Image Comics’ CHEW marks the first quarter of its run with a special 15th issue CHEW is a certified hit, and to celebrate CHEW’s 15th issue, which marks the end of the first quarter of the book’s run and hits store shelves September 29, writer John Layman and artist Rob Guillory are thanking fans with a slew of special features.  

When I sat down to jot down a few Batman ideas for this week, a few topics instantly rose to the top of the pile as being worthy of discussion – the character himself, my favorite Batman story and villains. See, Batman has the best villains. I can see someone making a strong case for the Flash Rogues. Heck, I love those villains as much as the next guy. But when it comes to pure, bloody psychopaths, no collection of foes can top Batman’s.  

Next on our list of amazing artists who’ve stopped by to talk Batman is Dustin Nguyen, who’s put together an impressive run on Batman, first with DETECTIVE COMICS and now on BATMAN: STREETS OF GOTHAM. And as you can see from the piece below, not only is Dustin one of the nicest guys in comics, he’s a damn fine artist as well. Let’s see what he has to say. Take it away, Dustin:  

We’ve already gotten a glimpse at Andy Kubert’s contribution to the anniversary epic that is BATMAN #700. But why stop there? Now, we close out the day with comments from the mega-talented David Finch, who also pencils a sequence in Grant Morrison’s time-twisting tale of The Batman. What say you, David?  

Image Comics reprints THE WALKING DEAD COMPENDIUM, VOL. 1 just in time for the AMC series Starting this October, you’ll be able to watch The Walking Dead on AMC. You can prepare to join The Walking Dead by picking up the new printing of THE WALKING DEAD COMPENDIUM, VOL. 1 TP on September 1.  

If you picked up your copy of JONAH HEX a the comic shop today, you noticed that the issue featured an exclusive interview between JONAH HEX movie director Jimmy Hayward and the writers of the JONAH HEX comic series, Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti.  

With BATMAN #700 upon us, we’re continuing our spotlight on all things Batman. Today, we look at one of the hero’s key stories. Everyone knows what happened to make Bruce Wayne become Batman. But the story had never been told with such flourish and panache. Originally posted in DC Universe- http://dcu.blog.dccomics.com/ BATMAN: YEAR ONE, for me, is hands down the best piece of super-hero storytelling I’ve ever read.  

We’d be remiss if in all this BATMAN #700 hoopla we didn’t go right to, well, the source of it all: writer Grant Morrison. Grant’s been driving the Dark Knight to some amazingly different and intense places, and it only gets more engaging in the pages of BATMAN #700, which features the superstar writer teaming with a cabal of amazing artists, including Tony Daniel, Andy Kubert, David Finch and frequent collaborator Frank Quitely. So what does he have to say about not only the character, but the issue? Take it away, Grant!  

Well day two of the ComiCon was even better than the first day.  I was able to connect with many more artists than yesterday, I think with the lack of people attending the show, the artists were still sleeping at their tables for the most part :)  Today all the artists seemed more lively, the people were just streaming into the show. **Grail Quest Update –                          After going through and asking AGAIN if any of the vendors had a reasonably priced issue of New Mutants #98, DRAGON LADY COMICS was the only vendor able to assure me that they had a copy withinn my price range at thier store in the warehouse area.  All the other vendors prices ranged from $50.00 to as high...
