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 ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ kicks back into Season 4 making some Ghostly “Deals With Our Devils,” but is the Rider’s new host a much better choice than Robbie Reyes? And was that some ‘Strange’ magic we spied Aida conjuring? Find out in our full review of tonight’s latest ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’!
There’s a particular sequence in the latest issue of Brian Michael Bendis, Michael Gaydos and Matt Hollingsworth’s Jessica Jones that I want to focus on this week. About halfway through Jessica Jones #2, Jessica heads back to her office and, before she enters, she imagines what might be waiting for her behind the door. Soldiers, Avengers, or the street-level New York superheroes. Instead of going in, she decides to flee.
The double page spread makes unusual use of white space, but what does that white space represent?
We've selected some great gifts aimed at comics readers who are looking to expand their minds or take a journey through a world more colorful than our own. Or, at the very least, those readers who are looking for something freaky to laugh at while they wait for the pizza to arrive.
When Marvel Comics began rolling out its teasers for the upcoming Resurrxion line of titles following Inhumans vs X-Men, one of the most exciting pieces of news was that Iceman would be getting his own ongoing comic. Today, the publisher has unveiled the creative team for Iceman as Sina Grace and Alessandro Vitti, who will be delving into Bobby Drake's mindset as a recently out gay man, what that means for his past, and what it means for the future.
Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with decades of comics behind, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in comics in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
This week we're taking a look at Marvel's other big-time superhero team, the Defenders!
Deadpool is Marvel's most popular comedy character of the last decade. Howard the Duck was the publisher's comedy star of the Bronze Age, and he's enjoyed a recent revival. But what if these two characters were squished together into one character? That's the very important question that's answered in Deadpool the Duck, a five issue mini-series written by Stuart Moore with art by Jacopo Camagni.
It's been five years since the worlds of the Marvel Universe and the numerous Capcom Universes collided. In that time, Marvel's comics have undergone a great deal of change, while Capcom's catalog has remained rather steady. In addition to the sweeping events in the pages of the comics, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has exploded since Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 hit shelves. It's no wonder then that rumors of a new entry in the series have surfaced ahead of PlayStation Experience, hinting that the worlds would collide once more, this time with a more cinematic bent.
Greg Rucka was born on this day in 1969, and over the course of his career in comics and novels he's made his name as one of the go-to authors for gripping and tense thriller stories, as well as bold statements on the nature of superheroes, and careful and nuanced examinations of iconic characters.
