Matt Price’s best graphic novels of 2014!
Wednesday, January 7, 2015
Itching for something new and different to read to start the new year? Then check out Matt Price’s picks for the 10 best graphic novels of 2014!
True-life stories of aging parents, up-and-coming rappers and superstar wrestlers mingled with fictional tales of alternate worlds and 1940s detectives and superheroes in a wide selection of graphic novels worth reading in 2014.
1. “Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?” (Bloomsbury)
Roz Chast’s memoir about dealing with her aging parents is honest and heartbreaking. But Chast manages to find humor and poignancy as she recounts her time as a conflicted caretaker for her parents.
2. “Seconds: A Graphic Novel” (Ballantine Books)
“Scott Pilgrim” creator Bryan Lee O’Malley returns with a full-color graphic novel about Katie, a chef who finds magic mushrooms that give her second chances to change her decisions in the past.
3. “The Shadow Hero” (First Second)
Gene Luen Yang and Sonny Liew look at the Golden Age comic-book hero the Green Turtle and extrapolate a possible origin of the character, who may have been comics’ first Asian-American superhero.
4. “Kill My Mother” (Liveright Publishing)
The 85-year-old Jules Feiffer has created a graphic novel tribute to the likes of Chandler and Hammett that examines and explores noir tropes in a fresh new way. The cartoonist, who has won an Oscar and a Pulitzer Prize, likely doesn’t need more accolades. But with this excellent graphic novel, he’s due them. Kinetic, insightful and instantly engrossing, “Kill My Mother” is one of the top graphic novels of the year.
5. “Here” (Pantheon)
In “Here,” Richard McGuire tells the story of a single space. The graphic novel follows the events that have occurred in one room over the course of centuries.
6. “Sugar Skull” (Pantheon)
“Sugar Skull” is the conclusion of Charles Burns’ graphic novel trilogy that began with “X’ed Out” and continued in “The Hive.” The journey of artist Doug and his avatar Nitnit, an anagram for and homage to Herge’s Tintin, is completed in this volume, as Doug has to confront his own self-deception. It’s a deeply psychological look at modern life.
7. “Doctors” (Fantagraphics)
In “Doctors,” Dash Shaw crafts a science-fictional story of a medical marvel with a dark downside. The Charon is a device that allows a doctor to enter a patient’s afterlife via a memory in the patient’s mind. The Charon can guide the patient back to life, but the process leaves the patients deeply disturbed, as they are pulled from the perfect afterlife they have created in their minds. Psychologically moving and unsettling.
8. “Over Easy” (Drawn and Quarterly)
Mimi Pond transports readers back to the early 1970s in California, as hippies gave way to punks and Pond was a waitress at the Imperial Cafe, which hosted an oddball yet endearing cast of characters.
9. “Andre the Giant: The Life and Legend” (First Second)
Box Brown has researched the life of one of the best-known professional wrestlers of all time and crafted a compelling story that looks at the impressive yet flawed man behind the charismatic TV persona.
10. “Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 2: 1981-1983″ (Fantagraphics)
Ed Piskor continues his comic strips examining the early days of hip-hop. In this volume, hip-hop begins to evolve into an industry, with the pros and cons that implies. Piskor brings these stories to life while at the same time invoking the style and braggadocio of early 1980s Marvel Comics, which seems strangely appropriate. Rappers including RUN-DMC, NWA, The Beastie Boys, Doug E Fresh, KRS One, ICE T and Public Enemy appear in this volume’s stories.
Matt Price’s best comics of 2014!
Wednesday, December 31, 2014
Speeding Bullet Comics owner Matt Price wrote about his top 10 comics of 2014 for NewsOK! Check out the list below, then stop in the store to check out some of these great issues!
The following are Matt’s selections for the 10 best comic book series of 2014!
1.”Wicked + Divine” (Image Comics). Writer Kieron Gillen and artist Jamie McKelvie crafted this story of gods returning to Earth. In the mythology of the series, every 90 years, 12 gods incarnate as humans, to live among the people of Earth. But two years later, they are dead. This time around, most of the gods have incarnated as musicians or performers, as they still seem to crave the adulation of the masses. But these aren’t benevolent gods; Gillen looks at the relationship between art and artist as well as artist and celebrity culture through a scathing metaphorical lens here, while at the same time providing a thrilling and at times disturbing tale. Colorist Matthew Wilson brings a warm palette that provides a poppy glamor to the series. McKelvie’s layouts and designs are likewise brilliant.
2.”Saga” (Image Comics). Writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Fiona Staples continue the story of parents from opposite sides of an intergalactic war. This mature-readers comic mixes space opera with family drama, as the relationships between characters are the true “Saga” within.
3.”The Multiversity” (DC Comics). Grant Morrison works with a variety of artists to tell the tales of many alternate worlds in the DC Comics pantheon, all apparently at risk from a coming apocalypse. There are epic ideas, heroes at the brink, and all kinds of metatextual hints to analyze.
4.”Shutter” (Image Comics). Kate Kristopher is a famous explorer in a line of famous explorers in a fantastic world in “Shutter,” from writer Joe Keatinge and artist Leila del Duca. Though she’s left that life, a family secret forces her back in this imaginative tale.
5.”Lumberjanes” (BOOM!). Writers Noelle Stevenson & Grace Ellis are joined by artist Brooke Allen in this story of five best friends at a decidedly unusual summer camp. It’s an all-ages title that really will appeal to all ages.
6.”The Fade Out” (Image Comics). The death of a movie starlet in 1948 Hollywood kicks off this noirish mystery series from Ed Brubaker and artist Sean Phillips.
7.”Transformers vs. G.I. Joe” (IDW Publishing). Writer/artist Tom Scioli, with co-writer John Barber, mixes 1980s action toys with Jack Kirby-style dynamism to create one of the most oddball, yet amazing, action titles of the year.
8.”Astro City” (DC Comics-Vertigo). Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson (with occasional guest artists) examine the superhero genre from a variety of viewpoints in the always-excellent “Astro City.”
9.”Ms. Marvel” (Marvel Comics). Writer G. Willow Wilson and artist Adrian Alphona introduced one of Marvel’s most popular new characters in quite a while in Kamala Khan. She’s a Pakistani-American teen from New Jersey who finds herself in over her head when she receives superpowers. The character-driven drama is reminiscent of the best of early “Amazing Spider-Man” while at the same time being thoroughly modern.
10.”Low” (Image Comics). Writer Rick Remender joins artist Greg Tocchini in a beautifully drawn aquatic fantasy. After the expansion of the sun, mankind has been driven underwater to survive. While probes search for a safe haven on another planet, mankind dwindles into decadence below.

Signing with the “Savage Knuckleheads” today!
Wednesday, October 8, 2014
On Oct. 8, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Speeding Bullet will host a “Savage Knuckleheads” event and signing with writer Brian Winkeler (Knuckleheads) and color artist Jordan Boyd (Knuckleheads, Savage Hulk, God Hates Astronauts and more)!
The Hulk faces off with Doctor Strange in “Savage Hulk” #5, with colors by Jordan Boyd. Here’s how Marvel.com describes the issue: Starting October 8, with SAVAGE HULK #5, the writing team of Corinna S. Bechko and artist Gabriel Hardman - also wife and husband - embark on a two-issue journey that revisits the mid-1980’s Hulk banishment to the Crossroads by Dr. Strange. The two creators clearly relish the chance to revisit a unique era in which Hulk - seemingly stripped of any shred of his humanity and completely silent - lets his brutal actions speak for him!
More on Marvel.com
Knuckleheads, meanwhile, is the brainchild of Oklahoma writer Brian Winkeler. It’s drawn by Robert Wilson IV and colored by Boyd.
In Knuckleheads, Trevor K. Trevinski and Lance Powers were ordinary roommates until aliens visited a massively hungover Trev and gave him The Crystal Fist - a cosmic weapon that he can only seem to harness using videogame controllers and he only uses to cheat on video games and steal cable. But when a monster attacks the city, Trev must overcome his instinctive laziness and Lance’s bromantic nagging to save the day.
Come get an autograph from both of these Oklahoma creators from 4-7 p.m. today at Speeding Bullet Comics!

New Image #1 from Rick Remender!
Wednesday, July 30, 2014
Image debuts a new creator-owned sci-fi title!
In the far distant future, the sun’s premature expansion has irradiated Earth, sending humanity to the lowest depths of the seas, hidden within radiation-shielded cities, while probes scour the universe for inhabitable worlds to relocate to. After tens of thousands of years, a single probe returns, crashing on Earth’s surface, a now-alien place no human has seen for many millennia.
Frequent collaborators RICK REMENDER (BLACK SCIENCE, Uncanny Avengers) and GREG TOCCHINI (Last Days of American Crime, Uncanny X-Force) dive into an aquatic sci-fi/fantasy tale following two teams from the last remaining cities undersea as they race to the most unexpected alien world of all - the surface of Earth.
“The Posthuman Project” to screen Saturday at Comic-Con!
Friday, July 25, 2014
“The Posthuman Project” is going to Comic-Con!
The teen superhero film was written by Speeding Bullet co-owner Matthew Price with former “Supergirl” writer (and former Speeding Bullet employee) Sterling Gates; the film stars Kyle Whalen, Collin Place, Lindsay Sawyer, Josh Bonzie, Alex Harris, Rett Terrell and Jason Leyva. Kyle Roberts is the director of the film as well as the VFX supervisor and editor.
Gates, Roberts, Bonzie, Terrell and Place are joining producers Wendy Parker and Sha’ree Green in San Diego for a screening as part of the Independent Film Festival at Comic-Con International.
It’s been a whirlwind to see all the press and attention the film has gotten since being named “Best Oklahoma Film” at deadCenter in Oklahoma City a month ago.
This week, the film was reviewed by Ain’t It Cool News and featured by Newsarama and the Los Angeles Times. In addition, the comic-book prequel, which is for sale at Speeding Bullet Comics, can now also be ordered online. The prequel comic was written by Gates and Price, and drawn by Oklahoma comic-book artist Mario Wytch.
Fans can see the film at Comic-Con for free at 11:35 a.m. Saturday at the Marriott Marquis & Marina. Fans in Oklahoma will have chances to see the film again soon as well: the film will be screened as part of FLY Film Festival in Enid and the Red Dirt International Film Festival in Stillwater. The film is in many ways our love letter to Oklahoma; with a cast and crew comprised of mostly Oklahomans or former Oklahomans, the film is steeped in love for the state. While Pellion City in the film is fictional, our Posthumans and their friends will likely seem familiar to anyone who attended high school in the state.
More info on the film is available at the web site and Facebook page.

Spider-Man 2099 is back!
Wednesday, July 9, 2014
It’s an all-new series from the pages of Amazing Spider-Man!
The book you have been demanding for months finally hits the stands!
SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1
Miguel O’Hara is Spider-Man in the year 2099 but he’s currently stuck in the year 2014. He was stranded here by his father who is the head of an evil corporation called Alchemax in 2099.
But in 2014, Alchemax has just been formed and Miguel has a chance to stop its corruption before it starts!
You’d think being a man out of time would make you a man without enemies, but Spider-Man 2099 is about to discover that he’s not the only one hoping for a better tomorrow, one that might be ensured by The Adjustor eliminating Miguel from the time stream altogether!
Join comics legend (and Spider-Man 2099 creator) Peter David and breakthrough artist Will Sliney (Superior Spider-Man Team-up) for the most adventure you’ll find in a book this side of the twenty second century!

Rocket Raccoon gets his own #1!
Wednesday, July 2, 2014
Speeding is determined to get you ready for the next major comic book blockbuster this summer - Guardians of the Galaxy!
And this week we have three brand spankin’ new Guardians titles for you to devour before the film comes out! Starting with…
ROCKET RACCOON #1
It’s an all-new, in-continuity series! As defenders of the cosmos go, Rocket Raccoon has faced his fair share of galactic battles.
He’s been a hero to the weak, a champion of good, a protector of the innocent, a heartthrob to the many intergalactic female species and now - a raccoon on the run?! (I’m sorry, I’m sorry, a “formidable-and-expert-Guardian” on the run. Rocket is NOT a raccoon, okay?)
Rocket’s high-flying life of adventure and heroism may soon be a thing of the past when he becomes a wanted man - and the authorities are not the only one on his TAIL! (We’ll definitely be overusing that pun!)
Superstar creator Skottie Young brings his A-game as writer and artist on the series we’ve been waiting decades for. Because let’s be real, this is the only Guardian of the Galaxy you actually care about. Am I right?
