Of all the thousands of comic book series to discover, a story about an anthropomorphic cat that solves mysteries probably wouldn’t grab the attention of many readers.  But Blacksad, a European comic series about just that, defies all logic and delivers strong storytelling and incredible artwork that any fan of graphic novels would be sorry to miss.

Marvel’s Re-Evolution Begins at SXSW

Image Source: marvel.com

This week saw a pretty big announcement from Marvel in the form of a new application called Marvel AR and a revolutionary new line called Infinite comics.  Starting in April, smartphones and tablets with cameras will become readers’ windows to extra content, like original sketches and writer/artist commentary, when the AR logo is scanned within the forthcoming app.  Is this a useless new idea that will be underutilized and done away with shortly after launch, or could it truly be the next step in digital comics publishing that other companies will have to adopt in order to stay competitive?

Batman: Through the Looking Glass – Review

            Much like Lee Bermejo’s recent graphic novel “Batman Noel”, “Batman: Through the Looking Glass” takes a classic piece of literature and uses it as a foundation on which to build an engrossing Batman tale.  The book, from writer Bruce Jones and artist Sam Kieth, is a worthy purchase for any fan of unorthodox Batman tales (i.e. Grant Morrison’s “Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth).
