David F. Walker Returns To ‘Shaft’ With New Novel And Miniseries In 2016

Shaft's Revenge, Dynamite Entertainment

David F. Walker and Bilquis Evely's Shaft: A Complicated Man was one of the best comics of the past couple of years. Focused on the first case for the legendary private eye, it was the origin story that I never knew I wanted, an engaging and very, very personal revenge case that set the stage for the character in a brutal and highly entertaining way and left me wanting to read a whole lot more.

Fortunately, that's exactly what we're going to get. Today, Dynamite announced that Walker would not only return to Shaft with Imitation of Life, a new comic with artist Dietrich Smith, he'll also be writing Shaft's Revenge, the first new prose novel about the character in over forty years.

Mike W. Barr On ‘Suicide Squad Most Wanted: Katana And Deadshot’ [Interview]


As you've probably already heard, there's a Suicide Squad movie on the way, and that means that the spotlight is once again falling onto some of DC's most ruthless villains-turned-government operatives. But in addition to longtime Squad mainstays like Deadshot and Harley Quinn, one other character is getting ready for a turn on the big screen: Katana, the modern samurai created by Mike W. Barr and Jim Aparo for Batman and the Outsiders.

To that end, DC has announced Suicide Squad Most Wanted: Katana and Deadshot, a double-sized six-issue miniseries featuring two stories, including a new adventure with Katana and the Squad taking on Kobra by Barr and artist Diogenes Neves. To find out more, I spoke to Barr about creating Katana, returning to the character after so long, and how he thinks she's going to fit in with her new team.

Celebrate the Adventures of Your Favorite Time Lord Renegade With New Lego Doctor Who Set


Where once there were no Doctor Who Lego sets, soon there will be multiple ways to enjoy the Time Lord in brick form. This November will see the Doctor arrive in Lego Dimensions, complete with mini-TARDIS and K-9, but that's still not a complete adventure set and is meant for use with the Lego Dimensions game itself. It's a good thing then that in December, Lego will release a more complete Doctor Who set based on the design submitted through the Lego Ideas program.

Originally pitched by AndrewClark2 to Lego Ideas back in February 2014, the Doctor Who and Companions set saw a few changes made from its earliest incarnation. The user-created idea was based around the David Tennant's Tenth Doctor, and featured his frequent companion Rose, along with an additional Fourth Doctor. That original pitch did have designs in place for the Twelfth Doctor and Clara, too, but was primarily a Tenth Doctor set.
