The Dress. For a little while there, in between one story and the next, the dress was all anyone seemed to be talking about --- or more specifically, a picture of a dress. Some people swore that the dress in the picture was white and gold; others felt certain it was blue and black. Color, which we tend to think of as a matter of fact, is really a matter of perception --- but, "it all depends how you look at it" is an unsatisfying answer to a question that nearly tore the internet in two.
Thankfully there are people whose whole business is color, among them the talented artists who color our comics, applying color theory to create space, time, mood, and emotion on the page. One such artist is Nathan Fairbairn, whose projects include Multiversity and Wonder Woman: The Trial of Diana Prince. Fairbairn was as confounded by the mysteries of The Dress as anyone, but as an expert in his field he had a better idea than most of us on how they might be decoded.
Super, if not-particularly surprising news, everyone! CBS forthcoming Supergirl series has followed The Flash’s lead in returning past franchise stars to the new edition, recruiting Lois & Clark star Dean Cain and original cinematic Supergirl Helen Slater for “top-secret” roles. Might the former Superman and Supergirl’s characters be so easy to identify in CBS’ rendition, however?
Though she’s best known as a seductive jewel thief, Catwoman has long been a protector of the unprotected. Justin Gray and Ron Randall will continue this tradition in the two issue Catwoman miniseries during DC's Convergence event, wherein the erstwhile villainess becomes Suicide Slum’s watchful eye --- only to encounter the Batman of the Kingdom Come universe standing in her way. What’s a bad-girl-gone-good to do? ComicsAlliance sought out the creative team to discuss the past, present, and future of DC’s feline fatale.
We thought it unlikely that Arrow could spawn yet another CW spinoff to see The Atom joining The Flash but it turns out the network’s real plan is infinitely crazier. The CW is reportedly working on a new series to feature not only Brandon Routh’s Atom, but also Victor Garber’s Firestorm, Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold, and craziest of all, Caity Lotz’s Black Canary!
Almost fifteen years after the comic disappeared from shelves, Joe Madureira's Battle Chasers is set up for a big comeback. Of course, since he's gotten a taste of video game development, Joe Mad's not content to just revisit the fan-favorite in comic book form.
Cartoonist Jeremy Bastian's Cursed Pirate Girl is an intricate work of art that follows, as promised, a cursed pirate girl who travels the seas engaging in adventures, in a piratical Alice in Wonderland kind of way. Illustrated like a late-19th century fever dream, it's a book that rewards repeat reads. The first graphic novel was released as a hardcover in 2012 by Archaia to great critical acclaim after a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2010. And now, a new Cursed Pirate Girl story is on its way from Archaia this summer.
You didn't think Hot Toys was going to keep its biggest weapon on the bench forever, did you? Yes, that's right; Hot Toys has finally added a Hulk to the growing roster of upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron figures.
Marvel’s Agent Carter at last got her “Valediction” with last night’s first season finale, finally letting go of Captain America, but surprisingly setting up The Winter Soldier along the way. ABC has yet to formally commit to Season 2, but what do Carter writers and executive producers have to say on its potential plot, and further Captain America crossover?
You’re warned of spoilers for last night’s Agent Carter finale from here on out.
At long last, Richie Rich's reign of capitalist terror is over, at least where the options for children's shows on Netflix are concerned.
The company's slate of original programming has been growing pretty steadily in recent months, and now, less than a week after the debut of the first season of new adventures for the pint-sized oligarch, the announcement came down via Variety about what they're working on for the next year, including a new series based on Playmobil figures and, of more interest to those of us driven primarily by nostalgia, reboots of Inspector Gadget and Danger Mouse.
Few comic book writers are as hot right now as the wife-and-husband team of Kelly Sue DeConnick and Matt Fraction, so it’s not all that surprising that the couple has signed a deal with Universal to develop their work into television shows. What is a little surprising is that this duo found their success creating deeply personal and wildly experimental comics, which means that some of the best comic book writers working today are going to adapt some of the best comics currently being published. This could be something special.
