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!
TALES FROM THE CRYPT #2 FEATURES TWO STORIES FROM LEGENDARY COMICS ARTIST BERNIE WRIGHTSON “LOST CLASSICS” FROM LATE CREATOR APPEAR IN COLOR FOR THE FIRST TIMEfrom the official press release . . . . . . .NEW YORK - (March 21, 2017) - The entire comics industry was saddened to learn of the passing of legendary comics artist Bernie Wrightson this past weekend. Wrightson’s name was synonymous with the best the horror comics genre had to offer and he often spoke of the lasting influence EC comics titles such as the original TALES FROM THE CRYPT and VAULT OF HORROR had on his work.So, it seems only appropriate that two of Wrightson’s stories are included in Super Genius’ new revival of the TALES FROM THE CRYPT series.Issue #2 (in comic shops this Wednesday) features two “lost classics” from Wrightson, “Stake Out” and “Feed It!”, both appearing in color for the first time. The two stories had originally appeared in black and white in other publications but when CRYPT editor Jim Salicrup rem…
It was a cold night, but it didn’t stop the faithful from spending some time on the main drag in Oxford PA for the monthly First Friday celebration. This month, the theme was Super-Heroes and employees (and sometimes customers) at several establishments went along with the theme and dressed appropriately. (We had our Batman tee shirt underneath our sweater but spared the innocent, only flashing it to friends.) It was the perfect theme for the recently opened MAROON HORNET COMICS shop at 45 South Third Street in Oxford. Owner Randy Grace employed the mercenary-for-money Deadpool as a store greeter, and local writer Greg Cox was in attendance, signing his new book. The store is fully stocked now, and has an impressive assortment of comics, games, posters, and related toys and accessories. Randy and Lori Grace are very friendly and happy to be able to provide a comics outlet in Oxford for local pop culture fans.Greg Cox is a best-selling author, who’s earned a deserved rep…
