[Above: Anthrax – “Fight ‘Em ‘Til You Can’t” from Worship Music]

On September 13, Anthrax will return with a new studio album Worship Music, the band’s first release of new material in 8 years. While it may seem like the band has been away for a few years, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Constant touring as well as some mega shows where Anthrax co-headlined along with Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer, means the band has been busy and have never stopped playing music. The new album however welcomes back original vocalist Joey Belladonna, who makes his first appearance on an Anthrax studio album since the 1990 album Persistence of Time.

I caught up with the man most responsible for Anthrax over all these years, Scott Ian, for a phone to preview the new record and to talk about everything that led into its creation.

Recent discoveries by scientists studying meteorites may very well prove everyone on Earth evolved from alien life forms.

Several scientists studying meteorite fragments have discovered they contain the building blocks of DNA, strengthening previous theories that life on Earth may have been spawned from materials landing here from space. According to findings by scientists, meteorites that have landed on Earth contain all the necessary elements to create DNA.

Most people know Tom Morello as the guitarist from Rage Against the Machine or Audioslave, but now the Harvard graduate is moving into writing, specifically a new comic book called Orchid.

The book, which is written by Morello and features art from Shepard Fairey and Scott Hepburn, will be released by Dark Horse later this year

Influenced by the ladies featured on SuicideGirls.com, Morello’s title character is a strong female lead in a future world where the rich and powerful rule with an iron fist and the powerless are left with the scraps.

Morello, usually known for guitar innovations, has also added a new riff to his comic book set. With each issue, he will release a new track that fans will be able to download that will serve as the soundtrack to the story.

The book was unveiled last weekend at San Diego Comic Con where Morello sat down with SuicideGirls.com to give an insight into his passion for comics and what to expect when Orchid debuts.

The ball has dropped and the calendar has flipped, and now that we are entering 2011, comic book fans are looking forward to the biggest books and events for this upcoming year. The landscape over the next few months will most likely be shaped by DC Comics juggernaut series Green Lantern, which will feature expansions into a new series, with one mega event wrapping up while another begins, and of course the summer release of the new Green Lantern movie.

The Green Lantern was often thought of by comic book fans as a second tier character to the bigger named heroes like Batman and Superman, but over the last few years current DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns has turned the book into the most popular series for the comic giant.

It all started with 1994’s independent smash hit Clerks and just a few short years later Kevin Smith was well on his way to being the Quentin Tarantino of pop culture nerd films. Now as 2010 closes, Smith may very well be embarking on his final films before moving on to concentrate on other projects including his vast podcasting and public speaking empire.

With the end of 2010 rapidly approaching it’s time to take stock of the year in the comic book world. From epic events like Blackest Night/Brightest Day, to indie comics that everyone raved about, to the superheroes that died and were born again, a lot of action went down over the last 12 months.

Here are a handful of selections that sum up what I believe are the best comics of 2010 along with a few honorable mentions that I hope everyone gets a chance to check out!
