Cartoonists Brittney Sabo and Victoria G. Elliott have created a delightful event for the folks of Tumblr: Witchsona Week. Everyone and anyone is encouraged to create a witch persona for themselves --- a personal avatar that presents the version of a witch they want to be or see themselves as --- and the results are fantastic.
Since this is the second annual week of this sort, artists who created characters for the previous Witchsona week are encouraged to explain what's new with their witchy avatars. There's a broad range of styles and attitudes amongst the artists represented, and a lot of talent on display.
Ah, Mario Kart. Nothing has provided more people with hours of enjoyable entertainment and friendship-ruining arguments over who threw that Blue Shell and why you had to wait until I was just about to cross the finish line you unbelievable dick, that's so cheap, you need to leave, no I'm not kidding, get out.
Uh... sorry. Point is, Mario Kart rules, and now we have one more reason to love it: It inspired Tumblr user jetgreguar to kick off a fun project where artists drew self-portraits as Mario Kart racers! The results have been fantastic, so we've picked out a few of our favorites that we want to see battling it out on Rainbow Road.
Writer Gail Simone, who is getting ready to wrap up a sometimes-tumultuous run on Batgirl, has started a new Tumblr called Comics Survival Kit that aims to help up-and-coming or aspiring comic creators navigate the tricky landscape that is professional comics work.
When the news broke about the announcement of a Jem and the Hologramsmovie, ComicsAlliance promised to stay on top of the story, and today, just in case the very idea of a Hollywood adaptation of Jem having its roles crowdsourced via Tumblr wasn't weird enough, we have now reached the second wrinkle of the story: Christy Marx, the original creator of Jem and the Holograms, won't be involved in themovie.
In a statement on her Facebook page that followed the announcement of Jon M. Chu's upcoming film, Marx revealed that she was informed of the movie a few days before the announcement and spoke to Chu about it, but that "no one in the entertainment arm of Hasbro wanted to talk to me, have me write for it, or at the very least consult on it."
Last week, cartoonist Rachel Dukes posted some eye-opening statistics to her Tumblr about a comic she made about what life as a cat owner is like. She originally published the comic with a copyright notice and a URL to her website. That version of the comic has been seen about 81,600 times.
Another version, from which someone removed the URL and copyright info, has been seen nearly 600,000 times, mostly on Tumblr and Facebook. This problem of lack of credit is one that lots of artists have dealt with and quite a few have talked about over the past several years, but it continues to persist. It makes me wonder if there could be some kind of fix.
What happens when you mix Steve Rogers, Harvey Pekar and James Kochalka together? Apparently, the answer is Steve Rogers' American Captain, a fictional diary comic by America's favorite super-soldier that helps him try to make sense of the world in which he's woken up, sixty-plus years after ending up frozen after fighting Nazis...
We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much. The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon...
Since 1978 fans around the globe have been blasting away at the pixelated aliens of Taito's Space Invaders and its numerous sequels and re-makes. Like most classic arcade games, the title is more about fundamental gameplay and strategy than story, meaning few (if any) took a breath from blasting their falling foes to ponder their motivations...
With roughly ten years worth of reading material at their disposal, Calvin and Hobbes fans have long been content with the fact that Bill Watterson's beloved series stands on its own without licensed merchandise or an animated series...
