The comics community is certainly no stranger to fans dressing up in costumes to show their love for their favorite characters, but while conventions are dominated by cosplayers who put an incredible amount of time and dedication into their craft, Halloween is for the rest of us lazy slobs. Yes, it's once again that time of year when anyone can walk int

The X-Men Episode Guide 5×10: The Fifth Horseman

X-Men 5x10: The Fifth Horseman

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 animated series.

This week, it's the return of Apocalypse and Fabian Cortez, so if you want to stop reading now, I'll understand.

Comics, Everybody: The History Of Wolverine Explained!

Promo

Spoiler alert: Wolverine is dead. The most unkillable character in the Marvel superhero pantheon finally met his maker in this week's Death Of Wolverine #4 by murderers Charles Soule and Steve McNiven. The development -- which we are naturally very certain is permanent and shan't be reversed in a similarly bombastic fashion in approximately one year's time (or however time works in the Marvel Universe) -- brings to a close decades of Wolverine comics publishing that's seen the ceaselessly popular mutant go through twists and turns that would snap the neck of anyone whose bones weren't bonded with unbreakable metal.

Without divulging the details of his demise for those of you who've yet to read the story, the following is an utterly comprehensive, wholly accurate and otherwise unassailable digest of Wolverine's long history in comics, courtesy of cartoonist Chris Haley with colors by Jordan Gibson. Whether you’re new to Wolverine and curious to learn more about his ridiculous past or you’re a hardcore Marvel nerd looking to Um-Actually this feature into oblivion, you’ll be sure to enjoy this special tribute to he who is the best at what he does... er, did.

‘The Delinquents’ #3 Has One Of The Best Opening Lines Of All Time [Preview]

Del00

Listen, folks: I was already on board for what James Asmus, Fred Van Lente and Kano were doing in the pages of The Delinquents from the moment that I found out it was a superhero team-up about going on a quest for hobo treasure. That is literally the only thing I needed to know before I decided to read it. But then the writers went one better by giving the third issue what may actually be the single best opening line of all time.

Seriously, if you have read a comic that starts out with a better piece of dialogue than "Well first off, what makes you so sure your sugar daddy was behind that ass menagerie?" I would like to read it, and I am not even close to kidding.

ComicsAlliance Vs. The DC Comics Monster Cereal Redesigns

Cereal00

If there's one thing I've learned in a lifetime of reading, selling, making and writing about comics, it's that people who like comic books also tend to have a pretty healthy interest in breakfast foods. That, I assume, is why the people at General Mills decided to spice up their annual revival of the Monster Cereals -- Boo Berry, Franken Berry and the immortal Count Chocula -- with a set of redesigns for their principal characters, courtesy of artists Jim Lee, Dave Johnson and Terry and Rachel Dodson. In other words, your breakfast just got a New 52 reboot.

The whole thing is even marketed as a co-production between General Mills and DC, with the former presumably handling the cereal while the latter concentrated on art. Obviously, this means that these cereals are technically an edible DC Comics title, so with Halloween creeping up on us like a restless spirit, I have taken it upon myself to examine the new look for the spoooookiest of breakfast cereals to find out just how these new designs hold up to the originals.

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 Recap, Episode 4: ‘Face My Enemy’

CA_AgentsOfSHIELD

The fourth season of Agents of SHIELD's second season will probably be remembered mostly for its fightin' -- both because the fightin' was memorable and because the rest of the episode wasn't especially. But that doesn't mean the show's regressed to season one levels, even in spite of so many season one plots stinking up the place.

So what was good, what was bad, and what wonderful new treats from the Marvel Universe did the show throw at us this week? (Prepare to be disappointed on that front.) ComicsAlliance has all the answers in our patent-pending SHLEID recap of 'Face My Enemy', directed by Kevin Tancharoen and written by Drew Z. Greenberg.
