Billy Graham wasn’t just the first black artist at Marvel. He was the only black artist at Marvel in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. And he just happened to have worked on both Luke Cage, Hero for Hire and on Don McGregor’s seminal run on Jungle Action featuring Black Panther. The New York Times has a great write-up…
DC Comics released Tom King and Clay Mann’s five page story for Action Comics #1000, “Of Tomorrow,” fully on their website. Please read it. It is incredibly beautiful and heartfelt and now I want an entire Superman book just done by Tom King and Clay Mann. This is the Superman I want to read all the time.
The Unbelievable Gwenpool was an odd book when it was first announced and it continued to be an odd book when it came out. The initial inspiration for the book was a variant cover for Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #2, which depicted a female Deadpool wearing a hot pink and white costume lounging in a pool.
Over on io9 in today’s Morning Spoilers there is an item quoting Duncan Jones, the director of Moon, Source Code, and Warcraft about the possibility of making a superhero movie. The Bowie boy blazes his Beckenham roots by declaring that he would be interested in filming some characters from 2000AD. Not Judge Dredd,…
HELP! I need to tap into the wider hive mind if it is still there.
A house in the Hebrides has an infestation of mice, but they seem rather grateful according to The Sunday Post and other papers. Around 200 vintage copies of Mickey Mouse Weekly have been found at the home of renowned Gaelic scholar Dr John Lorne Campbell on the island of Canna.
Today, DC streamed live a panel called “The Aftermath: Battle & Trauma in Comics,” where Tom King (Batman, Mister Miracle, The Vision) talked with other people about trauma and PTSD and then announced that he would be writing a book for DC called Sanctuary, which would be about a superhero trauma crisis center.
Last year was Jack Kirby’s 100th birthday and we still don’t have the awesome biopic for him that we deserve. So I figured I could make one up — and instead of a simple biopic, it would be a biographical mini-series, going through different eras in Jack’s life.
The Eisner award winning Scottish artist who drew Skizz passed away on December 29, aged 77. If you haven’t read Alan Moore’s mash-up of Boys from the Blackstuff and ET, go and find a copy. The Birmingham based tale of an alien stranded on Earth is a special comic.
Doomsday Clock is a 2017-2018 comic book mini-series that will act not only as the culmination of the story arc introduced in DC Rebirth #1, but also as the sequel to the seminal classic Watchmen, written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons in 1986. Doomsday Clock is written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by…
My favorite OGNs and TPBs that came out in 2017. Capsule reviews, art samples, good gifts, good grief.
Christopher Priest is returning to write Black Panther...for one story only. In Black Panther Annual #1, famous Black Panther writers Don McGregor, Christopher Priest, and Reginald Hudlin return to write three new stories about T’Challa, Wakanda, and...Everett K. Ross.
Just in time for Christmas... All jokes aside, this one looks intriguing. Judas is a interesting interpretation of one of the most - if not the most - reviled individuals in the Bible. From an interview with the creator/writer of the mini-series, Jeff Loveless:
I stopped reading the main DC Wonder Woman book after Greg Rucka finished his run, but there is a Wonder Woman book that I am currently reading: Wonder Woman/Conan by Gail Simone and Aaron Lopresti. It is fantastic in all meanings of the word.
I’m buying just one today. Scales & Scoundrels is a very light-hearted story. Far from all the dark shit I tend to read. This is issue 4. I guess it’s time for another story of my time as a comic book clerk.
This one looks like my cat Bruja. And the story is not too shaby. I’m also looking forward to Sword of Ages cuz it’s written and drawn by none other than Locke & Key’s Sir Gabriel Rodriguez, thank you very much. I’m really interested to see his skill at doing both.
My curiosity is definitely peaked by Imaginery Fiends. Part of its premise is based on the real life true crime story about two girls who attempted to savagely kill a friend in order to appease the Slender Man. The incident brought to the light an aspect of the life of pre-teens and what goes on in that secret world. …
I went into Justice League not really expecting much. All I really needed to enjoy the film was for it to deliver some great action scenes and some good character interactions. And boy, did it deliver that and a little bit more.
Just one whole comic this week. So, I have another story from my many adventures as a comic book store clerk to share with you all.
So Brian Michael Bendis is leaving Marvel for DC. This is pretty shocking news in itself, considering Bendis has been with Marvel for close to seventeen years now and has written almost all of their major characters and even created some new characters that have become very popular. So while we might speculate what…
