Noelle Stevenson is the future. Nimona, her celebrated and fantastical webcomic about a villain's shapeshifting sidekick, will be published as a graphic novel by HarperCollins in 2015; Lumberjanes, the Boom Studios series about a group of girl adventurers that she co-writes with Grace Ellis, has been promoted from miniseries to ongoing; Marvel has just announced that she's writing a story for the upcoming Thor Annual #1; and she's a writer on Disney’s Wander Over Yonder cartoon.
You're going to see a lot of Noelle Stevenson in the coming year. She's an outspoken, accomplished, and driven talent, and it's no surprise that everyone is suddenly taking notice. To better understand one of the industry’s most promising talents, ComicsAlliance sat down with Stevenson to talk about the indie scene, going legit, and the trials of a changing industry.
We've been looking forward to Powerpuff Girls creator Craig McCracken's new animated series Wander Over Yonder since it was first announced early last year. The show, McCracken's first since Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends concluded in 2009, follows the space-faring adventures of an uncommonly cheerful alien called Wander and his distinctly downbeat sidekick Sylvia as they travel the universe fighting the forces of hatred -- embodied by the villainous Lord Hater. 30 Rock's Jack McBrayer voices the title role.
This week the Disney Channel released an early look at the Wander Over Yonder title sequence. Featuring a kind of crazy original theme song by Two Man Gentleman Band (whose Andy Bean also composes the series' music), the intro is a frenzy of textured, otherworldly imagery and gradient-heavy color, signifying an ambitious step up from McCracken's typically flatter palette and rendering style.
