Dark Horse Presents Ends Next Week

Next week brings Dark Horse Presents #33, the latest installment of one of the best-known and most-respected comic anthologies, and the last for a while.

Robotech #1 Coming in July

I’m not a Robotech fan — in our house, it was that thing my brother wanted to watch to keep me from seeing the classic sitcoms I preferred — but I can’t deny that it was the first, best-known anime most Americans were exposed to. Titan Comics, a leading publisher of adaptations and licensed comics, will be releasing a Robotech comic series later this summer that promises to use the classic characters. The first issue drops July 26, written by […]

The Next Nathan Hale Tackles World War II

I really love the Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales series of true-history graphic novels. I learn a lot about key historical moments, presented with plenty of humor.

Raid of No Return tells “A World War II Tale of the Doolittle Raid”. This isn’t the first war to make […]

The Guild Comics Collected in Hardcover

Remember The Guild? Felicia Day put together six seasons of web comedy shorts from 2007-2013 about a group of online gamers and their personality quirks.

Now, there’s a Library Edition oversized hardcover, labeled Volume 1, that collects the above comics […]

MoCCA Fest 2017: Some Thoughts and Pictures

MoCCA Fest 2017 was, as expected, a success, at least based on the crowds thronging the first of its two days. Typical of today’s comic arts festivals (as opposed to comic book conventions, which are more spectacle), there was a wide diversity of exhibitors — including publishers Top Shelf/IDW, Fantagraphics, Nobrow, NBM, First Second, Pantheon, and Abrams/SelfMadeHero — and attendees. Here are just a few of the moments that struck me. Cliff Chiang, here signing at the CBLDF table, was […]

Interview With Alison Sampson, Artist of Winnebago Graveyard

I recently spoke with Alison Sampson, artist of the upcoming Winnebago Graveyard, a four-issue miniseries written by Steve Niles and published by Image Comics. The first issue is due out June 14, and it can be ordered from your local comic shop with Diamond code APR17 0723.
