BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
Valiant Entertainment has provided ROBOT 6 with an extended first look at the colored pages for Jeff Lemire and Mico Suayan’s Bloodshot Reborn #1, debuting in April.
“Without getting into specifics, at the end of The Valiant, something very dramatic happens to Bloodshot,” Lemire told CBR in October. “It completely and utterly alters his life, and everything we know and everything we’ve ever seen of Bloodshot is really turned inside out. We pick up a few months after the events of The Valiant and Bloodshot is withdrawn from society. He’s living as a drifter trying to make some sense of what’s happening, what he is and what he was and what he can still be. That’s where we pick up — it’s a character that’s really been taken down to the bone, and then I’m going to take him down even further.”
Check out Suayan’s pages colored by David Baron — some of which have never been seen before — below.
Writer Jen Van Meter remains a creator who I continually expect, hope, what have you will gain the mainstream recognition and success that she has deserved as far back as 2002’s Hopeless Savages. So it is a great deal of resentment mixed with bewilderment when I pose the question: “In a market hungry for more well-written characters and stories from a great writer who just happens to be female, why the hell are people not raving about Doctor Mirage from every Internet social media forum?”
To help promote tonight’s episode of Arrow, The CW has returned to the series’ roots, with a one-page comic teasing the search for the latest threat to Starling City, Cupid.
Debuting in the closing moments of last week’s episode, where she immediately proved her deadliness, Cupid (aka Carrie Cutter) was introduced in 2009 in DC Comics’ Green Arrow/Black Canary #15, by Andrew Kreisberg and David Baron. Kreisberg of course went on to co-create Arrow and its spinoff The Flash (although he didn’t write tonight’s episode, “Draw Back Your Bow’).
Battlepug creator Mike Norton knows his dogs — pugs in particular. And with credits that include Trinity, Green Arrow/Black Canary and Young Justice, he clearly knows a thing about DC Comics superheroes, too. Combine the two, and the result is downright adorable.
Look no further than his website, where the Revival artist has debuted a trio of prints, colored by David Baron, that he’ll have for sale at his September convention appearances: “Fastest Pug Alive,” “King of the Sea” and “The Leash of Truth.”
