Tragic!", featured cover art by Young Avengers/Phonogram artist Jamie McKelvie – and as a companion piece to the record, the group assembled a full-length comic, featuring work from an assortment of their favorite indie comic creators.  And Argos even has an entire side project, Spoiler Alert, dedicated to recording songs about superheroes.

MTVG-FatbottomCover

Cartoonist Jen Vaughn's "Avery Fatbottom, Renaissance Fair Detective" is one of the craziest and coolest comics we've encountered lately – a digital-only series featuring the distinctly un-digital adventures of the eponymous Avery and her friend Gwen, as they handle the daily chaos and calamity of working at a Renaissance Fair, a uniquely anachronistic world of jugglers, jousters, jesters, and historical oddities. We recently spoke to Vaughn about her creative process, her inspirations for this series, and her own experiences in the weird world of Renaissance re-enactments. (And she even drew us a special exclusive MTVGeek-centric image of her characters!)

matter-of-life-crop

Some cartoonists stick to a particular area, but others, like Jeffrey Brown, like to branch out. In addition to getting personal with graphic memoirs, Brown lightens the mood with his “Star Wars” books. In his most recent release, “A Matter of Life,” Brown talks about growing up the son of a minister and losing his faith. However, instead of being a book all about doubt and belief, he also examines the power and influence of family. MTV Geek spoke to Brown about “A Matter of Life,” what inspired him to turn Darth Vader into a doting dad in “Darth Vader and Son” and “Vader’s Little Princess,” and what we can expect from his soon-to-be-released “Jedi Academy.”
