It’s a special episode of the Wayne’s Comics podcast, with two great interviews!
First up is Dean Haspiel, one of the creative forces behind The Fox at Red Circle/Archie Comics. We talk about this successful series, including how it came to be and how unique this title is compared to other comics available today. If you aren’t reading it, now’s the time to get on board with this excellent title!
I interview Dennis Culver next, and we chat about Edison Rex, a great book available through Monkeybraincomics.com, one of my favorite producers of comics! Dennis chats with me about the upcoming 12th issue in the series, and what that milestone means to the creators! He also points out some fun Easter eggs for fans you can find in the book, which I highly recommend!
Both The Fox #2 and Edison Rex #12 will be available on Wednesday, December 4, so don’t miss them!
No episode next weekend due to the celebration of Thanksgiving, but I’ll be back the following week!
Eisner Award winning writer Mark Waid (Daredevil, Thrillbent) and Emmy winning writer/artist Dean Haspiel (Billy Dogma, HBO’s Bored To Death) are teaming up to launch a brand new series – THE FOX. Taking place in the Red Circle universe, this exciting creative team will deliver an innovative, action-packed superhero story starring the fabled pulp hero.
IDW has gained a reputation of being the home of comics based on well known properties. With everything from Transformers to Doctor Who being under the IDW banner, this reputation is well earned. This includes the cult-followed Mars Attacks. Having only a short four issue run, its back with a forty nine page, holiday themed, one shot. Do martians and holidays mix? Find out after the jump!
My jealousy for those able to attend all the great comic book convention continues to grow whenever I see the panel, signing, and booth schedules for the various publishers.Â Image Comics has sent its rundown, and there are plenty of things for Image fans to do this weekend.
Throughout the convention the Image Comics booth will be home to signings galore, a convention exclusive cover of the superhero debut JERSEY GODS and an array of creators including Rob Liefeld (YOUNGBLOOD), Whilce Portacio (SPAWN), Frank Cho (LIBERTY MEADOWS), Richard Starkings (ELEPHANTMEN), Glen Brunswick (JERSEY GODS), Josh Williamson (JOHNNY MONSTER) and Vinny Navarette (DEAR DRACULA).
It was bound to happen as comic publishers move their content online in hopes of moving their readers there as well – web only exclusive content.Â Marvel has announced Monsters, Myths, and Marvels: Galactus will be a web only title for the company’s Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited subscribers.
This new digital comic initiative comes after the recent success of two exclusive digital comic tie-ins to the Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk movies. Digital-only exclusives will be published regularly on Wednesdays at the pace of three or more comics per month, adding to the ever growing collection of over 5,000 digital comics already online.
Take the jump for a rundown of upcoming exclusive online content from Marvel.
The webcomics collective site The Chemistry Set is moving from the Interwebs to the bookstores when it brings the anthology series, No Formula: Stories from the Chemistry, to print in August.
“There’s no better way to celebrate our Terrible Twos than with a big release like this,” said Jim Dougan, an original ChemSetter approached by Desperado publisher Joe Pruett to edit the anthology. “The only problem was choosing from among the literally hundreds of pages of great comics we’ve got on the site. Joe wanted only self-contained stories, though, so while that unfortunately left out a lot of great stuff, it helped me narrow it down. Are these the best 120 pages of comics ever to appear at the ChemSet? No. Are they the 120 pages that fit together best as a book? I think so.”
The anthology will contain 12 stories from the two-year history of the website and will feature both black and white and color tales.
You can not escape the myriad of schedule and booth signing posts on this site!
Next up – Image Comics!
“For whatever reason New York has been a tough city to hold a convention, but the folks behind the New York Comic Con have pulled it off better than anyone could imagine,” said Image Comics Publisher Erik Larsen. “I’ve really enjoyed every year I’ve attended and thought it was long past time Image Comics had a complete set up, including one of our now famous Image Comics Shows!”
