Valiant’s First Non-Revival Release To Be ‘Punk Mambo’ One-Shot From Peter Milligan [Interview]

PUNK_ZERO_COVER-B_HUGHES

It's a very interesting time to be a Valiant comics fan. While the company's roster is made up of titles that revive the classic Valiant properties of the 1990s, they've proving to be anything but predictable in terms of content and presentation. Over the last six months alone, they've launched insane promotional campaigns, kicked off major crossover events, brought back long-time favorite creative teams, announced new projects from major creators, and gained acclaim for a publishing approach that seems more or less like "bring in topnotch talent, let them work their magic, and have fun".

Later this year, the company will release its first book named for an character that didn't have a counterpart in the '90s Valiant line: Punk Mambo #0, a special one-shot issue written by Peter Milligan and drawn by Robert Gill focusing on the mohawked voodoo priestess first introduced in the pages of Shadowman. Described by Valiant as the story of how Punk Mambo migrated from crusty British high society to the dark world of American voodoo, and how she returns to her origins to discover "the punks and the voodoo priests she used to know have cleaned themselves up, and she’s a loud, belching ghost from their past, come to break in the new furniture…and break some faces!"

ComicsAlliance readers are getting the first look at three different covers to issue #0, and an exclusive conversation with writer/creator Peter Milligan about his plans for the character and her

Valiant Announces Peter Milligan, Cary Nord And A Bunch Of Severed Heads In ‘Eternal Warrior: Days Of Steel’

EW00

I think we can all agree that the biggest problem with modern life is that there's just aren't enough violent barbarians severing heads for our amusement and enjoyment. It's a problem, but fortunately, the fine people over at Valiant are stepping up to the plate to help out.

This November, Valiant is launching Eternal Warrior: Days of Steel a new three-issue miniseries by the team of Peter Milligan and Cary Nord, focusing on Gilad, one of a trio of immortal brothers, and a mysterious mission that he undertook in the tenth century that will presumably result in severed heads. Alot of severed heads.

Comics have seized center stage at the venerable British Library in London this summer in an exhibition celebrating the history of British comics and the work of British creators. Subtitled, 'Art and Anarchy in the UK', the Comics Unmasked exhibition places an emphasis on protest, outsider culture, and anti-authoritarian voices.

Curated by Adrian Edwards, Paul Gravett, and John Harris Dunning, Comics Unmasked draws heavily on the British Library's own collection to establish and define Britain's relationship to the comics art form -- stirring up nostalgia, scandal, and some surprising discoveries along the way. And Kieron Gillen's giant head.

Vertigo’s ‘Time Warp’ Anthology Returns Rip Hunter and Trolls with Super-Science

untitled-2

What I love about the comic book anthology is the frequently anarchic approach they can take to compiling disparate creators and stories. It's like putting a bunch of great cartoonists, writers and artists -- some of whom you know, some you've never heard of-- in a playlist and hitting "shuffle." What I love about Ve

‘Hellblazer’ #300 Marks The End Of An Era For Constantine And Vertigo

hellblazer-lede

With the 300th and final issue of Vertigo's Hellblazer, out this week, several tumblers shift and lock into place. John Constantine moves to the New 52 on a full-time basis, with a new title beginning in March; the reset button is pushed on his continuity, and the most writer-driven character of the last thirty years is yanked from the comfort and promise of a Mature Readers label and forced to grow up again in a PG-13 world; and the longest-running title in the Vertigo line concludes a twenty year run, as the imprint focuses exclusively on creator-owned comics. It's a sad time for misfits everywhere, as Hellblazer is o

Three ‘New 52′ Titles Get New Writers In DC’s Latest Round Of Creator Shuffling

jldark8-1328075162

So why did DC Comics choose 52 as the number of titles to promote as part of their "New 52" reboot/relaunch/PR offensive? I'm beginning to think it might have been because there are 52 cards in a deck, and, like a deck of cards, the New 52 creative teams are always being shuffled. Acco
