Q: Can you help me make sense of how the Speed Force is supposed to work? -- @TheKize
A: For those of you who may not know, the Speed Force is a plot point from the pages of The Flash that was introduced back in the '90s, and ended up not just shaping how the Flash himself would work for the next two decades, but also united an entire corner of the DC Universe into a cohesive whole.
The thing is, while I've definitely read those comics and love 'em to pieces, I'm not sure I'm the best person to ask about how it works. You should probably just ask Mark Waid. Which is what I did.
This week we're looking at a comics character with possibly the weirdest villains, one of the most iconic stars of newspaper strips around the world, Dick Tracy. The private eye has a stunningly huge gallery of rogues to choose from, so we've narrowed it down to the best of the worst for you to have your say in which one is his ultimate enemy.
Anyone who romanticizes the intersection of art and pain should meet the villain of The Electric Sublime, a comic by W. Maxwell Prince and Martin Morazzo. In this preview of the third issue, we find him at work, painting with the blood of a man he's holding prisoner and torturing. And he's doing it while wearing an Andy Warhol wig, no less. What he's painting is the winky-face icon we've been seeing since the first issue, and doing it human blood has to be a clue to how the magical stuff that's been going on has been accomplished.
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.
The CW’s fourway crossover between Supergirl, Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow had enough material for five episodes, let alone three, so a few scenes understandably fell by the wayside. Among them, producers reveal two Supergirl-Legends connections we may explore in the future, and a deeper dive into the mysterious Dominators.
Tyson Hesse's Diesel is a bright and accessible steampunk series featuring flying cars, airships, and adventures starring a plucky young girl out to prove herself worthy of her father's legacy. Later this month, Boom Studios will publish the series' first original graphic novel, Diesel: Ignition and the publisher has provided us with an exclusive first look inside!
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
This week we're counting down the five best recurring heroes ever to grace the pages of war comics.
Thanks to the events of Civil War II, the Guardians of the Galaxy have found themselves stranded on Earth, and while that's a homecoming for members such as Star-Lord, The Thing and Venom, others aren't going to have such a good time acclimating to new customs.
One such Guardian is the notoriously cranky Rocket Raccoon, who finds himself forced to force the perils of Times Square at night and the MTA in a new series by Matthew Rosenberg and Jorge Coelho.
Dangerous business, making trailers these days. When a beloved franchise unveils the first look at its latest installment, they can be sure that the devoted fanbase will go through each and every frame with a fine-toothed comb, on the hunt for any context-free images that may hint at a new character, location, or plot development. In the worst cases, a trailer becomes a maddening game of keep away between the editor cutting it and the fans itching to strip-mine it for spoilers. James Gunn, as he’s readied the first trailer for his upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, has had to learn this the hard way.
