lazarus22-feat

This week, Lazarus makes its long-awaited return with Lazarus #22, as Greg Rucka and Michael Lark take us back to their all-too-plausible future dystopia of warring families, extreme class disparity and immortal assassins. Every piece on the game board is poised to get blown straight off, and a discovery’s been made that may change Forever Carlyle’s life for good…

If You Loved ‘Captain America: Civil War’, Read These Comics Next

Civil-War-Featured

Captain America: Civil War is in cinemas now, and everyone’s raving about its impressive set-pieces, complex themes and snappy banter. Marvel Studios and the Russo Brothers not only managed to make possibly the best Captain America film (and the best Avengers film) so far, but they told an awesome, tightly-plotted story that never felt bloated despite the number of characters demanding the spotlight.

The Captain America franchise has always skewed somewhat more toward espionage thrillers than your average superhero series, similar in tone to the Jason Bourne series or the modern day James Bond films. If you loved Civil War and want to try some comics in a similar vein --- but you’ve already read Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting’s Captain America run --- we’ve compiled a list of five of the best independent comics to try next.

The Lesser Of Fourteen Evils: Greg Rucka And Michael Lark On ‘Lazarus’

Lazarus, Greg Rucka and Michael Lark

Greg Rucka and Michael Lark's Lazarus has been one of the most exciting and compelling stories on the stands since its debut in 2013. Set in a future where nations have been dissolved and rebuilt as a world ruled over by fifteen families, the story follows Forever Carlyle, who serves as her family's Lazarus --- a highly trained soldier who can't be permanently killed, no matter how hard her enemies try.

Now, with major changes set to come for the book when it returns --- and with the impending release of the first Lazarus Sourcebook next week --- ComicsAlliance spoke to Rucka and Lark about the process of building their world, the extremes they're going to in order to tell their story, and what we can expect when the next arc, "Cull," begins in June.

On The Cheap: Image’s NYCC Sale Has So Many Good Comics Even We Can’t Narrow It Down

lazarus-feat1

To kick off this weekend's New York Comic-Con, Comixology is currently hosting a pretty massive sale on Image books, and look. I realize that the entire point of the "On The Cheap" column is to help you narrow down your choices into the absolute best of the crop, but this time, I honestly don't know if I'm up to the task.

I mean, there's just too much good stuff in there --- and what's more, it's almost all stuff that we've talked about a whole heck of a lot here at CA. Sex Criminals, The Wicked + The Divine, Southern Bastards, Criminal, and a whole lot more besides. It is, at last, too much to choose from. But I'll do my best.

Dystopian Sci-Fi Comic Series ‘Lazarus’ is Heading to TV

It was only just announced that Greg Rucka and Michael Lark’s exceptional comic series Lazarus was being developed for television, but allow us to be bold: if done properly, this thing will be huge. It’s from the same publisher as The Walking Dead, features enough intrigue and deception to make Game of Thrones feel weak in the knees, and takes place in a brutal, science fiction dystopia where the hero is a tough woman capable of kicking all of the asses. It checks all of the right boxes.

Planet Comicon 2014 Comic Creator Photos

Planet Comicon 2014 Photos
John Parker

Kansas City's Planet Comicon has steadily grown into what may be the biggest comics and pop culture convention in the Midwest. After spending several years in the Overland Park Convention Center, a mid-sized facility in a suburb of Kansas City, last year Planet Comicon moved to Bartle Hall, a much bigger facility in the heart of downtown. This year, the convention doubled in floorspace, drew cosplayers likes flies to vinegar, and brought in a litany of television and pop culture stars, including legendary rapper Darryl "DMC" McDaniels, pretty much the entire cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the puffy one himself, Sir William Freaking Shatner.

But this site is called ComicsAlliance, and what we really care about are the comics and the creators who make them. Click onwards for a sometimes-blurry Blackberry camera gallery of guests, friends, and artist alley residents of one of the fastest-growing cons in the country.
