The Guardians of the Globe are Image Comics' major superhero team who are usually relegated to supporting characters in Invincible. Guarding the Globe: Volume 1 collects the six-issue miniseries chronicling their first solo comic book.
The four-issue miniseries Super Crooks by Mark Millar and Leinil Yu has just concluded. It is published by Marvel's Icon Comics, which is the division of the company that has been putting out the best comics lately. Also, out of Icon are Millar's Kick-Ass, Superior, Secret Service, and Nemesis, as well as Brilliant by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley (the team that brought us Ultimate Spider-Man). Icon has become an outlet for the superstars at Marvel to create completely original, creator-owned comics, which has allowed for fresh, new worlds and cinematic stories.
Within the first page of the book, I was immediately captivated by author Brit Sigh's use of the English language to describe a scene. In Torn in Two, he has crafted a psychological thriller full of twists and turns.
As far as I am concerned, if I was only able to have one comic book title in my pull list, that book would be Invincible. As the series approaches Issue #100, it still remains as fresh and exciting as ever.

The Phantom Menace is inarguably the worst movie in the Star Wars series. So, it was odd that Darth Maul, one of the few enjoyable factors of that movie, was killed off and would not fight another day . . . or so we thought.

Dear Carl's Jr.,
When I first heard about your recent “Dress as Spider-Man and receive a free Grilled Cheese Bacon Burger” promotion, I was very excited. As a life-long fan of Spider-Man and an ingester of cheeseburgers, I felt like this promotion was made for me; however, I was extremely disappointed as my visit to Carl's Jr. took a turn for the worse.
The conclusion to Star Wars: Blood Ties—Boba Fett is Dead is here. In the interest of not spoiling the ending for anyone, this review will be kept short.
MINOR SPOILERS BELOW
The adventures of the greatest intergalactic bounty hunter continue in Star Wars: Blood Ties - Boba Fett is Dead #2. A discerning eye will notice that, since this story takes place shortly before A New Hope, it is quite obvious that Boba Fett is, indeed, not dead. We were left with many questions after last issue—the greatest being how could he have survived a blaster shot to the head? Thankfully, we get the answer in this issue; however, by the end we are still left with more questions.
Comic book creator Josh Blaylock (Devil's Due Entertainment) chatted with Fanboy Comics Senior Contributor Drew Siragusa to discuss self-publising in the digital age, the Devil's Due relaunch, and the future of Mercy Sparx!
