Doctor Whowebcomic

While IDW Publishing continues to deliver some very good Doctor Who comics, there might not be enough Doctor goodness to satisfy your craving.  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

Comic Shop

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.  We heard about this during the 100th issue of the Major Spoilers Podcast, and my own comic book shop closed about five years ago.  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.  Even Sunday, which has always been a fairly slow and open day for the show.  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

BatmanDCGrant Morrison

I like the second to last sentence in this quote from the IGN interview with grant morrison.  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 – 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

Mary JaneSpider-Man

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.  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

Harry PotterMovies

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is another in the big summer movie extravaganza, and it opens July 17, 2009. Buffy the Vampire Slayer has done really well in comic book form, and even though we won’t see Harry Potter comics in the near future, I do wonder how many comic book readers are fans of the Harry Potter books?  How many of the Major Spoiler Legion are going to see the Half Blood Prince?

As the saying goes, “You can’t keep a good man down,” and that is so true when it comes to the Blue Beetle.  DC is starting to come around to the backup story in comics, by adding the Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle to the Booster Gold series.  The backups will be written by Matt Sturges, with Mike Nortan taking on the art duties.

Captain BritainCaptain Britain and MI:13Marvel

Yesterday, Paul Cornell confirmed what had been rumored for some time – Captain Britain and MI: 13 were getting the axe by Marvel. Lastly, and this is really important, while we didn’t know this would be the last arc until comparatively recently, I had it in mind that it was possible it would be from the time I started plotting it. Indeed, the end of this arc marks the end of what I had planned for the book when I started. One of the images right at the finish is what I always felt I was heading towards, and I’m

IDW Publishing has its own take on zombie, but sending them to an island resort and letting all Hell break loose.  The Last Resort arrives from the company in July and is written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray with cover art by Darwyn Cooke, and illustrated by Giancarlo Caracuzzo. Jimmy Palmiotti commented, “The Last Resort is just what I want after months of super hero comics. I want my comics: R-rated; I want my sexy broads topless and I want our characters to be regular Joes that will just about do any atrocious thing to stay live. The great
