Among the big movie trailers and the huge lines for fancy exclusive toys, it's pretty standard to mock that Comic-Con isn't really about the comics any more, but it's still home to the awards ceremony for one of the most prodigious awards in comics-dom: The Eisners. Here's your list of this year's winners!
Ever since Marvel's "All-New, All-Different" universe began, tensions between the Inhumans and Mutants of the Marvelverse have been high. Scott Summers supposedly died doing something to majorly tick the Inhumans off. Terrigen mists are sterilising and poisoning mutants. And now, those tensions are boiling over.
Civil War II has already been about making some pretty bad choices. But when it comes to a close, the leaders of either side of the conflict are going to make an even worse choice than the ones that lead to Civil War II in the first place: Trusting the not-so-trustworthy-at-the-moment Steve Rogers.
Last year, DC Comics announced a Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover series at Comic-Con, and this year they're doing it again -- but with a twist.
Look, that right there is one hell of a headline to have to write. But in a world where DC Comics is giving us all sorts of weird Hanna-Barbera series -- from profane cyberpunk Scooby Doo, to post-modern Flintstones, to sci-fi spy-fi in Future Quest -- I guess the thought of Garth Ennis writing a Wacky Races spin-off isn't too far out there.
Good news, fans of Blizzard's absurdly entertaining superhero-esque shooter Overwatch! The game's making the movie to physical comics next year, with the arrival of a new graphic novel that delves into the history of the Overwatch universe from Dark Horse.
T'Challa's world is getting a little bit bigger at Marvel Comics. Off of the back of Ta-Nehisi Coates' sublime Black Panther comic, Marvel has just announced a new supplementary series that will delve into the lives of important supporting characters in the main series -- and like Black Panther, it's attracting serious talent.
Video: Also? It's fun. It's a lot of fun. There's definitely some silliness here -- hell, Batman even smirks after drops a minor quip after kicking Mr Freeze in the head -- but anyone looking for some good, straight-up superhero-vs-supervillain action should be pleased with WB Animation's newest DC offering.
