Yesterday, DC Comics gave fans their first full look at the costume lead actor Grant Gustin will be wearing in the new The Flash TV series on The CW. But the view was a little obstructed.

Today, leaked photos and an Instagram video from the set show the costume in action. We even get a chance to see Gustin running (at regular human speed, if not even slower). More importantly, we get to see him look like he's doing a kickflip sans skateboard... although Tumblr has already seen to making that Photoshop happen.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 1 Recap, Episode 15: ‘Yes Men’

CA_AgentsOfSHIELD112-1211

In tonight's Agents of SHIELD: Sif happens. Yes, for the first time since the Nick Fury cameo in episode two, an actual non-Coulson-shaped major character from the Marvel Studios movies makes an appearance! Everything's going to be great from now on!

Actually, despite claims from some corners of fandom that viewers will never be happy with Agents of SHIELD until Iron Man appears in every episode, I never expected Iron Man to appear, nor did I ever ask for it, and I'm surprised to see Sif in an episode. The main thing I ever wanted from this show was some decent TV. So, I'm grateful for Lady Sif, but let's see how this episode fares on the other front.

The Flash’s TV Costume Looks Built For Speed

Back in 1990 when John Wesley Shipp suited up to be a TV version of The Flash, his costume looked exactly like something out of the comic books of the time. It also looked downright impossible to run in.

The new Flash series on The CW starring Grant Gustin looks to be striking something of a balance between fealty for the look of the source material and functionality in the first image of the full suit released Tuesday by DC comics. Check out the full image after the jump.

Zac Gorman And Friends’ ‘Tossed Salad & Scrambled Eggs’ Frasier Zine Can’t Come Fast Enough

Thanks to Netflix, an entire generation has had the opportunity to binge-watch Frasier, the 11-season Kelsey Grammer-starring Cheer's spinoff set in Seattle that chronicled the radio call-in show hosting, café-crawling sitcommery of Dr. Frasier Crane. A sample of this binge-watching population, of course, has been a vanguard of comics talent, including Nedroid's Anthony Clark, Gunshow's K.C. Green and many more. So it's only fitting that I've spent the past 10 months or so stoked to see more of Magical Game Time creator Zac Gorman's upcoming Tossed Salad And Scrambled Eggs zine, which could very well pack tons of oddball Frasier homages into a package -- just miles of Niles, man.

Comics Alliance Podcast 103: Cape Comics Art, Arkham Aesthetics, and Agents of W.T.F.

Untitled-1

Welcome back to the ComicsAlliance podcast, covering the latest comic book entertainment news topics. Joining Senior Editors Andy Khouri and Caleb Goellner for this episode are Senior Writer Chris Sims and Staff Writer Andrew Wheeler, who discuss the nature of mainstream American comics with respect to idiosyncratic creators working on corporate properties -- particularly the artists drawing titles published by Marvel and DC Comics.

The group also checks in on the Agents of SHIELD television series, which by most accounts is something of a misfire for the otherwise victorious filmed entertainment division of Marvel.

Finally, we discuss the aesthetic impact the Arkham Asylum games may or may not be having on the ever popular Batman universe of comic books and other stories and products.

Original Harlan Ellison ‘Star Trek’ Episode Script Gets A Comic Book Miniseries At IDW

The City On The Edge Of Forever Star Trek Harlan Ellison main
IDW

With its dramatic tale of time travel trauma, "City on the Edge of Forever" is widely considered one of the best episodes of the original Star Trek TV series, but what made it to the screen was quite different from sci-fi writer Harlan Ellison's original script, which was too long for a one-hour TV show and had far too many speaking parts for the production budget.

Comics don't have those restrictions, though, so IDW Publishing is taking Ellison's full, original teleplay and adapting it into a comics mini-series, starting in June. It'll be written by Scott Tipton and David Tipton, and with interior art by J.K. Woodward. Juan Ortiz will be the artist on the main covers, which give the series a sort of pulp-novel look, while movie poster artist Paul Shipper will be on variant covers. Ellison will serve as a sort of consultant.

Now that NBC's Constantine series has its title character in place in the form of Criminal Minds' Matt Ryan, it's filling out the rest of the cast with a few actors who have appeared in shows that share Constantine's occult, macabre, and supernatural overtones.

Charles Halford, who True Detective fans know as the memorable Reggie Ledoux, will play John Constantine's old friend and confidant Chas. Also joining the cast are Lost's Harold Perrineau, who will play an angel named Manny tasked with overseeing Constantine's actions, and True Blood's Lucy Griffiths, who will portray the female lead, Liv (just like The CW's Vertigo Comic adaptation iZombie will star a woman in supernatural turmoil - get it? Liv? Live? harharhar), a woman marked for death by a demon.
