The blast of the Bremanger Quarry in Norway looks great because it was carefully planned, with explosives planted in 454 blast holes made along…

This news is as entirely unexpected as it is great: Boom! Studios has announced that its wildly successful teen comic series Lumberjanes is going to crossover with DC Comics’ very own Gotham Academy, creating what might just be the hippest teen mystery team-up in comic book history.
After missing out on a nomination last year for the first time since 2003, DC Comics has two series up for the GLAAD Media Awards. The excellent Midnighter and Harley Quinn join Lumberjanes, Angela: Queen of Hel, and The Wicked + The Divine in the Outsanding Comic Books category for their portrayal of LGBT characters.
Within the first six pages of Boom’s new Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series, the teen heroes declare that it’s “Morphin’ Time” and hold out the small handheld devices that transform them into the Power Rangers. It’s a moment that is ripped straight from the TV series so cleanly, I almost felt like a kid again.
2015 was a great year for comic books, and 2016 is shaping up to be just as exciting—and financially ruinous. Seriously, take a deep breath, look longingly at your wallet, and get ready to write up your pull list of some of 2016's coolest sounding comics.

Kaboom! It’s no surprise that a basketball would explode if you pumped it with a ridiculous amount of air but it’s really cool to see it unravel in super slow motion. The ball basically disintegrates and you can see the limp leftovers tear apart from each other as the orange sphere separates from having too much air…
Outside of their iconic ranger suits, Power Rangers’ the fashion of the series’ teen heroes can probably best be described as “Achingly 90s.” But that’s not going to be case in Boom studio’s new Power Rangers comic: these are teenagers with attitude and really nice clothes.
One of the largest remaining chunks of San Francisco’s Bay Bridge is coming down tomorrow, as engineers continue to dismantle the aging piece of infrastructure. But how to protect the fish and other wildlife in the area as it gets taken down? By blowing bubbles.
Dash cam footage of meteors aren’t particularly special anymore because the Internet has pretty much ruined everything. But this one that was taken in Bangkok the other day is pretty spectacular. The night sky gets completely lit up in that perfect hue of blue that we associate with aliens and then fades away as the…

Agents of SHIELD’s Melinda May gets her own one-off comic! Let’s check out all the new series of the week, shall we?
It’s an incredibly quiet week in new comics... almost too quiet. Such a sinister environ is perfect for the release of Wild’s End: The Enemy Within, the follow-up to the fantastic tale of 1930s anthropomorphic animals holding off an alien invasion (or so they thought!). Let’s dig in and check out whats new in comics…
It’s a relatively quiet week in comics—which makes it the perfect time for us to finally get our hands on Captain America: White, a comic that’s been in the works since 2008.

It’s a quiet week for new releases in comics, but nothing really is quiet when you get DC animation maestro Bruce Timm giving us his take on New God Bekka as Wonder Woman.
