When Heroes Go Bad

In honor of Uncanny X-Force receiving a perfect 10 for issue #18's conclusion to The Dark Angel Saga, we wanted to take a look at other heroes whose fall from grace made for a great read. There are many reasons why a supposed good guy might go bad – fear, brainwashing, cosmic birds – but what makes them so exciting is just how far down we get to see each hero fall. Check out the list at IGN!

Joey Esposito talks 'Footprints,' IGN, Monster Boinking

Writer Joey Esposito called in to talk with Broken Frontier about his debut comic book  Footprints published by 215 Ink. In this interview he gives some details about the noir/supernatural comic, discusses monsters getting it on, and sheds some light on the trials and tribulations of small press comics. In the interest of transparency, it should be noted that he is the comics editor at and that I do freelance writing for IGN, making him my editor. However, that doesn’t mean I went easy on him...

8 Comic Scribes to Put on Your Radar

by Joey Esposito & Joshua Yehl

There's nobody on the planet that doesn't get some sort of kick out of being able to tell their friends that they liked something before it got insanely popular. You better believe there are boatloads of people saying that about things like The Walking Dead, Geoff Johns, or hell, even Twilight.

That's why IGN Comics is giving you the advantage; we're spotlighting 8 writers that are set to blow up in the coming years. Some might be completely new names to you, and some you might already love, but one thing is for sure: their stars are rising quickly.  Check it out on IGN!

NYCC 2011 Recap: A Great Deal of Fun and Entertainment

NYCC 2011 Recap: A Great Deal of Fun and Entertainment

This weekend’s New York Comic Con was a blaze of announcements, celebrities, and video games. In terms of booths, there was not much difference compared to July’s San Diego Comic Con, so it fell on each exhibitor to make up for it with new content, and I am happy to report most of them succeeded. Hear about the rest of my trip at Broken Frontier!

Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man #3

Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man #3

Miles attempts to come to grips with his newfound spider-powers and is forced into action when he sees a building on fire. Brian Michael Bendis puts his rookie hero into his first hot spot and while his actions do prove to be sufficiently heroic, the pressure of his father’s approval weighs down on him more than a super-villain ever could. Despite the brief scene of danger, this is a slower moving issue that highlights drama over standard comic book fare. Keep reading at Broken Frontier!

Review: Ultimate Comics: X-Men #2

Ultimate Comics: X-Men #2

All mutants are being hunted for the crimes Magneto committed against the world, and while this takes place in the separate Ultimate universe, it feels like the most genuine X-Men story in years. Instead of living in a state-of-the-art school and getting experience in advanced training rooms with powerful, seasoned heroes watching over, Kitty, Bobby, and Johnny are living in sewers and battling against superior foes, desperately trying to save their dwindling numbers. Nick Spencer has given this rag-tag team of mutants a real cause to fight for, and it rocks. Keep reading at Broken Frontier!
