Just in time for the final night of Hanukkah, artist Kevin Mellon returns for the second GCTNH Holiday Special! Look out for another one next week!
One of the awesome things about working for ComicsAlliance is that I occasionally get to work with some truly phenomenal artists, and today, Anthony Clark of Nedroid and I have teamed up to bring you Ten Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloons inspired by our favorite comics!
This one was a lot of fun for me, but Anthony just killed it. Enjoy!
There is nothing about the slow fade from Washington to Jefferson to Lincoln to Martin Luther King Jr. to Hulk Hogan that does not fill me with pride for my country.
When you’re a vigilante who swore to dress as a bat and haunt the night until crime was eradicated, Mother’s Day can be a little… well, difficult. That’s why today, Caleb Goellner and I have brought you seven increasingly awkward Mother’s Day Cards from your favorite super-heroes!
[Due to my busy freelance schedule, I didn't get to do a fake redesign for this year's April Fool's ISB, but I think I made up for it at ComicsAlliance with four BREAKING NEWS!! posts. The biggest one, of course, started out as this week's installment of Great Comics That Never Happened, which Rusty laid the groundwork for by saying he couldn't make the deadline on Twitter. It's called living the gimmick, son!]
Normally I promote my ComicsAlliance articles as they go up, but apparently today was the day that every major publisher decided to kick off the new month by making huge announcements, and I’ve been swamped. So much has been going down–like the announcement of Mark Millar’s adaptation of Finnegans Wake–that the rest of the staff’s been shorthanded covering the big news, and I was pulled from my usual position as a feature writer and given the job of an actual comics journalist today.
Here are the big stories I broke:
ITEM! Dynamite announces 14 new Green Hornet titles will be joining the five they’ve already solicited!
ITEM!: DC announces the upcoming follow-up to Brightest Day–an article made even more exciting when a source who wished to remain anonymous to protect his career (Dean Trippe) leaked the next follow-up too!
And finally, the biggest news…
ITEM!: Top Shelf has announced the next exciting installment of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Saga: America: 1988!
It was a tough one, and journalistic reporting is something that’s way out of my element, but I’ve got to say, it’s exactly this sort of crunch time that makes me proud to be part of an organization with integrity and a commitment to honesty like CA.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m taking the rest of the evening off.
