Since moving back to the Midlands last August, I’ve been working part-time at my local comics shop. They just moved to a new location, and I’m using my bookselling, librarian, and organizational skills to help get their backstock in order, and to sell more comics! In the process of filing multiple variant covers of the […]
Don’t know what to check out? How about a free sample before your free comic hunting begins? We’ve got art from the FCBD issues of two popular Titan Comics titles: Doctor Who and Assassin’s Creed.
Back in 2012, after Hurricane Sandy, I had a week-long furlough caused by a lack of electricity at my office near Union Square. That’s when I created this crazy idea: Read comics over a period of 26.2 hours, or read 1,572 pages of comics while doing nothing else.

It’s getting tougher all the time, as Paul McCartney would’ve likely sung if the Beatles had reunited for a jaded comeback tour in the 1990s. All you want in life is for Stephanie Brown to get just one bit of respect, but time and time again your dreams are shatteringly recoloured at the last moment. And […]
Nothing is safe anymore, is it? The world was rocked once more this week by a series of pop-culture calamities, proving without a shadow of a doubt that we live in a world where nothing is sacred. Not Amy Winehouse’s wedding dress, nor the good clean fun of a new Will Smith album. While all […]
Is there nowhere in the world of culture which can stay positive for more than five minutes!?
