2120 Choose-Your-Path Graphic Novel Out in May

Out in May is an intriguing graphic novel from Avery Hill Publishing. 2120 by George Wylesol is a choose-your-own-path … well, adventure doesn’t seem the right word, as you’re a computer repairman trapped in a generic office building. You follow choices through the pages, although many of them, at least at the beginning, are very similar looking rooms and hallways. (I had a review PDF, but that is my least favorite format for these kinds of books that require jumping […]

Enola Holmes Comics Collected

From 2018-2020, IDW put out three Enola Holmes comics. They were slim graphic novel hardcovers by Serena Blasco, translated from the French. As comics, they were well-done; most of the issues I had were with the source premises from the novels by Nancy Springer. And even those were required by the young adult genre, ridiculous as they are. Now, for the price of one of those, you can get all three, with the paperback Enola Holmes: The Graphic Novels coming […]

DC Universe Infinite Puts Out One-Day Discount Today

With everyone rightly complaining about how badly Amazon has broken ComiXology — the latest annoyance is that no specific links work any more, so if you ever referred an issue to anyone with a link to that title, too bad — DC Universe Infinite, the DC-specific digital comic site, has announced a one-day discount if you’re willing to sign up for a year. They’re offering 50% off annual subscriptions for all new and returning subscribers for a limited time. You […]

Interview With Maia Kobabe, Author of Gender Queer: A Memoir

Gender Queer: A Memoir began as Maia Kobabe’s attempt to explain to eir family what being nonbinary and asexual meant. (Maia uses e/em/eir pronouns.) The autobiography touches on gender identity, coming out, and a personal transformative journey. Maia answered a few questions about the book over email; this conversation took place over a year ago, before the recent attempts to ban her work. Gender Queer has the feel of someone sharing their diary. Can you share your approach to the […]

The Legion of Super-Heroes in Reprint Form

With today’s publication of Legion of Super-Heroes: Before the Darkness Volume 2, I thought it was a good time to check and see how much of the LSH’s storied history is now easily available in reprint form. (If you’d like a more content-based history, I put together a slideshow four years ago about the team and its history and key stories.) The original reprint series was The Legion of Super-Heroes Archives, 13 volumes in all, covering from the team’s debut […]

Where’s the TCAF Website?

I was excited to see that the Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) will be returning in person this year (June 17-19, 2022). It’s one of my favorite comic shows, and I am eager to make plans. However, that’s been difficult. At four months out, the show has recently put out calls for exhibitor registration and programming ideas, but both have been made as Facebook posts that link to Google docs. The website, which used to be at torontocomics.com, errors out. […]

Action Lab Entertainment Sued to Nullify Contracts

Last year, a lot of scuttlebutt was going around about Action Lab Entertainment treating creators badly, delaying payments, and abusing contract terms. (A lengthy summary can be found at Women Write About Comics.) Now it has been reported that “Nearly 40 content creators have signed on to a proposed class action in which they allege beleaguered comic book publisher Action Lab Entertainment has fallen far short of satisfying a laundry list of contractual obligations.” These obligations include timely payment, promotion, […]
