And Finally… The History Of The DC Universe, As It Was

Posted by Travis Ellison... this History Of The DC Universe image used to appear in the DC Comics lobby, outside the elevators. I think I briefly saw it once on an attempt to gatecrash the place during one NYCC several years ago. It’s gone now, replace by a New 52 panel instead, which will be […]

When Don Simpson Was Offered An Image Comics Partnership

Megaton Man creator Don Simpson has been posting most entertainingly on Facebook about that project that never happened, the 1963 Annual, that would have topped off the Image Comics series by Alan Moore, Steve Bissette, Rick Veitch and more.

There’s a headline I never thought I’d write. Horror comics writer and artist Steve Bissette has turned his back on Marvel or DC. Or they have turned their back on him. One of the two.

Get Your Free Neil Gaiman And Michael Zulli Sweeney Todd Comic Here
