Nice art: Josh Tierney, Afu Chan and Giannis Milonogiannis are back with HaloGen

Have I ever told you I love http://afuchan.tumblr.com/? Maybe I have but let’s say it again: I love Afu Chan! His art has the popular post-Moebius line mixed with action packed layouts and weirdly angled figures that are just irresistible and his character designs are gorgeous. It’s surprising he hasn’t gotten a lot more attention, but his output has been rather limited. I loved his work on Spera and his illustrations, and now he’s back with HaloGen, written by Spera’s Josh Tierney ; Giannis Milonogiannis (Prophet, Old City Blues) is a co-creator of the series and contributes covers.

Review: Friends with and without feathers flock together in Feathers #1

Feather's issue #1 cover

Writer/Artist/Creator Jorge Corona gives us a lot to chew on in issue one of his new series Feathers: there’s a disembodied duo who appear only in voice over; a gleaming white-walled citadel surrounded by poorer districts and a class system to match; a faceless, whistling villain who preys on children and never forgets his muffler; and, of course, a little boy covered in the feathers that gives the book it’s name.

Josh Tierney’s Spera is one of the best looking webcomics/graphic novels out there with work by a bevy of amazing artists such as Emily Carroll, Michael Dialynas, Meg Gandy, Cory Godbey, Amei Zhao and Sam Bosma….and more. The web versions have been collected by Boom/Archaia into three hardcovers thus far. And now an all new […]

Boom! Studios gets ‘innovative’ first look deal with Fox

Somewhere in the Long Slog Of 2013’s Comic Book Movie summer, I probably suggested that 2 Guns might end up being the most important film in terms of how Hollywood deals with comics properties (relatively low budget non superhero fare); how true that will be remains to be seen but it DEFINITELY was the most important film for Boom! Studios. They’ve just signed a first look deal with 20th Century Fox, that, at least in the hype rollout, sounds promising in terms of how it involves comics creators:

Here’s All Our News from SDCC in One Place

One of the things heard most frequently this weekend online was ‘why is there no comic news coming out of SDCC’? You mean aside from the masses and masses of comics news which came out of the convention, right? The Beat covered basically every single comics company you can imagine, and we’ve still got a […]

Boom! Studios acquires Archaia

Well, well. While the general state of comics is pretty healthy these days, there had been one company whose well-being we continually heard whispers about, and that was Archaia: an ill-timed move to a bookstore distributor two years ago left them with massive returns and a lot of cash flow problems. None of these ever […]
