Our perceptions of the ways things are in the real world often make it difficult to buy into the premises of comics set in worlds that, while like ours, are distinctly different. When you think of words like “occultist” or “space explorers,” you don’t immediately associate them with the Queen of England or working…
In times of great need or extreme stress, pretty much everyone’s survival instinct kicks in and we all default to certain coping mechanisms that have gotten us through our entire lives. For some people, that means cooking. For others, it means performing.
Batman: The Animated Series is one of those shows whose legacy has only grown with time. Now, over 25 years after the series debuted, Batman: TAS is getting a miniatures tabletop board game that will put a smile on anyone’s face, not just The Joker’s.

Jaxxon the Lepi smuggler is one of the most infamous excesses of the old Star Wars expanded universe—the rabbit in Flash Gordon cosplay that was bound to come up whenever you mentioned the weirdness of the EU. For decades, he’s been the butt of fan jokes... but now he’s officially back in the canon. He’s still kinda…
Even though playing games is typically how Rick and Morty end up putting the multiverse in jeopardy, the dimension-hopping duo are about to embark upon the journey of their lives with the help of a tabletop classic. This August, IDW and Oni Press are partnering to publish a four-issue, limited series from writers…
Locke & Key is an incredible horror comic from writer Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodríguez that just can’t seem to catch a break for an adaptation. The most recent television pilot has apparently been passed over by Hulu, but for fans of the Locke family drama, there’s still hope another streaming giant could pick it…
After IDW recently gave The Next Generation its first proper stint into the beloved Mirror Universe, its newest Trek comic offers a follow up that honestly, kinda sounds like it’s going a bit by the way of Star Trek: Discovery.
The third volume of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic, published in the mid-‘90s, has a weird history. Now considered non-canonical by the Mirage Comics run of classic Turtles books, the dark series came to an untimely end when it was canceled before a conclusion could be written. Now, decades later, that…
It turns out, Finn wasn’t the first Star Wars hero that Rose Tico fangirled over. As shown in the latest The Last Jedi prequel comic, Rose had a chance encounter with none other than Poe... and it went just about how you’d expect. Come on, people, it’s Poe Dameron.
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!
Over the last year, the Ghostbusters comics have started to slowly connect a whole multiverse of supernatural-hunting scientific heroes. At first with team-ups between the classic team and the ghostbustin’ class of 2016, but now it’s getting even bigger, and every Ghostbuster is coming along for the ride.
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.
A year back, we spotlighted the excellently spooky work of artist Brian Coldrick, creator of webcomic Behind You. Now, his illustrations have been compiled into a book from IDW, titled Behind You: One-Shot Horror Stories. We’ve got a peek at some of the gorgeously-rendered nightmares within.
This week saw the launch of IDW and Disney’s brand new DuckTales comic, based on the newly-returned—and utterly fantastic—animated series. It’s a great way to squeeze a little extra Duckburg goodness into your week between episodes. But so far, it’s missing some of the elements that’s made the new show so great.
The Klingons of Star Trek have a long, storied history of having their long, storied history explored and evolved every time we see them. Star Trek: Discovery’s take on them is no different, but these new Klingons have been shrouded in mystery. Until now, that is, thanks to the new Discovery comic.
Let’s be real: Comics are kind of a year-round thing. But you know what fall has that the rest of those lousy seasons don’t? Perfect comic book reading weather. So it’s a good thing that there’s tons of new comics on the way! Here’s our picks of the wonderful new books you’ll want to get cozy with in the coming months.
At Star Wars Celebration this year, IDW announced Star Wars Adventures, a new all-ages take on the galaxy far, far away, distinct from Marvel’s Star Wars comic book offerings. That distinction is continuing with a new, stylized take on The Force Awakens, and we’ve got a new look inside.
If you spend enough time in the American school system (doesn’t matter whether it’s public, private, or otherwise), you’re bound to meet or at least hear about that teacher.
