In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
This week's selection of the best cosplay ever includes Aquaman and Aqualad, Moana, Howl's Moving Castle, Yuri Katsuke, and more.
Things were weird for everyone in the Silver Age, but they were all the weirder for Aquaman. Living under the ocean, surrounded by sea life, and in an era when accurate science was even less of a priority for comic book storytelling, basically anything could happen to Aquaman as long as it involved water.
This gallery showcases some of his strangest moments from the Silver Age, featuring material from Adventure Comics and Aquaman's solo title.
This week, the kids take a field trip to the Tower of Fate, and Aqualad heads back to Atlantis for whatever the underwater version of Spring Break is. "Denial" was written by Thomas Pugsley, directed by Michael Chang, and originally aired on February 18, 2011. "Downtime" was written by Kevin Hopps, directed by Jay Oliva, and originally aired on March 4, 2011.
DC Comics’ big summer event one-shot DC Universe: Rebirth #1 goes on sale this week, and the internet is abuzz with news, reveals and spoilers concerning one of the biggest comics of the year. The one-shot by Geoff Johns, Ethan Van Sciver, Gary Frank and Ivan Reis sees the return of familiar faces from inside and outside the DC Universe, and DC is already publicizing those revelations in the press, so we’ve rounded up the biggest developments from this blockbuster story from DC-approved sources like USA Today, IGN and CBR, for those readers who want the full rundown.
If you don't want to be spoiled for any of the events of DC Universe: Rebirth #1 before the book comes out on Wednesday, go learn about some other comics you could be reading instead. Spoilers for the future of the DC Universe follow.
Ever since Robin, Kid Flash, and Aqualad teamed up to take on Mr. Twister in The Brave and the Bold #54, way back in the summer of 1964, The Teen Titans have been the second most important superhero team in the DC Universe. And considering the most important team, the Justice League, is basically a pantheon of gods, that's nothing to sneeze at. Being comprised of younger heroes, the Titans are the team who live on the cutting edge and reflect the times (in the strange ways that comics do) whether it's crazy made-up Bob Haney 1960's slang, or Marv Wolfman and George Perez injecting X-Men-inspired 1980's soap opera.
We put together a gallery of the best Teen Titans fan art to celebrate these heroic kids.
The Academy Awards are almost upon us, which means that it's time for the entire movie industry to rent out a very large room and say, "Good job, Movie Industry" to itself for about four hours. I'm told a lot of people find this very exciting, but as they have never, to my knowledge, even mentioned Bulbasaur's groundbreaking role in Pokemon: The First Movie, it's not really something I'm interested in. Besides, the movies that I tend to enjoy often value spectacle over substance. It might not win any awards, but I've often thought that there's a lot of value in giving audiences something that they just couldn't see otherwise.
Which, I imagine, is probably there were film producers in the DC Universe who were once so desperate for cool stunts that they decided to hire an actual superhero to handle them --- all without ever explaining to him how movies worked.
This week, we're turning our attention to the only incarnation of the Teen Titans that matters: Teen Titans Go, which has shown us an ideal version of the DC Universe where the heroes are mostly preoccupied with burritos and where Batman bros down with Commissioner Gordon instead of fighting any actual crime. But who are the best guest stars? Watch and see!
Mego's storied Worlds Greatest Super Heroes line of the '70s shaped an action figure era with 8" articulated plastic dolls adorned with cloth costumes, but there was a special corner of the line reserved for sidekicks standing just 7" tall. That line? The 1977 Teen Titans series featuring Speedy, Aqualad, Wonder Girl and Kid Flash. Following the release of several waves of Batman Mego reissues, Figures Toy Company is turning its attention to rolling out all four of the previously limited edition dolls in the first quarter of 2014.
Jackson Hyde's been making quite a splash name for himself these days as the new Aqualad with starring roles in both Cartoon Network's Young Justice animated TV show and DC Comics' year-long Brightest Day series, but his greatest achievement yet definitely has to be getting cast in plastic by DC Direct...
DC Direct's third wave of action figures based on Geoff Johns' ongoing "Brightest Day" storyline was revealed last week at New York City Comic con with a lineup sporting a few characters who've never graced the toy shelf before...
