There’s always been a very close relationship between gaming and comics, and while this site doesn’t cover a lot of gaming stuff (we probably should), we can at least throw the gamers a bone with this week’s Friday Sing-along from Kirby Krackle.Â With E3 wrapping up, the comic book rock band takes a look at the early 64-bit gaming world.

Those of you who have been following the Major Spoilers Podcast for any length of time have seen us switch to original art as part of the logo for each new episode.Â Those fantastic little drawings come from Dante, who whips these up during our recording session.Â During the most recent Major Spoilers Podcast, the Major Spoilers Crew discussed comics in the classroom. Dante took that theme and ran with it, so as a big thanks to Dante for taking the time to draw these pieces of original art, we’re featuring him in this installment of the Art Appreciation Moment
Spoiler TV looks to have nabbed the first images of Josh Brolin in his complete Jonah Hex getup.Â The look works, but it isn’t the turn away in horror reaction that we see in the comics. Head over to the site for the full image, plus one. via Spoiler TV

While IDW Publishing continues to deliver some very good Doctor Who comics, there might not be enough Doctor goodness to satisfy your craving.Â If that is the case, then check out Rich Morris’ fan-comic that features all ten of the Doctors, Daleks, and much more. He just completed the 247-page graphic novel on May 27th, 2009, and you can download the entire PDF over at Rich’s ComixBlog. via Journalista
As the shift in comic distribution and bad economy continues worsen (here’s hoping the economy is on a recovery), the small comic book shops are going to continue to close.Â We heard about this during the 100th issue of the Major Spoilers Podcast, and my own comic book shop closed about five years ago.Â Word came from Fantom Comics that it was also closing its store in the Washington, D.C. area, but instead of leaving all of its customers in the cold, it is switching to home delivery. According to the company website, there is a $15 minimum order for
Still two months away and the San Diego Comic Con has completely sold out.Â Even Sunday, which has always been a fairly slow and open day for the show.Â That’s a good thing for comics, pop culture, and the movie industry, but bad news for those who were on the fence deciding if they were going go or not. via Comic Con International
I like the second to last sentence in this quote from the IGN interview with grant morrison.Â It sounds like he’s finally figured out what fans want in their Batman stories. IGN Comics: It sounds like that goes back to what you were trying to do with Final Crisis, where you cut out all the quieter moments and just got down to “the drums and the bass”, as you called it â€“ the meat of the story. Morrison: Yeah. I went to see Crank: High Voltage when we were in Los Angeles. I had just watched that, and I thought
For those of you who have been crying in your beer ever since the events of Brand New Day, can heave a sigh of releif as the webslinger and the hot model are back together again. Wait, what!? That’s right, True Believers, if you local paper (are there any of those left anymore) carries the Spider-Man comic strip, you saw Peter wake from a dream to discover he and Mary Jane are still hitched.Â Check out the editor box for how it happened. It’s too bad the real Spider-Man comic books can’t switch gears this easily. via The Comics Curmudgeon
