For the past few days the comics internet has been abuzz with the news out of the 2015 Image Expo, but there's something that was announced at last year's that I'm every bit as excited for as the new batch: Southern Cross, the new sci-fi horror comic from writer-artist Becky Cloonan, artist Andy Belanger, and colorist Shari Chankhamma.
Originally announced at Image Expo 2014, Southern Cross is set for release in March, and to get people excited, Cloonan and Belanger have been posting designs from the series on a Tumblr dedicated to the comic -- and clearly, it's working, largely because they are awesome.
As much Shakespeare as I read in high school and college, I confess I kind of though Kill Shakespeare's plot putting a "wizard-god" version of The Bard and his magical quill into conflict with his creations in a shared universe was a neat but wild spin on the poet's usual beat. Then I thought about it for about ten seconds and went, "Oh yeah, he wrote a lot of ghosts. Oh yeah, he wrote a lot of witches. Oh yeah... he wrote The friggin' Tempest." In next Wednesday's Kill Shakespeare: The Tide Of Blood #5 by Conor McCreery, Anthony Del Col and Andy Belanger, all kinds of supernatural elements converge in a climactic battle between, well, everyone - but especially between The Tempest's signature Sorcerer Prospero and Shakespeare himself. It's the kind of thing I imagine dudes like Harry P. and Voldemort would read to get pumped before a righteous duel.
