Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there's always some new obscure fact to learn. That's why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite characters in our new video series. You think you know comics? Well here's a few things you might not know!
This week, we're taking a close look at a minor Hulk villain that a few of you have probably heard of, mostly because he ended up becoming one of the most popular and marketable characters in comic book history: Wolverine!
‘The Walking Dead’ season 5 shambled out its 5th entry with Sunday’s latest "Self Help” but how did it hold up to the comic book continuity? Abraham's past is revealed as Eugene lets slip a shocking secret about their mission to D.C., so what’s next for ‘The Walking Dead’ as the fifth season kicks into gear?
If there's one thing we've learned from our years on the Internet, it's that there's no aspect of comics that can't be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there's no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we're taking it upon ourselves to compile lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
This week, we're talking about superhero teams, and while everybody these days loves the Avengers and, shockingly, the Guardians of the Galaxy, that doesn't mean that they're all winners. That's why we're taking on five of the worst teams in comics, from the weird but secretly awesome all the way down to the absolute dregs!
Do you like stories about characters from disparate comic-book universes coming together to meet and perhaps fight in an arena of an all-powerful being's choosing?
If not, you may want to skip 2015's event comics. On Monday, DC unveiled its plans for Convergence, its spring 2015 event about a universe-spanning conflict. Now, after three-plus weeks of teases, Marvel has added some clarity to its summer 2015 event, Secret Wars. Guess what it's going to be via a new, minute-long trailer.
If you guessed "a universe-spanning conflict," you are correct.
The CW’s superhero series Arrow re-imagines Green Arrow for a TV audience as a tough, often ruthless vigilante bent on setting things right in his home of Starling City by punishing the wicked. ComicsAlliance’s Matt Wilson is back for the third season of the popular series in our recap feature we’re officially dubbing Pointed Commentary.
This week: A hacker with a link to Felicity Smoak causes panic in Starling City, Ollie lies to his sister a whole bunch, and the day is saved via a signal watch.
Opening on November 7 is the new Disney animated hullabaloo titled ‘Big Hero 6.’ In ‘Big Hero 6,’ five regular human beings are brought together to fight crime alongside an inflatable robot doctor. I swear that all of this will make sense, kind of. Ahead, as a service to the world, we answer every question that you could possibly have about ‘Big Hero 6.’
Marvel's 'Agent Carter' TV series has unclassified a few scant bits of footage here and there, but unless you were lucky enough to hang around New York Comic-Con, fans of the Hayley Atwell-lead Marvel spinoff series have been left colder than Cap until now. Check out Howard Stark's return as 'Iron Man''s pop gives Peggy a mission in the first official clip from Marvel's 'Agent Carter'!
If there's one thing that you need to know about the staff here at ComicsAlliance, it's that we're staunchly anti-cannon, and feel that they should be busted as often as possible. As a result, our interest was piqued when we heard about a new Kickstarter for a project from comic artist and animator LeSean Thomas called Cannon Busters, which seeks to raise $120,000 for what we assume will be an extended and thorough campaign design to leave no cannon un-busted. Finally, we will have these fearsome weapons out of the hands of the pirates that menace our shores.
With the 'Avengers 2' trailer, extended trailer and advance trailer for 'Avengers: Infinity War', you're probably sick of all this 'Avengers' footage and don't want or need to see anymore. You certainly don't want to see this 'Avengers 2' clip with Cap and Iron Man getting heated with each other and introducing the tension that will continue through 'Captain America: Civil War'. Oh wait, you're not sick of 'Avengers 2' and you DO want to see this footage? OK, good.
Archie Comics' rebirth in recent years as a prominent publisher of horror comics was certainly unexpected, but it's produced some really great stuff, like the brutally horrific zombie comic Afterlife With Archie, and the new, more atmospheric horror of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. And now, it's responsible for fan-films.
