Review: Burning Fields Burns This Mother Down

BurningFields01_PRESS

Burning Fields is an analog combination of old school horror like The Thing in combination with the geopolitical drama of a Zero Dark Thirty. Where it plants its feet and sets itself apart is in the perpetual insecurity these pages bring and that is far from a bad thing.

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.

This thing is going on with a new publisher called Joe Books, and the credits on Boom! Studio’s long ago (2010) Darkwing Duck series. Yes. The Outhouse has a succinct round-up but as best as I can make out, here’s what happened:

Boom! Studios celebrates 10 years with variant covers

boom_to_years.jpg

Boom! Studios is turning 10 in 2015, as we mentioned the other day. And Publisher Ross Richie has every right to make a victory lap—he;s stayed lean and smart, put out some good yarns, picked up some game-changing licenses such as Adventure Time, and even made a pretty good movie (Two Guns.) The 10th anniversary hoopla will be marked by special variant covers. Every new launch will have a special variant “10 Years” cover … but perhaps it’s best if I quote the press release to explain what is going on, because it’s a little complicated. But I’m sure the covers will look very nice.

SIX-GUN GORILLA REVIEW: All That And More

BOOM_SIX-GUNGORILLA_001v1_A

Let’s start with that title, shall we? Calling a story “Six-Gun Gorilla” is a bold and audacious decision, one that’s guaranteed to attract a specific kind of person and give many others pause. If you come to this book cold, you will very likely either somersault with glee or scratch your head and wonder, ‘huh?” […]

Boom Studios is avoiding the San Diego news crush and doing a Dynamite by making their announcements one a day until San Diego. And the first is that Mark Waid, former editor-in-chief at Boom and author of some of their most important creator driven titles, is coming back with a new series. According to the video above it’s “one with a dear friend of mine, one of the most revered artists in comics” an artist he’s wanted to work with for a while. It’s a story that is “Dangerous” and not something another company would touch.
