Over the past few weeks, Comixology has done a pretty amazing job of staying on top of DC's Convergence event with a string of sales based on the different eras that were brought into Bottleworld to fight it out. This week marks the end of Convergence and, along with it, the end of this particular set of sales, but they've decided to go out with a bang. In addition to some classic Bronze Age Justice League and fun, continuity-bending Booster Gold, they're shining the spotlight onto one of the greatest --- and most underrated --- DC books of the 21st Century: Kyle Baker's Plastic Man.
Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.
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.
I think I've made it pretty clear over the past few years that I'm something of a connoisseur of strange comic book stories.

I start to get jaded, and think that nothing can ever match the weirdness that I've already seen. But every time, I run across a story that makes me realize that in all my years, I've only hit the tip of the iceberg of bizarre stories. And it usually happens when I'm reading a Bob Haney comic.
Case in point: Bob Haney and Jim Aparo's "How To Make A Super-Hero," where the World's Greatest Detective decides it would be a good idea to let a homeless Plastic Man fill in for him while he's out of Gotham City, and guess what? It goes horribly wrong.
The New Teen Titans are doing the time warp again during this week's DC Nation block on Cartoon Network, with the 1960s-obsessed Mad Mod (and his TARDIS-like machine) giving the 2012 teen superheroes a righteous 1990s makeover. Yes, including a mullet or two, and yes, we have a clip under th
Much as fans are surely enjoying new episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series and awaiting the start of the second season of Young Justice in April, DC Nation's creative anthology-style animated shorts have served as the glue that holds Cartoon Network's new program block together.

Mattel's DC Universe Classics line will wrap with its 20th wave in a few months, but it's not so much the end of the line as a rebranding shift, with more of the toymaker's 6" superhero figures being released through the DC Comics All-Stars line in 2012. As revealed tod
One of the great things about cartoons like Justice League Unlimited and Batman: The Brave and the Bold has been that they've used the star power of characters like Superman and Batman to shine a light on a few of DC's lesser-known properties. What's interesting, th
J. Bone is a real artistic power tool, which is why DC Comics has put him to work on books like Batman: The Brave and the Bold and Super Friends. His style lends itself to bright, kid-friendly designs with a classic feel to them. He definitely kn
