Every Monday on G&C I’ll be previewing the new comics I’m most looking forward to in the coming week. These are the comics that I expect will be fun, exciting, and worth your monies.

“Adventure Time: The Flip Side” is a topsy-turvy mini-series that upended my initial expectations.

You heard right, after over two decades of Star Wars being published by Dark Horse Comics, the franchise will be making the move to Marvel in 2015.  Disney, who purchased Lucasfilm in October of 2012, has announced that they intend to move the Star Wars publishing license to Marvel in a statement sent out by Mike Richardson (Founder, Dark Horse Comics) and Jeremy S. Atkins (Director of Public Relations,  Dark Horse Comics).
