Guardians of the Galaxy #1 hits stores today, a new series by Brian Michael Bendis and Steve McNiven that hopes to boost the profile of Marvel's space-faring super-team ahead of next summer's movie release, so that when your non-comics friends ask you, "Who are these Guardians of the Galaxy?", you don't answer, "the who-dians of the what-now?"
But... who are the Guardians of the Galaxy? They're actually talking owls from a series of fantasy novels about... no, sorry, my editor is telling me that is not correct. Let's see... the series tells the story of Jack Frost, Santa Claus, the Sandman and... no, I'm getting another note here, hang on... A talking raccoon and a tree? That can't be right.

Over the past few years, I've been completely thrilled by the new approach that Archie Comics has taken with their characters. The Life With Archie series, the introduction of Kevin Keller, crossovers with Glee and KISS, it's all been interesting to see, and pretty entertaining to read. But it's not the
Ah, romance! As Valentine's Day lingers on the horizon, it is once again time to turn our thoughts -- and our hearts -- to love. Or at least, the truly bizarre and occasionally downright mind-boggling version of love that appears in that most dubious of genres, the Romance Comic. Because really, you can't have enough s
Halloween is right around the corner, boils and ghouls, and that means that my fascination with the stranger side of comics veers ever so slightly towards the macabre. And for my money, there is nothing more laden with terror (and truly awesome comics) than Comicdom's #1 Fear Magazine, The Tomb of Dracula! So what better way to celebrate Halloween than with the most terrifying tale ever told about the Lord of the Vampires?
You know, the one where he fights a guy from outer space who flies around on a surfboard. That's scary, right?This titanic tussle happened in the page
Marvel Studios announced the full title of the next Captain America movie at San Diego Comic-Con International this weekend -- Captain America: The Winter Soldier -- but didn't go into any other details, like, for example, if Cap would be joined by any of his long-time allies from the comics. Now, E! News is reporting that actor Anthony Mackie is apparently in talks to play The Falcon in the upcoming film.Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon, was created by Stan Lee and Gene Colan, and m
As we head towards Valentine's Day, ComicsAlliance is offering up a daily tribute to love, as depicted in the somewhat dubious world of Romance Comics! Today's entry: Secret Hearts #107's "Heartbreak -- Take Me!"
In this novel-length tear-jerker from 1965, Robert Kanigher and Gene Colan tell the story of one Amy Ames -- The Listening Heart! -- an advice columnist who is fed right the f*** up with dealing with letters from teenagers about their dumb romance troubles. Now, I'm not saying that this characterization was definitely based on
As the artist of 70 issues of Marve's Tomb of Dracula, the legendary Gene Colan defined the look of the world's most famous vampire in comic books.
