Season four of The Walking Dead, AMC’s television adaptation of the Eisner Award-winning Image Comics series launched by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore and now drawn by Charlie Adlard, is well into its second half, and the despair has been turned up to eleven. ComicsAlliance’s John Parker is following along to see who lives, who dies, and who appears for one scene.

It’s all smiles on The Walking Dead this week, as lovers reunite, nerds run the world, and Daryl learns a fun new game. That’s okay. After last week’s soul-shearing horror, we needed a break.

Kansas City's Planet Comicon has steadily grown into what may be the biggest comics and pop culture convention in the Midwest. After spending several years in the Overland Park Convention Center, a mid-sized facility in a suburb of Kansas City, last year Planet Comicon moved to Bartle Hall, a much bigger facility in the heart of downtown. This year, the convention doubled in floorspace, drew cosplayers likes flies to vinegar, and brought in a litany of television and pop culture stars, including legendary rapper Darryl "DMC" McDaniels, pretty much the entire cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the puffy one himself, Sir William Freaking Shatner.

But this site is called ComicsAlliance, and what we really care about are the comics and the creators who make them. Click onwards for a sometimes-blurry Blackberry camera gallery of guests, friends, and artist alley residents of one of the fastest-growing cons in the country.

Season four of The Walking Dead, AMC’s television adaptation of the Eisner Award-winning Image Comics series launched by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore and now drawn by Charlie Adlard, is well into its second half, and the despair has been turned up to eleven. ComicsAlliance’s John Parker is back again to see who lives, who dies, and oh my god the horror.

This week on The Walking Dead: nothing. Nothing happens. Carol and Tyreese and all three kids just have a nice, chilled-out episode where they point out shapes in the clouds and stuff. Literally nothing at all happens, so we can talk about something else now. Something pleasant and uplifting, like Darfur, or terminal cancer.

As the few remaining survivors continue to fend off the constant threats that relentlessly surround them, a seemingly simple idea drives them to complete an unlikely mission that promises to inspire everyone involved in the operation. That’s what my cable guide says, anyway.

‘The Punisher’ #1: Frankie Goes To Hollywood [Review]

Pun1

Shortly after Greg Rucka was informed that he would no longer be continuing his absorbing run on The Punisher, he gave a scathing interview to Mark Millar's CLiNT magazine, in which he lamented the "Hollywoodization of the two main companies." In the case of Marvel's number one sociopath, that statement might turn out to be eerily accurate. The All-New Marvel NOW Punisher series from writer Nathan Edmondson and artist Mitch Gerads relocates Frank Castle from the grimy streets and cluttered skylines of New York City to balmy, colon-cleansed Los Angeles. Does the setting make for an interesting new beginning for the Punisher, or is it bad location scouting?

A Recap of Every ‘Serenity’ Comic (So Far)

Serenity 1

Though Buffy has legions of fans, and The Avengers is the third-highest-grossing movie of all time, many would argue that Joss Whedon’s greatest contribution to nerd culture is the Serenity universe. A moving sci-fi/western with equal parts darkness, humor, and heart, even cancellation couldn’t kill it. After the Serenity movie finished up the tale that Firefly never got a chance to finish, Dark Horse started sporadically publishing comics to bridge the gap, and loyal Browncoats have been lapping them up ever since. Now a new mini-series will be picking up the story after the movie, the six-issue Leaves on the Wind by Zack Whedon and Georges Jeanty, and it’s looking like this will be the last Serenity comic with a Whedon in the writer’s credit for quite some time. With that in mind, here’s a look at all the Serenity comics so far, how they fit into the timeline, and the leftover secrets from Firefly that they reveal. Fair warning: if you’ve only seen Firefly and the movie, this article will spoil your face off. And if you’ve never even seen Firefly, a) why are you even bothering with this article and b) for Christ’s sake go watch it right now!
