The CW has a thing. It’s a thing that a lot of people like, mind you: iconic characters played by ridiculously good looking people, interpersonal drama, cheesy voiceovers, and dialogue just slightly above groan-inducing. But hey, the formula works. It worked for Superman in SMALLVILLE, it worked for Oliver Queen in ARROW, and now fastest-man-alive [...]

I am not, in general, a television enthusiast. I watch movies and the occasional series on DVD, but I never watch cable or TiVo live events or sit down during dinner in front of a network TV show. It’s just not on my radar. I am, however, a HELLBLAZER enthusiast, as well as a Neil [...]

THE WEIRDING WILLOWS VOLUME 1 (TITAN): The literary-mashup-thing has been done many times, most often with rights-free adventure stories of the 19th century, so you can’t blame me for being wary about Dave Elliott’s WEIRDING WILLOWS, which puts Alice, Peter Rabbit, Dr. Moreau, Mowgli, Frankenstein’s monster, and a slew of other classic characters into a [...]

You may not know it yet, but Simon Spurrier is your new favorite writer. I didn’t know it either, see. He took me by surprise. Years ago I stumbled upon some issues of a crazy comic series called GUTSVILLE that actually involved a civilization in the belly of a whale. It was the craziest and [...]

BALLISTIC #5 (BLACK MASK): It’s over. Sniffle. But Adam Egypt Mortimer and Darick Robertson’s BALLISTIC goes out with multiple bangs, as Gennie morphs into a new super-being, Butch and his Gun ride a skeletal catbus, and our ultimate villain is actually a conglomeration of many heads (gene sequences, natch). The most satisfying bit is that [...]

Darick Robertson is one of my favorite people in the world. He’s the artist on what might be my favorite comic series of all time—TRANSMETROPOLITAN by Warren Ellis. He let me into his head during the creation process of Grant Morrison’s HAPPY! for our print issue #274. He’s busted his balls on the insanely crazy [...]

SNOWPIERCER Writers: Joon-ho Bong, Kelly Masterson Director: Joon-ho Bong Starring: Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Kang-ho Song, Tilda Swinton Release Date: June 27 (select theaters) Distributor: Radius/The Weinstein Company (USA) I’ve always been of the opinion that “original concepts” are overrated, especially in Hollywood. Every great movie ever was based on a book—or at least pieces [...]

Have I mentioned lately how much I love comics? Just sampling the variety of line work, coloring, and character design in the following four previews makes my mind boggle at the talent involved. And there’s something for everyone: science fiction sprawl, timeless fantasy, horror-mystery, and psychadelic monster drug trips. If these titles aren’t on your [...]
