October already? How time flies!
We’ve got a stellar batch of new releases from Periscope’s many creators, plus some pre-orders and announcements for comics you won’t want to miss.

First up is a new installment of BANDETTE from Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover.

Has Inspector B.D. Belgique of the Special Police finally found the evidence he needs to bring down Absinthe and the FINIS crime syndicate once and for all? Will the insidious Absinthe discover the betrayal from his own inner circle? Will Bandette, the world’s greatest thief, face the deadly strangler known as Il Tredici… ALONE? And, just what is… the secret of the wardrobe? Plus: candy bars and a pirate!

Issue 8 is available for purchase via Comixology. Plus, enjoy a brand new Urchin Story with artist Emi Lennox for FREE right here.

Elsewhere in Europe, Natalie Nourigat has two new issues of her beautiful travel sketches available for purchase. TALLY MARKS #2 & #3 collect drawings from Natalie’s year-long sojourn to Paris and beyond, with a mix of observational drawings, comics, and landmark sketches for just 99 cents per issue!
Click here to buy Issue 2, and here for Issue 3.
(We also recommend this post from Tally on using black more decisively in your comics pages. Lots of fabulous examples!)

Jeff Parker and Sandy Jarrell’s METEOR MEN is now available for public preorder. You can hear more about Parker’s goals with the story and his process for working with Sandy over on Comic Book Resources. The book comes out on October 15th, but if you’re feeling extra impatient you can pick it up in digital installments starting here.

BRIDES OF HELLHEIM #1 is also out this week from Cullen Bunn and Joëlle Jones. Expanding the brutal universe of an undead Viking warrior, Rikard, and his endless struggle against forces of the occult, BRIDES offers a whole new storyline for new readers and old HELHEIM fans alike. A glowing review from Multiversity Comics calls particular attention to Joëlle’s work on the issue:

Blending a sense of realism in setting by staying true to the landscape and architecture of Scandinavia in the early A.D. times with a sense of fantasy through her use of a heavily inked and stylised portrayal of the characters and their use of magic, Jones grounds Bunn’s script with a dark and oppressive atmosphere. […] Jones’ inks are heavy and her shadows ever present and oppressive, which allows her to bring a real sense of movement to the fight scene through use of the inks to fill panels with harsh speed lines and ink splashes. The style is very reminiscent of the inking style of Matteo Scalera, especially in his work on “Dead Body Road” and it really kicks the issue up a notch.

Check out this preview at Comic Book Resources, then pick up a copy at your local comic shop!

For those of you in the mood for a little autobiographical detail with your history, check out Lucy Bellwood’s latest minicomic DOWN TO THE SEAS AGAIN, a travelogue describing her voyage aboard the last wooden whaling ship in the world. The issue is available in print and as a digital download on Gumroad. Read more on her blog.

PROMETHEUS FIRE AND STONE #1, written by Paul Tobin with art by COLDER collaborator Juan Ferreyra, is also out now, heralding the start of a massive, spooky crossover event. Read what Paul has to say about this issue here, then buy a copy for yourself right here.

Karl Kesel continues his stint writing X-FILES: YEAR ZERO with issue 3 — out now from IDW. Read a preview here.

Preorders for Benajmin Dewey’s complete TRAGEDY SERIES are now available! We can’t wait to get our hands on this collection of Dewey’s hilarious webcomic.
Also, in case you missed it, Alex Ross has done a stellar variant cover for TOOTH AND CLAW, Dewey’s upcoming project with writer Kurt Busiek. Take a peek right here.

And last, but certainly not least: Jonathan Case has announced his next graphic novel with Dark Horse! It’s a slick 1930s story called THE NEW DEAL, and from what we’ve seen so far it’s going to be a gem. You can read all about its origins and Jonathan’s methodology for crafting the story over in the exclusive Comic Book Resources announcement post. Be sure to follow Jonathan on Twitter for ongoing updates about the book’s progress.
That’s all from Periscope for now! Check back next week for more news.

Reblogging because IT’S OUT NOW!!!! :DDD

tally-art:

Tally Marks #3 comes out October 1, and you can pre-order it now! :D

This might be my favorite issue, because there was so much turmoil in my life last December—recently unemployed, couch surfing in a foreign country, visiting friends in London for my first holidays away from my family, not knowing what would come next…it was scary and exciting and lead to a lot of dynamic drawings.  I feel like I did some of my best work in London.

I hope you’ll check it out!

You can find it here or, if you want bigger images, here. The second site might be slow, though.
