"I've known Joe [Casey] for years and we're both devotees of the King and his Kosmos, but Captain Victory marks our first collaboration and our first chance to indulge in some Kirby-related celestial hi-jinks together. You know the drill, space soldiers; Don't ask! Just buy!" - Grant Morrison

"There is a moment that occurs in the history of any artistic medium that truly defines it. This is one of those moments. Our sixth issue is the reason Johannes Gutenberg birthed his culture-altering invention. In the face of what we've accomplished here, even sliced bread can suck it. And on top of the massive creative achievement of having all these artists contributing to this issue, we'll also -- once and for all -- make explicit the conceptual connection that Kirby himself only hinted at in his run. The true history of Captain Victory will finally be revealed! It's all-new and it's all-gods, not to mention exposing the dark side of Victory's origins. Retailers worldwide should order big and order often." - Joe Casey

Joe Casey and an all-star roster of indy artists try their hand at revamping the old Jack Kirby property Captain Victory for a modern audience...

'Okay, lemme try to come at it from this angle... in my opinion, the simplest definition of a "bad" writer is someone who 1) can't communicate ideas effectively and 2) doesn't entertain the reader. And Kirby never, ever failed at either one of those. Obviously, he was never that kind of polished wordsmith that certain fans like to get excited about. But I would argue that some of those very same wordsmiths lack a certain visceral quality in their work that Kirby just seemed to bring forth so effortlessly. I only wish I could do what he did so well when he wrote his own stuff.' - Joe Casey

Street Angel is one of the few comics I've got that instantly inspire :D, because of the excellent combination of wtf, wit, violence and ninjas (also astronauts and mayan death gods). Also Jim Rugg is an amazing artist and seriously you guys why is there no tag for Street Angel already? I coulda sworn some of this was posted back in the LJ days.

A few weeks ago I started the occasional series of Minx posts by looking at Regifters before looking at some of New York Four/New York Five (which I intend to post more of later on because it's really bloody good).

This is a look at Plain Janes, one of only two Minx series to be given a sequel (the other being New York Four). It's by Jim Rugg (art) and Cecil Castellucci (story) and is about not only finding your place in the world, but creating a place for yourself.

The backstory is that Jane lives in Metro City at the beginning of the book. she gets caught up in a bomb explosion in the city centre and the family moves out to the suburbs. Jane vows to keep strong and not let the bomb ruin or change her life, or make her timid and afraid.

This is her first morning of school. )
