Untitled-1

Frank Gibson and Becky Dreistadt have established themselves as a creative team who excel at making a lighthearted, adorable comics with their work on Tiny Kitten Teeth and their Little Golden Book-esque publication of Tigerbuttah. In 2013, they were part of a crowdfunding campaign with Benign Kingdom for an art book titled Capture Creatures, which is launching this week as a new comic book series from Boom! Studios.

After giving the first issue a read, I had a quick chat with Frank about the book to learn more about the inspiration and thought behind Capture Creatures.

Best Art Ever (This Week): Elaphantmen, Sailor Moon, Masters of Sex, Janelle Monae and More

Untitled-1

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, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

Art by Missy Pena, http://zimmay.deviantart.com

Here is a fun fact about your old pal Chris Sims: I am never going to get tired of looking at pictures of Sailor Moon. I mean, it's been like 17 years since I first saw it and I keep finding the Sailor Senshi to be absolutely delightful, so I doubt that it's going to stop any time in the forseeable future.

Fortunately for me, there are fantastic artists like Missy Pena out there doing their best to make sure that there's genuinely great art out there for everyone to see. She has an amazing take on not just Sailor Moon, but other stuff that I love too, like Pokémon, The Legend of Korra and more! Check out some favorites below!

The ‘Adventure Time’ Cast Make Their Own Zines In Issue #30 [Preview]

Adventure Time #30, Boom! Studios

One of the great thing about the Adventure Time comics -- and there are a lot of great things about the Adventure Time comics -- is how great they are for telling stories with the familiar Cartoon Network characters that you could only really tell in comics. The best example might have been the fantastic Choose-Your-Own-Adventure issue, but next week, writer Ryan North and artists Kat Philbin, Missy Pena, Becca Tobin, Liz Prince, Carey Pietsch, Jesse Tise, Ian McGinty, T. Zysk, David Cutler, Yumi Sakugawa, Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb (phew) are doing it again with a special issue that's all about the cast making their own zines.
That's right, everyone: If you've ever wanted to know what a zine would look like if it was made by BMO, now is your chance to find out. It's about a bear named Cool Bear, and it is amazing.
