It's a very special Morning 'Toons, because it's only the third one. And because one of our staff here at 8CN recently got a year older! And I just so happened to find a birthday-themed cartoon, so let us surrender to Internet Fate and deliver this resounding: Happy Birtday.
This year's Comic-Con might be over, but don't let that stop you from taking a second look at all of the awesome cosplay that was at the event. Check out 50 of our favorites below, and start planning next year's trip!
In a bold yet understandable move, Comixology announced today at Comic Con that they will be offering users the option of DRM-free backups to purchased comics, thus enabling readers to share, modify, and actually own their purchases in every sense of the word. Of course the DRM-free option is still a decision made by the publishers themselves, it's still a step in the right direction towards regaining what supporters they've lost earlier this year.
Just in time to get jaws wagging at Comic-Con, one of comic’s great writers has announced a collaboration with Walking Dead executive producer, Gale Anne Hurd, on an as yet unnamed television project. The deal was announced along with two other projects under Univeral Cable Productions. It will be Warren Ellis' first stab at a television property, and he seems quite excited about it.
ICYMI, digital comics are a thing, they grossed an insane $90 million in sales last year, and Marvel's latest promotion looks like an even greater push in the digital direction: you can get access to their staggering back catalogue of comics for a mere 99 cents.

It's not called Comic-Con for nothing, and DC Entertainment is planning a huge list of events for the convention this week. Included on their schedule are panels for Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman, a preview of the "Multiversity" event by Grant Morrison, early looks at Vertigo books, and more.

With Thor turning into a woman, and Batgirl getting a pretty great new costume, it seems that comic companies are trying to make their characters more culturally meaningful. Sometimes this is a happy accident, sometimes it’s a blatant marketing ploy. With that in mind, here are 10 characters that Marvel and DC tried to push into being a thing.
George R.R. Martin likes to take his time with his books, but unfourtunately, that means that HBO's Game of Thrones is catching up to the published material at an alarming rate. Barring some kind of miraculous surprise on Martin's part, the TV show will run out of material to adapt in just a few short seasons. If (when) we hit that point, fans are split on whether or not HBO will take a break, or continue on without a book to guide them. We now finally have an official answer.
Marvel has been trying to keep a tight lid on Avengers: Age of Ultron rumors since the sequel was announced, but in the past week, they've shifted into full-on reveal mode. In addition to giving us a first look at Ultron, we also now know where he came from, and how his origin ties into a new character: the Vision.
Welcome to The Pull List, a weekly column where I check out the first issue of a new comic and tell you whether or not you should start following that comic based only on that. This week I'm taking a look at the dark, bizarre, and occult world of Ben Templesmith's The Squidder. What the hell is a "squidder," you ask? I have no idea. Let's find out, together.
Someone new is taking on the mantle of the red, white, and blue hero, and he's finally going to be black. Captain America, now 90-years old in the Marvel Comics universe, is retiring, passing the torch on to his longtime friend and ally, the Falcon.
Marvel Studios is usually pretty secretive about their movies (not surprising considering there are around 14 billion blogs out there trying leak as many details as they can), but they certainly aren't playing coy about The Avengers' next nemesis. Gracing the cover of Entertainment Weekly is none other than Ultron himself, and he's got a slick new character makeover.
