Exclusive: Zander Cannon Goes To Giant Monster Jail In ‘Kaijumax’ From Oni [NYCC]

Untitled-1

Zander Cannon's graphic novel Heck was hands-down one of the best books of 2013. It mixed an intricately detailed depiction of hell with a deep emotional resonance and an expressive, but also appealingly simply cartooning style. In some ways, it was so good that it made it hard to imagine how Cannon could follow it.

But then Oni Press announced Cannon's new, ongoing series at New York Comic-Con Thursday. It's called Kaijumax, and it's about a maximum-security prison for giant monsters. Let me repeat that so it sinks in. It's about a maximum-security prison for giant monsters. When we all expected Cannon to zig, he zagged.

New York Times Says Offensive Cartoon About India’s Space Mission Was Not Meant To Be Offensive

ydbpgu8vsccgfagz0nur

Comics can be a very powerful medium, either as a catalyst for change or as a way to--even inadvertently--uphold stereotypes.

A New York Times cartoon about India's recent, successful mission to send an orbiting spacecraft to Mars fell into the latter category, angering so many people that the newspaper had to openly apologize.

Grant Morrison & Vanesa Del Rey’s ‘Sinatoro’ Among Black Mask Titles For 2015

SinatoroCoverMain

Grant Morrison has been talking about his film passion project, a psychedelic Western called Sinatoro, since at least 2010. It was even promoted with a poster. But the writer's screenplay has ended up taking the route so many projects take on the way to becoming movies: It will be a comic first.

Morrison will work with artist Vanesa Del Rey on the series, which will come out some time next year from Black Mask Studios, the comics and transmedia company launched last year by comics artist Ben Templesmith, writer Steve Niles, Bad Religion guitarist/songwriter Brett Gurewitz and Matt Pizzolo of Occupy Comics. It's one piece of a big and not too shabby slate of new comics coming from the publisher in the next year, the highlights of which you can check out below.

James Franco Recreates Banana Boat Scene From ‘Beetlejuice’ In Batman Costumes For Some Reason

Untitled-5

Look, we all know James Franco is a weird guy. He has practically made a career out of being a weird guy. But it's still sort of astonishingly strange how the actor and director came together with a group of friends (at least, they seem to be friends) to mash up the famous dinner scene from Beetlejuice with Batman.

The video is part of Franco's "Making a Scene" series on Aol Originals, where Franco and pals spin a wheel twice, two movie titles come up, and they have to throw them together. They've all been quirky and funny, but this one is probably the oddest of the bunch.

U.S. Supreme Court Declines To Hear Shuster Family’s Superman Ownership Case

superman-action06

The Kirby family may have secured a settlement with Marvel, but the family of another high profile comic creator that petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to hear its case has not been quite so lucky. On Monday morning the Court released a list of all the cases that it declined to hear in this session, and the list includes the case of the family of Superman co-creator Joe Shuster.

The decision upholds the ruling of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which stated that Shuster's nephew, Mark Peary, had no ownership claim on the character. The Shuster estate gave up its claims to Superman in a 1992 agreement that gave the family a $600,000 payout and a $25,000 annual pension.
