​Everything You Ever Loved About Neil Gaiman's Sandman Comes Back Today

Maybe it was portrayal of the Lord of the Dreaming as a mopey loner, ambling through the universe's subconscious.

2013's Best Graphic Novel Is All About Killing in the Name of God(s)

Don’t let the appealingly cartoony look of Boxers & Saints fool you. Terrible things happen in this graphic novel. Old men get beaten up. Women and children get killed in rather heartless fashion. And, worst of all, the senseless death that happens in the 500-page opus is based on actual events. But, goddamn, is it… » 9/23/13 6:30pm 9/23/13 6:30pm

You Must Watch This Supercut of Hugh Jackman Screaming as Wolverine
