Just last week, Walking Dead Season 6 set photos overwhelmingly pointed to the arrival of comic favorite Paul ‘Jesus’ Monroe, though few could identify the actor under under a beard and beanie. Now, AMC has confirmed that Luck star Tom Payne will portray the Robert Kirkman figure, bringing about some eye-opening changes with him.

Faithful fans of The Walking Dead well-know that the AMC series has only time before casting its next biggest big bad since The Governor, and that day may finally be upon us. A recent casting call unmistakably alludes to one of Rick Grimes’ most frightful enemies, and a hell of a finale to Season 6.
The first three seasons of The Walking Dead developed an unfortunate trend of killing off male African-American characters just as a new one would emerge, an issue many were quick to raise again when Season 5 killed off three more leading men of color. Now, in advance of Season 6, Dead showrunner Scott Gimple addresses the “tricky” controversy, noting the actual actors have no bearing on their character’s fate.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
Lazarus is the current ongoing collaboration between Greg Rucka and Michael Lark, a dystopian sci-fi series about family, class, and poverty, which launched in 2013 from Image Comics. Three collected editions are currently available, and the 20th issue of the series comes out later this month.
When you pick up a new comic by Phil Hester and John McCrea, you pretty much expect it to be good. Hester, after all, has produced amazing work as both a writer and an artist on titles like Green Arrow and Firebreather, going all the way back to The Wretch, while McCrea was, among other things, the co-creator of one of my all-time favorite comics, Hitman. They've got a track record, is what I'm getting at, so when they pair up and launch a new series, you expect it to be good.
With Mythic, they're bringing a rip-roaring adventure to a world full of magic at a pace that doesn't leave time to explain anything to its readers, and they're happily blowing their biggest surprises in the next-issue blurbs just to make sure you keep reading, and it's not just good. It's great.
September 16th should become some kind of comic national holiday because it’s the birthday of both Mike Mignola and Kurt Busiek, and as far as making quality comics goes, that is one heck of a dynamic duo. Today is Busiek’s 55th birthday, and this month marks the 20th anniversary of Busiek’s ongoing masterpiece with Alex Ross and Brent Anderson; Astro City.
In celebration, we’ve compiled a collection of some of Ross’ best covers to showcase how the world of Astro City has changed over the years.
The Walking Dead Season 6 still has some major comic roles to cast (one of which we got an exclusive look at earlier today), but has the next big bad finally arrived? Xander Berkeley will join The Walking Dead in a major new role, but is he the comic big bad we’ve been waiting for?
The Walking Dead Season 6 has made no secret of its likelihood to adapt a few of the Robert Kirkman comic’s biggest stories, including some of its most memorable characters yet. We may yet have a line on one, as exclusive set photos from Season 6 reveal Rick, Daryl, Abraham, and one (figuratively) dead ringer for Paul “Jesus” Monroe!
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.
