Godzilla: Rage Across Time #4

They've never really gotten around to the real question that I think we all want answered: What would've happened in the Second Punic War if Hannibal's crossing of the Alps had been stopped by Godzilla?

Fortunately, Ulises Farinas, Erik Freitas, Pablo Tunica, and Chris Mowry are here to finally settle things once and for all with Godzilla: Rage Across Time #4, in which the Carthaginian forces run across the King of All Monsters.

bce119

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.

She Can Only Save (Or Destroy) Christmas So Many Times: Paul Dini Talks ‘Jingle Belle’ [Interview]

Jingle Belle, art by Steph Buscema

Jingle Belle is the creation of Paul Dini, probably best known for his work on Batman: The Animated Series, and along with artists like Steph Buscema, J. Bone, Stephen DeStefano, Stephanie Gladden, Jose Garibaldi, and more, he created a world of sugarplums and toy-making elves that was sarcastic without being cynical and cheerful without being cloying.

Now, with over 400 pages of Jingle Belle collected in a new book from IDW, ComicsAlliance spoke to Dini about creating Jingle, his approach to Christmas mythology, and why he wanted to get away from just doing stories about Christmas.

James Jean’s Shredder Statue Gives the Turtles’ Villain Some Swagger

Good Smile
Good Smile

I don't think Shredder gets enough credit when it comes to the greatest villain conversation. I'm not saying he's the most vile foe to ever stalk a hero day and night, but the man has haunted to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for decades. He's always looked imposing, but as time has progressed past his debut, his suit of armor has gotten more and more fearsome. I'd argue that aside from Super Shredder, Oroku Sakai has never looked more dangerous than he has in Good Smile's new statue series.

We're currently in the midst of our Fantasy Week, and there's no greater fantasy tale than JRR Tolkein's epic Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Comic books have a long history with the genre and we've assembled a list of five of the best independent fantasy comics for you to check out if you're a fan of the genre. Love that? Try this!

godzilla-feat

Who else but Godzilla deserves the title of favorite monster? Sure, there are lots of great contenders, like werewolves, and Dracula, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. But the Xenomorph and Predator could team up and even they could not topple Godzilla. She has had one of the longest lives of any monster in the world.

IDW Announces ‘Biff To The Future’ From Bob Gale, Derek Fridolfs, And Alan Robinson

Back to the Future: Biff To The Future #1

Of all the movies I obsessed over in my youth, I don't think that any of them had a character as thoroughly wretched as Biff Tannen. As the primary villain of the Back to the Future trilogy, he exists to ruin multiple generations of the McFly family, with horrible schemes that are responsible for breaking the timestream itself. I mean, it's one thing to cheat to win, but to use time travel to cheat so much that it winds up turning his hometown into a nightmare dystopia? That's honestly the least of what Makes Biff such a horrible person.

Now, though, we're getting a few more details about the fall, rise, fall, rise, and fall of Hill Valley's least favorite son in the form of IDW's newest Back to the Future series, Biff to the Future, from BTTF screenwriter Bob Gale, Derek Fridolfs, and Alan Robinson.
