Review: Valiant High #1

valiant-high_001_cover_lafuenteToday, Valiant and comiXology has released the latest comiXology Original, Valiant High #1. Written by Daniel Kibblesmith, the series is a new and unique take on the Valiant universe and characters.

Before they became legends, the world’s most formidable heroes were roaming the halls at Valiant High – a super-powered preparatory academy where Aric “X-O Manowar” Dacia is a record-setting running back, Colin “Ninjak” King is a debonair foreign exchange student, and Coach Bloodshot is way, way too into dodgeball. Now, Amanda “Livewire” McKee and her best friend, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert, are taking it all in for the first time at the one high school where power trumps popularity!

The digital debut of Valiant High is full of fun taking the familiar Valiant heroes and throwing them into a new situation, high school. Each in their own way are distilled down to their basic core. Writer Daniel Kibblesmith makes it works, it works really well, by playing off of tropes and types, the first issue feels familiar but at the same time fresh considering the characters involved.

“Teen” stories tend to feel similar in so many ways involving the outcast, the jock, the popular girl/guy, the burnout, some mix of all of that, and that’s all here with a charm and fun about it that it reminds me a bit of a comedic Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, and Not Another Teen Movie. We’re introduced to each character and get a good sense of their archetype in a first issue that nails it all when it comes to that. And while much of the issue is setup, there’s still a little bit of conflict to keep things interesting.

The art by Derek Charm and David Baron is fantastic translating each character into their teen self, with a couple of characters acting as teachers. The art is what really helps draw out the comedy of the issue with some fantastic moments involving Bloodshot who’s the driver ed teacher in a look that feels like it’d work perfectly in an animated show.

The first issue is a great debut and while it relies on familiar character types and conflict, the use of classic Valiant characters in this new setting is fresh and entertaining. I can’t wait to see what the further issues bring and hopefully we get some more.

ComiXology Originals Launches Today with Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular

atmls_coverComiXology launches their comiXology Originals program today with the fun, all-ages title Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular from BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network Enterprises. Unveiled last October, comiXology Originals is a new program featuring exclusive comic content available only on comiXology and Kindle. Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular is available today for $3.99 on comiXology and Kindle or free at launch to comiXology Unlimited subscribers and as part of the comiXology Unlimited 30-day free trial.

Based on Cartoon Network’s Emmy and Peabody Award-winning Adventure Time, the Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular from BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network Enterprises features the fan-favorite character Marshall Lee, the Vampire King. Marshall Lee is the male counterpart of Marceline the Vampire Queen from the hugely popular Fionna and Cake universe.

Framed by a fully painted cover by cartoonist Fábio Moon, the 22-page Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular contains three all-new original Marshall Lee stories and an original song:

  • “Not Funny” by writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Audrey Mok. The lead story features New York Times bestselling writer Mariko Tamaki (This One Summer, Supergirl) with artist Audrey Mok (Josie and the Pussycats) and follows Marshall Lee and his uncontrollable laughter at unfunny things.atmls_its_hard_not_to_be_bad_preview
  • “The Bravest Prince” by Melanie Gillman and artist Trungles. Writer Melanie Gillman (As the Crow Flies) teams up with artist Trungles (Fresh Romance) for a story in which Prince Gumball witnesses Marshall Lee’s fear of…flowers.
  • “Disqualified” by S.M. Vidaurri and artist Asia Kendrick-Horton. Writer S.M. Vidaurri (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Witches) joins with artist Asia Kendrick-Horton (Steven Universe) for a story in which Prince Gumball attempts to win a competition by trying to be more villainous than Marshall Lee.
  • “It’s Not Hard To Be Bad” Written and drawn by S.M. Vidaurri. Vidaurri closes out the issue by composing a song for Marshall Lee to sing while playing guitar in a spectacular one pager.

In addition to this exciting launch, comiXology is having a BOOM! Studios discount sale on an array of Adventure Time comic books and trades. Readers new and old can stock up and save today through January 23rd.

The Comics Are All Right: Build Your Own Community

I began these articles last year to move some of the discussion surrounding the state of the comic industry away from “opinion” and “anecdotes” and towards facts and data. You can check out what I’ve written before but beyond looking at sales data, the goal is to also look at other data available such as analytics, Facebook demographics, and also talk to creators directly to see what does and doesn’t work.

For this new year, I felt it good to focus on at least one best practice for publishers and creators, building an email list and social networking presence, your own community. But, beyond just going over “how to’s’ as far as building a community or why it’s a good idea, I thought I’d take a different spin and see what we can learn from the data available and answer a question:

What’s the overlap of “fans” of publishers?

There’s no way to really figure out if the folks who purchase comics are loyal to one publisher, many publishers, or maybe a select few. “Sales” data reported is estimated sales from distributors to stores, we don’t know what stores sell directly to customers, whether it’s physical or digital sales.

So what can we look at to figure this out?

First, there’s Facebook data. Twice a month I report on data derived from Facebook looking at the demographics of those who “like” comics. But we can do more than just report on the age, we can also see how many people like two different pages, publisher a AND publisher b.

What I’ve done is look at the amount of US likes a publisher has (I’ve also included Amazon and comiXology because more on that below and why these particular publishers are explained as well) and then also looked at how many likes those two pages shared in the US. Below is the results in percent and I think the results are really interesting.

us-publisher-overlap-1-2-17

To read an example 61.90% of comiXology’s Facebook “likes” also “like” Amazon. We can see the percents vary greatly, but what stands out to me tis that the overlap is not as much as you think. This isn’t the same fans liking a bunch of different publishers, it’s clear that in same cases some publishers have really built a niche and audience all their own.

One data point is nice, what about two?

Well, this is how this thought exercise began. My day job is working in email and monitoring deliverability, trends, spam, really boring stuff. But, this also gives me access to see how email programs are performing (opens, clicks) and also how much email lists overlap! So, what do we see when it comes to email lists?

us-publisher-email-overlap

The above were chosen to start because they’re all publishers or platforms I regularly get email from and signed up for (I’m particularly fascinated by Amazon’s email program). So, at some point this will all expand, but you need to start somewhere. Amazon’s emails are impressive and they do at least one weekly email for fans of comics, that in particular is why I’ve watched them. But I digress…

What above represents is how many people are on each list. For example 38% of Valiant’s list is also on comiXology’s. Again, like Facebook we see that the overlap varies and that generally people aren’t signing up for everyone. Valiant’s percents are particularly high due to a smaller list size.

So what does this mean?

It means that each of these publishers have a captive and unique audience for them to talk to. They have people who clearly care about them to pitch their releases each and every week. It’s as simple as that. As a publisher, a creator, you should be doing everything to build your community, because from what we see above, that community is probably pretty unique and want to hear from you, and possibly just you!

So, here’s a resolution publishers and creators should be making this year, build your community! Then use it to sell some comics!
