Since the 1990s, the Hubble Space Telescope has been beaming images of stars, nebulas and galaxies back to Earth, giving us the best look anyone alive had ever seen at the worlds beyond our own Milky Way home. Our nearest neighboring galaxy, Andromeda, is but a mere 2.5 million light years from Earth, and though you can view it on a clear night without the aid of NASA's orbiting photography satellite, consumer-grade optics just don't have the same panache.
But thanks to Bioware and Mass Effect Andromeda, we don't really need it either. The latest entry in the spacefaring RPG series from EA's Bioware studio transports players to the Andromeda galaxy, presenting them not only with a whole new galaxy to explore, but some of the most awe-inspiring space imagery I've ever seen.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
This week's selection of the best cosplay ever includes Team Rocket, Jay Garrick, Katana, Korra, and more.
There's always been a seamless crossover between video games and comic books, and odds are if you're a fan of one, you're a fan of the other. Comics have been adapted into video games and vice-versa for almost as long as video games have been "a thing," and as both mediums have evolved, so too has the quality of those crossovers. With the holidays around the corner, we've put together a selection of some of the best video game related comics and art books for the gamer in your life.
In 1986, Dark Horse launched with an anthology title called Dark Horse Presents and a book called Boris the Bear. Thirty years later Dark Horse has gone from a small piece of the '80s indie boom to one of the biggest and most successful independent comics publishers in the industry. Along the way it has published Conan the Barbarian (and still does), Star Wars (but not anymore, despite doing great work with the license), and Mike Mignola's Hellboy universe (still a cornerstone of the line).
Now Dark Horse and Humble Bundle are celebrating the former's 30th anniversary with a really extensive Comics Bundle of Dark Horse books.
With such rich tapestries to draw from, video games provide cosplayers with incredible creative opportunities. We’ve compiled a massive collection of cosplay inspired by video game characters to celebrate the dedication and passion of these fans, with costumes that runs the gamut from the truly iconic to the downright obscure. Some of these costumes are simple and clean; others are dazzlingly complex; but each cosplayer brings a personal touch to these memorable heroes, villains, and side-characters. These are the best video game cosplays.
If you're heading out to Comic-Con International in San Diego later this month, well, you have my most sincere condolences. The good news, though, is that you'll be able to pick up plenty of convention-exclusive toys and books while you're there, and to entice potential customers, Dark Horse has released a list of everything you can find at Booth 2615 this year.
The list of products includes tie-in items for stuff like Mass Effect, Buffy and an exclusive Usagi Yojimbo print by Stan Sakai, but the real star of what's on offer is unquestionably Mike Mignola's Hellboy, which is featured two exclusive hardcovers and a plush doll featuring a Comic-Con t-shirt.
Ever finished a video game and then immediately wanted to read a comic about that game -- not just the one you bought, but the one you played, with all the choices you made? Way back in 2009, Apple developers apparently wanted the same thing, filing for a patent on a technology that would do just that...
Dark Horse has explored its share of the Mass Effect universe through a number of miniseries, 8-page standalone tales and art books, to say nothing of the interactive comics players use to kick off adventures in the ME2 and ME3 titles...
News: Underground comix legend Spain Rodriguez passed away earlier this week after a long battle with cancer. The Comics Journal's Patrick Rosenkranz remembers the 72-year-old artist, whose work mixed sex, violence, politics and social conscience, and helped to define and defend American counterculture for decades...
