McCann and Van Meter Interview

My interview with writers Jim McCann and Jen Van Meter is up now at Broken Frontier here. McCann wrote Return of the Dapper Men and Van Meter wrote Black Lightning: Year One, and I’m a fan of both. The pair are scribes of next week’s Avengers Solo mini-series that sees archer Hawkeye getting the spotlight with a backup tale starring Hank Pym.

Look for the first ish on shelves on October 26.

Nathan Edmondson News

Writer of Olympus, and The Light from Image Comics has his hands on the old Wildstorm character, Grifter. I’m not a fan of the character, but I’m curious to see what Edmondson (and artist Cafu) does with him when it debuts this week. A preview of Grifter #1 is below, and you can hear an interview with Edmondson at iFanboy.

Catch previews of Frankenstein: Agent of SHADE #1, and Red Lanterns #1 (also both out this week) here. There’s also a teasing interview with Edmondson, and artist Mitch Gerads about his next few projects, including the pair’s December releasing series here.

Finally, here’s a preview of the much anticipated fifth issue of Who is Jake Ellis? from Edmondson and artist Tonci Zonjic. WIJE? #5 lands on September 21, and somehow this slipped by me, but WIJE? has been extended from a 5 ish mini to…something longer. Good news.

The Frontiersman #27

The latest issue of the digital mag from Broken Frontier is now up, and it’s awesome, and I don’t just say that because I wrote some of the content. Not much content sure, but there’s some great stuff in the 118 pages including a run down of all 52 new series from DC, with some insightful comments from the creators themselves, features on Buffy Season 9, a history of Canadian super team Alpha Flight, the complete debut issue of Spontaneous from Oni Press and much more!

Get it here now for only $1.49!

Nate Powell Interview

Broken Frontier’s digital magazine, The Frontiersman has returned. In its latest issue you’ll find, along with many other good features, my interview with writer/artist Nate Powell. Powell’s last OGN, Swallow Me Whole won the 2009 Eisner Award, and his latest, Any Empire is just as powerful and entertaining.

You can grab The Frontiersman #26 for only $1.49 right here.

Brits on Top Week at Broken Frontier

All week at Broken Frontier will be a veritable treasure trove of articles and interviews focused on British comics, and creators. Saucily called Brits on Top, there’s already an interview with editor Calum Laird about 50 years of Commando Comics, a few creators reminiscing about great British comics (Bananaman! Yay!), Pat Mills talking about 2000AD and oh, so much more. Keep checking in to see what other goodies will show up.

Grant Morrison Interview

Comics Alliance has a pretty revealing interview with writer Grant Morrison about his work on Batman Incorporated, films and his upcoming work on the rebooted Action Comics, in which we’ll see a new, inexperienced Superman.

With Action Comics, we’re certainly dealing with a Superman that doesn’t have his parents anymore. Both Ma and Pa Kent are dead in this version, and it’s kind of like the original Superman where you saw him standing over their graves in the same way that Batman did and vowing to always fight for the right. He’s kind of a lot more isolated in that sense, even though he’s not a brooding or inward-turning character like Batman is.

Catch the whole interview here.

Sam Sarkar Interview

Now up at Broken Frontier is my interview with Sam Sarkar, writer of the new Image mini-series, The Vault. The first issue is out tomorrow and is definitely worth picking up. It’s a smart underwater mystery with a good mix of science and the supernatural, and it looks great too, with art by his Caliber: First Canon of Justice collaborator, Garrie Gastonny.

Sarkar, with his background in comics and film is an interesting guy. The interview can be read here and if you’d like to see Sarkar, you can do so at a signing tomorrow. Details for that are under the pretty pictures.

 

MEET SAM SARKAR, CREATOR AND WRITER OF THE VAULT

 

On July 27th, starting at 7:00 P.M., Golden Apple Comics will present an autograph signing with Sam Sarkar, for the release of the new comic book from Image Comics, THE VAULT.

 

THE VAULT is about a small team of treasure hunters, struggling to excavate a dangerous and legendary treasure pit before a massive storm hits Sable Island, the “Graveyard of the North Atlantic.” Equipped with all the latest technology, the scientists believe they are prepared against all of nature’s fury, but nothing can prepare them for what they are about to unleash.

 

“THE VAULT is kind of a contemporary Pandora’s Box story,” explained creator and writer, Sam Sarkar. “Though it appears on the surface to be a pretty straightforward story, it has most of its mythology buried deeply. It gets uncovered both literally and figuratively as the pit gets excavated.”

 

THE VAULT issue #1 autograph event will take place in Los Angeles at Golden Apple Comics on July 27th, 2011 from 7-9 P.M. at 7018 Melrose Avenue in Hollywood. For more information, please call 323-658-6047.
