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; the same should be true of their film equivalents, especially when adding elements, like music, that the source materials can’t realistically provide.
