Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.

In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

Mezco Bringing More DC Heroes, Star Trek to One:12 Collective

Mezco's One:12 Collective at SDCC

Mezco's One:12 Collective hasn't been around very long (just one released figure, and one shipping soon), but it's already made a major impression on collectors. Featuring incredible articulation, real fabric costumes and a wealth of accessories, Mezco has seemingly brought the same kind of quality and experience you'd expect from larger, more elaborate (read: expensive) collectibles to an affordable scale that fits in with most other figure lines.

As the first entry in the brand, the Dark Knight Returns Batman may have set an impossible bar for Mezco to meet again, but that doesn't mean the company isn't trying. At San Diego Comic-Con this year, Mezco revealed a partial upcoming slate of figures it has planned for 2016, including more DC heroes, and some interesting surprises. Though only in prototype form, the pieces look to continue what Mezco started, and evolve the One:12 Collective into more than just a flash in the pan.

Bizarro Back Issues: The Haunting Of The Starship Enterprise (1980)

Star Trek #4, Marvel Comics

Around Halloween, there is nothing I like more than a comic where horror elements start to creep in when they clearly have no business being there. I mean, I'll gladly read eighty issues of Tomb of Dracula and I love plenty of comics that are just Hellboy grumping at werewolves, but if you give me a comic where all the spookums and haints show up out of nowhere and start hassling Spider-Man or somebody, I am delighted. That's why I was pretty interested when pal and occasional ComicsAlliance contributor Kevin Church suggested that I add Star Trek #4 to my annual scareathon, mostly because he sold me on it by telling me it was the comic where the starship Enterprise found a haunted house. In space.

He wasn't kidding: This is a Star Trek comic where the Enterprise finds a haunted house in space. And that's after Dracula shows up.

Komboh’s Posters Bring A Sharp Design Sensibility To A Zelda/Adventure Time Mashup, The Iconography Of Star Trek, And More

Considering how prevalent it's become in the art you see everywhere on the internet -- including the hated Here's Two Things genre that has fueled the mindless engine of destruction that is online t-shirt sales -- it's always tempting to say that we've had enough of minimalist, graphic-design inspired takes on pop culture. The thing is, when it's done well, it's always fantastic, and Komboh does it very, very well.

Komboh, the collective term for artists Michael W. Mateyko and Hans B. Thiessen, have done an incredible job bringing their design sensibility to stuff like Star Trek, Doctor Who, and posters that promote reading, and they've even done a great job mashing up Adventure Time and The Legend of Zelda. Check out a few of my favorites below!

Original Harlan Ellison ‘Star Trek’ Episode Script Gets A Comic Book Miniseries At IDW

The City On The Edge Of Forever Star Trek Harlan Ellison main
IDW

With its dramatic tale of time travel trauma, "City on the Edge of Forever" is widely considered one of the best episodes of the original Star Trek TV series, but what made it to the screen was quite different from sci-fi writer Harlan Ellison's original script, which was too long for a one-hour TV show and had far too many speaking parts for the production budget.

Comics don't have those restrictions, though, so IDW Publishing is taking Ellison's full, original teleplay and adapting it into a comics mini-series, starting in June. It'll be written by Scott Tipton and David Tipton, and with interior art by J.K. Woodward. Juan Ortiz will be the artist on the main covers, which give the series a sort of pulp-novel look, while movie poster artist Paul Shipper will be on variant covers. Ellison will serve as a sort of consultant.
