JEFF SMITH KICKS OFF SEASON TWO OF HIS WEBCOMIC ‘TÜKI SAVE THE HUMANS’
It’s been just over a year since Bone creator Jeff Smith kicked off the first season of his prehistoric webcomic Tüki Save the Humans, which gives a fictional account of the first human to leave Africa after the start of a great ice age. It’s a big shift from what he was doing on Bone, and it’s set to change even more in the coming season, which kicked off on Monday.

If you were going to pick two titans of webcomics to team up and create something amazing, you could do a heck of a lot worse than to try pairing Gunshow‘s KC Green with Nedroid‘s Anthony Clark. Scientists have long theorized that if those two ever teamed up, they’d probably end up making something truly incredible.
Well, scientists, theorize no more. Today, Green announced that he and Clark are in fact teaming up to launch a webcomic called Back that begins on June 18, with Green writing, Clark drawing, and character designs by both creators.

Here at ComicsAlliance, we’ve grumbled more than a couple of times about the persistent, legally mandated “Batman Created By Bob Kane” credit that appears on every single Batman story. The truth of the matter is that Batman was at best a collaborative effort between Kane and writer Bill Finger, who sadly remains unknown to many fans to this day. But what if — and this is a really big “what if” — that credit was actually accurate?
As Bill Finger’s 100th birthday approaches, that’s the question cartoonist Ty Templeton, artist of Bill the Boy Wonder, has set out to answer in a strip that shows Batman in the form that was actually created by Kane, and it’s not exactly a familiar site.
In the overwhelmingly male comic book industry, it has been a challenge for some editors and readers to see the ever growing number of talented women currently trying to make a name for themselves. With that in mind, ComicsAlliance offers Hire This Woman, a recurring feature designed for comics readers as well as editors and other professionals, where we shine the spotlight on a female comics pro on the ascendance. Some of these women will be at the very beginning of their careers, while others will be more experienced but not yet “household names.”
This week we’re featuring cartoonist Cathy G. Johnson. Johnson writes, draws, colors, and letters her own work. Readers may be familiar with her webcomic-turned-graphic novel, Jeremiah.
