Constantine fans got another return to form with news that Matt Ryan would reprise his NBC role for the upcoming Justice League Dark, but that was only a trial run. The demon-fighting detective (and his live-action voice) will return as an animated CW Seed series, the first photo of which is already here!

Courtesy of DC Comics, ComicsAlliance brings you an advance look at new periodical comic books, collected editions, graphic novels and collectibles going on sale in March 2017 (and in some cases beyond) from the publisher’s superhero line and the mature readers Vertigo imprint.
With titles such as Clean Room, Unfollow and Frostbite, Vertigo has been making a comeback over the past year or two, and is once again becoming a place where the best creators can let loose with their most interesting ideas.
This March, Legacy of Luther Strode writer Justin Jordan teams with High Crimes artist Ibrahim Moustafa for a new Vertigo miniseries titled Savage Things, a mix of espionage and horror that sees a terrorist group founded by the US government going rogue and turning its attention on domestic targets.
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.
This week we're turning to Astro City, the superhero meta-epic created by Kurt Busiek with artists Alex Ross and Brent Anderson. It originally launched at Image Comics way back in 1995, and now lives on at Vertigo.
Astro City would work best as a big budget semi-anthology TV series. The superheroes would have recurring roles, but each episode would focus on a different character, whether it's one of them or one of the regular citizens. With that in mind, I've focused on a few of the earliest stories, with room to cast more down the road.
