Everybody Goes Pog Wild In ‘Regular Show’ #12 [Preview]

Regular Show 12 Preview
Boom! Studios

If you're like most of us at ComicsAlliance, there's a good chance that you remember that fleeting year or so in the mid '90s when comic shops were overflowing with the heavily-decorated circular disks known as pogs, plus all of their prevalent slammer, mat and "pogtainer" accessories. Well, get stoked on a kind of resurgence next week as Regular Show #12 fills both physical and digital retailers with the flip-em-to-win-em items once again... only not quite the way you think. See how KC Green and artist Alison Strejlau have teamed to exploit your pogstalgia -- and, in many ways, warn a generation that hasn't experienced them of the wickendess of pogs -- with our first-look preview.

Best Art Ever (This Week) – 09.13.13

Untitled-1

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.

The Ultimate Powers Jam Makes The Best (And Weirdest) Of Random Rolls

My interest in rolling dice seems to be directly proportionate to the likelihood of encountering a gelatinous cube, so I tend to stick to the sword-and-sorcery genre -- and apparently, that has caused me to miss out on some truly weird stuff.

In response to ethical concerns raised about Marvel's much anticipated The Avengers film, which is based on characters co-created by Jack Kirby and other comic book professionals who (or whose estates) will not benefit financially from the hugely popular motion picture, cartoonist Jon Morris offered a thoughtful proposal for conflicted fans who are mindful of the situation but do not wish to boycott
