Brian Michael Bendis Tries To Explain ‘Secret Wars’ To 1.5 Million People, Clowns Glenn Beck

Untitled-1

Perhaps the most popular American comic book writer working today, Brian Michael Bendis joined Seth Meyers on NBC's Late Night to promote his upcoming Powers TV show, and to pitch Marvel's Secret Wars event series to everyone out there in TV land. According to Variety, Seth Meyers' nightly show is seen by over 1.5 million viewers, which is surely the largest number of people to be confused by superhero comics continuity in any one moment -- at least since the original Secret Wars was published in 1984, when there were more people buying comics to be confused.

Over the past few years, Kotobukiya has had a rather successful run with its Bishoujo line of statues. Based on the concepts and art of Shunya Yamashita, the Bishoujo (Japanese for "pretty girl") statues often depicted iconic female DC, Marvel and video game characters in a style that exaggerated the femininity of these leading ladies.

GLAAD, the media monitoring group for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender representation, has announced the nominees for its annual Media Awards celebrating positive LGBT representation in mainstream media, including the five comic book series that it believes provided outstanding examples of fair, inclusive, original and impactful LGBT characters in 2014.

This year's awards include first-time nominations for two publishers, Image Comics and Boom Studios. DC Comics is conspicuously absent this year, despite being nominated at least once every year seemingly for as long as GLAAD has recognized comics. Archie Comics is also absent for the first time since the debut of Kevin Keller in 2010.

Vertigo

A film adaptation of beloved comic book series ‘Fables’ has been in the works for some time now, with director Nikolaj Arcel (‘A Royal Affair’) attached to bring the dark fantasy story to the big screen. There’s been little word on development of the project recently, but that just changed with the hiring of ‘X-Men: First Class’ screenwriter (and Matthew Vaughn collaborator) Jane Goldman.

IDW’s ‘Samurai Jack’ Is A Time-Spanning Epic You Need In Your Life

Samurai Jack, IDW

Like everyone else who had eyes, I was a big fan of Samurai Jack when it first showed up on TV. I loved that show, and the visual style and breathtaking animation that took the risk of sparse dialogue and radical shifts in tone were mind-blowing, and in a lot of ways paved the way for a lot of shows that followed. But while I loved the show while it was on, I wasn't so much of a fan that I was really excited about the announcement that it was going to be revived as a comic from IDW. Don't get me wrong, I'm as big a fan of Jim Zub and Andy Suriano as you're likely to find, but I wasn't quite sure how a show that had relied so much on striking, fluid motion for its visual design would make the transition to the relatively static world of comics.

As it turns out, it took to it beautifully, and if you sit down and read the first fifteen issues of the ongoing series, you'll see how well they come together as one vast, epic story that takes Jack in every possible direction -- just like the show.

Scarecrow, Roxy Rocket to Join DC Collectibles’ Batman: The Animated Series Line

Untitled-1

This fall, DC Collectibles' Batman: The Animated Series line will continue to expand its roster of rogues with the additions of Roxy Rocket and Scarecrow. While Roxy has her own appeal, it's The New Adventures of Batman version of Scarecrow -- as the first deluxe figure of the collection -- that will by far give you way more nightmares.

Based on his appearance in 'Never Fear', the Scarecrow is the first figure from the anticipated fifth wave of B:TAS figures. Though that episode is decent, it's no match for 'Over the Edge' (the one where Batgirl has a fevered dream about what'd happen if she died in the line of duty), which came just five episodes later. Still, the most important thing is the incredibly terrifying Scarecrow design that's being brought to life. The original Scarecrow design was brilliant, if a bit too Wizard of Oz, but this version... this is a Scarecrow you actually believed might inspire fear.

Batman And Son: Superfan Gets A Batmobile-Themed Stroller For His Son, Will Hopefully Not Be Shot After Watching Zorro

Tumbler01

Listen: I love Batman, and, for obvious reasons, I am always up for seeing people who love Batman get unexpected and unique Batman-related presents just because they really, really love Batman. As a result, it was pretty fun to watch the video above, an installment of Super-Fan Builds where a big Batman fan and his presumably equally Batman-loving son are given a custom-made stroller built to look like the Tumbler from Batman Begins.

There's just one problem, and it's a pretty obvious one. You, uh... you know how Batman's origin story goes, right? As cool as it is, maybe an item that makes your kid more like Batman is not the best idea.
