Bebop And Rocksteady Take A Road Trip In New TMNT Miniseries

Following in the footsteps of Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything, writers/artists extraordinaire Ben Bates and Dustin Weaver return to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan-favorite dysfunctional duo of Bebop and Rocksteady in Bebop & Rocksteady Hit The Road! With a new issue available every Wednesday in August, there’s going to be mayhem and hijinks to keep fans satisfied all month long!

When a road trip back to New York City goes sideways and their powers begin to waver, Bebop and Rocksteady stumble upon trouble, as only they can.

Co-writer Ben Bates expressed his enthusiasm for  returning to the characters, saying, "I have a clear memory of playing with my Rocksteady and Bebop figures as a kid, studying all the details that were unique to each of them, what seem to define their individual personalities and overall thinking how cool as characters they were. It's crazy to me that I still get to play with these guys as an adult; I hope it never stops! Turtles forev…

Star Trek: The Next Generation returns to comics in new miniseries!

After the stellar success of Star Trek: The Next Generation: Mirror Broken, which introduced the alternate “Mirror” villainous version of the U.S.S. Enterprise crew to comics, and the excitement around the upcoming five-week mega-event Star Trek: The Next Generation: Through The Mirror, IDW now returns to the original, or “prime,” universe this August in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Terra Incognita, beginning a brand-new wave of episodic miniseries!

This six-issue miniseries reveals unique, focused stories where beloved characters find themselves in new, unfamiliar situations, in a format echoing the “done-in-one” nature of the television series. However, each issue also features a subtle throughline of an evil Mirror Universe crewmember established in the Mirror Broken and Through the Mirror series remaining on the ship, wreaking havoc while posing as his prime universe counterpart. Featuring the best of both the Mirror and original universes, Terra Incognita is a unique new step…

FremantleMedia North America Set to Bring World’s Largest Population of Superheroes and Supervillains to Television in New Astro City Series

FremantleMedia North America, the studio behind the acclaimed American Gods TV series, has obtained the rights to Astro City.  Spanning 16 (and counting) collected, standalone yet loosely-connected story arcs containing more than 2,000 original characters, the fictional Astro City universe explores the lives of ordinary people and those of the all-too-human superhumans in their midst, and their collective, daily struggle to hold on to hope in the face of world-shaking, life-altering events beyond any single individual’s control.

A mid-sized American city blessed with, and cursed by, the largest number of superheroes and supervillains in one place on Earth, Astro City is a unique brand of humanistic saga -- part superhero epic, part intimate drama -- in which the (mostly) good hearted, workaday residents of the eponymous locale come into daily contact with the worrisome, the weird and the wondrous.

Currently published by DC Comics, the multiple award-winning, critically acclaimed, Ast…

“Dazzler has always been one of my favorite X-Men, and one of the most sadly underutilized,” said Visaggio. “She's been wandering for so long, and I'm so excited to help bring her back to her musical roots and the X-family. Anyone who knows my work knows how much I love to frontline women who quite literally rock, and I hope me and Laura can bring some of that same energy and positivity …

QUANTUM AND WOODY! The world’s worst superhero team returns in an explosive new ongoing series!

QUANTUM AND WOODY! (2017) VOL. 1: KISS KISS KLANG KLANG TPB
Written by DANIEL KIBBLESMITH

Cover by JULIAN TOTINO TEDESCO

Sometimes…you embrace your destiny. And sometimes…you and your troublemaking adopted brother find yourselves trapped in a scientific lab explosion that grants you $@&%ing awesome superpowers. As a result of their accident, Eric and Woody Henderson – aka Quantum and Woody – must “klang” their wristbands together every 24 hours or both dissipate into nothingness. Which makes superhero-ing pretty awkward when you’re not on speaking terms at the moment. See, Eric has been keeping a pretty big secret: He knows who Woody’s birth father really is…and where he’s been hiding all these years.

With great power comes great sibling rivalry! This winter, you’ll believe two men and one goat can split a one bedroom apartment and still be a credible threat to evil and injustice everywhere when QUANTUM AND WOODY make headlines and take names! Star…

Marvel Releases BLACK PANTHER #1 Artgerm Variant – Your First Look!

This May, Marvel is celebrating the launch of BLACK PANTHER #1 by Ta-Nehisi Coates and Daniel Acuña with an Artgerm variant cover featuring Wakanda’s Shuri.

“Black Panther #1 is a creative challenge for me. My first few books were more philosophical, and while that still rings true here, this is a fast-paced, high-octane story,” said Coates. “And with Daniel Acuña’s art, I think people are really going to feel the energy and intensity here. I wanted people to feel like this is a really fresh storyline, and I think we succeeded in that. It’s meaty, it’s different, and it’s perfect for new readers just coming to the world of T’Challa and Black Panther.’’

Take a first look at the Artgerm variant cover for BLACK PANTHER #1 and get ready for an all-new story about the King of Wakanda!

Jeff Lemire Returns To Marvel With SENTRY!

This June, The Sentry is returning to the Marvel Universe, along with writer Jeff Lemire (Moon Knight) and Kim Jacinto (Avengers: No Surrender) in an all-new story!

“Having made his dramatic and unexpected return in Donny Cates’ DOCTOR STRANGE story, it was a no-brainer for us to move ahead on an actual SENTRY series! And it was my great fortune that Jeff Lemire was eager to lend his talents to the project, as it will live in the sort of off-kilter headspace that his MOON KNIGHT and Black Hammer projects exist in,” said SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “And Kim Jacinto, fresh off of AVENGERS: NO SURRENDER is the perfect artist to help visualize the worlds of this shining champion who’s also got a dark underbelly.”

“The Sentry is a fascinating character,” Lemire told Comicbook.com. “I absolutely loved the original Sentry series by Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee when it first came out, so I jumped at the chance to write the character. The Sentry has a lot of emotional depth and a lot f…

Marvel Announces DEADPOOL #1 by Skottie Young & Nic Klein

New creative teams. New series. New directions. New beginnings. It all kicks off this June with DEADPOOL #1!

Deadpool’s gone through A LOT these past few years, and while he’s accomplished a lot, the merc with the mouth may have taken his eye off his mercenary business for a bit too long,” said series editor Jake Thomas. “So how does a soldier for hire get business back up and running? The only way Deadpool knows how: Maximum effort, reasonable rates.”

“Skottie Young has one of the wildest, most unhinged creative minds I’ve ever worked with, and I mean that as the sincerest compliment I can muster,” Thomas continues. “His ideas for Wade are flying fast and furious, this book is going to be a non-stop chaos party as Wade battles his way back on top of the mercenary game using every dirty trick, cheap sales tactic, crass promotional ploy, and underhanded advantage he can…and he’ll be bringing along some old friends for help. As for Nic Klein, he’s one of my favorite artists working, an…
