Becky Cloonan is coming to Escapist Comics on Wednesday 10/18 and we couldn't be more excited! Becky is a brilliant and accomlished artist and writer. She was the 1st female artist to draw the main Batman title in 2012. She's worked for almost every publisher in the industry. Her work with Brian Wood on Demo was nominated for 2 Eisner Awards. She also did the art for the True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, written by Gerard Way & Shaun Simon. Most recently she has written Punisher for Marvel and from Image Comics, Southern Cross which is part science fiction, part horror/mystery, all fantastically weird and original. By Chance or Providence also has hit the shelves, recently recolored, this collection of short stories is hauntingly beautiful with each story having it's own compelling theme. The only thing bad about this collection is that it will leave you wanting more. She's done so much.
Just make sure you make it to this signing. We're so lucky have her!
Get together with a group of people who (like you) read comics and want to talk about them. Each month we discuss a different graphic novel. It is a great way to expose yourself to a comic that you might not have tried if were not for that friend who suggested it. The reading selections are nominated by group members and chosen by the group, and all of us are (yes) friends having met at the group.
This month we are reading:
On the planet Meta, young Loma steals the madness coat that once belonged to Rac Shade and makes a break across galaxies to take up residence in a new body: Earth girl Megan Boyer. Only now Loma learns that Megan was a bully whom everyone hated, and Loma has to survive high school with the ever-growing and uncontrollable madness at her side-not to mention there are people back on her homeworld who might just want Shade's coat back.
Our selection for the next month is
Hosted by Escapist Comic Staff (Jessica Balboni and Jesse Hett), the Escapist Comics Podcast features reviews of the current week's comics and insightful and often comedic looks at comics today, comic book movies, tv, celebrities, and sometimes a bit of gossip. If it looks like a comic and smells like a comic, it's fair game. Many of the podcasts feature comic creator interviews. Those who have appeared on the podcast include Rick Remender, Brian Wood, Alex de Campi, Becky Cloonan, Matteo Pizzolo, Matthew Rosenberg, Babs Tarr, Jason Latour and countless others. (well maybe it's a number you can count to but that doesn't sound anywhere as good as "countless", does it?)

This is directed to the contestants of our "When Does Wolverine Come Back to Life" contest. We still have the ballots and the prize but, according to the contest definition of what qualifies as back to life (actual Logan, no clone, no fauverines), he is still DEAD. All New Wolverine is a woman ,Old Man Logan came from another universe, and Secret Wars solved nothing. Keep waiting... Rumors abound.Back to top
