It's no secret that we at ComicsAlliance dig the holiday season. Hanukkah, Christmas, Winter Solstice, you name it -- it's the best time of year to gift unwitting friends and family with sequential art! In that same spirit of giving, we've teamed with up Anthony "Nedroid" Clark to create a variety holi
No matter where you are this Christmas, we here at ComicsAlliance hope that you're spending some time with the people you love most, because that's what the holidays are really about. And for me, that means spending some time with Batman.
If hundreds and hundreds of holiday comics, TV specials and movies have taught us anything, it's that Christmas is a time of truly magical sights. And that even applies if you're somewhere like Gotham City, where"magical sights" tend to be the last thing you see before you're murdered by a mental patient or, if you're lucky, rescued by an equally terrifying vigilante. 'Tis the season for m
In our recurring feature, ComicsAlliance writer Chris Sims and a rotating cast of talented artists imagine a finer world to bring you a look at the Best Comics Ever that Did Not, Will Not, and occasionally Can Not Happen! This month, we're switching it up a little to bring you a special holiday themed installment every week, and for the last week before Christmas, Chris and artist Steven Sanders (Marvel's S.W.O.R.D.and Deadpool Team-Up) bring you a true Yule
I've been writing full-time for ComicsAlliance for almost a year now, but it was only a few weeks ago that I realized what may be the most important thing I've discovered since I quit my day job: Since I work from home, I can watch two hours of Walker, Texas Ranger every single day. And that has been a life
Despite the fact that a good chunk of my floorspace is taken up with long boxes and bookshelves, I consider myself more of a "reader" than a "collector," except for two things I hoard shamelessly: Christmas comics and Abraham Lincoln appearances. If I see Santa Claus or our 16th President in a comic book, I buy it -- no questions asked.
And as a result, I've picked up my share of Christmas stories that are truly bizarre -- and considering this is a weird little sub-genre that routinely features stories about Ultron being reprogrammed to give out toys, Batman stopping all crime in Gotham City by singing "Joy to the World" with the GCPD choir, and a Jack Kirby tale entitled "Santa's War Against the Seal Men," that's saying something. So this year, I've rifled through the comics under my tree to bring you The Five Most Insane Christmas Comics of All Time!
Earlier this month, ComicsAlliance brought you some yuletide cheer from one of our favorite artists when I put up the best Santas of his 2009 Santa Sketchfest. But like I said then, it's a yearly tradition, and this years have somehow managed to be even
Love it or hate it, the "Smallville" TV show has been one of the most popular mass media adaptations of a comic, reaching millions of viewers each week with stories of what Clark Kent's life was like before he became Superman. Now, we're mark
Every week, ComicsAlliance Senior Writer Chris Sims steps up put his knowledge to the test by answering your comics and comics culture questions! This week, it's a holiday spectacular, as we bring you The Ask Chris(tmas) Special!
