Press Release from Prism Comics:

Los Angeles, CA-  Michael Troy and Lethally Blonde Productions (Going Gaga!, The Blonde Squad) are offering an exclusive, extremely limited, signed, and numbered Amy Winehouse memorial print.


"Tragic news of the talented singer/songwriter's passing came when I was at San Diego Comic-Con pimping my Lady Gaga tribute book, Going Gaga! Having always been a fan of Winehouse, I was inspired to do this image to honor her.  What can I yell you?  I have a soft spot in my heart for tortured genius.  I wanted to make her look pretty and threw in a tip of the hat to one of my favorite artists, Patrick Nagel.  After posting it on Facebook and having people react very strongly to it, I decided to make it available as an exclusive print.  And that is that," said Troy of the inspiration behind the Winehouse image.


"Amy Winehouse: Fade to Black" is a limited edition 11" x 16" glossy print, signed, numbered, and limited to only 125 copies.  It is available for purchase for $7.00, available exclusively through the Prism Comics' online store.

The winning response
:
So many to choose from, of course. But a favorite has been "You Know I'm No Good." Her rich, soulful voice just bursts through every lyric. I still get chills when I hear it. So sad she is gone, but her legacy will last a very VERY long time. RIP Amy.

The winner will be notified by email. Congratulations, and thank you to everyone who entered.  It was a pleasure to read all of the comments from such devoted fans of Amy Winehouse.

The following is an interview with Michael Anthony Steele and Scott McFadden, co-creators of the visionary new independent comic book app, Clown Commandos.  The story follows a brigade of clowns from an alternate universe where clowns evolved into an elite fighting force that was anything but a joke.  Having made their way into the present day, this humorous, yet deadly, troupe does its best to fight crime while trying to find their way home.  Not only is the premise of the comic exciting, but so is the fact that it was built specifically for iDevices (the iPhone, iPad, and iPodTouch).

 

Below, Steele and McFadden talk to Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon about the concept behind Clown Commandos, its broad audience appeal, and what fans can expect from the inventive digital app.

This interview was conducted on Friday, July 22nd, 2011.
