‘Starlight’ #1: Millar & Parlov Send A Pretty Postcard From A Place You’ve Already Visited [Review]
By Kevin Church
Did you like The Incredibles and Flash Gordon? Are you completely unaware of the existence of Grant Morrison’s take on English sci-fi icon Dan Dare?

Tom Scioli And John Barber Talk ‘Transformers vs. G.I. Joe’ [Interview]
By Chris Sims
Transformers vs. G.I. Joe is a crossover that sells it self, but the downside of that is that it’s been done often enough that it can be difficult to get excited about the next version. Unless, of course, you tell me that it’s going to be co-written, drawn, and lettered by Tom Scioli, the man who wrote the line “Robot Dracula is an efficient torturer” and rendered all other comics obsolete. If you do that, you have my attention, and that’s exactly what they did when they announced that Scioli and John Barber were kicking off an ongoing series about the two teams, set to launch with #0 on Free Comic Book Day.
To find out more about how the project came together, I spoke to Scioli and Barber about how the project came together, Scioli’s massive pitch document, and how their life-long and relatively recent love of the comics influenced their storytelling. Believe it or not, I don’t think we talk about Destro at all.
