In the latest issue of Goners, the battle for King’s Bluff continues. The fight may finally be turning in favor of the Latimers and their allies. The motives behind the monsters attacks are becoming clearer. Meanwhile, Josiah learns a dark truth about his parents while he’s between life and death. Semahn and Corona are provide some of the best development yet for the series. The larger picture is starting to come together as we, the readers, begin to explore the dark history of the Latimer family and what’s really at stake.
Goners has been a non-stop ride since the first issue. Jacob Semahn’s started the series off with a bang and it’s just kept going, the deaths of the Raleigh and Evelyn Latimer was the catalyst to the tragic events revolving around their children. Semahn’s use of real world folklore for the monsters encountered in the series is a nice touch. Since my previous review of the series, I have grown to enjoy Jorge Corona’s artwork over the last three issues, it has reminded me of Mike Mignola’s work. Continue reading Review: Goners #4
I’m always on the lookout for new and innovative comics and the creators who make them possible, and this year has already been a great one for creator Jorge Corona. His work on Goners with writer Jacob Semahn, and his work as both writer and artist on Feathers, two uniquely wonderful series, caught my attention very quickly. So, when I had the opportunity to chat with Jorge about his work and background I jumped at the chance. The creator talks about his introduction to the medium, his inspiration as an artist, and his current and future projects. Continue reading Q&A with Jorge Corona
Feathers is a new comic mini-series by Goners artist Jorge Corona being published by BOOM! Studios! Feathers is the story of a young boy named Poe, coincidentally he’s covered in feathers, who befriends Bianca and agrees to help her get back home. Which is important, Feathers is set in a Victorian Era-type city divided into to districts: The White Wall and the Maze. Both have the feel of being something straight out of a Charles Dickens novel, especially the Maze. Bianca just happens to be from the White Wall part of town and Poe is from the Maze.
The story begins with two individuals speaking about a deal to break the balance. I’m guessing it’s some deal to break the power structure of the city, just theorizing. I believe that one of the two individuals is the Guide, the guardian spirit of the White Wall. Again, just theorizing. A man called Gabriel discovers the baby Poe abandoned in some back alley of the Maze and decides to protect the baby. Jump forward eleven years, Poe has become something of an urban legend called the Ghost. Hiding out on rooftops, causing mischief for the local authorities and still being raised by Gabriel, who he calls Pop. Bianca, on the other hand, dreams of seeing the world beyond the White Wall. She gets her chance when her father arranges a trip to help establish a road between the docks and the White Wall. When the carriage she’s in stops, Bianca runs off into the Maze with guards in pursuit. Poe intervenes during the chase, only to be spotted and cornered by Bianca. Poe, wanting to avoid the guards, takes Bianca into hiding and thus begins the adventure she’s been waiting for. Continue reading Review: Feathers #1
