The CW’s superhero series Arrowre-imagines Green Arrow for a TV audience as a tough, often ruthless vigilante bent on setting things right in his home of Starling City by punishing the wicked. ComicsAlliance’s Matt Wilson will be following along to see how he fares.
This week, a certain unit that's more of a squad makes its TV debut, Ollie turns to Russian mobsters for help, and Dig gets involved in a moral quandary.
Take, for instance, what the fine folks at Fawcett did back in 1946, when they took a story that, by itself, was nothing special, and then skewed it just far enough that it's one of the most mind-boggling comics I've ever read.
Season four of The Walking Dead, AMC’s television adaptation of the Eisner Award-winning Image Comics series launched by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore and now drawn by Charlie Adlard, is well into its second half, and the despair has been turned up to eleven. ComicsAlliance’s John Parker is back again to see who lives, who dies, and oh my god the horror.
This week on The Walking Dead: nothing. Nothing happens. Carol and Tyreese and all three kids just have a nice, chilled-out episode where they point out shapes in the clouds and stuff. Literally nothing at all happens, so we can talk about something else now. Something pleasant and uplifting, like Darfur, or terminal cancer.
Each week, ComicsAlliance’s Chris Sims and Matt Wilson host the War Rocket Ajax podcast, their online audio venue for interviews with comics creators, reviews of the books of the week, and whatever else they want to talk about. ComicsAlliance is offering clips of the comics-specific segments of the show several days before the full podcast goes up at WarRocketAjax.c
Season four of The Walking Dead, AMC’s television adaptation of the Eisner Award-winning Image Comics series launched by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore and now drawn by Charlie Adlard, is well into its second half, and the despair has been turned up to eleven. ComicsAlliance’s John Parker is back again to see who lives, who dies, and who gets an apocalyptic case of stomach flu that reduces them to a shuddering lump of meat for four days.
It's all about isolation this week, as our stomachs spasm and fluids leak out of everything while our bodies flash back-and-forth from hot to cold!
The CollegeHumor illustrator known for such features as The X-Men Guide To Puberty, Superhero Sex Moves and What If Superheroes Were Hipsters?, Caldwell Tanner is a reliably funny cartoonist who, like your ComicsAlliance staff, has a big soft spot for dogs (we cannot testify to his estimation of other humans -- we think you can guess ours). As part of the Sidekicks series of animal rescue advocacy shorts, tanner details not just his history with and affection for dogs, but also why they are uniquely fascinating to draw and what role The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy had in Tanner's adoption of his pet and muse, Harriet.
In the interest of adding to "the long list of things that weren’t gonna photoshop themselves," Director of Publicity for Oni Press John Schork recently took to his personal Tumblr account to gift humankind with one of the most breathtaking mashups of our time. Jack Kirby + Taco Bell = Jack Kirby's Fourth Meal.
When Marvel announced the concept of All-New X-Men, we were sceptical. A comic book about the original teenage X-Men in the present-day Marvel Universe felt like a crazy idea for a miniseries, much less an ongoing. Yet Brian Michael Bendis and Stuart Immonen won us over; All-New X-Men is solid entertainment, earning a spot in ComicsAlliance's list of the Best Comic Books of 2013.
And yet, 15 months and 24 issues later, Marvel Girl, Beast, Iceman, Cyclops and Angel are still with us, and we're still kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop. Is this really the new status quo? Is it really sustainable to have two different versions of so many major characters rocking around the Marvel Universe?
In tonight's Agents of SHIELD: Sif happens. Yes, for the first time since the Nick Fury cameo in episode two, an actual non-Coulson-shaped major character from the Marvel Studios movies makes an appearance! Everything's going to be great from now on!
Actually, despite claims from some corners of fandom that viewers will never be happy with Agents of SHIELD until Iron Man appears in every episode, I never expected Iron Man to appear, nor did I ever ask for it, and I'm surprised to see Sif in an episode. The main thing I ever wanted from this show was some decent TV. So, I'm grateful for Lady Sif, but let's see how this episode fares on the other front.
And, if you're me, and you've spent your entire life gathering up as much weird and forgotten comic book ephemera as you can, you will also always have the 1996 comic book adaptation of Space Jam. Seriously, I can't get rid of this thing, so since now is one of exactly two times in the past 18 years that there has been renewed interest in Space Jam, we might as well have a look back to see how it translated to the comic book page.
