10 Musicians Who Have Also Written Comic Books



Our next show takes place on Sunday August 16th, 2015 at The Toronto Animes Plaza Hotel located on 1677 Wilson Ave in Toronto, Ontario Canada. A science fiction epic that has now spawned multiple volumes, as well as a novel co-written by Sanchez and comic book writer Peter David, it tells the story of Coheed and Cambria Kilgannon and their messianic son Claudio. Orchid has received a fair amount of positive reaction from readers but based on what he’s said in interviews, it doesn’t seem as though Morello is itching to get back into comic writing any time soon. Max Bemis is the lead singer of the emo rock band Say Anything and has also been busy building up a substantial resume as a comic book writer, including a 2013 issue of the Marvel comic A+X (starring Spider-Man and Magneto).

The other comic books which have featured original Avengers material are; in the UK, the rare and unusual The Avengers, published by Thorpe and Porter in 1966 and, straddling the Atlantic, Steed and Mrs Peel, which was co-published by the UK-based ACME comics and American company Eclipse in the late nineteen-eighties. Books on this topic can be found in The Imaginative Conservative Bookstore Republished with the gracious permission of Beauty in Education (October, 2013). As one of the comic-book industry’s most successful writers, DeConnick, 44, has been credited with drawing female readers back to comic books. And nowhere is the renewed interest in comics more evident than in the sales of actual comic books themselves.

The pricing in the UK is; Volume 1 £2.99, Volume 2 £6.99, and Volume 3 onwards £9.99. If you would like to subscribe you can do so via our subscribe page.

On August 11th, 2012 — three months after Chiofalo vanished — a man named Lonnie Blevins walked into Wizard World’s Chicago Comic Convention looking to unload a box of comics. But for comics, the real action was in the booths, where buyers came from across the country to check out any interesting books that might be for sale. It was a rare book and an expensive one, too: after all, just a few months earlier, an All Star #3 had sold for $200,000 in a private Heritage sale. The books were deslabbed to throw investigators off the trail, but even without the barcode, the cover gave it away.

So as big comics-based movies feel increasingly indebted to their source material and/or parent companies, Marvel and other studios shouldn’t forget how idiosyncratic those sources can be. The formal stylizations of many comic books aren’t just noticeable but often personal, based on the whims of their writers and artists; …

Girlfriend Club Korean Drama Review



Within the modern TV drama world, the urban fantasy genre has crafted a Korean Drama decent niche for itself. The drama tries to force this through by reducing the age of the male lead character by about 5 years and aging Shin Eun-Kyung’s character by 9 years in comparison to the actors playing them. I would have to say that Oh My Ghost” (2015) is an interesting attempt at doing an urban fantasy Korean drama. Oh My Ghost” (2015), while feeling like a 49 Days” (2011) clone sometimes, is still different enough to prevent this from feeling like a sin. Like texting all of my non-K-drama-watching friends and family and telling them to watch Healer excited. I guess I watch Kdramas to escape from my stressful life and Healer was the first one in a while that really spoke to me.

And what a bizarre, ridiculous and delightful satirical take Surplus Princess is, parodying Korean romantic comedies and workplace dramas. The big-budget series from production house Group 8, casts actress Lee Young-ae, who returns to the small screen after more than a decade after her memorable lead role in the 2003 period drama Jewel in the Palace. If you really want to get into the deep end, check out or the ‘Korean Series’ list index on tvtropes.

Many fans from the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Indonesia and China became tourist and flocked to see the drama studios and the filming locations of big productions like Jewel In The Palace. Korean drama has become very popular all over the world because of its fresh take on soaps. Korean writers have been flexing their cretive muscles and people from all over the world are taking notice. The result is a production that has a very discernible Korean flavor to it, which surprisingly appeals to viewers worldwide. One thing’s for sure though, Korean producers are sticking to the age-old recipe of good writing coupled with crafty production and smart casting.

Korean drama downloads are available as VOD (video on demand) from the korean tv stations KBS, MBC and SBS.Korean TV dramas have recently become popular in the United States, particularly among Asian Americans and older viewers, as many of them see these dramas as an alternative to the violent and racy content of American soap operas. The overwhelming success of South Korean dramas, movies, and music served as a major tourism attraction in South Korea.

KMHM’s ratings are doing pretty good but I’m hoping for a much higher ratings & rankings relative to how amazing the drama has been showing us viewers. Btw, you should watch them in Secret but make sure you have boxes upon boxes of tissues with you! This drama is really good, I can’t find anything to criticize except CY and the silent killer cousin. I’m just wondering why is it HJ&M be the 1st to have english sub, while waiting for KMHM english sub, I’ll peek 1st to see Hjun Bin, but compared to the story of …
