Iron Fist: The Living Weapon by Kaare Andrews

North And Rugg Unleash Mecha Lumpy Space Princess In ‘Adventure Time’ #26 [Preview]

Adventure Time #26, Boom! Studios

I think it's fair to say that the characters in Adventure Time are prone to making some pretty bad decisions. I mean, just the lack of tooth-brushing that we've seen in a show set in a place called "The Candy Kingdom" alone is enough to make you shake your head at the life choices Finn and Jake have made. Next week, though, when the Eisner award-winning Adventure Time comic book hits its 26th issue, writer Ryan North and artist Jim Rugg (who is doing a full AT arc following his backup in issue #10) lead Finn and Jake to make one of the most alarmingly and obviously terrible decisions that we've see yet -- and you can get a jump start on cringing right here at CA with the preview below.

And if that wasn't enough to get to read on, then trust me when I say that for one brief panel, this issue introduces what is undoubtedly the sensational character find of 2014: MECHA LUMPY SPACE PRINCESS.

Read A Complete 8-Page Comic From ‘The Simon & Kirby Library’ Horror Collection

Dead Man's Lode by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby

Most comics readers are pretty familiar with Jack Kirby and Joe Simon from their work in superhero comics -- they were, after all, the team that created Captain America and gave Marvel its first and most enduring hit character -- but in the period between the Golden Age and Kirby's work building the Marvel Universe with Stan Lee, they dabbled in all sorts of different genres. Working as a team, Simon and Kirby not only created the first romance comics, but they also tried their hand at classic comic book horror -- and if you've never read any of that stuff, today is your lucky day.

While the 1950s Simon and Kirby stories are often overlooked, Titan Books is putting the spotlight back on them in a series of beautiful hardcovers under the banner of The Simon and Kirby Library. To mark release of the volume focused on their horror stories, they've offered CA the chance to bring you eight pages of sheer terror (or at least rad artwork of Kirby drawing creepy skeletons) in a complete story with the slightly unfortunate title "Dead Man's Lode!"

Monster Day Hits Townsville In Derek Charm’s ‘Powerpuff Girls’ #7 [Preview]

Powerpuff Girls #7 by Derek Charm

We've been excited about the amazing Derek Charm taking a shot at writing and drawing The Powerpuff Girls ever since IDW first announced his two-part story, and now, we are on the eve of Monster Day. PPG #7 is out next week, and with it, the City of Townsville comes under attack -- sort of -- by the residents of Monster Island, heckbent on having a good time and probably destroying huge swaths of real estate in the process.

Obviously, the Utonium Triplets are going to have something to say about that, but how do you stop a monster invasion when all they really want is to have a good time? It's pretty exciting, but if you still need more to get pumped about it, check out a preview below!

Time’s Up In ‘Regular Show: Skips’ #5 [Preview]

Regular Show Skips 5 Preview
Boom! Studios

It's early yet, but I'm calling it: Regular Show: Skips #5 -- the second-to-last issue in the miniseries -- has my favorite panel of the month... or at very least my favorite portent of destruction. That's not to say I think writer and artist Mad Rupert is going to make the book's hero fail on his mission to save his friends (and their vacation) from a horrible time loop using high tech equipment and the unique skills he's obtained as an immortal -- but for my money nothing beats watching a gumball machine with anger issues predict oblivion. You can see for yourself in our preview of the issue, which is out this week from Boom! Studios with covers by Rupert, Felicia Choo, Monica Ray and Jimmy Giegerich.

Marvel Reveals RADD New ‘Silver Surfer’ #1 Art And Covers By Allred, Francavilla, Samnee And Young [Preview]

Silver Surfer 1 Preview

Marvel teased a bit of Mike Allred 's art when it announced he'd be working with writer Dan Slott on a new Silver Surfer ongoing series a few months back during New York Comic Con, but today the publisher finally hit us with a wave of shiny new Norrin Radd art. In addition to Allred's previously seen cover, there's three new pages from March's Silver Surfer #1 infused with the Madman creator and recent FF artist's brand of cosmic comic energy, plus a variant cover by Francesco Francavilla, an animal variant by Chris Samnee and a (appropriately dubbed) young variant by Skottie Young. I'm pretty sure that if Kid Galactus chopmed down every planet in adorable cereal-bowl-style, Reed Richards would've just let him have Earth.

Marceline And Jake Venture Into The Nightosphere In ‘Adventure Time Vol. 3: Seeing Red’ [Preview]

Marceline Seeing Red
Boom! Studios

Following our lenghty interview with Adventure Time Vol. 3: Seeing Red writer (and CA guest contributor) Kate Leth earlier this month, you may have found yourself wondering just when you could read a solid chunk of the Zachary Sterling-illustrated original graphic novel. The full OGN isn't out until Wednesday, March 5, but thanks to a beefy digital deliver from Boom! Studios, today you can now check out the book's cover by Stephanie Gonzaga and ten full pages of Leth and Sterling's interiors as they chronicle Marceline the Vampire Queen's (and Jake the Dog's) latest conflict with her Nightosphere-ruling father.

Archie Sees What Happens ‘After The Credits’ In ‘Sonic’ And ‘Mega Man’ This May [Preview]

Sonic Mega Man Archie After The Credits
Archie Comics

As a kid I can only remember a single time anything ever happened after the credits of a movie. It was after napping through the second half of Beethoven (or maybe Beethoven 2?) on VHS, and all that happened was a silhouette of a St. Bernard climbed a hill and barked in the sunset. But then Iron Man came along in 2008 and shook Hollywood to the core with Samuel L. Jackson's now classic "Avengers Initiative" recruitment scene. Surprisingly, no one in the comic book industry proper had quite capitalized on the storytelling device... until now. This May, Archie Comics is kicking off its own “After the Credits” initiative in its Sonic The Hedgehog and Mega Man titles.

Wook Jin Clark Henshins His Love Of Tokusatsu And Atlanta Into ‘Megagogo’ Vol. 001 [Interview+Preview]

Megagogo Vol 001 Wook Jin Clark Interview

This Wednesday Wook Jin Clark destroys much of downtown Atlanta with Megagogo Vol. 001, the debut chapter of his new ongoing graphic novel series from Oni Press. The destruction's a matter of love, though, and it's the kind you could only get from a native -- a native who also happens to love live action Japanese superhero shows. Clark's new story takes the conventions of his favorite tokusatsu and drops them into the city he grew up loving for a compelling original work that moves at the speed of cosmic-powered kicks. ComicsAlliance got ahold of Clark to see what went into launching the new series and to otherwise get to the heart of its mecha-minded action. You can read the full interview, plus a preview of Megagogo Vol. 001, after the jump.
