Artist Gisèle Lagacé announced on her Facebook page that Pixie Trix Comix and its collection of webcomics, including Menage a 3, Dangerously Chloe, Eerie Cuties, Sandra On The Rocks, Sticky Dilly Buns, and Magick Chicks, will stop by January 2019. While money is cited as a major issue, Lagacé made a point to note that Menage a 3 had an end planned out around Volume 10. Here is the full text of her post.
The Betty Boop series from Dynamite may have flown under your radar, but it has a creative team that screams for you to consider buying this collection. Roger Langridge has written great comics, some of which he's drawn, and is capable of writing not only comedy, but some stories that you can really get into. Gisèle Lagacé has an art style that lends itself to a variety of stories, as shown by her work on Jem and the Holograms and her own webcomic, Ménage à 3. SHe can take a fun story and inject it with all the humanity needed to keep you pulled in. I'm personally looking forward to re-reading this series in one sitting.
Canadian comic artist Gisèle Lagacé, known most recently for her work on Jem And The Holograms, Archie Meets The Ramones and Betty Boop, was scheduled to be at Artist's Alley and the IDW table at C2E2 in Chicago this weekend. Unfortunately, she won't be there due to problems she encountered at the US Border with Canada. Here is the full recounting she shared on her Facebook page.
Archie Comics sent us a preview yesterday of Archie Meets The Ramones. I was looking forward to reading it, as I'm a fan of both Matthew Rosenberg and Gisèle Lagacé. Archie Comics has become one of my favorite publishers as well, but I was initially apprehensive about how this special crossover would be in execution, as Archie crossovers always seem a little odd. I blame the Punisher and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Nevertheless, the creative team looked awesome, and I've always been a big proponent of the concept that no idea is bad if it's executed properly.
Josie and the Pussycats is the fifth title in the New Riverdale series, provided you count the digital-only Kevin Keller series set a few years in the future. This series puts the girl group in matching cat-themed outfits into the more contemporary world Mark Waid has set the stage with, no pun intended. Without further ado, let's get to the review and see if the new series holds up under scrutiny.
At SDCC 2016, Dynamite announced a new Betty Boop series written by Roger Langridge and drawn by Gisèle Lagacé. Since we've already stated for the public record this week that Gisèle Lagacé is one of our favorite artists, we're thrilled to share some of the artwork that she shared through Facebook, and from Comics Alliance, who ran the preview pages. Colors on the last preview page are by Maria Victoria Robado.
Archie Meets Ramones is at first glance another Archie crossover that feels unlikely and a little forced like crossovers with Predator and Sharknado. This one has some of our favorite people on the creative team and looks so promising, if for no other reason than the musical history Archie has in the comics, even though it does seem miles away from the Ramones. Co-written by Matthew Rosenberg and drawn by Gisèle Lagacé, the comic looks worthy of at the very least giving a try. If it were being put together by a standard Archie creative team from four or five years ago, we would probably not even mention it, but those names connect to it make it worth checking out.
The comic book anthology is a tradition that Dark Horse knows well. One of the titles that put the publisher on the map is Dark Horse Presents. The anthology genre seemed to vanish with the near-implosion of the comics industry in the 1990s. It seems that with increased interest in comics, the anthology is making a comeback. It comes with the influence in the industry of a wide variety of female creators. Dark Horse has announced for October 2016 a new anthology from female creators, The Secret Loves Of Geek Girls.
