Power Rangers has a mixed legacy when it comes to marking anniversaries. Forever Red, Wild Force’s all-Red-Ranger special, was fine. Legendary Battle, Super Megaforce’s spectacular botching of an incredible anniversary Sentai series, was...well, not fine. At the end of this month, the show will try again, but…
Everyone has different ways of coping with the day-in-day-out toil of working a job, optimistically trudging toward whatever one’s version of a “weekend” is. But for many, to work often means to pour yourself into labor that doesn’t necessarily bring you any sense of joy, freedom, or expression.
R.L. Stine, the master of ghoulish, goosebump-inducing kid’s horror, is making a welcome return to comics after his debut last year with the weird and sinister Man-Thing for Marvel. This time around, it’ll be a whole new series of spooky happenings, as part of a wide-sweeping new deal he has with Boom Studios.

Since it first began, Boom Studios’ excellent Power Rangers series has been masterminded by writer Kyle Higgins—but that’s about to change. A new creative team is on the way, and the currently-ongoing Ranger mashup event that is Shattered Grid means that some unfamiliar faces are going to be the new Power Rangers for…
Close your eyes for a moment and try to imagine the apocalypse. What’s it like? Would you survive? Often, when we think about the end times, we envision desolate landscapes devoid of all life, and destabilized communities that are constantly at war for whatever scant resources are left.

San Diego Comic-Con is just months away, which means that the Eisners—some of the most prestigious awards in comics—are close, too. The full list of nominees has been revealed today, and unsurprisingly, it’s jam-packed with some damn good comics for you to read (or re-read).
Boom Studio’s first major event for its Power Rangers comic, Shattered Grid, has been promising to unite 25 years worth of Ranger teams into one big adventure. That said, it seems not every Ranger team will be making it to that team-up in one piece. Or many pieces, really.
Next week, Boom Studios’ Power Rangers comics are uniting Rangers from across 25 years of dramatically flipping away from giant pyrotechnics for the line’s first major crossover event. To celebrate, the original Green Ranger himself has donned the spandex once more... but not to play the Tommy Oliver you remember.
The original Planet of the Apes is an all-time classic, but the beloved movie wasn’t the first crack at bringing Pierre Boulle’s work to the big screen. Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling wrote an early draft for the screenplay, featuring tons of moments that never made it into the final film. And now, his story is…
When you’re a regular reader of a comic, you’re always somewhat prepared to process whatever’s about to happen in it. Forging that kind of relationship is the challenge that all new series with new characters have to face, and some comics handle it better than others. With that in mind, we’ve selected three new titles…
After a few years away, Boom Studios is bringing the world’s most beloved cyborg cop back into action with a brand new miniseries. But this time, RoboCop finds himself in a weird dystopian future: one where law enforcement isn’t performed by cops, Robo or otherwise, but private citizens.
A new year is upon us, filled with new opportunities and new hopes... and lots of new comics for you read instead of fulfilling those new opportunities and hopes. Unless they were “read more comics,” because boy howdy, do we have some new series we’re looking forward to in the first few months of the year to show you!
You couldn’t swing a dead cat this year and not end up hitting a fantastic new comic. This is a good thing! (Unless you’re a dead cat.) At the same time, though, 2017 wasn’t without its moments of comics chicanery and utter wackness. Now’s as good a time as any to look back and reflect on what sort of year comics had…
Free Comic Book Day might be five months away, but you can already start preparing for all the free comics you’ll be able to read right now. Today, we got the official announcement of the top tier of free books that will be available to celebrate comic book nerd Christmas in May.
They’ve battled on alternate worlds, explored their earliest days as Teens with Attitude, and even fought the Justice League, but the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers’ next major comic adventure is an anniversary spectacular: one where 25 years of rangers unite to face a threat against them all.
Goldie Vance is a comic book series from publisher Boom Studios that won over readers’ hearts when it first came out last year. It’s won over actresses who starred in The Office and Scandal, too, so much so that Rashida Jones and Kerry Washington are going to adapt it for film.
Novelist Saladin Ahmed is currently behind one of Marvel’s most intriguing comics, the vivid and beautiful Black Bolt solo with Christian James Ward. But his next project sounds just as exciting: an original series for Boom that promises some good old-fashioned supernatural crime.
Comic book events often rely on a narrowly defined idea of “edgy coolness” to convey a sense of import to the story they’re trying to tell. It’s not enough that the world’s ending—everything’s gotta be gritty and dark. But DC and Boom Studios’ Justice League/Power Rangers crossover is fueled by something else: the…
