COMICS ALLIANCE PRESENTS HERE’S THE THING, EPISODE 1: WHY ‘IMPULSE’ #3 IS THE BEST SINGLE-ISSUE STORY EVER
If our weekly Ask Chris column isn’t enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: This week, we’re launching Here’s The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he sits in his living room under a framed portrait of Destro, drinking a cup of coffee and sharing his opinion on comic books.
This week in the debut episode, Chris tackles the question of what the greatest single issue of all time is — or at least, his favorite, same thing, right? — and declares it to be Mark Waid and Humberto Ramos‘s Impulse #3 from 1995. Check out the video to find out why!
The Flash’s TV Costume Looks Built For Speed

Back in 1990 when John Wesley Shipp suited up to be a TV version of The Flash, his costume looked exactly like something out of the comic books of the time. It also looked downright impossible to run in.
The new Flash series on The CW starring Grant Gustin looks to be striking something of a balance between fealty for the look of the source material and functionality in the first image of the full suit released Tuesday by DC comics.

As the only video game that we’re likely to get in the forseeable future that includes Arm-Fall-Off-Boy andthe KGBeast, Scribblenauts Unmasked is one of my most anticipated releases of the year. Now, though, there’s another incentive to get excited about it: When the game comes out this fall, it’ll come with a digital comic by Josh Elder and Adam Archer about Batman, Superman and company duking it out with their evil opposites.
