Each week, ComicsAlliance’s Chris Sims and Matt Wilson host the War Rocket Ajax podcast, their online audio venue for interviews with comics creators, reviews of the books of the week, and whatever else they want to talk about. ComicsAlliance is offering clips of the comics-specific segments of the show several days before the full podcast goes up at WarRocketAjax.com on Mondays.
This week, it’s Chris is back from Emerald City and he's talking to Matt about three of the big comic releases of the week: Detective Comics #30 by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato, Dead Letters #1 by Christopher Sebela and Chris Visions, and Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #200 by Brian Michael Bendis, David Marquez and a bunch of other artists.
Kansas City's Planet Comicon has steadily grown into what may be the biggest comics and pop culture convention in the Midwest. After spending several years in the Overland Park Convention Center, a mid-sized facility in a suburb of Kansas City, last year Planet Comicon moved to Bartle Hall, a much bigger facility in the heart of downtown. This year, the convention doubled in floorspace, drew cosplayers likes flies to vinegar, and brought in a litany of television and pop culture stars, including legendary rapper Darryl "DMC" McDaniels, pretty much the entire cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the puffy one himself, Sir William Freaking Shatner.

Following the success of the recent Ghost miniseries from Kelly Sue DeConnick and Phil Noto, and increasing Dark Horse's efforts to develop their superhero comics, today the publisher announched the launch of a Ghost ongoing series. DeConnick will be returning, with Christopher Sebela joining her as co-writer and Ryan Sook providing interior art. Issue #1 will have a cover from Terry Dodson and a variant cover from Paolo Rivera, which you can view below.
This week on War Rocket Ajax, it's our three-days-late Valentine's Day show, and we're sitting down with Christopher Sebela to talk about his brand new Monkeybrain book with Ibrahim Moustafa, High Crimes. He'll tell us all about his fascination with Mt
We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much. The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon. It was a busy a
If you think you're fed up with the ghastly state of Hollywood horror, mystery and science fiction, where vampires are sunbathed supermodels with perfect skin and wolfmen are traffic-stopping adonises with chiseled abs -- and where everything else pretty much just sucks too -- then you should ask the real movie monsters how they feel. A werewolf, a c
In the world of Screamland, Hollywood isn't always kind to its movie monsters. It's cheaper to create a CGI beast than to nourish prima donnas with fangs and fur, after all. So when an invisible b-movie legend is found quite visibly murdered at a fantasy convention, it's up to his equal
We're equally entertained and disturbed when troubled starlets and maniacal (ex) sitcom stars go off the deep end. But no mere mortal's missed court date, botched rehab or other sort of meltdown can compare to the depravity of Screamland's Wolf M
