Typically when an actor signs on to star in a Marvel film, they’re also signing on to appear in several more films — these can be sequels, or cameos and supporting roles in other MCU films. Somehow Michael Douglas didn’t have to make that deal, as the actor reveals that he hasn’t signed on for any Ant-Man sequels, though he would very much like to return to the MCU if and when possible.

Recognizing the Definitive Bat-Brilliance Of Dick Sprang!

DickSprangHeader

For a comic fan growing up in the '40s and '50s, one of the greatest conundrums was that of who wrote and drew the comics they loved – very few artists signed their work, even fewer writers were properly credited, and of those features that actually bore names, the credit often went to the feature's originator or the head of the studio, as opposed to the actual production team.

So, though he was the artist of that era who best captured the look and feel of the Dynamic Duo, Richard W. "Dick" Sprang spent his most productive years in relative anonymity. DC's arrangement with Bob Kane specified that Kane be the only name credited for Batman stories.

‘Wayward’ and the Weird Mythology of Japan

Wayward and Weird Japan

Jim Zub and Steve Cummings' Image series Wayward offers readers a fantastical tour of the imagined supernatural underworld of Tokyo, with a cast of young heroes all touched in different ways by mystical forces. It's a fantastically entertaining series that's rooted in the real mythology of Japan, thanks in part to the research of expert monster scholar Zack Davisson, who also provides back-up essays in every issue of Wayward that shed light on Japanese culture and superstitions.

Davisson has been kind enough to share with ComicsAlliance a series of slides detailing the mythological roots of Wayward's many monsters, describing where the monsters come from and showing how they've appeared in both traditional art and in the pages of Wayward. We'll let Davisson explain further, in his own words:

Greg Pak and Takeshi Miyazawa Announce ‘Kaiju Clubhouse’ as a Stretch Goal for ‘ABC Disgusting’

KC00

Greg Pak and Takeshi Miyazawa's Kickstarter campaign for ABC Disgusting has been pretty steady with providing stretch goals ever since they made their initial funding a while back, including the very tempting offer to get Pak himself to eat and drink super-gross stuff inspired by the book. Very, very tempting. Look into it.

If, however, you're not into seeing the writer of Action Comics make himself sick with a mayonnaise milkshake, there's another goal they announced today that might be a little more palatable: An illustrated chapter book about the stars of ABC Disgusting going on a hunt for giant monsters called Kaiju Clubhouse.

War Comes Home in Vaughan & Skroce’s Allegorical ‘We Stand On Guard’

westandguard-feat

Brian K. Vaughan’s newest series, We Stand On Guard with artist Steve Skroce, returns the writer to the realm of political allegory in the blunt tradition of George Orwell’s greatest novels. Here Vaughan and Skroce are addressing the 2003 Invasion of Iraq through a science fiction narrative. We Stand On Guard takes place about 100 years in the future when the United States invades Canada after the White House is bombed in a drone strike from an unknown source. The story jumps from the initial invasion to 12 years in the future when the United States occupies Canada and only small bands of freedom fighters struggle against the American troops.
