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
In this week's episode of War Rocket Ajax, we welcome Jason Aaron back to the show to talk about his new work with Esad Ribic on Thor: God of Thunder!

The legendary writer has spent quite some time voicing his vehement opposition to the practices of DC, Marvel, and mainstream comics publishing in general, but what has bothered many is Moore's dismissive tone toward current creators, as he often illustrates that he has little to no regard for the work of any writers who have come up in recent years

Among the many Marvel Comics characters who are part of the publisher's Marvel NOW relaunch initiative is of course the mighty Thor, who's now quite the star thanks to actor Chris Hemsworth's excellent performance in Kenneth Branagh's live-action film and some scene-stealing moments in Joss Whedon's Avengers.

Devised by the Ignition Sequence (Isotope proprietors James Sime and Kirsten Baldock and iFanboy co-founder Ron Richards) MorrisonCon was first announced in January as a kind of hip, forward-thinking antidote to the organizational chaos and overt commercialism of the traditional comic book show. A collaboration with preeminent superhero comics writer Grant Morrison, the event was also p
This is the twelfth and final installment of ComicsAlliance Vs. AvX, our unofficial scorecard for Marvel's big summer publishing event, Avengers Vs. X-Men. Jason Aaron is your writer, Adam Kubert is your penciller, and I am your humble score-keeper, one last time.
Round twelve! From the shores of Subt
Ever since it spun out of the events of Schism, Wolverine and the X-Men has been hands down the most entertaining X-Men title on the stands, and easily one of the most enjoyable comics I read, period. With this month's issue, though, it somehow manages to get even better as Jason Aaron, Mike Allred and Laura Allred finally
