Seth Peagler from Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find in Charlotte, NC had some nice things to say about Sovereign #2 (out today). Thanks, Seth!

SETH’S PICK :: SOVEREIGN #2: Many readers have only recently realized that Image Comics is putting out some of the highest quality comics on the stands. But for every runaway hit that sells out immediately (think Black Science), there are others with a slower burning fuse of public awareness. Sovereign may fall into that latter category, but I’m here to let you know that it’s a new series well worth your time and money. In the first issue, creators Chris Roberson and Paul Maybury establish a range of themes and possibilities. There are obvious fantasy elements present, namely in the book’s inclusion of a healthy amount of magic and the undead, but those are all balanced with strong characters amid societies rife with civil unrest. I’ve seen the book regaled as a story existing in the vein of Game of Thrones, and there may well be some truth to that. This is, however, a story that was born for the comics medium, and Maybury’s always impressive cartooning eloquently reminds us of that. Sovereign is a comic with endless potential, and may just be yet another long running and entertaining series for Image.

Ming Doyle changed some of her social media profile images and used part of one of her paintings from last year’s Lazer Lips/Glass Helmets show as one of them. It reminded me what fun it was to design the promotional stuff for that show. I wish I had more time to mess around with that kind of stuff.

OOSA artist Alexis Ziritt is really coming into his own this year doing a shirt for Patagonia, pieces for Ed Piskor’s Hip Hop Family Tree and Locust Moon’s Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream books, projects with Ben Marra and Fabian Rangel Jr., and covers for a few Boom! Studios projects.

Be sure you go see him at C2E2 this weekend at the Nerd City booth or at Heroes Con in June.

"Cypress has always been an exceptional talent whose idiosyncratic cartooning has allowed him to live on the fringe of mainstream comics but here his art is on another level. His illustrations have always been wholly distinctive and on White Suits it feels like he’s fully mastered his craft and technique to this story and world. He manages to have a familiar art style for all of his people and settings that’s refined enough to the point that they all feel different and fully realized while his layouts are just gorgeous displays of visual storytelling that work both in panel to panel showing multiple layers of the story with an economical use of line work or the large scale splash pages that spill outward to set a mood, tone and experience unmatched."

I added some of Alexis Ziritt’s art to the OOSA store, including his page for Locust Moon’s Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream book.
