We've all seen 'em - the kids with hats with ears, the kids wearing tails. Hell, you may even be one. Nothing wrong with that. Annie and Verti are cosplayers using an unsuspecting reality to make a movie.

Batman Eternal #1

Batman Eternal #1
by Scott Snyder / Jason Fabok

I know, the world needs another Batman series like it needs more Russian aggression. But this new weekly series is helmed by Scott Snyder who's been writing some of the best Batman comics in decades.

Future Shock #7

If you're in the mood for cool, arty, cutting-edge sci-fi comics, you really need to check out this anthology series edited by Josh Burggraf.

Hup #1

Hup #2

Hup #2
by Robert Crumb

Yes, a lot of Crumb's stuff has been collected into book form, but there's just something so much more satisfying reading his stuff in traditional comic book format. Here Crumb Comics has started reprinting his old Hup series.
