NYC. THE SEVENTIES. DISCO. PUNK. BLACKOUTS. SUMMER OF SAM. YANKEES FEVER. TIMES SQUARE.
This is the world of THE KITCHEN, a new 8 issue mini-series announced by Vertigo today. Written by newcomer Ollie Masters with art by illustrator Ming Doyle, THE KITCHEN follows a group of four mob wives who get a taste for crime when their husbands are jailed.
In an exclusive interview with editor Will Dennis, DC ALL ACCESS gives you the inside scoop about what’s cooking in THE KITCHEN with a sneak peek inside the first issue.
Check out covers by Becky Cloonan and Ming Doyle in the gallery above. And be sure to pick up issue #1 this November!

The Carol Corps issue!
Today the solicits went out for Captain Marvel # 17, a special 40-page oversize issue! Above is the finalized version of the cover.
This issue is meant to be a celebration of all things Captain Marvel, so I knew from the start that the Carol Corps needed to make an appearance on the cover. It’s rare that you find so much raw enthusiasm for a comic book character. It’s been fantastic to see men,women and children alike adorned in Carol wear online and at conventions. It’s a testament to the house that Kelly Sue, Steve Wacker and Sana Amanat built.
I think of this cover as a thank you for that support.
Viva la Corps!
I just love this cover so much :)
I’m in the bottom right, standing guard over Pizza Dog, and my boyfriend Neil has got my back! Love this beautiful cover, and love the fun references and cameos from our friends. You did the Captain extra proud with some of the most beautiful covers in the game, Joe! :D
Mara #5 is out tomorrow! Pick it up at your local comic shop or on comiXology!

Everything’s on the table as far as the military’s position on Mara, but who’s the one with the nuclear option? How much power can one woman hold before the world says “enough”?
I’ll be at Phoenix Comicon, May 23rd - 26th, Table #2214. Looking forward to my first trip to Arizona!
No pre-commissions, but I’ll be taking commissions at the show on a first come, first served basis, and I’ll have prints, totes, and thoughts on Star Trek for anyone who comes by! :)
Mara #2 is in stores and on ComiXology today!
As superstar athlete Mara Prince’s superpower manifestation is caught on live TV, her life rapidly starts to spiral out of control. The media descends like vultures. Her handlers go into spin mode. The footage is seen around the world, and this young woman, who only hours ago was the darling of pop culture, is now being slammed and ridiculed for being a fraud and a liar. But the more she tries to fight back, the only thing she’s doing is escalating the problem. A sci-fi take on real world superheroes by the powerhouse team of BRIAN WOOD, MING DOYLE and JORDIE BELLAIRE!
Here’s one of my favorite panels from the issue along with the cover. You can preview or buy Mara #2 right over here.
“Brian left most of the stylistic details up to me, but early on he threw a lot of fun keywords my way, like “supercities,” “blimps,” and “Starship Troopers,” which I was instantly all over. I haven’t had the opportunity to draw anything on the scale of this story before, so whenever I get to a panel in the script that says something like “futurecity gridlock,” I just have so much fun.”
