It’s going to be interesting to see what transpires when Batman finds out the identity of this particular teen vigilante. This unauthorized Robin will be lucky if getting fired is the only thing that happens to him.
12 years ago, Max Landis wasn’t a Hollywood screenwriter yet. He was just another guy writing fan-fiction about C-list Spidey villain The Shocker. Yeah, the guy who wears a quilted unitard.
Superman: American Alien is a reminder of how great the Man of Steel can be in the hands of people who care.
For more than a decade now, creator Robert Kirkman has been the primary creator of the Walking Dead, partnering with a select few artists to build out the bleak, incredibly successful comics series. Now, two more comics superstars have entered the zombie apocalypse with a beautiful side story that you can read from…
It’s time for the Dark Lord of the Sith’s kill-crazy robots to get their own comics or TV show. Something, anything. They’re just too damn great.
I was waiting a long time for one little exchange between the current versions of Batman and Jim Gordon, because Gotham City’s top police officer gets to show that he’s not a complete dumb-ass.
Monstress is a comic-book series where incredibly messed-up things happen. We’re talking child slavery, lynchings and cannibalism. Thank the poets it’s also got a magical, two-tailed talking cat named Master Ren.
Grant Morrison delivered one of the best Superman stories ever with All-Star Superman. His long run on the Dark Knight infused Batman comics with more energy and heart than they’d seen in years. However, his take on Wonder Woman misses the mark.
Tilda Swinton punching Benedict Cumberbatch’s soul out of his body? Teach me, indeed.
The Fix starts with a great high-concept opening: the march of technology has made reliable, old-school, brute force law-breaking obsolete.

Just like the movie, Michael Peña’s Luis completely steals the show in the currently PlayStation exclusive LEGO Marvel’s Avengers Ant-Man downloadable content.
Marvel’s Star Wars comics have been pretty damn good so far. But the creators on these titles have had it easy: they’ve been working with characters who have been popular and well-loved for decades. The team doing this week’s Poe Dameron comic has a tougher job: keeping the momentum going from one of the biggest…
Marvel’s most important black superhero has evolved a lot over 50 years. The Black Panther has gone from being an under-utilized figure in the background of Avengers group shots to arguably being the most fearsome strategist in the Marvel Universe. His elevation to Marvel’s top tier is a fascinating meta-story.
People hate Superman because he’s an alien. The X-Men get giant robots sicced on them because they’re mutants. Racial prejudice has informed the subtext of loads of storylines in superhero comics.
