From the 1950s Adventures of Superman television show to this summer's Man of Steel, Superman has made several memorable appearances on both the small and big screen. And with each new TV show or film comes a change -- sometimes minor, sometimes significant -- in his iconic costume. At the DC Comics booth at this year's Comic-Con, in celebration of Superman's 75th birthday nearly all of his costumes from film and television are on display, from the suits worn by Christopher Reeve in his four Superman films to Henry Cavill's costume from Man of Steel. It's a great display, and gives visitors to the DC Comics booth a chance to see first hand the evolution of Superman's film/television look over the years.
ComicsAlliance snapped a few pictures of every costume on display, and you can check them all out below.
Marvel Entertainment closed out day three of Comic-Con with their highly anticipated 'Marvel Studios:Thor: The Dark WorldandCaptain America:The Winter Soldier.' Hosted by Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige, the panel started out with Tom Hiddleston coming out and going into his Loki character to entertain the crowd, was followed by the cast of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film joining Feige on stage as they debuted footage from the film, and closed out with Joss Whedon coming out to make Marvel's biggest announcement of this year's SDCC: the sequel to last year's phenomenally successful Avengers film will be titled Avengers: Age of Ultron, meaning the villain will be the powerful android with close ties to the Avengers who's tormented the team for decades.
Ten years ago Marvel published Origin, a comic by Paul Jenkins and Andy Kubert that revealed the previously untold tale of Wolverine's childhood. The project was the brainchild of then-Publisher Bill Jemas and then-Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada, who wanted to tell the sort of stories that Marvel had never told before.
On Friday's Cup O' Joe panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel unveiled a follow-up series that picks up where Origin left off, with "Logan" running wild with the wolves. Origin II, from writer Kieron Gillen and the other Kubert brother, Adam Kubert, sees the character go up against the X-Men villain Sinister. ComicsAlliance talked to Gillen to get the lowdown on Wolverine's second chapter.
Industry professionals new and old gathered last night for the 2013 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards at Comic-Con International in San Diego, and it proved to be a big night for Chris Ware, Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples. Ware's Building Stories took home four awards, including Best Writer/Artist and Best Publication Design, while Vaughan and Staples' Saga swept its three categories: Best Continuing Series, Best New Series and Best Writer. Among the highlights of the evening was several award recipients and presenters using their time on stage to offer a few kind words in remembrance of Kim Thompson, the legendary Fantagraphics co-publisher who passed away last month.
And while we regretfully inform you that ComicsAlliance was not among the evening's winners, we once again thank the judges for considering us.
You can see a complete list of nominees and winners below.
Today at San Diego Comic-Con, Oni Press announced its latest ongoing creator-owned book, The Auteur, which is slated to make Hollywood start feeling a burning sensation in the spring of 2014. So what's it all about? Having had the opportunity to check out an advance copy of the first issue by Rick Spears (Black Metal), artist James Callahan (Barf Comics) and colorist Luigi Anderson, I can say that at first it seemed to be about an unhinged movie producer desperate to bounce back from the biggest box office flop of all time. By the end of the issue, however, the better question seemed to be "What isn't this comic about?" For answers -- along with a first look at six intense preview pages from The Auteur #1 -- we may or may not have interrogated Spears.
The Women of Marvel panel is back at San Diego this Sunday morning in room 5AB at 11:15am. Now in its sixth year at Comic-Con (with appearances at other shows like C2E2 and New York Comic Con), the panel has become an institution, shining a light on what it's like to be a woman working in comics and offering advice to women who want to enter the industry.
This year's panel features writer and editor Louise Simonson (Power Pack, X-Factor), colorist Christina Strain (Runaways, Daughters of the Dragon), Marvel Augmented Reality manager and cosplay blogger Judy Stephens, and Marvel project manager Jenny Yeats.
The panel is once again moderated by X-Men editor Jeanine Schaefer. ComicsAlliance spoke to Schaefer to talk about her plans for this year's panel, and what she sees as the big challenges and the big changes for women working in the industry.
The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund booth is always a necessary stop at Comic-Con. Their table is covered with great comics signed by great creators, and purchases go to a very important cause. They also always boast an impressive list of exclusives and other items, and this year is no different. If you swing by the CBLDF table, you can pick up an exclusive Adventure Time cover by regular AT contributor Chrystin Garland, a print of a graphic from Super Graphic author Tim Leong detailing why certain comic books are banned in libraries, and a "Bill Gaines Was Right" t-shirt, depicting the legendary EC editor who famously defended First Amendment rights in his testimony before the Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency in 1954. You can check out all three below.
DC Comics began its week-ish slate of Comic-Con programming with an "All Access" panel which mainly spotlighted previously announced publishing plans including the recently launched Trinity War and forthcoming Forever Evil and gave readers an opportunity to get some questions answered by: VP of Sales Bob Wayne, Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, Justice League Dark/Animal Man/Green Arrow writer Jeff Lemire, The Flash co-writer and colorist Brian Buccellato, Batgirl and The Movement writer Gail Simone, Fables artist Mark Buckingham, Fairest cover artist Adam Hughes, Li'l Gotham co-writer Derek Fridolfs and Injustice: Gods Among Us writer Tom Taylor.
If you're a fan of Geof Darrow, whose intricate line and detailed backgrounds have fascinated readers as well as his fellow illustrators for years, you might know that the Hard Boiled artist has previously never produced a sketchbook. He's decided to rectify that, as the artist has announced DMFAO, a collection of various illustrations, which he'll be selling exclusively at his booth at this year's Comic-Con.
