    along than the one in The Secret Service building a whole world and a few distinctive characters already It s a fun idea and I m tentatively interested in seeing more Finally the two non Millar strips I ve never read Rex Royd before but I can see why it gets a bad press Written by celebrity misanthrope Frankie Boyle and drawn by Mike Dowling it is willfully incoherent a series of sci fi fragments seemingly skimmed from the top of Boyle s consciousness I didn t hate it the way many critics have but it s certainly hard to see the point of a series that seems to be teenage angst poetry reimagined as a superhero comic Finally there s Death Sentence by Monty Nero and Mike Dowling again It s an easy fit for CLiNT a story about a sexually transmitted disease that kills you in six months but gives you random super powers for that time It feels very nineties but not in a bad way There s nothing hugely surprising here but it s a neat high concept well established As with the other strips barring Rex Royd which doesn t seem to be going anywhere in particular the proof of the high concept will be in whether further chapters develop that concept in an interesting manner I neither loved nor hated CLiNT a step up from the contact revulsion a glance through its pages caused on original launch The art throughout looks great reproduced at a larger size than US comics format and with Gibbons and Manley both in a very British action comics art tradition the latter s work is reminiscent of Steve Yeowell in places which should prove recommendation enough there s a feeling of cultural consistency that knits the magazine together and sets it apart from the pure US reprint titles that bundle Marvel and DC superhero comics for the UK newsstand Ardent Millar haters are unlikely to be converted by anything here but CLiNT 2 1 showcases the better side of his high concept high action schtick It s entertaining in a bombastic slightly crass way and at 4 25 is a cheaper way of dipping into Millar s current output than tracking down the single issues Worth a try if you ve got a dull train journey ahead and a fiver in your pocket Line Break By Mark Clapham Mark Clapham is a Devon based writer and editor You can find out more about him at the egotistically named markclapham com Share CLiNT 2 1 Tags CLiNT Comics Dave Gibbons Death Sentence Frankie Boyle Gerry Alanguilan Leinil Yu Mark Millar Mike Dowling Monty Nero Rex Royd Super Crooks The Secret Service Titan Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big

    wish DC made more of It s not high art by any stretch of the imagination but I found it deeply likable Smallville Season 11 is being serialised in cheap weekly installments on Comixology or alternatively the print version wraps up three weeks of story along with sketches and a rather pointless episode guide I suspect reprinted though I haven t checked from a similar feature in the last Smallville comic DC put out a decade ago The episodic online version works fine but each chapter feels a little thin so you might want to stick to print instead Pick your poison Line Break By Mark Clapham Mark Clapham is a Devon based writer and editor You can find out more about him at the egotistically named markclapham com Share Smallville 1 Tags Brian Q Miller Comics DC Pere Perez Smallville Smallville Season 11 Superman Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies Comics Read Younger Looking Flesh our first webcomic Tags Advent

  • Watching the robot detective: Matt Wilson on Copernicus Jones and the Supervillain Handbook | Shiny Shelf
    stuff like Rick Dickensworth Male Secretary I came up with the name Copernicus Jones through that and for a long time it was just a joke bouncing around in my skull It was only about two years ago that I thought about making it into an actual comic and I just sort of wrote a script out of the blue I meant for it to be a full on noir parody but in the process of writing it turned into a more serious story I had the script for the first issue of the comic sitting around for a few months before I mentioned it on War Rocket Ajax and met Daniel who was just a godsend for the comic I can t imagine a better artist for it Shiny Shelf Are you a big noir reader Matt Wilson I ve read the basics Hammett Chandler I ve got some gaps There are a ton of Charles Willeford books I need to get to I have to admit the lion s share of my knowledge about noir comes from movies and I think that comes through in Copernicus Jones which I think reads as a take on film noir more than anything I love the genre and I love all the recent attempts to modernize it or parody it Drive is such a great neo noir And for parody I can t recommend Dead Men Don t Wear Plaid with Steve Martin enough Shiny Shelf Following your work from The ISS to War Rocket Ajax your twitter feeds and tumblr not to mention others it seems like you re involved in a lot of different web projects What do you see as the advantages and disadvantages of launching ideas online Matt Wilson The big disadvantage is that it s such a big pond Almost everybody is a small fish because there aren t any gatekeepers There are millions of people who think they re the funniest person on the Internet With all that chatter it s hard to get anyone to listen to YOU But it isn t impossible Keeping at something often means you can build an audience and projects often lead to other projects as you make connections and meet like minded talented people The biggest advantage and this is really a flip side of the coin is that there s basically no risk If you start a blog and it just doesn t strike a chord you can retire it with nothing lost except the time you invested in it Same goes for a webcomic And really you don t even really have to care if you have an audience or not If you like doing it keep doing it All you have to pay is your time and a few bucks for a domain In a lot of cases you don t even have to bother with a hosting fee Shiny Shelf You mentioned earlier that every journalist really wants to be a novelist and that
