A brand new promo spot has arrived for the highly anticipated mid-season premiere episode of The Walking Dead, titled “Nebraska”, which shows us that things won’t be starting off well for Rick’s group of survivors when the show returns on February 12th.

Mind you, for the first couple of issues, this was a solid approach for a series of this magnitude as all of the book’s characters were crossing paths for the first time and it was exciting to see these initial encounters while faced with a growing extraterrestrial threat.

The supposed series would include Damian Wayne, Jason Todd, Tim Drake and Dick Grayson while featuring a lot less of their Dark Knight mentor. Continue Reading
Aaron talks a lot about himself and some about this week’s comics! He takes on the “Robama” Saga of last week and the Anime-niacs that swiftly defended their honor. Tri-force Mike is there, but he really doesn’t do much. Is that part of his charm? We both suggest you try Remender’s first Secret Avengers issue and Jeff Lemire of Animal Man fame’s Sweet Tooth. Also comic’s #1 book came out, JUSTICE LEAGUE!
Y: The Last Man is a comic book written by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Pia Guerra and was originally published by Vertigo.
