CAPTAIN SCOTLAND IS REPLACED BY TEENAGE GIRL

First Comics News - Fri, 05/11/2018 - 14:46

Captain Scotland is back – and has been replaced by a teenage girl!

In November 2017 Scott Stewart, alter ego of Captain Scotland, returned after being away for thirty years in a short story on the http://www.ComicsFlix.org website.  His reappearance was covered in many major newspapers and media outlets in Scotland.

In the new 64 page magazine ComicScene UK, released this month, the story continues in picture strip form by artists Jose Rodriguez Mota and Valentina Mozzo with a shock revelation. In a one off story the rights to the name Captain Scotland have been claimed by a media savvy teenage girl, Ellie Shepherd, who intends to not only be a superhero for the 21st Century but have control over the potential media rights and merchandise that will follow.

Details of how you can get the magazine from shops, mail order or digital can be found at www.comicscene.org

Writer Tom J Fraser explains, “We wanted to capture the changes happening in society, not only in a retrospective way as in the ‘Back to the Future’ storyline.  We refer to the Year of Young People in the short story and we wanted to capture that spirit too.  Captain Scotland is now a teenage girl who will not only be a superhero but will attempt to take control of her own image in the media and on merchandise.  Is the corporate world and fake news more dangerous than aliens from another planet?  Future stories may have the answer.”

So what will happen next for Scott Stewart?

“He’s having a bad time but I’m sure he will bounce back.  He may look fifty but he has the drive and energy of a 20 year old.  He will take on a new superhero identity and go off on a new adventure.  More will be revealed about that and the further adventures of Captain Scotland in the one off ‘Atomic’ special due later this year.”

Atomic was a Scottish small press stripzine which lasted 14 issues in the late 80’s/early 90’s.  It featured the original Captain Scotland and a whole host of creators who went on to have successful careers in music, the arts, publishing and comics.  Many of the original creators are coming back for a one off special, 25 years after the publication ended.

Wednesday Comics: More Metabarons

Sorcerer's Skull - Wed, 05/09/2018 - 11:00

I heard there was a Metabarons comic on Free Comic Book Day, which precedes a new Metabarons series. I've mentioned Metabarons on this blog before, but for those unfamiliar with it, it's the Greek Tragedy by way of Space Opera generational saga by  Alejandro Jodorowsky that he came up with riffing off ideas from his aborted attempt to get a Dune movie made.

The original "Saga of the Metabarons" was published, complete, in English in the early 2000s. In 2014, there was a sort of prequel Metabarons Genesis: Castaka published in 2014.

Hearing about this new series, I went looking to see if I had missed something, and what do you know? I had. There are already two volumes in a series called The Metabaron. Now, I haven't read these yet myself, so I can't comment on them (though I'll have them in hand this week), but I wanted you guys to know they were out there:

The Metabaron Book 1: The Techno-Admiral and the Anti-Baron

The Metabaron Book2: The Techno-Cardinal and the Transhuman

Misty Isle of the Meanies

Sorcerer's Skull - Mon, 05/07/2018 - 11:00
Our Land of Azurth 5e campaign continued last night, with the party and friends still lost at sea after displeasing the Sea King. Their submarine had wondered into strange, dense fog. Kory Keenstep recalls legends of the mist-enshrouded paradise of Cucana and is sure they have found it. When Captain Cog sights a green and pleasant isle in his optics, it seems that Keenstep may becorrect.

When Waylon, Dagmar, and Erekose go ashore, they find the pleasantness to be an illusion. The island is gray and mostly barren and cloaked in gray skies and a sulfurous stench. Going ashore, they find paths strewn with the pulverized bits of broken toys, and occasional gray statues that look more like petrified people.

They made their way past the giant, sessile worms with lolling stripped tongues to the Blue Pagoda City. There they encountered the disagreeable blue meanies--and ended up slaughtering them in fairly large numbers. The party wandered through the bunker encountering and defeating a number of odd and violent people before apparently reaching the inner sanctum of "His Blueness."

This adventure began a loose adaptation of Chris Kutalik's Misty Isles of the Eld, liberally mashed together with the film Yellow Submarine.


Mecha & Cavemen

Sorcerer's Skull - Sun, 05/06/2018 - 14:03
The physical copies of the the English translation of the French prehistoric rpg Würm finally arrived last week. I got the main rulebook and the Voice of Our Ancestors  magazine with rules and adventures. I taked about the main rulebook pdf before. On of the Voice of Ancestors issues has rules for the benefits conferred by ritual cannibalism, which is an interesting edition. I don't know if I can convince my group to play it, but I'm not sorry I backed the Kickstarter.

Tom Parkinson-Morgan, the author of Kill 6 Billion Demons, released the latest iteration of his mecha rpg Lancer for free. I confess I have not read through it yet, but hey, it's free.

Underground Comics Contents

Sorcerer's Skull - Thu, 05/03/2018 - 11:00

Solo-parenting of a sick infant has kept the blog silent this week, but I wanted to share a bit of what I've been working on just prior to all that happening. Here's a glimpse of the most interesting part of the contents page for the forthcoming Underground Comics with work by Jason Sholtis, James V. West, Stefan Poag, Luka Rejec, Jeff Call, and Karl Stjernberg.

PORTLAND, OR, 05/02/2018 — Image Comics is pleased to announce PERDY: a new original graphic novel western series from Angoulême Award nominee, and international star, Kickliy.

A lot has changed since Perdy’s been away, especially her looks, but that’s not gonna stop her from piecing together the biggest score of gold this side of the border. And if anyone gets in her way, they’ll be pushing up petunias.

Kickliy is an international star in the field of comic books and was nominated for a 2017 Angouleme Award in France for his critically acclaimed Musnet series. This English translation of PERDY is his first work with Image Comics.

BOOM! Studios Announces Jeanine Schaefer as Executive Editor

First Comics News - Wed, 05/02/2018 - 17:29

Former Marvel Entertainment and DC Entertainment Editor Joins Company in Newly Created Role

LOS ANGELES, CA (May 2, 2018) – BOOM! Studios announced today that it has hired Jeanine Schaefer as Executive Editor. In this newly created role, Schaefer will report directly to Matt Gagnon, Editor-in-Chief, and function in a leadership role within the Editorial department while overseeing a new, yet-to-be-revealed line of titles. Schaefer’s hire leads off a series of exciting personnel changes at BOOM! Studios to be announced later today.

After earning a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), Creative Writing and Literature from Hofstra University in 2000, Schaefer has distinguished herself for over fourteen years as a influential figure in the comic book industry, discovering new voices and championing diversity both on the page and behind the scenes. Beginning her career at DC Entertainment in 2004, Schaefer was an instrumental part of the landmark 52 weekly comic book series and edited Grant Morrison’s acclaimed run on Batman, along with guiding iconic series like Robin and Legion of Super-Heroes. Schaefer later moved to Marvel Entertainment in 2008 where she played a key role in developing the groundbreaking “Women of Marvel” initiative, including the acclaimed Girl Comics limited series in 2010; overseeing the historic first gay superhero wedding in the pages of Astonishing X-Men #51, which saw the publisher partner with NYC Mayor Bloomberg in 2012; and the top-selling “Death of Wolverine” storyline in the pages of Wolverine in 2014. She was promoted to Senior Manager, Talent Relations in 2014 where she focused on discovering new, diverse voices to further develop existing and new Marvel Comics characters, drawing acclaim from outlets like NPR, Jezebel and more. Recently, Schaefer has edited critically acclaimed series at publishers including the award-nominated Jonesy for BOOM! Studios in 2015 and Motor Crush from Image Comics in 2016.

“I’m so excited to join BOOM! Studios right now, as they take the next step in their growth as a progressive voice in comics,” said Schaefer. “BOOM! Studios’ mission and outlook, their dedication to partnering with creators to expand the scope of comics and the breadth of their readership are all vital to the health of the industry.”

Added Gagnon, “This is one of the most important years in BOOM! history, as we’ve become a Premiere Publisher at Diamond Distributors and continue to expand our commitment to original stories, as well as their presence in film, television, novels, and more. Adding the powerful voice of an acclaimed editor like Jeanine to our team in a senior role provides a unique opportunity to expand our company’s creative vision. Jeanine is one of the best in the business and her addition to BOOM! editorial further strengthens one of the most dynamic teams in comics.”

This new hire is the first of several changes in the company’s Editorial department and follows other recent key personnel moves for BOOM! Studios in a historic year which has seen the launch of acclaimed original new series like Abbott by Saladin Ahmed and Sami Kivelä in January; the top-selling Labyrinth: Coronation #1 by Si Spurrier and Daniel Bayliss, a prequel to the titular film in February; the first ever Power Rangers comic book event in March’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25, which garnered worldwide media attention; and the announcement of seven prestigious Eisner Award nominations in April, highlighting series from all four of the company’s diverse imprints.

RICH REVIEWS: The Wonderful World of Tank Girl # 2

First Comics News - Wed, 05/02/2018 - 01:00

Title: The Wonderful World of Tank Girl # 2
Publisher: Titan Comics
Written by: Alan Martin
Drawn & Lettered by: Brett Parson
Cover by: Brett Parson
Variant Covers by:
Price: $ 3.99 US
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Websites: www.titan-comics.comwww.tank-girl.com
Comments: Tank Girl and all her gang are putting on a play. Why? During the play, Sub Girl gets some good and bad news. Watching Tank Girl and all the others in this play that you will have no idea what is going on in it but who cares its fun to watch. This play is a strange thing. It is a hit with the masses though.
The art looks gorgeous and seeing Tank Girl in a long formal dress is a sight to see she looks almost normal and definitely beautiful.
This issue is so different than any other Tank Girl. Jet Girl inherits an estate and fortune. Booga stays dressed in a dress the whole issue only half of which he has a reason to.  There is no killing sprees here just a lot of weird stuff going on as the gang hang out.
All the characters are shown and written in their usual craziness just without all the murder, mayhem and bullets and blood.
Here to it turns out Jet Girl and Tank Girl may be distant cousins. They do act almost like sisters.

Love Space Goat? Then Become An Investor!

First Comics News - Wed, 05/02/2018 - 00:08
Publisher of Evil Dead Graphic Novels and Games Launches Equity Fundraise Investment Opportunity Allows Fans To Become Space Goat Shareholders (May 1, 2018 – Bellingham, WA) – In a bold move to allow fans to become even more invested in a company they support, Space Goat Productions will launch a fundraising campaign via equity crowdfunder Wefunder.com. Investors will join a community of other investors who seek to help SGP expand their presence in the board game and comic book marketplaces–and own micro shares of the publisher in the process. The fundraising campaign will run for a period of 45 days. “We want to make cool stuff with and for fans,” stated Founder and CEO Shon Bury. “It’s a core tenant of our mission. Equity crowdfunding provides the perfect opportunity to show our fans how sincere we are,” he continues. “We aren’t the first comic-book company to ever offer shares to fans, but we are taking it one step further by allowing anyone to buy a micro share for just $100 and by offering our Kickstarter backers a 20% discount if they elect to buy-in at this funding round. We are also offering a great perk to comic book retailers. That’s how much our crowdfunding community and retail partners mean to us.” On May 2016, thanks to a law called Regulation Crowdfunding, it became legal for everyone to invest small amounts of money in the companies they believe in. Wefunder was created to provide an easy avenue for regular people, not Wall Street experts, to actually become stakeholders with the companies they already support with purchases. This form of funding fit perfectly into the long range plans and overall vision of Space Goat Productions and its CEO Shon Bury. This next step has been in the works for over a year.

Canadian Mint Announces Pure Silver Captain Canuck Coin

First Comics News - Tue, 05/01/2018 - 17:34
Canadian Mint 1 oz. Pure Silver Coloured Captain Canuck Coin
Mintage: 3,500 (2018)

RE-CREATES CAPTAIN CANUCK’S 1975 COMIC BOOK COVER! Order today!

More than a homegrown comic book hero, Captain Canuck personifies the spirit of Canadians by embodying self-sacrifice, determination, and integrity, and all with a full dose of humility and compassion. This comic book-shaped coin is the ultimate tribute to a Canadian pop-culture icon created in 1975; your coin re-creates elements of Richard Comely’s cover art from Captain Canuck No. 1, which introduced a new, uniquely Canadian hero—one who fights for justice and peace while wearing the colours of our nation’s flag!

A perfect coin for Captain Canuck comic book fans! Order today!

Special features:
  • COVER ART ON A COMIC BOOK-SHAPED COIN! Your coin is rectangular like a comic book and is a fitting tribute to a Canadian hero and pop-culture icon!
  • MAKING HIS COIN DEBUT! This is Captain Canuck’s first appearance on a coin!
  • RE-CREATES CAPTAIN CANUCK’S 1975 COMIC BOOK COVER! Your coin mimics the cover art of Captain Canuck No. 1, which introduced a new, uniquely Canadian hero to comic book fans!
  • CANADIAN THROUGH AND THROUGH! Both the coin and the packaging feature the art of co-creator Richard Comely!
  • SYMBOLIC COLOURS! The selective use of colour recreates the vibrant red and white of Captain Canuck’s iconic suit, which is also a tribute to Canada.
  • JULY 1, 1975: A CANADIAN HERO IS BORN! Your coin is a unique addition to any Canadian history or pop culture–themed collection.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE: The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
  • LOW MINTAGE! Limited to 3,500 coins worldwide!
  • 1 OZ. 99.99% PURE SILVER! Your coin is GST/HST exempt.
Design:

Utilizing the coin’s rectangular shape, the reverse mimics the appearance of a comic book — specifically the cover of Captain Canuck No. 1 (July 1975). Key elements from the original cover art by Richard Comely are faithfully replicated by combining precision engraving, various frostings and a selective colour application. The focus is primarily on Captain Canuck, who strikes a defiant pose as he stands on rugged terrain, while the yellow sun hangs low in the northern sky. His maple leaf suit is based on the real-life colours of the large Canadian flag engraved behind him, which further emphasizes the character’s Canadian roots. The reverse includes the engraved word “CANADA” above a corner box element bearing the face value “20 DOLLARS”; “CAPTAIN CANUCK” and “CAPITAINE CANUCK” are engraved on either side of the hero, while the year “2018” is engraved on the land mass below. A laser-engraved maple leaf pattern fills the obverse, which features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • Captain Canuck has had several alter egos and different uniform variations over the years—including his modern-day uniform, complete with armour and electrified nightsticks! But the maple leaf and colours, which mirror Canada’s national flag, have been constants since his original suit.
  • As part of a tribute to Canadian superheroes, Canada Post released a Captain Canuck stamp in 1995. It soon became the best-selling Canadian stamp ever released!
  • Transcending the pages of his comic book, Captain Canuck was also featured in an animated series.
  • Originally created in 1975, Captain Canuck was given life by cartoonist Ron Leishman and author/artist Richard Comely. The comic book’s explosive first issue introduced Tom Evans, the first Captain Canuck, whose superhuman strength and speed were the result of an alien encounter. Soon after, Captain Canuck and his sidekicks Redcoat and Kebec teamed up to battle villains such as the treacherous Blue Fox, the alien Nyro-Ka, and Captain Canuck’s arch nemesis, Mr. Gold.

“Hex Vet” Is Just What The (Supernatural) Doctor Ordered!

First Comics News - Tue, 05/01/2018 - 16:30

Discover The Magic Behind The Medicine a BOOM! Studios in December 2018

LOS ANGELES, CA (May 1, 2018) – BOOM! Studios is proud to announce HEX VET, an all-new hardcover original graphic novel from cartoonist Sam Davies (Stutterhug). In a world where magic is a part of daily life, Nan and Clarion are determined to be the best veterinarian witches of all time. Between life, animals, and magic, these two witches will soon realize that they have a lot to learn—and not just about how to help a ghost cat have kittens. This story will take Nan and Clarion on fun adventures where they will get to learn more about each other, their strengths as veterinarians, and their equal passion for magical animals. Hopefully they’ll be up to the challenge of running a clinic, saving lives, and staying on their boss’ good side!

HEX VET is centered around a magical veterinary practice which means I get to draw as many strange animals I can think of AND include a lot of witchy nonsense,” said Sam Davies. “I’m in heaven. Unusual pets are a running theme in my webcomics work, so it’s exciting to expand that into a full story with characters who are totally unprepared to deal with all the creature troubles I’m going to throw at them.”

HEX VET is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ critically acclaimed KaBOOM! imprint, publisher of world-class licensed series such as Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Over the Garden Wall, Peanuts, and Rugrats along with original series like Ruinworld by Derek Laufman, Brave Chef Brianna by Sam Sykes and Selina Espiritu and The Deep by Tom Taylor and James Brouwer.

HEX VET is the perfect comic for anyone who’s wondered where witches take their cats when they snag a tooth or who takes care of a magical girl’s familiar,” said Whitney Leopard, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Sam brings an incredible amount of heart, compassion and thrills to the story of what it means to truly care for the life surrounding us, especially when there’s magical surprises around every corner!”

Print copies of HEX VET will be available for sale in December 2018 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one), bookstores or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.

History: Ted Crawford was a petroleum engineer for Hexxon Oil, tasked with exploring a deep underground pocket wherein a material with unusual properties, dubbed the "black mass," had been found. Upon opening the chamber, the Black Mass was revealed to be a vast sea of protoplasm with an alien intelligence. Telepathically communicating with Crawford and his team, it asserted it was the first living thing on earth and all other lifeforms were ultimately derived from its substance. It absorbed all of Crawford's team, but left him with part of his intellect intact and animated his partial absorbed corpse within his environmental suit, so it could use him to explore the outside world.

The Crawford-Black Mass hybrid soon came in contact with Subterrans, who had long been aware of the entity they called the Black Void and had sought to contain it. The prince of the underground civilization, the Subterranean, battled Black Void and forced him back into the chamber then resealed it.

Later, the Black Void escaped again and was brought by agents of Hexxon to its board, who were revealed to all be members of a secret cult that worshiped the Black Mass and sought to use it to gain power. Black Void killed most of the board members and more a time took secret control of Hexxon.
