Best Covers Ever (This Year): IDW 2016 Edition
Best Covers Ever (This Year): IDW 2016 Edition
In the latest of our galleries celebrating the best covers of the year, we're looking at the best covers from IDW. IDW maintained its impressive and diverse line of licensed properties in 2016, from Ninja Turtles to Little Ponies, as well as ambitiously expanding and collating its Hasbro properties under the "Revolution" banner, and reviving and reinventing the Micronauts, M.A.S.K., and Rom.
Corey Lewis's 'Sun Bakery' Delivers A One-Man 'Shonen Jump'
Corey Lewis's 'Sun Bakery' Delivers A One-Man 'Shonen Jump'
When Sun Bakery was announced a few weeks ago, it was described as a "one-man Shonen Jump" --- an anthology title inspired by the manga that brought the world Dragon Ball and One Piece. That is, to say the least, a pretty tall order, but in a medium that has always thrived on big ideas and bold execution, it's one that's welcome. So really, when Corey Lewis says that he's going to write and draw a bimonthly anthology series featuring three all-new stories in every issue, you sort of have to just sit back and watch that happen, and hope that it all works out for the best. The first issue won't be hitting shelves until next month, but thanks to a review copy provided by Press Gang, we don't have to just hope any more. While the Shonen Jump comparison might be shooting a little high, Sun Bakery delivers on its promise with three of the most energetic, entertaining, action-packed and unexpected stories of the year.

Weekender: Sloane Leong, Marissa Meyer, and 'Saint for Rent'
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 hirings, new podcasts, new art being made — it’s all part of the ComicsAlliance Weekender!

I don't want to call it a comeback, but Corey Lewis is set to have a pretty interesting year. Not only is he providing art for IDW's GI Joe: Deviations, in which in which he's given Cobra Commander the most sinister redesign in years, but today, Alternative Comics launched its new Press Gang imprint by announcing Sun Bakery, a bimonthly anthology series from Lewis that they're describing as a "one-man Shonen Jump," debuting in April.

Allor, Lewis On 'GI Joe: Deviations': The World Where Cobra Won
Next March, IDW is launching an event called Deviations, a set of one-shots that take five of their licensed comics - Ghostbusters, Transformers, GI Joe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and The X-Files - and ask what if - er, what would happen if things had worked out just a little differently? In the case of America's daring, highly trained special missions force, that means a universe where GI Joe failed, and Cobra Commander took over the world. That's the bad news. The good news is that since ruling a world terrified into submission is actually pretty boring, Cobra Commander is reassembling the team so that he has someone to fight again. To find out more, I spoke to writer Paul Allor and artist Corey Lewis about how they approached the story and what it's like to live in a world run by Cobra - and got a look at some of Lewis's designs for a post-apocalyptic Cobra Commander and the sensational character find of 2016, Hawaiian Style Snake Eyes.

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

Jack Kirby: A 'King-Sized' 97th Birthday Spectacular, Part 2
Jack Kirby is very probably the single most influential figure in the history of American comics. He produced countless stories in a career that spanned seven decades, inventing and re-inventing genres and styles every step of the way. He inspired generations of artists and writers; created and co-created thousands of characters; defined the visual vocabulary of superheroes; and believed in the potential of comics to be both entertainment and art, long before most people imagined these stories would be remembered past the four weeks that they sat on newsstands. This week would have been Kirby’s 97th birthday, so to celebrate, we asked some of our favorite creators and other comic pros to contribute their impressions of his characters, life, and legacy – and the response has been overwhelming. Yesterday, we posted the first set of these all-star tributes, and here's the second, even more expansive selection!
