Mulder and Scully return to solve the mystery of This Week’s Comics!

What is the terrifying truth behind this week’s comic releases? I don’t have the faintest clue. I do, however, know that The X-Files is finally back thanks to IDW, continuing right where it left off. Plus a new Marvel event begins, a beloved Vertigo tale ends, and BKV's Saga continues, all in this week’s comics! » 6/18/13 2:50pm 6/18/13 2:50pm

And now, Frankenstein dogfighting Nazis over London in 1941

And he's in a downright terrible mood. For the final issue of the military comic Men of War, DC Comics has tapped both present and future Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. writers Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt for the story of a one "Project Green Man." Courtesy of DC, here's an exclusive sneak peek at the craziness. » 3/28/12 1:10pm 3/28/12 1:10pm

In this week's comics, the Defenders and Voltron return, and Moebius…

A lot of nifty stuff is hitting the stores tomorrow, but let's just pause for a moment and reflect on the innate weirdness of Alex "Epic Realism" Ross painting Voltron. Goodness, that's bizarre. Not as weird as his League of Extraordinary Gentlemen/30 Rock mash-up, but still plum hilarious. On to the comics! » 12/06/11 9:55am 12/06/11 9:55am

Read an exclusive sneak peek of Vertigo's post-apocalyptic manimal…

For the past two years, one of the most consistently readable comics on the stands has been writer/illustrator Jeff Lemire's end-of-the-world fable Sweet Tooth. Lemire — whose work you may know from books like The Nobody and Animal Man — tells the tale of Gus, an antlered boy born after a mysterious disease wipes out… » 12/05/11 6:20am 12/05/11 6:20am

Read an exclusive, viscera-and-guts-filled preview of DC Comics' Animal …

We've been immensely fond of Jeff Lemire and Travel Foreman's relaunch of the famously trippy comic book Animal Man. Now, courtesy of DC Comics, here's an exclusive sneak peek at next Wednesday's issue. » 12/03/11 10:30am 12/03/11 10:30am

In this preview of DC's Frankenstein, a vampire with a machine gun…

One of our favorite comics to come out of DC's New 52 relaunch was Jeff Lemire and Alberto Ponticelli's Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E., a gleefully deranged horror/science fiction/espionage hybrid starring a poetic patchwork monster and his crack squad of paramilitary monsters. Here's an exclusive preview of the… » 11/02/11 2:15pm 11/02/11 2:15pm

Who's the big winner of DC's relaunch so far? Animal Man

Last Wednesday, DC's fired off its first salvo of relaunched first issues. Of the thirteen rebooted books, some worked, a bunch didn't, and one debut absolutely knocked it out of the park. That comic was Jeff Lemire's and Travel Foreman's superhero-horror yarn Animal Man. » 9/11/11 10:45am 9/11/11 10:45am

Jeff Lemire tells us about the post-apocalyptic manimals of Sweet Tooth

Jeff Lemire is the creator of the acclaimed Vertigo series Sweet Tooth, which follows Gus, a nine-year-old, half-deer boy growing up in a post-apocalyptic America ravaged by a mysterious plague. We spoke to Lemire about building this zoologically screwball world. » 12/07/10 10:55am 12/07/10 10:55am

Thunder gods and foul-mouthed fairy tales hit comic stores this…

There's a lot of interesting reads in your comic shop this week, such as reprints of classic Planetary crossovers, the return of Odin in Matt Fraction's Thor, the 100th issue of Fables, and much more! » 12/07/10 9:07am 12/07/10 9:07am

Thursday comics herald the return of the Young Avengers, Casanova, and …

For this Thursday's comics, Marvel brings back a ton of high-profile heroes who've been on sabbatical. How high-profile? We're talking Steve Rogers, the Young Avengers, Matt Fraction's suave bastard spy Casanova Quinn, and Mick Anglo's lawsuit-prone Marvelman. That's a line-up. » 7/07/10 10:30am 7/07/10 10:30am
