ComicsAlliance Vs. The DC Comics Monster Cereal Redesigns

Cereal00

If there's one thing I've learned in a lifetime of reading, selling, making and writing about comics, it's that people who like comic books also tend to have a pretty healthy interest in breakfast foods. That, I assume, is why the people at General Mills decided to spice up their annual revival of the Monster Cereals -- Boo Berry, Franken Berry and the immortal Count Chocula -- with a set of redesigns for their principal characters, courtesy of artists Jim Lee, Dave Johnson and Terry and Rachel Dodson. In other words, your breakfast just got a New 52 reboot.

The whole thing is even marketed as a co-production between General Mills and DC, with the former presumably handling the cereal while the latter concentrated on art. Obviously, this means that these cereals are technically an edible DC Comics title, so with Halloween creeping up on us like a restless spirit, I have taken it upon myself to examine the new look for the spoooookiest of breakfast cereals to find out just how these new designs hold up to the originals.

Top Five Scariest Villains In Comics

Untitled-1

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 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 kicking off October's spoooooky celebrations with a list of five comic book villains who are actually, genuinely terrifying. Check it out, but beware -- it gets scary!

Funko/Super7

When Funko announced that they'd be teaming with Super7 to mass produce and distribute the 3.75" ReAction line, it seemed fan dreams of owing toys in the style of Kenner's 1977 Star Wars figures across both classic and contemporary pop culture licenses were going to come true. Little did anyone know just HOW true. Thanks to new images at Entertainment Earth, collectors can now have a look at what's going to be a busy 2014, with more than 60 total ReAction figures planned from movies including The Rocketeer, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Predator, The Terminator, Buffy the Vampire SlayerBack to the Future, Escape from New York, Firefly, Scream, The Goonies, Universal Monsters, Pulp Fiction, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Hellraiser, Trick 'R Treat, Halloween and The Crow.

Best Art Ever (This Week) – Halloween 2013 Edition

ComicsAlliance Halloween Best Art Ever 2013

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.

In honor of Halloween, we’ve compiled the darkest and spookiest selections from Best Art Evers past.

Hagrid and Annoying Orange Halloween Masks

Halloween is here at last, and at ComicsAlliance, that means we're gearing up for a night of costumes! It’s the one time of year when even people like me who could never cut it in our Best Cosplay Ever feature can drop by the local department store and walk out with the ability to dress up as our favorite characters.

But is that really a good thing? I have my doubts, which is why I’ve spent every day in October taking on the store-bought costumes inspired by our favorite things. Today, I'm diving into store-bought masks and their tendency to lean towards ABSOLUTE HORROR.

The Comics Alliance Reader Halloween Costume Spooktacular 2013

CA Reader Halloween Costumes

Today is Halloween, and as is our tradition here at ComicsAlliance, we have set out the bowl of candy, lit the Jack O'Lantern and invited our readers to send us pictures of their Halloween costumes for the express purpose of making fun of them. Seriously, we made that as clear as we possibly could, and still, a pretty solid number of our readers decided to take us up on the offer. Now, it's up to me to ruthlessly mock lovingly tease them for what is, to be quite honest, a pretty impressive display of creativity.

Seriously, this year's costumes are both incredibly fun and very impressive, but I'm not one to break a promise to make fun of something. So join us as we head out for our annual round of Trick-or-Treating with 15 Costumes from ComicsAlliance Readers!
