One Week One Comic: The Wicked + The Divine #42

Alex: Every Wednesday on Twitter, I pick a comics issue that caught my eye and do an illustrated thread of little observations and stuff I enjoyed about it. It’s called #oneweekonecomic, and I’m collating each thread into its own blog post.

Except this week, I broke the rules. My pick is Kieron Gillen/Jamie McKelvie/Matt Wilson/Clayton Cowles’ THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #42, and the stuff I want to talk about is so spoilerific I can’t risk it wandering into someone’s timeline by accident. So we’re jumping straight to the blog post.

(I’ve actually got so much to say about this issue, I’ve already written a blog post about it over on TWATD. Why not double your pleasure and get it open in a tab now?)

Yeah, particularly hardcore spoilers follow beneath the cut.

The world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel is an expansive one filled with fascinating characters, from the leading protagonists to bit players who leave a big impression. To sort the Slayers from the Slayerettes, Alex, Tim + guest Buffyverse expert Imi Spencer-Dale have bracketed up 64(ish) characters, seeded them based on the number of episodes they appear in, and will be eliminating them one at a time in a knockout-style tournament.

Who will be the actual Chosen One? Follow us as we find out…

eBook: Eye on Springfield, Seasons One-Five

Our latest monthly Patreon-funded ebook is here!

This time, it’s a collection of Eye on Springfield essays on the first five seasons of The Simpsons, covering how the show evolved from its creation through to its first big changeover of staff.

This being Alex’s pet project, he’s gone hugely overboard and illustrated the whole thing by hand. (You might argue that no one would ever even notice that the Eye on Springfield logo has been redrawn, but… hey, I’m mentioning it now.)

You can get it from the Tim + Alex Patreon, by pledging as little as $1 – which will also get you access to all our previous ebooks.

One Week One Comic (Bonus Post): Runaways

Alex: Today we’ve been running the assorted One Week One Comic threads I’ve been tweeting over the past month. For the sake of completeness, though, here’s a post adapting the thread that started it all – not on a single issue, but the first two trades of Rainbow Rowell/Kris Anka/Matt Wilson/Joe Caramagna’s RUNAWAYS.

Spoilers up to issue #12 after the cut.

One Week One Comic: Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt #1

Alex: So, over the past month, I’ve started playing with something new on Twitter. Each week, I pick a comics issue that caught my eye and do an illustrated thread of little observations and stuff I enjoyed about it. There are a lot of problems with Twitter as a platform, though, so I thought I’d try collating those thoughts into blog posts. This is all very much in the experimental stages, so let us know what you think.

This time out, it’s Kieron Gillen/Caspar Wijngaard/Mary Safro/Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou’s PETER CANNON: THUNDERBOLT #1. Spoilers follow after the cut. In the case of this particular comic, pretty enormous spoilers.
