Back in 2010 ComicsAlliance talked to Miguel Cima about Dig Comics, his short film blending anthropology and evangelism with the express aim of getting more people -- especially Americans -- to read and love comics of all kinds.

Steve Rude, an artist best known as the co-creator of "Nexus," can be an elusive and confusing subject, even to dedicated fans of the man's work. Very arguably one of the greatest comic book artists living today, "The Dude" has never assumed the "star" status afforded to many '80s contemporaries like Paul Gulacy, Dave Stevens and Matt Wagner. Rude is about to be the subject of a new
Given DC Comics fairly sweeping restructuring as it transitioned into DC Entertainment over the past twelve months, now seems like as good a time as any for Warner Bros. to take a look back on the more than 75-year history of its comic book publishing arm.
