Another year gone by, another mound of comic book goodness to sift through. I did a quick count of a random month (June 2013) of the five major comic book publishers (Dark Horse Comics, DC Comics, IDW Publishing, Image Comics and Marvel) and they combined to put out a whopping 306 books! That’s a lot of story out there.
There were tons of great series that debuted, died, re-numbered, and some superb miniseries that hopefully come back for more. I felt there were strong attempts to move focus onto more female characters this year from various publishers. It was great and refreshing to see but the resulting short-lived (and loved) series flared and sadly faded.
Here’s what I thought was a fantastic read worth looking up in case you missed it the first time broken down into mini-series and on-going ones. I also focus on mostly non-horror books because they deserve some attention too. Thanks, 2013. I can’t wait to see what crazy goodness comes out in 2014. READ MORE

The infamous comic book gossip site, Bleeding Cool, announced word of a new DC crossover event to take place next year. It’s a bit early to jump the gun on the news, especially considering absolutely no information is available other than the name, which is the “Trinity War“. Given the title it’s safe to guess it will involve their big three heroes, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. Details on who will be writing, illustrating, are nowhere to be seen. More importantly, whether the event is a fight between the three or a big team up, your guess is as good as ours. Let’s up DC releases some official information soon. READ MORE
