Amazon’s running a Marvel digital comic sale that’s bigger than any Avengers movie today, with literally thousands of titles marked down to $5 or less. You’ll find everything from the Guardians of the Galaxy to Darth Vader to Deadpool to Captain America in there, and every hero in between, so there’s never been a…
Violet was the original mean girl of the Peanuts gang. She was even the first character to call Charlie Brown a blockhead. Her main weapon was social exclusion: “I’m having a party, and YOU’RE not invited!” She was, on the surface, an unrepentant bully and one of the least likable characters in Charles Schulz’s strip.…
Tomorrow, May 6, is basically comic book fan Christmas—because it’s Free Comic Book Day, the annual celebration across comic stores the world over to revel in the comics we love (and get free ones, too). As ever, there are tons on offer for FCBD this year, so here’s our picks for the ones you should look out for.
If The Hallway Scene rekindled your Darth Vader love affair, all four volumes of his new comic series are on sale on Kindle today. The first three volumes will only set you back $5 each, while the fourth is marked down to $10. Once you purchase, you’ll be able to read them on basically any device via Comixology.
When Amazon and Comixology first announced Unlimited last year, two of the biggest comics publishers around were conspicuously absent from the list of comics available in the read-what-you-want service: Marvel and DC. But today, one of them has finally gotten on board.
I was in a “catch up on a bunch of comics I’ve missed” mood over the weekend, so I set aside time for some reading. One of the books I picked up, Corey Lewis’ Sun Bakery, had a very nice surprise inside.
There’s nothing like reading a good comic or 16 on a warm summer’s day. I mean, why do all that stuff like going outside when there are so many good new comics series coming out? Beat the heat over the summer with a few of our recommendations for all the new series you should check out in the next few months.
More Saga in any form is a good thing in our books, and the upcoming second volume of Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ seminal comic series, due out next week, is no exception. To celebrate, we’ve got an exclusive look at some of the beautiful art created for the new collection, by some of the best artists in…
On December 21, 2016, Jacqueline Craig, a black woman living in Fort Worth, Texas, called 911 to report that a white, male neighbor was choking her seven-year-old son, allegedly in retaliation for the child littering on his lawn.
After paying money I will never get back for the disappointment that is 2017's Ghost in the Shell, I realized that it hadn’t scratched my itch for a Tokyo-esque sci-fi tech opera. It delivered, mostly, on the dystopian vision of Tokyo that Io9's Evan Narcisse called “futureshock design porn.” But while its setting…
Musician Jonathan Coulton has debuted the first video for his upcoming album, Solid State. It’s a glorious send-up of classic text adventure video games, as well as a cautionary tale against the encroaching surveillance state. As a bonus, the album has its own graphic novel.
Chip Zdarsky, Kris Anka, and Matthew Wilson’s Star-Lord comic, which released its third issue this week, is great so far. It’s telling a fun tale of Peter Quill making his way while stuck on Earth without his fellow Guardians of the Galaxy around. But we’re not here to talk about that. We’re here to talk about abs.
He’s barely been in office for a month, but already Donald Trump has given the world a fearsome amount of wild, delirious quotes. They’re sentences that not even the best satirical writer could come up with—and weirdly enough, they make for uncomfortably believable quotes for Marvel’s premiere fascist supervillain.
The Lego Batman Movie opens this week, bringing with it a horde of Lego sets based on that wonderfully goofy version of the Dark Knight. Crawling to the top of the pile as only a nocturnal winged mammal could is The Scuttler.
Not only does Lego Batman get his own movie today, he’s also the star of Lego Dimensions’ The Lego Batman Movie story pack. The pack features a six-level adventure based on the feature film and a new adventure world to explore. It’s in stores today.
Three years ago, Representative John Lewis published the first book in a three-part graphic novel series about his experience as a leader for the Civil Rights Movement. Today, March is one of the biggest books in the country, selling out on Amazon overnight. And it’s all because the next president decided to pick a…
Mere days before 2016 comes to a close, Marvel’s “summer” event series Civil War II has released its last issue. But Civil War II wasn’t going to go down without at least adding a few more twists to the future of the Marvel Universe... and oh boy, did it add some.
Harry Potter and the gang have come together to celebrate Dumbledore’s pride in the series’ official comic book debut, and author J.K. Rowling herself has given the inclusion her stamp of approval.
