Two comic book series started this week that blew me away, not just with their premise and writing, but with the intelligent and thoughtful way they depicted their teenage protagonists. They were Outpost Zero and She Could Fly and I highly recommend both.
It’s a beautiful spring morning, which means it’s a great time to go read some comics outside! Come on, you know you want to!
Today’s sales aren’t that shocking if you’ve been paying attention. So be prepared to be shocked!
Good morning and welcome to the biggest sink of your time and money that you’ll see anywhere on Kinja today. Yes, it’s time to find out what comics are on sale digitally this weekend!
It’s that time of the week- time for cheap comics. There’s lots of great comics sales this weekend, so let’s just jump right into it.
Whatever happened to Brawl talking about comics on sale all the time? I don’t know, I think he got busy. Oh well, I hope he brings it back someday.
The current crop of comic books are wide and varied. Readers are basically spoiled for choice: if they don’t like Marvel and DC, there’s also Dark Horse, Image, Vertigo, Valiant, IDW, and more. So let’s take a look at some current comic books that you could (and probably should) be reading.
There have been two recent Image comics that have dealt with a group of teenagers in typical “coming of age” type stories, often homaging back to the ‘80s teen movies done by Rob Reiner and Stephen Speilberg. However, each book appears to be taking a different approach and it’s interesting to compare and contrast…
There are two types of Astro City stories: multi-issue story-arcs and single issue stand-alones. And while the story-arcs are often great, the stand-alones are where Astro City really shines. Astro City: Private Lives collects four of these stand-alone stories, each of which is excellent on their own.
Usually I can tell if I’m going to enjoy a comic book series by the end of the first issue. Black Science is an exception to that. I actually felt the first issue was pretty mediocre (which was a disappointment to me because I’m a big fan of writer Rick Remender). However, with last week’s NYCC sale on the majority of…
Greetings all and happy Friday! I hope the day is going awesome for y’all! Let’s just jump right in.
Good morning everyone! Hope weekends are off to a good start! There’s a lot to cover this week, so let’s get to it!
This month Phonogram by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie makes its long awaited return. Fans of this urban fantasy, where music is magic, have been waiting for this for the last five years and it’s finally here. But just what is it about this comic - only thirteen issues before now - that inspires such excitement?
Last night writer Nick Spencer shared that the first volume of his Image Comics series Morning Glories is free for a limited time. It’s the perfect opportunity to jump aboard one of the BEST creator owned series on the stands today.
Good morning all! Happy Monday, blah blah blah. :-)
Holy SDCC Batman! It’s like every publisher wants cheap wares available for the geek crowd this weekend! I wonder why...
Hey everybody! I’m ba-ack! After a nice, long, job-search mandated break in this column, I’m back to let you know what’s going on with comic sales across the interwebs!
Deadline is reporting that Kieron Gillen’s and Jamie McKelvie’s comic book The Wicked + The Divine has been optioned for television by Universal TV, to be produced by Milkfed Criminal Masterminds, the company owned by Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick.
Every ninety years twelve gods will take human form and live on Earth for no more than two years, an event called the Recurrance. What happens next is the story of my favorite Image Comics series- maybe by favorite comic book, period- in the past ten years- The Wicked + The Divine.
First I thought one sale was the big one to get excited about. Then I saw another equally exciting sale. AND THEN EVERYTHING ELSE IS GREAT TOO!!! It’s digital comics heaven today!!!
