I'm all for making comics more affordable. Sometimes that's reprints of key issues for a dollar. Sometimes it's collections like Marvel's Essentials and DC's Showcase Editions. The value format is great for collectors that try to stretch their budget to get as much as they can. BOOM! Studios has just announced a new format for their collections that makes them affordable for new readers to try out a title for collecting.
BOOM! Studios has given us a first look at the upcoming Giant Days #40. Nominated for the Eisner Awards, Giant Days is loved for its strong characterization, and a fantastic visual style that's appealing to a broad audience. It's also known for being a wonderful book for female readers, looking for something with a positive depiction of female characters.
This week, BOOM! Studios Archaia imprint published a new hardcover graphic novel, About Betty's Boob. It's one of those comics that may not appeal to everyone, but if you love good comics, especially a variety of comics, than you should give it a try. Because of the subject matter, it is for mature readers only, not because it's pornographic, but it does deal with topics that require a little maturity to understand. I'm going to try not to spoil anything, but just in case, I want to give the obligatory spoiler warning.
I know, but I couldn't resist writing the title of the article like that. About Betty's Boob looks to be a quality comic dealing with a serious issue that affects 1/3 to 1/2 of women diagnosed with breast cancer.
If you live in Los Angeles, then you should make your way to Chevalier's Books on Sunday evening and pick up a copy of Jane. While you're there, you can get it signed and meet the writer, Aline Brosh McKenna. McKenna has a great history as the screenwriter of The Devil Wears Prada and the co-creator of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Just in case you're hesitant to show up for a new graphic novel, BOOM! Studios has been thoughtful enough to send out preview pages with its press release. Just keep reading for details about the appearance and the preview pages, which look fantastic thanks to artist Ramón K. Pérez, a beautiful choice to illustrate this story.
Rocko's Modern Life is one of those Nickelodeon series that gets overshadowed by the more heavily marketed and longer-running cartoons like Rugrats, Spongebob Squarepants, Wild Thornberrys, and Doug among others. It has its own legacy and episodes like "I Have No Son" and "Unbalanced Load" still resonate in my memory with classic lines such as "NEVER!" and "Laundry Day is a very dangerous day." Fans of the series probably have found themselves using Heffer's catch phrase, "That was a hoot!" in response to jokes with friends. BOOM! Studios just announced that Rocko's Modern Life is getting a series from its all ages imprint kaBOOM! this December.
Sorry for the lateness of this. I started it on a slow day and thought I could fit in the final editing during a slow moment that never seemed to come. Love, Actually is a modern-era classic film from 2003 filled with British actors that almost everyone knows relatively well, and a few that went
Every year, in the middle of summer, hordes swarm into San Diego for a celebration that has long since outgrown its name, San Diego Comic-Con (officially Comic-Con International: San Diego). Publishers bring out exclusive variant editions of their comics to sell directly to fans and the latest to announce their exclusives, complete with images is BOOM! Studios. Here is a rundown.
Every so often, our inbox gives us a press release that screams of something that we might like. Hi-Fi Fight Club is one of those comics. Take a look at the press release from BOOM! and see if it’s something you want to give a try when it comes out in August 2017. BOOM! STUDIOS
I really like when comics delve into areas not usually covered by mainstream comics. Do you remember the last time that Marvel or DC delved into the world of roller derby? I had read the first issue, but it fresh after reading Bonnie N. Collide by Monica Gallagher, and it didn’t really click like it
I've read the first two issues of Skybourne, and was prepared to dislike it. I didn't expect to hate it, mind you, but Frank Cho's work of late has appealed to a fan base that doesn't include me. Granted, the most visible of that work has been his sketch covers and I did miss Totally Awesome Hulk when it came out. Feeling horrible about my lack of giving his sequential work a fair hearing, I sat down to read the preview copies of Skybourne that Dynamite sent us.
