THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

Back to Bayside: SAVED BY THE BELL Vol. 1 is Coming from ROAR Comics...

After a digital run last year, Lion Forge's ROAR Comics has teamed-up with IDW to issue a full-length graphic novel edition of SAVED BY THE BELL Vol. 1. Yes, it's 112 pages of action set at Bayside High School, all collected in trade paperback form, and geared toward young readers, ages 8-12. I wonder if ZACK ATTACK is back to rock the stage in this one? Check out a preview below!

Summer Reading Giveaway: Win Jim Henson's ENCHANTED SISTERS: SUMMER'S FRIENDSHIP GAMES!

As the start of summer fast-approaches, it's a prime time to "Get Caught Reading!" As such, The Jim Henson Company recently teamed-up with the Association of American Publishers (AAP) to offer a pair of new "Get Caught Reading" Posters - available FREE to educators or anyone (+ $5 s/h) - featuring the DOOZERS and ENCHANTED SISTERS.

FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2015: Little Finley's First FCBD as BATGIRL!

Today is the first Saturday in May, and if you're into the "heroic" side of life, then you probably already know what that means: FREE COMIC BOOK DAY. The annual FCBD is a celebration of the world of comic books - a way of uniting all generations of readers and supporting local small businesses all in one colorful swoop. We missed last year's FCBD due to a scheduling conflict, but after writing about our experiences in 2013 and 2012, we're back in the swing of things for 2015. While I'd intended this to be my first year taking both girls, that plan changed due to "parenting" having to step-in. 5½-year-old Addie, who was planning to be Wonder Woman today, decided to make an angry and powerful kick that landed intentionally on Batgirl (2½-year-old Finley) this morning, thus revoking her privilege to accompany us to FCBD. I think I might've been more disappointed than she was, but we don't reward a villainous turn, so Finn and I were on our way to Jay's Comics in Third Lake, Illinois...

Here's When You Can Get the First MARVEL STAR WARS Trade Paperbacks...

As readers enter just the fourth month of the new era of MARVEL STAR WARS comics, reactions have been overwhelmingly positive to the fine storytelling on display during the lead-up to J.J. Abrams's THE FORCE AWAKENS this December. While I can't speak for everyone, I'm already starting to have problems keeping up on the release schedule, with multiple titles hitting on different weeks, and daily life making those Wednesday stops at the local comic shop more easier thought of than achieved. While single issues are always cool (and variant collectors have been having a field day with the STAR WARS saga), there's always that saying - "wait for the trade" - that I think will apply to a lot of folks in the months ahead. Pre-orders have already gone live for the first trade paperbacks - collected editions - of the current MARVEL STAR WARS comics. For the ongoing series (STAR WARS, DARTH VADER) these are being presented in volumes, while limited series' (PRINCESS LEIA, KANAN) will be fully collected. Here's when to get 'em, but please note that the final cover art has not yet been released...
