Valentine's Day 2015 - Another Valentines Day, at another Titan's Tower

If Dick Grayson's Robin in his New Teen Titans era has a flaw (Well he has a few, not physical of course, but character related) , it would be a certain degree of neurosis about himself and his relationships.

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose!

Preview of Lemire and Nguyen's "Descender"

I make no secret of the fact I love Dustin Nguyen's work and Jeff Lemire has a good track record, and they are working together on a series which looks very promising, and has a preview up at Comics Alliance, where Nguyen's inkwash style is being pointed in a new direction; sci-Fi.

Our hero is Tim and his pet Bandit (named, I'm going to guess, after Jonny Quest's dog.)

First glimpe of new Jem and the Holograms comic from IDW

Now amongst my other varied and sundry interests (and more of them in a forthcoming post), I have a soft spot for the old Jem cartoon (Which I now realise is almost 30 years old)... or more particularly for a couple of the aspects of the cartoon.

For those too young to remember Jem, it was the (and I say this now to avoid accidentally stumbling upon the term later on) "Truly Outrageous" story of Jerrica Benton, CEO of Starlight Records, who moonlighted as up and coming rock star Jem (With her little sister and friends making the group "Jem and the Holograms".

At any rate... there's a live action movie out next year (Which based on word of mouth is a little more low key and doesn't even include rival band The Misfits by most accounts), and in advance of that IDW have a new comic, and... it's not quite what I was expecting in terms of style....

and I LOVE that it's not what I was expecting. )

The evolution of a page - 1 preview page from Edward Scissorhands

I love that the likes of Facebook, and Twitter and Tumblr and the like mean that artists can share more of the process of their work....

Case in point, Drew Rausch's first page from the new Edward Scissorhands comic from IDW.

One page preview from Spider-Verse #1

Well, following the... let's be polite and say the furore (It's a good word, it should be used more often) over the Manara Spider-Woman cover, it's perhaps a little odd that I should be posting an interesting image of Spider woman wearing a rather visible looking, old-fashioned corset... OVER her costume...

But fret not, in this case I'm not talking about Spider-Woman... I'm talking about Lady Spider

the Steampunk Spider-Woman! )

Half of me thinks this is sacrilege...

But the other half thinks it's gorgeous!

We've seen some odd sequels over the past few years, perhaps most notably someone else writing "Peanuts" comics, but even that pales next to the chutzpah it takes to relaunch the classic, groundbreaking, 114 year old. "Little Nemo in Slumberland"

But darn me if this isn't a lovely looking take on it )
