Giant Days: Where Women Glow And Men Plunder #1 Preview

Since I decided to give Giant Days a try, I've been impressed enough to always give the world that John Allison has created a look whenever possible. The characters seem like real people. For a slice-of-life comic, that's a big achievement. Some of the most successful television series aren't able to master that. Where Women Glow and Men Plunder marks the first time since the comics' webcomic days that Allison has drawn a Giant Days story. From the preview sent by BOOM! Studios, the result is as magical as you would expect.

I Moved To Los Angeles To Work In Animation Coming From BOOM! Studios in December

Autobiographical comics demand an intriguing bit of storytelling in order to be worth a reader's money. Sometimes, they can have broad appeal, and sometimes they are aimed at more of a niche market.  In this day and age, publishers might be less willing to give one of these books a chance. Not so with BOOM! Studios which has made a habit not only of producing some great comics not trying for that share of the mainstream pie, but paradoxically appealing to a larger audience while looking like a niche product. I Moved To Los Angeles To Work In Animation by Natalie Nourigat is one of those books.

BOOM! Announces Legacy Edition Format

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.

About Betty’s Boob – Review

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.

Rocko’s Modern Life Coming To KaBOOM!

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.

Giant Days Pays Tribute To Love, Actually

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
