If you spend as much time thinking about comics as I do, you probably find yourself creating hypothetical-based thought experiments about super-team line-ups and such. Usually I only share them with Chris Sims, who then goes on to turn them into an Ask Chris and get paid for my idea. [cough]
But a few weeks ago, I took to Twitter to ask people who they would recruit for an all-female, seven-member Justice League. The response at the time was great, with lots of interesting variation in potential team rosters, but then the idea got a bump again when artists started posting drawings of their ideal Justice Ladies teams on Twitter and Tumblr.
I've collected nine such line-ups, including my own, which kicked everything off, but you can check my Twitter feed to see all the responses I received.
With hundreds of panels to choose from at San Diego Comic-Con, the show can be an overwhelming experience — and it’s far too easy to miss a panel you think you might have loved, or to find yourself on the wrong side of the con floor five minutes before a great panel is about to start!

The material will include at least two brand new serials a week and a mixture of previously published comics. After the serials conclude they will be released in print as graphic novels. This long-in-the-works initiative was made official at Friday's Oni Press panel at New York Comic Con, where Editor-in-Chief James Lucas Jones spoke more about the publisher's new projects from creators including Cullen Bunn, Joëlle Jones, Joe Harris, Brian Churilla... and Chris Sims.

You might think you know the real story of Count Dracula, but how much can be certain when our only account of the legendary vampire is a composite of multiple persons' different points of view? Who's to say Jonathan Harker wasn't a vicious liar? How do we know Van Helsing wasn't fiercely insane? Those are among the highly dubious positions CA writer Chris Sims has taken in order to create Dracula the Unconquered, a new comic book series that has the audacity to put forth not just the real story of Count Dracula, but also tell us what happened next. Spoiler: it involves a certain amount of rising from the grave, a certain a
It's been a little more than a week since we got home from Comic-Con, which means our bags are (mostly) unpacked and our lives have returned to whatever passes for normal in the blogosphere.
