She-Hulk #7 Micro-Manages A Rescue (Spoilers)

I'm thoroughly digging She-Hulk. She's struck out on her own, hanging a shingle and bringing in clients, both super and mundane.

New Marvel Game Gives Stan Lee Eleven Super-Powers. And Immortality.

No one likes to think about it but there will be a day when Stan Lee’s cameos will end. He may be an indefatigable 90-year-old but the co-creator of The Fantastic Four, Hulk and Spider-Man is still only human.

The weirdest political messages in the history of comics

Every now and again, comic book writers try to infuse superheroes' foibles with societal relevance or their own personal political beliefs.

The 1983 X-Men Coloring Book Is A Lost Psychedelic Masterpiece

When famous science fiction heroes make the jump to children's coloring books, usually the characters' dignity is jettisoned in the process. But such was not the case with the 1983 Uncanny X-Men Super Activity Book. Indeed, this unheralded tome — in which Magneto builds a frightening "Alphabet Beast" — may very well… » 9/26/12 12:25pm 9/26/12 12:25pm
