Matt Pizzolo Covers Hip Hop His Own Way for 'Young Terrorists'
August 5th sees the release of Young Terrorists #1, an explosive political sci-fi thriller by Matt Pizzolo and Amancay Nahuelpan, as a bumper size graphic novella released simultaneously in comic and book stores. When Marvel dropped news of their hip hop variants this week, the recent discussions on race in comics grew even larger. But it turns out, Marvel aren't the only publishers who thought to combine hip hop with their output, as Matt Pizzolo told ComicsAlliance.

When world leaders are criminals… maybe the terrorists are the good guys. Black Mask Studios has an impressive slate of titles in the works for this year, and it’s nice to see that the upstart publisher is still pushing the punk envelope. Matt Pizzolo (Godkiller, Occupy Comics) has teamed up newcomer Amancay Nahuelpan to create Young Terrorists, a sci-fi thriller series that kicks off with explosive style in May with an 84-page graphic novella of a first issue. Check out the trailer, debuting exclusively on ComicsAlliance, and get a taste of what’s to come.

Black Mask's Matt Pizzolo Talks 'Godkiller' And The Future
Since co-founding Black Mask Studios with 30 Days Of Night writer Steve Niles and Epitaph Records owner (and legendary punk musician) Brett Gurewitz in 2012, Matt Pizzolo has established the company as a home for all manner of genre-busting, boundary-pushing comic books – their initial slate included the all-star Occupy Comics project, Darick Robertson and Adam Mortimer's hyper-violent sci-fi series Ballistic, Matt Miner's animal-liberation vigilante yarn Liberator, and Matthew Rosenberg and Ghostface Killah's 12 Reasons To Die. Black Mask is now in the process of launching their second wave of titles, and first out the gate is Pizzolo's return to the role of comic creator, collaborating with artist Anna Muckcracker Wieszczyk on a new incarnation of his dystopian multi-media Godkiller project. Upon its release last month, Godkiller: Walk Among Us #1 became Black Mask's first ever title to go to a second-printing, and with #2 hitting comic shop shelves this week, we sat down to talk to Pizzolo about the inspirations for the series, his collaborative process, and his vision for Black Mask as a creative and commercial endeavor.

Grant Morrison's 'Sinatoro' Among Black Mask Titles For 2015
Grant Morrison has been talking about his film passion project, a psychedelic Western called Sinatoro, since at least 2010. It was even promoted with a poster. But the writer's screenplay has ended up taking the route so many projects take on the way to becoming movies: It will be a comic first. Morrison will work with artist Vanesa Del Rey on the series, which will come out some time next year from Black Mask Studios, the comics and transmedia company launched last year by comics artist Ben Templesmith, writer Steve Niles, Bad Religion guitarist/songwriter Brett Gurewitz and Matt Pizzolo of Occupy Comics. It's one piece of a big and not too shabby slate of new comics coming from the publisher in the next year, the highlights of which you can check out below.
