Comics fans and illustration lovers were anything but disappointed in the first issue of IDW Publishing's Rocketeer Adventures, a four-issue miniseries featuring all-new tales of Dave Stevens' cult classic action hero by some of the most talented creators in comics.

On sale in July is the first issue of the all-new Daredevil series from Marvel Comics. Written by Captain America: Man Out of Time's Mark Waid with artwork by the incredible Paolo Rivera and Marcos Martin, Daredevil promises to be a heroic reinvigoration of the blind vigilante following a decade spent almost exclusively in noir territory.

Marvel Comics confirmed at Saturday's "Cup O' Joe" panel at C2E2 the relaunching of its Daredevil title with a new issue #1 from the new creative team of writer Mark Waid and artists Paolo Rivera and Marcos Martin. The series debuts in July of this year and will truly begin a new era for the Man Without Fe
This weekend, the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo kicks off its second year in the Windy City's McCormick Place. Sadly, none of the staffers here at ComicsAlliance are going to be in attendance this year, but in a bit of wishful thinking, we discovered that for a relatively new show, C2E2 has a lot going on.
So much, in fact, that it might be a little overwhelming, even for a seasoned con-goer.
Last week, renowned comic book writer and editor Mark Waid announced that he was leaving his position as Chief Creative Officer at Boom! Studios to focus not only on his freelance work as a comic book writer, but particularly on digital comics and experiments within the space of digital distribution. Long an outspoken supporter of digital comics -- often to controversial effect -- Waid talked with ComicsAlliance edi
