Here is the latest news and releases from Graphicly to read online, iOS or Android
With the launch of our Digital Distribution Platform, we have had more and more amazing stories come across our desks (well, virtually…). Here are three:
Becky Cloonan, from the hotbed of comic talent, Brooklyn, NY via Italy, used the platform to put her great graphic novel, WOLVES, on the web, Facebook, iBooks and other marketplaces. It was named by CBR as one of the top comics of 2011, and it certainly lives up to that billing. Becky describes it as: As a lone hunter tracks an elusive beast through the forest, he reflects on his life and past love through a series of flashbacks, bringing the story to a climax that is as romantic as it is violent. This powerful mini-comic lends itself to multiple read-throughs, never giving concrete answers but (like the best enigmatic endings) leaves your own conclusions satisfying.
Lovers and Kings, written by Steven Juliano has some absolutely amazing art. Taking place in January 1916, Something strange and unclean has been kept hidden under lock and key and starved under the bedroom stairs for three hundred tired winters. It was captured in dreams and vivid nightmares, drowned in oil and buried deep inside the forest floor just east of the moors. The small village of Bezonvaux, France has seen its fare share of death in the past few months. And everything is not as it seems.
And, finally, we highlighted this Kickstarter campaign, Queen Crab, by Jimmy Palmiotti a few months back (if you look closely on the thank you page, you might see my name…), and were excited to see it come out from Image this past Wednesday. As always, Jimmy’s stories are full of interesting twists and turns, and this turn at horror doesn’t disappoint. Its described as: In the tradition of David Lynch and Stephen King comes the story of a young woman dealing with the insanity of the world around her. Meet Ginger, a twenty-something office girl that lives her life one boring day at a time until on her wedding night, her new husband tries to kill her…and it goes horribly wrong. This special hardcover graphic novel is a story of revenge, lust, violence and insanity brought to you by JIMMY PALMIOTTI (Jonah Hex, Painkiller Jane) and featuring the art of ARTIZ EIGUREN, as well as a cover by award winning illustrator SAS CHRISTIAN, and also featuring pin-ups by AMANDA CONNER and more!
