Game&Comic had the opportunity to speak with comic artist, Ming Doyle, at Boston Comic Con 2014. Well known for her work on Image’s Mara, fans were wanting to know what is next for the upcoming artist. If you have not had the chance to read Mara, we highly suggest picking it up. Doyle has a really hip, clean, and colorful art style that is a real pleasure to read. Doyle actually has a new series on the way, and it’s taking us straight to The Kitchen:

So close to the end folks, and the plot continues to get darker and denser. I genuinely have no idea where this comic is going from month to month, and I love it. “Midas Flesh” is a unique storytelling experience that keeps on getting better. The events of this issue will be kicking around in my head for days to come.

Every superhero has a supervillain; heck, some would even say that every superhero needs a supervillain. Superman has Lex Luthor, the Fantastic Four have Doctor Doom, and Batman has the Joker. These characters act as foils for one another; their strengths, weakness, and personality are complimentary. The question has been asked before: are supervillains essential to their superheros? Do they need each other to provide them with purpose, to fulfill their existence? This twisted relationship is at the heart of BOOM!’s newest six-part miniseries, “Translucid.”

Have you ever heard of the Bechdel movie test? It was popularized by Alison Bechdel (famous American cartoonist and graphic novelist) in her comic strip “Dykes to Watch Out For.” In order to pass the Bechdel test, a movie must have: 1) At least two named female characters; 2) Those characters have to talk to each other; 3) Their conversation has to be about something other than a man. You’d be surprised how few movies pass that test, but this applies to more than just movies. I read a lot of comics, and unfortunately most of them also fail the Bechdel test.
