First Look: Dark Horse Announces Ethan Young’s Nanjing: The Burning City

Ethan Young is a cartoonist best known for his autobiographical webcomic Tails, but he’s going to be coming out in a big way next August with NANJING: The Burning City, a full length historical comic to be published by Dark Horse. According to the publisher:

After the bombs fell and shook the walls of Nanjing, the Imperial Japanese Army entered and seized the Chinese capital. Through the dust of the demolished buildings, screams echo off the rubble. Two abandoned Chinese soldiers are trapped and desperately outnumbered inside the walled city. What they’ll encounter will haunt them. But in the face of horror, they’ll learn that resistance and bravery cannot be destroyed by the enemy.

Dark Horse provided a preview of the book, and it’s in a rugged black and white style well suited to what sounds like a grim tale. Tails has a looser, more cartoony look, but this is a little Kubert, a little Tardi…

Neal Stephenson’s Cimarronin: A Samurai in New Spain is out on Amazon today

CIMARRONIN_01_CVR_Sammelin_CLR_AAmazon’s Jet CIty Comics imprint has been chugging along with a series of comics based on predominantly SF authors. including Hugh Howey, George RR MArtin and now Neal Stephenson, whose Cimarronin: A Samurai in New Spain just came out today. It’s based in the Foreworld shared universe that Stephenson and others have been developing. Illustrated by Robert Sammelin, this is Stephenson’s first actual comics, written by him and co-suthors Charles C. Mann, Mark Teppo and Ellis Amdur. The first issue is available as a Kindle Serial and on Comixology. Future issues will come out every three weeks, with the whole story eventually collected for both print and digital.

Foreworld itself—a shared world co-created by Stephenson and Teppo—is set in a world where a European martial arts tradition has evolved, resulting in a kind of Westernized Shaolin monks wandering the world.

Cimarronin follows in that milieu, with a tale set in the early 1600’s centering on Kitazume, a disgraced outcast samurai who teams up with a roue Jesuit priest in Manila to help deliver a Chinese princess to  Mexico. Throw in silver mines, scheming folks on both the Spanish and Chinese sides and escaped alves known as  the cimarrónes and you have globe trotting adventure 17th century style. Amazon has released the cover and some process art for a look at the series.

CCS offers the The Applied Cartooning Manifesto at SPX

001_Manifesto
I just arrived at SPX and the thrill of excitement over comics is a palpable thing, as the young and the young at heart (Saw Jules Feiffer walking around) gather to talk about what they love. but making a living at what you love remains a blithely ignored question mark (at best) or a looming storm cloud that colors everything (at worst.) Addressing this, James Sturm who runs the Center for Cartoon Studies, and Marek Bennett will have free copies of The World is Made of Cheese, The Applied Cartooning Manifesto at the show. The entire PDF will be available for download this Sunday,  but stop by the CCS booth to get your own copy. Sturm writes:
[T]his conversation about making ends meet as a cartoonist has always been around (and something that I’ve explored before, re: Market Day) and seems to be on the forefront of people’s minds. At SPX, with SO many cartoonists around, it will certainly be an undercurrent. So this pamphlet is a part of that conversation.
And here’s a preview of what everyone will be talking about. 003_Manifesto 004_Manifesto

Hawkeye_vs_Deadpool_1_Cover

This sells itself doesn’t it: hawkeye takes on the most popular Marvel character of the moment in a Halloween adventure. by Gerry Duggan and Matteo Lolli with a cover by James Harren (!) and a Jason Pearson variant. ANd Cap, Black Cat and DD are all in on the fun…or are they?

The names and addresses of every active S.H.I.E.L.D. agent are about to be released, and it’s up to one Avenger and one (sometimes) X-Man to stop it. But is it trick or treat when they encounter bad guys dressed like good guys? Will Deadpool and Hawkeye kill each other before the night is through? Find out when the clash continues this October in HAWKEYE VS. DEADPOOL #1!

Nice Art: Roman Muradov’s (In A Sense) Lost and Found

InASense_Cover.jpg

Let’s end this week with some art! No publisher puts out more consistently beautiful books than Nobrow, and "(In a Sense) Lost and Found&quot by Roman Muradov is no exception. Muradov is best known for his illustrations in the New Yorker, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal; although he’s been in mini comics and anthologies before this is his first graphic novel.

Like all Nobrow books, Muradov’s debut is graphically sharp, with block of bold flat color giving shape to his delicate drawings; a kids book style all grown up. The story is a fable involving innocence as a tangible object, sending the hero on an ephemeral quest — it’s the kind of imaginary yet evocative tale that comics are great at capturing.

(In a Sense) Lost and Found goes on sale September 9.

Preview: POP #1 by Pires and Copland, a stylish thriller with added social commentary

pop1.jpg
Among the selling points of this news mini-series from Dark Horse is that it’s “creator owned.” It’s also got a nice throwback look, with flat, chunky color replicating the primitive (yet still relevant) coloring techniques of the pre-scanning era.

Written by Curt Pires and drawn by artist-to-watch Jason Copland, it’s a thriller set in a world where celebrities are literally manufactured by the ultra-rich and powerful. When one of them escapes, a five issue mini series breaks loose.

Pop #1 is on sale August 27th.

Liked Guardians of the Galaxy? Check out this preview of Thanos: The Infinity Revelation

Thanos_The_Infinity_Revelation_OGN_Cover.jpg

And their also releasing a bunch of comics that will keep the characters as fresh on the page as the screen. Among them is Thanos: The Infinity Revelation, a standalone graphic novel by Jim Starlin, the greater of GotG mainstays such as Gamora and Thanos. To make sure movie fans are aware of the book, Marvel has just released a newly lettered preview of the book, which goes on ales next Wednesday, 8/6. The story features Thanos and Warlock in the kind of cosmos battle for life and death Starlin is best known for, with guest stars along the way: the Guardians of the Galaxy, Silver Surfer, the Badoon, the Annihilators and—because this is a book by Jim Starlin—Death.

The book is part of a new line of oversized, original Graphic novels—a genre Marvel hasn’t had much presence in in recent years, but one they are putting some muscle behind. THe book also includes a code for a digital edition redeemable via the Marvel Comics app or online at the Marvel Digital Comics Shop.

Previews: Megahex, Gast and Masters of Comics

Fantagraphics has released a bunch of previews of their summer hits, including Simon Hansellman’s Megahex, Carol Swain’s Gast and the Drew Friedman cartoonist portrait books, Heroes of the Comics. And here for your pleasure are the previews.
megahex-fc

MEGAHEX
Megg is a depressed, drug-addicted witch. Mogg is her black cat. Their friend, Owl, is an anthropomorphized owl. They hang out a lot with Werewolf Jones. This may sound like a pure stoner comedy, but it transcends the genre: these characters struggle unsuccessfully to come to grips with their depression, drug use, sexuality, poverty, lack of work, lack of ambition, and their complex feelings about each other in ways that have made Megg and Mogg sensations on Hanselmann’s Girl Mountain Tumblr. This is the first collection of Hanselmann’s work, freed from its cumbersome Internet prison, and sure to be one of the most talked about graphic novels of 2014, featuring all of the “classic” Megg and Mogg episodes from the past five years as well as over 70 pages of all-new material.

GAST

Helen is an amateur bird watcher and naturalist who lives in a rural community in Wales. When local farmer Bill tells Helen that a “rare bird” named Emrys killed himself at Cuddig farm, she decides to investigate. One of the dogs at the farm tells her, by way of explanation, that Emrys “had no feathers and couldn’t fly.” She plucks an old cosmetic kit from a dumpster and discovers it belonged to Emrys. Inventorying the kit’s contents, she finds a spent .12 gauge shotgun shell. Her attempt to learn more about Emrys turns into a journey of self-discovery and ultimately a hard-fought reconciliation with the world — as it is. Carol Swain’s Gast is the rare kind of contemporary graphic novel that critics are conjuring when they exult over the promise of the art form — a philosophically mature vision, uniquely executed by an artist wholly in control of her craft. In Gast, Helen’s inner life is slowly revealed through a mixture of naturalistic detail and phantasmagoric occurrences.

HEROES OF THE COMICS
Featuring approximately 75 full-color portraits of the pioneering legends of American comic books, including publishers, editors, and artists from the industry’s birth in the ’30s, through the brilliant artists and writers behind EC Comics in the ’50s. All lovingly rendered and chosen by Drew Friedman, a cartooning legend in his own right. Featuring subjects popular and obscure, men and women, as well as several pioneering African-American artists. Each subject features a short essay by Friedman, who grew up knowing many of the subjects included (as the son of writer Bruce Jay Friedman), including Stan Lee, Harvey Kurtzman, Will Eisner, Mort Drucker, Al Jaffee, Jack Davis, Will Elder, and Bill Gaines. More names you might recognize: Barks, Crumb, Wood, Wolverton, Frazetta, Siegel & Shuster, Kirby, Cole, Ditko, Wertham… it’s a Hall of Fame of comic book history from the man Boing Boing calls “America’s greatest living portrait artist!”

PREVIEW: The Supperannuated Man by Ted McKeever

TSM_01_CVR-FINAL_web

At the Beat WE LOVE TED MCKEEVER. And here’s his latest, on sale next Wednesday, The Superannuated Man, which we’re told:.

By the time most people realized it, they were no longer in charge of the world we know. In an unspecified future, the small seaside town of Blackwater has now been taken over by advanced and mutated animals. Most of the humans that lived there are now either dead or gone, but one old man remains—a man called HE—who scavenges off the scraps and refuse of humanity’s past on the outskirts of Blackwater, and doggedly defies the new tenants.

Magnetic Press announces DOOMBOY by Tony Sandoval…and here’s a preview

DOOMBOYcover3.jpg

Magnetic Press continues its mission to bring a bunch of great looking French comics to the US with announcement they’ll b publishing Tony Sandoval’s DOOMBOY, an official selection at the 2012 Festival d’Angouleme and winner of the “Coup de Coeur” Youth Jury prize. Magnatic’s first ever English edition will be out in September.

The story concerns an ordinary teenage boy who loves metal music. After his girlfriend dies, he becomes Doomboy, and plays heartfelt music to her. But when other people hear this music, “Doomboy” becomes a legend.

Sandoval is known for his other books Nocturno, The Corpse And The Couch, and his most recent work, The Sea Serpent.

As you can see from the six page preview below, Sandoval’s work, in addition to being gorgeous, is a teeny bit reminiscent of the recent hit Beautiful Darkness. French comics have been a hard sell in the US for a long time, but I think that is changing quickly because of more comics in a more up to date style.

More information is available at the Magnetic website.

Nice Art: Marvel offers some Elektra previews

Elektra_1_Cover
Normally I’m not in favor of digging up characters who were done perfectly by their creator, but Elektra has been revived so many times, we might as well give it a go again—this time as part of Marvel’s experimental push for female-led titles. This new version comes out in April and features writing by Haden Blackman and are by Mike Del Mundo. In fact these pages by Del Mundo look pretty sharp and remind me of….another book with a female lead.

A life spent in silent pain has led Elektra Natchios to the brink of despair. But as the crimson-clad assassin prepares to shed her blood-soaked past and take the next step, everything you know about her will change in an instant! Death is no escape, but she will find her way as a new option opens up that will take Elektra to places no other hero will go!

Nice variant covers by Paolo Rivera, Bill Sienkiewicz and Skottie Young though!

Preview: ALL-NEW DOOP #1 by Milligan and LaFuente

 

All-New_Doop_1_CoverThe Milligan/Allred run on X-Statix from 2002-2004 is often looked back on as an example of the freewheeling creativity that Marvel had for a brief period before worries about selling characters to the movies forced things to button down. But of late, that quirky streak seems to have returned—perhaps because we live in a world that is eagerly awaiting a Guardians of the Galaxy movie and Rocket Raccoon is soon to be turned into a Disney ride (metaphorically speaking.)

Anyway here’s a look at ALL-NEW DOOP #1 written by Peter Milligan with art by David LaFuente, a cover by Mike Allred and a variant by Adi Granov.

Who is Doop? Actually…what is Doop? Living in the margins of the X-Men, Doop’s origins have always remained shrouded in mystery as he hovered around with his video camera – freaking out readers and fellow X-Men alike. But his time has finally come! Where did Doop come from? What is he? All your questions will be answered! And this adventure will prove once and for all that Doop is, in fact, the most powerful X-Man! From the pages of the blockbuster X-Men crossover Battle of the Atom comes the story you didn’t see! Did you know Doop was an integral part of stopping the evil X-Men from the future? Don’t believe us? You will!

 

ALL-NEW DOOP  #1 goes on sale April 9th.

PREVIEW: THE ELTINGVILLE CLUB #1 takes on Fake Geek Girls and so much more

EltingvilleClub -- essential.jpg
Hold on to your pogs. Dark Horse has just released a preview of ELTINGVILLE CLUB #1 by Evan Dorkin the first part of a 2-issue mini series that does for the members of what True Detective episode 8 did for Rust and Marty.

And from reading these pages you can see that Dorkin’s satire is as painful, pointed and accurate as ever.

In an interview at Newsarama, Dorkin talks about wrapping up the series:

Dorkin: The four Eltingville members are based partially on real people, guys I was friends with growing up on Staten Island, we played D&D and went to see horror movies every weekend and read comics and didn’t go to the prom. Josh is a composite of two people, Pete is based on a friend of mine to a degree and also stands in for a certain kind of Staten Island resident, Jerry is a mix of several people. Bill is closest to me, which is sad, because he’s a sociopath, but all the characters come out of me to a degree, obviously I’m the geek wellspring for them even if I don’t act like them.

Another can’t wait!
