Jim McCann’s new series MIND THE GAP comes out this Wednesday and it is yet another Image series that I have been very patiently waiting for since it was announced. So in celebration, here is the book’s process blog, mindthegap-theseries:
The color pattern Sonia Oback uses in scenes like this matches our blog theme. Happy coincidence!
I have to say, I’m with Graeme when he writes that this may be the year of Image. The consistency of their work lately is definitely the most exciting thing happening right now.
PSA: Walter Simonson is [on*] Twitter and he’s posting all kinds of beautiful things. You’re welcome.
So it was just announced at Wondercon that Kelly Sue DeConnick will be writing a new ongoing Captain Marvel (formerly Ms. Marvel) series, with Dexter Soy on interiors and Ed McGuinness on covers. I had the privilege of designing Carol’s new costume. Our idea was to give her a kind of swash-buckling costume that invoked a sense of her history as an Air Force officer. Her hair is slicked back at the sides when in costume - so her Kree-style helmet can form when she needs it.
Can’t wait for the series to launch! I love Carol Danvers, and Kelly Sue is one of my favourite writers. More details here.
I could not possibly love this or Jamie McKelvie more.
I am so happy to hear this. Beautiful work, Jamie, and congratulations KS.
The rough cover art for PULPHOPE 2 posted by Paul Pope on Flickr, who describes it as:
In the initial design stages on PULPHOPE 2, working with Jim Pascoe on this. Published by Legendary.
The book will likely be an Xmas season 2012 release, mostly new material. We’re planning for a 12x12 LP format, 250 plus pages.
His first volume, which I got at MoCCA in 2007, is the kind of thing that is slow-going, and this is exactly how Pope should be digested. You need a break after every page of text or art, it’s just that filling.
Oh, come on. (Does a dance).
iFanboy posted this grid of the Image Comics “Experience Creativity” ads, as well as an interview with publisher Eric Stephenson.
I’m still not sold on the execution on these, but I can get behind the idea of making better in-house comics ads.
I was thinking about writing about these ads the other day, but really all I have to add is that I think these are the best in-house ads done today.
Ben McCool rocks out.

Come by, grab some comics, get a pint later.
From Fraction’s photostream. Can’t embed it, but you can view it. In this panel, Gabriel Ba references THE PRISONER. I feel like I’ve gone a year without a new issue of my favorite comic, but really it’s only been four months.
