Privacy And Isolation In Brian K. Vaughan And Marcos Martin’s ‘The Private Eye’


Internet privacy is easily one of the most confusing realities of life in the 21st century. It's the best ongoing story in collective awareness, complete with heroes, villains, victims and martyrs, turning points, and insane plot twists that regularly put The Good Wife to shame. PRISM, Wikileaks, Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, XBox One, social engineering, News International, Anonymous, and even our stupid Facebook updates are all involved. Every player and plot-line are all tangled up in a worried knot that gets bigger and more complex every year. It's all one story, and we're all living it; spectators, beneficiaries, victims, and contributors. It's one of the defining issues of our age, a still-forming zeitgeist that could be explored for years to come.

Just not in comics. Because nobody's going to top Brian K. Vaughan, Marcos Martin, and Muntsa Vicente's The Private Eye.

Best Art Ever (This Week): Edward Scissorhands, Hellboy, Go Nagai, Jurassic Park & More


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.

‘Batgirl/Robin Year One’ Collects Two Great Tales Of Batman’s Oldest Partners [Review]


Before you get too wrapped up in Zero Year, this Wednesday you'll have a chance to get caught up on Year One. Because that's how we do things in comics now: we go backwards. On sale this week is a brand new collection of two great Year One stories that sharpened up the continuity of their respective characters, and added new depth and clarity to backstories that were previously kinda flat and fuzzy. Batgirl/Robin: Year One gathers two separate miniseries that could each claim to be the definitive story for their Bat-family members: Robin: Year One by Chuck Dixon, Scott Beatty, and Javier Pulido; and Batgirl: Year One by Scotty Beatty, Chuck Dixon (same writers, different listing) and Marcos Martin. And let me tell ya, Batgirl and Robin are two great tastes that go great together.

Valiant To Relaunch ‘Quantum & Woody’ This Summer


Since the latest relaunch of Valiant Comics, many fans of the cult-classic series Quantum and Woody have openly wondered if a new series would be forthcoming. After Valiant released the entire run of Christopher Priest and MD Bright's original Quantum and Woody to ComiXology last fall, anticipation for a new series only grew further.

As of this morning speculation has turned into reality, as the publisher has revealed that a new Quantum and Woody series, written by James Asmus with art by Tom Fowler and Jordie Bellaire, will debut this summer with a cover by Ryan Sook and a variant cover by Marcos Martín. And, to the relief of many, Valiant has already promised there will be a goat.

Why You Should Be Reading ‘Daredevil’ [Review]


A few days ago, a friend of mine asked me if there were any new comics that he should be picking up, and when I immediately told him he should get Daredevil, he begged off. He told me that Daredevil's always been one of his favorite characters, but he just couldn't take seeing Matt Murdock's life get mercilessly, horrifically destroyed over and over again...
