Here's my main complaint about Telltale Games penultimate episode of its Fables prequel video game, The Wolf Among Us: It starts a little slow.
That kind of seems to be the point, though. This episode, titled "In Sheep's Clothing," adds yet another twist to the noir-ish detective story that's been running through it. There's a psychological horror element to it that plays out with a very slow build, until it explodes into the surreal the very end. There's a sort of David Lynch feel to it. I absolutely loved it.
Welcome to the latest episode of ComicsAlliance Presents “Kate or Die,” a series of exclusive comic strips created by one of our favorite cartoonists, Kate Leth! In this personal episode, Kate confronts the anxiety all professionals share when they encounter a great and humbling piece of work created by someone else in their own field. In Kate's case, it's comics -- specifically, Jeff Lemire's Sweet Tooth.
Courtesy of DC Comics, ComicsAlliance brings you an advance look at new periodical comic books, collected editions and graphic novels going on sale in June 2014 (and in some cases beyond) from the publisher’s New 52 superhero line, the mature readers Vertigo imprint, and the DC Entertainment brand of special projects, digital-first, all-ages and licensed titles. All of the following books can be purchased at finer comic book shops, where you can also pre-order your selections to ensure you’ll get a copy before they sell out.
To paraphrase the immortal Xzibit, "Yo dawg, we heard you like DC Comics, so we put DC Comics in your TV so you can watch comics while you read comics."
Two different networks announced today that they're picking up three different shows based on DC and Vertigo properties: Constantine on NBC,iZombie and The Flash on The CW. With Arrow headed into its third season at The CW and Gotham already in production at Fox, this fall will be filled with hour-long dramas based on DC Comics. Industry scuttlebutt is that DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns is the primary force behind getting these shows this far, making today a pretty good day for the longtime superhero writer.
Seth Rogen and co-writer Evan Goldberg's foray into the world of comics adaptations, The Green Hornet, wasn't a box office hit and led to some highly divergent opinions.
Even so, the writing duo is working with Sam Catlin, who wrote a good many episodes of Breaking Bad, on AMC's new Preacher series, and according to Rogen, there's some seriously nutty stuff in store -- ideas that will expand on the comic -- for the show.
This week, Chris and Matt get a little sidetracked while talking about Batman Eternal #4, which is scripted by John Layman and has art by Dustin Nguyen, and get into a discussion about writing comics like TV shows. After that, their discussion about Southern Bastards #1 by Jason Aaron and Jason Latour weirdly heads into a discussion about Bruce Jones' Incredible Hulk run. Finally, they talk about CMYK #1, and some of the controversy around it.

Originally serialized in ten issues by Vertigo throughout 2010, Daytripper has since become known as the master work of Brazilian cartoonists and brothers Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon. The gorgeously illustrated Daytripper employs (and in some cases innovates) the special language of comics to ends that are at once uplifting and devastating, creating a truly emotional journey into the soul of a man whose life, loves and home seem as intimate as your own.
Daytripper's original issues won Eisner, Harvey and Eagle Awards, and its paperback collection became a New York Times bestseller. Soon to be available as a hardcover for the first time in the US, Vertigo's Daytripper: The Deluxe Edition recompiles the story in an oversized edition with improved paper stock, a wraparound cover and a behind-the-scenes section containing sketches, layouts and other artwork by Bá and Moon from throughout the Daytripper creative process. Courtesy of Vertigo, ComicsAlliance is pleased to present an advanced look at that very special material in the gallery below.
You may remember WGN America as the national cable channel where you could watch The Bozo Show, find out about Chicago's often-terrible weather, and watch a huge number of Cubs games, but it's soon to become a channel with original, hour-long dramas, just like every other cable channel on TV. Among its upcoming shows is a TV adaptation of Scalped, the hugely acclaimed Vertigo series by Jason Aaron and R.M. Guera with covers by Jock that follows FBI agent Dashiell Bad Horse as he goes undercover to bring down a crime ring at the Native American Reservation where he grew up.
Doug Jung, writer of the movie Confidence and quite a few episodes of the undercover-cop series Dark Blue, will write the show's script.
