Market Monday: August 28th, 2013 New Releases

This week, I’m going to try and start a thing— to link creators Tumblrs if they have one. I’m thinking of doing this across the board on every post, but I also realize I may drive myself mad in the offing. At any rate, as usual links attached to titles go to some place to buy said book, links attached to creators’ names go to their Tumblr! (And send me the ones I missed!)

Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo, and Me by Ellen Forney

Shortly before her 13th-birthday, Ellen Forney was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Flagrantly manic and terrified that medications would impair her creativity, she began a years-long struggle to find mental stability while retaining her passions and creativity. Forney finds inspiration from the lives and work of other artists and writers who suffered from mood disorders, including Vincent van Gogh, Georgia O’Keeffe, William Styron, and Sylvia Plath. She also researches the clinical aspects of bipolar disorder and what studies tell us about the conundrum of attempting to “cure” an otherwise brilliant mind. Forney’s memoir provides a visceral glimpse into the effects of a mood disorder on an artist’s work.

Damsels #1, co-written by Leah Moore, art by Aneke

Rapa wishes she had not got out of bed that morning, if she had a bed to get out of that is. The day began badly and has gone rapidly and literally downhill ever since. A series of peculiar and baffling encounters throw obstacle after obstacle into her path, intent it seems on preventing her progress. The thing is, until today she had no idea she was trying to make any progress, toward anything! A collection of hazy memories and bewildering tattoos are all she has to help her figure it all out, and to be honest, she’d just as soon not bother. Around her, we see the mountain city of Caumont thrown into overdrive by the arrival of Queen Talia and King Aurore of Perrault. The streets are thronged with cheering people, does it matter they aren’t exactly sure why they are cheering, or for whom?

Remember that new Leah Moore/John Reppion project with the J. Scott Campbell cover?  And I told you not to be totally turned off by it since there was a totally different interior artist named Aneke?
Well, look upon her works, ye mighty.  Behold, women with different body types, faces, and breast sizes!! (Also some troll dude).
Bleeding Cool has some more sketches, and I am particularly heartened to see this page:

There’s some strong storytelling here and it looks to be an interesting start to what I expect to be a great series!

BleedingCool has posted a first look at Leah Moore and John Reppion’s upcoming Damsels series from Dynamite, which follows Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, the Little Mermaid, and Snow White “in the middle of some kind of political plot with the threat of war.”
If, like me, you are not overly fond of J. Scott Campbell, never fear!  He is only contributing covers.  Interior art will be handled by Aneke who I am not familiar with, but their art looks to be a good fit for the story.  Look for it in (or better yet, pre-order it for) September!

Congrats to Leah Moore!

According to Bleeding Cool, Leah Moore and her husband/writing partner John Reppion are expecting twins!  These will be the couple’s second and third children.  Congratulations are in order to the happy couple! (And also to the twins’ grandfather and stepgrandmother, Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie)

Leah Moore, John Reppion, and Emma Viceli’s telegraph-themed The Thrill Electric debuted yesterday.  They’re calling it a motion comic, but it’s really more of an interactive comic— which is fine by me since I never found any motion comics that didn’t just look like really bad animation.  The Thrill Electric features sound effects and guided view panel-by-panel reading, but still allows you to set your own pace.  Once you reach certain panels, it unlocks links to relevant historical information or videos which give the creators a little more room to play with.
The main downside is that you do need to download a special web player, but it’s fairly non-intrusive.  It’s only two chapters in so far, so go give it a read!

Check out this trailer for The Thrill Electric motion comic, written by Leah Moore and John Reppion, designed by Emma Vieceli and animated by the all-female Windflower Studio, produced by Channel Four.

Leah Moore describes it thus:

The story revolves around the office of the International and Electric Telegraph Company in Manchester, in 1871. We follow the fortunes of a gang of young adults who connect with wires. They have the day to day data of the city, of the world even, flowing through their telegraph keys. They are solely responsible for the safe transmission of millions of messages from Croydon to Calcutta, Cairo to Copenhagen, millions of bits of information flowing through the wires, through their fingers. Millions of people relying on the telegraph for news of wars, the prices of their stocks, the news of a loved one’s birth, or marriage or death. All of this responsibility heaped on those young shoulders and they still manage to find time to slack off, play games, bitch about each other and fall madly passionately in love, all at the lightning speed of the telegraph.

The Thrill Electric revisits a generation who were at the cutting edge of technology, who had skills which took them to a whole new level, and created a whole new class of young affluent workers. men and women were working side by side often for the first time, trying to outclass one another with their telegraph skills. Feathers were ruffled, and the tension, well you could say it was electric!

Click through to see select “pages” and concept art.

It debuts on thrillelectric.com on October 27.  It looks gorgeous, and as a big fan of the Moore/Reppion writing team, I’m looking forward to what they do with the still-unsure motion comics medium
