DC loses Batwoman creative team

DC’s ongoing Batwoman has, since the launch of the new 52, been a series worth following. The art of J.H. Williams III is a visual punch (the splash page has never looked so good) and the writing from W. Haden Blackman has kept the excitement of the unknown that Greg Rucka brought to the character […]

About twelve years ago, when I was learning about this webcomic jazz but had no desire to do anything about it long-term, I stumbled upon a website containing a collection of what I’ve seen referred to recently as “impromanga” — a comic with a different writer/artist taking a few pages at a time, with no […]

Go-Go-Gaijin: ComiPo! Vocaloid For Comics!?

Maybe this software should be called “Comicoid”, because after five minutes of tinkering with it I realized right away who this software was for.

Trisha’s Link of the Day: iPhone + 24-hours without sleep = awesome comics story

As a writer, I love the concept and the results which come from the annual 24-Hour Comics Day events; this year’s batch was no exception. For the non-comics geeks reading this, I’ll explain briefly: Back in 1990, comics author, theorist, and now-luminary Scott McCloud dared his fellow comics artist friend Steve Bissette to draw a […]

JB’s Link of the Day: Westboro vs Batman

San Diego Comic Con is in full swing — and the Westboro Baptist Church is swinging back. What they don’t seem to realize is that geeks are used to getting picked on, and when they grow up they learn how to mock. Oh, Westboro. Don’t try to take on people who want to emulate Superman. […]

RIP: American Splendor creator Harvey Pekar (1939-2010)

When news broke on Monday that American Splendor creator Harvey Pekar was found dead in his Cleveland Heights, Ohio home, I wrote via Twitter: “I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting him in person, but [Pekar] is and will always be an inspiration to struggling creators.” Pekar is best-known for the pioneering comics series American […]

The Fitting In Room: New Wonder Woman

Forgive me, kids – when I saw that Wonder Woman had her costume updated, I went on a bender that has lasted this past week. I am here now – sober, conscious, and am no longer allowed back in Honduras. But that’s another story. From a New York Times article: The new look — with […]
