If you remember the Fox series Touch, you'll recall that one of its lead characters was a young man with very special powers who never spoke. The actor who played that role, 14-year-old David Mazouz, has now been cast as Bruce Wayne in Fox's new Gotham TV series. Odds are he'll have a little more to say in this role.
The producers have also cast the teenaged thief Selina Kyle with newcomer Camren Bicondova.
So it looks like, at least for now, we're just going to have to settle for the cake topper versions of Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael. Are you ready to see some plastic turtles who are wearing shoes? Click on through.
Jason Fischer aka JFish has got his monsters on his mind and his mind on his monsters -- and he's transporting them to paper with Monstroleum: Monsters of the Dragon's Keep, a five-volume encyclopedia of sorts covering the characteristics of 55 total foes (11 per volume) that readers might encounter on a dungeon crawl. But that's not all. To expedite the process, JFish is offering three tiers of subscription preorders that will put even more mythological menaces in the hands of his fans.
Over the past 40 years, Tom Batiuk’s Funky Winkerbean has transitioned from a gag-a-day comic strip about a high school to an ongoing chronicle of pure, abject misery. Thanks to the ongoing commentary on Josh Fruhlinger’s Comics Curmudgeon, I am now completely obsessed with it, which is why I spend a little time every month rounding up its finest examples of crushing despair.
You might think that February might not lend itself all that well to the Funkyverse's usual brand of complete and utter soul-crushing despair. I mean at the very least, there's Valentine's Day, and we should at least get a few strips about lovey-dovey romance and happiness, right? Wrong. So, so wrong. February may be the shortest month, but that just means that Batiuk and Ayers have to work even harder to cram every ounce of existential dread into their comics -- and just in case you think I'm exaggerating, consider that DEATH ITSELF MADE AN APPEARANCE last month, and that's not even the weirdest part.
Rocksteady Games is returning to the Batman franchise later this year with the newest, and perhaps last, game in the "Arkham" series of games, Arkham Knight.
The game will feature a new, driveable Batmobile, which resembles a somewhat smaller Tumbler from the Christopher Nolan Batman films. Though rumor has it that Hush will be appearing in the game, the confirmed villains so far are Scarecrow, Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn (who will even be playable in challenge maps), all of whom also appeared in previous Arkham games. Check out the game's announcement trailer after the jump.
As I scrolled through all 356 pages of Selected Ambient Works: 11-13, a free PDF download compiling tons of sketches, fan art, comic book pages and finished illustrations by Giannis Milonogiannis, creator of Archaia's Old City Blues and contributing artist to Image's Prophet, I thought to myself, "Is Milonogiannis a retrofuturist? Is he doing with the 1980s and cyberpunk what Dean Motter did with the 1930s and noir?"
The best Superman comic book currently published is about to get even better with the addition of Steve Rude, arguably one of today's best living American comic book artists. The April 14 edition of DC Comics' digital-first Adventures of Superman anthology will see the master storyteller collaborate with writer (and a brilliant, influential artist in his own right) Jerry Ordway for a Superman story starring OMAC, a cult favorite creation of Rude's hero, Jack Kirby.
But Rude and Ordway are just two of the creators DC has lined up for the weekly Adventures of Superman -- one of ComicsAlliance's picks for the best comic books of 2013.
In her 40 years as a global icon, Hello Kitty has been involved in some pretty strange business ventures. That's probably why her reach in the market goes far beyond just stuffed animals and pencil cases and into stuff like a rocket fist-firing robot, that toaster that burns her face into your bread and the theme park attraction where she leads Noah (of Ark-building fame) back from "the far edge of the galaxy" in a parade of animals. This week, though, her latest business venture was announced, and it's teaming up with New Japan Pro Wrestling for a line of merchandise.
It seems the world is finally reshaping itself according to what I want. Check out the t-shirts below!
