Well now. If you were wondering how closely the new movie Star Wars universe and the Marvel Comics Star Wars universe would work together, considering that both are now owned by Disney, the answer is “Yes.” You may have noticed that C-3PO was sporting a new red arm in the Force Awakens trailers, and assumed that he’d lose a limb during the film. However, the origin of Threepio’s new appendage will be told in STAR WARS SPECIAL: C-3PO #1, a one-shot out this December right around the movie’s release. And it’s by the team of writer James Robinson and Tony Harris, the Starman team reuniting for the first time in nearly 20 years.

And as also expected, he knows that he fucked up. It will certainly be interesting to see how this affects reprint volumes of AIRBOY. When Batgirl has a similar controversy, the trade […]

When creators James Robinson and Greg Hinkle showed me a copy of the first issue of Airboy back at NYCC last year, my jaw dropped. A fourth-wall breaking 8 1/2 storyline about two creators bringing back a Golden Age hero while engaging in all sorts of drug taking, alcohol abusing and balls-out (and shown) sexual […]

Review: Nothing And Everything Left To The Imagination In James Robinson And Greg Hinkle’s “AIRBOY”

“James Robbins” himself, being assigned the Airboy comic for a reboot

by Nick Eskey For starters, this work is not for kids, and there might be a plot spoiler. With that out of the way, let’s review! Airboy was originally made during the boom of super hero comics in the World War II era, where America dreamed of spandex clad heroes fighting not only super villains, […]

Airboy by James Robinson and Greg Hinkle is going to blow your mind

At the last NYCC, I got shown a few pages of the new Airboy series by James Robinson (Starman, FF) and relative newcomer Greg Hinkle. As I turned each page, my jaw dropped more and more and more. This is a roman á clef, a reboot, an autobio (?) comic, wish fulfillment…whatever, it’s crazy. Metafictional. […]
