Weekender: Philipp Meyer, 'EJ Whitaker', Poo-Eating Rabbits
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, so here’s a look back and just what’s been going on. New comics, new stories, new podcasts, new art being made — it’s all part of the ComicsAlliance Weekender!
Buy This Book: Guy Adams And Jimmy Broxton's 'Goldtiger'
If you don't know what it is going in, Guy Adams and Jimmy Broxton's Goldtiger: The Poseidon Complex has one of the best hooks I've ever seen: "Hey, did you hear 2000 AD was putting out a collection of Goldtiger? Oh, you've never heard of it? That's not surprising, it was only ever popular in Malta back in the '60s, but it was this newspaper strip about two fashion photographers who were also secret agent mercenaries. You gotta read it, though - the story behind the strip is so intense that the artist, Antonio Baretti, wound up in a mental hospital." It is, to say the least, a pretty intriguing setup. If, however, you do know what it is going in, it somehow gets even better.
2000 AD Summer Special Brings Back Space-Trucking Action
On June 24, 2000 AD is putting out the latest in their line of 48-page seasonal anthologies, and as you might expect, the Summer Special is set to feature all the usual suspects that you get in the weekly prog. There's a Judge Dredd story, of course and Rogue Trooper makes an appearance, and there are a couple of new offerings in there as well. Pretty standard stuff. And then there's the return of the Ace Trucking Company, which features an interstellar alien truck driver and his zombie pal haulin' goods across the cosmos, complete with sci-fi CB language. So, you know, this is obviously something you're going to want.
