Yes, that’s right: Image. I know I usually do the DC Comics sales summaries here at The Beat, but while Heidi looks for someone to step in and handle the Indy comics chart I volunteered to do a column focusing on Image.

While the zombie book led the charts before, it was for the milestone 100th issue. I believe this is the first time a regular issue led the charts, most likely buoyed […]

There have been very few series that tap into the cultural zeitgeist and become regular water cooler conversation. With […]
Incredibly, when they aren’t signing autographs at comics shows around the nation, the cast of The Walking Dead is making a TV show. Since AMC needs something to keep itself busy post Breaking Bad, in two Sundays the fourth season of The Walking Dead debuts for more hope-crushing, jugular-tearing fun and frolic. To get you […]
