Responsible for some of last year’s most visually arresting comics in the form of Winter’s Knight: Year One, Robert Ball’s next project is going to be launched at ELCAF: ‘Dark Times’.
Astounding designer and comic-maker Kristyna Baczynski will be at ELCAF, debuting what look to be a number of new pieces. One will be her zine ‘Intrepid’ which she says mixes a short existential story with “jungle girl drawings”. Which, now there’s a combination nobody could refuse, right? She’ll also be launching a new comic called […]
Launching early for ELCAF (the full release isn’t slated until September), Jörg Tittel and John Aggs’ book ‘Ricky Rouse Has A Gun’ will be on offer at the SelfMadeHero booth. Possibly the most likely comic ever to get sued by Disney, the book takes aim at a certain familiar rodent, and the rest of his crew.
ELCAF is tomorrow, and all sorts of wonderous and startling comics and arts are going to be going on all day. Remember the Kokiri Forest from Ocarina of Time? It’s essentially going to be like that, only with more pixies floating through the sky at any given moment. It’s a magical sort of festival, and […]

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.
As announced yesterday, Skottie Young, Eisner winning artist, will be writing and drawing a ROCKET RACCOON ongoing series in July. And here’s some interior pages.
