3 Comic Kickstarters: Curse Words, Cosmic Detective, Octobriana 1976

The comic industry is in a bit of flux right now and the big publishers are looking less and less safe when it comes to getting works published.

Homestuck Book 1 cover by Adrienne Garcia

Homestuck^2: Beyond Canon is a Surprise Sequel to Homestuck

Homestuck ended three years ago. The seemingly endless webcomic embodied the vast weird, insularity of nerd culture on the internet. It referenced Choose Your Own Adventure text-based computer games, Science Fiction, l33t speak, spoofed yet invented its own memes, time travel, evil doppelgangers, cosmic wars, alternate universes and everything that geeks love. The series was […]

BC FCBD Roundup: Steampunk Intrigue with 'Lady Mechanika'

Steve Austin Vs. Ninjas and Nukes in "Six Million Dollar Man" #1 (REVIEW)

If I were in a position to advise anyone on how to adapt The Six Million Dollar Man to a contemporary medium, I would have a few "musts" that absolutely would have to be in place in order for the adaptation to work. Luckily, Dynamite Comics managed to get most of those down without me. […]

Atomic Robo VS. Academia in Dawn of a New Era #1 (Review)

[rwp_box_recap id="0"] Atomic Robo is hands-down the best comic featuring a century old robot that fights dinosaurs and teaches science currently on the market. If that sounds like veiled praise, it's not; pulling off a title as endearing as Atomic Robo would be a herculean task, and Robo creators Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener somehow […]

Titan Comics is the latest company to hold the license to publish Elric stories, and are about to release […]

In 1964 famed Twilight Zone writer/producer Rod Serling was asked to adapt Pierre Boulle's Monkey Planet for the big screen.
