You're probably already familiar with Ryan North as the creator of Dinosaur Comics or the author of BOOM!'s Eisner award-winning Adventure Time series -- or possibly as the writer of the world's most in-depth critique of the novelization of Back to the Future -- but thanks to Kickstarter, he has another line on his resume: An author who decided his first attempt at a novel should be improving Hamlet.
And just how do you improve Hamlet? Easy. You turn it into an 800-page Choose Your Own Adventure style gamebook and raise enough money to stock it with illustrations by amazing webcomic artists, and make sure to actually put the pirate battle in there this time.

It always feels a bit like summertime in the Land of Ooo, what with Finn, Jake and all of their friends more or less having no proper careers or schooling to slog through, but Boom! Studios' Adventure Time #17 covers seem poised to do
Where some conventions skew more toward pop culture than comic books, this past weekend's Emerald City Comicon 2013 stocked Seattle with hundreds of prominent creators from every corner of the medium. ComicsAlliance
We've talked about Machine of Death before here at ComicsAlliance, covering the short fiction collection featuring some of our favorite webcomics creators, built around the premise of a machine that predict how you're going to die with 100% accuracy -- and a dark sense of humor. The original, independently published collection rocketed to the #1 spot on Amazon when it was released, and
At this point, I seriously doubt that anyone really needs to be told that Ryan North, Shelly Paroline and Braden Lamb's Adventure Timecomic is really, really good. It's been a smash hit since it debuted, and made appearances on almost everyone's Best Of 2012 lists, with good reason. It's consistently great, to th
Adventure Time fans have watched Finn and Jake try their respective human/dog hands at kingship before and it wasn't exactly their thing. In this week's Adventure Time #13 backup, "Princess of Rad Hats," by Chris Schweizer the pair of heroes ar
