If I had my way, it'd be September 30th already, and we'd all be watching Luke Cage right now. Sadly, I can't bend the space-time continuum just yet, so we'll have to make do in the meantime with some more hints from Mike Colter, who discussed the Netflix series with Comic Book Resources at the red carpet premiere of Civil War.Read More
Writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Erica Henderson's Jughead reboot is hilarious and surreal, and hasn't shied away from reframing some of Jughead's iconic characteristics for a more modern context.Read More
Squirrel you know it's true.
Hopefully, all of you who read my review of Marvel's Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Vol 1 immediately ran out and got on board the Squirrel Girl train. Doreen Green is one of Marvel's best characters right now, and you need to join in on her adventures immediately! That said, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Vol 2: Squirrel You Know It's True, takes a bit of a dip in storytelling, and is slightly less successful as a collection.Read More
It's hard to imagine a writer who would be a better fit to write Jughead than Chip Zdarsky, and Jughead #1 (out tomorrow!), proves that. After reading the hilarious, surreal, and surprisingly sentimental first issue, we spoke to Zdarsky over email about collaborating with Squirrel Girl artist Erica Henderson, making sense of Jughead's obsessions, and whether or not Howard and Jughead would get along.Read More

Ming Doyle, Erica Henderson and Other Comics Artists Give Us the Genderblended DC Movie Universe We Always Wanted
*make grabby hands*
It began simply, when Ming Doyle posted this fabulous depiction of Sigourney Weaver as Bruce Wayne. But if you're going to give Tumblr an art prompt (draw DC comics characters as played by famous movie stars of a different gender), you better be prepared to give it a glass of milk to go with it. I mean... for the art explosion that happens next.Read More
Yay talented ladies!
Despite the fact that DC Comics and Marvel are slowly, sloooowly geting better when it comes featuring different types of gender, racial, and body diversity in their books, the behind-the-scenes ratio of male to female comic creators leaves something to be desired. So it's cool to see that in March, Marvel will be doing a special variant cover event to highlight their pool of female artists. But is it enough?Read More
