Week in Review: An Eisner Win, Princess Knight and Pokemon X/Y
Hail to the King - A story so nice that they nominated it twice, Brandon Graham's King City took home the 2013 Eisner Award for "Best Graphic Album - Reprint." Although Image Comics handled the reprint, we originally published the series in 2007 - when it also received an Eisner nomination - and we are beyond thrilled that Brandon's terrific tale is receiving the accolades it deserves. Omedetou gozaimasu!
Old Visitor from Another Planet
One of the themes of the 2013 Comic-Con, which ended last week, was the 75th anniversary of the most popular space alien of American culture: Kal-El of Krypton, a.k.a. Superman.
Superman was the first comic-book character to translate to animation, only a few years after his creation in 1938. Starting in 1941, the Fleischer studios started turning out Superman short cartoons, which at the time was revolutionary. They were not the first cartoons to feature human characters, but they were the first ones to strive for a more realistic depiction of the human figure (thanks in large part to rotoscoping). They were also essentially non-comedic, presenting mini-adventures instead of laughs, sometimes involving wartime themes.

OTAKUSWAG: Revisiting Robotech with Barbara Goodson
In 1985, renowned mecha anime Robotech made its debut and would go on to spawn a generation of fans around the world.

With model kits, comic books and t-shirts bearing its logo, Robotech firmly cemented itself in the hearts and minds of otaku everywhere, but has remained mostly dormant since 2006's Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles.
