RUMBLE by James Harren & John Arcudi. December 2014
James Harren has done the best BPRD comics since Guy Davis left. His BPRD Hell on Earth: The Long Death has the greatest fight sequences seen in a US comic.
Arcudi’s written work on BPRD is consistently great. He knows what elements of a story should be told visually or through dialogue.
I expect RUMBLE to be the best new comic of 2015!
Jason Latour: “A better look at the promo image for John Arcudi and James Harren’s RUMBLE. Coloring James was a lot of fun. I won’t be coloring the book, I just pitched in for fun. Hope I did him justice.”
A world designed ground-up by John Arcudi and James Harren? … yup. I’ll take that. I’ll take as much of that as I can get.
Marcin Bialas is a Polish artist who’s specialized in etchings and drawings in black an white. Among his large production, a recurring theme is dissected buildings and surreal constructions, such as infinite staircases and labyrinthine interiors, an atemporal combination of G.B. Piranesi and Brodsky/Utkin prints. The structures seem unfinished, yet already in ruin, able to plunge the viewer into an uncomfortable feeling. Somewhere between nightmares and theatrical settings, Marcin Bialas’ retro drawings explore the dramatic potential of different projections and points of view.

Risograph printed comics by John Pham (US), Uno Moralez (US), Ryan Cecil Smith (Japan/US) & Hanna K (Sweden)
I just finished a risograph test print!! Check ‘it out!
SFLPB ‘14 - The SF Lapel Pin Badge is a brass and cloisonné deluxe emblem for the S.F. series. Included is a 44-page, 4-color risograph comic book (previewed above) inside a screen-printed and sealed plastic package. The class of 2013’s pin was navy. Join the class of 2014 in burgundy!
(If you have already ordered one, you rule. But you know that.)
Preorder it at the Screentone TV shop (LINK) this weekend. On Monday I’m putting in the order at the great big pin badge factory, and then it’ll be a couple months to make the pins, print and assemble the books, package etc. They’ll be released in September.
GORGEOUS! I can’t wait to see this in person. I LOVE how Ryan Cecil Smith keeps pushing the limitations of risograph printing. Keep it up, man!
Wow. Rare & primitive Hellboy illustration.
I’m a long time Hellboy fan and this is the first time I’ve seen this.
Hellboy’s color scheme hadn’t been figured out yet.
