Howdy from Dogpatch: The Life and Work of Al Capp

If you were to mention the name “Al Capp” to a modern comics reader, there is a good chance it would mean nothing to them at all, or maybe they would think he was the British guy with the checkered hat on the bag of hot fries. But for several decades in the 20th century, Al Capp's creation Li'l Abner was one of the most popular and beloved works in any medium, and Capp himself was a household name and national celebrity.

Fantastic Five: Funniest Newspaper Strips

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

In the 100-plus years that comic strips have served to brighten up newspapers, there have been various different genres to populate the pages of the comics section: adventure, soap opera, puzzles, Ripley's Believe It or Not, and so on. But there's a reason that section gets called the funny pages. No genre has dominated newspaper comics quite like the gag-a-day humor format. This video counts down five of the funniest, cleverest, and best drawn humor comics in newspaper history.

Long-Ago Times and Far-Away Galaxies: Celebrating The Visual Inspiration of Ralph McQuarrie!

Ralph McQuarrie is one of people whose name may not be known to the public at large, but whose imagination gave rise to some of the most indelible, incredible imagery in all pop culture. He was a designer, a concept artist, and a creator who could take fantastic ideas and give them form, serving an essential role in the making of classic films and TV shows.

Born on this day in 1929, McQuarrie designed the spaceships seen in Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters Of The Third Kind and E.T., he conceived the look of the original Battlestar Galactica, he was responsible for a central image in Raiders Of The Lost Ark, he production designed Cocoon, and he worked as visual consultant for Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. But inarguably, his major achievement was defining the look of the Star Wars universe.

Fantastic Five: Best Adventure Strips

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

These days, if people remember that they still make newspaper comics at all, they probably think of gag-a-day humor strips, like Garfield, or one of the few remaining soap opera strips, like Apartment 3G, or whatever Mark Trail is. But in the 1930s and '40s, the adventure strip ruled the roost. Two-fisted men and women sockin' jaws, flyin' planes, and rightin' wrongs, three panels at a time. This video counts down five of the best, most exciting, and most beautifully rendered adventure strips of all time.

The 100 Greatest X-Men Of All Time

Who are the greatest X-Men of all time? To mark the release of X-Men: Apocalypse, we came up with the ultimate list of the top 100 characters ever to wear the X as part of the extended family of Professor Charles Xavier's Westchester school. These are the very best heroes (and sometimes villains) in more than fifty years of stories about Marvel mutants fighting for a world that hates and fears them!

The final list was determined by a combination of our expert panel's rankings and our readers' votes, and as you might expect, the results offer an amazing selection of icons, powerhouses, and gorgeous freaks --- not to mention a few unexpectedly popular weirdoes. But it wouldn't be the X-Men without embracing the appeal of the weird.
