A solid day of comic book releases. Everything from the juggernaut sales leader of Batman to new offerings from Marvel and indies. Personally, I have several DC titles to pick up today but I'm curious about two indies.

Mob war erupts in Chinatown! In a desperate final gambit, New York’s criminal underworld and their Russian mercenaries draw the murderous White Suits into a deadly ambush, with ex-Suit Prizrak and FBI agent Sarah Anderson as hostages. With no way out but death, who will survive the “Kill Box”?In the explosive third issue of The White Suits by Frank J. Barbiere and Toby Cypress from Dark Horse Comics the stuff hits the fan when Sarah and Prizrak are at the mercy of mercenaries and as bait for the Suits.
One of the best things that DC Entertainment has done is provide fans with the DC All Access web channel. Since it is run by DC the weekly videos offer a lot of exclusive previews and behind-the-scenes looks from comics, movies, television and toys related to the DC universe.
Saga, Hawkeye, Pretty Deadly, The Wake, Rat Queens, among the nominees
It's that time of year again and that means the Oscars of the comic book industry is upon us. The 2014 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards nominations have been announced and some familiar names appear once again. It's no surprise to see Matt Fraction, Fiona Staples, Brian K. Vaughn, Hernandez Bros., Scott Snyder, among others nominated again this year.

As you may have heard, the Fast and Furious actress Gal Gadot was cast as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.

THIS SATURDAY NIGHT, Gallery1988 will begin it's most ambitious, and secretive, project ever. We have teamed up with Sony Pictures to pay tribute to one of the greatest movies of all-time, turning 30 this year: Ghostbusters.

As previewed here before, DC Entertainment has released the Bruce Timm short Batman: Strange Days that debuted last night on the Cartoon Network.

Comixology stated that they will retain their identity as a subsidiary to Amazon. The deal is still subject to many closing conditions and won't be final until mid-year. The official press release is below:
