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.
Superheroes are a dime a dozen in comics, but there’s only one Superman! Not only is Superman the first and greatest superhero, he also set the standard for what a superhero was and could be. So it's not really surprising that over the years Marvel has tried to come up with their own version of the Man of Steel. Obviously, some are a little more super than others. This week we'll look at the five best super-pretenders Marvel has to offer!
Welcome back to another Agents of S.O.M.E.T.H.I.N.G., where we talk about all the things to like and complain about in this week’s episode of Disney’s ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. This week: Secrets! Subterfuge! Spies! Smooches! ‘Many Heads, One Tale’ was directed by Garry A. Brown and written by Jed Whedon and DJ Doyle.
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.
Marvel’s Agent Carter firmly staked a claim in 2016 with announcement of Season 2's January premiere, and Peggy certainly isn’t pulling any punches in the first footage either. Follow Agent Carter to L.A. with our first official Season 2 trailer, as Peggy goes Hollywood with new action and romance!
Tonight’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ turned the “Many Heads” of Ward, Hydra, ATCU and Simmons’ bogus journey into “One Tale,” but what apocalyptic Marvel mystery might we be setting up? And who finally (!) got their first kiss? Find out in our full review!
Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite characters in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
Dis week we lookin at Gambit, chere. De worl's mos famous t'ief in pink shirt and metal boots, de ragin' Cajun is --- okay, I can't do that any more. No wonder Chris Claremont's mind snapped and he wrote Sovereign Seven. Anyway, in this video you can learn the strange history of Gambit's original intended storyline, which of his iconic elements were different in his earliest appearances, the answer to whether Gambit could blow up the whole planet if he wanted to (yes), and as many as nine other equally interesting facts.
Courtesy of Marvel, ComicsAlliance brings you an advance look at new periodical comic books, collected editions and graphic novels going on sale in February 2016 (and in some cases beyond) from the publisher’s mainline Marvel Universe titles, its licensed properties, and the creator-owned label Icon.
Welcome to The Issue, where we'll take a look at some of the strangest, most interesting and most distinctive single issue comic stories ever to grace the medium. You know the ones; silent issues, sideways issues, backwards issues; the comics that try to do something different with the form, and stand out from the series they belong to.
We're kicking off with a recent example, one that seems to have come from an alternate universe where the rules of the comics form are slightly different: Dan Slott and Mike Allred's Silver Surfer #11.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been humming along nicely through Season 3, but for those among us counting down the days to Agent Carter’s return, Peggy just gave us some official intel. The one and only Agent Carter will return for her second mission in 2016, with an official premiere date set for January.
The world is simply too full of comics that most of us are never going to read. For example, all the manga that gets translated into English is just the tip of that particular iceberg, and the French market is brimming with comics that you're unlikely to get to if you don't read French. So it's especially dispiriting to consider that Korea's wealth of home-grown comics, or manhwa, has a presence among English language readers that makes even those libraries look bountiful.
All of which means that Marvel publishing an adaptation of Roy Thomas and John Buscema's classic 'origin of Ultron' storyline from the late '60s Avengers comics from a group of Korean manhwa creators may be the first experience a lot of readers will have of Korean comics.
