ETERNALS TEAM UP WITH THE MARVEL UNIVERSE ON SHOWSTOPPING COVERS11/25/20 @ 3:17 pm EST
BOOM! Studios today announced a new original graphic novel GIRLSPLAINING: A (Sorta
) MEMOIR, by cartoonist Katja Klengel, tackling the subjects that have shaped her life: from body shaming to the exploration of her sexuality, and from the representation of women in the media to the social pressure on women who don’t have children, available in March 2021.
Why do we fear the word “vulva” so much? Do we really have to be ashamed of our body hair? Why do gender roles in children’s toys seem to be stuck in the ‘50s? With a sense of humor, an open heart, and unsparing candor, Klengel looks back on her childhood through the lens of the popular culture that shaped her identity and examines what being a woman today means to her (and really, a whole lot of us!).
Katja Klengel is an award-winning German comic artist and screenwriter living and working in Berlin. Her first graphic memoir Blattonisch was published in 2012 at Schwarzer Turm. That same year she worked on a serialized graphic novel for German newspaper F.A.Z., called Als ich so alt war
(When I Was Your Age
). In 2018, Klengel drew the feminist comic column Girlsplaining for online magazine Broadly.
“When I was a teenager I couldn't imagine that there were other girls and women who had the same problems and experienced the same things I did. So, for me, GIRLSPLAINING is the book I would have liked to have when I was younger to help me realize I'm not alone in this,” said Klengel. “I'm happy and excited that I can reach out to many more teenagers and grown-ups in the U.S. and elsewhere, and maybe it's a bit comforting to them.”
GIRLSPLAINING: A (Sorta) MEMOIR is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ award-winning Archaia imprint, home to inspiring graphic novels such as Slaughterhouse-Five
by Kurt Vonnegut, Ryan North, and Albert Monteys; The Sacrifice of Darkness
by Roxane Gay, Tracy Lynne Oliver, and Rebecca Kirby; Big Black: Stand at Attica
by Frank “Big Black” Smith, Jared Reinmuth, and Ameziane, We Served the People
by Emei Burell, The Realist by Asaf Hanuka, Girl on Film
by Cecil Castellucci and Vicky Leta, Melissa Duffy, V. Gagnon & Jon Berg, New World
by David Jesus Vignolli, About Betty’s Boob
by Vero Cazot and Julie Rocheleau, and Waves
by Ingrid Chabbert and Carole Maurel.
“The first time I saw Katja’s openly honest depictions of different experiences she’d had to deal with, just as a woman living her everyday life, I immediately recognized myself in her stories,” said Sierra Hahn, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Katja illustrates, with great humor and warmth, some of the everyday joys, issues, and challenges that a lot of women could relate to.”
Print copies of GIRLSPLAINING: A (Sorta) MEMOIR, for Mature Readers, will be available for sale in March 2021 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com
to find the nearest one), bookstores or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Madefire.

ISABELLA GOMEZ TO HEADLINE 'HEAD OF THE CLASS' REBOOT PILOT11/25/20 @ 12:25 pm EST
DC has revealed a full look at the front and back cover of the latest issue of DC Nation
, their in-house solicitations magazine. It revealed the shape of the DC Universe in the upcoming Future State
event, and gave fans better looks at some characters they already knew were coming, and fresh looks at some heroes that will take part in the ambitious, generations-spanning event. With at least two Supermen, two Batmen, two Wonder Women, and some characters that fans have never seen before, it was always going to turn some heads -- but seeing Wildstorm once again integrated into the DC Universe proper, as well as members of the Legion of Super-Heroes showing up in what we assume will be the current day... It's a lot!
There's something of an interesting dynamic in that it seems to imply that the "destiny of the DC Universe" may be a bit brighter than its present, with a smiling Jonathan Kent leading the heroes of the next generation on the front, while Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne appear glowering and wearing costumes that seem to imply they've been through some heavy stuff. (via ComicBook
launches in January.

DeadlineWATCH: FIRST LOOK AT ‘CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG’ MOVIE11/25/20 @ 9:40 am EST
reports that One Day at a Time
star Isabella Gomez is set as the lead of HBO Max’s multi-camera comedy pilot Head of The Class
, a reboot of the popular 1980s ABC sitcom. Gomez’s casting reveals a gender swap in the followup as the lead in the original series was played by Howard Hesseman.
HBO Max in May ordered a pilot and five additional scripts for Head Of the Class

Written by Pocha and Cohen, based on the original series created by Rich Eustis and Michael Elias, the reimagined Head of the Class

Gomez’s Alicia Adams is a whip-smart, funny, blunt, high school teacher we all wish we had. A former GPA junkie, Alicia thought she had the world all figured out when she was in school. Teaching for the first time, Alicia’s is figuring out what she really wants in life.

The poster, which you can check out below, shows a grotesque-looking hand rising up from Sweetwater River. (via ComicBook

VAULT ANNOUNCES ANAND RADHAKRISHNAN INCENTIVE COVERS FOR 'THE PICTURE OF EVERYTHING ELSE' #111/24/20 @ 11:17 pm EST
Marvel Studios is rapidly moving forward on the development of their upcoming slate of television shows for Disney+. One such series is She-Hulk
, which centers around the quick-witted super-strong cousin of Bruce Banner. Aside from conflicting leading role reports and rumors of a young Bruce Banner appearance, the series has yet to see any major breakthroughs for news.
However, with production on She-Hulk
set to begin in March 2021, more information about the supporting characters who will join Jennifer Walters is finally coming to light. And one report has revealed that five new She-Hulk
roles are currently being cast for the series. These roles include Jennifer Walters' parents, who will be in their 60's and play supporting roles, as well as a role for a male co-worker in his late 20's to 30's, who is described as "sweet," "earnest," and "handsome in a John Krasinski sort of way..." The role is also said to be "leaning diverse but open to all ethnicities."
Two more important characters listed include Jennifer Walters' best friend in the show, who is reportedly codenamed as "Susie," with the production looking for a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) actress in her 30's, and specifically looking for someone with strong comedic abilities.
The final character is a female villain in her 30's under the codename "Lucy." This antagonist is reportedly described as "...a glamorous social media influencer, Kardashian-esque with a dark side," and will play a fairly large role in the series, appearing in five to ten episodes.
It sounds like She-Hulk
is gearing up for a series as fun and exciting as its green and charismatic main character. (via The Direct

As the 20th century dawns, art promises to change the world…and steep it in blood. A rash of impossible killings sweep through Paris, tearing the rich and beautiful apart in their beds.

From the minds of Dan Watters (Coffin Bound, Lucifer, Home Sick Pilots) and Kishore Mohan comes a haunting balance of depravity and beauty.
