“Joe Keatinge has established himself as the latest new writer I want to undermine and destroy. It’s just top class stuff.”
- Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Civil War, Wanted, Ultimates)
"I think Joe is definitely one to watch."
- Robert Kirkman (Walking Dead, Invincible)
Those fine folks at Comic Book Resources have the exclusive preview of Adventures of Superman #46 (out on Monday for only $0.99) drawn by mingdoyle (doing KamandI!), brentschoonover (doing 1939 Superman!) and written by that Joe Keatinge guy.
It’s the first of three parts. Part two features more Ming Doyle Kamandi with a 2013 Superman drawn by David Williams and Al Gordon. Part three features 1926 Clark Kent drawn by tulalotaycomics and jasonshawnalexander drawing Superman at the end of all time.
All under a cover by Jon Bogdanove, responsible for one of my favorite Superman comics of all time.
Out weekly, starting on Monday, March 10th!
“[T]he third section of the movie also contains an image that’s remarkably Kirby-like. When Dave enters the Discovery’s computer center to “kill” HAL, he’s shot from below, looking like one of Kirby’s iconic superhumans. As an artist, Kirby made sense for 2001, because he excelled at drawing futuristic technology and he thought in widescreen. Visually, the 2001 Marvel Treasury is a thing of beauty, with the oversized format (10 by 14 inches rather than than the more common 7.25 by 10.5) suiting Kirby’s preference for big panels and two-page splashes. Kirby borrows some compositions directly from the film, but he adds his own dynamic poses and granite faces. He gives a somewhat stately film a jolt of Kirby electricity.”
Yeah so that whole paragraph is like, “how do we write an article especially made for Joe Keatinge.”
Dustin Weaver’s variant for SHUTTER #1 has gone public thanks to those folks at Bleeding Cool and there’s still time to make sure you get a copy. Here’s a link to a hi-res PDF of the pre-order to print out and take to your local comic book shop so they can get it in by the deadline of MARCH 17th (in stores April 9th!). Emma Rios and Brandon Graham’s covers will be out on other websites short.
Here’s a link to talking more about SHUTTER and the pre-order process, but I’d rather use this post to sing dustinweaver's praises.
Dustin’s an artist whose work I’ve been digging for a long time. He’s a guy whose influences seem to be every thing I am super into — folks like Moebius, Katsuhiro Otomo and Hayao Miyazaki — yet takes all these and has formed something entirely his own. It’s amazing to see what he’s done on AVENGERS and INFINITY. but I highly, highly suggest his web comic, amniacycle. Here’s his Tumblr. Here’s his blog with in-depth career history, exclusive glimpses into what he’s working on. And here’s a link to Amnia Cycle. I suggest you dive deep into all this.
A major huge public thanks for Dustin contributing this awesome SHUTTER cover. He chose to focus on a flashback from issue #1, which is actually a really damn essential part of the larger SHUTTER lore we won’t even be getting into for a while now, so it’s way cool he did this.
So, yeah. Dustin Weaver. That guy rules. So does Emma and Brandon. Looking forward to showing off their fine work soon.
Alright folks. This is it. The final push! Final orders for THE FIELD #1 are due on Monday, March 10th. That’s in just a few short days.
If you haven’t asked your LCS to carry the book, please do.
I’ve said it before, but I’m saying it again: I’m immensely proud of this book and thing that readers are really going to dig it. You’ve got an underwear clad amnesiac; and ex-Bible salesman on a meth induced murder spree; a bunch of bad assed bikers and a cavorting crew of cosplayers on a quest to save civilization. What more could you ask for? We’ve got Simon (PROPHET, JAN’S ATOMIC HEART) Roy’s incredible art between (and on) the covers. We’ve got the amazing Simon Gough throwing down some sick, sick colors. Published by Image Comics.
So, please, walk on down to your LCS and make sure that they’ve got your back.
All retumbls and retweets and repostings of any sort are greatly appreciated.

The Beatles’ seventh album was released in early August 1966. Following the release of Rubber Soul the group had embarked on what was to be their final UK concert tour and following a lengthy break, they returned to Abbey Road to record continually for three months. The first recordings released from these sessions, engineered by Geoff Emerick, was the single “Paperback Writer” and “Rain” and those tracks gave an indication of what was to come.
