Valkyrie SquadronRight off the bat, I can tell you that if you like Battlestar Galactica, you’ll probably dig Valkyrie Squadron by artist/writer Jules Rivera.  


In this sci-fi soap opera, a space-hopping human race is in the midst of an all-out war with a swarming army of aggressive robots called Autodrones.  While it’s not immediately clear where these “Drones” came from, what they want, or whether it’s Earth or some other Earth-like planet that the humans are defending, none of that really matters as you become instantly engrossed in the characters.    

 

Jimmy Brass 1I love film noir.  I love the seedy worlds, the anti-heroes, the clipped, witty dialogue.  But, I think more than all of that I love the mystery: how people, places, and objects are never what they seem, how you always have the sense that you’re walking on a trap door and, at any moment, it all could drop out from under you.  And, I love that, in the end, everything falls into place.  It isn’t always how you want it to turn out.  Heck, it isn’t often how you want it to turn out, but it always makes a funny kind of sense.  Writer Jake Dickerman and artist Jason Pruett deliver all of that in spades in their new comic, Jimmy Brass: 2nd Grade Detective.     

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."
