What are you thankful for in comics?


I’m thankful for the possible return of Cyclops, who, as we all know, was right.

-Nolan Buro

Thankful for the best comic shop I’ve stepped inside, run by a great team who keep all of this fun and interesting. Thankful for good runs on titles I follow, and new comics to try. And, of course, am constantly amazed to be living in an era when we get comics-based movies and TV that are actually well made. And, Krypto. Always thankful for Krypto.

-Ryan Steans

The temporary escape from reality. Comic books have saved me from insanity on many occasion. It’s amazing what a super hero can do for the “emotional you”

-Natasha Michelle

I’m thankful for comics giving me a love for reading, developing my reading and writing skills, directing me towards a career as a librarian, and providing me with characters that helped shaped the moral foundation that guides me to this day. ‘Nuff said!

-Peter A.

I’m just thankful for comics, period. 😉

-Benjamin Blackwell

    New Release Pick of the Week

    DARK KNIGHT RETURNS THE GOLDEN CHILD #1

    (W) Frank Miller (A/CA) Rafael Grampá
    Frank Miller returns to the Dark Knight Universe!
    It’s been three years since the events of Dark Knight III: The Master Race. Lara has spent the time learning to be more human, and Carrie Kelley has been growing into her new role as Batwoman. But a terrifying evil has returned to Gotham City, and Lara and Carrie must team up to stop this growing threat-and they have a secret weapon. Young Jonathan Kent, “the golden child,” has a power inside of him unlike anything the world has ever seen, and it’s about to be unleashed…
    Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child is Frank Miller’s triumphant return to the world of the Dark Knight and joining him is the superstar artist Rafael Grampá, the mastermind behind the groundbreaking Mesmo Delivery. Following work in advertising and film, this incredible collaboration marks Grampá’s first comics work in six years, bringing his extraordinary detail and storytelling to the Dark Knight saga, resulting in a Dark Knight story like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

    After the events of the Jughead the Hunger vs. Vampironica crossover, Veronica returns to her own universe, still a vampire. She's not the same, and she knows it but she may not be ready for what she's about to discover!
