When it comes to San Diego Comic-Con, every publisher approaches the show a little bit differently. Whether they house cosplay contests, interactive displays, photo ops with talent, creator signings and/or a whole lot of purchasable product, SDCC booths are an opportunity for the publishers that can attend to make a big impression on one of the most attended pop culture gatherings of the year. You can get a sampling of what publishers like Marvel, DC, Archie, Boom!, IDW, 2000 AD, Dark Horse, Image, Fantagraphics, Oni and others were up to on the show floor of this year's SDCC after the cut.

Following the unfortunate box office performance of Dredd (which CA's own Chris Sims liked quite a bit), fans have appropriately been full of... dread... about the possibility of seeing their favorite futuristic judge doling out vengeance on the big screen. Luckily, it looks like John Wagner
We enjoyed 2000 AD's cheeky salutation to Marvel Comics as the superhero publisher enters the world of weekly comics, as announced recently at South By Southwest. But as the promo above correctly indicates, 2000 AD's been at the weekly comics game for 36 years and maybe everybody should just calm down a bit. Fair point to 2000
I've been meaning to get more into Judge Dredd for a while now. I picked up a few of the classic stories back in October with the beautifully designed collections of The Dark Judges and The Cursed Earth, and I've read bits and pieces from the issues of 2000 AD that I come across, but to be honest, it can be difficult to figure out a place to really jump in.
But then, a copy of the new printing of John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra's Origins showed up at my house courtesy of 2000 AD, and
Considering that he's an extremely strict dude in head-to-toe black leather with a penchant for dealing out harsh punishments, I think it's safe to say that Judge Dredd has always been more than a little fetish-y. This month, though, things are finally going to be taken to their logical extreme, as Mega Ci
Let me be the first to apologize to you, on behalf of the entire comics press. We screwed up. We were too focused on the wrong events in 2012. We spent tens of thousands of words on Avengers vs X-Men, Before Watchmen, Night of the Owls, and we missed the fact that there was a bigger, better, and extremely satisfying crossover sitting right under our noses. Not all of us -- a few of
Movies: USA Today has debuted a new still from Man of Steel... which is Superman standing around with some military peeps like in the trailer.
Video: It's the pairing you seriously never dreamed in fan Adrien Fauconnier's Tintin Vs. Dragon Ball trailer.
Chris Sims: Welcome back to ComicsAlliance vs. the '90s and our exhaustive look at 1995's Judge Dredd! When we last left off, Dredd had been convicted of murder and sent off to prison, Judge Fargo had retired and been exiled to the Cursed Earth, and Rico and Griffin were plotting a takeover of Mega City One. If that sounds fun and interesting, trust us: it's not.
After much speculation regarding the future of Dave Sim's Cerebus, and the creators' Kickstarter initiative to raise money to digitize and remaster all of the High Society storyline, it was recently announced that IDW would be publishing the cartoonists' 'High Society Digital Audio' in an as-yet-to-be-determined physical form. On the heels of that new partnership comes a variant cover by Sim fo
