Recently upgraded from a miniseries to an on-going, Lumberjanes from BOOM! Studios has generated a lot of buzz in the comics world. Creators Grace Ellis, Noelle Stevenson and Shannon Watter spoke to ComicsAlliance about how Lumberjanes came to be, the upswelling of support for the book from social media, and, of course, their love of Disney movies.
Put aside your memories of Melissa Joan Hart–the new Sabrina the Teenage Witch series is all about adult, bone-chilling horror. After the success of Afterlife with Archie, creators Roberto Aguirre Sarcasa and Robert Hack are bringing Sabrina into her own series with a comic set in the ’60s that promises serious vintage scares. If the covers are anything to go by, this is a must-read for horror fans like me.
Most people are familiar with Barbarella from the film starring Jane Fonda back in the ’60s, but it was originally based on Jean Claude Forest’s French comics that haven’t seen an English translation since the ’70s. That’s changing thanks to Humanoids new reproduction of the classic sci-fi sex romps that will be scripted by Kelly Sue DeConnick. Coming out later this month in a fancy coffee-table edition, it’s great to see such a notable comic work come back into print.
