So What's Going On With the X-Men? So What's Going On With the X-Men?

Marvel recently announced that it was bringing back Uncanny X-Men, starting it off with a ten-part weekly story called “DISASSEMBLED.” But what brought us to here and what have the X-Men been doing up until now?

The second part of the B7/Big Finish production of Dan Dare dropped on BBC Radio 4 Extra yesterday with Dan, Digby and Peabody in the clutches of the malevolent Mekon. Well, we knew that was coming.

Short circuiting the epic flight to Venus Short circuiting the epic flight to Venus

What the heck have I been listening to? First off, I enjoyed it. BBC Radio 4 Extra served up a nice slice of ripping space flight adventure in the first episode of the B7/Big Finish Dan Dare. Ed Stoppard plays a cocky test pilot with an axe to grind conscripted for a mission of interplanetary exploration.

Some More Comic Related News from SDCC Some More Comic Related News from SDCC

Since io9 is only covering the super important events at SDCC and not many comic-related stuff, I’ve decided to consolidate all of that over here. There have been a lot of interesting announcements for both Marvel and DC over the past two days, so here goes:

The new digital-first Jessica Jones is a treat for fans of both the character and good mysteries The new digital-first Jessica Jones is a treat for fans of both the character and good mysteries

So back in November, I recommended that Kelly Thompson take over writing Jessica Jones when Bendis left. I not only turned out to be right, but Bendis himself asked that Thompson take over the book. Which I’m glad he did, because her first two issues (released on Wednesday as an oversized 40-page digital-first issue)…

Teenagers On the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown: Outpost Zero and She Could Fly Teenagers On the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown: Outpost Zero and She Could Fly

Two comic book series started this week that blew me away, not just with their premise and writing, but with the intelligent and thoughtful way they depicted their teenage protagonists. They were Outpost Zero and She Could Fly and I highly recommend both.

Some Other Superhero Weddings That Went Off With or Without Complications Some Other Superhero Weddings That Went Off With or Without Complications

Superhero comics, as we know, are just big soap operas. And there is nothing that soap operas love more than a wedding. In fact, we’ve had two weddings (from both Marvel and DC) in recent weeks that have, well, had their complications: Marvel’s wedding between Kitty Pryde and Piotr Rasputin and DC’s wedding between…

Why I Love the Fantastic Four Why I Love the Fantastic Four

Ever since it became apparent that the Fox-Disney deal was actually, really going to go through and that we might get an actual MCU version of the Fantastic Four, I’ve been excited, anxious, and trepidatious. The Fantastic Four are one of my absolute favorite comic book characters and I’ve been thinking about why I…

The Unstoppable Wasp is Coming Back! The Unstoppable Wasp is Coming Back!

One of the best Marvel comics of 2017 was The Unstoppable Wasp by writer Jeremy Whitley and artist Elsa Charrieter (and later Veronica Fish and Ro Stein). It was fun and energetic, telling the story of Nadia, Hank Pym’s daughter from his first wife (the wife who had been kidnapped by Russian spies, so she was…

Picking up a frozen hero Picking up a frozen hero

Is it just me or does a classic sequence from The Avengers issue 4 have a resemblance to a scene in Avengers: Infinity War? Just swapping submarines for spaceships and floating frozen Cap for a floating frosty Thor and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for erotically sensitive Guardians.

Happy Birthday Starlord Happy Birthday Starlord

Forty years and one week ago, an amazing science fiction themed comic landed on newsagent counters. It had some compelling features, some of which are still running today, crisp paper and jazzy painted artwork. This was Starlord.
