We’re living in a golden age of superheroic media—Marvel dominates the Hollywood blockbuster scene, while The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl lead a ton of new comic book TV shows. And that leads to people writing off comics as just a source of raw material. But comics themselves are on a roll right now.
Sure the Micronauts toys were cool, but what made the franchise a classic was the Bill Mantlo/Michael Golden ‘80s Marvel Comics series. Several publishers since, including Marvel themselves, have planned a return to the Microverse but now IDW is taking on the series—and io9 has an exclusive look!
It’s the oldest rule in the crossover book: if two disparate heroes or groups of heroes are going to team up, it’s only after they tussle with each other first.

Before Star Trek came to the BBC in 1969, British sci-fi fans were introduced to the crew of the Starship Enterprise in a series of weird and wonderful comic strips in the pages of TV21—a series of adventures rarely printed since, and never available to American audiences. That is, until now.
You know what, Spocks? I agree.
It’s October, the universally-recognized month of all things scary. But while there are perennial books like The Walking Dead out there, as you count down to Halloween, you’ll need a lot of entertaining reading material to keep your spine thoroughly chilled. So why not sit down and spook yourself with some of the best…
It’s all change in this week’s all new comics—Marvel is continuing its “All-New, All Different” reboot with new comics for the Guardians, Captain America, Spider-Gwen, and more. Chewbacca begins his own series. Plus, The Goon returns for Halloween, and Superman has A BEARD! Let’s dig in, shall we?
It’s a quiet week for new comics—as indicated by a bevy of annuals. But in the midst of this quiet, we’ve got From Under Mountains, one of our must-read comics of the season. On top of that? 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.

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. But that’s not all for this week’s new comics. There’s also science fiction adventures from Arrow’s Marc Guggenheim, and tons more!

It’s quiet end-of-summer week for new comics—but hey! Look at the sweet mustache on Howard the Human (née Duck), the latest wacky addition to Marvel’s Secret Wars event. But that’s not all this week—there’s near future political thrills, secret love, super-powered murder, and much, much more.…
Sure, they might not be coming back to TV until 2016, but this week X-Files’ 11th season kicks off in a new run of comics. But that’s not all there is to enjoy in the newest comics of the week: DC’s Bombshells make their physical debut, Sleepy Hollow’s Abbie and Ichabod return to comics, and much, much more!
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.

Sure, Hank Pym and Scott Lang make all that shrinking look fun, but as you can see in this week’s adaptation of the Richard Matheson classic The Shrinking Man, it can be pretty petrifying. But that’s not all in this week’s new comics—Bruce Timm writes Superman! Hacktivists! Zombie Soldiers! And more!
It’s another light week in the world of new comics, but there’s still cool new comics hitting shelves. Cyborg gets his one standalone series, Galaxy Quest returns to comics (again!), and Stan Lee designs a whole new Indian Superhero. Hooray for comics!
