Comic Book Moments of the Week for 04/16/14
Happy Easter! Things were a bit hectic last week but fear not, I've carried over all of last week's Moments of the Week into this week, to make a super sized chocolate coated edition! We've got new releases everywhere, from Hulk to Ultimate FF to Nightcrawler to Iron Fist, Superior Spider-Man ends just in time for Peter to sync with the movie, and a big change occurs to Gotham during Zero Year. So eat a chocolate bunny, polish it off with some marshmallow ducks, and hit the jump to check out all these moments before the diabetic shock kicks in.

Opening Contract - Alan's War

With last week’s column I talked about the idea of war as ‘hell’, a stygian conflict that damns those around it.

This week’s column focuses on a book that is the flip side to that coin – Alan’s War by Emmanuel Guibert.

Comic Book Moments of the Week for 04/02/14
April. A time usually reserved for  getting books in line for the summer events. But, this week at least, it seems to be about relaunches. Moments of the Week takes a look at the delayed Inhuman series, Aquaman & the Others, and Ultimate Spider-Man ends/begins a new Ultimate chapter. As always, more after the jump.

Opening Contract - The Other Side #1

Another week, another war comic. But I offer no apologies, as this time around I’ll be yakking about one of the best war comics of the modern era, The Other Side #1 by Jason Aaron, Cameron Stewart, Dave McCaig and Pat Brosseau from Vertigo Comics.

After the cut I’ll unpack the panel and discuss some of its influences both acknowledged and unintended.

Opening Contract - Fell #3

As we walk the streets of the modern city do we ever stop to think about the phantoms that surround us? Not the ghosts of old, not the poltergeists or spirits of campfire stories, or the residue left by the onwards march of history, but the phantoms of our own creation.

Join me after the cut as I ponder this question and more as I cover Fell #3 by Warren Ellis, Ben Templesmith and Chris Eliopoulous from Image Comics.

Spoilers for Fell and Ellis’ novel Gun Machine are contained within.

Fireside Chat with Ryan K. Lindsay
Pull up a chair, dear reader, for we have something special on tap for today's Fireside Chat.  This time around, we're speaking with our very own Ryan K. Lindsay about Headspace, his brand new series from Monkeybrain Comics on Comixolgy.  Having dropped this week (and available online now), Headspace is a mindbender of a comic and Ryan was kind enough to talk us through some of the more enigmatic portions of the story, as well as talking about his talented collaborators, his love affair with comics, and much more.  So grab your favourite comfy chair, curl up, and let's dive in.
