Red 5 Comics has announced it is collecting the digital comic Box 13 (currently running for free at comiXology’s Comics iPhone/iPod Touch app), into a print collection for the first time.
Created by David Gallaher and Steve Ellis, the first Zuda.com contest winners, Box 13 is a re- imagining of the popular radio serial of the same name. It follows investigative author Dan Holiday who has spent the last several years of his life researching the secrets behind the MKULTRA project. His latest book has brought him a degree of notoriety, but a mysterious numbered box left on his book signing table is too much to resist. Once opened, the box sends him spinning on a harrowing journey of self-discovery and driving mystery… what is in Box 13?
The graphic novel will be released on May 19, 2010 for a mere $13.Â If you don’t want to read the series via the iPhone or iPod Touch, the first chapter of the Box 13 series will be made available for free during Free Comic Book Day 2010.
POW! Entertainment and BOOM! Studios announced a deal has been struck that will see the production of a series of three superhero titles presented by Stan Lee. These series will premiere from BOOM! Studios later this year.

Two other series will follow, featuring A-list writers as a part of the creative team. Further announcements will clarify the teams and the timing for the roll-out.

Weâ€™re roughly thirty days away from the launch of Appleâ€™s much-talked-about iPad.Â While the device looks like a flattened iPod, its potential to revolutionize the way we consume media is staggering.Â One of the more interesting aspects of the iPad is the ability to read comic books at nearly the same size as the printed version.Â While other e-books only have black-and-white displays, the iPadâ€™s color screen could radically change the way we read and access comics.
Iâ€™ve talked before about digital comics and how an effective electronic color reader could change the way we access and enjoy comic books.Â But is the iPad that device?
Here is the New Comic Release list for comics scheduled to be in stores March 3, 2010. There may be items on this list that are not shipped at the last minute, or new material may be added. Check with your local retailer for more details.
I stopped collecting comic book trading cards back in the 90s, but occasionally, I’ll come across a piece of art that makes me want to get back into the game.Â Â There are two things preventing me from that 1) I have no more room in my Nerd Room of Doom, and 2) today’s entry by Gene Gonzales is only a practice, and not part of a shipping series.
