Panel Syndicate Releases Barrier #5, the Final Issue!

Panel Syndicate has announced that Barrier #5, the final installment of the series, is now available on the digital platform. Barrier is by Brian K. Vaughan, Marcos Martin, and Muntsa Vicente.

The digital comic is an unconventional take about aliens and immigration and “about the way language can divide us, by using the (hopefully?) universal language of comics.” As with all comics on the platform it’s pay what you want. Even coming in at an impressive 48 pages of story, it’s still pay what you want as is the previous four issues.

Panel Syndicate has also announced that it will be adding even more series to their platform in addition to Private Eye, Universe!, and Blackhand Ironhead.

Vaughan also announced that starting today, 100% of whatever is earned from contributions for this or any previous issues of Barrier will go directly to Marcos, Muntsa and their family.

Interview with Rebecca Epstein, Author of “Gently Murder Me” a Diary Comic, LIVE this Monday

We’re talking with Rebecca “Rae” Epstein about her promising debut graphic novel Gently Murder Me. It’s a diary comic about the inability to connect with the person one most wants to connect with in the modern, technology-filled world. Writer Rebecca Epstein’s words are enhanced by Kathryn Briggs’, Blakely Inberg’s, Edgar Vega’s, and Mary Safro’s varied and equally skilled styles in the first four volumes, which involve full diary entries. The fifth is a collection of illustrations done by 9 artists, giving readers a peek into a lonely mind. Sad and dark, but relatable, Gently Murder Me seeks to find definition in the world through human longing.

Listen to the conversation LIVE this Monday on Graphic Policy Radio at 10pm ET.

We’ll talk with the author about her unique approach to making comics as well as her critical writings.

Harley Quinn and Batman Gets a Prequel Comic and a Sequel

It’s the team-up we’ve been dreaming of as the cute psychopath Harley Quinn joins the brooding Dark Knight for a brand-new Digital First comic series, Harley Quinn and Batman. The series, from Batman: The Animated Series writer Ty Templeton and artist Rick Burchett, is an exciting new five-chapter prequel adventure to the Batman And Harley Quinn animated film coming out this August from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

Harley Quinn is a legend in her own mind, so when she realizes the Joker thinks of her as a sidekick, she takes her revenge. Harley’s now faced with a hard decision to break out as her own super-villain, and she’s willing to go for it!

The digital series will launch Monday, July 31, with the five chapters being released bi-weekly.

But wait! Where’s the sequel?

Beginning in October, seven sequel chapters will be released digitally each week, and to make it extra-crazy, the names have been flipped! Batman and Harley Quinn is a collection of stories tied to the events of the film. These chapters will feature stories and art by Jeff Parker, Craig Rousseau, Luciano Vecchio, Amanda Deibert, David Hahn, Dario Brizuela, Matthew Dow Smith, Sandy Jarrell, Ty Templeton and more.

All 12 chapters will be collected in trade paperback in summer 2018. Digital chapters will be available for download beginning July 31.
