Another Doctor Who Title Joins the Titan Comics Lineup

Joining their titles for the Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, Twelfth, Eighth, and Fourth Doctors, Titan Comics has announced that they will launch a five-issue miniseries for Doctor Who: The Third Doctor on August 31. Paul Cornell writes and Christopher Jones illustrates “The Heralds Of Destruction”, with the likeness of Jon Pertwee, who played the Third Doctor from 1970-1974. Cornell is known for writing episodes of the new TV series, including “Fathers Day” and “Human Nature/The Family of Blood”, as well as […]

Girl in Dior

With most graphic novels, I’m driven by the story (or in the case of non-fiction titles, the information). I love reading comics as a blend of words and pictures, using both sides of my brain at once, and too many problems with one or the other will interfere with that enjoyment, but if I have to pick the part I respond to most strongly, it’s most often the text content. Girl in Dior is a departure for me, in that […]

Threadbare: Clothes, Sex, and Trafficking

Threadbare: Clothes, Sex, and Trafficking is a fascinating read, full of disturbing information about the rise of the fast fashion industry and how the apparel trade is related to human trafficking and the jobs women have as options worldwide, especially those living in poverty. Anne Elizabeth Moore has substantially researched and written a series of essays illustrated by the “Ladydrawers Comics Collective” — Leela Corman, Julia Gfrörer, Ellen Lindner, Delia Jean, Melissa Mendes, Simon Hätussle. Unfortunately, it’s marred by its […]

The Beauty #7

Now that the first storyline of The Beauty has concluded, creators Jeremy Haun and Jason A. Hurley have decided to tell some single-issue stories “to explore the wider world” of their premise. That’s a great idea, since the strongest part of this series is the concept, of a world where a sexually transmitted disease makes you more conventionally attractive, and I’d welcome learning more about how people react. These stories are set before the events of the first arc, before […]

Goldie Vance Promoted to Ongoing Series

Like Lumberjanes and Giant Days before it, the Boom! Box miniseries Goldie Vance has been promoted to an ongoing series.

The first four issues will be collected in a bargain-priced ($9.99) paperback due out in October; that volume will be available to order in the June Previews catalog. […]

Marvel Continues Disney Tsum Tsum Push With Variant Covers in August

Tying into the August release of Marvel Tsum Tsum #1, the company has announced 20 variant covers will be released that same month, called Marvel Tsum Tsum Takeover Variants. There is a whole lot of cuteness in the images below. (Click to enlarge.) My favorites are an adorable Groot with Rocket Raccoon and Lockjaw protecting his buddies. And who would have thought that we’d see a classic Wolverine cover redone with a pile of stuffed beanie shapes? All-New Wolverine #11 […]

DC Puts New Logo on Rebirth Titles

DC last redesigned its logo four years ago in conjunction with greater expansion into home entertainment products and TV and film media. That “peel” didn’t much impress anyone, even with its different colors and textures. It was a bit drastic of a change, frankly, changing shape from DC’s traditional circles. The following chart, assembled by Brian Saner-Lamken, shows the company’s logo history. The years are, from left to right, 1940, 1942, 1949, 1970, 1970, 1972, 1974, 1976, 2005, 2012. Now, […]

Harley Quinn Movie Possibility Brings Another Female Lead

The Hollywood Reporter yesterday broke the news that “months ahead of the opening of Suicide Squad, Warner Bros. is already contemplating a spinoff for the DC Entertainment anti-heroine, Harley Quinn.” Margot Robbie plays the crazy character, and she will produce the proposed film as well. She discovered how great DC’s female characters are while researching her role, and she developed the project and brought it to Warners. Harley’s sense of weird and wacky flippancy fits right in with the attitude […]
