• This months Collective Consciousness column is going to involve the CTG staff pitching their ideas for a Marvel/DC Crossover. Why have we decided this is going to be the focus of this months CC? I’ll let Stephen explain before he shares his pitch with us.

    There has been a lot of talk on how to save our favorite local comic shops across North America as the Covid-19 pandemic has spread causing massive non-essential store closures. We’ve all read the news and know the measures in place. I think for sure the retail market in general is not going to look
  • DC Comics reveals returnability plan for retailers amidst COVID-19 pandemic

    In just the last couple of weeks,, the comic book industry has taken a massive hit because of mandatory stay at home orders and fears of spreading the COVID-19 virus which has caused many local comic shops to either close or lose a massive amount of customers coming in. This week the industry hit a new low with Diamond Comic Distributors announcing they would not be sending out any new issues starting this week. Many publishers have been working on new ways to get comics out and
  • The bande dessinée (comics) world lost an icon this week. Albert Uderzo, co-creator and illustrator of Asterix & Obelix, has died. He was 92.
     
    I remember when I was kid, getting interested in books and literature, I’ve read a few books, whether it was for school or just for fun. But my first love was comics, but before Spider-Man and Batman, there was Asterix & Obelix. It’s the story of two best friends who live in an ancient Gaulish village in 50 BC who resists the oppressing Romans with a magic potion created by their druid which gives them super

    Guide to Joker War
    DC Comics


    Hey guys. I thought I would take the chance to give you an official Comics The Gathering checklist to the upcoming Joker War, which is set to be the biggest DC Multiverse crossover event since  The New 52 when Scott Snyder gave us the Night of the Owls story in Batman. Since James Tynion began his run in Batman with issue #86, he’s been laying out the groundwork for the epic and possible final battle between
  • In this months Collective Consciousness we’re going to take a look at tie-in issues. Love them or hate them there’s no denying they’re big business in the comics industry just now. So let’s see how the CTG writers feel about tie-ins.

    First off we’ll hear from our newest writer, Carlos R.

    I have mixed feelings about tie-in comics. On the one hand, these tales help expand the universe or an event's ramifications and on the other, publishers clearly see this as a form to have readers buy more of their
  • Harley Quinn and I have always had a warmish relationship; I love seeing her in reruns of Batman: The Animated Series, thoroughly enjoy her appearances in the DC animated films, and absolutely adored her role in Tom Taylor’s Injustice series. Beyond that, however, Harley’s own comics always seem to find their way to the bottom of my ever-growing list of things to read; when Suicide Squad happened in 2016, she shone as the film’s centerpiece. Brought to life by the
  • Comics: The Gathering recently got the opportunity to ask the legendary Si Spurrier a number of questions about his current run on Hellblazer, his new series Alienated, and writing for comics.



    Hi Simon. Thank you for taking the time out of your incredibly busy schedule to answer some questions for us.

    We’ll start off with an easy question, Si or Simon? Depending on the comics I’ve seen both, I’ve
  • I recently got the chance to talk to Emily Horn about the release of No One's Rose next month. An experienced writer, No One's Rose marks her debut entry into the world of comics. Co-written with Zac Thompson (Click here for our interview with him), illustrated by the talented Alberto Alburquerque, with colours by Raul Angulo and letters by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou.
