100 Bullets

Created by writer Brian Azzarello and artist Edward Risso, '100 Bullets'' core premise, as revealed in the 'First Shot, Last Call' trade paperback, concerns the book's main protagonist, one Agent Graves.


Naughty Bits #1 (1999)

Comic books by women are not as rare as one might think. Despite the fetishized female found in too many male-authored comic books and the stereotype of comics as a boy's club, women have been involved in comics for decades.


Vesper / Valentine

Women with weapons, men with pens — it's a trend that recurs heavily in modern comics. Frequently, the minds behind today's strong, female characters are none other than men. While in general that may be a counter-intuitive relationship, women written and drawn almost exclusively by men, it's practically a given in the comics industry. Girls with guns, boys with brushes.


Sock Monkey Volume 3, 1-2

The resurrected character is a staple in the comic book industry. Jean Grey of the X-Men, Superman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Elektra Assassin and numerous others have all died only to be resurrected.


Interview with Walt Simonson - PopMatters Comics Interview

Just recently, PopMatters had the opportunity to speak with renown comic book writer Jamie Delano.


JLA (Justice League of America)

Continuity. It's as minor an everyday problem as watching a Cheers rerun one night where Woody Boyd is slinging drinks and the next night where his deceased predecessor Coach is alive, not giving a log about anybody named Woody.


Just a Pilgrim

Just a Pilgrim‘s Progress(or, The Evolution of the Heroic Myth Perspective) With his work on Preacher, Punisher, and Hitman, Garth Ennis has helped


Palooka-Ville #1 (10th anniversary edition) & #15

Seth’s Not Funny During an especially trying period in graduate school a few years ago, a friend of mine asked what I might do


Truth, Justice, and the British Way

I understand roughly two-thirds of Superman's credo.


Defenders

Busiek and Larsen's 'Defenders' stories are fast paced, fun, filled with links to the past of the Marvel Universe, and just good ol' superhero comics -- a rarity these days.


Stalagmite

Comic books don't all have to be about super-powered, spandex-wearing heroes, nor have half-naked, gargantuan-breasted women.


Ultimate Marvel Team-Up #1: Spider-Man & Wolverine

This comic is a fun ride, and sometimes that is all you need for 10 minutes of sheer entertainment!


Just Imagine Stan Lee . . .

DC Comics' series of 'Just Imagine . . .' one-shots written by the legendary Stan Lee answers the question of whether Lee still has what it takes to write comics. The short answer is: Yes. The long answer is: So what?


Lucifer: Devil in the Gateway

Despite the rich pedigree of the main character and the multitude of Hell-raised and -raising characters that inhabit DC's mature Vertigo line, no fanfare accompanies 'Lucifer'.

10th Annual Noise Pop Festival

10th Annual Noise Pop Sees Steady Growth Spurt As Organizers Promise Best Fest Ever The 10th Annual Noise Pop Festival has grown from humble beginnings


High Sierra Music Festival Part 2 feat. Apollo Sunshine, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, The New Up, and Sh

High Sierra has its fair share of innocuous acts, sure, but in recent years the festival has also opened the door to some healthy aggression.


High Sierra Music Festival Part 1 feat. My Morning Jacket

You might well be on the road to Rivendell, Shangri-La, or maybe even Grandma's House.


Evolution—The Journey Tribute

Tribute acts are cover bands with sillier names -- the Achtung Babies or Fleetwood to the Max. They're music's C-list, sure, but can they really rock like the big boys?


Download Festival 2006 feat. Guns & Roses, Metallica, Tool, and Coheed and Cambria

Psychos, thieves, weirdos filling bottles with piss and throwing them into the crowd, this festival is not for boys in parachute pants. It's for metalheads.
