ScreenAndPage-Pokemon

In case you've been off the grid lately, Pokemon Go came out in the US and some other countries exactly one week ago today! And what a week it's been. Nintendo's stocks have shot sky-high, millions of gamers are discovering the concept of physical exercise, and CA's own Chris Sims was last seen roaming the Great Smoky Mountains armed only with a portable generator and wifi signal booster in pursuit of the legendary Ho-Oh.

In honor of our new national pastime, this week we're recounting the time eternal ten-year old Ash Ketchum and his best buddy Pikachu fought God in Pokemon: Arceus & The Jewel of Life!

ScreenAndPage-KillLaKill

Most anime is adapted from manga, often produced by the manga publisher to raise awareness and sell it overseas.

That’s what Screen & Page aims to explore.

This week, we're talking about the weird action-comedy with even weirder sexual politics: Kill la Kill! Please note that this piece digs into issues of sexual harassment and assault.

‘Hunter X Hunter’ Goes On Indefinite Hiatus After Brief Return

Hunter X Hunter, Yoshihiro Tagashi

As much as I've been loving Yoshihiro Togashi's long-running Hunter X Hunter, I'm a relatively recent fan of the book. I only got into it over the past year or so, and while I'm completely into its ridiculously shonen setup that seems to revolve entirely around children competing in fighting tournaments that also occasionally involve deathtraps, I've still got 25 more volumes of the manga to go through before I'm all caught up. For readers who have been keeping up with it all this time, though, the past few months have been pretty bittersweet.

After returning in April from a hiatus that lasted two years, Hunter X Hunter is going on what Weekly Shonen Jump describes as an "indefinite hiatus."

E3 2016: Koei Tecmo Flies High with Attack on Titan

I worried a bit about Koei Tecmo taking on Attack on Titan. The publisher’s previous foray into the anime realm, two games based on Fist of the North Star, really underwhelmed me with monotonous gameplay and rehashed ideas. I went into my hands-on demo for Titan expecting to write about more of the same things I’d played before, but I left the demo completely surprised. Attack on Titan is a bold new direction, and if it pans out it could be a new era of success for the company.

Fantastic Five: Best Video Game Comics

games fives

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

Comic fans and video game fans are two groups that share an awful lot of overlap, and webcomics like Penny Arcade and artists like Zac Gorman, have made all kinds of comics about video games for the internet, but what about actual comic books? In a previous video, we told you about five video games that deserved comics, but this week, it’s all about some of the very best video games that have made the leap from consoles to comic pages.

That’s what Screen & Page aims to explore.

This week, we're talking about one of the coolest --- and some would say one of the greatest --- anime series ever made, and its two obscure manga spin-offs; Cowboy Bebop!

Kawahara And Aruko’s ‘My Love Story!!’ To End In July With 100-Page Final Chapter

My Love Story!!, Kazune Kawahara and Aruko

If you've been reading ComicsAlliance for a while, then you already know that I've become a huge fan of Kazune Kawahara and Aruko's My Love Story!!. Originally serialized in Japan's Bessatsu Margaret magazine as Ore Monogatari!!, it tells the story of a high school romance between gigantic judo champion Takeo and tiny, adorable aspiring baker Rinko, and all the romantic hijinks they get into along with Takeo's best friend, the wispy, extremely handsome, and perpetually bored Sunakawa.

It's a story built on the kind of comedy that you can only get from intense love and heartbreaking misunderstandings, and it's been one of my favorite comics on the stands ever since I read the first volume. But now, it seems that Kawahara and Aruko are bringing the story to a close. The final chapter is set to run in the July 13 issues of Bessatsu Margaret --- and they're going out with an extra long installment that's set to run for 100 pages.
