One of the first series Marvel Comics will debut when it brings back the Marvel Knights imprint this fall is gonna be a doozy. The five-issue "Marvel Knights: Spider-Man" series by writer Matt Kindt ("Mind MGMT") and artist Marco Rudy ("Swamp Thing") will pit Spidey against 99 bad guys -- that's right, 99 -- in one big go.

That seems like a challenge for everyone involved, but Kindt and editor Thomas Brennan seemed to have a lot of fun with it. I chatted with them about the series and what's in store.

At Image Expo, Ed Brubaker was on hand to discuss his post-Marvel, creator-owned career by talking the future of his excellent horror/noir series "Fatale" as well as announcing his new, espionage, Cold War-centric series "Velvet."

"Velvet" re-teams Brubaker with his "Captain America" collaborator Steve Epting and, according to Image Comics, "a dark and evocative twist on the spy genre featuring a female protagonist."

I spoke with Brubaker about the real-world craziness that inspires the new arc of "Fatale," creating strong female characters, and how "Game of Thrones" inspired him.

Regular-Show-Season-2-Episode-17-See-You-There

Cartoon Network’s Emmy-winning animated series “Regular Show” has taken everything from 1980s video games to unicorns to getting the nerve to kiss the girl you like and blown them up (in some cases, literally) to absurd proportions in its continuing adventures of Mordecai, Rigby and the other disaster-prone employees of The Park.

With the show’s first two seasons coming out on Blu-Ray and DVD on July 16, we talked with series creator JG Quintel about everything from how the show has evolved to the presence of Thomas the Intern to plans for the future and more!

Check out our exclusive video interview with Snyder to find out who and more in the latest episode of new series "Batman: Zero Year - Behind The Bat"!

The civil rights movement of the 1950s and '60s has become such a pivotal part of American history that sometimes we forget that some of the brave people who were around to participate in the sit-ins and boycotts that directly led to big changes in how Americans view race are still here to tell their stories. Congressman John Lewis of Georgia not only knew Martin Luther King Jr., but also marched, sat in, spread the word about non-violence and organized.

At Image Expo on July 2, Matt Fraction showed off three separate, and very different projects. The first was the '50s-set, behind the scenes of a sci-fi TV show mystery with legendary artist (and famous "dirty old man") Howard Chaykin, "Satellite Sam." The next was the fantastical (and fantastic!) sex romp "Sex Criminals," with artist Chip Zadarsky. And last was "ODY-C," a gender-swapped, sci-fi re-imagining of Homer's "The Odyssey" with "Infinite Vacation" artist Christian Ward.

I spoke with Fraction backstage at the Expo about his work on each of these series, working with such different artists, the difficulties of writing sex comedies, and creating the perfect female hero.

Anthony Michael Hall wasn’t just nerdy before it was cool, he helped make nerdy cool. From Rusty in “National Lampoon’s Vacation” to Farmer Ted in “Sixteen Candles,” Brian the brain in “The Breakfast Club” and Gary in “Weird Science,” Hall gave audiences a nerdy outcast to love. And for more than a few of us in the ’80s, he gave us a nerd we could relate to perhaps more than we were willing to admit.
