Magical girls are special. They defend love and justice with a squad of their best friends, and they look cute while they're doing it. Their transformation sequences into their alter-egos are filled with sparkles. They remind us that the girly aesthetic is not a bad thing, and can actually be very powerful.
You've probably got a few magical girls in your life, so we've put together this gift guide to inspire you to find the perfect presents for them.
Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist.
This week I'm looking at one of my favorite comics of the last year, Zodiac Starforce, which was written by Kevin Panetta with art by Paulina Ganucheau.
Never fear, Citizens of Townsville --- the Powerpuff Girls are back! Not just in an all-new 40-episode season arriving on Cartoon Network starting in April, but with an equally all-new ongoing comic from IDW. Show writers Jake Goldman and Haley Mancini are co-writing the comic. And Mancini's more than just writing the Powerpuff Girls, she's also one of their arch enemies, as the voice of Princess Morebucks on the show. Art for the comic is provided by Derek Charm, whose work you may have seen in Super Secret Crisis War and Star Trek: Starfleet Academy.
Retailer incentive covers will feature art by animators from the Powerpuff Girls cartoon, starting a Jay Hasrajani variant for this first issue. There's also a subscriber variant by Paulina Ganucheau, as well as the standard cover by Charm.
Boom Studios has revealed three Fried Pie exclusive variant covers for Lumberjanes and Might Morphin Power Rangers: Pink by artists Wook Jin Clark, Carolyn Nowak, and Paulina Ganucheau.
The Lumberjanes: Makin' the Ghost of It #1 cover by Nowak and the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Pink #1 cover by Clark will both be offered exclusively at Fried Pie Con on May 28th at the 2nd & Charles store in Kennesaw, Georgia, where Power Rangers: Pink co-writer Brenden Fletcher will appear for a store signing. Ganucheau's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Pink #1 cover will be available from Fried Pie as part of the book's regular release.
CBS' Supergirl adaptation proved to be one of the highlights of the past year's season of television, packed with action, drama, excitement and a whole lot of heart. One of the best things about the show was that in a time where so many superhero adaptations are grim morality plays that pit friend against friend, Supergirl was a bright ray of sunshine that focused on the power of teamwork and the hidden strength in us all.
Last night saw the final episode of Supergirl's first season, and if you're still reeling and can't for season two, we've assembled a list of five of the best independent comics for you to try next that are fun, strong and powerful, just like Supergirl.
Dark Horse Comics brought a heap of new comics to ECCC this year, mixing up its familiar line of licensed comics with an increased focus on creator-owned projects. This weekend they unveiled ten new comics that will launch across 2015, offering up an appealingly diverse range of styles and content aimed at a broader audience. Here's a better look at what you can expect from Dark Horse in 2015.
Magical Girls are showing up everywhere in comics and cartoons lately; from Steven Universe and Bee and Puppycat to Batgirl and Help Us! Great Warrior, it's getting easier to find that awesome combo of punching and sparkles every day. The generation that grew up on Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor is now beginning to tell their own stories, each with a very different take, and we couldn't be happier about it.
The latest addition to the canon, announced today by publisher Dark Horse, is Zodiac Starforce, a brand new all-ages miniseries coming in August from writer Kevin Panetta (The Amazing World of Gumball, Bravest Warriors, Regular Show) and artist Paulina Ganucheau (Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, TMNT: New Animated Adventures, Bravest Warriors). Both are regular contributors to BOOM! and IDW, and the team has adapted their short-lived webcomic into a four-issue story. We sat down to talk to them about the comic, their influences, and what to expect from this team of high school heroines.
If you spent a lot of time watching Cartoon Network when you were a kid (or when you were, you know, in your twenties, no judgment here), then one thing you probably wanted to see more than anything else was a gigantic crossover between all of their original programming. Who didn't want to see Professor Utonium and Dexter swap scientific notes, or find out what would happen if the Powerpuff Girls took on Aku from Samurai Jack?
Well, in case you weren't already aware, that's actually happening right now, in the form of IDW's Super Secret Crisis War, and next week, it hits Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, courtesy of writer Ivan Cohen and artist Paulina Ganucheau, in a story about Pixel, shape-shifting robot that can duplicate any of the imaginary residents.
