Give ‘Em Elle: Classic Comics to Help You Escape the World

elle10_featured

Things are messed up right now, so let’s talk about comfort comics. Comics as escapism. There are a lot of current and recent comics that could work for this — All-Star Superman, Lumberjanes, and Squirrel Girl come to mind — but I want to go back a little farther.

Because here’s the cool thing about comics: They all used to be for kids. Which means that a lot of the classic comics, the influential ones that made the medium what it is, are also escapist fun. So when you want to read something that’s going to let you forget your problems and get lost in fantasy, you can also read something that will help you become well versed in comics canon. This is literally how I became who I am today.

Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases for June 29 2016

bce629

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, “Which comic books should I be reading?” or, “I’m new to comics, what’s a good place to start?” The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.

betver ytyk

Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with over 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in comics in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!

This week we're taking a look at Riverdale's best friends and bitterest rivals, Betty and Veronica!

In this video, we explore the history of Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge, from the real life humans who inspired them to their various family members to how at various times each of them has been a magically foretold slayer of vampires.

Cheryl Blossom Gets A Pet Monkey In ‘B&V Friends’ #249, How Are We Even Talking About Other Comics Right Now?

B&V FRIENDS COMICS ANNUAL #249

If you were to ask me about my favorite Archie Comics characters, we'd probably spend about an hour where I talked non-stop about how great Jughead is, those amazing stories about Cricket O'Dell (the girl who can literally smell money), and I'd probably eventually get around to mentioning the short-lived breakdancers from the '90s, Claude and Raoul, who occasionally showed up to give Archie the wisdom they learned on the streets. Rest assured, however, that there would be plenty of discussion about Cheryl Blossom in there, too.

If, however, you asked me how to make Cheryl better, then I think I'd only have one suggestion: Give her a pet monkey. And now, in the classic-style stories still leading each installment of Archie's line of digests, that's actually happening. Check out a preview!

Who Will Answer the Call in Sonic the Hedgehog #283 [Preview]

Archie
Archie

One day, Sonic the Hedgehog, Tails, Amy, Sally, Knuckles and the rest of the gang are going to have a nice vacation. There won't be any more Eggman troubles to deal with, and the world will finally be at peace. Nothing but clear skies, chill music, high fives, and frosty beverages for everyone. Unfortunately for them, that day has not yet arrived, and the troubles continue to mount for the Freedom Fighters. It's nice to think that eventually things will work out for the heroes in this universe. That just hasn't been the case as of late.

But perhaps that day is closer than we thought. In Sonic the Hedgehog #283, the Freedom Fighters finally have everything they need to bring some hope into the world. With Eggman still lurking in the shadows however, can anything possibly go as planned. Guess it depends on how many of the world's heroes come to Sonic's aid when he needs them the most.

Unlimited Extras: What’s Coming To Comixology Unlimited in Late June?

Mage: The Hero Discovered, Matt Wagner

It was only last month that Comixology launched Comixology Unlimited, a new subscription-base service with a Netflix-style model that gives access to a library of titles to read for a flat monthly fee.

Kevin-Featured

It wasn't that long ago that Archie Comics made headlines with the introduction of Kevin Keller, the first out gay character to go to Riverdale High; he quickly became a hit with fans, and he was one of the first signs that Archie as a publisher was willing to shake up what people thought they knew about the company. Since then Kevin has become a mainstay of the Archie books and has proven to be a successful spinoff character in his own right. He'll even appear in the cast of the upcoming TV show Riverdale
This week, Archie Comics launches Life With Kevin, a new digital first series starring an adult Kevin Keller living away from Riverdale, chasing his dreams in the big city.
