This Magazine Kills Fascists looks at times that comic books and superheroes have dealt with tyrannical, corrupt and outright fascist world leaders — not because we think we can find a solution, but because art can provide inspiration in the face of oppression.
This week we’re looking at a Captain America story that serves up corporate corruption, Russian meddling in US elections, and out-and-out Nazis, in one unsavory package.
It’s that blessed time of the year where we all try to take stock of what we’ve done with our lives and what other people have created that we enjoyed. That’s right, it’s time to start putting together our “Best of 2016″ lists, and today we’re going to take a look at the Best Boom Studios Covers of 2016.
Next year will be the year of the Iron Fist, as Netflix launches its final solo Defenders series of the same name starring Finn Jones, and to capitalize on that, Marvel is launching a new Iron Fist ongoing next March.
Written by Ed Brisson with art by Mike Perkins, the series sees Danny Rand picking up the pieces after K'un Lun was destroyed, and discovering there's more than he ever knew to the history of the Iron Fist.
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.

Marvel fans disheartened by the announced cancellation of X-23, the ongoing monthly starring Wolverine's teenage clone daughter, can take heart in the latest announcement from the publisher. Not only is that book's star not going anywhere -- she'll be joining the cast of Avengers Academy -- but X-23 writer Marjorie Liu isn't going far either...
Because we're feeling the pull of the yuletide (whatever the heck that is), we decided to start a countdown to Christmas in the tradition of that old holiday standard, The 12 Days of Christmas. Except we shook it up, tossed it over to some of the craziest and most talented comics creators we know, and made our own version: The Twelve Days of Comic Book Christmas...
