Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie and Matthew Wilson’s Phonogram is a very special comic where music is literally magic and the right song played at the right time can take you to new dimensions or ruin your life forever.

Costume Drama: Reimagining The Original X-Men, Again

xcostume_featured

Welcome to Costume Drama, where we turn a critical eye toward superhero outfits and evaluate both the aesthetics and the social issues that often underlie them.

But it hasn't always been like this. Since she made her first appearance in a supporting role to a second-string hero on December 12, 1967, Carol Danvers has walked, flown, and fought her way along a twisting and often-confusing path.

When Marvel first launched its most recent line of Star Wars comics, it was obvious it would be big business for the publisher, but few would have correctly guessed that an original character not from the films would prove so popular as to get their own ongoing series. However implausible years ago, this December sees the launch of Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #1 by Kieron Gillen and Kev Walker, and Marvel have provided us with a first look at the first issue.
