If you don't have kids or aren't something of one yourself, Skylanders is a weird display with toys that you occasionally see in the video game section of Target. For kids, they're a super-popular mix of toys and video games. How popular? Basically the "new" Pokémon. And now it's coming to comics for the first time.
IDW has teamed with Activision to start up a new Skylanders comic written by Ron Marz (Green Lantern) and with art by Mike Bowden (Ame-Comi Girls) and David Baldeon (Nova), with a #0 issue set to hit at San Diego Comic-Con.
With the wrap-up of writer Joe Keatinge's multi-artist "Strange Visitor" epic in Adventures of Superman last week, the series is nearing a full year of weekly, digital Superman stories. It's easily been the best, most daring Superman title DC Comics has been publishing in 2013 and 2014 (and not just because Superman gets to wear his real costume in it).

While DC's upcoming Flashpoint event is poised play out across an altered present, the publisher's also got plans to pay tribute to the past this July through August.

Perhaps due, in part, to ComicsAlliance's own support last week, the nonprofit group Imagination Station has raised, quiet rapidly, more than $50,000 to build and install a Robocop statue in the Motor City (despite the Twitter comments of Detroit Mayor Bing). The project's success has sparked its share of controversy, however, given the current econ
Two rival high school girls stand poised to reignite a superpowered World War II grudge match, and comic book fans won't have to turn a single page to watch the fireworks fly.
