Archie Comics used to be defined by its rigid commitment to nostalgia and the familiar, but over the past few years the publisher has proved to be more than willing to shake it up and adapt their iconic characters across a variety of genres and concepts. Next year, Archie will publish four one-shots by a wide array of creators across a number of different genres, showcasing just how versatile it core cast of characters can be.
All-ages superstars Art Baltazar and Franco are back at DC for Super Powers, which is all about the super-heroes helping each other out, and all the silly things that happen along the way. Check out a preview of issue #1.
Two comics about the afterlife, and one comic with Composite Superman on the cover: December's going to be a good month for DC Comics.

Next spring, the wild world of the DC Super-Pets will finally see the addition of arguably the greatest hero to ever roam the pastures of Wayne Manor. Sure, everyone credits Ace the Bat-hound with keeping the grounds secure, but have you ever seen Ace do anything but curly up next to one of the 74 fireplaces the mansions holds? I thought not. No friends, the real hero of Gotham's green fields isn't a caped canine, but instead caped cattle.
Bat-Cow is the hero we deserve, and thanks to DC Collectibles, he'll soon be able to keep all your other Super-Pet plushes safer than they've ever been.
Boom Studios has been publishing a plethora of Adventure Time comics for years now, and as totallly mathematical as they are, the tone and style typically sticks close to the TV show. Now, KaBoom is launching a new ongoing titled Adventure Time Comics, which sees some of the most vibrant and unique voices in comics taking a crack at the Land Of Ooo while retaining their own styles and sensibilities.
Ahead of the Adventure Time Comics' first issue later this month, Boom has provided us with a look at all six variant covers, including an exclusive first look at Stephanie Buscema's variant, available only at Fried Pie Comics.

From October 1950, when the very first installments of Peanuts was published, every single installment of the strip was drawn by Charles M. Schulz's own hand, and the only variations in the style of the characters' depictions came organically through the evolution of Schulz's own drawing style. Even when the characters have appeared outside their home strip, in various animated specials or in the Dell or Boom comic books, the animators and artists have closely aped Schulz's style.
That's what makes Boom Studios' new Peanuts: A Tribute to Charles M. Schulz so compelling. It's difficult to imagine what any other artist's version of the iconic characters might look like, but this book is full of them, and being faced with these characters divorced from their creator's designs is fascinating and at times even disconcerting. It's hard to look at the realistic image of Charlie Brown by Ryan Sook on the cover of the book, staring into the eyes of the "real" Charlie Brown, and not be a little freaked out, isn't it?
