Adorable But Sad Animals Navigate A Lonely World: Jen Lee’s ‘Vacancy’ and ‘Thunderpaw’

featured

Nobrow has released cartoonist Jen Lee's comic Vacancy, and like her currently-running animated webcomic Thunderpaw: In The Ashes of Fire Mountain, it's about animals left behind. Also like Thunderpaw, Vacancy is adorable but sad, with masterful and compelling storytelling, although it lacks some of the surreal and truly impressive moments of the former. Both are worth a read, although for different reasons.

CM Punk to Co-write New Ongoing ‘Drax’ Series

drax1-mcguinness-feat

If either of them ever come back to the squared circle any time soon, former WWE superstars CM Punk (a.k.a. Phil Brooks) and Dave Bautista may have to tussle over ownership of Drax the Destroyer.

Marvel announced at C2E2 in Punk's hometown of Chicago this weekend that he is the co-writer of a new Drax ongoing series set to debut late this year. (Bautista played the character in last summer's Guardians of the Galaxy movie.) The publisher unveiled an Ed McGuinness-drawn cover to the first issue, but hasn't yet named the artist for the series, nor Punk's co-writer.

Frank Miller Returns To Batman With ‘The Dark Knight III: The Master Race’

dk-trilogy

Nearly 30 years after the release of The Dark Knight Returns, and almost 15 after The Dark Knight Strikes Again, Frank Miller is coming back to DC comics for a third installment in his series of stories about an older Batman in a world of corruption. It will be out this fall.

Let's generously say that the title is...interesting: The Dark Knight III: The Master Race. Miller is set to co-write the eight-issue series with Brian Azzarello, who wrote a somewhat controversial Batman story of his own, "Broken City," back in 2004. According to DC's blog, an artist has yet to be named. (Which seems to mean Miller won't be drawing it.)

Greatest Best Favorite Avenger Ever: Round Two, Group III

av-group2-feat

Avengers: Age of Ultron is just a week away, so we're into the third and final day of the second round of our poll to determine the greatest, best, favorite Avenger of all time. We've taken the top contenders from the previous rounds and broken them up into new voting groups, and you're not just voting for the winner; you're helping us see how the rest of the team stack up against each other. That means you can still vote tactically if you think Captain America is going to sweep this thing but you'd still like to express a preference between Scott Land and Bobbi Morse --- and you can come back and express that preference every hour!

The round two groups were assigned blind, except that we broke up the top seeds to keep it interesting. For this last set that means a scientist showdown between Dr Banner and Dr McCoy, a face-off between beloved second-stringer little bros Havok and Hawkeye, and a titanic tussle between two major fan favorites, Captain Marvel and Spider-Man. Remember, we're not asking who'd win in a fight. Pick your favorites, and help us determine the greatest Avenger of all time!

These Color Corrected Versions of the ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Trailer Look So Much Better

moscolor

For better or worse, Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel took more than a few pages from the Christopher Nolan school of superhero filmmaking, placing Superman and his foes in a bleak, gray world. The video above asks a very interesting question: What if he didn’t? What would Man of Steel (and the upcoming Batman vs. Superman) look like if Snyder let the natural colors of Superman’s costume and his world do what colors do best?

Molly’s Back in Action! Jamal Igle Returns for ‘Molly Danger’ Book Two [Back Pages]

featmolly

Writer/artist Jamal Igle has had a busy few years in comics. Fresh off an exclusive at DC Comics where he became known as probably the defining Supergirl artist, he's joined Action Lab Comics, become a lecturer on comics issues, and --- oh yes --- created Molly Danger. The first volume of his series proved a knockout success on Kickstarter when it launched, raising over $50,000 from fans and acclaim from readers.

This year Igle is returning to Kickstarter for Book Two of the series, which is currently proposed to run for four volumes --- and things are really starting to get interesting for the young superhero. She's gained new allies, new enemies, and a whole load of new complications in her life. We spoke to Igle about his hero, and his plans for book two of the series.
