SDCC 2014: Star Trek Meets Planet of the Apes!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to “mind-meld” with a sentient ape? Or wanted to see a Klingon on horseback, brandishing a rifle? Readers will soon have a chance to peek into just such an alternate future, as IDW Publishing partners with BOOM! Studios for the crossover event of the year: Star Trek/Planet of the Apes.

IDW will publish the crossover, which will mark the first time BOOM! Studios has partnered with another publisher on a series. Together they will bring Star Trek, licensed by CBS Consumer Products, and 20th Century Fox’s Planet of the Apes together in a way that is sure to delight existing fans and make new ones. The series will pair the original U.S.S. Enterprise crew with Taylor, Nova and the cast from the original Planet of the Apes film.

The creative team will be a mix of proven experience and new blood with scripts by beloved Star Trek scribes Scott and David Tipton and interior art and covers by the British newcomer Rachael Stott.

Demo-Graphics: The State of Indie/Small Press Comics

Earlier today we brought you demographic reports based off of Facebook data for Marvel, and DC. Up next is independent/small press comics! Basically, everyone not the “big two.”

For this report I looked at comic book publisher likes that are not the big two or part of the big two. For this report, Vertigo, Zuda, Icon, are not included though they share similar comics as to other in this report. For this report, terms like IDW Publishing, BOOM! Studios, Fantagraphics were included. Manga was left out of this as well.

In 2013 62 terms were used to generate these stats. In 2014 that number has shrunk to 49. However Facebook updated their system in late 2013, returning more data than ever before. Both reports just focused on individuals in the United States.

Facebook Population: Over 3,200,000 in the United States

The indie/small press population has grown since last year by about 1.2 million individuals.

In 2013 Spanish speakers accounted for 13.00%. In 2014, that percentage dipped a bit, and is now 12.5%.

Gender and Age

In 2013 men accounted for 54% of the population and women 46%. A year later, that has shifted a bit with men now accounting for 57.50% and women 40.63%. In the growth since last year, it was almost 2:1 men.

Here’s the changes of the stats since last year.

indie changeHere’s the stats for gender.

indie gender 7.24.14This is how gender changes as far as percent over age.

indie gender age 7.24.14And the raw data.

indie gender age raw 7.24.14Relationship Status

Since 2013, Facebook updated this statistic so there’s more choices than ever, so it’s a bit difficult to compare this year to last year. Here’s the statistics as they stand for 2014.

indie relationship status 7.24.14And for those that like pie charts.

indie relationship status pie chart 7.24.14Education

This statistic too has changed since 2013. Here’s the expanded data as it stands this year.

indie education 7.24.14Gender Interest

This statistic too has changed since last year, with more options. Compared to 2013 though, men interested in men is roughly the same when you include the “men and women” option. Women interested in women though has dipped.

Joe Kubert’s Enemy Ace: Artist’s Edition

Bob Kanigher (w) • Joe Kubert (a & c)

In 1968, Bob Kanigher and Joe Kubert launched a new kind of war book, one that showed military conflicts from the other side of the coin. Thought by many to be Kubert’s most powerful work, Enemy Ace told the story of a World War I flyer who had a keen sense of honor and deep-rooted nobility. Kubert took this new concept and rose to the challenge. Today Enemy Ace remains one of Kubert’s great achievements. Collecting Star Spangled War Stories #139, 140, 141, 142 144 (and added bonuses!), this Artist’s Edition will be beautiful from top to bottom!

Popeye: The Classic Newspaper Comics by Bobby London: Volume Two: 1989-1992

Bobby London (w & a & c)

When we say “complete,” we mean COMPLETE! Bobby London’s take on the Sailor Man has often been overshadowed by his being fired from the strip in 1992, ostensibly for presenting a storyline that was an allegory about abortion. King Features Syndicate pulled the final three weeks of strips and daily newspapers began running reprints. Story over in mid-stream.

Now, 22 years later, thanks to the kind cooperation of the good folks at King Features, those three weeks will be included in this second volume of our series. But wait… that’s not all! Turns out that Bobby London produced an additional six weeks of strips beyond the three that were pulled from syndication!
