Graphic Novel BTTM FDRS Digs Into the Horrors of Gentrification

Because they play host to millions of living, breathing things, cities become living, breathing things themselves. Some parts of a city can wither away to almost nothing, only to get revived when new blood pumps into it. The uncomfortable truth of where that blood comes from, and what it sustains, lies at the heart of Ezra Claytan Daniels and Ben Passmore’s BTTM FDRS. → Read More

More Than a Decade Ago, Checkmate Gave Readers a Brilliant Fusion of Politics and Superheroes

In most mainstream superhero fiction, the United States of America has superheroes. Lots of them. When France, England, China, and other countries also have their own metahumans, things can get…tense. Over the decades, many comics projects have explored what it might look like for powerful nations and superpowered people to secretly work with and against each other, but the best in the… → Read More

Jordan Peele Reflects on the Cultural Relevancy of Us, The Twilight Zone, and Candyman

The Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke-starring Us had its worldwide premiere at SXSW in Austin, Texas and early reactions have been extremely positive. It’s safe to say that Jordan Peele’s next film is one that will have people talking. If they’re brave enough to see it, that is. → Read More

Little Monsters Is a Skeevy-Cute Parade of Zombie Comedy Clichés That Works Despite Itself

Almost nothing that happens in Little Monsters will surprise you. People die comically horrible deaths, kids say and do cute things, characters become better versions of themselves by the end. It’s a greasy cheeseburger of a movie, utterly predictable in every way. But, hey, sometimes you want a greasy cheeseburger. → Read More

Jordan Peele’s Us Goes Deeper and Darker Into America’s Collective Psyche

Us is both more intimate and more visceral than Get Out, and packs just as much of a punch. → Read More

Jordan Peele’s Us Goes Deeper and Darker Into America’s Collective Psyche

In his new movie Us, Jordan Peele shows the distance between everyday ordinary folks, and the dangerous fringe-dwellers who can upend their lives, can be as slim as a mirrored pane of glass. → Read More

David Walker Is Betting on the Power of Black History and a Bold New Self-Publishing Gamble

David Walker is busy. He’s co-writing Naomi, a new high-profile series from DC Comics, along with Brian Michael Bendis and artist Jamal Campbell. He’s also working on Image Comics’ enthusiastically received Bitter Root with co-writer Chuck Brown and artist Sanford Greene. But, despite the fact that the veteran writer has worked with one of the Big Two and the biggest outlet for creator-owned… → Read More

There Will Never Be Another George Perez

If superhero comics have anything like Michaelangelo’s painting in the Sistine Chapel—awe-inspiring work that communicates celestial grandeur and human drama on a grand scale—it’s probably something drawn by George Perez. → Read More

The Everyday Weirdness of Xombi, One of the Most Under-Appreciated Comics Ever Made

In the mid-1990s, David Kim lived in a world where bicycle piranha would secretly feast on chained-up two-wheelers. He fought against incarnations of misdirected rage and rode in elevators where you had to read stories aloud to get to the right floor. He was the main character of Xombi, a comic about an unkillable man, an experiment that died too soon. Twice. → Read More

The Joker Looks Sicker Than Ever, Thanks to a Hollywood Legend

The Joker has gone through dozens of different looks over the last 70-odd years, with artists making him more horrific or cartoony as they re-imagine him. With a new bust depicting the Clown Prince of Crime, special effects make-up master Rick Baker joins the roster of creators who’ve tackled the DC Comics villain. Of course, his Joker looks really sick, in all senses of the word. → Read More

Concrete Hits Heavy at the Heart Without Ever Throwing a Punch

When Concrete first appeared in the mid-1980s, the discourse around comics’ artistic merit was undergoing a profound shift. Excitement around works like The Dark Knight Returns, Maus, and Watchmen expanded the public’s ideas about what comics could achieve. Concrete never became part of the shorthand list for “mature comics.” That’s a shame, because writer-artist Paul Chadwick’s signature… → Read More
