The Reason for DragonsWelcome back to The PREVIEWS Party, the blog that looks at the coolest, new comic books and graphic novels available to pre-order from this month’s Previews magazine.

In this month’s PREVIEWS magazine, Archaia showed off a new graphic novel called The Reason for Dragons. This original story, written by Chris Northrop and illustrated by Jeff Stokely, promises to capture the imagination of readers much like the films The Neverending Story, E.T., and The Goonies did. I sat down with Chris Northrop to talk about what inspired this cool new tale about knights and dragons in our modern world.

Khaos Komix*Please note that the subject matter discussed in the interview contains adult content and is for mature readers only.


One of my favorite webcomics, Khaos Komix, recently came to a planned end, and I felt it was the best time to find out just what goes on in the mind of its creator, Tab Kimpton.  Much of the webcomic has a personal significance for Kimpton, given the information I’ve gleamed in conversation and looking on the comic’s website, as the subject matter has touched both myself and my fellow FBCer, Kristine Chester, deeply; however, because of said subject matter and the artistic style used, a lot of the webcomic is considered mature content and not geared toward children, so be careful when reading it.  Now, thanks to some friendly emails between the two of us, I was able to have an interview with Kimpton about Khaos Komix and other ideas.

This interview was conducted on February 27, 2013. 

GI Joe 1Welcome back to The PREVIEWS Party, the blog that looks at the coolest, new comic books and graphic novels available to pre-order from this month’s Previews magazine.

One of the best books of last month was IDW’s G.I. Joe #1 by Fred Van Lente and Steve Kurth. This book offered a new jumping on point for readers and a new status quo for the Joes. The PREVIEWS Party recently got a chance to talk with Fred Van Lente about the new series.

Uncanny Skullkickers 1Welcome back to The PREVIEWS Party, the blog that looks at the coolest, new comic books and graphic novels available to pre-order from this month’s Previews magazine.

Anyone who has read my blogs or reviews before has heard me rave about the amazingly talented writer Jim Zub, and how he brings a modern humor and sensibility to the fantasy genre. Well, I recently got to chat with him about his upcoming books and the importance of a kind of grassroots fandom in indie comics. Here’s what he had to say.

Strange Attractors Autograph CardWelcome back to The Preview Party, the blog that looks at the coolest, new comic books and graphic novels available to pre-order from this month’s Previews magazine.

This April, Archaia will be releasing another big, beautiful hardcover, Strange Attractors, which is a wonderful story from Charles Soule about two mathematicians who learn that the smallest of actions can have a major impact. I had the pleasure of speaking with Soule about his new book. Here’s what he had to say.

Polarity 1Welcome back to The Preview Party, the blog that looks at the coolest, new comic books and graphic novels available to pre-order from this month’s Previews magazine.

While flipping through Previews, a beautiful cover caught my eye for a book called Polarity. As I read more about the book, I couldn’t help but be intrigued by the idea of Say Anything front man Max Bemis writing a comic about a bipolar man who get superpowers whenever he goes off his meds. Luckily, I was able to reach out to BOOM! Studios, the book's publisher, to set up an interview with Bemis. Here’s what he had to say about this unique, new miniseries.

BOOM! Studios recently announced that they will be adding Regular Show to their line of all-ages comics based off Cartoon Network’s hugely popular cartoons. The Preview Party had the opportunity to ask series writer K.C. Green a few questions about the new series.

Fanboys vs Zombies 9Welcome back to The Preview Party, the blog that looks at the coolest, new comic books and graphic novels available to pre-order from this month’s Previews magazine.

Fanboys vs. Zombies is an incredibly fun series from BOOM! Studios about to enter its second year of stories. I recently sat down with writer Shane Houghton to discuss the upcoming story arc and get his opinion about some cool, new, upcoming comics.
