Comics to Read Before You Die #15: The Authority Vol. 1

16 January 2015 9:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the latest edition of Comics to Read Before You Die, Jessie Robertson looks at The Authority Vol. 1…

Created by Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch

May 1999

Complete Bad-assery. Obviously that is not a word, nor a phrase heard anywhere but after re-reading this book, it’s the only thing that comes to mind. My advice, though, when it comes to this: read it twice through without making opinions about it. The first time I read The Authority, I soaked it in at face value; terrorist villain, super-powered characters that can affect things on a large scale, other worldly espionage, science fiction and occult all wrapped into one confounding team-up book. It was all too familiar but with a handful of characters and worlds I was very unfamiliar with. It struck the notion of the latest batch of characters who are on souped up power levels to give them the weight of famous characters already created. »

19 new comic book TV shows airing in 2015 and beyond

12 January 2015 3:25 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Daredevil, Preacher, Supergirl... Lost track of the zillions of comic book shows to grace our televisions from 2015? Here's our cheat sheet.

It’s a wonderful time to be a TV-binging comic book fan. In fact, if you were a little tactical about your viewing habits (and not too fussy in your Marvel/DC preference), we’re approaching a state where you could probably fill an ‘all the soap operas’ shaped hole in your schedule every day with the stuff of capes, cowls and crime-fighting.

Of course, we already have Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, The Walking Dead and – for now – Constantine gracing our schedules. Of those, Arrow, The Flash and The Walking Dead have already been picked up for further seasons, as well. With the exception of Constantine, we wouldn’t be too surprised to hear the rest renewed too.

The fun doesn’t stop there. »

The Webcomic That Inspired Me: Freakangels

4 January 2015 12:21 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Comics can touch our lives in interesting ways. A college kid has an epiphany: the rapper he’s listening to while reading The Fantastic Four just made a Doctor Doom reference. Or maybe a young adult comes to terms with a previous attempt at ending their own life – through a comic’s creator coming to terms with the same thing in the pages of her art. Two middle aged people get a second shot at love, realizing they both adore Gaiman’s Sandman. Occasionally more than just words and pictures on a page, comics can be the tendrils between us.

Warren Ellis’ long running web-comic Freakangels holds a special place in my heart. But before I get to that, let me explain why Freakangels deserves to be reread years after its conclusion.

Ellis is one of comics’ most infamous figures; he’s an imposing, bearded, gloomy looking guy with rings »
