The fourth issue of Comic Foundry, the Eisner-nominated comics lifestyle magazine, hits stands Oct. 8, and CF chief Tim Leong sent over four preview pages for us to share with you.
Leong said this issue “puts the spotlight on how comics and politics intersect.” It includes a big politics package, a cover feature interview with Mark Millar and Tony Harris on War Heroes, a preview of the third Whiteout series and an original Chip Zdarsky comic detailing the San Diego Comic Con secrets of Matt Fraction, Daniel Way, and Kurt Busiek.
You can check out the preview pages, along with commentary from Tim, after the jump. And if you’re in New York, The Comic Foundry gang is hosting a release party the day after the issue comes out. More details on the party, as well as the variant Mark Millar/Tony Harris birthday clown cover, can be found here.
• Tim says: “The opening page to Costumes, our fashion section. It’s looking at Animal Man as a style icon and finding a cool leather bomber in this season’s fashion line that emulates his aesthetic.”
• Tim: “A page from Politics Package — it’s a quiz to see if you can figure out if the quote is from Captain America, John McCain or Barack Obama.”
• Tim: “A look inside writer/artist Jimmy Palmiotti’s Florida studio.”
• Tim: “We quizzed artists Ryan Ottley (Invincible) and Charlie Adlard (The Walking Dead) about Robert Kirkman, the writer of their respective books.”
