In Her Element: The Art of Ramona Fradon

fradon_featured

Ramona Fradon is one of the greatest comic book artists of DC's Silver Age, and indeed one of the most important comics artists of all time. She was a woman working in a male-dominated industry back in what we 21st Century folks like to call the Mad Men era. As such, she hasn't always gotten the same respect as her male peers, but her work nevertheless helped built what we now think of as the language of superhero comics.

Battle Lines Are Drawn In ‘Divinity III: Stalinverse’ Finale [Preview]

DIVINITY-III_004_FEATURED

Divinity III: Stalinverse found the Valiant Universe of 2017 suddenly under the tight control of a Soviet Union that not only never fell, it expanded across the globe. Writer Matt Kindt and artist Trevor Hairsine have built a fully fleshed-out world in which every Valiant character is affected by this alteration of reality. Now, here in the final issue of the series, it's probably time to set the timeline back to the proper one, where American leaders being under Russian control is unthinkable. Of course, there are a bunch of Soviets (some with superpowers) who want things to stay just how they are.

‘Normandy Gold’ Digs Through The Underbelly Of ’70s Washington DC [Preview]

Normandy_Gold_1_Featured

Hard Case Crime, the noir imprint from Titan Comics, has announced another title about murder and corruption in America. But this is one that sidesteps the fedoras, the tommy guns, and the masculine heroes.

Normandy Gold, written by Megan Abbott and Alison Gaylin, with art by Steve Scott, tells the story of a female sheriff who comes to Washington DC to investigate her sister's murder in the 1970s. Naturally the story gets wrapped up in the unfortunate intersection of sex work and politics.

I’m A Maniac For Flavour! ‘All-Time Comics’ Taps Into Old-Time Ad Nostalgia [Exclusive]

atcads_featured

If you grew up reading comics in the 20th century, chances are you have a strange nostalgia for ads. The printed advertisements that appear in comics developed their own language over the history of the medium, which probably peaked in the Bronze Age. Ads for candy and snacks, for merchandise based on the comic's characters, and of course for video games (once those were invented) became a part of the fabric of comics. Now that so many of us are reading digitally or in trades, that's less true.

But Fantagraphics' new superhero line, All Time Comics, is paying tribute to classic comics ads with mock ads by some of the best indie artists around.

Giant Phones And Terrible Jobs In ‘Task Force Rad Squad’ #5 By Caleb Goellner And Buster Moody [Preview]

TFRS 5 FEATURED

Writer Caleb Goellner and artist Buster Moody are back with the fifth installment of their self-published comic Task Force Rad Squad this week. If you've never read TFRS (and you should), it's a comedic take on a tokusatsu premise. I wouldn't call it a parody of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers; it's more of an off-kilter character-based story that builds from a similar premise, while taking it in absurd directions that the original never would. The Hollywood elevator pitch is that it does gives Power Rangers the Venture Bros treatment.

TMNT_featured

The Mutanimals, that teams of misfit mutants from the TMNT animated universe is getting a new three-issue miniseries from writer Caleb Goellner and artist Chad Thomas, but they're not quite feeling themselves, it seems. That's because Baxter Stockman – the TMNT world's resident evil scientist – has turned them into robots!

To mark the book's announcement, we had a quick chat with Goellner and Thomas about the Mutanimals, the differences between mutants and robots, and why Dr. Stockman would think this is a good idea.

An All-New ‘Magnus’ In An All-New World From Kyle Higgins And Jorge Fornes

Magnus_featured

Dynamite is rebooting the classic Gold Key comic, Magnus: Robot Fighter, and has released new covers from its upcoming Magnus. This new version is written by Kyle Higgins with art by Jorge Fornés, and we can recognize some key differences from the original right away. To start with, Magnus is no longer wearing a mini-dress. No big surprise there --- most reboots over the years have given him pants.

But secondly, this take on Magnus is a woman.

’70s Gotham (And ’70s Nightwing) Come To Life In ‘Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77’ [Exclusive Preview]

BM66MWW77-feat

The retro-TV adventures in DC's digital-first line just keep getting cooler, particularly in Batman '66 Meets Wonder Woman '77. If you haven't been reading the crossover series by Marc Andreyko, Jeff Parker, and David Hahn, you've been missing out on a decades-spanning-epic. The story began in the 1940s, with WWII-era Wonder Woman meeting a young Bruce Wayne. Then it continued in 1966, with Batman and Robin following Ra's al Ghul's trail to Paradise Island.

Here in Chapter Nine, available digitally March 22, the story jumps forward again, to 1977, as Wonder Woman rides her motorcycle to Gotham City in search of Batman. But this is a decade after Batman's heyday, and things have changed in the years since. Check out an exclusive preview of chapter nine.

dianaprince_featured

March is Women’s History Month, and we’re looking at the history of Wonder Woman. As we all know, her first theatrical film is due out later this year. But what if it wasn’t her first? What if there had been as many onscreen Wonder Women as Batmen?

So far we've done a Golden Age Wonder Woman movie and a Silver Age Wonder Girl movie; this week we march on into the early 1970s, for another movie featuring stars of the era.
