JACOB - from comicbook.com:Ed Piskor, Hip Hop Family Tree and X-Men: Grand Design Artist, Reportedly Passes Away at Age 41

“Ed Piskor, the artist of the Eisner Award-winning comic Hip Hop Family Tree, has reportedly passed away, per a Facebook post by his sister. Piskor, the co-host of popular podcast and YouTube channel Cartoonist Kayfabe, had recently become embroiled in controversy after two women accused Piskor of sexual misconduct, leading to the cancellation of a planned art exhibit in Pittsburgh showcasing his Hip Hop Family Tree art and Cartoonist Kayfabe co-host Jim Rugg announcing that he was ending his "working relationship" with Piskor. On Monday, Piskor posted a lengthy note where he indicated he had plans to take his own life after refuting some of the allegations against him.”


“Last month, comics artist Molly Dwyer posted private messages between herself and Piskor from 2020, which Dwyer stated occurred when she was 17 years old. Dwyer shared one post in which Piskor called her a "naughty girl" and others where he offered to let her stay with him in Pittsburgh. A screen capture of some of Dwyer's comments can be found here {link in the article}. A second artist, Molly Wright, came forward in a now-deleted Twitter/X post and claimed that Piskor offered his agent's phone numbers for sexual favors. In the note posted on Monday, Piskor apologized for his behavior towards Dwyer but said that he wasn't attempting anything untoward. He also denied Wight's account.”

SPENCER - from dc.com:From the DC Vault: Death in the Family: Robin Lives! #1: What Happens After Jason Todd Survives His Encounter with The Joker?


“Following the seminal events of 1988’s original Batman #428 and 2023’s Batman #428 “fauxsimile” edition, featuring an alternate ending in which Jason Todd survives his brutal encounter with The Joker, DC is planning an all-new story that tells readers what happens to the ex-Robin during and after his recovery from nearly being killed by the Clown Prince of Crime.


On Wednesday, July 10, writer J.M. DeMatteis and artist Rick Leonardi add an all-new chapter to this iconic story when From the DC Vault: Death in the Family: Robin Lives! #1 arrives at participating comic book shops and digital retailers. 


‘Continuing this classic, and controversial, story and following in the footsteps of Jim Starlin and Jim Aparo, two creators I greatly admire, has been both a challenge and a joy,’ said DeMatteis. ‘This is a great opportunity to tell a story that’s big on action, but also takes a very deep dive into the heads of our main characters as we ponder what would have happened if Jason Todd had survived The Joker’s brutal attack. And having a master like Rick Leonardi bringing it to life visually? I couldn’t ask for anything more.’”

It’s also [This is] the first book from Mignola’s all-new Dark Horse imprint, “Curious Objects.” Mignola and fellow artist Ben Stenbeck’s first book from their new “Lands Unknown” universe will be an anthology of folklore-inspired fantasy tales, both written and illustrated by Mignola. While it’s an anthology format, they take place in a shared universe that he’s cocreating with Stenbeck.


‘It all started with an Italian folktale about a boy who goes bowling with corpses,’ Mignola said in a statement. ‘I fell in love with the story as soon as I discovered it, but I wanted to play fast and loose when adapting it, so I created a whole new world. Not too different than our world a few centuries ago, but with a lot more gods and monsters. Once I created that world, new characters and stories just started pouring out of it.’

These stories explore many of the same macabre themes Mignola has shown a love for over the years, including tales of the undead, the devil, pirates and sorcerers. ‘There is a whole lot to play with here and I expect to be at it for a very long time,’ he said.

The Bowling With Corpses and Other Strange Tales From Lands Unknown anthology will be written and drawn by Mignola, colored by acclaimed colorist Dave Stewart and lettered by Clem Robins. It’s set for release in bookstores on Nov. 5 and comic book shops on Nov. 6.”https://www.thewrap.com/mike-mignola-bowling-with-corpses-lands-unknown-hellboy/
