Action Time!

What happens when well-known comic book artist Fred Perry gets sat down by his friend Robby Bevard for a marathon viewing of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Adventure Time, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and more? This: Action Time Buddies.  “What time is it, bronies? It’s Action Time!  The fan-favorite internet sensation now has its own comic book! Bro the Kung-fu Pegasus, Artie the Bookworm Ninja, and Kid the Boy Pilot are out to find danger, monsters, bad guys, and the magic of friendship in their most exciting, wackiest adventure time on the playground of life yet!  The action scene is just kicking into gear, so don’t miss out on this exploding phenomenon! This first issue is sure to get snapped up!” It’s coming this February (in full color!) from Antarctic Press, and you can order it at Things from Another World.

Kittens and Existential Angst

“One morning, as Gregor Samsa was waking up from anxious dreams, he discovered that he had been changed into an adorable kitten.” If that sounds vaguely familiar, it should: It’s roughly the beginning of Franz Kafka’s best-known work, The Metamorphosis. Only this time around, it’s not giant bugs that take center stage, it’s giant kittens: The Meowmorphosis is a brand-new spoof novel coming soon from the pseudonym known as Coleridge Cook. Here’s the publisher’s notes from “Meet Gregor Samsa, a humble young man who works as a fabric salesman to support his parents and sister. His life goes strangely awry when he wakes up late for work and discovers that, inexplicably, he is now a man-sized baby kitten. His family freaks out: Yes, their son is OMG so cute, but what good is cute when there are bills to pay? And how can Gregor be so selfish as to devote all his attention to a scrap of ribbon? As his new feline identity threatens to eat away at his personality, Gregor desperately tries to survive this bizarre, bewhiskered ordeal by accomplishing the one thing he never could as a man: He must flee his parents’ house.” The Meowmorphosis comes to bookshelves this May, in paperback from Quirk Books.

Justin… Beaver?

Evidently, some bad puns are just too good (or bad) to pass up… That, or some comic book companies don’t check with each other very often! It seems that not one but two different comic book companies have come up with parody one-shots called Justin Beaver — making fun of teen pop heart-throb Justin Bieber, of course, as if you couldn’t guess.  Even stranger, they’re releasing them to comic book shops almost simultaneously! Antarctic Press’ Justin Beaver is illustrated (in black & white) and written by Ben Dunn (Ninja High School), while Archie Comics’ Justin Beaver is the full-color cover story of Archie & Friends #155. Comics Alliance has an article on their web site explaining the whole thing, sort of.

Dentiblu Returns

Ready or not, it’s time for more Dentiblu! The pig-happy parodist has returned with his latest self-published full-color comic, The Hamazing Spider-Mad. In this one-shot we watch as Pigger Porker (!) attempts to become a radioactive superhero with super-spider-powers.  Spider pig, spider pig… does whatever a spider pig does…
