illustrations from the project by Michael Walsh, Palle Schmidt, and Chris Pyrate, as well as showcasing some roughs and behind-the scenes material.

Grant Morrison & Vanesa Del Rey’s ‘Sinatoro’ Among Black Mask Titles For 2015

SinatoroCoverMain

Grant Morrison has been talking about his film passion project, a psychedelic Western called Sinatoro, since at least 2010. It was even promoted with a poster. But the writer's screenplay has ended up taking the route so many projects take on the way to becoming movies: It will be a comic first.

Morrison will work with artist Vanesa Del Rey on the series, which will come out some time next year from Black Mask Studios, the comics and transmedia company launched last year by comics artist Ben Templesmith, writer Steve Niles, Bad Religion guitarist/songwriter Brett Gurewitz and Matt Pizzolo of Occupy Comics. It's one piece of a big and not too shabby slate of new comics coming from the publisher in the next year, the highlights of which you can check out below.
