Oni Press Unveils Carey Pietsch Variant Cover for ‘Space Battle Lunchtime’ #1

lunchtime_featured

Space Battle Lunchtime is about a reality cooking show, which is already getting me excited. From Master Chef to Chopped to the Great British Bake-Off, I'm a big fan of the genre (although not Top Chef—too heavy on reality show drama, if you ask me), and I'm also into comics that are about things I like that nobody's made a comic about before.

But as the name implies, Space Battle Lunchtime isn't about just any reality cooking show, it's about one that happens in Outer Space! Even more exciting! SBL tells the story of Peony, a baker from Earth who gets a last-minute chance to compete in the universe's most popular cooking show, but might not be ready for the treacherous world of space-cooking.

DC Collectibles is Spoiling Us With Even More Animated Figures For the Next Year

DC Collectibles
DC Collectibles

Though the past few months have been filled with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad collectible news, DC Collectibles hasn't forgotten about one the greatest toy lines it ever developed. Though it's not been without its issues here and there, the Batman: The Animated Series figure line from DC Collectibles has been a hit for both the company and fans. Though most of this year's releases are already on schedule, DC's seen fit to tease a bit of what's to come in late 2016 and early 2017 ahead of Toy Fair.

The reveal comes courtesy of USA Today, where DC Collectibles dished on some brilliant new additions to the expanding line, which will now also include Batman Beyond in the mix alongside B:TAS and The New Batman Adventures. Both Terry and Bruce, along with Ace, will make up the Batman Beyond box set ($50) in January 2017. While that's a long time to wait, it is perfectly timed with a certain writer's birthday, so I tip my hat to DC Collectibles for thinking of me so far in advance.

How Invading a Spider-Man Comic Cemented Deadpool’s Character

deadpool-spidey-feat

Over the past couple of decades, a narrative has built up around Deadpool's character evolution: He started out like any other mercenary, sword-carrying '90s badass, and it wasn't until the debut of his Joe Kelly-written and largely Ed McGuinness-drawn solo series in 1997 that the character came into his own.

I'd argue that it's not quite that cut-and-dry. Go back and read Deadpool's early X-Force appearances and you'll discover he was still a wisecracker, though a bit more mean-spirited. Where Deadpool really seemed to come into his own, though, was almost a year into his solo series, in an issue that would long be hailed as the best single-issue Deadpool story: Deadpool #11, written by Kelly, with art by Pete Woods.

starfirecover-feat

When it debuted in June of last year, Starfire brought alien princess Koriand'r to the Florida Keys with a bright new attitude and a great new costume. Written by the Harley Quinn team of Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, the book includes beautiful lineart from Emanuela Lupacchino and Ray McCarthy, with Elsa Charretier taking over lineart this week in Starfire #9, plus vibrant color work from Hi-Fi. All this comes together to tell the tale of a sunny-dispositioned superheroine making a life for herself in the strange land of Florida.

But in the last month or so, rumors of changes coming to the DC line has readers questioning what would happen to Starfire. We got together with Conner and Palmiotti to discuss female friendship, Kori's views on love and sexuality, and the fate of the book in the coming months.

This is perhaps one of the greatest unanswered questions of the modern, grittier era of Batman. And judging by this new photo from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the answer appears to be: nope.
