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.
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.
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.
If you've been keeping up with IDW's Powerpuff Girls series, then you already know that the first arc has been built around that sinister simian, Mojo Jojo, finally realizing that his life of crime was getting him nowhere and requesting that Professor Utonium take away the nightmarish burden of sentience so that he could live out his days in peace as a normal monkey. Well, I don't want to spoil anything for those of you who have, y'know, never read a superhero comic book before, but it turns out that was all a dastardly ploy!
In next week's spine-tingling Powerpuff Girls #6, writer/artist Troy Little reveals the evil machinations that have led to the potential destruction of the city of Townsville. But you, dear readers, don't have to wait quite that long to get in on the action. Check out a preview of the issue below!

A little while back Kyle Baker revealed on his website details of Circuit Breaker, his upcoming Image comic. Illustrated by Baker and written by Kevin McCarthy, the comic stars a young girl robot in a future Tokyo and is inspired largely by the work of Osamu Tezuka. Baker revealed some early art when the title was first announced, but he's posted a new page, both at the ink stage and in color, and I'm excited about this comic all over again. No word yet on when it will arrive in stores, but you can check out the latest art below, as well as some early pages you may have missed, below.
On sale March 5, Day Men #3 will be the first issue of the BOOM! Studios vampire noir to be released since December. The reason for the delay is of course the uncommonly intricate nature of Brian Stelfreeze's artwork, which is rarely seen in serial projects at all, much less in an ongoing series. Co-writer and BOOM! Editor in Chief Matt Gagnon has referenced the "insane amount of effort" Stelfreeze brings to each issue, some of which is certainly apparent in these Day Men #3 images you're seeing here for the very first time.
DC's digital-first line has provided an outlet for a lot of episodic, unconstrained storytelling starring characters from Teen Titans Go!, Batman '66, the Batman Beyond universe and more, but this Monday's Adventures of Superman Chapter 42 will take things a step further as Clark Kent spends a day babysitting Sheldon Mayer's Sugar and Spike in a new story by writer Fabian Nicieza and artists Phil Hester and Eric Gapstur.

But first? Skips will need the right accessories. Writer and artist Mad Rupert is set to supply the hero with the tools he needs in next week's Regular Show: Skips #4, which features wacky Time Police inventions aplenty.
