Hajime Isayama’s Attack On Titan has been one of the biggest crossover hits in modern manga, with a successful anime series, movies, video games and more spinning off from the original manga. The series is set in a post-apocalyptic world where society lives behind giant walls to keep the monstrous Titans at bay, and follows members of the military who seek to keep their cities safe from the Titan threat.
This October, Kodansha Comics USA will release an Attack On Titan Anthology, featuring some of the best creators from the worlds of manga and western comics, and we’ve got exclusive pages from the likes of Michael Avon Oeming, Evan Dorkin, and the Batgirl team of Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart and Babs Tarr.
Image Comics held its now traditional pre-San Diego one-day show on Thursday at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, and unveiled an impressive roster of new titles for the coming year that includes new work by familiar names such as Warren Ellis, Jason Aaron and Gail Simone; plus an encouraging number of relative newcomers and unknowns. Check out our rundown of all the news and announcements.
“The best moments in reading,” Alan Bennett writes in The History Boys, “are when you come across something -- a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things -- which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.”
These “hands” can be found in any form of literature, from novels to poetry to journalism to, yes, comic books. One such hand reaches forth from the pages of X-Men Legacy, published by Marvel and written by Simon Spurrier. Instead of being an action-packed affair, this book was a character study; a very literal glimpse into the mind of a young man searching for his place in both the mutant world and the world at large.
X-Men Senior Editor Nick Lowe hosted this year's X-Men panel at New York Comic-Con, which featured a number of big announcements for the "X" family of books. Panellists included writers Peter David, Gerry Duggan, Dennis Hopeless, Marjorie Liu, Brian Wood, Charles Soule, Simon Spurrier, and editors Jeanine Schaefer, Jordan White and Daniel Ketchum.
The future: "Blister" is an exotic frontier world originally colonized by humans after we depleted our own natural resources, but whose fertile lands have since become stained by a bloody civil war. All the action is transmitted back to Earth and directly into the minds of a depraved audience engrossed in every gruesome sight and sound from the Blister front. This is accomplished by with the service of "Holeheads" -- suicidal men and women who agree to be equipped with a surgically implanted "psychic tumors" that relay the data in real time in exchange for the chance to get themselves legally killed in a spectacularly violent fashion.
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...
"A hole in the wall of reality, a mass-market TV show based on violent military suicide, a world where the laws of physics don't work quite right, and -- yes -- a f***ing enormous primate with a f***ing enormous gun" is how longtime 2000 AD and X-Men: Legacy writer Simon Spurrier has described his audacious new project from BOOM...
Let me be the first to apologize to you, on behalf of the entire comics press. We screwed up. We were too focused on the wrong events in 2012. We spent tens of thousands of words on Avengers vs X-Men, Before Watchmen, Night of the Owls, and we missed the fact that there was a bigger, better, and extremely satisfying crossover sitting right under our noses...
Vertigo continues its recent tendencies to reclaim titles of DC Comics anthologies of yore with the announcement of Time Warp, a new/old title to debut next March that'll showcase stories by "comic book greats and up-and-coming stars of tomorrow...
What's that you say? The four teasers for Marvel's relaunched Marvel NOW! titles so far this week haven't been enough for you? How about four more to round out the weekend? This time around, Marvel's creators are all thinking Legacy, Soldier, Extended and Family...
