Available for free right now is Pressure/Sensitivity, the very cleverly titled inaugural anthology project produced by Wacom. The book is a natural step for Wacom to make, as makers of the tablet technology used by an increasing number of comic book artists to create their work. Because Pressure/Sensitivity: An Awesome Comics Anthology is edited by former ComicsAlliance editor Caleb Goellner (currently Wacom's Social Marketing Specialist), it comes as no surprise that the book is populated by contributors well known to CA readers for their distinctive styles and technical prowess: Ben Sears, Giannis Milonogiannis, Ming Doyle, Meredith Gran & Mike Holmes, and Ulises Farinas & Ryan Hill.
Skullkickers and Wayward author Jim Zub launched a simple hashtag late on Wednesday that turned the comics Twittersphere into a museum of childhood memories, with fans and creators sharing '#fourcomics' that influenced them growing up. With fans of varying ages and experiences sharing issues and series that shaped them as kids or that still influence them today, the hashtag quickly became one of the top trending topics of conversation on Twitter.
ComicsAlliance has collected some examples from comic writers, artists, and cartoonists, but anyone with a Twitter account can contribute their own four comics that shaped them by using the #fourcomics hashtag, and anyone can check out the hashtag to see what everyone is posting. Warning: You will be transplanted back to your earliest comic book memories and feel an irresistible urge to go digging through longboxes for your worn-out favorite comics.
CBS ‘Supergirl’ recently revealed a more procedural format that had many fans worried about the series, but the casting of Kara Zor-El should leave all positively ‘Glee’-ful.

This week in The Complete History of Comic-Book Movies: A look back at the forgotten hero who starred in the genre’s first-ever masterpiece:
If there's one thing I think we can all agree on, it's that comics have been suffering from a distinct lack of Uncle Scrooge lately. He is, after all, officially ranked at #3 on ComicsAlliance's definitive but sadly unpublished list of the greatest comic book characters of all time, but while reprints of his more famous adventures have been making their way back to shelves recently, he hasn't had a monthly book in almost four years.
Fortunately, that's a problem that's soon to be remedied: Starting in April, IDW will be publishing a new monthly Uncle Scrooge comic as part of a new line of Disney books, kicking off the return of the whole line with Donald Duck in May, Mickey Mouse in April, and the long-running Walt Disney's Comics And Stories in June.
Comic-Con International has been taking place in San Diego since it was launched as the Golden State Comic Book Convention back in 1970. San Diego is part of Comic-Con, and Comic-Con is part of San Diego. At least it was? As the current deal between Comic-Con and San Diego is set to expire next year, the convention could be looking elsewhere for a new home—one with more space—and both Los Angeles and Anaheim are making a push to steal away the biggest pop culture gathering in the world.
The CW’s superhero series Arrow re-imagines Green Arrow for a TV audience as a tough, often ruthless vigilante bent on setting things right in his home of Starling City by punishing the wicked.

This week: The rapture doesn't happen, as the title may imply. In fact, people are pretty upset or in denial about last episode's apparent death. Also, Vinnie Jones shows up and is pretty awesome.
Marvel's announcement on Tuesday that the Marvel Universe and the Ultimate Universe are coming to an end, as realities collide in Secret Wars' "Battleworld," has thrown a lot of fans into a tizzy.

During San Diego Comic-Con 2014, sellers of outstanding rare art prints and vinyl records, Mondo, revealed it would be getting into the collectible figure game.
