Gerry Conway is one of the legendary writers in comic book history. During his time at Marvel, he was part of the team that created characters such as Man-Thing, Werewolf by Night, Punisher, Vulture, Tombstone, and many others. During his time at DC Comics, he created Atomic Skull, Cheetah, Firestorm, Killer Croc, Star Sapphire, Jason Todd and many more. However, at Emerald City Comicon, Conway spent a considerable amount of his panel discussing the classic Spider-Man story, "The Night Gwen Stacy Died" which had superstar John Romita Sr. supplying the art. Originally, Romita pitched the story with Aunt May dying at the end. Which I didn't really see, because Aunt May was already, like, on her deathbed. It was sort of the running gag -- 'Oh, she's dying again.' If she died, it would've been sad, but it wouldn't have been tragic," said Conway to the panel »

First, though, we dive back into our staff-wide Top 10 Greatest Films of All Time list with the help of newly minted co-host Josh Spiegel of Mousterpiece »
Wolverine is Marvel’s most popular character after Spider-Man, and he’s everywhere. Hugh Jackman has played him in four X-Men films, one solo film, and is set to return for a solo film this summer along with X-Men: Days of Future Past in 2014. In comics, Wolverine can be found in Savage Wolverine, the upcoming Wolverine book, and in multiple team books as he is a member of multiple X-Men and Avengers squads and X-Force. However, he was once not so ubiquitous. He began as stocky, impetuous Canadian costumed adventurer who guest-starred in Incredible Hulk 180-182 (1974) where he teams up with Hulk and then fights him. Wolverine’s co-creator Len Wein made him a member of his relaunch of the X-Men with new, international characters in Giant Size X-Men 1 (1975). Even thoughthe original design for Wolverine was created by John Romita Sr. and Herb Trimpe, Wolverine started to become the character »

They want the label to be indicative of their punk roots, and put the onus on the creators.
Pizzolo: “Comics has a troubled history with its treatment of creators…our goal is to bring the supportive ethic of record labels like Epitaph, Dischord, and Revelation to comics.” Niles: “Brett, Matt, and I all came up in the Diy punk scene…And we’re bringing that kind of attitude to this… the constructive part about supporting voices who are talking about real things but in a bold and exciting way. We’re not afraid to bring in activism and politics and counterculture. What publisher today could be bringing out the next V For Vendetta? Nobody.“
The trio’s new venture start with a bang, with four new series in May, »

I am a child of the 90s. I loved the cartoons of the time such as, Rugrats, Street Sharks and Sonic the Hedgehog, but the best of these was always Spider-Man: The Animated Series and Batman: The Animated Series, both of which fuelled a lifelong love for the characters and comic books.
I don’t remember watching the Superman’s animated series, although I’m aware there was one, even if my Dad is a huge Bat-fan and despises Superman (asking him for a Superman graphic novel last Christmas was like what I imagine coming out as gay would have been like a few decades ago – or even now, in some places).
Perhaps that is why it took me so long to discover the greatness of Superman. Not to worry, though, I have taken it upon myself to make up for lost time and decided to compile a short list »
