Good news below about a new regular contributor to Broken Frontier, a great comics site that, yes, I sometimes write for.
Joe Keatinge Starts Weekly Column ‘One You Want’ on Broken Frontier
Broken Frontier is proud to announce that Joe Keatinge has started a new weekly column at the site, titled One You Want. Each Monday, One You Want declares its love for a creator-owned, international or otherwise unsung comics gem that hits stores that week, and tells you why you should go get it first chance you get.
“I constantly feel a lot of the most brilliant comics get swallowed up in the PR machines of the larger companies, so I’m using the spotlight Broken Frontier has handed over to me to do my part in making sure they have a fighting chance in this ever fiercely competitive industry,” Keatinge says.
“One You Want is dedicated to seeking out the very best in comics, in whatever form they come in from whatever region of the globe, whether they’re long-lost classics or the most exciting innovations in the creator-owned world.”
As for why Keatinge chose Broken Frontier as the home of his column, he says “In my all my years of working PR with Image Comics, Broken Frontier was one of the most enthusiastic supports of untested and independent comics. They’re the perfect partner to help shed the spotlight on a lot of books people might not see otherwise.”
Says BF Editor in Chief Frederik Hautain, “We’re thrilled to have Joe join the fold. Broken Frontier has always been about giving creator-owned and independent comics and graphic novels a big push. One You Want is a very natural addition to our range of coverage.”
Joe Keatinge is the Eisner and Harvey award-winning co-editor of POPGUN and writer of the upcoming Image Comics series, BRUTAL, with illustrator Frank Cho. For the column’s first installment, Keatinge looks at Humanoids Publishing’s INCAL: THE CLASSIC COLLECTION, written by Alejandro Jodorowsky and illustrated by Jean “Moebius” Giraud. Go read it here.
Each week a lot of comics hit the stores.
Some you’ve heard of. Some you haven’t.
Some have superheroes. Some don’t.
They might be comic books, they might be graphic novels.
This is the One You Want.
