After decades of waiting, fans of the beloved Batman television show of the 1960s -- or Batman '66 as it is known -- will finally be able to own all 120 episodes on home video, and in high definition. After protracted litigation with series owner Fox, DC Comics' parent company Warner Bros. has set November 11 as the on-sale date for the completely remastered Batman '66, which will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, digital, and, of course, a super expensive collector's edition that comes with all sorts of groovy stuff, including a selection of photos from star Adam West's personal archives (when you're as mature and sophisticated as West, you get to have "personal archives").
Spotted by ComicsAlliance photographer Pat Loika walking away from the San Diego Convention Center this week was doubtlessly the most Deadpoolish bit of Deadpoolery we've ever seen in 3D space (today). It's not hard to imagine Usagi Tsukino and the rest of the Sailor scouts enjoying their day before Sailor Deadpool jumps into the scene and just Deadpools all over the place as they watch completely speechless and aghast.
What if Batman had a fur-lined cape? Or had Scribblenauts on his cowl? Or was Rorschach?
All those questions and more were answered at the Cape/Cowl/Create Exhibition hosted by DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Vice magazine at Comic-Con International in San Diego. The whole thing was a promotion for the new Batman: Arkham Knight game, and used the cape and cowl designs from the game as a basis for the artwork. The concept resulted in some pretty cool stuff, and the opulence of the event was a vivid expression of just how big the Arkham games have become -- often, installations like these are reserved for big tech franchise announcements.
Asgard already boasts an unlikely agent in the form of young trickster god Loki. Now it has an unlikely assassin as well, as Loki's sis from another exis(tence), Angela, gets her own solo title this November, Angela: Asgard's Assassin.
The new series by writers Kieron Gillen and Margeurite Bennett and artists Phil Jimenez and Stephanie Hans was announced at the Avengers NOW panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday -- the same panel where Al Ewing and Luke Ross's Captain America And The Mighty Avengers was unveiled.
Mighty Avengers is getting a new #1 and a new title this November. At the Avengers NOW panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, Marvel announced that the series will relaunch as Captain America & The Mighty Avengers -- with former Falcon Sam Wilson taking point as the new Captain America. That means a second title series for Wilson's Cap, and a second chance for readers to discover the book.
Al Ewing continues as writer, with former Captain America artist Luke Ross taking over as regular series artist. ComicsAlliance spoke to Ewing to find out why the book is relaunching, how he plans to handle Sam's promotion, and what it means to write the only Avengers book with a predominantly non-white team.
Among the colorful cosplay, massive booths, interactive displays and walls of merchandise at Comic-Con International in San Diego — colloquially known as SDCC — remains the most important component of the show: comic book creators. ComicsAlliance photographer and Loikiamania podcast host Pat Loika hit the show floor to catch the men and women who tell our favorite stories in sequential art and captured the enthusiasm that comes from fans getting to meet their favorite storytellers at one of the biggest conventions of the year.
LEGO, the world's greatest toy, has now officially revealed all the ways it intends to drive fans and collectors into fury, anguish, and despair at this year's San Diego Comic-Con with its range of exclusive sets and minifigures only available on the con floor.
The main draw this year will surely be the ridiculously cute Batmobile set, which comes with Batman and Robin minifigs and an innate sense of joy and delight.
Marvel's Spider-Verse panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday saw the announcement of two new mini series spinning out of the multi-dimensional event. In Scarlet Spiders, a trio of spider-clones come together for a potential suicide mission, while Spider-Verse Team Up features multiple Spider-Men from multiple Spider-Man creators.
Larime Taylor is an extraordinary talent. He has a condition, Arthrogryposis , that requires him to hold a Cintiq pen in his mouth in order to draw. Working in this way he's managed to produce seven monthly issues of his Top Cow series A Voice In The Dark, and now the first collected volume of the series is available for purchase. In order to promote the collection, Taylor has released this enjoyably bombastic trailer, complete with a Don LaFontaine soundalike.
A Voice In The Dark is the story of Zoey Aarons, a college freshman who killed once and fears she'll kill again. Unfortunately for Zoe, she's picked a college in a town with the highest population of serial killers in America.
Sam Wilson makes his first appearance as the new Captain America at the end of Rick Remender's current run on the book, Captain America #25, in October. Sam gets his own book in All-New Captain America #1 in November, by Remender and Stuart Immonen. But another story will bridge the gap between those two titles, and it will be released as a digital mini series.
