This week, Comixology has launched a sale on DC's digital-first line, which means that for half of their usual cover price, you can catch up on rip-roaring retro adventure in books like Bombshells, Wonder Woman '77, and Batman '66, get continuity-free adventures in Adventures of Superman, Sensation Comics, and Legends of the Dark Knight, and --- perhaps most importantly --- finally get the answer to the question of whether Batman could defeat a pro wrestler.
Between having his secret identity revealed, becoming a world-traveling super-spy, getting his secret identity back, and then spending some time partnering up with a villain who claimed to be better than Batman, Dick Grayson has has a busy couple of years. Now it's finally time for him to find some comfort and head back to familiar territory --- namely Blüdhaven, the city across the river from Gotham that was his home in the '90s.
But in Tim Seeley and Marcus To's Nightwing #10, Dick's being introduced to a whole new 'Haven. To find out more, ComicsAlliance spoke to them about why they wanted to get him back to his classic stomping grounds, what it was like to rebuild Blüdhaven from the ground up, and the shocking return of Orca the Whale Woman. Yes, really.
For Sonic's 25th anniversary the good people over at Archie Comics are launching "Genesis of a Hero," a four-part saga with a retro style that hearkens back to the events of the Sega Genesis games. Check out a preview and get a look at the action yourself!
We're looking back at the history of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers with an in-depth guide to the original series and a comparison to its source material. Gosei Sentai Dairanger. Welcome to Ranger Station!
This week, the Angel Grove off-road rally continues --- and so does Biidoro Boodoro!
With almost 300 issues in the core series, Archie's Sonic The Hedgehog stands as the longest-running uninterrupted American monthly comic book that's currently being published. In Hedging Your Bets, I attempt to get up to speed on Sonic the Hedgehog, challenging the odds to hopefully make it all the way to the finish line.
This week, we've got demonic possession, widespread destruction, and then a month off so that Sonic can go compete in the Olympics. Seriously.
This week, we go from Happy Harbor to Santa Prisca on a tour of the DC Universe, and grit our teeth through the advent of Miss Martian's catchphrase. "Welcome To Happy Harbor" was directed by Jay Oliva and written by Kevin Hopps, and originally aired on January 21, 2011. "Drop-Zone" was directed by Christopher Berkeley and written by Andrew R. Robinson, and originally aired on January 28, 2011.
Thanksgiving is just over the horizon, and that means that it's time once again for the annual bout of anxiety about spending time with your relatives. If it gets bad this year, though, maybe you can take a little comfort in knowing that even Supergirl has problems dealing with her family when they come to town .
It's not Superman who's the hassle --- although you really have to think that the conversation about him just dropping her off at an orphanage an hour after she landed on her new home planet had to be awkward, and for better or worse, Argo City's utter cosmic destruction headed off any difficult conversations with her parents well before they could be a real problem. No, it's her conniving older sister Kranna who's so hard to deal with.
Good news, everyone! Your favorite British boy wizard is about to return to comics, and before you move on, please note that every boy wizard is technically someone's favorite, so there is no reason for you to get mad if it's not who you're thinking of.
The sorcerous kid in question this time is the eponymous star of The Journal of Luke Kirby, a strip that ran in the pages of 2000 AD from 1988 to 1995 --- which, as 2000 AD is quick to note, means that he predates both Harry Potter and DC's Tim Hunter.
So remember how a couple weeks ago, I said that Sonic the Hedgehog continuity was so weird that you could pretty much tell me anything about it and I would have no reason to doubt you? Well buckle up, kids, because our friends at Archie just sent over a preview of their next paperback collection of Sonic stories, and it's a weird one. In this particular story, Sonic becomes a werewolf. Er, werehog? Werewolfhog? Listen, it's probably for the best if you just check out the preview below!
We're looking back with an in-depth guide to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, including its source material from Gosei Sentai Dairanger in ComicsAlliance's Ranger Station!
