THE EMPTY MAN #1 (of 6)

Retail Price: $3.99
Author: Cullen Bunn
Artist: Vanesa R. Del Rey
Cover Artists: A: Vanesa R. Del Rey B: Goñi Montes (Incentive)

WHY WE LOVE IT: There’s nothing scarier than horror that hits home—a tale of terror only one or two steps removed from our reality. THE EMPTY MAN is a dystopic version of the world we know, where a terrifying disease has taken on almost deific connotations.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Cullen Bunn (THE SIXTH GUN, VENOM) and Vanesa R. Del Rey (HIT) are two of the most exciting talents in the industry, and perfectly in sync on this haunting new crime procedural.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: It’s been one year since the first reported case of the Empty Man disease, and no drug has been able to slow its progress. The cause is unknown, and the symptoms include fits of rage, hideous hallucinations, suicidal dementia, followed by death, or a near lifeless, “empty” state of catatonia. As murder cults rise nationwide, the FBI and CDC enter a joint investigation of the Empty Man, hoping to piece together clues to stop the cult and uncover a cure.

THOMAS ALSOP #1 (of 8)

Retail Price: $3.99
Author: Chris Miskiewicz
Artist: Palle Schmidt
Cover Artists: A: Palle Schmidt B: Dean Haspiel (Incentive)

WHY WE LOVE IT: Bringing readers great books from new talent has always been close to our hearts here at BOOM! Studios. Chris Miskiewicz and Palle Schmidt have created a warlock for these modern times, and we’re delivering them to the best audience in comics!

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Fans of John Constantine and Dr. Strange will love this new take on the magic-wielding hero who battles demons on the streets… and in his own mind. Thomas has money and fame, but also the burden of a being this generation’s occult warrior. Can he survive the battles both within and without?

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Thomas Alsop is the current “Hand of the Island,” a title handed down from generation to generation. He guards Manhattan from evil, using his family’s prowess for magic. Being a thoroughly modern warlock, he deals with something even more evil than demons… reality television!

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA #1

Retail Price: $3.99
Story: John Carpenter and Eric Powell
Script: Eric Powell
Artist: Brian Churilla
Cover Artists: A: Eric Powell B: Joe Quinones C: Chris Weston (Incentive) D. Terry Dodson (Incentive) E. Tank Top (Incentive)

WHY WE LOVE IT: BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA is one of our favorite cult-classic films because it mashed together ’80s action and supernatural fantasy movies with ’70s kung-fu flicks. This is the first time any new BIG TROUBLE stories have been officially told, and we have the film’s original director, John Carpenter, working with Eric Powell (THE GOON) on the story. You can’t beat that!

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Eric Powell is a huge fan of BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, so the sense of humor and over-the-top action he brings to THE GOON will be all over this book. Trust us, Brian Churilla’s (THE SIXTH GUN: SONS OF THE GUN) art on this is all kinds of fun.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Jack Burton, a macho, truck-driving adventurer, finds a stowaway hiding on his rig, The Pork Chop Express, but that soon becomes the least of his troubles. He helped his best friend Wang save his fiancée from the clutches of a demon, but now the wedding has been invaded by more evil forces with one thing on their minds—revenge against Jack Burton!

Adventures with Quailman

Interview: Women of BOOM! – Penelope Gaylord

AT Fionna and Cake 001 Awesome Comic Con VariantIt’s Thursday which brings us a new interview and our 20th “Women of BOOM!” feature, spotlighting the many kick-ass women that work at BOOM!, Archaia and KaBOOM! We’re focusing on everyone, editors, designers, writers, artists, you name it! We’re making sure to include the hard-working folks whose contributions are often overlooked in the process.

BOOM! (and KaBOOM! and Archaia) has given us unprecedented access and the chance to ask questions to their staff, and creative teams, to find out why the publisher is so successful in hiring women and their experiences in the comic industry as women.

Penelope Gaylord is a cover artist and inker who has worked on such titles as Adventure Time With Fionna and Cake, Adventure Time, Fanboys Vs. Zombies, and the recently launched Loki: Ragnarok and Roll!

Graphic Policy: How did you get involved in the comic book industry? 

Penelope Gaylord: When I met my then-boyfriend/now-husband, Jerry Gaylord, he really opened my eyes to the possibility that being an artist could actually be a job. Comics was a natural industry that we wanted to be involved with since it’s been a huge influence in both of our lives. After my first taste of being behind an artist alley table at a comic con, it just felt good.

loki ragnarok and roll cover bGP: Did you read comics growing up? Do you read them now?  

PRG: No, I don’t really recall reading a lot of comics growing up. But the stories were always around me. I was definitely exposed to Superman and DC superheroes and the X-Men through tv/movies before I read any of the comics. When I got into high school, that’s when I started reading manga (Japanese comics) because it was really just starting to make its way into the U.S. From there I started to appreciate the medium more. I definitely read them now, both manga and American comics, but just a select few.

GP: How did you come to work with BOOM!/Archaia?  

PRG: When my husband Jerry Gaylord got the penciller job for Fanboys Vs Zombies, I volunteered to be his inker because we love to work together. When we went to San Diego Comic Con two years ago, I got to meet the BOOM! family and they were just the coolest people I’ve ever met. Honestly. There’s a bit of an expectation of editors being somewhat aloof and almost pretentious when you meet them for the first time, at least in my experience anyway. But all the editors at BOOM! were extremely friendly and down to earth. After getting to do an exclusive cover for Adventure Time with Fionna and Cake #1, I got to talk with Shannon (editor) and Whitney (asst. editor) and shoot them some more ideas which got me more work with them.

GP: How would you describe your job for people?  

PRG: Not as easy as it looks. =) Yes I get to draw for a living, and believe me that’s a dream come true. But just like any job, it has its good days and bad. You definitely have to persevere through the bad days because the good ones are so worth it. With being a freelance artist, you really have to work hard to make sure you get more work. More work means more bills paid but it also means less time to do other things. You don’t have a supervisor to keep you in check, you just have you.

GP: For people who want to pursue a career in what you do, what advice would you give them?  

PRG: Be sure that you really really really want to do this. And I can’t stress that last “really” enough. Anybody can draw, nobody can stop you. But to make a career out of it, you have to be willing to work HARD. Like I mentioned before, being a freelance artist means you have to work harder than everybody else. If you don’t work, you don’t get paid and you can’t pay bills – it’s that simple. You have to be ready to show your work, then show it some more. You have to be willing to learn new techniques and grow as an artist. You’ll have to draw some things that you really don’t want to, but you have to anyway. Always be ready to take some rejections and corrections. But with perseverance and a really strong support system from family/loved ones, it’s absolutely possible and you won’t have to worry about being categorized as a “starving artist.”

GP: Did you have a mentor to help you break into the industry? Do you mentor anyone yourself? 

PRG: I don’t think I had an actual mentor who knowingly helped me break into the industry. Jerry definitely kept me focused because of his determination to break in. But when we were first starting, guys like Jonboy Meyers and Sean Galloway were really the first ones that spoke to us on a real level. They weren’t secretive about how they broke in like most of the other artists we’ve met at the time. These guys understood where we came from and where we were trying to go as artists and really pointed us in the right direction. I suppose that qualifies them as my mentors.

As far me mentoring someone, I don’t think I am. I’m a terrible teacher in my opinion. But if I can spark someone to follow their artistic dream, that’s all I can really hope for.

GP: Do you think women have a more difficult time breaking in and making it in the comic industry, if so why? And if yes, how do you think that can be overcome?

PRG: Yes I do, but not AS difficult as it used to be. As with anything in our society, the established norm is tough to break. Though the comic industry seems to have taken huge leaps in progress in the past couple of decades, it’s still very much a man’s world. Someone like Gail Simone has been extremely important in seeing women gain high recognition and respect from her peers, but she is ONE in an industry of many men around her. There are so many factors to look at, definitely too much to write here. But basically, when you see the age demographics of those that read comics and attend comic cons, it’s easy to see why it’s still very much geared towards men. The comics that were out during the Bronze Age and earlier were very much geared towards boys. And now those boys are men buying comics. Now I’m no history buff so I can’t tell exactly when, but at some point the focus shifted to include girls and women into comic readership. That, however, has been too recent so there’s not as many grown women buying comics YET. Webcomics seem to really lend itself well to female creators and younger audiences that, many times, are also females. These ladies are able to write/draw their own stories without any pretense, and readers (both men and women) really respond to that creative freedom. I think it’s really just a matter of time before women take a more dominant role in the industry as long as we continue to do what we love – whether it’s writing, drawing, or editing. There’s simply too much talent to hold back.

GP: We notice that when it comes to women in the comic industry, BOOM!/Archaia has a lot of diversity present. Why do you think have they succeeded when so many other publishers struggle with this?

PRG: I think the great thing about BOOM!/Archaia is that they’re willing to open their eyes to NEW possibilities. They’re not interested in the same stories that everyone has told, you can get those anywhere. They want truly unique and different approaches to the medium and I think that’s why the diversity is so great with them. They don’t promise brand new stories but hire the same writers/artists/editors to work on them. When you look at a title like Adventure Time, BOOM! has really taken it to so many different tangents. We can all be grateful for Pendleton Ward, that much is certain. But BOOM! has given the audience new stories with Marceline and the Scream Queens, Fionna and Cake, and recently Candy Capers with very strong female creators at the helm! Even when you look at the different variant covers for their books, they’ve really given artists creative freedom with their take on established characters. It just opens up the titles to all sorts of readers. It’s this fearlessness to open the doors to new storytelling that I think allows BOOM!/Archaia to be so successful in creating diversity in the industry.

GP: We’ve heard horror stories concerning women in the industry, have you ever seen or been discriminated/harassed and if so, how did you handle it?  

PRG: I don’t think I’ve ever really dealt with a heavy dose of discrimination/harassment from being a woman in the industry. This may have something to do with being in a studio with three guys and we’re always together at comic cons, I can’t say for certain. I think the main form of discrimination I’ve had to deal with have been from people that come up to our tables at artist alley and just assumed that out of the 3-4 people there, I am the one that just collects the money. Always happens to me, not the other guys. I don’t think they do that maliciously, they just see a woman in a table of three other men and they figure I’m somebody’s wife just there to help out. It doesn’t make me angry so much as it’s just a nuisance. I think when that stops happening, I’ll know that women have become a dominant force in comics. I don’t make a big fuss over it, I just tell them I’ll gladly take someone else’s money and smile. I’m very choosy over my battles I guess.

The other form of discrimination I’ve faced, to a lesser degree, is how surprised people are that I drew the pictures that are in front me. It’s no secret that I like drawing sexy pin-up ladies so maybe that’s surprising to some. But again I don’t make a fuss. I just smile and tell them I drew that. Hopefully if enough women just smile confidently when asked if they drew the pictures that are in front of them, people will stop asking and just know.

GP: What advice do you have for women looking to break into the comic book industry?

PRG: Do you! Draw what you like to see, write what you want to read. It’s that unique vision that you have that makes you an asset to the industry. It doesn’t have to be anything like what’s been established, just do you! You’ll be surprised at how many people really appreciate that individuality.

THE WOODS #1

Retail Price: $3.99
Author: James Tynion IV
Artist: Michael Dialynas
Cover Artists: A: Ramón Pérez B: Matthew Woodson C: Paul Duffield (incentive)

WHY WE LOVE IT: As fans of James Tynion IV’s work in the Batman universe (the upcoming BATMAN ETERNAL, RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS), we were eager to publish his first original comic series. THE WOODS gives us that same eerie, small-town horror feel we get whenever we read a Stephen King novel.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: James Tynion IV is a former protege of BATMAN writer Scott Snyder, so you know he’s learned a lot about how to craft a compelling tale. If you’re a fan of teen conspiracy comics like MORNING GLORIES, SHELTERED, and REVIVAL, you’ll immediately be sucked into THE WOODS.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: On October 16, 2013, 437 students, 52 teachers, and 24 additional staff from Bay Point Preparatory High School in suburban Milwaukee, WI vanished without a trace. Countless light years away, far outside the bounds of the charted universe, 513 people find themselves in the middle of an ancient, primordial wilderness. Where are they? Why are they there? The answers will prove stranger than anyone could possibly imagine.

Retail Price:  $3.99
Authors: Clive Barker and Marc Andreyko
Artist: Piotr Kowalski
Cover Artists: A: Riley Rossmo B: Christopher Mitten (Incentive) C: Mike Mignola (Incentive)

WHY WE LOVE IT: Comics are full of outcast characters, but this is an outcast story, Clive Barker-style. True to this modern horror master’s other work, NIGHTBREED is full of horrifying creatures that captivated us in the 1990 film and live on in this new story. Plus, writer Marc Andreyko is a HUGE fan of NIGHTBREED!

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Before FABLES, before ONCE UPON A TIME, Clive Barker created a secret town of monsters that live among us. Don’t worry if you’ve never seen the film—Barker and writer Marc Andreyko (MANHUNTER) have crafted a story that all horror fans can enjoy. Add to the mix Piotr Kowalski’s art (MARVEL KNIGHTS: HULK) and this is a story that can’t be missed.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: The Nightbreed is a secret society of monsters and misfits that hide away from humans, but have been a part of this world since time immemorial. Explore both the past and the present of this clandestine tribe, unleashing new secrets and horrors as they fight to coexist with mankind.!

BEE AND PUPPYCAT #1

Imprint: KaBOOM!
Retail Price:  $3.99
Authors: Natasha Allegri and Garrett Jackson
Artist: Natasha Allegri
Cover Artists: A. Natasha Allegri  B. Zac Gorman C. Coleman Engle (Incentive) D. Becky Dreistadt (Incentive)

WHY WE LOVE IT: Because Natasha Allegri is simply amazing. She built up a big fan-following on Tumblr while working on the Adventure Time cartoon, then created gender-swapped characters (Fionna and Cake) that became so popular they put them into the show. Then, she created BEE AND PUPPYCAT and it became the most funded web series project in Kickstarter history. How could we NOT publish it?

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: You might already love it if you’re one of the thousands who supported the Kickstarter campaign, but for those of you just joining us, if you like stories that feature magical girls like SAILOR MOON, MADOKA MAGICA, and POWERPUFF GIRLS, you will enjoy BEE AND PUPPYCAT! It’s a slice-of-life story with a twist, and it has so much comedy and enchantment, you can’t help but be swept up.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: It’s a quirky new take on the magical girl genre with Bee, the forever unemployed main character who can’t seem to figure out life, and the mysterious PuppyCat, a stray…whatever it is…that she stumbled across who has a powerful secret. Fighting bad guys has never been so funny.

INTERESTING DRUG OGN HC

Retail Price: $24.99
Author: Shaun Manning
Artist: Anna Wieszczyk
Cover Artist: Scott Newman

WHY WE LOVE IT: If you could take a pill and travel back to any time in your life, where would you go? Writer Shaun Manning hooked us with his fresh sci-fi thriller, illuminating the dangers of living in the past.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: If Richard Linklater (A SCANNER DARKLY) directed a season of BREAKING BAD written by J. J. Abrams, it’d probably be pretty close to what Manning and Wieszczyk have built—a tripped-out psychological thriller full of scrappy anti-heroes and some of the most villainous scum of all space and time.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: When a man from the future recruits average retail worker Andrew Smith to help him create a drug that will allow him to travel through time, Andrew thinks he’s found the way to erase all his problems. However, the power of nostalgia proves to be the strongest of drugs, creating an epidemic of addiction with Andrew as its unwitting kingpin.
