Ryan Quickfall And Shutterstock Devise Clever Cures For Superhero Afflictions

PurpleSmashTop

Being a superhero is tough.

I don't know that from experience, of course (if anything, I fall on the villain side of the spectrum), but I've read enough comics about superheroes trying to get some semblance of a normal life back that I can say that with certainty. Artist Ryan Quickfall clearly gets that, too. In conjunction with Shutterstock, a leading purveyor of stock images of people holding clipboards, he has made some super-cool images of pharmaceutical aids for some of the world's most popular superheroes.

New ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ Screens Confirm Punching, Batmobile Guns, Rain

ArkhamKnight1

There's a brand new demo of Batman: Arkham Knight on display at Gamescom in Germany, and from the sound of it, the game--Rocksteady Games' return to the franchise after a one-game break--will be a pretty fun time.

After a fight sequence at Ace Chemical and the introduction of some new gadgets, there's a fairly sequence involving the Batman popping out of the moving Batmobile (!) and onto rooftops. Unfortunately, you have to be at Gamescom to play that demo at the moment, but GamesRadar has nabbed a few screenshots to whet your whistle. Check them out below.

Affleck On Fan Reaction To His Batman Casting: ‘It’s Great That People Do Care That Much’

Costume01

As much as a good many vocal fans absolutely hate that he'll be playing Batman in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Ben Affleck seems like a pretty OK guy. He's even, according to a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, taking the hatred more or less in stride.

This Stop-Motion Animated ‘Usagi Yojimbo’ Short Is The First Step Toward A Feature Film

Screen Shot 2014-08-13 at 11.38.07 PM

Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai has been in the news quite a bit over the past few months as his peers, publisher and fans have raised money to help him out of a dire financial situation. Plus, it's Usagi's 30th anniversary.

So far, the efforts seem to have gone pretty well, and there seems to be more good news on the horizon: An animated, direct-to-DVD feature film starring the rabbit ronin, whose exploits are currently published by Dark Horse Comics.

Attilan On Film: Could An ‘Inhumans’ Movie Be On The Way?

Inhumans-lede

Movie rumors on the Internet are notoriously difficult to verify or confirm. (What I've started referring to as the Katee Sackhoff Incident is proof enough of that.)

So take this with the appropriate grain of salt: Collider, citing unnamed sources, is reporting that Marvel Studios is moving ahead with an Inhumans movie, with a script written by Joe Robert Cole, a writer who worked his way through the studio's in-house writing program.

‘The Walking Dead’ Video Game Season 2, Episode 4, ‘Amid The Ruins,’ Sensibly Lowers The Stakes [Review]

The-Walking-Dead-1-1280x720

I can't think of a more appropriate title for the fourth episode of Telltale Games' The Walking Dead video game's second season than "Amid the Ruins."

After an unyieldingly intense end to the previous episode, there were few places this new episode could go in terms of upping the ante. So it doesn't even try. Instead, the game's writers and developers offer a chapter about people trying to dig out from the debris left behind by a major disaster, and forging ahead with their lives.

Kirby Family Friend Claims Kirby Museum Stole Photocopied Art

KIRBY-PRSNR02_FS

Here's a pretty good sign Jack Kirby was one of the greatest comic book artists who ever lived, if not the greatest: The museum that bears his name and a historian who was also a family friend of the Kirbys are in a public spat over photocopies of his pencil work. Not the originals (many of which are more than likely lost). Photocopies.

Here's the long and short of it: Historian and illustrator Greg Theakston says he gave The Jack Kirby Museum and Research Center the 3,000-plus copies as a loan, not as a donation. He has asked for it back. The museum isn't giving it back, saying Theakston provided the art as a donation. So Theakston filed a stolen goods report with the Hoboken, N.J. police.

Astro City #14: One Superhero’s Robot Trash Is One Woman’s Robot Treasure [Preview]

Untitled-1

Since it began nearly 20 years (!) ago, writer Kurt Busiek and artist Brent Anderson's Astro City has offered up superhero tales from the perspective of the regular humans who encounter them. Clearly, it's proven to be a concept with some serious longevity. The creative team is still coming up with fresh concepts.

Take the newest issue for example. On sale now, issue #14 of the Vertigo series focuses on an elderly woman named Ellie who runs a roadside museum -- the kind one often finds on long drives out West -- full of what seem to be busted-up robot henchmen. To the superheroes who destroyed them on their way to taking down a supervillain, they were just another obstacle. To Ellie, they're showpieces, and, as the title indicates, friends.
