Me and Joshua Dysart talking about the big ideas in Imperium along with his thoughts on the potential Harbinger movie.
Joshua Dysart’s Imperium, published by Valiant Comics and drawn by Doug Braithwaite, has taken comics into new territory. Beware that this interview may contain minor spoilers. Already known for hi...

Madefire just keeps building steam with the Motion Book. Good news for fans of Top Cow's The Darkness.
It looks like Madefire keeps building steam as they get set to launch Top Cow's The Darkness from Marc Silvestri. Making it’s Motion book debut today with issues 1 & 2, The Darkness will subsequently be released bi-weekly. Marc Silvestri’s popular title has a touch of evil to it that is perfectly suited for the Motion Book treatment. “The Darkness is one of the seminal books to emerge from the Image revolution of the 90s, and it’s as...

Another fantastic issue from Joshua Dysart, Clayton Henry, and Brian Reber.
Review: Harbinger #20 by Joshua Dysart, Clayton Henry, and Brian Reber I’m not much of a believer in destiny, but it’s hard to argue that Joshua Dysart was born to write Harbinger. I mean, he’s probably got a lot of other great things he has, is, or will be doing too, but his run on Harbinger to date has been nothing short of outstanding. Consider issue 20, which hit stands this week. It’s simply another masterpiece kick starting the latest ...

Why Imperium by Joshua Dysart may be the most important comic on the stands.
Joshua Dysart writes one comic title per month – Valiant Comics’ Imperium. For established writers with his track record, that is unusual, and Dysart is not want for work. He’s simply focusing on w…

It's been a while since I've posted up on the blog, but comic legend Jim Steranko finally expounded and explicated on an idea I've felt at the heart of comic creation: the connection between music and comics. I have captured and edited his tweets into a linear format for easy reading. My comic book friends should really give this a read.

http://davegillette.com/post/110516060605/for-the-past-five-years-ive-been-writing-a-story
For the past five years, I’ve been writing a story that was originally intended to be made as a graphic novel about an protagonist who is guided by music in his journey to find his place in existence. It was influenced by my own life journey as well as time spent as a musician and in the music industry. As I began scripting this story, I began to feel it had found the perfect medium because the scripting process for the story felt quite natura...

Another fine story from Tim Gibson.
Review: The Reservoir by Tim Gibson Tim Gibson, the powerhouse talent behind Moth City, takes a different path by going backwards with his latest work The Reservoir: A Western in Black, White, and Blood. This is a flashback story, telling the origin  story of Governor McCaw and his daughter in a land and time well before the present day conflict of Moth City. Gibson takes a unique approach to the narrative by telling his story exclusive thr...

So yeah...fuck Coachella
And That Coachella Thing (A.K.A. Hipster Central)… The annual festival revered amongst hipsters worldwide has announced their line-up. While I’m certainly glad to see Outkast is back, I will not be one of those people torturing myself for three days as hipsters yuck it up about music they really could care less about. Once upon a time, when the music industry was still a viable institution, I went to the first Coachella when it was just a on...

No big surprise here, but boy does that suck
Disney Announces Star Wars Comic License Goes to (You Guessed It) Marvel! While it’s not shocking or surprising, but certainly disappointing, Disney officially announced that Marvel Entertainment will be taking over the comic book license for Star Wars from Dark Horse Comics. This does takes things full circle for the comic license, which was originally Marvel’s from 1977 up until Dark Horse took over in 1991. In some ways, you could look at...
