Greetings readers! We'd like to welcome you to a new segment we're starting on Comics The Gathering where we interview comic book kickstarters to give you additional information about the comic. Today we're interviewing James Wilkinson, creator of Sovereigns Dread who can be found by clicking this link.  Jesse Quick-Rincon: You mention that you’ve been working on Sovereign’s Dread for 3 years now, what has that process looked like? James Wilkinson: Haha, yeah that has been a very gradual process. I always used to pace in my backyard as a kid coming

                                      So if you are aware of the new Ghostbusters movie and have a working internet connection then statistically speaking you both hate it and have written angry comments on Youtube or your forum of choice. As of right now the video has over 850 thousand dislikes and produced more vitriol than any likely middling comedy really deserves.  The director, Paul Feig hasn’t really helped to abate this anger by saying, “Geek culture is home to some of

Moon Knight has been trying to climb the rungs to the A-List since Brian Michael Bendis did his run on the character back in 2011 - the series only lasted 12 issues and there were mixed opinions about the quality. Personally, I found it to be a lot of fun and well-suited to my tastes. The series ends with Marc Spector adding an Iron Man personality to his jumbled mess of an identity. It appeared Marvel did not know what to do with Moon Knight for a few years and just let him stay in a coma. All of this was very unfocused but it seems now that Marvel has finally put together a

  17. Island #1 This ambitious new anthology series had a great 2015, and I look forward to where it goes in the future. Issue #1 was my most anticipated comic of the year, and even though the stories inside were often too esoteric for me to grasp, the 8 dollars for 120 pages price point kept me coming back for more. Island is a beautiful package, and a shining beacon of creativity in a crowded market. I might not like every story they print, but I know the creators involved are proud of their comics. Like Island itself, everything inside is a passion project, and that’s

  I’m confident that Calvin and Hobbes was the definite piece of literature of my youth. Calvin, a rebellious 6-year old misanthrope, was the first fictional character I truly connected with on an emotional level, the first that I could call mine. Sure I was older than him (I was eight years old when I first started reading it), I had human friends, and I like to think that I was better behaved than he was, but I saw myself in him. I identified with his anger, his rejection of the adult world that had begun to seem more and more monotonous and austere. And this future that I so

Who doesn’t love comics set in the Multiverse? These stories give writers the prestige of working with familiar characters, while simultaneously giving them the freedom to do with them what they please, creating genuinely original versions of our favourite heroes and villains. Kingdom Come, Superman: Red Son, Ultimate Spider-Man, some of the best superhero comics ever written have been set in an alternate universe. Of course, not all Elseworlds and What If? stories are remembered as classics, in fact, many of them go relatively unnoticed. This article is devoted to the forgotten and

Writer:  Jeph Loeb Artist: Tim Sale Publisher: Marvel My only exposure to Daredevil so far has been the wonderfully dreadful movie put out. My knowledge of the character is extremely limited, and therefore was surprised when tasked to read and comment on Daredevil Yellow. Long-time fans will understand when I say this book is not the best introduction to the series. While it gives a good overview of the character, much of the emotional impact requires prior DD knowledge. Daredevil Yellow is a look back of Daredevil’s adventures so far. In it Matt Murdock pens a

Daredevil is a character that has always brought out the best in creators. He lends himself so well to the writing pen that bad Daredevil runs have been scarce in the last decade. And Brian Michael Bendis is a writer that is very hit-or-miss. This Daredevil effect, however brought out the best in Bendis as he delivered his masterpiece with this quintessential Daredevil run. Frank Miller redefined the character but Brian Michael Bendis perfected him. He brought him to a higher level of depth that made the character more believable as a human being than ever. This series, above all is a

Happy (belated) Easter Sunday CTG faithful! For some of us here, this Sunday marks a pretty pivotal point in our lives: the mark of the final stretch in the countdown to Marvel’s first collaborative series with Netflix, Daredevil. Regardless of religious affiliation, I think we can all appreciate that much.      Matt Murdock, Hell’s Kitchen’s own resident street brawler/ninja/swash buckler/acrobat is himself a fairly devout catholic; in fact, his mother is even revealed to be a nun in a local ministry (see Daredevil: Guardian Devil). But that’s about

When we decided at CTG to have a Daredevil celebration leading up to the new, original Netflix series I knew immediately what arc I wanted to cover, Born Again! I only first read this tale about 5 years ago but upon closing the back cover it not only became my favorite Frank Miller story but also one of my favorite stories period. I’m a huge fan of writer Frank Miller’s work but for whatever reason I was extremely late to the party on this one. I’ve made up for it since with reading it at least once a year. The really weird part of my love for this 8 issue series is I’
