Revisiting Saucer Country

Saucer Country 12 Ryan Kelly
Ryan Kelly

In recent years, DC’s Vertigo imprint has lost a bit of the sheen from its acclaimed run in the 1990s. Originally launched in 1993, the brand built on existing titles, such as Sandman and Hellblazer, to cultivate a line of titles which could, more or less, stand independent of DC’s superheroes in both form and content. This strategy was an immediate success. In the following years, Vertigo published the likes of The Invisibles, Preacher and Lucifer; their name quickly became synonymous with the cutting edge. However, as it often does, time can dull what was once trendsetting. Vertigo still produces some excellent comics, such as The Unwritten or The Sheriff of Babylon. Another example would be Saucer Country from the team of Paul Cornell and Ryan Kelly. Saucer Country was a deep dive into the heady realm of UFO mythology. Writer Cornell deftly avoided many of the common traps of the genre, keeping the reader on their toes while maintaining their engagement through compelling characters and themes. The series returns to shelves this Wednesday, after a four year hiatus; first though, an examination of what made the first volume of the title so memorable.

Indubitable Issues and Pull List (7/29/15)

LOOKING FOR BOOKS TO BUY THIS WEEK?  

LOOK NO FURTHER.  

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

 
Tyler’s Recommendations: 
Donald Duck #3
‘The Siege of Nothing Atoll’-when an island-dwelling mad scientist sics his super-weapons on Scrooge’s Money Bin, it’s up to Donald to take the bad guy down!
“IDW has done a fine job bringing back the spirit of my favorite Disney character. This issue starts a new adventure where Donald finds himself as the only line of defense against a mad scientist set on stealing Uncle Scrooge’s money bin. At 40 pages, these issues are a great value, containing a mixture of short and long-form stories of Duckberg’s most famous son.”

The Red Bee Asks Chris Ryall about Onyx

At Nothing But Comics, we are excited to read the upcoming IDW Publishing comics series Onyx, co-created by writer Chris Ryall and artist Gabriel Rodriguez.  Ryall and Rodriguez impressed us with their work on Clive Barker’s The Great and Secret Show, and Rodriquez provided the stunning artwork for one of our favorite comics series, Locke and Key.  

We wanted to learn more about Onyx, so we recruited superhero the Red Bee to ask Ryall about the comic.

The Red Bee Tweets with James Robinson about Airboy

At Nothing But Comics, we enjoyed reading the first issue of Airboy from Image Comics, by writer James Robinson and artist Greg Hinkle.  Airboy is an kid aviation hero character created during World War II, but the character endures.  The public domain character was revived in the 1980s by Eclipse Comics, and his adventures have been published by IDWMoonstone Books, and Antarctic Press. Notable writers have created homages to the character, like George R. R. Martin’s Jetboy and Alan Moore’s Jetland. So we tasked superhero the Red Bee with asking Robinson an important question about Airboy’s endurance as a character.
