Exclusive Preview: Space Cities and Dead Gods in HaloGen #1 by Tierney, Chan and Milonogiannis

featured halogen

Frequent collaborators Josh Tierney, Afu Chan, and Giannis Milonogiannis have teamed up again to create HaloGen, an exciting new space adventure featuring a tough female lead investigating the death of a god. The three have collaborated in the past on the critically acclaimed Spera series of graphic novels which, like HaloGen, were published by Archaia. ComicsAlliance has an exclusive preview of issue #1, out March 4th.

HaloGen features a heroine named Rell who is chasing a rumor about the body of a dead god floating in space. The world around Rell seems to be a mix of future science and superstition, as even in future space cities, people will kill for religion. Her job is to figure out where the god is and retrieve it, but that's not a simple task, and Rell is not a simple character. Check out the preview below!

Push Comics Forward: Talking About The Future With Boom EIC Matt Gagnon

boom featured image

Boom Studios has a reputation in the comics industry for publishing an increasingly diverse group of books and creators. This commitment to diversity in genre and people is reflected in an all-new initiative the publisher announced today in Previews with a letter from founder Ross Richie. While 2015 is the 10th anniversary of Boom, the publisher wants to talk about what's next rather than what's come before. They call this discussion of the future Push Comics Forward and they don't want it to be only about Boom.

Push Comics Forward is Boom's way of focusing on the ongoing conversation about diversity and the future of the industry. To learn more about this initiative and what to expect from Boom for the next ten years and beyond, we spoke with Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon.

Best Art Ever (This Week): Harry Potter, Sleepy Hollow, Sailor Moon, Alien, Astro Boy And More

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.

Discover The Life Of A Comic Artist With AT&T’s R.A.I.D. Studio Documentary

Screen Shot 2014-10-16 at 12.33.01 PM

Drawing comics is time-consuming, sometimes crushing, occasionally rewarding, and almost impossible to quit if you love it. And it helps if you get to do it around other artists who love it as much as you do.

Those are some of the key takeaways from Comic Book Artists: Next Generation, an AT&T U-Verse documentary about the artists at Toronto's R.A.I.D. Studio (a.k.a. the Royal Academy of Illustration and Design; though it's not a real Royal Academy in the strictest sense). The studio has ten resident artists, but the half-hour documentary shines a light on four key players: Ramón Pérez, Marcus To, Francis Manapul and Kalman Andrasofszky.

Ramon Perez Pitched A ‘Mister Miracle & Big Barda’ Series That Never Happened Because We Are Living In A Fallen World

Perez01

Of all the characters that Jack Kirby created for DC Comics in the 1970s, a roster that includes OMAC and the Demon, the ones that have always resonated the most with readers are undoubtedly Mister Miracle and Big Barda. The story of a super-escape artist who fled an oppressive planet rather than be changed into something he wasn't, and a fierce warrior who overcame her brutal conditioning and learned to love, and how they conquered evil is, one of the most compelling things Kirby created in a long and unmatched career in superhero comics, and it's been a favorite of subsequent creators over the past 40 years too.

One such creator is Ramón Pérez, the Eisner-winning cartoonist of Jim Henson's Tale of Sand, who revealed on Twitter this week that he pitched a Mister Miracle and Big Barda series that "died because of the New 52."

Truly, we are living in a fallen world, but the good news is that you can at least check out a sample of Pérez's work.
