Tradewaiter: Thief of Thieves Vol 1: “I Quit”
The Kirkman-created, Spencer-scripted, Martinbrough-illustrated noir tale has been collected after receiving multiple postive reviews during it’s monthly run. Will this story of deception hold up in trade?
To close our trio of “Prophet” interviews for Artist August, we have a chat with the frontman of the team: Brandon Graham. You may know, and hopefully love, Graham for his work on “King City” and the upcoming “Multiple Warheads,” and he’s brought that inventiveness and assured storytelling with him to “Prophet.” No one is more responsible for making this title what it is, and it is one of the many reasons why he is one of the most exciting creators in comics.
Join us as we talk to Brandon about his first year of “Prophet,” what it’s like working on a book with so many great artists, breaking into the industry, and much, much more.
Yesterday we got an e-mail from Raffaele Ienco and a whole bunch of interesting information regarding his Image series, “Epic Kill.” For starters, the book is now no longer a five issue miniseries but rather an ongoing, so congrats to Raff on the book being extended! But wait, there’s more. Starting with issue #6, the book will see a new regular editor on the title, with the trade on the way soon in early October.
Out of anyone on the “Prophet” team, perhaps no one’s star has risen more this year than Simon Roy. The creator of such gems as “Jan’s Atomic Heart,” Roy hasn’t just illustrated the most issues of “Prophet” (including its initial stunner of an arc), but he also has been involved from the writing and creative standpoint on that end. He’s been an important cog in the great machine that is this book, and has been as important as anyone, save perhaps Brandon Graham.
Today on Artist August, we talk to Simon about his role on the team, what it’s like to be involved with such a great list of artists, dinosaurs and Slavic culture, and much, much more. Thanks to Simon for chatting with us, and look for an interview with the main “Prophet” man himself, Brandon Graham, tomorrow. Make sure to check the bottom of this post for a rad process piece from issue #22 of Prophet by Roy.
Our pick of the week this week, “Morning Glories” is one of our absolute favorite comics — and one of my personal favorites as well. A sprawling mystery set in the chaotic and suspicious halls of a distinguished academy, the books draws you in with an endearing cast, an intense story wrapped in enigmas and wonderfully poignant and expressive artwork. It’s simply one of the best.
So while we gear up for this week’s edition of MGA Study Hall, offering up annotations to a rather intense issue, how about a look at what you’re in store for? Yeah? Ok.
Take a look at a six-page preview below, and get psyched now:
Buying comics can be an expensive hobby. A lot of fans simply can’t afford everything they’re interested in, due to rising prices and the over-saturation of the market with superhero titles.
That’s why we’re here. Every week, the Multiversity staff is asked “What would you buy this week if you couldn’t go over $20?” and shares their reasons why, in order to help others who might have similar tastes make their own decisions in buying comics on a budget. Be sure to leave your own picks in the comments!
Today on Artist August, we talk with “Prophet” artist Giannis Milonogiannis. He’s been part of one of the great comic art teams of 2012, pairing with Brandon Graham, Simon Roy and Farel Dalrymple to make this Image Comics title one of the most diverse and exciting visual comics on the racks today. Milonogiannis should already be known though – the guy has an amazing webcomic series named Old City Blues as well that has been released in print by Archaia – and his art that brings all kinds of Western and Eastern comic influences to the table is a style that constantly excites us at MC. We talk to Milonogiannis about his role on the Prophet team, about Old City Blues, and much, much more. His art can be seen in this week’s Prophet #28.
Glory, a character created by Rob Liefeld in the 90′s never really got her time to shine. She ran for 22 issues before the imprint all but completely ceased operation. Only a few months ago, Liefeld brought back all of his creations to comic shops. Glory was one of the first, and it also happens to be one of the best. you should be reading her book. Here’s why.
