Blue Hour Interview

Geekorama had a chance to talk to the creative team behind the book Blue Hour from Action Lab, writer Dino Caruso and artist Chad Cicconi.

What were the best and worse parts of working together to make this comic?

Dino Caruso – The best part of working on BLUE HOUR was my collaboration with Chad (and the rest of the team). It was lots of fun to build this project together and solve the creative problems and see it evolve from an idea to a finished product.

I’m sincere when I say that there was no “worst part”. Working with Chad, and having the fine folks at Action Lab publish this story was a great opportunity and positive all the way!

Chad Cicconi – Best part — Dino had a clear vision of what he wanted and a clear story to tell...

Interview with Joamette Gil Power & Magic Anthology

This is a sort of a multi part question: what led you to make this book? Why make it as an anthology, and what led you to the theme of “magic” for the book?

I made Power & Magic for a lot of reasons. I decided to become a comics publisher to publish what I want to read and pay people what I, as a creator, want to be paid. “Fantasy comics about queer women of color” is, generally speaking, what I want to see more of in the comics scene, so it made sense for the very first thing I published to be purely that. As for the anthology format, that’s just a really smart way to go as a beginning publisher for a number of reasons, not least of which is building a working relationship with many creators at once.

What got you into making comics in the first place?

Haha, I’m one of those infidels who ...

Red Sonja: The Long Walk To Oblivion

The people of Meru are in terrible danger from an ancient evil, and there is only one person who can save them — the Hyrkanian warrior woman, Red Sonja! A lone Meruvian is sent to find Sonja and bring her back east — a treacherous trip that ends in a trap laid by Sonja’s old enemy, the evil wizard Kulan Gath in Red Sonja #0! It’s the adventure set before the new hit series, in this extra-sized one-shot!

This book is a bit odd, because it’s supposed to be the prelude to Issue 0 of the new Red Sonja ongoing.

As you can see below, the page to the left is the end of Long Journey and the one on the right is the end of issue #0.  I call this book odd because Issue 0 came out in December and this book is coming out in May...

The Greatest Adventure #1

In ancient days, Jason gathered the greatest heroes of his age and set out on the ultimate sea voyage. Now, in Tarzan’s era, Jason Gridley does the same. The greatest heroes of the Edgar Rice Burroughs universe come together as the crew of the good ship Venture, with none other than Tarzan as their captain. It’s a race this time, against a battleship of dark hearted villains, and the fate of many worlds hangs in the balance.

I don’t know if I am the best to review this because my last review was on Dynamite’s book Sovereigns where they were putting together all the old Gold Key characters like Turok and Magnus.  This book is the same but this time it was more with all the Edgar Rice Burroughs characters...
