Comic creators Martin & Maccagni bring crazy/sexy/fun action with the first tale of the weaponized dynamo… SWISS ARMY WOMAN!!!

First Comics News - Sat, 02/08/2020 - 14:57

Jason Martin — creator of current popular comics like the long running Vampblade ongoing series, and the recently debuted Amalgama: Space Zombie, as well as past works such as PRINCE-S STARthief, Night of the 80s Undead, and more — announces his latest Kickstarter, Swiss Army Woman. Which can be best described as Cherry Darling meets Batman: The Animated Series by way of Switzerland!!

This latest Kickstarter is another in Martin’s Pulp Girls series, a collection of pulp and genre inspired concepts with death-defying female protagonists and featuring different amazing and popular artists. Swiss Army Woman features the awesomely kinetic artwork of popular Italian artist, Marco Maccagni (Zombie Tramp, Vampblade, Road Trip to Hell, Monster M.D.) on interiors, along with several talented cover artists!

Upon losing her leg in a freak Olympic super-g ski accident in the Swiss Alps, a young woman is outfitted with top secret (yet all too familiar) technology, and becomes a one woman weapons program for a clandestine military from a supposedly neutral country! Now, instead of returning to her normal life, she proudly fights to defend Swiss interests at home and abroad. Chocolate Barons, Evil Bankers, and Giant Alien Clocks… all bent on world domination!! Good thing the Swiss Army have a special operative with every weapon, tool, or gadget their country requires… all attached to her right thigh! She is any tool the Swiss need, for any job her nation requires…

She is… THE SWISS ARMY WOMAN!

Martin says of the book, “Fans of beloved action cartoon franchises of the 80s and 90s will love what we’re doing here. Taking Switzerland and its rich iconography and mining that for our setting and characters. With a colorful rogue’s gallery like you’d find in Batman TAS’ Gotham, or the iconic foes from G.I. Joe A Real American Hero or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It’s all very rich to play with thematically, and really lets the character and concept shine. All-out fun in a book chock full of crazy cartoon action, that crafts something new from a myriad of popular touchstones!”

The Kickstarter is live now with base rewards such as digital and print versions of the book, as well as variant covers from popular artists, and other unique rewards. Having already surpassed its initial goal, the funding is now onto stretch rewards. Swiss Army Woman is ending soon, but available through February 12th on Kickstarter:

The Angel of Sadhill A superhero/spiritual thriller,An interview with creator Petterson Oliveira

First Comics News - Sat, 02/08/2020 - 09:05

First Comics News: Firstly, I wanna say thanks for doing this Petterson Oliveira If I may, can I ask you for some background information? Where were you born? Where did you grow up?

Petterson Oliveira: No problem. Thank you so much for having me. I was born in Brazil and lived there until my family came to Florida when I was nine. So, I kind of grew up in two places.

1st: Are you a writer, artist or both?

Petterson: I am both.

1st: Who are some of your creative influences?

Petterson: There are so many! Some come from comics like Todd McFarlane, Brian Stelfreeze, and Alan Moore and others from films like David Lynch, Melville, and the Wachoski siblings.

1st: If you could hang out with any creator who would it be and why?

Petterson: I would hang out with any creator famous or otherwise, but Brian Stelfreeze gives the best portfolio reviews, and he’s really generous with his time when it comes to young artists who need the right advice about their art. And he seems like a great mentor so I’d grab a cup of coffee with him… and Lee Weeks lol he knows magic.

1st: What are you reading, watching for entertainment?

Petterson: Whenever I have “free time” I read The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon, for comics I buy the Walmart 100 page-DC books, The Shadow and I’m always looking for Mr. X comics from the 80s. On Netflix, I like shows like Sabrina, Saint Seya, Bojack Horseman, and I’ve been watching Dirty Dozen over and over as I work. audiobooksnow.com with your fans about that experience?

Petterson: The Kubert school was an intense three years of my life where I learned so much and I met wonderful artists, mentors, and fellow collaborators like Chris Puglise whose colors make my book come to life and Al Urrutia who is my editor and an insatiable cinephile like me. I say intense three years because it’s just that, they give you a ton of work so you have to learn how to manage your time. It’s two classes a day so ten classes a week. If you’re fresh out of High School with no job you can manage pretty well, but I was working at Starbucks, volunteering at church and doing the Kubert school at the same time. So, I had some mini panic attacks in my second year there lol

1st: You manage a site called The Art of Nosrettep. (I assume is Petterson spelled backward) Gotta say that your art is amazing. The fans can check it out here at this link Facebook.com/The-Art-of-Nosrettep

Petterson: Thank you very much. Yes, Nosrettep is my name backward and it means the dream builder.

1st: Tell me Petterson are there any works you are especially proud of?

Petterson: Yes, my first comic gig was a four-page comic about kids dealing with siblings that are in the spectrum of autism/special needs. It’s called The Adventures from my World. Its very mind-opening and a bit sad. Although my art has much evolved since then, that story still holds up to me and I’m proud to have worked on it.

1st: Do you mind telling the readers about The Angel of Sadhill comic you are currently writing and drawing. You call it a superhero/spiritual thriller, that’s a very interesting choice of words can you share with the readers a little about the story.

Petterson: The Angel of Sandhill takes place in Brazil where I was born. It combines Iron Man with the crime thriller City of God. The main character has to bring peace to the most dangerous neighborhood/favela in Brazil called Sadhill by fighting corrupt police, drug dealers and maintain his sobriety. It’s a superhero genre because there’s a guy wearing a weaponized suit, it’s a spiritual thriller because something called The Whisperer reveals itself to the main character through the suit.

1st: Who is on the creative team with you for The Angel of Sadhill?

Petterson: The creative team is made up of myself on story and art, Chris ‘PUG’ Puglise on colors, my wife Bercy ‘Noel’ Oliveira on letters, and Al ‘Hombre’ Urrutia as editor.

1st: You are currently raising funds for the project through Kickstarter. I have posted a link for anyone who wants to help.

Kickstarter.com/theangelofsadhill

Are there any projects you would like your fans to know that was not covered in this interview?

Petterson: I am working on several projects right now but all of them are shrouded by secrecy.

1st: Petterson are there any people or groups you would like to acknowledge and give a shout out to that we didn’t mention in this interview?

Petterson: Shout out to everyone who still read, makes and love comics.

1st: Thanks once again Petterson Oliveira for this amazing interview. It was my honor and pleasure to talk with such a talented creator.

Petterson: Thanks again for having and helping spread the word.

NOTHING CAN STOP THE JUGGERNAUT IN NEW SERIES FROM FABIAN NICIEZA!

First Comics News - Fri, 02/07/2020 - 21:35

New York, NY— February 7, 2020 —Fabian Nicieza will be launching a new Juggernaut series this May with artist Ron Garney! Amidst all the smashing, Juggernaut will be trying to find his new place in the Marvel Universe and the series will explore his outlook towards mutantkind’s new status quo that Jonathan Hickman introduced last year in HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X.

 

“That basically instigates the entire story. Having been X and lost, what does Cain become now? After years of back and forth and madness and sadness, he had become a member in good standing of the X-Men, and then while he’s away dancing in Limbo, mutantkind gets everything they could have ever hoped for… and Cain can’t be a part of that,” Nicieza told IGN. “How he reacts to that rejection becomes the exploration of who he is going to become without the one thing that — for good and bad — has defined him for most of his life.”

Gretel & Hansel

Sorcerer's Skull - Fri, 02/07/2020 - 12:00
Oz Perkins' Gretel & Hansel is based on the fairy tale, but is a different story in many ways. This blogpost will contain some mild spoilers for the film.


Like most fairy tales, Gretel & Hansel takes place in a vague time period that is not the present or recent past. Also like many fairy tales, the place is vague, though it definitely has a old world feel about it. The film has none of the lush atmosphere often present in fairy tales, however. This isn't Sleepy Hollow or even Company of Wolves. Instead, it has the post-apocalyptic spareness of The Road (though it reminds me more of McCarthy's as yet unfilmed The Outer Dark). It's woods are gray rather than verdant. It's habitations are rundown and depopulated. The only place that looks really lived in is the house of the witch, and well, she's a cannibal.

Gretel and her little brother stumble through this wasteland, accidentally take psychedelic mushrooms, and are eventually bedeviled by a witch or witches--a child, a mother, a crone. Where this version differs from the traditional tale (well, besides all the stuff described above) is that this is Gretel's tale, or the tale of how the Gretel & Hansel duo split. The Witch sees something of herself in Gretel and is looking for an ally. There is no gingerbread house. No trail of breadcrumbs to lead our heroine back home.

Like Perkins' previous horror films it is a bit of a slow burn, so it may seem sluggish if you are looking for more jump-scares. Fans of The VVitch should find a lot to like.

Weird Revisited: Spacehunters

Sorcerer's Skull - Thu, 02/06/2020 - 01:07
A variety of real life stuff has led to little time to prep the next installment of my Talislanta series. Instead, enjoy this post whose original version was presented in February of 2017.

Luis RoyoWatching The Expanse brought to mind a game I ran in GURPS perhaps decade ago. A "hard" science fiction thing using a lot of stuff from Transhuman Space put giving it more of a Cowboy Bebop spin: a little bit cyberpunk, a little bit 70s action film.

Howard ChaykinIf I ever ran a similar game again, besides using a system besides GURPS, I think I would draw more visually from '80s and 80's sci-fi, borrowing some elements from things like American Flagg! and 80s cyperpunk rpgs. The players' would still be ne'er-do-well, planet-hopping bounty hunters/troubleshooters but with a different skin.

Omniverse: Birds of A Feather

Sorcerer's Skull - Thu, 01/30/2020 - 12:00

There is a lost city, hidden by the clouds, drifting slowly above the modern world, every bit as silent as the tomb it has become. This was the city of an ancient civilization of winged humanoids, the Bird People. It had existed for eons before the future king of Aquilonia, Conan, came to it some 12,000 years ago. It was called Akah Ma’at, and its people were at war with the bat-winged humanoids of Ur-Xanarrh, something Conan helped them with.

The Hawkmen of Mongo may well be the descendants of an abducted group of Bird People. The cannibalistic hawkmen Travis Morgan encounters in Skartaris are certainly of the same lineage.

It may be that Akah Ma’at meant “Sky Island” and eventually came to mean “Aerie,” because when they clouds recede again, and the city appears in the modern historical record, those are the names it is given in translation. In the 1920s, an airplane because lost in a storm and crashes into the Sky Island. A young boy was the only survivor. He was taken in by the Bird People and would be the costumed hero Red Raven1.

It is possible that the hero Black Condor (Quality Comics) represents the same individual, since the Black Condor’s origin as related in the comics of being raised by condors in the Gobi seems implausible--and not just because condor's are native to the Americas. Perhaps the Bird People were in the habit of taking in foundlings?

Red Raven eventually had to turn against his adoptive people when their warrior class, under the influence of the Bloodraven Cult of demon-worshippers, sought to make war on the surface world. The ensuing civil war destroyed part of the city and ended with population either fleeing or placing themselves in suspended animation. The city was left in the charge of two android Bi-Beasts who would later encounter the Hulk.

There is some confusion regarding the origins of the Bird People. Accounts suggest that are an offshoot of the Inhumans, but this ignores the prior existence of Akah Ma’at. Rather, there is an Inhuman offshoot people with more avian features. These are the Feitherans, the people of the superhero Northwind, who lived in a hidden city in the Arctic Circle, and also probably the Aerians that live near the South Pole in the Savage Land.


1Red Raven’s flight costume was made with Cavorite, which may or may not be the same thing as nth metal, but certainly as similar properties.

Wednesday Comics: Barbarian Life

Sorcerer's Skull - Wed, 01/29/2020 - 12:00

I can't believe I haven't mentioned it before, but I couldn't find it in a search, so here goes Roy Thomas's Barbarian Life is subtitled: "A Literary Biography of Conan the Barbarian," but what it is a sort of a "director's commentary" on Marvel's Conan the Barbarian series.  It's two volumes, both now available in Kindle and soft cover. The first volume covers the inception and first 51 issues of the title, while the second goes up to #100, and Thomas and Buscema's final issue together.

THE YELLOW KID TO CELEBRATE 125TH BIRTHDAY IN ALL NEW COMIC BOOK

First Comics News - Tue, 01/28/2020 - 07:17

On February 17, 1895 R.F. Outcault’s character, the Yellow Kid, first appeared in print in Joseph Pulitzer’s New York World. In time, the character found himself in the center of a heated battle between Pulitzer and newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst, who wanted the character for his own publication, New York Journal. As a result, the Yellow Kid appeared in both publications at the same time.  The Yellow Kid proved to be incredibly popular and soon appeared as an advertising icon on everything from whisky and cigars to children’s toys and chewing gum. The comic strip marked the first use of word balloons, sequential storytelling, and multipanel layout, and is considered to be a pioneer in American newspaper comic strip history. To celebrate his 125th birthday, the iconic character is returning in his first, full length comic book, Hully Gee It’s the Yellow Kid, written by Chris Yambar and illustrated by Randy Bish (published by Moordam Comics).

Chris is from Youngstown, OH. He has worked in the comic book industry with characters such as The Simpsons, Mr. Magoo, Popeye, and Spongebob Squarepants.  He is considered by many to be the Godfather of independent comics with his own titles including, Mr. Beat, El Mucho Grande, Fire-Breathing Pope, and others.

Randy is an award-winning editorial cartoonist from Greensburg, PA, syndicated by Pennsylvania News Media, Cagle Cartoons, and the Fourth Estate. He served as the cartoonist of the Tribune-Review for over 30 years.

Will Allred talks about DIARY OF NIGHT

First Comics News - Mon, 01/27/2020 - 22:23

Will Allred joined a collective of 5 Kickstarter campaigns with 5 independent creators banding together to launch on the same day (or within a few days of each other). Their goal is to help promote each other’s campaigns and support each other during the long days of a Kickstarter campaign. Will is launching Diary of Night and he stopped by First Comics News to let our readers know all about the Diary of Night.

First Comics News: Is this a hardcover version of Diary of Night Vol. 1: Distant Thunder?

Will Allred: This is for a special, one-of-a-kind, Diary of Night Volume 1 softcover with a handwritten, 100-word diary entry inside. Backers will also receive a digital collection of all 100 diary entries.

1st: What is Diary of Night about?

Will: It’s about Catherine Morrison, a 900-year-old vampire who walks the line between humans and vampires, protecting her people from the worst of humanity, and humanity from the worst of her people.

1st: Who is Catherine Morrison?

Will: She is a very old vampire that strives to help both vampires and humans.

1st: How does she protect humans?

Will: She tries to protect both humans and vampires by giving vampires a community in which to feel safe so they can just live their lives.

1st: Is she sort of like the X-Men, in that she protects humans who fear her?

Will: Actually, that’s not too far off. Catherine is really trying to make the world a better place and protect her people.

1st: What are vampires like in the world of Diary of Night?

Will: They’re really just normal people who happen to be afflicted with a very rare condition.

1st: What is the Phoenix Foundation?

Will: Catherine established the Phoenix Foundation to help vampires. It provides safe places for them, helps them, and gives them a place to belong.

1st: Why would vampires duel?

Will: Vampires would fight each other for the same reason that people fight each other. They just don’t like each other, bad decisions that escalate, revenge…the list is endless.

1st: Who is Anne Lawson?

Will: Anne Lawson is Catherine’s assistant and bodyguard.

1st: Who is Tim?

Will: Tim is a relatively new vampire that is having problems adjusting to his new life, and Catherine has been trying to mentor him and help him overcome his problems.

1st: Who is Arthur?

Will: Arthur is the brutal vampire that inadvertently made Catherine a vampire over 900 years ago.

1st: Why is Michael hunting her?

Will: Michael is a self-styled vampire hunter who has been pointed at Catherine.

1st: Who is Tom Wells?

Will: He’s a young vampire who is something of a social climber.

1st: Why is he after Catherine?

Will: Spoilers.

1st: What is the minimum pledge for a digital copy?

Will: $5 will get you the digital collection of the 100 diary entries, while $15 will get you a digital copy of Diary of Night Volume 1.

1st: What is the minimum pledge for a print copy?

Will: $25 gets you a copy of Diary of Night Volume 1, and it also includes the digital collection of the 100 diary and a digital copy of Diary of Night Volume 1.

1st: What rewards do you have planned?

Will: There is a hardcover available, reward level that includes a copy of Diary of Night Volume 1 and other published work.

1st: What does the multi-launch do to enhance Diary of Night?

Will: Launching a project at the same time as other creators is a way for us independent creators to have each other’s backs. We can help each other promote each other’s projects and generally act as support for each other. Creating comics can be a lonely road, so this is us traveling together for a bit down that road and doing what we can to support each other.

1st: For any readers still on the fence, what makes the Diary of Night so cool no true comic fan should miss it?

Will: Diary of Night has a phenomenal art team. Gene Gonzales is an amazing storyteller, and Rus Wooton is a lettering and design superstar. I like to think that it’s a compelling story with beautiful art, and the softcover and hardcover are, excuse my obvious bias, beautiful books.
