One of Dynamite’s releases this week is a comics character with a history going back decades. Barbarella presents the space-faring heroine popularized by Jane Fonda in 1968, based on the French science fiction comic from 1962. Knowing the history, I dove into the comic to see if Mike Carey’s new series drew more from the
There was a review of this comic that I read recently somewhere else, that focused on Erik Larsen's new focus on the sex life of Malcolm Dragon, the son of the original Savage Dragon. It's not actually that new, as it's been a major plot point for a couple of years. I decided that I'd give the issue in question a shot and see what I thought of it. Needless to say, this issue deals with some graphic depictions of adult situations and as such, this review will be dealing with some more mature topics.
Good news comes in small doses and Aubrey Sitterson is off GI Joe from IDW. In fact, his upcoming book, Scarlett’s Strike Force will end with issue #3. While I do hate to see GI Joe is such disarray, it;s something that needed to take place. Sitterson caused major controversy with both his political views and his
Hi. everyone, Stan Ford, here, chief of the comics side of the web site. I need to address some things that may have been nagging some of you the way that it’s been nagging me. There’s a dearth of comic articles on the web site, and I need to explain why, if for no reason,
Ever since the Harvey Weinstein scandal started a deluge of accusations against powerful men in the entertainment industry, the comics industry has remained largely silent despite having its own poster child for sexual harassment in the DC editorial offices, Eddie Berganza. For years, DC remained silent as comics news outlets reported case after case of Berganza harassing staffers and freelancers, yet retaining his high profile and powerful position within one of the largest publishers. DC and Warner Bros. both remained silent about his status during all this time.
The news broke with a tweet from DC Comics that writer Brian Michael Bendis would be working for DC Comics. Bendis had been one of the driving creative voices at Marvel Comics for almost two decades.

When creators come from outside of comics, it can signal something big and special. Sometimes it's a novelist, sometimes it's a writer from film or television. This January, an Emmy Award-winning writer brings his talent to Image Comics in a story that tells what happens after a hero fades away.
Ever since Bitch Planet came out, it quickly gathered a fan base excited about it's feminist take on the exploitation story so prevalent in American cinema in the 1960s and 70s. Writer Kelly Sue DeConnick crafts a great send up of the genre with her story of a prison planet whose inmates are non-compliant women. It spawned a spin off anthology, Bitch Planet: Triple Feature that gave other creators a swing at the world created by DeConnick and tell stories of their own. Now the first five issues of the anthology are being collected and should be stores in time for Christmas.
Tank Girl is always one of those comics that asks you to strap in for the ride. After serious comics beg to be taken seriously, it's good to pick up a comic that just wants you to read it.
Bingo Love is one of those comics that I’m eagerly awaiting since I got the first e-mail about it. I even picked up a preview comic this summer from writer Tee Franklin. It was announced at NYCC that it will be published by Image Comics. I’m also excited that there’s a rough release date for
