Best Cosplay Ever (This Week): 03.16.15
Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions. In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

Bizarro Back Issues: 'The Brave and the Bold' #123 (1975)
I think I've made it pretty clear over the past few years that I'm something of a connoisseur of strange comic book stories. I love comics where things get weird with that sort of cheerful rejection of all logic, where things don't quite add up, but the truth is, I sometimes get to a point where I think I've seen it all. I start to get jaded, and think that nothing can ever match the weirdness tha

The New Teen Titans are doing the time warp again during this week's DC Nation block on Cartoon Network, with the 1960s-obsessed Mad Mod (and his TARDIS-like machine) giving the 2012 teen superheroes a righteous 1990s makeover. Yes, including a mullet or two, and yes, we have a clip under the jump to prove it...

Tom Kenny is back as DC's most formidable acid-enriched superhero in new Plastic Man shorts set to debut as part of Cartoon Network's DC Nation block on March 3. Reprising his roles in 2006's Plastic Man animated pilot "Puddle Trouble" and several episodes of the recently concluded Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Kenny's approach is a pretty fun departure from his Sponge Bob and Super He

The Art of J. Bone is Like a Playground for Your Eyes [Art]
J. Bone is a real artistic power tool, which is why DC Comics has put him to work on books like Batman: The Brave and the Bold and Super Friends. His style lends itself to bright, kid-friendly designs with a classic feel to them. He definitely knows how to pull off a vintage Darwin Cooke-looking twinkle, but at the same time he always makes his characters look fresh...

When Bad Guys Go Good: The Reformed Supervillain in Comics
Redemption is a tricky thing. How do people really atone for their transgressions? If it's really an eye for an eye, how could someone possibly make up for murder?
