If you like a good freak show along with comics, you need to check out Comic Con Denver. This year will be the second time it will be held here and this time Stan Lee will be there, along with many other well-known cartoonists. But half the fun is the people watching: fans lose all […]

Have you ever wondered what would happen if superheroes could lift themselves from the pages of comics and enforce justice? Well, thanks to Brazilian-based graphic designer Butcher Billy, you don’t have to. The series entitled The Superhero Media Crossover Project replaces actors in superhero movies with their original forms – 60’s and 70’s drawings of latex clad, crime fighters. We think it looks pretty rad. Which one is your favourite?
Working with vintage paper ephemera—comic books, victorian illustrations, magazines, prayer cards, and old dictionaries, Philadelphia-based collage artist Greg Ephemera Trout breathes new life into forgotten images. Each work captures a decisive moment in a narrative left almost entirely to the viewer’s imagination.
When the Chickens Revolt is a seriously sweet webcomic. Aptly described as the ‘combined insanity of Sam Keith and Jonathan Wayshak’, it is an ever-changing story that boggles the mind, confusing a reader in the best way. The artwork alone makes this webcomic worth checking out. Jonathan Wayshak, with his crazed style and intense attention to detail, makes this comic a treat for the eyes.
Comic anthologies are a great way to be introduced to a variety of artists, whether they’re legends in the industry or new and upcoming. Horror anthologies, however, are a breed all in their own. The trend is coming back and it’s well deserved. I am thrilled. Ghosts #1 features brilliant work from Paul Pope, Rufus […]
Long considered the art world’s Clown Prince of Crime — actually, that’s totally made up — Mitch O’Connell combines a Lichtenstein-like philosophy with Dick Dale’s surfer sensibility. No, really. O’Connell’s versatility, ranging in styles from the graphic to the realistic, combined with a sense of humor best described as “fart joke mod,” make the truly cerebral nature of his work that much more entertaining.
Powerpaola was part of the same residency in Brazil myself. We had a lot of fun drawing together at one table. Her work and sketchbooks are wonderful and her output is incredible. She made a comic book called Virus Tropical about her first 18 years of life, which I am looking forward to reading soon.
How many dates happen every night in New York City? Some of them might be perfect and romantic. Some of them might be awkward or ridiculous. Some of them might be worth telling. This project started with a bunch of friends sharing their most memorable dates in comic strips. If you have a good story, please share.
If you’re a fan of the weird and wonderful, you’d be stupid not to check out the work of Murray Somerville. His quirky illustrations transport you to a surreal and humorous world, and have appeared across a range of zines, comics, t-shirts and even Becks bottles.
Could it be that America’s foremost superhero is turning his back on the country that made him fly? In more ways than one. It’s been reported that in The Incident, a short story in Action Comics #900, the caped crusader (no, not that one) tires of the political mess he’s embedded in and decides ‘to […]
Old City Blues is a cyberpunk mystery comic with the mood of a Noir tale, the fast-and-furious action of Japanese animation, and kinetic artwork that reads more like a big-budget sci-fi movie than a comic book. Old City Blues tells the story of a futuristic Athens, Greece, and the police force that navigates through the criminal life that dwells in it. Think Moebius and Paul Pope collaborating on a southeastern European blend of ‘Blade Runner’ and ‘Akira’, but with more giant robots.
Twelve Greek comic artists have come together to bring more absurdity to this world. They all use the same 4 four-panel format. Now, all you have to do is read while drinking your morning coffee.
Warren Ellis is beloved of many comic fans for his wryly funny and occasionally sickening visions of a future dystopia. His current ongoing project is published online in weekly installments and completely without charge. A post-apocalyptic saga concerning a band of psychic British punks, FreakAngels is illustrated by Paul Duffield in a flat, line-heavy style tinged with fantasy-anime that sets the series apart from the look of mainstream print comics.
