Big Planet Comics Orbit Newsletter - April 6, 2012



Big Planet Comics

April 6, 2012

AvX Party Down

Thanks for everyone who came to our early releases parties for Avengers vs. X-Men #1 last week! Comics were bought, buttons were worn, cupcakes were eaten. Interestingly, most people seemed pretty split about who they were rooting for, or thought would win, with the X-Men being slightly ahead. So now we'll be all high tech! You can answer on our poll on our facebook page, with bonus points given for explaining why you chose one or the other! https://www.facebook.com/questions/381708751869539/

And it is only about 1 week until Justin Jordan and Tradd Moore will be signing at our Vienna and College Park stores for the release of the collection of The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, their violent take on superheroes! The limited edition poster to the right will be for sale for only $5! More information is below.

Don't forget, the Big Planet Comics Podcast now has a call-in phone number, so send us some questions or comments! Call 1-703-539-CAST! (1-703-539-2278)

Feel free to forward on our newsletter, and please send us any comments or mailing list requests to vienna@bigplanetcomics.com

Thanks!

Danger Club #1

by Landry Quinn Walker and Eric Jones

When all the adult superheroes go into space to fight a cosmic menace, but never return, what do the teen sidekicks do? Some try to take over the world, others worry that the Earth is still in danger. A nice twist on the superhero universe, and some good action to start!

Flex Mentallo: Man of Muscle Mystery HC

by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely

The near-legendary miniseries is finally back in print! Flex Mentallo, superpowered muscle man, takes us on a strange trip into the head of Grant Morrison, as Flex tries to discover the reality of his world, even as the comics page changes around him and a dying pop star tries to remember if he created Flex in his head as a child. Hyper reality, crazy action, awesome Quitely art!

Annie Sullivan and the Trials of Helen Keller HC

by Joseph Lambert

Ignatz Award-winner Joseph Lambert tells the tale and life of Annie Sullivan, the formerly-blind activist who taught Helen Keller to sign and was her lifelong companion. A fascinating look at the expectations of the time, and difficult and nuanced relationship between Annie and Helen, all illustrated with a great style showing how Helen slowly learns to name the strange world around her.

Fanboys vs. Zombies #1

by Sam Humphries and Jerry Gaylord

A group of friends get together for their annual Comicon trip, but internal drama has turned some of them against each other. Then, of course, zombie apocalypse! Who would know better how to survive one? But will they stick together or just die alone? Written by new up and comer Sam Humphries (Our Love is Real, Sacrifice).

Fwd: Big Planet Comics Orbit Newsletter - March 22, 2012


Big Planet Comics

March 23, 2012

Reap the Corto Maltese Whirlwind

Well, all of us here at Big Planet Comics were pretty disappointed by the poor production quality on the new Corto Maltese book, as well as it being a later version that edited down the original art to present in a different format. So we published an open letter to the publisher. Then the internet exploded.

We wrote up a post on our website showing the poor production quality, and how the later version they had used was vastly inferior to the original edition. The publisher put out their reply, and tweets galore went out. Comics news sites covered it in several places, with some very interesting commentary from the European side of things, and many arguing for and against it. In any case, we sincerely hope that the next volume (or version) of Corto Maltese, and any import/reprint/translation, lives up to the excellent current standards of comics that we are seeing these days.

If you missed it, here's our first open letter with commentary by Heidi Macdonald at the Comics Beat: http://www.comicsbeat.com/2012/03/19/horrible-production-may-have-doomed-corto-maltese-in-the-us-yet-again/

Our post about the book with lots of examples comparing to older editions: http://www.bigplanetcomics.com/how-to-destroy-a-comics-classic

The publisher's reply is covered at http://www.comicsbeat.com/2012/03/20/more-on-corto-maltese-rizzoli-responds-on-production-problems/

Also, the Big Planet Comics Podcast now has a call-in phone number if you'd like to leave us a question or comment! Call 703-539-2278!

Plus, you know, betrayal and swordfighting and monsters! Such good art!
