The Beat sits down with Fantastic Beast’s Dan Fogler to talk about his comics writing career, the great coming yin/yang union, conspicy theories, and the coming of Brooklyn Gladiator in April.
I can’t actually vouch for the contents of this humorous book from the fine folks at The Devastator…but the cover is certainly seasonal. Oh, The Flesh You’ll Eat is a short comical book from writer Mike Levine, a contributor to The Onion, Heeb, The Devastator and McSweeney’s; and illustrator Jacob Vollum. It’s the same team […]
Gwenpool, an unholy mixture of Gwen Stacy and Deadpool started out as a Gwen Stayc variant cover month joke but took on a file of its own..to the point that it is now an actual comic book—with art by Guruhiro and Kris Anka no less. Gwen pool will debut in November’s Howard the Duck #1, […]
MAD Magazine is often overlooked as one of the longest running and most successful properties that DC Entertainment publishes. Of course, the early Harvey Kurtzman edited run, and seminal work by Will Elder, John Severin, Wally Wood, Al Jaffee and Sergio Aragones is justly lauded among comics history buffs, but with issue #535 coming out next week it’s also the longest continually running comics periodical in the US.

Personally, I think Pam would have a lot of potential. Heidi MacDonaldHeidi MacDonald is the founder and editor in chief […]
They totally went there.
Apparently for a year a statue of Spider-Man that proved he is a MAN loomed over a playground at the Lotte Shopping Center in Busan, South Korea. Since I can’t post the pictures directly here, suffice to say that Spidey has a big old boner. According to Kotaku, sculptor Eunsuk Yoo did not understand why […]
For those longing for the days of Barbie’s crapping toy dog Tanner, we have very good news: there is a new generation of toy animals that take little toy dumps on command. Although this being 2014, the girls who own the pets are fashionable “Moxie Girls” and the lovable pets with “the silly poo” are a bunny a koala and a unicorn. It turns out unicorn poo looks a lot like a colorful plastic ball, which is a huge relief for all. Turns out the main varieties of toy turds are glitter, rainbows and jewels.
