COMIC LOVE: Death of the Family and Defining a Sequential Epic

No other character in DC Comics’ New 52 has benefited quite as much from such a kismet combination of literary and artistic talent as Batman under the creative team of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. Snyder’s infusion of horror into Batman’s mythology, exquisitely brought to life by Capullo’s rendering, has given Batman the fresh perspective

LGBT Visibility: You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby

As the decades have worn on, the comic book industry has made a conscious effort to focus on diversity by creating, reinventing and promoting characters that defy what is considered normative.

Crisis of Epic Proportion: The Case of Alan Scott

As a young comic reader, I imagined that when you died, one significant perk of heaven would be the ability to read every comic book ever written — past, present or future. Who would be a member of the Justice League in 2086? (Betcha Superman’s going to be there.) Would the Teen Titans have teens
