4 years ago this w/e at @ELCAFest. Me chairing the @brokenfrontier panel with guests Tillie Walden, Sanita Muižniece from @kushkomikss. @peonygent and @TinyDancing of @AveryHillPubl. Note how all the panellists were ahead of their time and socially distancing themselves from me.
The Dancing Plague – One of history’s most mysterious unexplained events revisited in graphic novel form by @brookes_gareth and @SelfMadeHero. My review here at @brokenfrontier. https://t.co/K8PWMaUWjv
So many LOOK-IN strips are presumably tied up in rights issues and/or feature forgotten TV characters that would probably make them commercially unviable to reprint but this CATWEAZLE serial is up there with SAPPHIRE & STEEL as strips I'd love to read in print.
Third volume of the MIRACLEMAN reprints. This has the same level of intensity that I felt in that early Moore Arcane story in SWAMP THING. The Totleben art takes me back to that time too.
First volume of the original Luke Cage stories in the Epic Collection series. Very 1970s! Strong supporting cast, offbeat villains, street level action and very little intrusion from the rest of the Marvel Universe. Obviously dated but fun nonetheless.
As a kid the thing I found kinda boring in MAD was the movie/TV stuff with the poor puns on names and obvious send-ups. There’s lots of that in NOT BRAND ECHH but conversely there’s also a lot of very clever parody too. Especially the material lampooning non-Marvel properties.
The second CONAN THE BARBARIAN OMNIBUS. It’s really sad to see how badly Marvel fumbled the reacquisition of the character. The main series was strong but the super-hero crossovers were the kind of crass exploitation we should have expected. This material though is excellent.
EVERYONE IS TULIP is out very soon from @DarkHorseComics. I spoke to creators @NicoleGoux and @xDaveBakerx at @brokenfrontier about a book that's going to have everyone talking this month. Seriously, no unjustified hype here! https://t.co/3jEBW929je
Comics I mentioned on the @mayamada Livestream #4 - THE DANCING PLAGUE by @brookes_gareth. Another genius piece from the comics master of mixed media from @SelfMadeHero. https://t.co/NNXHRun3ze
Comics I mentioned on the @mayamada Livestream #2 - THE SADDEST ANGRIEST BLACK GIRL IN TOWN by @RoBroSmo from @BlackJoseiPress. See the image below for my thoughts on this! Review here: https://t.co/c6ZbEuCRDS Buy here: https://t.co/r0OFH4qGCS
Here's my BF interview with the other livestream guest @NicMacTweets: https://t.co/P6k3GNzJrk Nic is nearer the beginning of her comics journey but I am *so* excited at the potential I see in her work. #BF6toWatch
Similarly I recently interviewed fellow guest on the livestream @shazleenmkhan here at BF: https://t.co/9mYpanmpEt Shazleen's comic BUUZA!! is the work of a true rising star on the scene.
THREAD!!! So this was a lot of fun with Nigel from @mayamada, @shazleenmkhan and @NicMacTweets. I mentioned a few comics on the livestream so thought I'd add some links to stores and relevant BF articles.
