Had a chance to finally read and catch up with Cameron Stewart & Brendan Fletchre’s new Batgirl title for DC Comics. Besides the fact that Stewart & Babs Tarr’s art is a joy to look at, it’s a great title that harkens back to any number of great comics that do what they do best: show what it means to be a young person of exceptional and at times, ostracizing and frustrating circumstances. If you haven’t checked it out yet, then you should take a second and give it a chance. Get Volume 1 here.

I mean, I know everyone wants me to do more DC comic songs. So here you go.

I’ve got a pretty unique opportunity to not only offer you some new music, but also some comics! The new titles of Kaijumax by Zander Cannon (Top 10) and Hellbreak by Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun, Magneto) and Brian Churilla are coming out from Oni Press, and you can read previews of them for free!

Hellbreak
Written by Cullen Bunn, illustrated by Brian Churilla, colored by Dave Stewart 
There are thousands of Hells, each unique, each terrible. Mega-cities ruled by vicious gangs. Empires where the most perverse are well-respected. Wastelands roamed by prehistoric monstrosities. With the proper tools and know-how… you can infiltrate Hell whether you’re dead or not. With the proper tools and know-how, you can break out. Project Kerberos has developed this forbidden technology, and a special forces extraction team is dispatched to rescue lost souls from the infernal realm. 

Kaijumax
by Zander Cannon 
Welcome to Kaijumax, where the worst of the worst monsters are safely locked away from the human world, whether they be villains, anti-heroes, eco-parables, or nuclear metaphors. Electrogor is ripped away from his family and struggles to determine whom to trust, which gangs to avoid, and when to take on the big man to show you aren’t to be trifled with.

“Squirrel Girl” [free tunes]

Who doesn’t want a song about Squirrel Girl, right? Big ups to friend-of-the-site Erica Henderson on the Marvel gig. If you don’t remember, she did the last Rap-A-Thon poster for me (image), and she’s just a generally cool lady. Also big ups to Ryan North, who I don’t know personally, but whose work I love. If you haven’t checked out Marvel Comics’ Squirrel Girl, you should. It’s great. I wish Marvel would do more of this kind of stuff, it reminds me of the Marvel Adventures comics that used to be around. There was some great stuff in that series.

I’m generally done touring for a while. But I got some interesting shows on the horizon:

This Saturday: Collector’s Corner – Baltimore, MD (info)
March 27 – Rutgers Geek Week – New Brunswick, NJ (info)
April 4: UCLA Geek Week – Los Angeles, CA (info TBA)
April 10: Univ. of North Texas GeeKon Event – Denton, TX (info TBA)
April 23: The Symposium – Cleveland, OH (info)
April 24: ICE Comic Expo – Chicago, IL
May 2: Super-Fly Comics FCBD! – Yellow Springs, OH

Come out and say hi!

“The Captain” [Captain Marvel - free tunes]

THE CAPTAIN COVERAdam WarRock “The Captain” (MP3 Download)
Beat used: Rhymefest “Bullet”

I have been focusing on catching up with comics lately. Somewhere in the iced over winter, some other projects I’ve been working on, Dragon Age, and just general exhaustion has led me away from reading comics regularly, which is a shame, but probably necessary once in a while. But I’m catching up. And here we are, getting you some comics goodness two weeks in a row!

I’d actually never read an issue of Captain Marvel until recently. Nothing against the book, just one of those things. Finally had a chance to read three of the trades, and I loved it, obviously. Weirdly, I think reading in trade was more enjoyable than how I imagined reading it in issues, because they’re like these great vignettes about a hero that I’d always sort of had a history with (Carol was around a lot in the 80s X-Men books I read, usually getting possessed by the Shadow King or something), but I’ve been loving the look, the feel of the new book, and what it holds for the future of Carol as a character, both in comics and (presumably) in the movies.

You should check it out. Here, get the first trade here.

“Luci” (Wicked + Divine)

LUCI COVERAdam WarRock “Luci” (download MP3)
Beat used: Kno “Still With Me”

Untitled-159

Look! It’s a song about comics. I’m back in the swing of things. I finally had a chance to catch up with Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s Wicked + Divine series from Image Comics. It’s amazing, it’s got snazzily dressed youngsters who fight as gods, and heads exploding  and a character named Luci, short for Lucifer. I could go into more detail, but either you already read it, or you should just go read it.

I made a song about Luci, which is a direct reference to this album, where he made songs about Lucy, aka Lucifer, so it seemed appropriate. It’s also one of my favorite albums of all time, and a huge influence on how I make music. So you should check that out.

Oh also, you should buy the first trade of Wicked + Divine here:
The Wicked + The Divine, Vol. 1: The Faust Act
