A lot of actors claim to read the comics associated with their films or shows, but Doctor Who‘s Peter Capaldi (better known as the 12th Doctor) proved once again how far his love for the show goes. As any talented gentleman would, the actor created a painting inside of a personalized card meant for comic artist Rachel Stott, whose pen currently graces the pages of the Doctor Who series out by Titan Comics.

Here’s what the good Doctor had to say:

Artist Billy Butcher‘s “Tales From The Smith” series features Robert Smith of The Cure on the covers of classic horror comics, with his lyrics being used as the text.

As Butcher explains, “This frightening series of strange tales is a homage to the goth legend who truly taught us love and darkness”.

No lie, this art landed me on Fascination Street. See more below.

bttf deadpool and cable

Marvel gave the world a sneak peek at the cover of “Deadpool and Cable: Split Second” #2 from artist Reilly Brown. I wonder why they picked today of all days? Weird.

Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait until January to read this issue. Unless, you know, you have a time machine handy.

Dragon Ball Z already allows for the fusion of characters to create more powerful characters, so it’s not surprising that French artist Pierre-Marie Lenoir gave some thought to what would happen in a fusion between DBZ and some of your favorite comic book characters.

His Behance project, aptly titled “Fusions”, does just that. Batman, Robin, Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Conan all go into the mix.

Check out the results after the break.

zim edit

Great news for Invader Zim fans. Zim will be returning on July 1st in a new comic book series from Oni Press in partnership with Zim creator Jhonen Vasquez and Nickelodeon. Vasquez notes:

“I’m always confused when people say how much they miss Invader Zim because the show never stopped running in my head, and then I remember everyone else isn’t in my head. I try to imagine the world for all those people who don’t know what Zim’s been up to since the show went off the air and it makes me shudder. How can people live that way? Hopefully this comic helps make the world a better place.”

star wars farewell dark horse

Dark Horse Comics has to say farewell to the Star Wars universe. The license to produce Star Wars comic books is returning to Marvel, but Dark Horse isn’t letting go without a party. They’re offering one heck of a good-bye sale with 50% off all digital Star Wars comics.  Then there’s he mother of all deals, the MegaBundle. You can purchase Dark Horse’s entire digital Star Wars library for $300. That’s 28,353 pages that would normally retail for $2,714.34. Wow.

The deal runs through December 31st, and Dark Horse states that all Star Wars titles purchased by January 1st will remain in your digital collection.

dc comic movie posters 1

DC Comics is launching a shiny new batch of variant covers in March, and they’re all about movie posters. The fun designs insert DC characters into posters from movies such as Free Willy (yep, you read that correctly), The Mask, Gone With the Wind, Beetlejuice, and Purple Rain. Heroes and villains on the covers include Aquaman, Batgirl, the Joker, and so many more. I can practically hear the money falling out of the wallets of collectors.

See more creative variant covers after the break.

Marvel Comics’ return to the Star Wars universe begins on January 14th 2015. The license to publish Star Wars comics was in the hands of Dark Horse Comics but that changed once Disney (Marvel’s parent company) purchased Lucasfilm.

I expected the launch of Marvel’s Star Wars series to be big, but it could be huge. reports that Star Wars #1 will sell over a million copies when it hits shelves on January 15th. If their information is true, that would make Star Wars #1 the best selling comic in the last 20 years by a wide margin. The Force is with Marvel.

deadpool variant

The new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comic was unveiled yesterday and Clark Gregg showed off both the main cover (which has a monkey) and this Deadpool variant with the comment that “Even Deadpool does some carving.”

If only the Deadpool film rights weren’t owned by Fox!

Still, it’s a killer variant and the main cover is pretty cool too. You can check it out after the break.
