What a day. It’s been revealed that May will see six more DC titles cancelled, being Deathstroke, Hawkman, Team 7, Firestorm, Ravagers, and Sword of Sorcery. Some of the books have been going since the very start of The New 52 initiative…. some of them lasted for a much shorter period of time. Steve Morris http://stardarkcity.wordpress.com/
One of the most colorful ephemera of Superman lore is his stage appearance in the show “It’s a Bird…It’s a Plane…It’s Superman!” a musical with book by David Newman and Robert Benton, and music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Lee Adam (That’s the guys behind Bye Bye Bride and Applause.) The show is being revived for a seven performance run at New York City Center from March 20 through 24. Tickets can be purchased here.
A curious but interesting move today, as Marvel and Hyperion have just announced that they will be releasing a series of YA novels this year based on some of Marvel’s most prominent female heroes. So far Rogue and She-Hulk books have been announced, to the delight of Dan Slott. Steve Morris http://stardarkcity.wordpress.com/
I’ve been busy lately, sorting and boxing up well over a decade’s worth of comics. Having spent extended periods of time in 4 different towns in that stretch, it’s quite a pile to sort (10 long boxes and counting), but it’s interesting to see physical evidence of your buying patterns over the years. It’s clear […]
I’m glad the holidays are over and everyone is off their ass making back to making some comic books. Something’s in the water or there just are some great project with a lot of heart and soul. We have some bright new faces, an industry favorite and a successful project manager looking for repeated success.
Thief of Thieves is an interesting book before you even get around to reading it. This is a comic where Robert Kirkman channels his TV writer’s room experience and acts like a showrunner. The credits read Robert Kirkman – Story, Nick Spencer – Writer. The copyright reads “Robert Kirkman, LLC.” That copyright is all the more […]
Following the great success of their Avatar: The Last Airbender comics and the Avatar: The Last Airbender—The Art of the Animated Series art book, Dark Horse and Nickelodeon have come up with a no brainer: a new art book that has even MORE art from the Legend of Korra animated series.
Marvel’s solicitations for May are sneaking out, but the first thing that caught my attention – Amanda Conner providing art for Marvel, in the form of this variant cover for issue #2 of Brian Wood and Oliver Coipel‘s adjectiveless X-Men series. Whew! Long sentence. We get a look at all the team being all classy […]
News reports are circulating that the Siegel and Shuster heirs have asked the lower court to dismiss DC’s copyright lawsuits. What actually happened is rather different. Jeff Trexler
