Suicide Squad is the latest film from DC Comics' cinematic universe, and while it has received mostly negative reviews, many die-hard DC fans have come away thrilled by the villain-centric romp.
If you're one of those that loved the film and want more comics in the same vein --- but you already know to check out the John Ostrander, Kim Yale and Luke McDonnell run on the series --- we've got a list of five independent comics to seek out next. Love that? Try this!
Marvel Comics has been teasing this year’s big Spider-Man event “Dead No More” for months now, with teasers indicating the return of many beloved supporting characters and villains including Doctor Octopus, Uncle Ben and Gwen Stacy. Today, however, the true name and nature of the event has been revealed in the form of a standalone miniseries titled “The Clone Conspiracy” by Dan Slott and Jim Cheung.
After that whole "three different costumes in a year" thing he went through in the original Civil War, Peter Parker isn't rushing into anything this time around. Determined to figure things out on his own, Spider-Man uses his connection with Johnny Storm to set up a meeting with Ulysses, the precognitive Inhuman at the heart of Civil War II.
At least, that's what the official synopsis and the Marvel.com interview with writer Christos Gage tell us about the events of Civil War II: Amazing Spider-Man #1. The preview is just two pages of Spidey fighting some purple Vulture guys. But it's a great showcase for Travel Foreman's art, so that's something.
Civil War II is just around the corner, and the news is starting to trickle in about what exactly it’s going to be, and what comics will be included in Marvel’s massive summer event. This past weekend at C2E2, Marvel unveiled a host of Civil War II news, including several brand-new miniseries, as well as announcing some of the details for crossovers that take place in regular books.
One thing that I think we can all appreciate about Wonder Woman is that she's a very creative problem solver. Just look at her signature moves: Anyone can have a plane, but an invisible plane is pretty unique, and while anyone can dodge bullets --- anyone in the superhero genre, I mean --- deflecting them with a pair of Amazonium bracelets isn't just flashier, it makes a statement. Her solutions always tend take things one step further.
In next week's Wonder Woman '77 Chapter 17, though, in which Christos N. Gage, Ruth Fletcher Gage, Dario Brizuela and Andres Ponce continue the adventures of the classic Lynda Carter television series, her solution doesn't just take things a step further, it goes for a full-on stampede. Check out a preview below!
Dark Horse unveiled a slate of new titles for the coming year in a presentation at the retaiiler event Comics PRO in Portland on Thursday, as part of its planned 30th anniversary celebrations. In addition to the previously announced free 40-page 30th Anniversary Dark Horse Day Sampler, showcasing classic Dark Horse titles, the publisher will debut new series by fan-favourite creators including Jeff Lemire, Gail Simone and Cullen Bunn.
Celebrating March Madness (which is some kind of seasonal daze inflicted on America by either baseball or basketball or one of those other strange sports you all seem to love so much), Oni Press filled the week leading up to this past weekend's Emerald City Comic-Con with a series of big announcements, including the previously-reported news that the publisher is opening up submissions to everyone, and no less than seven new projects from a host of impressive creative teams. To help you pick a few winners (that's what March Madness means, right?) we've rounded up all the announcements in one place.
Marvel's Spider-Verse panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday saw the announcement of two new mini series spinning out of the multi-dimensional event. In Scarlet Spiders, a trio of spider-clones come together for a potential suicide mission, while Spider-Verse Team Up features multiple Spider-Men from multiple Spider-Man creators.
Next month, Otto Octavius will once again don the red-and-black tights and highly reflective lenses of his Spider-Man costume in Superior Spider-Man #32 by Dan Slott, Christos Gage, Giuseppe Camunicoli and Adam Kubert.
There's just one major problem with that: Octavius was inhabiting Peter Parker's body when he was Spider-Man, and Peter has that back now. He is the sole owner of his own body. So how in the world could the Doc Ock Spider-Man's title come back? The easy answer, of course, is simply "comics," but let's explore some of the possible explanations, shall we?
Dan Slott must have been saving up his jokes over the past 16 months or so.
The Amazing Spider-Man #1, the issue that officially reintroduces Peter Parker to the Marvel Universe after a lengthy absence during which his body was under the control of Doctor Octopus, is chock full of laugh lines that really hit. Slott, artist Humberto Ramos, inker Victor Olazaba and colorist Edgar Delgado get the tone just right, but I couldn't help but feel that the story itself was a bit lacking in forward momentum, as the lingering effects of Superior Spider-Man dominated the issue's lead story.
