What a week! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to sit back and read some comics. The weekend is finally here, and the world can relax and rest once more — but the comics industry has been busy too, you know, and the last seven days have seen a flurry of comics-based news and announcements fly past at high speed.
ComicsAlliance has got your back, though: when it comes to comics, we never slow down, so here’s a look back and just what’s been going on. New comics, new stories, new podcasts, new art being made — it’s all part of the ComicsAlliance Weekender!

Today, on the eve of America's annual celebration of its independence, Oni Press releases a hardcover collection of a comic about one of the nation's greatest unsolved mysteries. Well, it was unsolved, until Brian Churilla revealed The Secret History of D.B. Cooper.
The "Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World" trailer is finally out and our world is pretty effectively rocked. After months of promo images, teaser videos from the set, early reviews and finally a full-fledged movie poster, expectations have been high and so far the film seems like it will likely deliver and then some - especially considering that after our umpteenth viewing, we're still detecting new details (no matter how small) that keep our heads buzzing...
