Dick Grayson has done it all. He was in the circus. He was the first Robin. He’s the reason almost every superhero had to have a kid sidekick. He started his own super-team with his friends. He broke away from Batman and became his own hero, and took over for his mentor and became Batman.More than once. He’s been a good cop in a bad city. He’s died and come back as a super-spy. And now, with DC Rebirth in full swing, he’s set to slip back into the black and blue and become Nightwing once again!
Oh, and if you haven’t been on the internet, he also has the unquestioned, best butt in comics. So, yeah, as you might have guessed there’s a lot of fan art of him floating (or flipping, spinning, and swinging) around out there on the internet.
Introduced in 1968, there a few women in comics with such a storied history of strength and determinaton as Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel. Carol is a character who works hard at building the brightest possible tomorrow and the best version of herself. It's precisely that kind of attitude that inspired Kamala Khan, the young hero from Jersey City, to adopt the Ms. Marvel codename when she came into powers of her own.
No matter whether they’re taking on the mantle of Ms. Marvel or Captain Marvel, these cosplayers bring the best of the hero to the surface on the convention floor. These are the best Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel cosplays.
The X-Men could claim to be the best comic ensemble group of all time. Created by writer and titan Stan Lee and artist and visionary Jack Kirby in 1963, the misfit team has offered some charged commentary about race, class, and otherness, and has most other teams beat when it comes to women, persons of color, and characters on the LGBTQ spectrum --- though it also has room to grow, of course.
There are of fan favorites and memorable characters in both the cinematic and comic lineup, so when it comes to X-Men apparel and collectibles, the options are vast; there's a fandom for every almost every individual X-Men member. Whichever character is your mutant of choice, you're bound to find some gems in out latest Hero Mode collection.
For all of the time that Catwoman has been around, there have been numerous and varied iterations, providing a wealth of options to cosplayers. It’s always a delight to see a Catwoman at a convention, whether she’s in the old-school cape and suit, the various versions from Batman '66, the patched latex donned by Michelle Pfeiffer in the Batman Returns film, the body suit and cowl of the ‘90s animated series, or even the sleek and sophisticated look of the newer outfits based on Darwyn Cooke's fan-favorite redesign. In all forms, these cosplayers embody DC’s finest thief and famous femme fatale.
Kate Kane was the character the Bat-Family needed. An adult woman who takes inspiration from Batman without being his protégé. In other words, his equal, although she still respects him as the guy who was doing it first, and the clear leader of the Bat-franchise. Her military background gives her training in combat and strategy that makes her an asset to the group, as well as a formidable hero on her own.
So with this being Pride Week, it's all the more appropriate that we celebrate Kate Kane with a gallery of fan art. It features many gorgeous depictions of her in the iconic Batwoman costume, but also some of her stylish civilian looks, and her baseball-oriented Bombshells incarnation.
With such rich tapestries to draw from, video games provide cosplayers with incredible creative opportunities. We’ve compiled a massive collection of cosplay inspired by video game characters to celebrate the dedication and passion of these fans, with costumes that runs the gamut from the truly iconic to the downright obscure. Some of these costumes are simple and clean; others are dazzlingly complex; but each cosplayer brings a personal touch to these memorable heroes, villains, and side-characters. These are the best video game cosplays.
The galaxy is in peril from the forces of the evil Zarkon, and there’s only one thing to do: form Voltron. And it looks like the galaxy is in luck, because Netflix and Dreamworks Animation have resurrected the big ‘bot in a new series Voltron: Legendary Defender. The entire first (hopefully, of many) season is available for streaming now, and if you haven’t watched it yet, you should fix that, because it’s fantastic!
In celebration of Voltron’s triumphant return, we’ve compiled a gallery of some of the best fan artwork featuring the big guy and Team Voltron. We even snuck a few Vehicle Voltron pics in there (because there’s no way Vehicle Voltron is ever going to get its own gallery).
Ralph McQuarrie is one of people whose name may not be known to the public at large, but whose imagination gave rise to some of the most indelible, incredible imagery in all pop culture. He was a designer, a concept artist, and a creator who could take fantastic ideas and give them form, serving an essential role in the making of classic films and TV shows.
Born on this day in 1929, McQuarrie designed the spaceships seen in Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters Of The Third Kind and E.T., he conceived the look of the original Battlestar Galactica, he was responsible for a central image in Raiders Of The Lost Ark, he production designed Cocoon, and he worked as visual consultant for Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. But inarguably, his major achievement was defining the look of the Star Wars universe.
Has there ever been a more rag-tag group of intergalactic outsiders than the Guardians of the Galaxy?
We’ve brought together some of the best Guardians of the Galaxy cosplay; whether it’s the cool nature of Peter Quill, the deadly demeanor of Gamora, or the imposing force of Groot, these cosplayers bring out the best of the team's most high-profile line-up. Together or apart, these cosplayers bring the galaxy’s first line of defense to life in excellent fashion.
Whether your first Jean was the Marvel Girl in her green gogo dress, the Phoenix (who we were later told wasn't Jean, but let's be real it was basically Jean), the hyper competent blue-headsock-wearing Jean of the '90s comic and cartoon, or the cool black leather Jean of the turn of the Century (whether drawn by Frank Quitely or played by Famke Janssen) --- it's hard not to be excited about this next era of the character.
To celebrate that, we've put together some of the best Jean Grey fan art on the web. Some of it looks like Sophie Turner, some of it features various looks from the comics, and some of it is entirely new. Phoenix, Marvel Girl, or just going by Jean, she's one of the first ladies of Marvel Comics as well as one of the most powerful, and this artwork celebrates that.
