Good Thing: How Valiant Makes Blockbuster Superheroes Accessible

Valiant Comics
Valiant Comics

I'm not a major superhero kinda guy. I came to comics fairly late, and never managed to dive that much into the superhero realm. I think I always thought it was too big, with too much to catch up on, and a lot of the superhero books I read when I was younger always seemed like they knew something I didn't. That whole lore and world existed way before I was even born.

I even came to Valiant's rebooted universe pretty late, only catching up with it recently. But with Valiant, I found a superhero universe I could actually jump into.

Why A ‘Nightwing’ Movie Could Be Vital For Roma Representation

DC Comics
DC Comics

Last month Warner Bros announced plans for a Nightwing movie from Lego Batman Movie director Chris McKay, set within the evolving DC Cinematic Universe. The announcement is a logical next step for the studio, as it places a spotlight on one of the most popular characters in the Batman family.

It's also news that makes a lot of fans of the character nervous, as Nightwing is one of the few positive mainstream representations of Rromani identity in popular culture. Many fans fear that this element of the character won't make it to the big screen, in the latest example of live action comics adaptations ignoring opportunities for diversity and minority representation.

Strip Panel Naked: The Direct Approach of Jeff Lemire’s ‘Royal City’

Image Comics
Image Comics

I've been a fan of Jeff Lemire ever since I first read The Essex Country Trilogy five or so years ago. Through a lot of the stories where he's been writer and artist, there's a very direct approach to framing that he rarely deviates from, particularly in work such as the current Image Comics series Royal City, where he takes a more down-to-earth tack.

It's hard to tell if this is something Lemire is doing purposefully to create this effect, or if it's just the style of his art. Either way, the effect it creates is perfect for the character-focused, humanising stories that Lemire typically tells.

Good Thing: Who’s A Good Boy? Lockjaw’s A Good Boy! Yes He Is!

We know that there's an Inhumans television show coming whether we like it or not, and we know Marvel Comics is going to keep pushing the franchise in the comics whether we like it or not, but it doesn't have to all be grim acceptance of our terrigen-infused future. The proliferation of Inhumans #content has been a good thing too, as it's given us Ms. Marvel, Moon Girl, and perhaps most importantly, lots more opportunities to see what Lockjaw is up to!
