Gallery: Lots of covers for Kiss #1


  The band Kiss has a long history in comics, from their blood soaked early graphic novel in the 70s, to the new comic by Amy Chu and Kewber Baal  that’s coming out in October.

Archie’s Fan-Favorite Horror Comics Rise from the Dead this Summer


Archie had something of a creative renaissance when the publisher launched Afterlife with Archie in October of 2013 with Archie Creative Chief Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Spider-Man) on writing duties and Francesco Francavilla (Batwoman) on art. However, fan haven’t seen a new issue of the series since May. Only eight installments of the series launched between 2013 and 2015– with no […]

SDCC ’15: Archie Comics: Riverdale on CW, Vampironica returns, and all-star crew on New Riverdale Comics

Vampironica Cover by Francesco Francavilla

Archie Comics has exploded onto the mainstage of the comics world in the last few years, just as many thought they were a relic of the golden age. Series like Life With Archie and the enormously popular Afterlife with Archie, along with the introduction of the openly gay character Kevin Keller a few years prior, […]

Nice Art: Noto and Francavilla first out of the gate with Star Wars: The Force Awakens fan art


Claiming he was just so excited by yesterday’s teaser reveal, artist Phil Noto has created probably the first Episode VII fan art, integrating the John Boyega and Daisy Ridley characters and the already infamous cross hilt lightsaber in the iconic floating head style beloved of Drew Struzan and other classic movie posters.

24 Hours of Halloween: Francesco Francavilla’s 31 Days of Horror


If there’s one person who loves Halloween and scary monsters more than us it’s artist Francesco Francavilla who has been running his own 31 Days of Horror event on his twitter feed with daily art and process posts. You can more or less follow along at the hashtag #fffear but here’s a sample:

Nice Art: The Valiant #2 by Kindt, Lemire, Rivera and Francavilla


The Valiant is the lynchpin of Valiant Next, a new hopping on point for readers from Valiant. A prestige format limited series with art by Paolo Rivera, and a variant cover by Francesco Francavilla, there’s no chance we’re not going to run a preview any time it gets into our inbox. The story by Matt Kindt and Jeff Lemire doesn’t hurt either.

Nice art: The Valiant #1 by Lemire, Kindt and Rivera


The dynamic duo of Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt seems to have set up shop for some of their non-creator owned work at Valiant Comics, and new they’re joined by Paolo Rivera for The Valiant, a new four issue prestige mini-series. An they’ve got Franceso Francavilla doing variant covers as well—along with Kindt and Lemire—so it’s a nice art-a-palooza. It’s nice to see Valiant stepping out with new titles, and especially great to see Rivera back on interior art—he’s best known for his impressive MArvel covers but since stepping back from that we haven’t seen nearly enough of his stylish art around.

Over and out: Afterlife With Archie reprint cover by Francavilla


Just to give you something nice to get into the weekend with, here’s the cover for the second printing of issue #3 of the red hot Afterlife with Archie mini series by the great Francesco Francavilla. The SOLD-OUT @AfterlifeArchie #3 is going back to print to meet the growing demand: here's new 2nd printing cover! […]

24 Hours of Halloween Review: Afterlife with Archie #1


If we’re doing Halloween, then that seems like a great chance for me to catch up on Afterlife with Archie, the company’s first mature comic set in the world of their mascot. Now, I don’t know much about Archie other than “Sugar Sugar” – the comics aren’t released over in my part of the UK, […]
