Dark Horse and TFAW present an art show by the people who make your comics

You already know it takes tons of people to produce the comics you love, and not just writers, artists, colorers, letterers, and editors. There’s also marketing folks, financial coordinators, and more. And in every department you can find talented artists who produce art in their own time that isn’t featured in the comics you read. And this month Dark Horse and Sequential Art Gallery + Studio in Portland will make sure some of this art gets seen. See below for the official word from Dark Horse on Work Horse: Art by the People Who Make Your Comics.

Review – The Complete Marvel Cosmos: With Notes by the Guardians of the Galaxy

Have you been wishing you could just get away lately? Take a trip somewhere far away? I mean really far away?

And your copy is extra special, because the Guardians of the Galaxy got ahold of it first and scribbled all kinds of notes in it.

Seriously, the writing in this book is already more interesting than what you’d usually get from a fictional guide book, but the quips and insults the Guardians keep throwing at each other are what makes it brilliant.

Review – Wonder Woman: The True Amazon

I’ll admit, my opinion is pretty divided regarding this book, and I have a feeling that’s going to be the opinion of a lot of readers.

See below for a spoiler-free review of Wonder Woman: The True Amazon.
