25 Greatest Animated Comic Book Covers

ya-feat

Comic covers are meant to get their message across in a single striking image, with the implication of movement provided only by the reader's imagination. We see the single frozen moment; our brain tells the story. Yet some talented digital artists have discovered that there's some fun to be had in animating these images and providing just a little more movement to the moment. We've collected some of our favorite examples of animated comic covers from the past few years, from an endlessly recursive Batman to a lolling Hobbes; from a struggling Spider-Man to a spinning Justice League.

Pepper Potts Finally Gets Her Hot Toys Due

Hot Toys
Hot Toys

Pepper Potts is finally getting hers, and it only took seven years and four dozen other Iron Man figures for Hot Toys to finally make its way to one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's most powerful women.

I was never a huge fan of Pepper Potts until a few years ago. Prior to Matt Fraction's and Salvador Larocca's run on Invincible Iron Man, I didn't much have a feeling about her one way or another, save for her appearances in the Iron Man films. I didn't even read Iron Man regularly enough before Invincible to have a firm grasp of her history. None of that mattered though once she became Rescue. Though Rescue's time in the comics was relatively short, the impact on fandom was long-lasting.

We never got the Rescue figure from Hasbro the company teased as part of its Iron Man 3 line a few years ago, and I've been steadily complaining and questioning why, after so many Tony Starks, Hot Toys hadn't delivered so much as an alternate head sculpt for Pepper Potts and the MK XLII. Today, I couldn't be happier. We're finally getting the Pepper figure we've so desperately needed.

Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases For July 22 2015

bestcomics_0722

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, "Which comic books should I be reading?" or, "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?" The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

‘X-Men: Apocalyse’ Set Photo Teases Storm’s Origins and Chaos in Cairo

X Men Apocalypse
20th Century Fox

That someone is likely Storm. As teased at the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Apocalypse’s titular big bad (played by Oscar Isaac) has origins in Egypt — he is likely the oldest mutant, and perhaps the very first. But he’s not the only one who comes from that part of the world. Ororo Munroe, aka Storm, grew up in Cairo, putting her right on Apocalypse’s home turf.

As Ant-Man opens in theaters, we’re once again reminded to keep our big superhero-loving butts in our seats throughout the duration of any comic-book movie’s closing credits. (For Ant-Man specifically, you’re going to want to stay all the way to the very end, for an extra post-credits scene.) It’s become a superhero movie staple to have a scene tacked on to the end of the film that either teases an upcoming sequel or spinoff, pays off an unresolved storyline, or just sprinkles on one last dash of humor. We’ve gone through all the superhero post-credits scenes that have ever made their way to the big screen to rank them.

We know quite a bit about who’s who in Captain America: Civil War, which might as well be titled Avengers 2.5 for all the MCU players it features. But there’s one cast member we know absolutely nothing about: Martin Freeman, whose fictional identity has remained top secret since his casting was announced a few months ago. In a new interview, Freeman himself lifts the veil of secrecy just a little to tell us what we can expect from his mystery character.

If you haven’t seen Ant-Man yet, then consider the following a spoiler.

Evangeline Lilly’s future as Wasp in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is hardly a secret, though we knew for some time prior to the release of Ant-Man that we wouldn’t see her suit-up as the comic book hero in that film. But one of your first reactions after seeing Ant-Man was probably something like, “Great, so when will we see Lilly as Wasp, then?” Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has an answer. Kind of.

Scouts1-001

Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.

In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
