Dark Horse Announces A 1,232-Page ‘Masters Of The Universe’ Minicomic Collection


If you were into He-Man and the Masters of the Universe back in the '80s, then you might remember that the toys came with minicomics that provided some additional story about bare-chested heroes fighting equally bare-chested (and surprisingly muscular) skeletons --- and if you were really paying attention, you might recall that those comics featured some early work from legendary creators like Mark Texeira and Bruce Timm.

If that's the case, you might be tempted to dig through toy bins at conventions and try to put together a run yourself, but fortunately, Dark Horse is saving us all the trouble. This October, it's releasing the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Minicomic Collection, a whopping 1,232-page hardcover that collects every single minicomic from the classic toy line, bumped up to 6" x 9" and presented in production order.

Bizarro Back Issues: Wait, What’s Vampirella’s Deal Again? (1997)

Vampirella Master Series v.1

Of all the spooky characters that I throw the spotlight on at Halloween, there's one that I've never really written too much about: Vampirella. That seems like a pretty big oversight, too. I mean, I once wrote about the Tomb of Dracula anime for Halloween, you'd think I could muster up a few words for one of the most recognizable horror characters of the '70s, right?

Well, the fact is, Vampirella's not actually that scary. I mean, despite her name, she's not actually a vampire. She's an alien from planet Drakulon, a planet where water has the same composition as blood. Or at least, I think that's how it worked, until 1997, when it was revealed that Drakulon was the product of memory implants and she was actually the daughter of Lilith, mother of all vampires, who sent her to destroy a 2,000 year-old conspiracy organized like a vampire Catholic Church (complete with a Vampire Pope) with the help of a time-traveling nun. Hoo boy. This is going to get complicated.

‘2 Guns’ Earns Writer Steven Grant A Major Payday


This Friday, 2 Guns, a movie about two undercover drug agents who begrudgingly have to work together and that stars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, opens in theaters. Most people who see it won't have any idea it was based on a comic book by writer Steven Grant and artist Mateus Santolouco. And yet Grant probably made more money from selling the movie rights than anyone who's written a Wolverine comic will make from The Wolverine, The New York Times explains.
