As is often the case with creators who earn wide acclaim for their creator-owned work, Matt Kindt is suddenly everywhere. In addition to being the writer of "Marvel Knights: Spider-Man" and Valiant Comics' upcoming "Unity" series, the "Mind MGMT" creator is also taking over DC Comics' "Justice League of America" for a an arc to coincide with "Forever Evil," starting with issue #8.

We spoke to him over the phone about transitioning to mainstream superhero comics and what it's like writing about a world where the heroes, at least by all appearances, are mostly dead.

It's almost surreal to have "Hi Charles, it's me, Stan" coming out of your phone and the voice on the other end is one of the pillars of geeekdom. But recently, I got to chat with comics legend--and writer and sometime actor--Stan Lee about his work on a new contest that will see two filmmakers earn the opportunity to work on "Marvel's The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron."

Doritos is holding their annual "Crash the Superbowl" contest, inviting would-be filmmakers to create their own Doritos ad. Lee will be part of a judge's panel that looks at the five finalist, with the remaining two homemade commercials getting to air during the Superbowl, and the pair of directors earning a job on set during the filming of 2014's "Avengers" sequel.

Oh, look, we're getting a new "Harry Potter" movie. Nope, still not over that! But, what does the fandom (and, to be honest, by fandom we mean mainly Tumblr) have to say on the topic? May contain cursewords or other inappropriate for work language as this is, after all, Tumblr.

Each week, Matt Wilson, co-host of the War Rocket Ajax podcast and author of the Supervillain Field Manual, examines a major comic news item and reviews four of the week's comic book releases.

Last week, DC Comics found itself in the unenviable position of being the roadblock to the first-ever lesbian wedding in superhero comics, and as a result, the creative team on "Batwoman," J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman, left the title.

Kleefeld's FanthropologyFor the past five years or so, the name of Herbert Chavez has popped into my view on a roughly annual basis, and it's always in the exact same context. He's the gent from Calamba City, Philippines who's undergone multiple plastic surgeries to look as much as possible like Superman.

The mainstream articles almost always read exactly the same, regardless of the outlet or the year, so I won't belabor all the details here, but the short version is that he really, really, really likes DC Comics' Superman and struck a deal with a local plastic surgeon to get these procedures done for free in exchange for doing promotion work for him. My guess is that each spate of articles is prompted by a new procedure having gone well. Read More...

Well, he's done it again. Tom Hiddleston has destroyed lives everywhere with his persistent charm and seeming perfection. Fangirls and boys were rendered speechless early Thursday afternoon due to the inability to stop screaming about Tom's too-good-to-be-true answers. Persistent weeping and ovarian explosions were reported. Seriously, this guy gave us an anti-bullying message, Shakespeare, and Spanish all within the same Q & A - is there anything he can't do?

Okay, guys, I know, I know, new "Harry Potter" movie. We get it. But we need to take a deep breath, and sit back down and wrap ourselves in our official "Harry Potter" towels because this is going to take some time to make, and it's not like it's coming out tomorrow anyway. Relax. There are other fandoms for you to freak out about... like, oh, "Welcome to Night Vale". And oh, this fanart. Have you seen it? No? Well, you're about to, because it is flawless.
