Sometimes good people say dumb things, and in those times it falls to other good people to call them out. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 actors Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield seem like good people and a sweet couple -- they've been dating since 2011 -- but in a recent kids' Q&A to promote their upcoming movie, Garfield said a dumb, sexist thing. And co-star Stone coolly challenged him for it. You can watch the video right here.

The mail-order ads from comics of the 1950s and '60s have long been a source of great entertainment for comics fans and bloggers over the years, but writer Kek-W (2000 AD) and artist Shaky Kane (The Bulletproof Coffin) are making a whole comic out of them with the new Image Comics one-shot Cap'n Dinosaur, on July 16.
Listen: If someone had asked me what it was that I wanted out of a live show starring a bunch of Marvel Characters, I would've given all the standard answers like big fights and special effects, but I would've also specifically requested that they find a way to throw in dirtbikes and skateboard tricks. I mean, those are my favorite things, but I would know, even as I was asking, that it probably wouldn't happen.
And yet, here we are with a new video about the upcoming Marvel Universe LIVE! arena show, and there are dirtbikes and skateboards. Like, there is actually a halfpipe and a dude straight up doing a Boneless. And, I guess, there's also some cool special effects and a teaser that characters like Captain Marvel and Black Cat will be showing up, but really: dirtbikes and skateboards.
Supreme, the Extreme Studios/Image Comics/Awesome Comics character created by Rob Liefeld and for whom Alan Moore wrote a highly regarded run in the mid-1990s, is coming back, though it's a little hard to say whether the character will look all that familiar to fans.
Image Comics released a rather cryptic press release for Supreme: Blue Rose, a new series by Warren Ellis and Tula Lotay, in which it promises to re-introduce Supreme in a whole new way. The new series premieres July 23.
If you're like me, you've spent countless hours watching television with a frown on your face, frustrated at the limitations of the medium. You've been sitting there watching some of your favorite adult-oriented animated adventure shows, and something just didn't set right. "Listen,' you've undoubtedly said, "This stuff with the moving pictures is all well and good, but why can't it just be a book?"
Well, friends and neighbors, the good people at Dark Horse Comics have heard your complaints, and they have stepped up: In October, Dark Horse will be releasing The Art of the Venture Bros. as a hardcover coffee table book, featuring designs and backgrounds from every episode of the show, with commentary by creators Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer.
Batman may be the one turning 75 this year, but DC Collectibles' recent celebratory release schedule was big on the Clown Prince of Crime. Topping off the some 50 pieces of Batmerch coming from the company between now and the fall will be a Batman Black and White: The Joker by Dick Sprang statue. Though the posted prototype photo recreates Sprang's simulteaneously rubbery and wizened version of the Joker as was seen in his many decades drawing Batman in periodical comics as well as the newspaper strip, it's also a dead-ringer for the villain taking a moment in front of a mirror to take a selfie. Truly fiendish!
The early ’90s were spoiled for choice when it came to comic book adaptations. Not only was Batman: The Animated Series on the air, but X-Men led Marvel’s push to get on the small screen, diving right into the often convoluted continuity of everyone’s favorite mutants, luring in a generation of fans, and paving the way for cartoons to follow.
