Well, boom! There are lots of new comics this week and quite a wide range too, from superhero comics to sci-fi, horror, and indie accents abounding. Maybe it's just me but the energy seems to be increasing as publishers head toward spring, and certainly there are a host of solicits out there clamoring for spring […]
This is me, watching Jonathan Ross last night, while reading the first issue of Jonathan Ross' new comic, Revenge. It's tempting to see this comic in the spirit of the Revenge tragedy plays of the Jacobean and Elizabethan eras. And it holds true, if seen through the filter of cosmetic surgery, the Hollywood machine and […]
I do like Gosh Comics of London. And Gosh Comics like comics. Lots of them. And in March they have a lot to show for it, announcing British Comics Month. Let's have a look at what they, and others, have planned for the month of March… Now until March 9th – Alone Forever, An Exhibition […]
My parents now live in Banbury, Oxfordshire. Not too much happens there, and that's pretty much the way they like it. And there's a train to London so they can see the grandkids. I was up there this past Sunday. Not much was happening. Even the comic shop was closed. It won't be closed on […]
Bleeding Cool wrote about the Jonathan Ross/Ian Churchill comic, Revenge, coming out in a week and a bit. How it was originally called The Revenger but the existence of a webcomic with a similar name caused it to be renamed Revenge. And a trademark was registered in that new name on behalf of both Ross […]
British broadcaster, comedian and presenter, Jonathan Ross has written a number of comics of late, including Turf and America's Got Powers. But for his new series, Revenge, with Ian Churchill, it seems just writing the damn thing is not enough. He's pencilled a cover too. An exclusive cover, available only at Forbidden Planet, we also […]
A Convention With Jonathan Ross Jonathan Ross and Ian Churchill have confirmed they will be guests at the London Super Comic Con in March, there to promote their new Image comic book, Revenge. So expect an awful lot of UK-based publicity when it comes round. Also, I'm hoping not to be as sick as a […]
Previewed in last week's Elephantmen, Jonathan Ross and Ian Churchill's The Revenger from Image Comics, will undergo a name change by the time it's published January. I'm told it will now be called "Revenge" but the lead character will still be called The Revenger. Turns out another webcomic had the same name (it might be […]
Bleeding Cool has been following the upcoming publication of The Revenger by Jonathan Ross and Ian Churchill for some time now. This week, we get a better look at the comic with a five page preview ahead of next month's publication, in Elephantmen #52, working as a flip book to the comic. And for those […]
We'd talked about this before. A couple of times. But now it's hit the schedules for February 2014. Jonathan Ross and Ian Churchill's new comic for Image, The Revenger. Regular readers will know just how big Jonathan Ross is in the UK. Basically, he's John Stewart as a chatshow host with the comparative audience of […]
Tomorrow sees the publication of America's Got Powers #7. It's been a time coming. You might be advised to catch up on issues 1 to 6 tonight, in preparation. Because the concluding issue does something rather interesting. Up until now, we've had a power play, between those affected by powers, the government, the military, the […]
[audio:http://popculturehound.net/podpress_trac/web/2588/0/PCHPodcastEpisode55.mp3] At the NICE comics convention in Bedford last weekend, Chris Thompson talked to Ian Churchill for an hour and a half. Towards the end, he touched on The Revenger, his new comic with Jonathan Ross, as the complete opposite of Marineman. With Jacobean influences, 1970s influences, its original title was Frankenstein 90210. And he […]
We said this was coming a while ago. Now, courtesy of Bleeding Cool, it has a date. And a teaser image. The Revenger, by Jonathan Ross and Ian Churchill, to be published in January. Ross has Image titles Turf and America's Got Powers to his name but is better known in the UK as the […]
At San Diego Comic Con, Bleeding Cool broke the rumour that John Romita Jr, dissatisfied with contractual arrangements with Marvel, was considering not renewing his Marvel contract, and taking up DC Comics' offer of Superman. We were told by Marvel reps that it was just a mix up over e-mails and everything would be smoothed […]
By Rich Johnston. It's true. You won't have seen my name or that of Bleeding Cool's on the nomination, but I won it all the same. Or co-won. Or I was part of an ensemble. Or I held on to someone else's coat tails. But two San Diego Comic Cons ago, I met Mike Richardson […]
Last night the comic industry gave out the prestigious Eisner Awards. The Comicon folks were kind enough to put up a complete list of winners and we had our own Hannah Means-Shannon on site taking photos. The awards are the industry equivalent to the Oscars with awards presented by The Nerdist's Chris Hardwick, TV personality and writer Jonathan Ross, best selling author Neil Gaiman and actors John Barrowman and James […]
They did it again… but this time with a twist. Selected highlights from the end of the Eisner Awards held at San Diego Comic Con 2013. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGWiF126IF4[/youtube] And this is how it played out last decade…. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIDTTKdxbT0[/youtube]
I understand that Jonathan Ross will join Neil Gaiman as guest presenters during the upcoming Eisner Awards ceremony this Friday. The last time they stood together on a stage, this happened. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8NxWnMhlso[/youtube] From another angle. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIDTTKdxbT0[/youtube] Of course, they wouldn't want to repeat themselves. So… what will they do?
