Steve Conley has been making webcomics since 1998, when he launched Astounding Space Thrills. That makes him one of the early guys, out there on the digital frontier. (He’s also responsible, it turns out, for getting webcomics on the Eisner ballot in…

The second single from the new Monkees album, Good Times!, is “You Bring the Summer”. The first video used comic book art; this second one takes a limited animation approach. It made me happy. Particularly in the way they made a virtue of reusing certain…

As we’re all rewatching iZombie season 2 (right?), here’s a quick teaser of star Rose McIver talking about what she’s looking forward to in the upcoming season 3. I’d forgotten about the change in the character dynamics after the season finale, and she’s…

It’s taken me almost two years to talk about Jellaby: Monster in the City, the followup to Jellaby: The Lost Monster, because I found it such a weird change of pace. When we left Portia, Jason, and the purple monster named Jellaby, they were heading to…

At ICv2, I wrote about Wizard World’s first quarter financial filings. They turned a profit, a change from last year, but did so by eliminating events. Find out more at the link.

The delays for Dark Circle and Archie Horror are hurting the books. For Dark Circle, they were mostly disappointing stories. The Hangman had potential had it come out regularly, Black Mask turned into a mess, and The Sheild was a great concept that fell short immediately. The Shield was a major lost opportunity.

Alamo All-Stars is the sixth in the series of Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales, a wonderful true-history graphic novel series by Nathan Hale (really also the name of the author). As in the other books, the spy Nathan Hale, about to be executed, is telling…
