- NYC Graphic currently has a tribute exhibition of art, poetry and memories in honour of the late Jack Kirby. Alongside an array of the King's work, contributors include; Steve Rude, Mike Allred, Rick Veitch and more. Check it out after the jump
- Marvel is launching a new 'Astonishing' line of in-continuity books, where the biggest creators take their biggest characters for a 6 month spin, before jumping off to let the next team in. Astonishing Spider-Man/Wolverine #1, and Astonishing X-Men #1 kick things off, but all that takes a backseat to the return of 'Mohawk Storm'. Finally, Ororo looks lethal again. Jump
- Newsarama has an exclusive preview of the 50th issue of Supergirl. Not only does it have a commemorative cover by the late Michael Turner, it also has a back-up tale written by movie 'Supergirl' herself, Helen Slater. Jump
- What does it take to make a zombie comic standout in an industry full of the undead in action? How about this Darwyn Cooke variant cover for upcoming Vertigo series I, Zombie. In one hit it sells the adventures of "Gwen" who must fufill the dying wish of those whose brains she eats, alongside her friends; a swinging 60's ghost; a paintball vampire posse; a smitten weredog, and a sexy but demented mummy.
