Strip Panel Naked: Flirting With Danger In Latour, Brunner And Renzi’s ‘Loose Ends’

LEFI

I loved every page of the first issue of Jason Latour, Chris Brunner and Rico Renzi's Loose Ends. There was a whole load of storytelling tricks and techniques to unpack, but I want to look at one that has sprung up before with Jason Latour in Southern Bastards, and it's the use of red throughout. This time coloured by Renzi, he starts to drop a very saturated red tone in various stages of the story.

The Superpower That Makes Squirrel Girl Truly Unbeatable [Kids’ Comics]

Squirrel-Girl-Featured

Ryan North, Erica Henderson and Rico Renzi’s The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is one of the best superhero comics being published today, but it’s also one of the best that fall loosely under an all-ages banner and is enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Everyone can enjoy Doreen Green’s adventures and her positive outlook on life, and the comic itself is spreading a positive message through Squirrel Girl’s empathy and how she approaches and interacts with the supposed super villains of the comic.

‘Spider-Gwen’ Co-Creator Robbi Rodriguez Retiring From Comics

Spider-Gwen

Since her creation in 2014, Spider-Gwen has been one of Marvel’s hottest properties, quickly spinning off into her own solo series with a string of new merchandise following closely behind. Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi took a one-off idea and turned it into a brand new franchise for Marvel, and a lot of the success comes down to Spider-Gwen’s awesome costume, designed by Rodriguez. However, this past weekend at C2E2, Rodriguez announced that he plans to step away from comics.

Art of Color: The Dazzling Palettes of Rico Renzi

ArtofColor RicoRenzi

Comics coloring is one of the most unappreciated aspects of the medium, despite enhancing the thematic subtext of a work and just making it look better. In this series I'm going to shine a spotlight on some of the best and most interesting colorists in comics.

Rico Renzi is one of the most recognizable colorists in the business. Whether he's working on Marvel comics like Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, She-Hulk, and Howard the Duck, or a Vertigo title like FBP, it's easy to spot a Renzi-colored comic. Renzi always employs a striking color palette. His backgrounds and spot colors take advantage of the fact that comics don't always need to be realistic. While Marvel and DC comics are often colored in a more orthodox style, Renzi employs bold contrasts even there.

SpiGwen2015001_feat

Marvel's steady stream of announcements ahead of next week's Previews reveal continued today, first with the surprising reveal of the new team on Captain Marvel, and then with news of Spider-Gwen's return. The latter announcement is less groundbreaking, but still very welcome, and it comes with a twist. The original Spider-Gwen creative team of writer Jason Latour and artist Robbi Rodriguez will continue to be the Spider-Gwen creative team after Secret Wars --- and Gwen's adventures will continue to take place in a separate reality from the main Marvel Universe.
