Great Comics That Never Happened

Over the years, ComicsAlliance has run many covers for Great Comics That Never Happened. We've collected all of these covers into one epic gallery.

Watch the Trailer For Jerry Frissen And Peter Snejbjerg’s ‘World War X’

WWX00

You know, just once it might be nice for humanity to awaken an ancient and forgotten threat to the planet that has mellowed out in the years that it's been sealed away, and doesn't want to destroy the planet when it emerges from its eternal slumber. I mean, yes, that would probably not give us a very entertaining story, what with the lack of conflict, but who wouldn't want to see elder unknowable horror from the stars maybe getting a cupcake or catching up on Netflix instead of immediately trying to destroy us for the hubris of our species?

Alas, that is not the case for the characters in Jerry Frissen and Peter Snejbjerg's World War X, in which a set of ancient artifacts unleash monsters poised to annihilate the entire human race in a war that we are clearly not ready for. The Netflix queue, it seems, will remain unwatched.

Babs Tarr And Joy Ang Cover ‘Gotham Academy #6′ And ‘Gotham Academy: Endgame’

GA00

At this point, I'm not sure how Gotham Academy could get better. I mean, it's already exactly what I have always wanted in my life but never knew I could get, a teen drama with mysteries and secret passages, where Batman occasionally shows up and obscure villains from the TV show are running the library. That's a level of perfection that I could've only dreamt of a year ago.

But if I had to make a suggestion for how it might be better, I'd probably suggest getting Babs Tarr, the ComicsAlliance-favorite artist of Batgirl, to do a cover, or maybe getting Adventure Time designer Joy Ang to take a crack at the characters, or maybe have everyone spend an issue talking about how terrifying the Joker is. These are all things that are happening. We are living in a magical time.

Exclusive Preview: ‘Marceline Gone Adrift’ #3: Marceline Vs. Record Execs

marceline-feat

One of the most beloved Adventure Time characters, Marceline, is in the midst of a miniseries from KaBoom titled Marceline Gone Adrift, by Meredith Gran and Carey Pietsch, and ComicsAlliance has the exclusive preview for issue #3. In the story so far, everyone's favorite rocker demon/vampire went on a rampage throughout Ooo, so Princess Bubblegum stripped her of her powers and sent her drifting off into space. This is probably not so great for their relationship, but Princess Bubblegum does feel really, really bad about it.

Marvel Reveals the Battleboard (And Hints There Are Maybe Nine Books Left to Announce?)

BATTLEBOARD-feat

Not to be outdone by DC's Multiversity map --- first spotted at last year's San Diego Comic-Con and since made available through retailers --- Marvel is releasing its own physical, foldable, pin-up-on-your-wall-able map of its multiverse. Of course, this multiverse is squished together into one bite-sized nugget (if you're Galactus) for Secret Wars.

The Battleboard doesn't actually tell us anything we don't already know; it's the same map we've seen before, and the covers for all the books Marvel has already announced, including the newly announced Guardians of Knowhere, a Guardians of the Galaxy continuation from Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Deodato. But the Battleboard does tell us what we don't already know --- known unknowns, if you will --- with nine cover slots marked as 'Classified'. So there are definitely nine more Secret Wars books to be announced, and maybe only nine more?

Best Art Ever (This Week): Kamen Rider, Nexus, Batman ’89, Man Of Steel, Battle of the Planets and More

Untitled-1

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

Ask Chris #235: The Case Against A Shared Universe

Art by Kyle Baker, Ask Chris art by Erica Henderson

Q: What are the arguments against a shared universe? Like, would Hawkman be tolerable if he wasn't standing next to Superman? -- @Dan_Toland

A: I gotta say, I am probably the last person on the face of the planet that you should be coming to with this question. Not only do I love the concept of a shared universe in general, but I love it specifically in how it's evolved to become a defining feature of superhero comics, to the point where it's actually as much a part of what I think of when I hear the word "superhero" as powers and costumes.

On the other hand, I am also a dude who has never passed up an opportunity to make fun of Hawkman, so allow me to answer that part of your question first: No. Nothing will ever make Hawkman tolerable. Hawkman is the worst.

Jimmy Fallon Wins A Drinking Contest With Wolverine And Thor; We Live In The Worst Of All Possible Worlds

hqdefault1

Jimmy Fallon --- late night talk show host and guy who definitely hogs the microphone at karaoke and probably jumps up to "duet" with people who weren't actually looking to sing a duet right now, thanks, Jimmy --- likes to play party games and parlor games on his Tonight Show show. On last night's Tonight Show show he played a game of musical chairs with three important additions; beer, Thor, and Wolverine. And no chairs.

‘I’m Drawing Archie Fighting A Freakin’ Predator’: Fernando Ruiz Talks ‘Archie Vs Predator’

AVP00

Even though it was announced months ago, I'm still having a hard time believing that we live in a magical world where Alex de Campi and Fernando Ruiz's Archie Vs Predator is a real thing that is happening. Even in a time when the company's most critically successful book is a moody supernatural horror story where the entire cast is about two seconds away from being murdered by zombies, Archie Vs Predator still seems like a beautiful, beautiful dream.

That's why, in order to confirm that this is in fact happening, I spoke to Ruiz about what it's like to send the Predator to Riverdale, and how it compares to drawing Betty riding a dragon.
