Back in March, I spoke with Kelly Sue DeConnick about the unorthodox creative process behind Dark Horse's new Prometheus/Alien/Predator comics. Essentially, DeConnick and four other writers -- Paul Tobin, Chris Roberson, Christopher Sebela and Joshua Williamson -- got in a room together and hammered out one big story that will be told in a collection of miniseries. DeConnick had a huge notebook in which she collected a sort of series bible.
Now, those comics are about to be released into the world, starting with Prometheus: Fire and Stone by Tobin and artist Juan Ferreyra on Sept. 10. Dark Horse has released a trailer that digs into the process a bit and reveals a little about one of the characters who will appear throughout the series, Angela Foster.
This week, Chris and Matt dig deep into Superman Unchained #7 by Scott Snyder and Jim Lee, and how it compares to last week's Superman #32. After that, they discuss the first issue of the new Legendary Star-Lord series by Sam Humphries and Paco Medina, and then they talk about the very weird new Robocop series by Joshua Williamson and Carlos Magno.
This week, Chris and Matt talk about how much they love Big Trouble in Little China, and how much they enjoyed the first issue of the new comic sequel by Eric Powell and Brian Churilla in spite of some art hiccups; then it's on to Nailbiter #2 by Joshua Williamson and Mike Henderson; and finally they discuss the first volume of Afterlife With Archie by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla.
This week marks the release of the first issue of Nailbiter, a new Image Comics series from writer Joshua Williamson and artist Mike Henderson that examines how a sleepy town in Oregon called Buckaroo could be the home to more than a dozen serial killers. Though the cover to the first issue is a rather shocking depiction of violence, the series itself is more than just blood and guts. Nailbiter digs deep into what serial killing does to the families and neighbors of the people who commit those crimes as much as it does the killers themselves.
ComicsAlliance sat down in a noisy concourse at this year's C2E2 in Chicago with Williamson to talk about Nailbiter, what inspired it, and how he's perhaps upending reader expectations.
My breakfast these days usually consists of a cup of coffee and that feeling of crushing despair that comes from a new Funky Winkerbean strip, so I'll freely admit that I might not be eating as healthfully as I probably should. It's just that I don't have time, you understand -- if I were to sit down with a bowl of cereal, there might be a few minutes at the start of my day where I wasn't thinking about comics.
Now, General Mills -- who I am reliably informed is not a new militaristic windmill-themed supervillain, which really seems like a missed opportunity -- has set out to correct that deficiency with its second teamup with DC Comics since 2011. Starting this month and running 'til the end of April, cereals like Honey Nut Cheerios and Trix are going to come bundled with new comics about the Justice League. And the thing is, they actually look really fun.
Scanning all the different Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series over the years, the most prominent characters are usually pretty consistent. Krang, though? That dude is kind of all over the place! Is he from Dimension X? Is he an Utrom? Did he used to kind o
This year's winner of the Eisner award for Best Anthology,Dark Horse Presents has been one of ComicsAlliance's favorite titles since it was relaunched in 2011 to continue the classic and influential series' tradition of showcasing emerging talent alongside some of the greatest writers, artists and cartoonists mainstream and underground comics has to offer.

(WARNING: Contains NSFW language)
I think it's fair to say that I've had my difficulties with the curent Justice League series. Ever since last year's relaunch, it just hasn't been doing much for me. This week, though, all of that changes. The
Image Comics hosted its traditional "Image Comics Show" presentation at New York Comic Con to highlight several new and upcoming series and give a large panel of creators and opportunity to promote their new books. Among those in attendance were Blair Butler, Josh
