Before Adam WarRock arrived on the scene, songs about superheroes used to be a thing of camp. A few of them were outstanding -- like The Ramones's cover of the 1966 Spider-Man cartoon theme song -- but most are embarrassingly bad, like Vanilla Ice's "Ninja Rap" from "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze."
In conversation with British magazine Comic Heroes, writer Grant Morrison confirmed that one of his so-called "Multiversity" projects -- where he and various collaborators intend to explore some of the new DC Comics realiti
Let's face it, the "Watchmen" movie was a "love it or hate it" movie (or a "That's totally a naked blue dude"), but what if we told you things could've been a lot different? CBR's Kiel Phegley recently nabbed an exclusi
DC's Event Horizon panel, moderated by Ian Sattler, promised some big announcements but largely involved sharing bits of news about upcoming titles that we've already heard about before. Sticking around did pay off a little bit, though:
The big moment during the Q & A: when asked by a fan about
Due in large part to the historic falling out between DC Comics and Alan Moore, the creator's ongoing criticism of the state of the comics industry, and his deliberate disassociation (even financially) from film adaptations of his works, fans have traditionally
While some comics can properly utilize a little decompression to convey their respective intended meanings, there's definitely a time and a place for a faster pace. With that in mind, Wizzywig Comics blogger Ed Piskor h

Q: From Taryn (Age 8): Why are so many of Batman's villains psychiatrists? --Angry_Jake
A: An excellent question from a very perceptive young lady!
Whether a "Watchmen" sequel ever comes to pass is irrelevant - the brand is sure to continue on. It doesn't matter whether or not the film bombed at the box office, it nonetheless catapulted Rorschach, Dr. Manhattan and the others into mainstream status. So it should come as no surprise whatsoev
While we admit that the logo they came up with is actually pretty brilliant, we here at ComicsAlliance were pretty shocked by last week's announcement that "Watchmen," Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' deeply cerebral work about the nature of super-heroics in "real-world" situations, would now be represented as tiny plastic HeroClix figures.
We can only assume that the decision to do a "Watchmen" HeroClix set was motivated by the fact that action figures just aren't ironic enough, but hey: It could be worse! Even with the question of just what the Comedian's "attack" stat represents hanging over every 'Clix match, there actually are games that would be even less appropriate for the themes of the graphic novel, and ComicsAlliance's Chris Sims and Caleb Goellner are here show just what they'd be.
