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.
It looks like BOOM! Studios isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Heck, they could be poised to really take off. 20th Century Fox has purchased a minority share in the independent publisher of Lumberjanes, Mouse Guard, and Irredeemable. BOOM! also has a wide line of licensed titles, but it appears Fox is in it for the original stuff, at least the chance to take it to film and television.
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.
If you're in the Los Angeles area, then you really need to check out the Power Rangers Exhibit at Gallery Nucleus. It's in celebration of the new Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic from BOOM! Studios arriving in your local comic shop on January 13. The exhibit will run from January 16-31, 2016.
On the fence about BOOM! Studios new series Kennel Block Blues? BOOM! Studios has something of a treat this weekend, right before final orders are due into Diamond. Why in the world would a publisher intentionally give an entire issue away for free before it even goes on sale?
BOOM! Studios is starting off the new year with the launch of a new mini-series from Ed Brisson and the continuation of several hit series. Fans of Munchkin will want to get the first trade paperback collection for an offer to receive an exclusive Munchkin item. Check out the BOOM! Studios Previews, and then show up at your local comic shop on (or after) January 6 for these comics.
Well, It's a bit later than the other solicitations we've gotten, but here is are the BOOM! Studios Solicitations for March. Here are the covers and full solicitations. Read it over and let your local comic shop know if something catches your eye.
One of the must reads for any science fiction fan is Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Phillip K. Dick. The most proper film adaptation is the director's cut of Ridley Scott's 1982 film Blade Runner. For a comics adaptation, you need to read the 24 issue series published by BOOM! Studios starting in 2009. It was even nominated for an Eisner in 2010 for "Best New Series." If you really wanted to read the series, tracking down all of the issues or collected editions (four hardcover, six paperback) could be daunting. BOOM! Studios has your back, releasing this week an Omnibus edition of all 24 issues in one book.
