Early last month, we learned that Netflix had begun development of a new Voltron series under its renewed agreement with DreamWorks, and before any major details have emerged, we already have our first look at the new Legendary Defender series, accompanied by an official logo and glimpse of the new Voltron.
Since its relaunch last year with a new direction and a rebooted continuity, Archie has boasted a pretty incredible roster of talented artists tasked with bringing Riverdale's favorite teenager to life. Now, after debuting on the title in its latest issue, Veronica Fish has been named the regular ongoing artist of Archie Comics' flagship title.
Fish will be joining writer Mark Waid, following Fiona Staples, who drew the initial three-issue arc, and Annie Wu, who filled in with #4's "Lipstick Incident."
Arrow fans have noticed more steadily that any and all Suicide Squad characters shared with the upcoming film have been “taken off the table” through various means, seemingly for good. Manu Bennett’s Deathstroke still draws breath, but may now be “tied up in another DC project” and equally unable to return, according to producer Marc Guggenheim.
Ask a generation of cartoon watchers what their prototypical Batman or Superman would look like, and there's a pretty good chance the image that will pop into the heads of many will look a whole lot like a Bruce Timm drawing. Same goes for Wonder Woman, Hawkgirl, Harley Quinn, The Flash, Martian Manhunter, Robin, Batgirl, Lois Lane and dozens of other DC characters.
Timm, born on this day in 1961, has made his career in animation, co-creating Batman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, Superman: The Animated Series and Justice League, among other shows, but he has arguably had as much of an impact on superheroes as any living comic artist.
There’s no secret that The Flash will finally introduce us to Killer Frost with this coming Tuesday’s “Welcome to Earth-2,” but however much time we get to spend with an alternate-reality version of Caitlin Snow, The CW will make it memorable. Check out some chilly new Killer Frost art from the Tuesday premiere, along with brand-new photos from “Welcome to Earth-2.”
It's no secret that white male leads have dominated comic books since --- well forever. In the '60s, Marvel and DC finally started to put a change to that with the addition of super-powered people of color, which led to some of today's biggest names in comics. But it still wasn't enough. Eventually the lack of diversity led to the onset of Milestone Media in the '90s, where Dwayne McDuffie, Denys Cowan, Michael Davis, and Derek T. Dingle crafted several intriguing characters. With an increasingly active black nerd, or blerd, community, new black characters are being created every day --- primarily through independent publishers, though Marvel has also kickstarted a focus on one of its most notable black characters --- but more on that later.
To celebrate Black History Month, ComicsAlliance is running down our list of 20 Great Black Comic Book Characters. Our list considers old staples as well as some new favorites, including a certain katana wielding badass, space explorers and of course, plenty of superheroes.
The Walking Dead will return in under a week’s time, picking up with one of the biggest cliffhangers in the series’ history, and answering the question of whether or not Alexandria is here to stay. That said, Andrew Lincoln teases a huge change for the back half of Season 6, while a new leaked photo may confirm some deadly consequences ahead.
With the Deadpool movie arriving in cinemas this week, media attention has turned to the character's co-creator Rob Liefeld, and it’s already caused a fair share of controversy. As part of an interview with the New York Times, Liefeld stated that he did “all the heavy lifting” in the creation of Deadpool, and even more bluntly, “I chose Fabian [Nicieza], and he got the benefit of the Rob Liefeld lottery ticket. Those are good coattails to ride.” Liefeld has called the article a "hit piece," but has made similar assertions on Twitter.
Liefeld’s words raise interesting questions about who gets to call themself the true creator of a character. Is it just the initial concept, idea, or design that warrants a creator credit, and does time spent defining a character count for anything?
FOX’s Gotham has been on a cold snap of teasing its latest early Batman arrival, but another, equally sinister villain will make an ominous debut in the DC drama’s February 29 return. Meet Jurassic World star B.D. Wong’s take on Hugo Strange, in a new photo of the major Bat-Baddie’s debut!
