Thief of Thieves

We have an exclusive first-look at the 12th issue of "Thief of Thieves," the Robert Kirkman and Skybound comic book about Conrad Paulson, a master thief who steals from other thieves under the guise of Redmond. The issue, with story by Kirkman and James Asmus and art by Shawn Martinbrough and Felix Serrano, hits stands on February 20.

"James Asmus has delivered a great twelfth issue of Conrad Paulson’s story," Kirkman tells MTV of the issue. "Conrad’s already strained relationship with his son Augustus is put to the test as the two work together to rescue Emma from the Cartel."

If you haven't been reading "Thief of Thieves" and you're a "Walking Dead" fan, now's the time to start; it's on track to join Kirkman's zombie drama as a possible AMC TV show.

In addition the preview, we have first word on "Thief of Thieves: Experience," a partnership between Skybound and Internet Explorer that immerses you in a heist of your own.

See the "Thief of Thieves" preview and get more details on the "Experience" below!

Walking Dead

by Kat Rosenfield

Arm your weaponry, put on a fashionably stained poncho, and get ready to play with dead things, y'all: "The Walking Dead" returns from its mid-season break on Sunday night, with a promise to bring back the action, resolve the cliffhangers, and give slavering fans the answers to such vital questions as "Will Merle and Daryl survive the torch-and-pitchfork-wielding Woodburians?", and "Can the new group at the prison be trusted?", and "Will the Andrea-Governor romance reach all new levels of grossout horror as the wily blonde cleans her beloved's oozing eye-less socket with scavenged Q-tips?" (Please, please let the answer to that last question be "No".)

But with two more days 'til "The Suicide King" hits the air, let's catch up on where we left off...

Witch Doctor

by Ryan Rigley

Last year, the comic book industry was introduced to the bizarre world of "Witch Doctor," a medical horror comic that has been described as "House" meets "Fringe." In his first mini-series, "Witch Doctor" creator Brandon Seifert introduced us to Dr. Vincent Morrow, a mean-spirited yet helpful occult physician with a knack for curing magical and/or medical ailments; including the likes of parasitic demons, faerie changelings, and Creatures from the Black Lagoon.

"There’s this archetype in supernatural fiction of a doctor who investigates the supernatural," Seifert reveals to MTV News in a recent interview about "Mal Practice," the latest "Witch Doctor" mini-series. "I always had an issue with that kind of character. I thought it was an interesting idea but I didn’t want him to just be a generic monster hunter. I wanted him to do it in a medical way."

After ten years, it's easy to forget how successful a movie was, but back in July of 2002, "Men in Black II" made a little over $440 million worldwide. Even a decade later, those numbers are hard to ignore.

Coming in at number four on our list of the most anticipated comic book movies of 2012, "Men in Black 3" reunites the team of Agents K (Tommy Lee Jones) and Agent J (Will Smith), still at it in the battle to keep Earth safe from unwanted alien visitors. Things get a little weird, however, when all traces of K disappear from MIB headquarters, and J has to travel back in time, Marty McFly-style, to save a younger K (played by Josh Brolin) from a premature demise.

"The Walking Dead" unleashes the third episode of its second season, "Save the Last One," this Sunday night (October 30). We left last week's episode with Shane and Otis desperately seeking a way to avoid becoming dinner for a small army of very, very hungry zombies, while Rick Grimes and his wife Lori watched hopelessly over Carl, still suffering from the accidental gunshot wound delivered by Otis.

So, what's next? Will Shane, already dead at this point in the comics, live to see another day, or has he finally met his maker? What's going to happen to Carl? And what kind of fantastic zombies will Greg Nicotero give us this week?

Beyond the break, read five teases of what's coming next. Be warned: some mild spoilers lie ahead.

Doctor WhoOver the last few years, "Doctor Who" fans have seen their favorite Time Lord tackle alien menaces from one end of history to the other, but in a new miniseries kicking off next week, The Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond take a page from your favorite fables.

Appropriately enough, "Doctor Who: A Fairytale Life" is written by Eisner-nominated "Jack of Fables" scribe Matt Sturges, with interior art from "Doctor Who: The Forgotten" illustrator Kelly Yates. The four-issue series sends The Eleventh Doctor and companion Amy Pond on an adventure that unfolds in a medieval fantasy world populated with knigts, castles, and yes, even a dragon.

I chatted up the "Fairytale Life" writer to get some details about The Doctor's latest adventure and pick his brain about the upcoming "Doctor Who" season premiere. You can also get an exclusive preview of the issue — which hits shelves April 20 — courtesy of IDW Publishing. Read More...

GhostbustersComic book fans are no strangers to big crossover events involving countless superheroes (and supervillains) spilling out of their own adventures and into each other's worlds, but it isn't often that we get to see some of our favorite movie heroes doing the same.

In IDW Publishing's "Infestation" event, a virus that turns its victims into hive-minded zombies escapes into the many dimensions of the publisher's universe — a series of worlds that includes those of "G.I. Joe," "Transformers," "Star Trek," and yes, even "Ghostbusters."

The first issue of "Ghostbusters: Infestation" hits shelves this week, and IDW has offered Splash Page readers an exclusive peek at what they have planned for Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, and the rest of the Ghostbusters when the "Infestation" arrives in their world. Read More...

Your HighnessDuring last year's New York Comic Con, we brought you the exclusive first look at the "Your Highness" comic that will arrive on shelves a few weeks before "Pineapple Express" director David Gordon Green's medieval comedy starring Danny McBride, Natalie Portman, Zooey Deschanel, and James Franco.

Much like the film itself, the Dark Horse Comics prequel comic will be co-written by McBride, with some help from Jeff Fradley and interior art by Sean Phillips and Gabriel Guzman.

The Dark Horse crew has provided Splash Page readers with an exclusive peek inside the comic, which hits shelves March 16. You can check it out below and read the full synopsis for the comic. Read More...

SupersizedJust when you thought it was safe to hit the drive-thru again,"Supersized: Strange Tales From A Fast-Food Culture" arrives on the shelf at your local comic shop.

Written by "Super Size Me" director Morgan Spurlock with writer Jeremy Barlow, "Supersized" is an original graphic novel that serves as a companion to Spurlock's 2004, Oscar-nominated documentary about fast food, culture, and the industry that feeds it. Tony Millionaire, Ron English, and a variety of other illustrators provide what's likely to be some truly stomach-churning visuals for the anthology, which includes both original stories and several that expand upon those in the original documentary.

"Supersized" hits shelves March 9, but the good folks at Dark Horse Comics have given Splash Page readers an exclusive preview of the book. Read More...
