  1. Comixology Announces DRM Free Digital Comics Downloads: You Can Really Own Your Comics Now

    Time to buy a new external hard drive.

    I love digital comics for what they do for my ability to read back issues, try out new series, and get caught up on old. But there's always that little consumer worry in the back of my head: what I'm trading for this convenience is that technically I'm renting those comics, not buying them. No more, says Comixology. Kinda.

  3. IDW To Launch Orphan Black Comics Series in 2015

    Clone Club, assemble!

    Jill's currently en route to San Diego Comic-Con, but I think I just heard her let out a screech from all the way back in New York. IDW is doing Orphan Black comics, for launch in early 2015! The show "was met with an enormous amount of enthusiasm at last year’s Comic-Con," explains John Young, Managing Director at Orphan Black's Temple Street Productions, "which really inspired us to give back to fans of the show through a medium so vital to the science fiction world."

  6. A Delicate Balance: Why You Should Read Ai Yazawa’s Nana

    Morgana reviews Nana!

    It's hard to write about Nana without feeling as though I'm not doing it justice; this is more than a mere two-best-girlfriends-embroiled-in-romance story. The Nanas really exemplify a beautiful duality, the difficulty between balancing real love and a passionate career. And beyond that, the story is very realistic, with little room for romantic tropes or expected outcomes.

  7. The Mary Sue Exclusive Interview: Lucy Knisley On Her New Graphic Novel, Something New

    In which weddings are weird. And awesome. But mostly super weird.

    Lucy Knisley's new graphic novel, Something New (which we exclusively announced earlier this week), is coming soon from First Second Books, and we're so excited about it. Something New follows Knisley as she attempts to plan a wedding - a process this geeky foodie finds entirely alienating. Lucy sat down to chat with The Mary Sue's Weekend Editor Sam Maggs about her wedding, the graphic novel, cupcake dresses, and Darth Vader.

  8. We Need All Voices in Comics (Or I Started the #FireRickRemender Hashtag and I’m Only Kind of Sorry About It)

    Republished with permission.

    Wednesday evening, following my first read of Rick Remender’s Captain America #22, I posted a series of entries to my blog reiterating my distaste for his work, and my renewed (and long-held) belief that he should no longer be writing it. I am genuinely sorry for any personal affront my actions may have caused. What I am not sorry for is everything that came afterward.
