An ancient struggle is coming to a head in Assassin's Creed: Uprising #1, written by Dan Watters and Alex Paknadel with art by José Holder. This is the beginning of a new series, set in the present day and starring Charlotte de la Cruz, the assassin who was previously featured in Titan's recently-ended Assassin's Creed series. Check out a preview.

Tank Girl, the anarchic punk protagonist created by Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett, has undergone a renewal in recent years thanks to new comics from Titan with Martin once again at the helm of her adventures. To celebrate over twenty years of the character, Titan is offering a great big stack of digital Tank Girl comics through Humble Bundle, including classic stories and the more modern reinventions.
This March, Titan is releasing a new Dark Souls anthology miniseries titled Dark Souls: Tales of Ember, which explores the worlds of the game in a number of short stories that expands the lore of Lordran and Drangleic in new and exciting ways. Written by George Mann and Tauriq Moosa, the two issue miniseries features art by a host of some of the best in the industry right now, each providing their own spin on the iconic franchise.
Assassin's Creed games often live and die on the strength of their stories and their lead character, and one of the big appeals of the series is getting to go back in time and live through this fictional historical assassin. In a new miniseries by Ian Edginton and Valeria Favoccia, Assassin's Creed: Reflections, four of the series' most beloved protagonists from the video game are returning for stories that expand on their established history, including greatest video game character of all time, Ezio Auditore da Firenze.
Penny Dreadful, as the name implies, is one of those deliberately pulpy genre shows that really lends itself to a comics adaptation. That adaptation comes to light on April 5 with the release of Penny Dreadful #1, written by Chris King with art by Jesús Hervás.
We don't know much about what happens in the comic yet, except that it involves cowboy werewolf Ethan Chandler fighting supernatural threats as he adjusts to the absence of Vanessa Ives. In short, it sounds a lot like the TV show. But we do now know that Penny Dreadful #1 will be released with six variant covers.
For many longtime Doctor Who fans, the era of the Fourth Doctor holds a special place in our hearts. Tom Baker, an actor with a style as unique as his appearance, played the Doctor for seven seasons and 172 episodes from 1974 to 1981. And if you were an American kid watching Doctor Who on PBS in the 1980s, he was almost certainly the first Doctor you saw. Some of his seasons are better than others, to be sure, but long before David Tennant put on his own overcoat, this era set the standard by which all Doctors were judged.
So it's with a hopefully healthy amount of Fourth Doctor nostalgia that I approach Titan's Doctor Who comics. I haven't read a lot of Doctor Who comics before, but the just released Doctor Who: The Fourth Doctor Vol. 1: Gaze of the Medusa seems like a good place to start.
This week sees the release of Titan Comics' Hook Jaw re-imagining by Si Spurrier, Conor Boyle, Guilia Brusco and Rob Steen, which brings the violent British environmentalist shark horror comic of the 1970s into the 21st century.
Ahead of the book's debut, ComicsAlliance chatted with Spurrier to find out how well he knew the original strip, what sort of research he had to do, and how he was able to get inside the head of a shark (metaphorically speaking, that is).
I know we've all been waiting very patiently, but the day is finally upon us. Comics based on James Cameron's Avatar are finally coming next year on Free Comic Book Day! The comic book adaptation of the smash-hit blockbuster that everyone loves and remembers is just one of twelve Gold Titles as part of FCBD's 2017 celebration, which also includes Rick & Morty, Doctor Who and X-O Manowar.
Announced today, Free Comic Book Day 2017 will be celebrated across the world on May 6th, and as usual the big name publishers, including Image, IDW, Boom, Oni and Titan, all have offerings as part of next year's crop of Gold Sponsor titles.
When Titan announced that it was doing a comic book version of Kim Newman's Anno Dracula novels, I sort of assumed that they'd be doing an adaptation of the first novel and going from there. It does, after all, introduce the concept behind the universe, that it's not just a world where Dracula wins at the end of Bram Stoker's original story and goes on to rule over a late 19th-Century England, but that it's a shared universe where virtually all literature and pop culture from Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde to The Rockford Files coexist with vampires.
Now, though, it seems like that's not the case. When Kim Newman and Paul McCaffrey launch Anno Dracula in March, it looks like it'll be going beyond that original novel into something new. Check out a preview!
There's always been a seamless crossover between video games and comic books, and odds are if you're a fan of one, you're a fan of the other. Comics have been adapted into video games and vice-versa for almost as long as video games have been "a thing," and as both mediums have evolved, so too has the quality of those crossovers. With the holidays around the corner, we've put together a selection of some of the best video game related comics and art books for the gamer in your life.
