Sideshow’s Court of the Dead series has branched out its battle between Heaven and Hell into the world of digital comics—and Death’s role in the ever-ongoing conflict expands too, in this second part of our comic miniseries!
It’s always a delight to hear a creator enthusiastically discuss their work, but when said creator is Ta-Nehisi Coates, one of the most talented writers in America, talking about his work on Black Panther, one of the most hotly anticipated Marvel series around? It’s doubly delightful.
The Russo Brothers, Anthony and Joe, are about to release Captain America: Civil War and have begun to prep Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2. They’re also going produce an adaptation of the graphic novel, Sexcastle, and a few new writers—who also happen to be a team of brothers—have just been hired.
It’s a good time for IDW and Hasbro. The Micronauts comic has just launched, Rom is on the way, there’s now a third revival happening between the two companies. Yes, the heroes-wearing-superpowered-masks-who-also-drive-transforming-vehicles series M.A.S.K. is driving into comic books as well.
Not content with being the first active member of Congress to write a graphic novel, congressman John Lewis is may become its first animation star, as his seminal memoir about the civil rights movement will be brought to television as an animated series.
We couldn’t be more excited for Captain America: Civil War to finally come to theaters next week, but we also couldn’t be less enthused with its source material.

Sideshow Collectibles is probably best known as a fine purveyor of incredibly fancy (and expensive) premium figures and statues. But it has also branched out into making its very own fantasy world—and to celebrate a new book based on it, we’ve got a new comic miniseries to set it all up.

When comic book author Mark Millar writes something, people take notice. Comic readers, sure, but in recent years Hollywood as well. Wanted, Kick-Ass, Kingsman, and Civil War are just a few of Millar’s stories that have made it to the big screen, and now two more are on deck.
Today might be “Alien Day” in recognition of the scifi horror classic, but it’s actually tomorrow that a fascinating new layer of this universe gets uncovered in the new comic Aliens: Defiance.

His voice could encompass Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, and Mick Jagger, while remaining recognizable as its own thing. But around the time he created his own musical fantasia out of Tim Burton’s …
We at io9 tend to cover a lot of comic book news, but there are a lot of smaller titles that, while not making headline news, are absolutely worth checking out (and then telling all your friends about how awesome they are).
