Publisher’s Weekly did an article on the #WoCinComicspanel at #NYCC2014!!!
Hello! THE WICKED + THE DIVINE 5 is out this week, bringing our first arc to a close. Here is a preview.
As well as our regular cover, there is a fantastic variant by Becky Cloonan.
New World is a black-and-white sci-fi/fantasy comic anthology with the theme of exploration, colonization, conquest, assimilation, “going native,” appropriation, imperialism, strained relations… essentially, what happens when mutually un-contacted cultures, continents, and species collide.
The deadline for submissions is November 20th. Head on over to the official page to see how to submit, and I can’t wait to see what you’ve got.
There are some authors whose works I really must own and must read. One of them is the Aya series written by Marguerite Abouet and illustrated by Clément Oubrerie. The original six were published by Gallimardbetween 2005 and 2010, with English versions published by Drawn & Quarterly between 2007 and 2013. D&Q published the first three volumes, and then a reworked edition with the first three volumes in one (Life in Yop City) and another with the last three volumes (Love in Yop City).Aya tells the story of its 19-year old heroine, the studious and clear-sightd Aya, her easy-going friends Adjoua and Bintou and their meddling neighbours and relatives.
