Joëlle Jones and Jamie S. Rich are taking readers back to the mid-century lifestyle in their series Lady Killer, but with a twist. Loving, sweet, capable housewife Josie is actually also a ruthless, trained assassin.
Jones and Rich have crafted a complex, fascinating story with a particularly great lead character. The creators' attention to detail regarding the 1960s timeframe and the various gender roles and attitudes of the time give the comic a solid foundation --- which leads to some great friction in the heroine's work/life balance. Plus, she murders some people with grace and violence. ComicsAlliance talked to Rich and Jones about their inspirations, and their plans for the lethal Josie.
Arthur Curry has never looked finer. Late Thursday night, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder tweeted a first look at actor Jason Momoa in the role of Aquaman, a member of the big screen Justice League making his debut in next year's Bat/Supes throwdown.
When Archie Comics announced a while back that it was relaunching its flagship character with a new series by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples, we all knew that the current series was going to come to an end, and today, Archie let us know exactly when that's happening. This June will mark the final issue for Archie, ending at... #666!
Could this mean that Archie's universe gets rebooted due to some kind of sinister pact with the Devil himself?! Has the Author of All Lies finally wreaked his hellish revenge on Archie and his crew for all those weird religious comics they appeared in back in the '70s?Is Reggie actually Satan, as I have so long suspected?
Getting Comic-Con tickets isn't easy, but if you want to go to Comic-Con 2015 --- and, we think you might want to --- we can help you sort through the confusion and answer any questions you might have so you can score yourself tickets for this year's big event.
Hot on the heels of yesterday's announcement that Dynamite is relaunching The Spirit with writer/artist Matt Wagner, it looks like the publisher is once again expanding its line with another unexpected revival. This time, it's Justice, Inc., starring The Avenger --- Paul Ernst's frozen-faced pulp hero --- making a return to comics in a series by Mark Waid and Ronilson Freire.
The DC foothold on TV isn’t losing traction anytime soon, as now that CBS Supergirl has her pilot marching orders, so too does FOX’s Lucifer series, derived from Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman series, now have a greenlight. Not only that, but Jerry Bruckheimer and Len Wiseman have been added to the talent pool bringing Lucifer to the screen.
Toy Fair 2015 was jam-packed with all sorts of super heroes in all shapes and sizes. However, few booths had versions of our favorite Marvel, DC and video game characters that looked as sharp and immaculate at Kotobukiya. With a diverse range of models and statues, the company's 2015 offerings are definitely going to pack a Hulkbusting punch.
Next Saturday at the Long Beach Comic Expo the first ever winner of the Dwayne McDuffie Award for Diversity will be named, and today the organizers revealed an impressive roster of nominees that includes a tribute to the first Chinese-American superhero, a blaxploitation revival, and the most prominent Muslim superhero in North American comics.
Every now and then, an announcement comes along that seems so perfectly natural that you start to wonder why it hasn't happened before. Case in point: Dynamite announced today that they are reviving Will Eisner's The Spirit as an ongoing series written and drawn by Matt Wagner, set to launch at this year's Comic-Con International in San Diego.
The Spirit is, of course, one of the most groundbreaking comics of all time, originally appearing as a newspaper strip that in many ways reads like it was 20 years ahead of its time (while also, it should be noted, featuring the problematic elements of its era). With over 30 years of experience writing and drawing some of the best comics around, Wagner is a natural choice to put his spin on the character.
You can't go to a retailer these days without running across at least one of the many different toy lines Hasbro's released based on Marvel's various characters and properties. We're not complaining. If anything, we want more. Lucky for us, Hasbro's Toy Fair 2015 offerings had just what we were looking for--more Avengers, more Legends, and most of all, more Misty Knight.
