High Crimes Available Again, an Extreme Thriller

I don’t know what happened to Monkeybrain Comics — the digital publisher had a substantial launch in 2012 and put out some exceptional titles from well-known names, but with the exception of a few Bandette issues, hasn’t released anything since 2016 — but one of their best series, High Crimes, has a new edition coming from Image Comics next year. High Crimes, written by Christopher Sebela (Crowded, Heartthrob) with art by Ibrahim Moustafa (Mother Panic, James Bond: Solstice), is a […]

We May Finally Get a Collection of the Infamous Five Years Later Legion of Super-Heroes

A fan on Facebook found this listing on the international sales site for Penguin Random House. Apparently, we’re finally going to get a collection of the infamous “Five Years Later” Legion of Super-Heroes run next July. Also known as Volume 4 of the series, it was published from 1989-1994 (when the series was rebooted by Zero Hour after 61 issues). It was drawn by Keith Giffen and co-written by him and a fan couple, Tom and Mary Bierbaum. Giffen had […]

A New Andi Watson Is Always Worth Reading

I’m thrilled to hear that Gina Gagliano at Random House Graphic will be publishing a new Andi Watson graphic novel! I have loved everything of his I’ve read, from the early works such as Slow News Day and Breakfast After Noon to the more recent kid-focused books Glister and Princess Decomposia and Count Spatula. Forest of Shadows, due 2020, is about a boy who “finds himself in a magical forest filled with untrustworthy creatures and spirits” when he gets lost, […]

Win Copies of XXth Century Murders Black Dahlia and Axe-Man!

I have, as a prize pack for a lucky reader, a set of Black Dahlia and The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans, both by Rick Geary, both part of the Treasury of XXth Century Murder true-crime graphic novel series, and both new in paperback. (My thanks to the publisher for providing the copies.) Geary does a fantastic job laying out what’s known and unknown of these cases. The first is likely better known, about a woman trying to make it […]

Sleepless Ends With Issue #11

I really like Sleepless, the incredible fantasy series by Sarah Vaughn and Leila del Duca. It’s got wonderful characters, an intriguing premise (what if a knight could give up sleep to better protect his princess?), strong world-building, and political intrigue that makes me want to know more. Now comes word from del Duca that the final issue is in sight. Just started inking the very last page of SLEEPLESS. This page has all of the elements I loved to draw […]

It’s Alive Leaves IDW Next Year, Previews Family Man

Drew Ford launched It’s Alive in 2016 as a publishing imprint dedicated to reprinting comics by classic creators. (Previously, he did something similar for Dover Publications.) It was Kickstarter-funded with later distribution handled by IDW. Titles have included Red Range by Joe R. Lansdale and Sam Glanzman, Trina Robbins’ adaptation of Sax Rohmer’s Dope, and The Silver Metal Lover by Tanith Lee and Trina Robbins. It’s Alive is going to leave IDW next year “to become an independent publishing operation”. […]

Image Eliminates Direct PDF Sales

As of tomorrow, Image Comics will no longer sell DRM-free digital comic versions through their website. Customers who have already purchased have until February to download. There was no press release, just an email message to existing customers, which also says Future titles will be available for purchase through our other digital vendor partners, and DRM-free versions through other services that offer it, like comiXology. Sounds as if they want to get out of the digital comic sales business, which […]

Boom! Cancels Webcomic Collection Due to Plagarism

A few days ago, Boom! Studios announced that they would be publishing a collection next May of the webcomic Husband and Husband, a (not very visually exciting) strip about two guys together that’s been running since 2015. However, creators Jonathan and Aaron Ferrara launched this month a kickstarter for another comic project called Spellbound. They funded their goal of $10,00 in under a week, but there’s a snag. If you think those characters look familiar, you have likely seen the […]
