"But Like Maybe?"...The First Comic Book Based On An Instagram Account -


But Like Maybe? The First Comic Book Based On An Instagram Account

Comics have been adapted from film, TV, toylines, theme park rides, the lot. But I think this is the first comic book that has been adapted from an Instagram account.

Bliss On Tap is publishing But Like Maybe #1 in August, by Dru Radovich and Arianna Margulis based on her Instagram account of the same name and it’s a…
new comic book about life and stuff, examining the complicated world of selfies, brunch, hangovers, love, rejection, and over-analyzing everything. The first issue follows millennial heroine “BLM” as she obsesses over her love interest “Hot Brad,” while her teddy bear confidant attempts to intercept her crazy-girl antics. The voice of a generation… but like maybe?
The account in question with over 65,000 followers is a single panel cartoon account that has been adapted into a narrative story structure. Available digitally from DriveThruComics right now, it will get a further digital release in June and then appear in print in August.

"Hardcore Akan #1" is a Diamond Comics PREVIEWSworld staff pick of the month!


Staff Picks (June) - Hardcore Akan #1
As far as action movies go, no movie is more jaw-clenchingly extreme than Hardcore Henry. Filmed from the first-person perspective, Hardcore Henry is recognized for its different approach to the genre. That different approach also led to leaving many details a mystery regarding the main antagonist, Akan.
Hardcore Akan #1 winds the clocks back to tell Akan’s story. In this official prequel written by the film’s director, Ilya Naishuller, along with Brian Phillipson and Will Stewart, readers are served an origin story littered with hints towards the overall picture presented in the movie. Akan is fleshed out with detail that did not make it into the final cut, but can also be read without any prior story knowledge. However, if you’ve seen the movie, you’ll be rewarded with additional content.
What really happened on that ill-fated day in Chernobyl, 1986? How did Akan get special abilities, and what led him to become the powerful warlord with an army at his disposal? All is answered in-between the pages of Hardcore Akan #1 from Bliss On Tap.
