Part 1: I love Chris Ware. Bit redundant to say so this holiday season with everyone and their sister buying Building Stories, but with so much comic awesomeness that happened in 2012; between Charles Burn’s second installment to his X’ed Out trilogy, The Hive, and Brian K. Vaughn’s Saga…SAGA… It’s too easy for amazing comics [...]

Good LORD! A man has handcuffed himself to the lamp post in front of our store! He’s demanding that EVERY copy of his new comic be sold, and he will not allow himself to be released until that happens! Our own intrepid Dan Roth takes the Weekly Pulse outside for a rain-soaked interview with artist [...]
Matt D. (your gregarious host) and Morgan Pielli (your intrepid cameraman and director) took a trip to this year’s New York Comic Con. The sights! The sounds! The…smells! It’s a sensory overload, and you just never know when inspiration will strike..!
Been waiting for The Complete History Of Return Of The Living Dead to hit shelves since I heard about it at the last Monster Mania Convention I attended, which featured a pretty hefty amount of Return Of The Living Dead stars. I made sure to attend the ROTLD Q&A panel and boy, was I glad [...]
When I first heard about Fantagraphics’ Destroy All Movies The Complete Guide To Punks On Film I immediately knew this book was for me. Being a “punk” myself and a huge cult film nerd how could I not be excited. Destroy All Movies is an informative, hilarious and impossibly complete guide to every appearance of [...]

American Vampires co-writer Scott Snyder (w/ Stephen King) was kind enough to stop by Forbidden Planet NYC this past Wednesday to sign our copies of the premier issue. He also was kind enough to sit in front of the now-ever-present Lens of FPTransmissions for a little chat.
Ladygunn Magazine invited me to go on a blind date as part of their comics issue… Everyone gets ‘the call’ at least once in a lifetime. You know, the one where your best friend is like, “you have to go on a blind date with this dude, and I have to live vicariously through you [...]

More from that Mania.com, interview where I last excerpted a bit Mr. Moore’s thoughts on the Marvelman situation. This time, the legendary author takes DC to cause on their epic miniseries, Blackest Night. To say the least, he’s quite cranky. He frequently goes on tirades blaming readers, writers, artists and publishers for what he sees [...]
