One of the cool things about Adventure Timeis that it lends itself really well to hopping in and out of different genres with every adventure. Sure, it's skewed pretty heavily towards dungeon-crawling action, but over the past few years, we've seen romances, crime stories, locked room mysteries, and even supernatural horror. And now,we're getting to see Finn and Jake plot a heist -- and since they're heisting a princess, why not recruit the Ice King as an expert advisor?
That's what's going down in the pages of Adventure Time: The Flip Side #2, from the team of Paul Tobin, Colleen Coover and Wook Jin Clark! Check out the first few pages, along with a whole dang bunch of variant covers, below!
The Angry Birds. The green pigs. Two factions locked in never-ending combat. Their enduring stories of sacrifice and struggle have captured the hearts and imaginations of the world. We know their suffering. We are them. Now, those stories can be further told in comic form.
Indeed, IDW Publishing has announced it's teaming up with developers Rovio to make Angry Birds a comic that will debut this June with stories from writers including Jeff Parker (Batman '66) and Paul Tobin (Bandette).
This January Boom! Studio is promising a comic where "The 'Freaky Friday' trope is turned on its head with an Ooo-sized twist!" with the release of Adventure Time Flip Side #1, the first in body-swapping miniseries written by the Eisner Award-winning Bandette team of Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover. Illustrating interiors is Wook Jin Clark, the upcoming author of the tokusatsu-tinged Megagogo at Oni Press, with Ellen Alsop on Cover B, and more cover artists to be announced. The book's complete plot is still a relative mystery, but it should be interesting to see how Boom!'s clues pan out if they do indeed result in AT characters switching forms. Boom! has provided CA with a first-look at Alsop's cover for the upcoming mini, which you can scope out past the cut.
It looks like Periscope Studios is the place to be for PopCap Games' popular Plants Vs. Zombies. Dark Horse Comics has released the first two chapters of a new six-issue PvZ title by Eisner Award Nominated Bandette writer Paul Tobin and Roy's Boys artist Ron Chan, which are available now through Dark Horse Digital.
Fans found out about Monkeybrain's plans to partner with Image and IDW for print collections of its ComiXology offerings back in February, and now it seems Dark Horse will join the fray on November 6 with Bandette Vol. 1: Presto!
Where some conventions skew more toward pop culture than comic books, this past weekend's Emerald City Comicon 2013 stocked Seattle with hundreds of prominent creators from every corner of the medium. ComicsAlliance
You should judge books by their covers. That's what they're there for, right? Covers are designed to catch your eye, interest you in the contents of a book, and to set the tone for a book. Kids' comics tend to
We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much. The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon. It was a busy a
On sale now from Night Shade Books is Prepare to Die!, a superhero novel by Paul Tobin. The writer is best known for his prodigious work on such comics as Gingerbread Girl, Falling Skies, The Amazing Spider-Girl, the new MonkeyBrain series Bandette and much more in the comic book realm, but the publication of his prose novel Prepare to Die! prompted some readers to worry that Tobin would be leaving the comics medium. The good news is that Tobin is not leaving comics! The bad news is that he had to for the purposes of Prepare to Die!, because superhero comi
