Cover to Rocket Girl #7: Rocket Girl in plainclothes?! Had a ton of fun with this.

I do nothing on these covers—it’s all Amy Reeder… except I did suggest she change DaYoung Johansson’s t-shirt to Les Miz from AC/DC

Spider-Woman #32 cover by Frank Miller. Yowzers… this one is awesome. Some controversy going around today with Milo Manara’s new Spider-Woman #1 variant cover. It’s safe to say that Miller doesn’t worry himself with controversies—but he definitely gets the upper-hand!

Pretty amazing Gene Colan cover to Tomb of Dracula #44. Rainbows used in badass action seems to work… see Thor’s bifrost, a few Superman 10cent covers, and Superfriends.

Interview: Blasting Through Crime (and Time!) with Brandon Montclare and Amy Reeder’s ‘Rocket Girl’

Interview: Blasting Crime with @BMontclare and @AmyReeder’s ‘Rocket Girl’

image

The vivid, striking, lush artwork of Amy Reeder first came to my attention in Madame Xanadu, a vastly underappreciated Vertigo series she drew with writer Matt Wagner.For all that the book made sweeping, bold approaches to setting and place, the heart of every issue was how closely Reeder holds onto the central character. She never for a moment leaves the character isolated in the magical worlds…

Fun interview that moves from the creative process to some nuts & bolts comics financing.

Rocket Girl’s been getting some GREAT press in the last week and I’ve been too busy to post anything!  Gotta write down all the cool stuff:
NPR gave a rave review! Holy cow I love NPR!!
Indiewire placed Rocket Girl in its "10 Comics Books That Deserve to be Movies" list!  AMAZING.
Rocket Girl showed up on the New York news once again for (what it seems) a good example of female representation. Here’s the other video if you haven’t seen it.  Very cool!
Multiversity outdid their support for us in their recent writeup about their favorite colorists by putting me at the tippy-top of the article!  It matters a lot to me that I get to color myself, so it’s GREAT to hear that people think it makes a difference.  You are validating my happy place!
Speaking of Multiversity, we did a GREAT interview for their "Robots From Tomorrow" podcast with Mike Romeo.  In it I wax philosophical that what motivates me is the rush I get when I try something difficult and succeed.  I have to do it or I won’t want to draw.
During SDCC I interviewed with Juliet Kahn over at ComicsAlliance!  Thanks, Juliet!
Steve Morris of The Beat fame has just opened up his new site The Spire and Brandon and I have an interview with him!
On top of all that, TONIGHT Brandon and I are going to Jersey City to sign at WORD Bookstore at 7:30.  We’ll be speaking as well; don’t miss it!

Rocket Girl is everywhere…
