The Marvel Comics line is about mid-way through its giant line-wide crossover event Secret Wars, in which reality has been rewritten by god-emperor Doom, and the heroes have been re-imagined more than a dozen times over in different domains paying tribute to stories from throughout Marvel's publishing history.
One of those domains is a version of House of M, another reality-rewriting crossover event that cast the Marvel heroes in different roles, which ran ten years ago. House of M launched the current era of Marvel events, kicking off a steady steam of universe-shaking storylines that continues into Secret Wars. To mark the tenth anniversary of House of M, and ten years of event-driven storytelling, we're asking you to determine which of these events was the very best.
We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations 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, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.
Leinil Francis Yu, Gerry Alanguilan, JB Casacop, Allen Geneta, and Mico Suayan are just a few of the comics artists who will be taking part in a huge art auction to raise money this weekend for their home country of The Philippines and for Bayan Knights co-creator Vergil Espinosa, who recently suffered liver failure.
The auction will be part of the annual Komikon convention in the city of Pasig, which is going ahead this Saturday in spite of the recent devastation of Typhoon Haiyan.
First issues are a challenge that the superhero comics industry still struggles to get right, which is weird when you consider just how many of these things they put out. It's as if a collective decision was made to misinterpret the old adage, "every issue is somebody's first," to mean that first issues should read like they're any other issues.
Among the many Marvel Comics characters who are part of the publisher's Marvel NOW relaunch initiative is of course the Hulk, who's now quite the star thanks to some scene-stealing moments in Joss Whedon's Avengers film. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1962, Bruce Banner and his destructive alter ego have gone
The latest Marvel Now! teaser promoting an "Indestructible" release kind of makes you do a double take. If it weren't for the distinctly green text and prominent Marvel Now! logo, fans might suspect Mark Waid and Leinil Francis Yu (Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk) were working on a new comic to follow Waid's other recent "I" titles
This week saw the release of Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting's Fantastic Four #600, celebrating not only six hundred issues of the seminal title but also more than fifty years since the book's debut. Hickman's run on Fantastic Four has been a definite highlight of the past few years of superhero comics, embracing the cosmic sco
In typically cryptic fashion, Marvel Comics released Monday morning a couple of teaser images designed to make us talk about future publishing events -- and it worked! The first image reveals a new logo for Uncanny X-Men, the venerable mutant series that relaunches in November with a new issue #1 by writer Kieron Gillen and artist Carlos Pacheco. The teaser features a fully visible Emma Frost standing in front of blacked out figures, one of whom appears to
Mark Millar's inaugural Kapow! Comic Con was by most accounts a good time for professionals and attendees, and naturally came with some juicy announcements of new projects. Among them, Nick Spencer and Emma Rios on a new Cloak & Dagger series for Marvel, and no less than four new creato
Just as the first issue of his new comics anthology CLINT sells out, writer Mark Millar (Ultimates, Kick-Ass) has announced an expansion of his comics entrepreneurship in the form of Kapow!, a new convention that he promises will bring the San Diego Comic-Con experience to London.
