Williams III is a visual punch (the splash page has never looked so good) and the writing from W. Haden Blackman has kept the excitement of the unknown that Greg Rucka brought to the character […]

Saga, Brian K. Vaughn’s return to comics coming next month; Star Wars artist misses the point

Go-Go-Gaijin: ComiPo! Vocaloid For Comics!?

Maybe this software should be called “Comicoid”, because after five minutes of tinkering with it I realized right away who this software was for. Vocaloid, the hit music software that allows musicians and composers to create vocals for a singer-less song, took Japan by storm and has been a huge inspiration to up-and-coming songwriters. I […]

Adam McKay shopping big names for The Boys

If you haven’t read Garth Ennis’ excellent The Boys, you should turn off your computer and go pick up the first volume. You will laugh, be sickened, and have a blast doing so. In an interview with MTV, director Adam McKay (Anchorman, The Other Guys) discussed the actors he hopes will step into the lead […]
