Kurtis Wiebe has been teasing a new series that he’s been working on alongside Meg Dejmal and John ‘Roc’ Upchurchwith. Wiebe just sent along the official details for Rat Queens. The book is being described as a “Fantasy Comedy Bloodfest” and it “follows four lady legends waist deep into
rivers of blood in the endless quest for gold, guts and grog”. A fantasy tale filled with blood and monsters, sounds like a surefire winner. You can check out the final teaser images below and expect more details to come in the following weeks. READ MORE

Depicted below are Hannah and Violet. Wiebe describes his new series as “Tank Girl” and Bridesmaids meets “Lord of the Rings”. He also promises monsters and blood. Stay tuned for more teasers on Monday! READ MORE
With the release of Debris #4, Kurtis J. Wiebe and Riley Rossmo are once again closing a chapter on another successful collaboration. The epic finale to this well-written, and beautifully illustrated, junk-punk series follows Maya as she clashes with Raven, the leader of Athabasca, and leads the Athabascan Tribe to victory in a massive battle between humanity and the Colossals; more specifically, the wasteland dragon spirit, Nogo.
Keeping up with the speed of the previous installments, Wiebe and Rossmo continue to approach the narrative with an accelerated pace that delivers until the very epic end. It’s just a shame that it’s over. READ MORE
With only one more issue ready for release next month, Kurtis J. Wiebe and Riley Rossmo’s Debris #3 perfectly sets the stage for the epic finale to this well-written, and beautifully illustrated, junk-punk series. Following the last installment, Maiden outcast, Kessel, joins Maya in her quest to find the legendary water source located in Athabasca, in hopes of saving the last human tribe on earth. As the story progresses, however, it becomes abundantly clear that Maya and the rest of her tribe aren’t the only humans left in this post-apocalyptic world. READ MORE
Following the first issue of a new, four-issue, mini-series by Kurtis J. Wiebe and Riley Rossmo, Debris #2 continues with Maya settling into her new role as Protector of Maiden. After Jormungand destroys the village’s only water maker, Maya leaves Maiden behind to carry out Calista’s final request to find Athabasca—a legendary water source, the last one in this post-apocalyptic, dystopian wasteland, that could ultimately save her people. What she encounters along the way is a more ferocious “breed” of umbra, and a past villager of Maiden with a vague history with her fallen mentor. READ MORE
Kurtis J. Wiebe stole our hearts last year with his incredibly dark murder-mystery, “Green Wake”, and he’s exploded onto the comic scene ever since. He’s got a brilliant mind full of ideas, and he stretches his work across multiple genres proving that he’s no one-trick pony. Although he’s new to the comic world, he’s already made a huge impact, proving himself as a talented storyteller.
His newest book, Grim Leaper, is a tragic, gory, romantic comedy that mixes Final Destination with Groundhog Day. It follows Lou Collins, a man who cannot stop dying, only to wake up in the body of strangers. But his monotonous life takes a wild turn after he falls in love with a fellow leaper. We caught up with Wiebe about his new series, wrapping up “Green Wake”, his plans for the future, and a whole lot more. READ MORE
Wiebe and Rossmo teamed up to bring us one of the year’s best horror comics with “Green Wake”, and though the series saw an unfortunate early cancellation due to low sales (despite the rave reviews), they are back together this July with Debris. The book sounds nothing like “Green Wake” other than the fact that the dream team is back together, and for that we couldn’t be happier. “Debris” is set in the distant future, a time where the world has wasted away and the spirits of old have come back to ravish the world once and for all. One rough and tough girl quests to save humanity in the midst of the chaos. Yeah, it sounds awesome as sh*t. You can expect some insane creature designs from Rossmo and top notch storytelling from Wiebe as “Debris” hits this summer from Image Comics. Check the preview after the jump. READ MORE
Sad as I may be, Green Wake is coming to its final issue next week. This series has been nothing short of phenomenal in every regard since the very first issue, and it’s a shame to see it end. The series landed the number one spot on my Best Comics of 2011 list, and I now feel it belongs among my favorite comics ever. I’ve been ranting and raving about how amazing this book is since last year, so after next week, I promise I’ll stop. But for the love of god(s) and all that is holy, you’ve gotta read this book. Wiebe is a master storyteller, and Rossmo’s art is top notch. check out the monstrous 9-page preview after the jump. Read on for the skinny…
Kurtis Wiebe dropped this bomb on us yesterday, Green Wake is currently being re-released as a serialized web comic, and it’s completely free! You now have absolutely no excuses. The book will be available on Keenspot with daily updates starting at issue #1. You know we love Green Wake here at BD, so find out why. Find the link after the jump.
While Green Wake may be on its way out, Wiebe is not going away any time soon. Along with the much anticipated release of Peter Panzerfaust, Wiebe announced that he will be penning a “gory romantic comedy” called The Grim Leaper. The series follows Lou Collins who just can’t stop dying, and waking up in new bodies. In a desperate search to break the ridiculous curse, Lou comes across a fellow doom and gloomer, and yadda, yadda, yadda, they fall in love. Read on for the skinny
It’s becoming increasingly hard to talk about Green Wake because of how amazing and dark it is. Sadly, this week brings on the second to last issue of the series, but I have no doubt that Green Wake will continue to be read for years to come. If you’re not reading this series, do so before I explode. Check the sweet preview below full of goodies and creatures crawling your way.
This is highly unusual given that it’s only supposed to be my “pick” of the week, but it’s my column so I’ll do as I damn well please! I’m seriously bursting at the seams with excitement for both of these titles (which you probably know by now). To be frank, the new Daredevil is without a doubt one of the best ongoing books right now at Marvel. Green Wake on the other hand, is one of the best horror titles anywhere. While these two books may be completely distinct in almost every possible way, they are both truly commendable comics that deserve some attention. Read on for the skinny…
Welcome to the weekly previews for August 3rd, 2011 here at Graphic Content! Let me preface this week by saying that there are A LOT of good comics coming out this week. Though every week has it’s highlights, I believe this is the best of the summer with several books by Snyder, the start of Spider Island, and the second to last Flashpoint issue! Get ready for some time indoors this week because there are way too many books for you spend you days running around outside in the sun like a loser.
The truth is everyone would read all the books if they had the time and money, but in reality most of us don’t. Here you will find a little taste of some major comics being released each week, my take on them, and, as always, feels free to discuss below. Whether you have been into comics since you were a little one, or are new to the game, I’m here to help you decide which books are for you. I’ve picked out some comics I feel will stand out in the coming week and listed them under their respective publisher, with over a dozen previews of some of your favorite books such as ”AMAZING SPIDER-MAN”, “GATES OF GOTHAM”, and “SWEET TOOTH”. Read on for the skinny…
This week is going to be filled with awesome titles gracing the shelves of our local comic shops. That being said, I plan on dropping a lot of money on comics this week. However, I have chosen Scott Snyder’s “AMERICAN VAMPIRE: SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST” Issue #1 for my pick of the week. (This was originally tied with “GREENWAKE” for the staff pick.)
Once in a while I wake up with a hangover wondering, “Where the hell am I?” Luckily that hasn’t happened to me in a while, and I hope the answer will never be Green Wake. Kurtis Wiebe and Riley Rossmo have brought us “GREEN WAKE”, published by Image Comics, the tale of a mysterious town whose residents have started turning up dead. It is Morely Mack’s mission to figure out who is behind the murders and he isn’t the only one with questions, I have some too. So keep reading for some clues behind this unusual story of a man, a murderer, and a hell of a lot of frogs.
