Oh crap, I feel like East of West has been missing for awhile. Glad its back. Babylon, the son of Death, thinks he is found the value of life, and it is in a mysterious place called “The Dead Wood.”

Five Ghosts Special #1

The solicitation says this will explore the mythology of the Five Ghosts world, which I think might mean explaining the origins of the Dreamstone.

Afterlife with Archie #8

Delays not withstanding, I really like this book. A new arc starts here that reveals a dark history of Riverdale before the zombie outbreak, a pact made between the adults of Riverdale and the witches of Greendale.

DC Comics’ Catwoman Comes Out of the Closet

TIME

Selina Kyle, Batman’s stealthy enemy and love interest, officially came out as bisexual in the latest issue of Catwoman.

The leather-clad cat burglar kissed another woman in Catwoman #39, illustrated by Garry Brown, confirming what many fans had long suspected about the flirtatious, hyper-sexualized character.

“For me, this wasn’t a revelation so much as a confirmation,” Genevieve Valentine, the series’ writer, said on her blog.

Catwoman’s coming out is just the latest of many efforts by comic book companies to diversify their characters. DC’s Batwoman has identified as a lesbian since 2006, and one Green Lantern, Alan Scott, is gay. In 2013, a trans woman of color was introduced as a character in Batgirl. Marvel’s Northstar, a member of the X-Men, married his partner in 2012.

Catwoman has been around for 75 years (her first appearance was in Batman #1 in 1940), and her relationship to the…

SecretSix_Cover1_54086fac92e7f5.31175643

So, what’s the secret? We’re not saying, but with covers and character designs by Dale Eaglesham and interior art by Ken Lashley this is going to be one incredible comic book. Full of mystery and danger, SECRET SIX features six characters who, when thrown together, hate each other and must learn to work with each other.

Who are the Secret Six? Well, for now, Simone is only sharing a couple. Making their first appearance in The New 52 are Catman and Black Alice. In her interview with LA Times Hero Complex Simone talks about the book’s style. she promises the same sort of “black humor and edginess…Rather than “brightest heroes or the darkest villains,” the book lives in the gray area between, with “private detectives, mercenaries, bounty hunters, failed heroes.” Many fans…

#31 – Marvels

Entry written by G-Funk

One of the many titles that have achieved widespread recognition due to the artwork by Alex Ross. In order to recap and celebrate the long history of Marvel superheroes we follow an everyman photographer as he witnesses events from the sidelines. He’s in the crowd when the Human Torch fought Namor, Galactus attacked the Earth, mutant appearances cause riots and the age of The Avengers. It’s a stunning volume for both long term fans and newcomers. The incredible artwork alone is worth the price.
