[Editor’s note: Every Sunday, Robot 6 contributors discuss “The best in comics from the last seven days” — from news and announcements to a great comic that came out to something cool creators or fans have done.]
Dark Horse Comics Associate Editor Jim Gibbons is a seasoned social media user. Typically when Jim posts something on his Tumblr, it is something that already was on my radar or something that (thanks to Jim's post) I put on my radar. A few weeks back, I was considering content that might work best for the Robot 6 Tumblr, when I stumbled upon the idea of somehow tapping into Gibbons' nose for content.
After contacting Gibbons, we arrived upon the idea that happened this past week--allowing the Dark Horse Comics associate editor to be a guest curator at the Robot6 Tumblr.
Gibbons pulled out all the stops during his #GibbonsR6TumblrTakeover, including:
- Two new pages of Victor Santos' Polar that will appear in Dark Horse Presents
- A preview of an Ed Brisson's Murder Book short (called “Hot Shot” featuring art by Brian Level) set to appear in an upcoming Dark Horse Presents crime comics
- Maurizio Rosenzweig sketches for Fred Van Lente's upcoming series Resurrectionists
- A Ramon Villalobos work in progress for Dark Horse Presents
- The story behind the Halloween-influenced Dustin Nguyen cover for Captain Midnight #16
- An Andrew MacLean work in progress for Dark Horse Presents
- A sneak peek at Francesco Francavilla's The Black Beetle: Necrologue #1
It was great to have Gibbons take over the Tumblr for a bit and we hope you find it as delightful a read as we did.
