Alex Ross covers "Pacific Rim" prequel comic
my geek flag is flying for Pacific Rim, the kaiiju-busting giant robot movie helmed by Guillermo Del Toro. The movie is due out in July, but in June, Legendary Comics is dropping a graphic novel prequel called Pacific Rim: Tales From Year Zero, written by Pacific Rim screenwriter Travis Beacham, with pencils by Sean Chen, Yvel Guichet, and Pericles Junior, and inks by Steve Bird and Mark McKenna. So, it's not gonna be wack. Peep the cover art by the mighty Alex Ross below...

You had me at "6 Gun Gorilla"...
"First and foremost, 6 Gun Gorilla is a Western..." says writer Si Spurrier of the new genre-bending pulp revival comic he's working on with artist Jeff Stokely. "There are a few things about it which make that description seem a bit unlikely: it's abstractly set in the future, the majority of the action occurs on another world, the central character has had groundbreaking surgery to turn him into a psychic TV-camera for the thrill-junkies watching back home and, yes, it prominently features a 500-pound gorilla with a pair of enormous guns. But, despite appearances, it oozes Western..."

BOOK REVIEW- "Do I Have to be a Starving Artist in the 21st Century?" by Hisani P. Dubose
I created a piece of art recently about my contempt for the veneration of poverty among artists via the so-called "starving artist" archetype. It's not like I think there is something wrong with making a sacrifice for one's art. But being a so-called "starving artist" should be like being an "intern". Being a Starving Artist is acceptable as a STAGE of a career, but not as a permanent way of life. We as artists have the power to make a living inside of us, but it is a puzzle to solve, a goal to unlock. We need to start with getting the right state of mind. We must apply some of the creativity and hard work we usually reserve for art creation to developing our business acumen and hustle. The "starving artist" mentality complicates the process by undermining the priorities that are required to succeed, until the false virtues of poverty and failure become self-fulfilling prophecies.

"Comics (Art + Industry)" or "Why do bad books sell so well?" by Michael Lagocki
Michael Anthony Lagocki
Samax and I tend to talk about comics a lot. Increasingly, about the business of comics as much as the pop culture aspects. In a recent convo about the state of the industry, he asked me to share some perspective on American comic sales with you. So wrap your hands around a cold can or glass of your favorite beverage, and let's do this...
