Steve Niles has made something of a career in comics out of figuring out interesting new ways to let vampires just hang out all the time without being boxed in by those pesky fatal sunburns that come from daylight. His breakout hit was, after all, 30 Days of Night alongside Ben Templesmith, a book that was built entirely around that premise and resulted in a pretty fun read. But once you've gone there, you're left with a question of where to go that's even bigger. For Niles and Nat Jones, the answer is clear: You nuke the moon.

Welcome to Recon:Vergence, a weekly look at what’s going on throughout DC’s new reality-smooshing event storyline, Convergence.
Every week until the end of the event, every comic DC publishes will be a part of this giant storyline – and it’s a little confusing, especially for new readers. To help out, we’re going to provide a timeline of events, let you know which Universes are still in the fight, and try and keep everything on track
The first thing I saw when I went to check out Isaac Lenkiewicz's art was a post about how he messed up his hand falling off a skateboard, so even before I got too far, I was pretty sure I was going to like what he had to offer. Turns out, I was right: The stuff he posts at his website, including short comics inspired by Die Hard, sumo-wrestling giants and Bart Simpson fighting a vampire with a skateboard? Turns out that is exactly my jam, and "Challenge Bear" might be my new favorite character.
Check below to find some favorites, including an entry from his pixel art blog!
Q: Would you rather your vampires and other monsters explained through magic, religious, or scientific contexts? --@CineastBenRowe
A: You know, Benny, I was all set to dive into another question I had this week about what was the best Ghost-Type Pokémon, but the more I looked at the questions I was getting, the more this one stuck in my head. I guess you could say it... haunted me. Haunted me like a Gengar, which, while actually a dual-type Ghost/Poison Pokémon, definitely qualifies and is really pretty awesome and creepy when you start reading all the stuff about how it was originally intended to be a ghostly doppelganger of Clefairy back before kids decided that they liked Pikachu about a thousand percent more than any other Pokémon. I've had a keychain of one since the tenth grade.
Oh, right, your thing. It won't surprise you that I have a pretty definitive answer, but it might surprise you to find out what that answer is.
Penciller, inker, colorist and painter Brian Stelfreeze is a longtime favorite of art and illustration enthusiasts. Beloved by a generation of readers for his memorably stunning run of painted covers for Batman: Shadow of the Bat in the 1990s, Stelfreeze's work is at once luscious and razor sharp, flying off the page (or screen) in hypnotic, ultra high contrast black and white or in a frenzy of electric, eccentric color...

Before she stepped down as ComicsAlliance's Editor-In-Chief, Laura Hudson -- the chief architect of my misery over the past three years -- made one final edict. When Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 was released, I would be required to finish what I started and write a review for ComicsAlliance...
