Comic-Con: The Publisher Booths
When it comes to San Diego Comic-Con, every publisher approaches the show a little bit differently. Whether they house cosplay contests, interactive displays, photo ops with talent, creator signings and/or a whole lot of purchasable product, SDCC booths are an opportunity for the publishers that can attend to make a big impression on one of the most attended pop culture gatherings of the year.

‘Nemo: Heart of Ice’ Is ‘The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’, Streamlined [Review]
There's a downside to being a fictional character in heroic literature, aside from being beholden to the whims of an author or the deadly danger a character is so often subjected to. The role requires a certain remove from the rest of humanity, and warm, reciprocal relationships with others...

Top Shelf Announces Jess Fink’s ‘We Can Fix It: A Time Travel Memoir’
Time travel is an tricky adventurescape to navigate. Despite a hero or heroine's best intentions, they tend to leave a trail of bodies/fractured timelines/nearly-kissed mothers in their wake across fiction. Cartoonist Jess Fink, on the other hand, seems poised to avoid the pitfalls of her chronally displaced contemporaries in Top Shelf's upcoming graphic novel, We Can Fix IT...

James Kochalka’s ‘American Elf’ Is Coming To An End After 14 Years
Unless you count those Silver Age stories where Superman writes his memoirs in a giant golden book in the dead language of the planet Krypton, I've never been a huge fan of diary comics.

Set to run as a 12-episode season, SF focuses on a group of super-powered teens who are too busy sitting around annoying each other and otherwise being horrible to actually get around to fighti

James Kochalka’s ‘SuperF*ckers’ Animated Series Is Finally Here, Jack Krak Remains The MF [Video]
James Kochalka's SuperF*ckers is one of the funniest comics I've ever read, so I've been looking forward to the animated adaptation ever since it was announced. Produced by Cartoon Hangover, the adult-oriented side of Adventure Time and Bravest Warriors' Frederator Studios, the series of shorts has finally kicked off on YouTube, and it's just as gloriously foulmouthed and hateful as the original.
