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 […]

Comics A.M. | Rare Superman comic stolen from Canadian store

A worn copy of 1939’s “Superman” #3, worth about $2,000 because of its condition, disappeared sometime last week from Happy Harbor Comics in Edmonton, Alberta.

B is for Batty: ‘Bat-Mite’ #1 and ‘Bizarro’ #1

DC Comics returns from its two-month Convergence break with a reinvigorated line, including more than 20 new series, new directions for existing titles, a new “DC You” promotional campaign, and a brief commercial message from Nick Lachey. Among the most notable changes evidenced this week is the wildly increased diversity of the publisher’s offerings. Over […]

Center for Cartoon Studies diploma is cooler than your school’s

Over the past few weeks, thousands — probably tens of thousands — of graduates of received diplomas in a broad range of studies, but it’s safe to say that none of them is as cool as the ones handed out by the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vermont. Each year the school […]

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 […]

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.

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 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.
