Every so often, you come across a comic that throws you for the sort of loop that makes you pause a few pages in and think, “I wasn’t at all prepared for how damned good this is.” Atari and Dynamite’s new Centipede series, based on the classic 1980s video game, is definitely one of those comics.
Hundreds of thousands of people think that Tom King is a good writer. He’s won some of the comic book medium’s most prestigious awards for work like The Omega Men, Vision, and Sheriff of Babylon. But he’s still nervous about his work.
It’s been nearly three years since The Legend of Korra left our TV screens, ending with Korra getting her happy ending, Asami by her side.

Remember that time Sonic cried because changes to the timeline caused his children to never be born? He had previously been king of the planet, but in the new timeline, Shadow the Hedgehog was actually king and had married Sonic’s longtime love interest, Princess Sally (Sonic the Hedgehog #166)?
The world of comics has been without giant, burly scifi soldiers carving bloody messes into alien hordes with their chainsaw guns for far too long since Wildstorm’s Gears of War comic came to an end in 2012. But good news for COG fans: the series is making a triumphant, gory return thanks to IDW.
Between a series cryptic teaser images and an even more difficult to parse prelude comic, we knew that DC’s upcoming Dark Nights: Metal series was going to involve dark, alternate reality versions of the Justice League.

There have always been female fans of comics, even if the business hasn’t played to that audience very faithfully. But for a brief moment, teenage girls and young women were one of the biggest demos in the industry. Specifically, during the 1950s boom in passionate, dramatic, tear-stained romance comics.
Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can. Apparently spiders can reboot their movie franchises twice in 15 years. The web-head made his feature debut in the Marvel cinematic universe, and it wasn’t horrible at all. Join Patricia Hernandez and me as we discuss Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Over the decades, many artists have given us their special take on DC’s iconic vigilante. Korean comic artist Kim Jung Gi’s offbeat mech Batman is one of the most unique.
Growing up as a kid who loved comic books, I spent many an afternoon running around the park pretending to be a superhero fighting all manners of evil. Fun as it was, the process of picking out which superhero I wanted to be always stressed me out for one particular reason that still bothers me to this day.

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.…

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.
