Comics News from Snow White to Harley Quinn

Open Borders

Convention season has begun, and that means the comics news cycle is heating up. Here are some news flashes from around the comicsphere.

Daughters of Ys

Daughters of Ys

First Second has been breaking some news lately: They did a cover reveal for their book Open Borders: The Science and Ethics of Immigaration at Paste Magazine, and they gave the AV Club a first look at M.T. Anderson and Jo Rioux’s folklore-inspired graphic novel Daughters of Ys.

Snow White

Cecil Castellucci, writer of The P.L.A.I.N. Janes, Soupy Leaves Home, and Shade the Changing Girl, will write a three-issue retelling of the Disney classic Snow White for Dark Horse comics. Italian artist Gabriele Bagnoli will be the artist for the project. The first issue goes on sale in June, and presumably Dark Horse will eventually collect it into a graphic novel.

Haunted Mansion

IDW, in the meantime, has announced they will publish a Haunted Mansion graphic novel, based on the Disney ride, written by Sina Grace (Iceman) with art by Egle Bartolini (Disney Princess Comics). The book, which will be pitched at middle-graders, is due out in September.

Harley Quinn 4

I rounded up some of the latest news about the DC Zoom and DC Ink graphic novels at ICv2, along with some previews of interior art. Here’s a look at an unlettered page from Mariko Tamaki and Steve Pugh’s Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass.
