Over a lifetime of reading comics, Senior Writer Chris Sims has developed an inexhaustible arsenal of facts and opinions. That's why, each and every week, we turn to you to put his comics culture knowledge to the test as he responds to your reader questions!
It had been known for a while that acclaimed Batman and American Vampire writer Scott Snyder would eventually collaborate with DC Comics co-publisher and mega-popular artist Jim Lee for a new Superman project, but it was only this week that the company confirmed the final details: Superman Uncha
This week, "Death of the Family" came to its conclusion in Batman #17, putting an exclamation point on the first big Joker story since DC's relaunch in 2011. Over the course of five issues, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo sent Batman's arch-nemesis after the Dark Knight's family of sidekicks, creating what Snyder called a "twisted love letter" from the Joker, designed to strengthen Batman by freeing him of "weaknesses" like Robin, Nightwing and even Alfred -- getting caught up in questions of secret identities and psychological scars along the way.
Now that it's all over, we spoke to Snyder about what he felt like he
Animated GIFs have been a big part of the internet for a while, but within the last year or so GIF artists have really upped their game. Case in point: thesetwo GIFs of recent Greg Capullo Batman covers from his and Scott Snyder's current "Death of the Family" storyline. They are both somewhat mesmerizing, in a
Out tomorrow is Batman #16, the penultimate chapter to Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's "Death of the Family" storyline, featuring Batman going up against the Joker in what is already guaranteed to go down as one of the more popular Joker stories in recent memory, if not ever. Already providing a few memorable moments, this upcoming i

The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon. It was a busy a
After he began his tenure in DC's New 52 by cutting off his own face and tacking it to a wall -- hands down one of the weirdest things he's done, which is saying something -- it was pretty clear that when the Joker returned to the pages of Batman a year later, it was going to be a pretty big deal for readers. Now the time has come in "Deat
Scott Snyder has had a busy convention. Yesterday DC Comics announced that Snyder and Jim Lee will be collaborating, for the first time, on a new Superman title in 2013. And at today's Vertigo panel, it was revealed that Snyder will team-up with his friend and previous collaborator Se
It's fairly safe to take the word "rising" out of the "rising star" description of Scott Snyder. After receiving critical acclaim for his award-winning American Vampire series for Vertigo, Snyder was hired to write Detective Comics, which was instantly considered one of the best super hero titles on the stands at the time. All of this led
Last April, Batman writer Scott Snyderstumbled upon a mystery of multiversal proportions: In the picture books for kids published by HarperCollins (but written and illustrated by a variety of creators), the same two characters -- one guy with brown hair and sideburns, the other with red hair, glasses and a soul patch -- show up in virtually every story. They're usually the cops that show up to haul the bad guys off to jail, but start flipping through those books and you'll see them as park rangers, bystande
