Jack Hunter’s sure-to-be-iconic cover for next week’s New Yorker hits so many notes…it’s what makes The New Yorker the New Yorker. But it was originally submitted via Tumblr for one of art director Francoise Mouly’s cover contests and had a different context. Still…it’s perfect for this moment. Enjoy the weekend with whomever you love, faithful […]

Representing comics production in popular culture has long been missing a piece of the puzzle. We’ve had excellent documentaries about ground-breaking creators like Will Eisner, characters like Wonder Woman, and even explorations of rising con-culture in the USA, but the least likely to receive attention, the mode of indie comics production right now, has come […]
The third in Kazu Kibuishi’s 15th anniversary edition covers for the Harry Potter series has just been released. Prisoner of Azkaban is the one where things really begin to heat up, and a personal favorite in both the book and film editions.

Issue #3 of THE PRIVATE EYE, the webcomic by Brian K Vaughan and Marcos Martin, is now available. As before it’s in a pay what you want model. The SF story concerns a world where there is no internet and privacy issues allow people to wear masks. So far it’s been a thought-provoking tale. The […]
It’s on! Or it will be in November, when a POSSIBLE 8 person jury gets to decide if Gary Friedrich or Marvel own Ghost Rider: Eight jurors will decide this fall if Marvel actually owns the copyright to Ghost Rider or not. That was the order (read it here) issued today by a federal judge who […]
An exciting new creator-owned comics is always a thing to celebrate, and this one is certainly packing some talent, bringing together writer Rob Williams (Amazing Spiderman, Wolverine, Star Wars, 2000AD) and illustrator extraordinaire, D’Israeli– aka Matt Brooker (Stickleback, Leviathan, Scarlet Traces, 2000AD). Like me you, may be tired of yet another spin on the superhero […]
