Bristling with hubris, superiority and snark, Namor the Sub-Mariner is not only one of Marvel's most heavy-hitting titans, but also one of its first. He was one of the original supermen; the first superhero to fly; and one of the first comic book anti-heroes, waging war on the human world even from his earliest appearances.
To celebrate the different sides of the character across more than 75 years of comic book history, and perhaps to help quench your thirst for much more Namor, we've compiled a gallery of some of our favorite Sub-Mariner art.
Born on August 30th, 1943, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Robert Crumb is one of the most influential and divisive comics artists of all time, with as many followers as detractors. So which Crumb is the real one? The artistic genius or the pervert?
It wasn't that long ago that Jake Wyatt started Necropolis, a new fantasy webcomic that quickly became one of my favorite things to read. In the strips published so far, Wyatt shows off an incredibly engaging fairy tale style that blends the sinister bargains of its main character with some of the most beautiful pages of the year.
Unfortunately, the comic hit a delay in updates thanks to a cross-country move, but rather than leaving his readers waiting for the next few pages without anything to tide them over, Wyatt has taken the opportunity to share some of his design process --- including full short stories that he made to test out the Third Sword's look.
Ever since Sony and Marvel finally reached an agreement to combine forces for the future good of Spider-Man (thus allowing the web-slinger to crossover into the MCU), the studios have been at the receiving end of a lot of questions from fans. But they’re not the only ones — now that he’s no longer playing Spider-Man, everyone wants to know what Andrew Garfield thinks about all of this. Not only is he thrilled, but as it turns out, he was a big advocate for a Marvel crossover.
Captain America: Civil War isn’t the only major superhero film that wrapped principal production this week — Bryan Singer completed his primary work on X-Men: Apocalypse, and David Ayer also finished the principal work on Suicide Squad. To celebrate, Ayer grabbed (almost) the entire cast along with much of the crew for one big photo.
The Atlas Comics monster stories of the late 1950s cemented Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's working relationship, and laid the groundwork for the revolution they would launch with Fantastic Four #1 in 1961. In honor of Jack Kirby's birthday, we've compiled this gallery of some of his finest Atlas-era covers!
Gotham hasn’t proven particularly shy with the lion’s share of Season 2 footage and teasers, but at least a few faces have been missing from its city streets. No longer, as the full character gallery for Gotham Season 2 brings Two-Face, Lucius Fox and more back into the fold, along with some new menace for our future Batman.
I'd like to think that I'm pretty polite most of the time, but I'll admit that I have no idea what's expected of me in extremely formal situations. I mean, it was only a few weeks ago that I learned that there's actually a huge (and sometimes insulting) difference between addressing someone as "your highness" and "your majesty," so in the unlikely event that I ever actually meet a king or queen, I'm going to be at a loss.
I do, however, know one thing about meeting royalty: You don't spit on them. Especially if the royalty in question is a barbarian king from the fifth century. Especially if it's Aric of Dacia, a barbarian king from the fifth century who is also wearing a suit of high-tech armor that recently allowed him to defeat an entire alien army pretty much singlehandedly. That's... that's not going to work out well, and it's a hot tip that you could probably share with the cast of X-O Manowar #40, by Robert Venditti and Rafa Sandoval. Check out a preview!
As Fear The Walking Dead explores a different angle of the zombie apocalypse well-removed from Rick Grimes and Alexandria, crossover rumors have repeatedly flown back and forth. That flight has just become literal, as Season 6 will host a series of Walking Dead shorts set on an airplane, introducing a new character for Fear The Walking Dead Season 2. Confused yet?
By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes, and it's a very welcome kind of wickedness. The first issue of Boom Studios' witchy new series Toil And Trouble by writer Mairghread Scott and artists Kelly and Nichole Matthews arrives in stores next week, telling the tale of Shakespeare's Macbeth from the point of view of some of the most famous characters in fiction to never get names; the witches. Boom has provided us with an exclusive preview, so if your thumbs have been pricking strangely, now you know why.
