Doctor Who: Thirteenth Doctor Comic Will Have 13 Covers (Duh)

Titan Comics is excited by the new Doctor Who, played by Jodie Whittaker. They’re launching a new series, Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor, which will debut with a #1 on November 7. It’s written by Jody Houser and illustrated by Rachael Stott. No plot information is available — before the new Doctor’s show debuts, I would imagine the BBC would be cross with that — but we know that she’ll be accompanied by her TV companions: Graham (Bradley Walsh), Yasmin […]

Age of Bronze Reissued in Color

When it came out last decade, Eric Shanower’s Age of Bronze was a masterwork. Retelling the Trojan War humanized it and brought the history to life, and his gorgeously detailed art was a pleasure to read. On Wednesday, the first collection, A Thousand Ships, will be reissued in color, done by colorist John Dallaire, which should expose the story to a new audience. You can see some of this beautiful work in the selection of preview pages below.

Beasts of Burden: Wise Dogs and Eldritch Men Preview Pages

I’m late running this, but the art is so lovely I don’t think it matters that Beasts of Burden: Wise Dogs and Eldritch Men #1 came out two weeks ago. Written by Evan Dorkin and illustrated by Benjamin Dewey, the four-issue miniseries continues the Eisner-winning series about dogs that fight magical creatures. Here are the two covers as well as five preview pages. Dewey does a terrific job capturing realistic dogs while giving them the expressiveness they need for the […]

Not Just Good Art, But Neat Web Presentation

The New Yorker has an online article about a little-known painting by Charles Addams featuring his famous Addams Family characters at the beach. It’s a nifty little discovery, and I always enjoy seeing more of his work. (The Addams characters first appeared in The New Yorker, by the way, in 1938.) What’s neat, beyond seeing a cartoon-ish seasonal piece of art, is how the site presents the painting. The second half of the article analyzes the layout and some of […]

Should Sex Work Be Illegal? A Comic

Erika Moen and Lux Alptraum put together a comic called “Feminists Should Support Decriminalizing Sex Work. Here’s Why.” It’s great cartooning and insightful education on a topic many people haven’t thought about. To keep the focus on the content instead of prurient images, sex work is represented as a red umbrella, an excellent choice of symbolism. Although there’s a lot of text in this piece, as there needs to be, the images contribute understanding instead of simply illustrating what’s being […]
