Recently DC has arguably gone through the ringer for sexualizing the character of Harley Quinn. Whether it was the new costume in Suicide Squad, where Harleen Quinzel shed her full body suit for a far more revealing and barely tied corset and short shorts, or the recent overly dramatized art contest, Harley has been admittedly given a lot more of a sexualized presence in the comics community. Some might point to her nurse outfit in the video game Batman: Arkham Asylum as being the starting point of this. Other might point fingers at DC Editorial, Marketing, Artists, or even fans More >
Dark Horse has always produced some wonderful licensed series tie-ins from comics to art books to even models. Recently, one of my favorite of these releases was the Avatar: The Last Airbender and Avatar: The Legend of Korra art books. Done in a beautiful oversized hardcover, these books provided a great behind the scenes look at the series with never before seen art and commentary from the crew that created such a wonderful cartoon. But now Dark Horse has obtained the right to publish another, similar style art book based on another very popular cartoon: Venture Bros!

A few years ago many public domain superheroes returned to comics at Dynamite Entertainment in Project Super Powers, a comic series and movement heavily aided by the talented Alex Ross. The series started out strong and eventually spun into multiple mini-series and on-going series focusing on the various comic characters in solo adventures. As with many Dynamite books, the comics all featured wonderful covers by top comic artists and were generally quite enjoyable reads. But eventually sales faded and the books all ended. So what could bring back the Super Powers universe and make it really stick? Why the same More >

Created by Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett, Tank Girl started in a Fanzine as an ad with the simple caption “She’ll break your back and your balls!” and ended up in the debut issue of Deadline magazine in her own strip in 1988. The strip continued to have a spot in the mag until it’s end in 1995. This trash talking, shoot first–never mind the questions, nose picking, vulgar wild child developed a More >

With just over 3 months until How To Train Your Dragon makes it back to the big screen for its long awaited sequel, fans are clamoring for any more footage they can get of everyone’s favorite dragon riders.

Right on the heels of this weekend’s spectacular Walking Dead Season Finale, Image Comics and DC Comics announced a major company crossover, Batman and The Walking Dead! In the vein of Marvel’s Invincible/Spider-man crossover in Marvel Team-Up #14, Robert Kirkman will be writing a major crossover mini-series wherein Batman must go up against zombies in Gotham City. We first saw a hint of this with the above teaser at this weekend’s Emerald City Comic Con, but editors and creators on panel kept their lips tight (albeit smiling) about what it meant. Now we know and I don’t think fans could More >
