You know what's hilarious? People who argue that their racist, sexist, and homophobic views are "free speech" and should totally be tolerated, only to whine and complain when someone expresses an actual opinion (racism, sexism, and homophobia are not defensible "opinions," they are hatred) they don't like. Suddenly, it's okay to be offended. So long as you're not the member of an actually marginalized group.Read More

One of the tragic events that made 2016 a crap sandwich of a year was the shooting at Pulse Nightclub, an LGBTQIA club in Orlando, FL. IDW and DC Comics joined forces to create a comics anthology called Love Is Love, which contains work from a bunch of our favorite comics creators, and the proceeds of which will benefit the survivors of the Pulse shooting and victims' families. Now, Archie Comics is the latest comics publisher to join the effort with a heartbreaking Kevin Keller story.Read More

I'm not gonna miss Sophie Campbell's artwork at all! I'M FINE!

Artist Sophie Campbell's pencils have so much infectious joy and life in them that she was the perfect choice for Jem and the Holograms, and her work was a huge part of the draw. Sadly, Campbell's time with the Holograms is at an endRead More

Badges? Where we're going, we don't need badges...
It's amazing what a Delorean makes possible. Apparently, the folks at IDW got their hands on one and managed to time-travel to the end of San Diego Comic-Con 2016, where a guy named Biff appeared with a trade paperback of their next best-selling property. Not wanting to mess with any timelines, IDW would now like to announce that they will now indeed be doing a Back to the Future comic!Read More
