Matt Wagner Resurrects ‘The Spirit’ at Dynamite

Spirit00

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.

Director Bryan Singer announced on Instagram that Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) has signed on to star as Nightcrawler, a sleazy Hollywood paparazzo who will stop at nothing to get his shot. (Wait...)

Toy Fair 2015: Square Enix Play Arts’ Alternate Heroes Take Center Stage

Square Enix Play Arts Kai Batman Arkham Knight Batman

Though Square Enix may be more famous for its video games, the company's had a lot of success over the years with its action figure properties in the Play Arts Kai line as well. Though initially Square focused on its own properties, during the past decade, we've seen the company interpret various movie and comic book licenses in its own unique way. Toy Fair 2015 featured a smaller sampling of Square's upcoming Play Arts Kai figures, but what we saw showed the company still has an incredibly unique eye for design.
