09:14 am - Velocity Comics Newsletter week of 2/6/06 to 2/12/06
Hello, all...

Sad news this week in the comics world: we lost one of the greats, before he had the chance to fully make his mark on comics. Seth Fisher, artist of FANTASTIC FOUR/IRON MAN: BIG IN JAPAN, GREEN LANTERN: WILLWORLD, and FLASH: TIME FLIES (to name a few) died January 30th. He was young (early 30's) and had an amazing career ahead of him. You can check out his art in any of the aforementioned titles, or by visiting his website, Flowering Nose.

UPDATE: Ryan Kelly is unfortunately unable to attend our big signing this weekend. Scheduling conflicts arose...he will be missed, but we're still going to have a blast. Check our poster for all the info, if you've not been properly inundated. This Saturday (February 11) from 2-5 we're having a huge comics signing party with Brian Wood, Becky Cloonan, Jim Rugg, Farel Dalrymple, Tom Scioli, Jasen Lex, Rick Spears and Rob G. It's gonna rock, make sure to stop by!

COMIC NEWS: The new Wolverine creative team has been announced: Mark Guggeheim will be writing, and fan favorite Humberto Ramos will be illustrating. Ramos is an unconventional choice for Wolvie, but I suspect I'll be pleased. What do you think? Visit the Newsarama for a peek, as well as Ed Brubaker revealing the roster for his run on UNCANNY X-MEN.

PICKS: I've been waiting for this one for a while, and it didn't disappoint: Marvel is unleashing Planet Hulk on us! INCREDIBLE HULK #92 begins a year-long story-line putting the Hulk in situations in which you've never seen. Written by Greg Pak, who might just be one of the greats in waiting. Additionally, we have TALES DESIGNED TO THRIZZLE #2 from Michael Kupperman and Fantagraphics. Many regard #1 of this bizarro series among the funniest comics ever. I'm inclined to agree. It's a light week for DC, as their most prominent release is the months-late SUPERGIRL #4, replete with a swanky variant cover showcasing quite a surprising side to artist Ian Churchill. And finally, Drawn and Quarterly unveils Dylan Horrocks' LOOOONG awaited second issue of ATLAS.

LIVEJOURNAL: Velocity Comics has opened a livejournal account, which will allow me and my employees to wax rhapsodic our opinions on funnybooks. I'm new at this, so be gentle with me. Read along at velocitycomics.
