LA Ink Stains

In the third part of this epic interview, artist/writer Jim Mahfood, aka Food One, talks with Fanboy Comics about Los Angeles Ink Stains published by Image Comics. Releasing June 20th, Ink Stains is the first printed edition collection of Jim Mahfood's autobiographical webcomic. The graphic memoir gives readers an insider's POV to the underground/lowbrow art scene unique to LA, and tells the story of one artistic hustler's rise to the middle. As emergent writer/performer Herbert Russell aptly states in the book's 6-page intro, "Ink Stains is bottomless baskets of adrenaline nachos shot through a peristaltic wave of hedonism, neurosis, and gonzo documentary."

Buffy S9 10Writers Andrew Chambliss and Scott Allie wrap up the latest story arc, “Apart (of me),” and Buffy’s time as a one-armed robot in Issue #10 of Buffy: Season 9. While the issue features a couple of great scenes and the arc wraps up leaving us wondering what’s to come next, the end of this chapter of Season 9 seems to lack the “omph!” that is desperately desired.

Stan Lee Comikaze ExpoDear Fanboy Comics Readers:


Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo is at it again, with exciting news about their recent partnership with Advanstar, one of the world’s largest producers of trade shows and events.  Advanstar will be assisting the convention in expanding its brand on a global scale, well in advance of its Los Angeles event on September 15-16, 2012.


Beasts of the SOuthern WildEvery once in a while, a film pulls away from every comfortable storytelling convention viewers have come to know and expect. Somehow, the story moves like poetry through its world and its events, creating its own rules; as a result, the story becomes more than a film. It becomes a feeling that has the ability to profoundly affect each viewer in its own way. Somehow, that film makes more sense than any tightly-written movie that premiered with it at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. For this year, that film is Beasts of the Southern Wild.  

Batwing with Review52 Catch Up is a series devoted to looking at issues from DC's New 52 and seeing how they're faring now that they're underway, why they're worth reading (or not), and places we hope they will go in time.

 

 

Concept:

David Zavimbe has a dream to make the streets of Tinasha in The Democratic Republic of the Congo safe. With the help of Batman's funding and gadgets, he dons the identity of Batwing and battles the threats no one else can in Tinasha.
