When Marvel announced that this year's big summer event comic was called Infinity, I considered faking my own death. I mean, it sounds a bit much, doesn't it? "Infinity?" As in, "having no end?"

A few folks (including Daredevil writer Mark Waid and ComicsAlliance's Chris Sims) have referred to elements of director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel as "disaster porn," but just how much damage is actually dealt by Superman, Zod and company in the movie?
In a somewhat surprising but certainly welcome move from the once resolutely periodical-based Marvel Comics, the House of Ideas has announced plans for a new line of original graphic novels presented in an oversized format with what the publisher describes as "sophisticated packaging and design." Labeled "Marvel OGN," the line'
Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes fans may not have been able to pick up their favorite Marvel heroes and villains as part of a proper toy line, but it looks like Hasbro will be releasing Avengers Assembleaction figures right out of the gate. T
What happens when you mix Steve Rogers, Harvey Pekar and James Kochalka together? Apparently, the answer is Steve Rogers' American Captain, a fictional diary comic by America's favorite super-soldier that helps him try to make sense of the world in which he's woken up, sixty-plus years after ending up frozen after fighting Nazis.
