We can all agree that things would be a whole lot better if there were more Magical Girl elements in our day-to-day lives, right? I mean, yeah, you'd probably spend a lot of time being lectured about the power of love and justice when you were just trying to get a cup of coffee, and those extensive transformation sequences are probably going to make you late for work at least twice a week, but that's a small price to pay for a better, more glitter-streaked world.
At least one major corporation agrees with me, too. In honor of Anime Festival Asia, Microsoft released a video introducingInori Aizawa, an anime magical girl personification of the Internet Explorer web browser. You did not hallucinate anything in that last sentence. Check below for the video, which is actually pretty awesome.
Agents of SHIELD returned from a week off last night with a new episode that finally put the focus on one of its least developed characters. Obviously we're grading on a curve, there.
This being the sixth episode, I feel like I ought to now have a decent grasp on what drives all six of the show's main characters. Even with this episode, which puts the spotlight on Gemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), I still feel like I'm in the company of strangers. Spoilers follow.
In traditional folklore, the doppelgänger (from the German, meaning “double-goer”) is a person's spectral double, which, when seen, is a portent of death. In superhero comics and other genre literature, the evil twin or doppelgänger has been a common plot element since man could grow a goatee. Such evil doubles have returned to the spotlight recently due to the Crime Syndicate's debut in the New 52 as part of the Forever Evil storyline. But while many superhero fans know Bizarro, Sinestro, or Venom, here are ten lesser known evil twins/counterparts/doppelgängers.
Seven years since the last new episode of Invader Zim broadcast on Nickelodeon, fans of the enduringly popular sci-fi comedy have finally got what they asked for: new Zim animation from creator Jhonen Vasquez.
Well, not really. Barely. Hardly. It really depends on how liberally you wish to define "animation." If it can mean "terribly drawn cutouts manipulated by someone's hands in front of an iPhone for a few seconds," then Zim fans are in luck.
We're fast approaching the end of Marvel's sprawling space war/alien invasion crossover event Infinity, with one more issue to come. If you thought the story's two main threads -- the war against the Builder armada on the one hand and Thanos's invasion of Earth on the other -- were going to neatly come together, well... you may be disappointed. They are in the same comic, however.
The early ’90s were spoiled for choice when it came to comic book adaptations. Not only was Batman: The Animated Series on the air, but X-Men led Marvel’s push to get on the small screen, diving right into the often convoluted continuity of everyone’s favorite mutants, luring in a generation of fans, and paving the way for cartoons to follow. That’s why we’ve set out to review every single episode of the ’90s X-Men animatedseries. This week: "A Rogue's Tale," in which Rogue's origin explains everything but her dubious hair choices.
Welcome to the latest episode of ComicsAlliance Presents "Kate or Die," a series of exclusive comic strips created by one of our longtime favorite webcomics cartoonists, Kate Leth! In this episode, Kate takes on a new workplace hazard that creators Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky have introduced to comics shop employees.
Season four of The Walking Dead, AMC’s television adaptation of the Eisner-winning Image Comics series created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore and drawn by Charlie Adlard, is underway. While the survivors grapple with the apocalypse and each other, ComicsAlliance’s John Parker will be following along all season to see who lives, who dies, and who gets stomped into a pile of meat.
Last week: the flu continued to wreak havoc in the prison, an away team went on a quest for antibiotics, and Carol proved that she's willing to do whatever it takes to keep her people safe. Also, George Romero took a giant, steaming dump on Robert Kirkman's childhood dreams. This week, Rick and Carol go for a drive, everybody is consumed with something, and there's a lot of talking. It's pretty emo.
The CW’s superhero series Arrow re-imagines Green Arrow for a TV audience as a tough, often ruthless vigilante bent on setting things right in his home of Starling City by punishing the wicked. ComicsAlliance’s Matt Wilson will be following along to see how he fares.
This week, several characters deal with personal demons, several characters seem to be stereotypes and one major bad guy makes a play.
Halloween is here at last, and at ComicsAlliance, that means we're gearing up for a night of costumes! It’s the one time of year when even people like me who could never cut it in our Best Cosplay Ever feature can drop by the local department store and walk out with the ability to dress up as our favorite characters.
But is that really a good thing? I have my doubts, which is why I’ve spent every day in October taking on the store-bought costumes inspired by our favorite things. Today, I'm diving into store-bought masks and their tendency to lean towards ABSOLUTE HORROR.
