Peter Bagge Hates Your Avatar in ‘Other Lives’ [Review]
Peter Bagge has one of the most distinct and talented voices in comics. So, it was with some surprise that "Other Lives," his new Vertigo graphic novel about virtual online worlds, felt so unoriginal. Reading "Other Lives" was like watching a depressing episode of "The Guild," but instead of the characters being charming and hilarious, they're unrelatable and serious
SHOW US YOUR PICS: Your First Comic Books
Over the weekend, we asked you, the ComicsAlliance readers, to tell us about the first comic you ever read -- and send us a picture of yourself with that comic. First, a big thank you to everyone who shared pictures and stories of their first comic experience -- the first time really is special, and it was truly heartwarming to read all the entries...
Show ComicsAlliance Your First Comic, Earn $10
Every comic fan remembers their first taste. The smell of the paper, the glossy cover, the colors, the characters -- something clicked in your brain and you realized this medium was for you. No going back. For me, it was Uncanny X-Men #171. I was visiting family, and being an easily bored youngster, my uncle went to get something for me to read...

Dash Shaw Speaks on ‘The Unclothed Man in the 35th Century’
Since Dash Shaw released his 2008 graphic novel "Bottomless Belly Button" -- a 720-page book about a family coming to terms with the divorce of their elderly parents that "New York" magazine called the greatest graphic novel of the year -- and sold his webcomic "BodyWorld" to Pantheon Books for print publication, there's been a good deal of anticipation in the indie w
The Best Webcomics of 2009
There are a lotta Webcomics out there, but there's only so much time in a given day. And during the holiday season, when you sneak off to "check your work email" as an excuse to avoid your mother asking "When you'll find someone nice to settle down with...
Ba and Moon Deliver in Vertigo’s ‘Daytripper’
Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá have come a long way in a short amount of time. The Brazilian twins landed in America to some acclaim with anthology projects from Image and Dark Horse. But it was "De:Tales - Stories from Urban Brazil" that really introduced the pair to industry, garnering critical acclaim from a variety of sources with a beautiful black and white tale that hinted at great pote
I Hate You Kanye West, But ‘Through the Wire’ Is Pretty Good
"College Dropout" by Kanye West is one of NPR's Most Important Recordings of the Decade, and for a good reason. Not only is the album catchy as hell, it embraced the moment where pop and hip-hop merged in the best of ways. But before he made "College Dropout," West was already a fairly established beat maker for Jay-Z, and also he was really sad about his life...
Porn, Women, and the Problems with Alan Moore’s ‘25,000 Years of Erotic Freedom’
I should start out by stating that I'm one of those openly sexual people. Perhaps it's my disdain for pants, or the corruption of my spirit by lesbians and marijuana users at a liberal arts college, but I'm genuinely interested in pornography...
