« Entertaining…this intergalactic feline space story is both action-packed and full of humor. » -Albany Times Union

« It’s a sci-fi story first, make no mistakes, but with so many strong characters onboard, I look forward to the catfights, comedy and―wait for it―catastrophes to come. » -Comicon

« Captain Ginger rocks! » - Michael Allred, creator of Madman, artist of Silver Surfer

« This book is steeped in cat lore, cat behavior, and cat knowledge. » -Walter Simonson, writer/artist of Ragnarok and Thor, from his introduction

« A fantastic wild ride of space exploration, cat drama, and galactic size imagination. » -Everything Action

« So wonderfully trippy and science fiction-y it reminds readers what it is about sci-fi that they love. » - Adventures in Poor Taste

Ah, tiens, j’étais persuadé qu’il y avait déjà un sujet sur la série… J’avais seulement dû en parler sur le sujet sur The Wrong Earth

Une série qui pourrait plaire à Blacki : il y a des chats anthropomorphes, mais aussi de vrais chats.



Suart Moore a su me scotcher à l’occasion, notamment sur le premier numéro d’EGOs, particulièrement saisissant en termes d’enjeux et de propositions, et de narration.

Là, j’ai lu le premier numéro, et comment dire … c’est très particulier. Il faut sûrement aimer les chats plus que de raison pour apprécier.

Va falloir que je me renseigne : j’aime bien les deux auteurs… et les chats, bien entendu.




Après vérif’, tu l’avais en effet mentionné brièvement. Perso, je viens juste de la découvrir avec cette sortie en TPB, je n’ai vu passer aucune preview pour la série avant ça (ou alors je les ai loupées ^^)…

En même temps, c’est Ahoy comics…

La suite de la publication de la saison 2 de Captain Ginger se fera directement en numérique. La mini-série sera ensuite disponible en album.

Si les grands y sont contraints sur certains de leurs titres, il n’est pas étonnant que les plus petits y aient recours également…


Le communiqué d’AHOY COMICS sur la reprise de leurs sorties :

AHOY Comics has announced it will resume publishing new comic books in June.

« The world pandemic has caused some problems with serialized comics publishing, particularly for small publishers like us, » said AHOY Comics Publisher Hart Seely. « But if there was ever a year that demonstrated the need for laugh-out-loud funny books that are actually funny, it is the year that is 2020. And AHOY Comics will be there for readers and retailers alike. »

AHOY Comics’ updated summer publishing schedule includes:

Ash & Thorn: A five-issue mini-series by writer Mariah McCourt, artist Soo Lee and colorist Pippa Bowland, with lettering by Rob Steen and covers by Jill Thompson.

Originally scheduled to debut on April 1, Ash & Thorn #1 will be published on June 24, followed by #2 on July 8, #3 on July 29, #4 on August 19 and #5 on Sept. 9.

Billionaire Island: A six-issue mini-series by writer Mark Russell, artist Steve Pugh, and colorist Chris Chuckry, with lettering by Rob Steen. The first issue features a cover by Pugh and a variant cover by Pia Guerra.

The series returns on July 1 with a new second issue, followed by #3 on July 22, #4 on August 12, and #5 on Sept. 16.

Captain Ginger Season 2: Dogworld: A six-issue mini-series by writer Stuart Moore, artists June Brigman and Roy Richardson and colorist Veronica Ghandini, with lettering by Rob Steen.

Captain Ginger: Dogworld, which had two issues published at the time of lockdown, will complete its serialization in digital exclusive editions from Comixology. The first new issue of #3, will be released digitally on June 10, followed by #4 on July 8, #5 on August 5 and #6 on Sept. 2.

« Readers can look forward to more space-cat drama, including a massive starship crash, a small tragedy, and Captain Ginger’s stranded crew will finally make first contact with the mysterious, intelligent dogs – who may or may not play poker in their spare time, » Moore said.

Each upcoming issue of Captain Ginger: Dogworld will contain a special Digital Bonus Book at no additional cost: #3 features Dragonfly & Dragonflyman #1, #4 features Billionaire Island #1, #5 features Bronze Age Boogie #1, and #6 will feature will feature a selection from Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror, including Hunt Emerson’s Black Cat comics.

In June, AHOY will also be publishing the trade paperback of Dragonfly & Dragonflyman, the prequel to the dazzling series The Wrong Earth, by writer Tom Peyer, artist Peter Krause, colorist Andy Troy and letterer Rob Steen. The trade paperback will be released in comic-book stores on June 3 and in bookstores on June 16.

« There was no one-size-fits-all solution for AHOY’s publishing schedule, so we took a creative approach, » said Kit Caoagas, AHOY Comics’ marketing associate. « There was a long anticipation for the debut of Ash & Thorn and issue 1 was already printed and at Diamond, so we wanted to get that to market as soon as possible. Billionaire Island had one issue published before the lockdown, so we’ve decided to resume publication as soon as possible on a slightly accelerated schedule, with an eye toward getting the trade paperback out in the fall, as originally planned. And, after a long hiatus, it just didn’t make sense to resume print publication of the second season of Captain Ginger. As with all AHOY books, we’ll release the trade paperback of Captain Ginger: Dogworld in print and digital on schedule, so that old-school sci fi fans and cat fanatics can read the whole story in their preferred format. »

Originally scheduled for release this summer, as part of the company’s fourth wave of releases, Penultiman, the new super-hero title by Peyer and Alan Robinson, will be resolicited for a later date.

Curieux de lire Captain Ginger chez Delcourt. Plus récemment, j’ai lu le premier Billionaire Island, c’est vraiment pas mal.
