Indie Greats Cover 'All Time Comics: Bullwhip' For Fantagraphics
Who is Bullwhip? We don't really know yet. According to the official synopsis of All Time Comics: Bullwhip #1, she's "the mysterious crimefighter sworn to keep Metro City's streets safe from villainy and violence." Which could be just about any superhero. But she's not part of just any superhero line. All Time Comics is the new superhero imprint from OG indie press Fantagraphics Books, spearheaded by brothers Josh and Samuel Bayer. Josh Bayer is writing Bullwhip, with Ben Marra penciling and comics veteran Al Milgrom inking.
Fantagraphics Launches Own Superhero Universe
Fantagraphics Launches Own Superhero Universe
If you listed every comics publisher based on how much you associate them with superhero comics, Fantagraphics would be somewhere near the bottom. The prestigious indie publisher has been around since 1976, publishing underground comics as well as beautiful collections of classic comic strips. But in spring 2017, Fantagraphics is getting in the superhero game with All Time Comics, a line of shared-universe books spearheaded by brothers Josh and Samuel Bayer.

Exclusive: Stephanie Buscema's 'Adventure Time Comics' Variant
Boom Studios has been publishing a plethora of Adventure Time comics for years now, and as totallly mathematical as they are, the tone and style typically sticks close to the TV show.

Ahead of the Adventure Time Comics' first issue later this month, Boom has provided us with a look at all six variant covers, including an exclusive first look at Stephanie Buscema's variant, available only at Fried Pie Comics.
Creators Pay Tribute To Charles Schulz With 'Peanuts' Anthology
Creators Pay Tribute To Charles Schulz With 'Peanuts' Anthology
From October 1950, when the very first installments of Peanuts was published, every single installment of the strip was drawn by Charles M. Schulz's own hand, and the only variations in the style of the characters' depictions came organically through the evolution of Schulz's own drawing style. Even when the characters have appeared outside their home strip, in various animated specials or in the Dell or Boom comic books, the animators and artists have closely aped Schulz's style. That's what makes Boom Studios' new Peanuts: A Tribute to Charles M. Schulz so compelling. It's difficult to imagine what any other artist's version of the iconic characters might look like, but this book is full of them, and being faced with these characters divorced from their creator's designs is fascinating and at times even disconcerting. It's hard to look at the realistic image of Charlie Brown by Ryan Sook on the cover of the book, staring into the eyes of the "real" Charlie Brown, and not be a little freaked out, isn't it?
Tony Millionaire's Sock Monkey Returns In Into The Deep Woods
Tony Millionaire's Sock Monkey Returns In Into The Deep Woods
Tony Millionaire's Sock Monkey stories are a superb example of the unparalleled story-telling that only the medium of comics can offer, so the announcement of a new book featuring Uncle Gabby, Mr. Crow, and Inches the doll is exciting news. For those unfamiliar with Sock Monkey, it's a strange but satisfying amalgamation of traditional, old school children's books (particularly in terms of narrative style), ostensibly following the escapades of a monkey made from a a sock, a stuffed crow, and a creepy porcelain doll, but crossing into darker themes and horror, as the eccentric, superficial innocence of the set-up meets a very human realism. Written in collaboration with animation director Matt Danners, Into The Woods finds the toys convinced that their human owner, Ann-Louise, has been kidnapped by a vicious monster dubbed the Amarok, and so they embark on a mission into the Haunted Woods to rescue her and bring her home.
