weekender

What a week! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to sit back and read some comics. The weekend is finally here, and the world can relax and rest once more --- but the comics industry has been busy too, you know, and the last seven days have seen a flurry of comics-based news and announcements fly past at high speed. ComicsAlliance has got your back, though: when it comes to comics, we never slow down, and so here’s a look back and just what’s been going on.

New comics, new stories, new events, new podcasts, new projects being made --- it’s all part of the ComicsAlliance Weekender!

Kickstarter To Collect Trina Robbins’ ‘Dope’ Adaptation Nears Goal

Dope1

Trina Robbins is often not given the credit she deserves both as a legendary creator and as a force for real change within the comic book industry. A trailblazer her entire career; she designed the classic Vampirella costume, was the first woman to draw Wonder Woman, and was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame in 2013 in recognition for her lifetime of work in comics.

Robbins deserves many more eyes on her work, which is why it's so exciting that a Kickstarter has been put together by Drew Ford under the It's Alive imprint to collect and publish her adaptation of Sax Rohmer's 1919 novel, Dope.

Huppen, known professionally as Hermann, is rumored to have won, despite having said he would decline the award.

The controversy prompted some debate about which women should have been in consideration, with the sort of career and longevity that a lifetime achievement award is meant to recognize. Some people have argued that few eligible women exist, but the reality is that women are undervalued, and the extent of their contributions have been overlooked. We've compiled a list of 12 women who deserve recognition for their lifetime of work in comics, but this is just scratching the surface.

Because everything that was ever on television is either back on television or otherwise available on the Internet, we're fortunate to have Superman: The Comic Strip Hero, an eminently watchable documentary about the Man of Steel that was somehow unearthed by our friends at iFanboy...
