Because I was at WonderCon, I missed this past weekend’s MyCup ‘o Joe when it popped up on MySpace, but Paul Hornschemeier points out a question from a fan about Marvel’s upcoming “indie project,” for lack of a better name (and I’m sure there is one) that’ll feature stories by Hornschemeier, Jim Rugg, Stan Sakai, […]

Earlier this month Kevin posted about a Street Angel short film, based on Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca’s acclaimed mini-series from SLG. Now MTV’s Splash Page posts some new art by Rugg, created for an animated sequence in the film. The director, Lucas Testro, told MTV that the animated sequence will reveal the origin story […]

Grumpy Old Fan | DC goes cross-platform in August

August is the third month of DC Comics’ revamped lineup, which has yet to begin in earnest. Although you might think that would limit what there is to discuss in the August solicitations, I found a good bit to talk about. There are some unusual marketing moves, a few good guest-star opportunities, and even some […]

Daredevil totally should’ve been called Batman

I’d never really thought about it, but considering Daredevil’s blindness and sonar vision, it would’ve made way more sense for the Man Without Fear to be named “Batman.” Well, except for those pesky trademark issues, and the Caped Crusader’s 25-year head start. Dorkly’s Andrew Bridgman makes the case in this funny animated video that finds […]

Grumpy Old Fan | ‘Crisis’ at 30, Part 6

The sixth issue of Crisis on Infinite Earths — which debuted in comics shops 30 years ago, during the first week of May 1985 — hangs a handful of fight scenes and expository moments on an almost rudimentary plot. It finalizes the series’ basic status quo and resolves some lingering threads, but beyond that it […]

Review | A crisis of infinite Multiverse stories

I hope it was by design that DC Comics released both The Multiversity #2 and Justice League #40 on the same day the two-month Convergence event reached its halfway point. However, it’s difficult to identify a plan in the publisher devoting the bulk of its output for the final week of April to three unrelated […]

Stan Lee teams with Peter David, Colleen Doran for graphic memoir

Stan Lee is collaborating with writer Peter David and artist Colleen Doran to create his graphic memoir, billed as ” the story of how modern comics came to be.” Revealed last week by Doran, Amazing, Fantastic, Incredible: A Marvelous Memoir will be published in October as a hardcover graphic novel by Simon & Schuster.

Grumpy Old Fan | ‘Crisis’ at 30, Part 5

This month’s look back at DC Comics’ signature Big Event comes at a very appropriate juncture. The first four issues of Crisis on Infinite Earths culminated in the destruction of Earths-One and -Two, which (for the most part) represented DC’s Silver and Golden Ages. Issue 5 — which appeared in the Direct Market during the […]

We love the ’80s: ‘Jem and the Holograms’ #1 and ‘Miami Vice: Remix’ #1

As television shows go, Jem and the Holograms and Miami Vice couldn’t possibly be more different. The former, which aired from 1985 to 1988, was a children’s carton that also functioned as an extended ad campaign for an accompanying toy line, while the latter, which ran from 1984 to 1989, was an hour-long adult police […]

Comics A.M. | ‘Naruto’ spinoff miniseries to launch in April

Manga | Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto ended its weekly serialization in Shonen Jump magazine in November, but a spinoff miniseries, Naruto Gaiden: Nanadaime Hokage to Akairo no Hanatsuzuki (Naruto Spinoff: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring Month), will launch in the April 27 issue of Japanese Shonen Jump. The magazine teases, “”Urgent News: The story […]

Written once again by Jay Bonansinga, the book follows the events of last fall’s Descent, with protagonist Lilly Caul struggling with a ragtag group of survivors struggling to carve […]

Grumpy Old Fan | DC in June strives with 45

March is the final full month of the New 52, so appropriately enough it also brings the solicitations for the first full month of … well, whatever we end up calling these books. (The Fine 49? The Diverse Curse-Reversers? The Too Few For 52 Redo?) Actually, this month it’s more like the Thrivin’ 45, because […]

Jason Dussault debuts comics-inspired mosaic artwork in New York City

Next week, mosaic artist Jason Dussault will present “Deconstructive/Constructive,” his body of comics-inspired artwork, at the Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery in New York City. “Growing up in a small rural Canadian town in the late seventies and early eighties with young parents struggling to find their way, I spent much of my time alone, and the only access […]
