What age is appropriate to take kids to their first comic convention? Perhaps parents have already brought their newborns to a comic book convention or cosplayed as Alana and Marko from Saga. Perhaps you’ve attended a con as a family of Deadpools.
Surprisingly, the penultimate episode for the first season of American God was missing the show’s protagonist and antagonist. Shadow and Mr. Wednesday were nowhere to be seen; although, Wednesday’s messengers made an appearance.
The Bat-signal went dark last Friday as TV’s Batman, Adam West, passed away after a long struggle with leukemia. He passed at his home in Los Angeles surrounded by his loved ones. West is survived by his wife Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren, and two great grandchildren.
I love unusual superheroes, and indie comic book writer Matt Garvey and artist Dizeve, bring us one in The Ether #1.

The Eternal Empress has been fighting against the countries of Saia for more than a century, and the red-tailed minions have been all too eager to punish those that halt her progress: either by failing to farm the lands or stealing food. The first issue introduces a young woman’s path as she struggles with her meager existence under the Eternal Empress, while strange visions cause her to question the life she’s living, and the glimmering thoughts push her to escape.
