A detective with no memory, no identity and no manners. A femme fatale seeking escape from a powerful crime lord. A voodoo queen with a penchant for mixtapes and hi-tops. A goat-eating TV… Welcome to Dedande City, where good people check under their beds at night and reality is never quite what it seems.
This year's NYCC had some tremendous cosplay. I dare to say the best I have ever seen. Here is just a taste...
One of the television mediums that I truly miss from the late 90s and early 2000s are the anthology series that would include three to four short stories in one hour. Shows like Tales from the Crypt or Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction, their episodes gave you a quick glimpse into someone’s world or story that added an eerie shock or surprising twist. I loved the horror or sci-fi elements of these shows and, unfortunately, it’s not a genre that we see too often today. Fortunately for me, Love Hurts by Kim W. Andersson has managed to temporarily fill that void with his delightfully shocking series of short comics all centered on the titular theme of love, and the horrifying things we do because or in spite of it.
NYCC'15: An Interview with Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá about Dark Horse Comic's Graphic Novel: Two BrothersWritten by Gary M. Kenny, CC2K Comics Editor
Two Brothers, a new graphic novel by Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá came out this week at the New York Comic Convention (2015). It's an immensely fascinating story about a dysfunctional family from Manaus, Brazil. The artwork by Gabriel Bá is one of the most beautiful comics I've ever seen. The Brazilian Wonder Twins (Moon & Bá) transport you to Brazil in the 1950s. I have never experienced a comic so captivating as Two Brothers. It's dark, it's red hot, you can feel the music and the colors (the book is drawn in black & white by the way), and you will love/hate every character. It's a gripping soap opera of a tale. It's chaotic, it's fierce, and i thought what better place to interview the Wonder Twins about it then the New York Comic Con.
Following the apocalypse, two factions remain: the hipsters, who live in New Brooklyn, the last known city, and the rednecks, who will do anything to get inside. When an outsider finds herself caught in the middle of an ongoing war, she must take a stand if she hopes to make it out of New Brooklyn alive.
Comixology has slowly been re-releasing comics that were printed before the wide acceptance of digital comics. So when I saw that they had finally uploaded my all-time favorite run of Green Lantern comics, I jumped at the chance to buy them, re-read them and write an article about them.
