The Question: The Best Comics of 2016 (So Far)

q2016

The comics world is full of questions — like “Who would win in a fight?”; “Which one of the Powerpuff Girls is best?”; and “Who is the handsomest hero and why is it Gambit?” Here at ComicsAlliance, we spend a lot of time thinking about everything from the big questions that matter a whole lot to the small ones that are still kinda fascinating. With The Question, we’re going to give our writers the opportunity to give their answers, because if we’re always thinking about this stuff anyway, we might as well write it down.

For our latest question, we wanted to keep things simple. We’re now more than halfway through the year, and 2016 has brought so many exciting new comics. With all that in mind: What's your favorite comic of the year so far?

Cast Party: Who Should Star in a ‘Space Battle Lunchtime’ Movie?

ElleCollins_CastParty

Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. This week I'm turning to one of my very favorite indie comics of the moment, Space Battle Lunchtime, the sci-fi cooking competition comic written and drawn by Natalie Riess, and published by Oni Press.

Only three issues are out so far, so that's all I have to go on in casting the roles. But barring any massive twists, the major players seem pretty well established.

CA_BestComics

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.

Mondo
Mondo

Last July, Mondo hit San Diego Comic-Con hard with the first looks at a number of all-new toys and statues from its collectibles division. Though the Austin-based art gallery built its reputation on curating original screen prints for films, recent years have seen Mondo expand its horizons to clothing, music and figures. Many of the collectibles on display last year were in their earliest stages, and merely shown to give a glimpse into the future of Mondo's plans.

While figures like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Baby Hellboy have since been announced, many of us have been waiting for the Scott Pilgrim vs The World Ramona Flowers collectible figure to arrive. Today, we can exclusively announce the details and offer the first official images of Mondo's Ramona Flowers collectible figure.
