Theodore Geisel, AKA Dr. Seuss, is one of the world's most beloved authors and illustrators, a man who, over the course of six decades, worked as a cartoonist, screenwriter, and commercial illustrator – but whose claim to immortality rests on his role as creator of some of the world's most beloved picture books. From The Lorax to Bartholomew Cubbins to Thidwick The Moose to The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, his characters have become part of the language and landscape of American culture, and his knack for metered rhyme and invented language has influenced generations of creators.
And though Geisel passed away in 1991, next week, Random House Children's Books releases a brand-new Dr. Seuss book entitled Horton And The Kwuggerbug, which collects a quartet of long-lost Seuss short stories that originally saw print in the early 1950s in Redbook magazine.
With the fourth season of The Walking Dead set to kickoff on October 13 on AMC, fan anticipation is building to see just how the TV show will continue to adapt Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard's zombie comic series. The show's already zigged where the comic has zagged a bit and the differences could continue to become more pronounced in new episodes. Waiting to see what takes shape next month, Cinefix has created a TWD season three recap video in the style of a Dr. Seuss storybook. While it's meant to present high-contrast humor, using Seuss-style rhymes and artwork to convey survival horror, it's actually a fairly solid general recap in its own right. It also reminds comic fans not to spoil the show for those who aren't hip to 114 and counting issues of continuity. Check out "The Seussing Dead" after the jump.
Like a lot of people, I grew up with Theodor Geisel, alias Dr. Seuss, as a huge part of my childhood. Books like Cat in the Hat and Oh, The Places You'll Go helped me learn how to read, and the Chuck Jones version of How The Grinch Stole Christmas! is still a holiday tradition at my house. But until this week, I had no idea that two year
When talented artists engage in friendly competition using Top Chef-esque ingredient prescriptions, everyone wins. When those ingredients are Pokémon and the work of Dr. Seuss, things really get legendary, though. Make

The whimsical speech of Jedi Master Yoda may have progressed from endearingly eccentric to Jar-Jarringly annoying in recent years and in recent films, but the 900-year-old's memorable dialogue and that of other characters from the Star Wars saga has been somewhat redeemed by cartoonist Adam Watson with some inspiration from an unlikely source: Dr. Seuss,w
If you've grown up reading comics and weren't alive during the 1930s, then deciding to fight Nazis at every opportunity probably seems like the most natural thing in the world to you. But it wasn't always so readily agreed upon
By now, you're probably pretty well acquainted with the art of Ryan Dunlavey. From his rather impressive stint with Fred Van Lente on "Action Philosophers," which I should mention got me through Western Civ 2 in college, to his spot-on nerd party art, the way that man has his way with lines should almost be illegal.
