If you’re a Twilight fan, you’ve probably experienced New Moon in more than one form already, but now you have another. The first installment of the New Moon graphic novel—based on the story by Stephenie Meyer with art by Young Kim—will be available on April 30. In the first volume, Bella and Edward find themselves facing new obstacles, including a devastating separation, the mysterious appearance of dangerous wolves roaming the forest in Forks, a terrifying threat of revenge from a female vampire, and a deliciously sinister encounter with Italy’s reigning royal family of vampires: the Volturi.

Celebrated science fiction author Orson Scott Card also happens to be a fervent, outspoken opponent of same-sex marriage — and now the controversy sparked by his unpopular views has affected Card’s upcoming Adventures of Superman project.
Card has been opposed to gay marriage for decades; in 2009, he joined the board of directors of the National Organization for Marriage, a conservative group dedicated to “protect[ing] marriage and the faith communities that sustain it.” When DC announced last month that Card would co-write an issue of Adventures of Superman, the news immediately stoked fan ire. A petition urging DC to sever ties with Card has garnered over 16,000 signatures on the LGBT activist site All Out; other supporters of gay rights have called for a boycott of the comic itself.
Sean Howe’s recent history of Marvel Comics: The Untold Story was only the latest chronicle of one theme that runs through every honest assessment of the lives of comic book artists: That they have been since the dawn of the industry underpaid, overworked, and exploited. Add to this the art-world prejudice that these men (and they were mostly men, at least in the 1950s/60s world of superhero, horror, and romance comics) are lesser talents than fine artists, and you can see why the gorgeous, poignant new book Comics About Cartoonists: Stories About the World’s Oddest Profession, edited and designed by Craig Yoe (IDW/Yoe Books) exerts a potent fascination.

Just before the film version of Isaac Marion’s alternately hilarious and gruesome novel Warm Bodies hits the big screen, Marion will give us another bloody taste of his zombie-infested world. The New Hunger, a prequel to Warm Bodies, will be released as an eBook Jan. 28 exclusively by Zola Books. It’ll give fans an intriguing look at brain-muncher-with-a-heart-of-gold R — played by Nicholas Hoult in the movie — before he fell in love with Julie (Teresa Palmer), who’s also featured in the prequel.
The New Hunger will take place soon after the natural disasters and government collapse that made Earth a crawling ground for hungry corpses. Separated from their parents, 16-year-old Nora and her younger brother Addis fight to escape zombies that are pursuing them. Meanwhile, R wakes up in the woods with no memory of who he is, and Julie is stuck on an odd road trip with her parents.
Before the publication date, EW has a sneak peek at The New Hunger. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY »

DC’s long-running Fables kicks off a new story arc with next week’s 125th issue. It’s titled “Snow White” — which is probably not a good thing, since having a story arc named after you on Fables usually means you’re about to experience something serious and/or horrifying. We’re stoked to share a preview of the issue with you, which features a cool-looking car which runs…on blood. But isn’t oil technically blood, when you get right down to it? Answer: No, and get a job, you hippie.

The (first) Death Star has been destroyed. The Empire remains in dogged pursuit of the Rebel Alliance. And the only cause Han Solo still seems to care about is Han Solo.
Such is the landscape of Dark Horse Comics’ latest Star Wars series, written by Brian Wood, drawn by Carlos D’Anda, and set in the heady days between the first film (a.k.a. Star Wars, a.k.a. Star Wars: A New Hope, a.k.a. Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope) and the second film (a.k.a. The Empire Strikes Back, a.k.a….oh, you get the idea). READ FULL STORY »
