New series!

The Movement #1, written by Gail Simone, cover by Amanda Conner

We are faceless. We are limitless. We see all. And we do not forgive.

Who defends the powerless against the GREEDY and the CORRUPT? Who protects the homeless and poverty-stricken from those who would PREY upon them in the DARK OF NIGHT?

When those who are sworn to protect us abuse their power, when toxic government calls down super-human lackeys to force order upon the populace…finally, there is a force, a citizen’s army, to push order BACK.

Let those who abuse the system know this as well: We have our OWN super humans now. They are not afraid of your badges or Leagues. And they will not be SILENCED.

We are your neighbors. We are your co-workers. And we are your children.

Castle Waiting vol. II: Definitive Edition HC by Linda Medley

THE SECOND VOLUME OF THIS CLASSIC FANTASY, NOW IN AN EXTENDED AND IMPROVED VERSION

With its long-awaited second volume, Linda Medley’s witty and sublimely drawn fantasy eases into a relaxed comedy of manners as Lady Jain settles into her new life in Castle Waiting.

Unexpected visitors result in the discovery and exploration of a secret passageway, not to mention an epic bowling tournament. A quest for ladies’ underpants, the identity of her baby son Pindar’s father, the education of Simon, Rackham and Chess arguing about the “manly arts,” and an escape-prone goat are just a few of the elements in this delightful new volume. The book also includes many flashbacks that deepen the stories behind the characters, including Jain’s earliest romantic entanglements and conflicts with her bratty older sisters, the horrific past of the enigmatic Dr. Fell, and more.

Originally released in a slightly shorter version when the series ceased publication, this new edition includes over 60 pages’ worth of brand new additional story and epilogue, and the entire book has been re-lettered in a livelier, more inviting style for an even more engaging reading experience.

It’s a light week so the rest aren’t below a cut!

Sherlock Holmes: The Liverpool Demon #4, co-written by Leah Moore

Drummond, now on the run, seeks shelter in Hitchcock’s Menagerie, but how long will it be before Inspector Thornton tracks him down? The final piece of the puzzle falls into place for Holmes as he and Watson return to the scene of Tom Christian’s murder. Yet the route they take is far from straight and perhaps more dangerous than even the Great Detective could imagine.

Interviewsy Bits

  • Karrie Fransman interviews herself about her new graphic novel The House That Groaned, about the lonely, broken lives of the people who live in apartments inside an old Victorian house. Watch the trailer for it here (kinda NSFW):

  • MTV Geek talks to Jan Duursema and John Ostrander about Dawn of the Jedi.
  • Becky Cloonan talks about her acclaimed minicomic Wolves, its follow-up Orcs, and of course, Conan the Barbarian.
  • Jessica Abel and Matt Madden talk about moving to France and their upcoming projects (including Abel’s return to drawing her own stories with the GN Trish Trash: Rollergirl of Mars!)
  • Marjorie Liu answers reader questions about Astonishing X-Men.
  • Bryan and Mary Talbot discuss the Joycean graphic novel/memoir written by Mary and drawn by Bryan (Video).
  • Multiversity Comics checks in with Joelle Jones and Kelly Sue DeConnick
  • Camilla d’Errico discusses the forthcoming Boom Studios collection and continuation of her self-published series Tanpopo.
  • Christina Weir, Jackie Lewis, and Nunzio DeFilippis talk about their new graphic novel Play Ball!  It did not shock me one bit to learn that Weir is a fellow Bostonian, and therefore a Red Sox fan (it is one of the requirements to live here).
  • Denise Mina comments briefly on the challenges and rewards of writing comics as opposed to prose. (Video)

Project: DCnU Ladyprojects

DC has promised us more female creators on upcoming projects (minis? ongoings? who knows!), and I gots me some opinions of characters and book concepts I’d like to see and who I’d like to see doing them. And I want to read yours too! You can reblog this post, obviously, but it would probably be equally as useful if everyone would tag their posts “DCnU Ladyprojects”

So, in no particular order, here are some ladies I would like to see on certain projects (not necessarily together, but that would also be awesome):
