What makes N.C. Wyeth important is that he blends the concepts of impressionism - specifically light sources, color uses, and the emphasis of action and movement over that of portraiture and realism. Wyeth used those ideas to give a movement to his characters that have become the standards for how these stories are told.

Pay attention to his uses of light sources in particular. Everything is exagerrated, with the emphasis on drama and story:

“Comics should be the maximum amount of information in the least amount of panels.” - Will Eisner.

Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona is getting the animated treatment by Feast director

It’s been a good couple of weeks for Noelle Stevenson. Just two weeks after the announcement that her collaborative Boom! Studios comic Lumberjanes was getting a live-action adaptation, now comes word that her Eisner winning solo venture, Nimona, is going to be an animated feature.

THE BLACK BEETLE NOMINATED FOR AN EISNER!!!!!

SO SO EXCITED and proud to announce that my first adventure of THE BLACK BEETLE, NO WAY OUT, has been nominated for an Eisner in the BEST LIMITED SERIES category! :)
http://www.comic-con.org/awards/will-eisner-comic-industry-award-nominees-2014
I am beyond ecstatic for this huge recognition, specially considering how much work I’ve put in my first foray in the industry as full creator (writer/artist/colorist) on something this big. 
Thank you thank you thank you, everyone, for making this possible :)
And special thanks to Lisa, Jim, Mike, Nate, and everyone else who helped me with the Beetle (if you have bought the HC - and have you, right? ;) - you know whom I am talking about).  

I have some tough competition in that category, and bummer that they are all my dear friends - Paul Tobin and Juan Ferreyra’s COLDER, Mike RIchardson and Stan Sakai’s 47 RONIN, Scott SNyder and Sean Murphy’s THE WAKE, and Jeff Lemire’s TRILLIUM - but I hope the Beetle can bring home that mirable trophy :)

And if that wasn’t enough, I have been also nominated for a INKWELL AWARDS in the ALL IN ONE (artist who ink their own pencils) category. The ballots are now available online here https://inkwellawards.justsurvey.me/4f4661444f54 and everyone can vote, so please consider taking a few minutes and cast your vote for my inking on Black Beetle and Afterlife and a bunch of other books I worked on in 2013 :)
Thank you!

Cheers,

FF

We’re delighted to announce that HIGH CRIMES has been nominated for TWO Eisner Awards this year, Best New Series and Best Digital/Webcomic. We couldn’t be prouder of the work that Christopher Sebela and Ibrahim Moustafa have done on the series, and we think the nominations are richly deserved. HIGH CRIMES is just plain awesome, y'all. It’s not quite like anything else out there, in the best way possible. But you don’t have to take OUR word for it. Throughout the voting period, we’re making the first issue available for free on ComiXogy. If you haven’t yet checked out HIGH CRIMES, go read the first issue and see what all the fuss is about. And when you’re finished reading that one, issues 2 through 6 are still on sale for the low, low price of 99 cents per issue! And if you HAVE already read the series, then go tell all of your friends to check it out. Otherwise, what kind of friend are you? Seriously. Confetti and Unicorns! <3 Us
