New Buffy the Vampire Slayer Comic Announced

As suspected, now that the Dark Horse Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic is done, the license is going to Boom! Studios. They have just announced details of their run. The first issue will launch on January 9, 2019, written by Jordie Bellaire and illustrated by Dan Mora. And it’s a reboot! Buffy Summers is back in high school, but the series is set current-day, in 2019. This is the Buffy Summers you know, who wants what every average teenager wants: […]

My Solo Exchange Diary

My Solo Exchange Diary is the sequel to the much-awarded My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness by Nagata Kabi. It’s a collection of short chapters — twelve, labeled as diary entries, each 10-14 pages — about living alone and becoming a comic creator as a career. To start, I should reveal that I couldn’t make it through My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness. It’s not very visually interesting — mostly background-less sketchy figures — and I found the constant “my life is […]

Archie Horror Titles Are Most of Publisher’s Continuing Series, New Titles Announced

Since it’s New York Comic Con weekend, there are plenty of announcements and news about upcoming publisher plans. Archie Comics, for example, announced that 2019 would feature two new Archie Horror miniseries. Blossoms 666 stars the twins Cheryl and Jason. One is the Anti-Christ, but they don’t know which, and both want the role. It’s five issues, with the first due in January. Archie Comics Co-President Alex Segura said, “Cullen really blew us away with his Omen-esque version of the […]

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Third Season

Review by KC Carlson DC’s Legends of Tomorrow remains my favorite of the four “Arrowverse” shows (the others are Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl), with its odd collection of mostly broken-down characters rotating in and out, and its constant feeling of the whole thing flying apart in pieces at any given moment. Their motto has now become, “Sometimes we screw things up for the better,” which captures both the optimism and confusion of the endeavor. This season was no exception, […]

Humanoids to Publish All-Ages Line With Bigby, Formerly Benjamin, Bear

I really enjoyed the Benjamin Bear titles by Philippe Coudray published by Toon Books. Fuzzy Thinking, Bright Ideas!, and Brain Storms! were clever, creative, and well-cartooned. When ICv2 ran a brief mention of Humanoids launching an all-ages line, one of the titles was listed as Bigby Bear, and it looked familiar. The titles will be out next year, with Bigby Bear scheduled for February 5, 2019. Jud Meyers, Humanoids Director of Sales and Marketing, confirmed that it was from the […]

Scooby-Doo Team-Up! #42

DC comics have a long history of featuring gorillas, apes, and monkeys. If you’d like a capsule history of just how many, check out the latest issue of Scooby-Doo Team-Up!

The mayor has called in the kids to drive Monsieur Mallah and the vampire gorilla Pryemaul out of City Hall. To help, Scooby and his friends enlist the detective Sam Simeon, Detective Chimp, and […]

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 […]
