The Tangent universe is a recurring feature in the third week of titles for DC's spring 2015 Convergence event, cropping up by name in the solcitations for the Flash, Justice League of America, and New Teen Titans two-part minis -- and "tangent" seems like an apt term to describe DC's impenetrable two-month event that offers all the confusion and frustration of a reboot with none of the narrative consequence.
Besides the Tangent universe, the other unifying theme of the third wave of books is that dig into DC's pre-Crisis On Infinite Earths past, with writer Marv Wolfman returning to the New Teen Titans, Len Wein taking another swing at his own creation, Swamp Thing, Diana Prince back in her modish 1968 white jumpsuit, and the return of the mid-80s Detroit Justice League.
We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.

All of it's awesome. In honor of this year's 75th anniversary of the first appearance of Superman and this weekend's release of Man of Steel, we present for the second time a compilation of some of the coolest portraits of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's brilliant creation that we've highlighted in this feature over the last few years. We know it's cheating but we didn't count on going away for a month and then coming back in the middle of a big media event. All-new next week evermore.
The Star Wars universe, not unlike superhero comics, has built up a massive amount of continuity over its 35-plus years in existence. The "Expanded Universe" -- a tapestry of Star Wars stories that take place around the events of George Lucas' film trilogies, in novels, video games, RPG sourcebooks, cartoons, Underoos, etc. -- is full of X-Men levels of off
Ever since Batman: Arkham Asylum hit consoles in 2009, I've been a pretty big fan of what Rocksteady's been doing with the franchise. The one exception has been the character design they've gone with for Harley Quinn. Every time I look a
Batman: Arkham City is almost mythical in its pedigree. Not only is it the sequel to what many consider to be the best licensed video game of all time (Rocksteady Studio's Batman: Arkham Asylum), it also exists in comic book form as a six-issue monthly miniseries from DC Comics written by Paul Dini and illustrated by Carlos D'Anda, two of the games' principal authors. On top of that, Batman: Arkham City is one of the few comics from a major publisher to be rel
In anticipation of Batman: Arkham City, the sequel to the hugely popular Batman: Arkham Asylum video game, DC Comics will release in May the first of a six-issue comic book miniseries that bridges the gap between the two games. Also called Batman: Arkham City, the miniseries is written
If there's one thing we learned from the latest batch of images from Batman: Arkham City, it's that the more awesome the game looks, the farther away release day is going to seem. At the moment, we're about a million billion years away from when Arkham City goes on sale, but we're relieved that the torturo
