The Umbrella Academy Is Coming to Netflix, and I Can’t Wait For This Glorious Weirdness and These Female Characters
You might know Gerard Way as a musician dude, but I will always think of him as a comic book guy. Before he was put in charge of the DC imprint, DC Young Animal, he was writing wonderfully creative and off-the-wall comics for Dark Horse like The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys and the always amazing The Umbrella Academy, which is one of my all-time faves. Netflix, who has really leaned into doing weird stuff well, is now adapting Umbrella Academy for TV. Rejoice!Read More

Oh hey, it turns out that Marvel Comics has heard about the massive blowback to the Psych!-Captain-America-was-always-Hydra concept and now they think we should just twiddle our thumbs and trust them. Hmmm.Read More
OK, I mean, I'm exaggerating: there are apparently a couple of Warner Bros. executives who want to keep milking the Watchmen cash cow. But you know who really, really doesn't want to see Watchmen on screen again? Its creator, Alan Moore.Read More
The CW's show Riverdale, a.k.a. the most delicious guilty pleasure currently on TV, has its own comic based in the same world. In the second issue, the gang goes full-on Breakfast Club. We've got the first look at the art and covers—and what Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, and Josie would look like in a John Hughes movie.Read More
Dave, a 23-year-old artist on Tumblr, creates comics that portray the human condition through deceptively simple lines and highly relatable animals. His work has become so popular that people are getting the drawings as tattoos.Read More
We've gotten emails from some of you asking why we haven't yet covered the trailer for the upcoming Charlize Theron action/spy film Atomic Blonde yet. Now that I've seen the trailer, I'm mad at myself for taking so long, as this film looks like it's totally up my alley. To paraphrase a particularly colorful TMS commenter in a recent Things We Saw Today thread, I too was made to feel "funny in my pants" while watching this restricted trailer. I totally feel you.Read More
And it's for a good cause.

FX's Legion might not be the only X-Men show heading toward television.Read More
I don't know what to be more upset about: the fact that Coachella is less about the music these days and more about getting to say you "Went to Coachella," the fact that Beyoncé will be the first woman to headline Coachella in TEN YEARS when she performs at this year's festival, or the fact that Beyoncé has never played at Coachella as a solo act before. But you read that right: Queen Bey will be the first woman to headline the famed

When we talk about things like representation in comics, it's very easy to focus exclusively on what's not there. Equally important, however, is celebrating (and sometimes reminding ourselves!) of what is there and what has been there all along! Powerful black superheroines in comics are not new or news. Rather, they often don't get the coverage or conversation they deserve, despite their long, rich histories. Misty Knight's Uninformed Afro is looking to change that.Read More
