We’re only halfway through December, but Oni Press is already promoting their Summer offerings. Shots fired in the War on Christmas? U DECIDE. The publisher sent out a press release highlighting their Summer 2018 releases and asking the question, “Why double up when you can triple up on your summer reading?” In the press release, […]
Letter 44, the Oni Press series much enjoyed by Bleeding Cool by Charles Soule and Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque is published by Glénat in France. And it was added to the Official List for Angoulême next year, considered the best of the comics published by French publishers of the year. And, in a timely fashion, Soule […]
Angoulême have announced their Official Selection for 2015, what they consider the best comic books published in the French language for the last year. It is probably the most prestigious comic book award in the world. And this yearit seems to have a record number that were originally published in the English language, including Saga, Letter 44, Can’t […]
Charles Soule spent much of 2014 with a reputation for writing lots and lots of comics that got published, hitting a record eleven titles in August. But a number of those comic runs are coming to an end. Superman/Wonder Woman, Thunderbolts. She-Hulk. Red Lanterns. Swamp Thing. So is he taking a well earned rest to spend […]

Okay, first I talk some about the con, then it’s Kirkman’s Outcast #2. Also Skybound and Joshua Williamson has a new book called Birthright out in […]
By David Dissanayake Antony Johnston and Christopher Mitten’s fantastic series Umbral from Image Comics begins its second arc in today’s issue #7. I’ve been a big supporter of this creative duo since Wasteland, one of the first ongoing series I started following on a regular basis. Worldbuilders of the highest order, the Johnston/Mitten duo bring […]
By Erik Grove This week’s column is a special treat for me. I met Charles Soule briefly at the Emerald City Comic-con a few months ago. He was gracious with his time and agreed to answer some questions for this column. Soule is an inspiring creator. His comics are consistently good, his work ethic is […]
Rich Johnston: We start with the biggie, Letter 44 announcedas a TV series… This is going to be on actual TV right? I don’t have to buy a game console or a tablet or some kind of exotic fruit to watch it, right? Charles Soule: Well, while one certainly doesn’t have to watch it with […]
It's a pretty broad slate and while it's almost inevitable that some of these shows won't click, it's looking like a pretty healthy set of odds for SyFy here.
Now Syfy is getting in on the comic book adaptation game too.
Welcome to another week of comic book thinking. The London underground tube strike was called off, and I was able to get into town without any trouble. Aside from the rain, the thunder, the commuters late for their proper jobs and, you know, life. And now I sit at my regular spot on the fifth […]

By Rich Johnston and Hannah Means-Shannon In case you haven’t noticed, this is the first year in which Bleeding Cool has done “best of” lists, and there are many reasons for that. In the past, we’ve rightly acknowledged that to single out only a few comics for praise is to exclude others and with comics […]
This is the cover of Letter 44 #3, one of Bleeding Cool’s favourite new comic books of the year. Seriously, it will be on lists. And yes, we added Charles Soule‘s face in what might potentially be a tricky spot, depending on your definition of NSFW. Some retailers, operating in rather sensitive areas of the […]
Well, it appears that Bleeding Cool liked Letter 44 #1 so much that we’ve been given a sneak preview of Letter 44 #2, by Charles Soule and Alberto Jimenez Albuquerque, from Oni Press and out next Wednesday, to run on the site. So here we go then. Will it live up to the hype of […]
Three books. All relatively obscure. All now attached to television series. How does that affect the sale and value of back issue? Let’s take a look! For standard raw covers of Max Brooks’ Extinction Parade, they’ve been briskly selling at cover price, but no real sign of a price spike yet, though a 9.8 signed […]
You know I like Letter 44, the new Oni Press book by Charles Soule and Alberto Alburquerque. I talked about it here quite a lot.
