Dark Horse Comics is bringing back its Alien comics franchise in a big way this year with a set of four mini-series set immediately after the most recent movie, Prometheus. The company has revealed the names of the four series writers: Aliens will be by Chris Roberson, Predators will be written by Joshua Williamson, Paul Tobin will write the Prometheus series, and Aliens vs. Predator will be by Christopher Sebela.

The company's been teasing a "fifth writer" on the franchise, and she's actually holding down the position you might call head writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick. DeConnick will be writing a double-sized "wrap-up" issue to close out the initial run of books, and she oversaw a lot of the goings-on in the writers' room as the series were being put together. We chatted with her by phone to find out how that experience was different from other comics writing jobs, and just what readers can expect from the first full-on Aliens/Predator/Prometheus comics crossover.

The rollout of official photos of characters from the new Fox series Gotham continues as actor Ben McKenzie tweeted fans' first look at series star Jim Gordon.

While it appeared Donal Logue's Harvey Bullock will have a little more facial hair than the comics version, Gordon will notably have less. That's right: McKenzie won't be rocking Gordon's signature mustache in the role. He honestly looks a little distraught about it, but hey, Batman '66 Gordon didn't have a mustache, did he? And he came out OK. Chin up, fella.
