Things changed in when Naifeh co-created Gloomcookie with writer Serena Valentino.
Satirizing contemporary Gothic subculture, the supernatural fantasy propelled Naifeh to stardom. Naifeh currently draws and writes the Eisner-nominated Courtney Crumrin. Lark was on the cusp of the "big time" in March, The unnamed DC title, the golden age-sf inspired Terminal City , made Lark a fan favorite upon its publication.
In recent years, Lark turned his attentions toward superheroes such as Batman, Daredevil, Captain America, and Spider-man. He is designing and illustrating the 30th anniversary edition of Michael Moorcock's Behold the Man for Mojo.
Hiring Picacio for the Behold the Man remains an editorial career highlight. Not only did Picacio produce what remains the finest edition of the classic story, but the work heralded one of the most acclaimed cover artists of the forthcoming century. He can often be found pontificating on Twitter and over at The Geek Curmudgeon. If you find any errors, typos or other stuff worth mentioning, please send it to editor sfsite.
Nexus Graphica by Rick Klaw. One of my favorite pages is the one included here.
I love how the artist has drawn the panels to match the Arabian feel and architecture. It may seem like a simple stylistic thing but it is something that adds tremendous flavor to an already tasty page. I dare you. The truth is though that when you consider the tremendous page count it really is a pretty solid deal. I mean how many Marvel books are you picking up, like me, which cost you a dollar less than that and provide about half the pages?
Share on. While the Djinn are absolutely a highlight of this story, we also get to meet other characters who are tangentially related to the Aladdin story but have gotten little play in other modern-day media — save for the occasional SyFy TV movie or an unfairly forgotten animated film.
Editorial Reviews. About the Author. Ian Edginton is a multi Eisner-nominated writer who has Book 1 of 3 in Aladdin: Legacy of the Lost (Issues) (3 Book Series). It is the world of Ala ad-Din, better known as ALADDIN. Thief, gambler, liar and cheat, born in a Issues. Add all to Cart · Aladdin: Legacy of the Lost #1 (of 3).
Their dynamic really works in the book, but unfortunately, this is also one of the primary drawbacks of Aladdin: Legacy of the Lost. Perhaps I have too much of the anime magi in my head, but with how little we get to see Sinbad in the story, it leaves you wanting a lot more, to say nothing of the Djinn and the mythology presented for them in this iteration.
While it may seem unrealistic at this point, I hope Edginton and co. While the development of the supporting cast leaves something to be desired, the art does not. Patrick Reilly and Stjepan Sejic did a fantastic job with these fully painted pages. While this might be a stretch, I was often reminded of all the wonderful concept art that Ralph McQuarrie had done for George Lucas on the original Star Wars. With any luck, Hollywood will one day use his art to help produce the next iteration of Aladdin on the screen once the highly anticipated Disney adaptation has run its course.
And I loved it for that! An epic adventure that twists the classic saga into dark, unexplored territories with multi-Eisner nominated writer Ian Edginton! This Aladdin is supposed to be more mature than the Disney version, but here he is flipping tables over in frustration after not getting what he wants. That's just the beginning of the creepy undertones. Kleine Teile - Erstickungsgefahr.
While this may take several years, every generation needs their own take on the character, and I really believe this could be the one for the next. Aladdin: Legacy of the Lost is a fantastic depiction of a well-loved mythology. Despite a lack of development in the supporting cast, the great art and a new take on the material make this graphic novel a fantastic showcase for what the medium can do in the right hands.
