Fall In With A Bad Crowd In ‘Gotham Academy: Second Semester’ #1 [Preview]

Gotham Academy: Second Semester #1

I'll admit that I've been a little worried about Gotham Academy. I mean, yes, we all knew that the fantastic series of Gotham City's most prestigious private school (which of course has an extensive and extremely dangerous set of catacombs and underground tunnels that seem to lead directly to Arkham Asylum, because it's Gotham City and that's how they roll) was due for a comeback in DC's Rebirth era, but that news was such a relief that it almost seemed too good to be true.

Now, though, we're only a week away from the story's return in the pages of Gotham Academy: Second Semester in next week's all-new #1. That means we can all rejoice --- at least for a second. For you see, in among all the horrors and crimes of Gotham City is the most dire problem of all: Olive Silverlock might be falling in... with the wrong crowd!

We Can Haunt That Icy Moon Together: Should You Be Reading ‘Southern Cross’?


Ever since Saga set a new standard for indie comics success in 2012, there's been an explosion of American sci-fi comics, many of them from Saga publisher Image Comics. Of these, one of the biggest standouts is Southern Cross, which has created a compelling, dense world with stunning visuals and gripping mysteries in just its first six issues.

The Best DC Comics For Young Readers [Kids’ Comics]


Superhero comic books are a great way to get kids of all ages reading, while teaching solid moral lessons and giving them something to aspire to. However, it can be difficult parsing which titles are suitable for kids and teens, and which titles most assuredly are not, so ComicsAlliance has put together a list of some of the best choices.

Today we're looking at DC Comics, which has been making increasing attempts to be more inclusive and provide a wider range of comics for all audiences over the past couple of years. Whether it's comics for fans of TV shows, new spins on classic franchises, or a Young Adult take on political satire, there's something for everyone these days at DC.

Friendships and Superman May Get Torn Apart In August’s ‘Action Comics’ And ‘Gotham Academy Annual’


The stakes are high in August's Action Comics #692, as Superman faces a fateful decision to put a stop Doomsday (and we all know how that's worked out for him in the past). The second of the month's Action Comics issues from Dan Jurgens, Stephen Segovia, and Art Thibert brings the "Path to Doom" storyline to its conclusion that could spell the end of the world for someone.

Of course, stakes don't always have to be Doomsday-sized to feel like the end of the world, and a schism in Gotham Academy's Detective Club probably feels just as apocalyptic to Maps in August's Gotham Academy Annual #1, from writers Becky Cloonan and Brenden Fletcher, and artists Adam Archer, Michael Dialynas, and Christian Wildgoose

Frank Castle Still Not Over Dead Family In Cloonan And Dillon’s ‘The Punisher’ #1 [Preview]

Get Becky Cloonan’s ‘Castlevania’ Print From Mondo At Emerald City This Weekend (And Pick Up One For Me Too)

Castlevania print by Mondo/Becky Cloonan

Gather round, friends, for a story of the distant past. Once upon a time, you could rely on Konami to produce a new Castlevania game almost every year, taking the Belmont clan through the strange, side-scrolling creature of chaos that was Dracula's castle. Sadly, it seems like those days are over. Even with 2014's bizarre Dracula-in-Modern-Times Lords of Shadow 2, we haven't gotten a proper "classic" installment since 2010, and with Konami's move away from console gaming, it doesn't seem like we're going to get one any time soon.

If, however, you still have love in your heart for the act of beating the undead into dust with a whip - and who doesn't? - then I have some pretty great news. The folks over at Mondo have apparently decided to expand into the world of video games, and they're doing it with a series of new prints that includes a pair of Konami Classics: Silent Hill by Silent Hill by Sam Wolfe Connelly, and Castlevania by Becky Cloonan.
