Young Reader Spotlight: THE LOUD HOUSE
THE LOUD HOUSE #1: "THERE WILL BE CHAOS"
ON SALE MAY 9th!
EDITOR’S NOTE: We continue our infrequent spotlight on new comics that may be of interest to younger readers. More from our friends at Papercutz . . . . .
This Spring, Papercutz will be releasing THE LOUD HOUSE #1, based on Nickelodeon’s insanely popular, number-one-rated cartoon. That’s right, Nickelodeon’s newest hit show is our newest hit comic!
If you’re not familiar with the series, The Loud House follows 11-year-old Lincoln as he learns to live (and survive) in the chaos of a large family, especially as the only boy with 10 sisters. With his best bud Clyde, Lincoln always comes up with a plan to stay one step ahead of the chaos, but whether or not it works is where the adventures begin.
THE LOUD HOUSE #1: "There Will Be Chaos" features stories and artwork from show creator Chris Savino and his insanely talented team. In “Video Game Mojo,” Lincoln experiences a crushing gaming defeat at the hands of a mysterious challenger. In “Loud and Order,” Lana and Lola, pretending to be police officers, arrest Lincoln for speeding in the kitchen, and then put him on trial. And in the wildly inventive “Lost Control,” a choose-your-own-adventure style tale, Lincoln must go through the gauntlet of sisters in order to find the television remote.
Filled with the same zaniness and hilarity as the show, THE LOUD HOUSE graphic novel series is sure to appeal to both fans and newbies alike. Now let’s make some noise for THE LOUD HOUSE #1!
I wasn't actually a huge fan of Robert Kirkman when I first started reading his books. He was competent, sure, but I didn't see the appeal-- The Irredeemable Ant-Man was a boring side story in the middle of Civil War and The Initiative (although I've since changed my mind about this), and his Ultimate X-Men run was, in many places, a mixed bag (although I did very much enjoy his "Phoenix?" storyline). And Marvel Zombies just seemed like a ridiculous idea--not that I bothered to try it at the time. Now, though? I've completely reevaluated my opinion on his work, and when his name is attached to a project, I'm far more likely to give it a look. I don't know if I'd classify him as a master storyteller or a comics icon--but he's very skilled, he has an incredible knack for dialog, and he writes stories that, no matter how ridiculous, seem real . In a medium where characters frequently violate the rules of physics, that's not alway

VAMPIRE VIXENS OF THE WEHRMACHT “If You Want Blood” one-shot (Bump and Grind Comics, August 2013, second printing with foreword by film maker Paul Campion) Writers: The Emperor + Alex Ronald. Artist: Alex Ronald. Letterer: Jim Campbell. Original Concept: Alex Ronald. (Parental Advisory, Adult Content) Limited print run, but digital copies are available from http://www.vampirevixens.co.uk/ If you can’t figure out what this comic is about from that title, then I’m guessing you’ve been living for decades in a cave without a DVD player and no access to cable television. VAMPIRE VIXENS OF THE WEHRMACHT is a fast-paced horror comic driven by action, rooted in World War II history, and dripping with blood, gore and tantalizing sexual imagery. What makes it work is a light-hearted approach to the subject matter, all in fun but never silly or stupid. You may find yourself laughing at several of the scenarios or chuckling at the devilish dialogue. VAMPIRE VIXENS O
