Comics journalism has been gaining ground in recent years, and Erin Polgreen is tapping this with the December 3 launch of her new magazine, Symbolia, which she cofounded with Joyce Rice.

MTV Geek spoke with Polgreen to learn more about the launch, what types of stories people can expect, and what she hopes the future will hold for the magazine. Read More...

Apple has spent a lot of time (and money) to make sure we all now how cool Siri is. Though they may have had some trouble with the new Maps app, Siri has always been a pretty well-oiled machine and the iOS 6 update made the soft-spoken companion even better.

Apple seemed pretty excited to show off their new Maps app (replacing Google's) that launched with iOS 6, but now that everyone's had a chance to get their hands on it, things are looking pretty sour. Not only are some well-known locations labeled completely wrong in the new app, some are entirely absent, while others have been duplicated or moved.

Picture an entire "New Comics Day" of titles all at the convenience of your fingertips and tablet device. Now imagine this as a legal option.

Well, we might not be too far away from this reality. Magazine publishers Condé Nast, Hearst, Meredith, News Corporation and Time Inc. have teamed up to present the "Next Issue" app, which would allow users to read full issues of 27 different magazines for a $10 a month subscription fee. Users would also have access to all the back issues of that year, and have the option of getting a "premium" edition that would include such heavy-hitters as Entertainment Weekly and the New Yorker.
