Anyone following Arrow at fan conventions in the last few years will recognize one very specific question: “Will Felicity ever suit up and become a vigilante?” Well, get ready, as some new concept art from the penultimate Legends of Tomorrow episode sees “Doomworld” bringing us just that.

So far, DC's Kamandi Challenge --- a bizarre experiment in Exquisite Corpse storytelling about the Last Boy on Earth and his journey across Jack Kirby's map of a post-apocalyptic earth --- has been a hoot. The mix of high-concept action and the genuine uncertainty of having no idea where this story is going is something that you don't often get in comics, and as much as I thought it was a weird idea, it's always the first thing I read on the Wednesdays where it hits shelves.
But sadly, the third issue has dashed my hopes for Kamandi's trip to a post-apocalyptic San Diego Comic-Con. Instead, Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner, and Paul Mounts are going in a bit of a different direction. Check out a preview below!
It’s finally spring, or at least according to the calendars we’re three days into spring despite what the weather is telling us. And what do we all want to do when the seasons finally turn warm? Take a tip in the ocean, of course. That’s probably what’s on Aquaman’s mind in the new footage Warner Bros. dropped on TV this week to tease the upcoming Justice League trailer.
Alan Moore is known as one of the most famous and inventive comics writers of all time. His major works are often cited not just as the best comics, but as some of the best moments of storytelling in literature. In fact, Watchmen was one of the few comics listed on Time's 100 Best Novels in 2005.
Over the many years that he's been writing comics, Moore has produced multiple works that are rightly regarded as classics. In this list of ten essentials, I've tried to cover works that fit into the three periods of Moore's work as I see them.
In the 1990s, Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson foresaw a future of twisted behavior, renegade politics, and uncontrollable technology in Transmetropolitan. We’re revisiting the series book by book, because in a time of unrest and uncertainty we could all use some Filthy Assistance.
Lonely City shows the City finding its way into the spring, enduring as best as it can while Spider and his gang take stock and try to get back to work. Then the bottom drops out of the world as they catch a glimpse of just how bad the incoming President is going to be, while bodies start to pile up and the truth gets cut off at the knees…
Superman must always have a Lex Luthor, and so it is that Supergirl will be sticking with one of Season 2’s best additions. Season 3 of the CW drama has officially upped Katie McGrath’s Lena Luthor to series regular, ensuring our favorite Supergirl ship will live on.
As you may have already heard, DC's greatest heroes (and Aquaman) are set to hit the big screen later this year in a live-action, big-budget Justice League movie. It turns out, however, that this won't be their only trip to movie theaters this year.
This fall, the Justice League is heading to Japan to take on the evil forces of Eagle Talon in the appropriately titled DC Super Heroes vs. Eagle Talon, in which the would-be conquerors have to face their most staggering threat of all: An animation budget that gets completely drained by the arrival of some licensed superheroes. Check out the preview!
This week, Barry and Kara learn that life is a cabaret, Kara stops defying gravity, Barry has to ease on down the road, and the Music Meister lets the sunshine in. "Duet" was directed by Dermott Downs, with a story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg, and a teleplay by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing.
"Superman Reborn" has been a wild ride full of surprise returns, emotional action, and huge status-quo shifts for The Man of Tomorrow. Action Comics #976 --- the conclusion to "Superman Reborn" --- is in stores today, and ComicsAlliance had the chance to talk exclusively to Dan Jurgens and Peter J. Tomasi about what its events mean for Superman, his roster of supporting characters, and the ongoing mystery of DC Rebirth.
This week's "Fellowship of the Spear" heads into the trenches of World War I, and also basically to Middle-Earth, as beloved Hobbit guy J.R.R. Tolkien helps the team find some mystical artifacts while the Legion of Doom nips at their heels. The episode was directed by Ben Bray and was written by Keto Shimizu and Matthew Maala.
