When it comes to Christmas comics, you can't really get around the fact that some characters lend themselves to holiday stories a little easier than others. Superman is essentially built around peace on Earth and goodwill to men anyway, Batman's themes of family and sacrifice are perfectly suited for a bittersweet Christmas tale, and Spider-Man shopping for presents is almost always a good recipe for seasonal comedy.
The launch of two new books saw the return of Marvel's cosmic titles at yesterday's Marvel Cup O' Joe panel at New York Comic-Con -- but we were told not to think of them as "cosmic" anymore. The panel led by Marvel chief cr

It's always a pleasure when a comic like this one comes along, and it's been a while, too.

Over the past week, Marvel has been releasing teaser images featuring some of their most prominent heroes being... well, shot up, burned to death, and otherwise murdered. It's pretty grim stuff, and it's prompted speculation that they were going to move right into their next line-wide crossover event hot on the heels of Avengers vs. X-Men. T
Like pretty much everyone else on the Internet, I've recently become obsessed with Draw Something, a casual game for iOS devices where players are invited to, uh, draw something for another player to guess.Even if it can be intimid
In an apparent effort to please the Chris Sims-level Punisher fans of the world, Marvel is sending Frank Castle to the stars once again this summer.
