Dark Horse announced at NYCC this weekend that it's publishing the first print edition of Anne Szabla's webcomic Bird Boy, the beautifully illustrated tale of a young boy traversing a mythic land of gods and monsters in an attempt to prove himself to his tribe.
We sat down with Szabla to talk about the announcement, what it means for the future of her webcomic, and what readers new and old can look forward to in the print version.
As readers will know from our weekly Best Cosplay Ever feature, we’re big fans of cosplay at ComicsAlliance. The comics, sci-fi, gaming, and fantasy communities have proved time and again their exceptional talents for homemade disguises and superheroic sartorial excellence, and all of their craft and skill will be on display this weekend at New York Comic-Con. Our chief cosplay correspondent Betty Felon is on hand to document as much of it as she can. Scroll down for some of the very finest cosplay from New York.
As much as I'm looking forward to seeing it on the big screen, I'll admit that I've been more than a little apprehensive about the upcoming Power Rangers movie. A lot of that has just been me being a grumpy fan who fears change, but without a whole lot of details on what to expect, the mind starts wandering to the horrifying possibility of a gritty reboot.
Now, though, we've finally gotten some details, and as someone who spends a whole lot of time thinking about the Power Rangers, I have to confess that it sounds pretty awesome. According to an article at Collider, the new movie might not be as much of a reboot as we thought, but rather a big-screen continuation of the franchise set after the events of the current series, Power Rangers Dino Charge. And what's more, it's going to involve the return of a pretty unexpected villain. If you don't mind spoilers, read on!
Our first New York Comic-Con without The Legend of Korra stings as much as this past summer, but the current Avatar isn’t out for the count just yet. In addition to the forthcoming Blu-ray release, we also have our first look at artwork from the upcoming Dark Horse comic continuation of the beloved Nickelodeon series.
Here’s your daily rumor to take with a heaping teaspoon of salt: a new report suggests that Marvel Studios may have canceled The Inhumans, the final film in their Phase 3 plan following Avengers: Infinity War Part 2. It’s not entirely implausible, but what makes this rumor a little difficult to swallow is the idea that Marvel Studios has shelved plans for the project due to ongoing conflicts with Marvel’s TV division.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice doesn’t hit theaters until next March (if you can believe it), but we’ve already been inundated with so much marketing, including teasers, trailers, featurettes, photos, et al. Compare that to Disney’s approach with marketing Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and it seems like a lot — and here’s one more! But this latest feature is pretty interesting, as it gives us a closer look at the new costumes for Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.
Peggy won’t make her trip to Hollywood until sometime in early 2016, but with the cast and crew assembling for New York Comic-Con, the SSR has leaked plenty new details on Agent Carter’s next mission. Not only do we know our Madam Masque, but also a host of new faces, and which friends and foes will return for Season 2.
Marvel’s animated Guardians of the Galaxy have given us a chance to catch up with the adventures of Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot before its cinematic inspiration arrives for Volume 2 in 2017, and the TV branch will reach another milestone before the film. Disney XD’s Guardians will return for a second season, and crossover with The Avengers as well.
The weekend is here! Put down your paperwork, throw your stationery out of the window, and do a victory spin in your office chair --- it's time to catch up on that greatest of all mediums: comics! What's been going on this week? NYCC has fallen upon us all like a giant comfy pillow filled with news, so Weekender is here to catch you up on some of the stories you may have missed, and some of the best writing about comics from the past few days.
When IDW's Ghostbusters ongoing series ended, it seemed like it was only a matter of time before the series picked back up in some form, and when Ghostbusters: Get Real launched a few months back as a crossover between the IDW continuity and the Real Ghostbusters animated series, there were a whole lot of hints that it wouldn't be the final act. Today at New York Comic Con, IDW has announced the next form the series will take, and it looks like the Ghostbusters are going worldwide.
When Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening return to the series in 2016, it'll be for Ghostbusters International, a new adventure that finds the team traveling to battle ghosts in other countries under a contract with the UN.
