I have seen the Supergirl pilot, and it’s terrible.

The Supergirl pilot found its way to the internet last week nearly a full 6 months before its intended air date. I’ll admit, I had high hopes. In an age of shaming, sexism, and the very loud complaints of a very vocal minority as pertains to male-driven hero movies, a show about a strong female hero is a logical, important, and maybe even necessary thing to do. Plus, Supergirl is a pretty great character, and other than 1984’s oddly entertaining but still terrible big screen release, she’s never been given the …

The Best Way To Read Webcomics

Webcomics. There’s a metric tonne of them out there. Some, like the ever-popular XKCD and Penny Arcade follow along the lines of newspaper strips, while others are delivering individual pages of an extended graphic novels one page at a time, usually once or twice a week. If you read more than one or two, keeping track of them all can be cumbersome, until now…

Bionic Antboy webcomic

Shameless self-promotion time. Bionic Antboy is a weekly web comic that originally started out as a video game idea a long time ago. Since The Practical Dead is in an on-again/off-again state of flux, I started working on Antboy when time afforded it. Now, with 4 months worth of pages under my belt, and more pages already in the can, it’s probably a good time to share it.

The Practical Dead

This post is both a shameless self-promotion and an explanation of sorts. Over the past while, the site has been quieter than usual. While there’s still more to come from Fan Expo, and we’ll still be writing other pieces, a lot of time has gone into another endeavour – The Practical Dead. It’s a new web comic written and drawn by myself and RGB’s own Rebel Scum. What is The Practical Dead you ask?

Interview with Viktor Kalvachev

Ryan talks with Viktor Kalvachev, writer for the Image Comic “Blue Estate”, a deliciously lurid pulp comic with some of the best covers I’ve seen around in a while. Given the twisty nature of the plot, a team of artist take turns drawing different sections of the story. Viktor talks about some of the unique challenges working on a multi-artist book, including supplying maquettes of the main characters so that the artistic team has a similar frame of reference.

Samurai’s Blood creators at Fan Expo 2011

While at the Image booth during Fan Expo, we had a chance to talk with Owen Wiseman and Nam Kim, writer and artist, respectively, of Samurai’s Blood, a gorgeously drawn samurai revenge tale. Unlike many tales in the genre, especially in comics, Samurai’s lood avoids the more fantasy-based trappings, and weaves a tale more firmly grounded in reality.

Freelance Blues returns at Fan Expo 2011
