During 2013, readers got a chance to welcome some new additions to their buy list, while saying farewell to a couple of their personal favorites. The DC timeline jumped backwards, sending Batman back to “Year Zero,” while Marvel unleashed Galactus on the Ultimate Universe. When readers went outside the Big Two, there were creators experimenting with their artwork at IDW and Image. Even an iconic actor, known for his memorable movie roles, jumped into comics writing at Dark Horse. By the end of the year, a critically acclaimed horror series finally closed its last chapter.

Here is my Top 10 List for Best Horror Miniseries of 2013. READ MORE

Locked in a jail cell together, Sally Sno-Cones, Summer Rhoades, and Cole Edwards have no idea what’s really going on outside. They don’t know that the whole world has gone to Hell. In an interesting experiment, writer/artist Alan Robert uses the likeness of Frank Vincent, Marky Ramone, and Brea Grant to portray his anti-heroes.
I spoke with Alan Robert about how the concept for “Killogy” came about, the challenges of doing an experiment like this, and his upcoming projects. READ MORE
