This is seriously one of the best purchases I have made in a long time. I believe this was Grant Morrison’s first American work (please correct me if I’m wrong), and it set the stage for a brilliant career. Animal Man was the beginning of Morrison doing what he does best—making you give a shit about characters you forgot about or never knew existed.

The new Batgirl design has been often credited to Cameron Stewart OR Babs Tarr but rarely to the both of them. The design process was in fact a collaboration with both artists contributing to the final design.

Cameron: When DC first approached me about taking over Batgirl as…

Carlos Pacheco’s official Sam Wilson Captain America designs.

Thor goes to Creeperville in this page one splash from Thor #137!

"I want you to remember, Clark. In all the years to come…in your most private moments. I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you to remember…the one man who beat you."

And as the sun that had been too afraid to show its face in this city started to turn the black into grey, I smiled. Not out of happiness, but because I knew… that one day, I wouldn’t have to do this anymore. One day I could stop fighting. Because one day… I would win. One day, there will be no pain, no loss, no crime. Because of me, because I fight. For you. One day, I will win.

No, he isn’t.

Though, after this latest campaign, I don’t know that it would be easy to find an editor up here who’d want to risk working with him.

How The Supreme Court And Jack Kirby Could Change Everything

“I would like to suggest, to anyone in the media, that they won’t be wasting their time if they follow the ‘Jack Kirby rights at the Supreme Court’ story, more closely.” – Neal Adams

The inspiration for Comic Sans gives his verdict on this ‘awful’ font
Dave Gibbons, the artist behind the legendary Watchmen comic series, gives his opinion of the font his work inspired.

Dave Gibbons is responsible for some of the best examples of comic art ever produced out of the UK, and his work on the Watchmen series - created by Alan Moore - has secured his place amongst the very best comic artists of all time.

However, all this achievement pales into insignificance next to the horrific crime that Gibbons’ work inspired. A crime so heinous that almost 20 years after it was perperated in 1994, it still has the potential to harm anyone that comes in contact with it.

And the crime? Comic Sans.

Comic Sans was designed by Vincent Connare for use in a number of Microsoft apps back in 1994, and - according to Wikipedia - it was inspired by comic books Connare had in his office, specifically The Dark Knight Returns (lettered by John Costanza) and Watchmen (lettered by Gibbons).

Creative Bloq asked Gibbons for his take on the most hated font in existence, and how he feels about his - albeit innocent - role in its creation.
