Alone Against A Horde: ‘Blue Beetle’ #3 [Preview]

BLUE_featured

In Blue Beetle #3, by Keith Giffen and Scott Kolins, Jaime Reyes is one young man facing 150 alien bugs. Fortunately for him, he's a bit of an alien bug himself, thanks to his extraterrestrial Blue Beetle armor. But he's still outmanned, or "outbugged" as the cover puts it, and he's missing the support of his mentor, Ted Kord. It also doesn't help that these vaguely human-shaped space bugs, known as Horde (no article), share a hive mind, which means the attack as one. Despite their number of bodies, this might make them more coordinated than Blue Beetle, considering Jaime and his armor don't always agree on what to do.

‘Bloodshot USA’ #1 Features Bloodshot And Ninjak, Will Be The Best Comic Of The Year

Bloodshot USA #1, Valiant Comics

With Bloodshot's relaunch in October as the four-issue Bloodshot USA looming large, that raises the question of just how Jeff Lemire and Doug Braithwaite are going to top what they've already done. And now, with a preview of the first issue, we know exactly how.

First, they're going to infect the entire population of Manhattan with Bloodshot nanites that'll turn them into mindless killing machines, and second --- oh hell yes --- Ninjak's getting involved.

Valiant Lines Up Lemire And Braithwaite For ‘Bloodshot USA’ In October

Bloodshot USA, Valiant Entertainment

If you've been keeping up with the events of Bloodshot Reborn, then you already know that Ray Garrison isn't the only person to ever be modified into the unstoppable soldier known as Bloodshot. In the current "Bloodshot Island" story arc, readers have seen prototypes that date back almost a hundred years --- including a dog named Bloodhound, which is a pretty solid contender for the Sensational Character Find of 2016.

But in October, it seems that writer Jeff Lemire and artist Doug Braithwaite are taking that idea to the next level with Bloodshot USA, a four-issue miniseries that finds Project Rising Spirit releasing its nanites on New York City --- and turning the entire island of Manhattan into Bloodshots.

DC Reveals ‘Adult Coloring Book’ Variants For January’s Titles

Coloring00

Okay, first of all, that's not what we mean by "adult." Get your mind out of the gutter.

No, these are variant covers for DC's January titles that are jumping on the hot new trend of coloring books marketed to adults. It might sound a little childish, but the act of taking crayons to a piece of paper can be really soothing and help manage anxiety. The only real problem with them is that unlike their kid-oriented counterparts, the ones marketed towards grown-ups tend to suffer from a distinct lack of superheroes, instead relying heavily on boring ol' geometric patterns and shapes. Shapes! Who in the world is relaxed by shapes?!

The Anger Leaks: Greg Rucka On The Question, Part Two

Convergence: The Question #2, DC Comics

If there's one great thing we've gotten out of DC's Convergence event, it's that it has provided a unique and welcome opportunity for creators to return to characters from a very specific time, giving them one more opportunity to set a few things right and give readers a little bit of fanservice along the way. For me, the most anticipated part of that was being able to see Greg Rucka return to Renee Montoya alongside artist Cully Hamner in Convergence: The Question.

To mark the occasion, I spoke to Rucka about his return to the Question, following up on our in-depth interview about Batman and Gotham Central. In the second part of our two-part interview we talked about Renee Montoya's unraveling life, her transformation into The Question, and her search for inner peace, as well as her disappearance in the New 52 and her return in Convergence. This interview contains spoilers for Convergence: The Question.

Greg Rucka Returns To Renee Montoya As DC Announces First Batch Of ‘Convergence’ Minis

question-dc-hed

That sound you just heard is the sound of one million Tumblrs updating.

On Tuesday morning DC announced titles, teams, and plot outlines for ten of its forty planned two-issue Convergence mini-series, which will coincide with the publisher's big event comic next spring and take the place of its regular monthly output. From the looks of it, there's plenty of fan-service involved for people who loved pre-New 52 DC continuity.

Not only is Renee Montoya getting her own two issues as The Question, written by Greg Rucka -- who initially put Montoya in that role -- and drawn by Cully Hamner; but there's a Stephanie Brown Batgirl series, a Nightwing/Oracle wedding story, a Wally West story, a Superman/Lois Lane marriage series, a Bruce/Damian Batman & Robin series, and so on.

Best Abs Ever (This Week): An Appreciation Of Male Comic Book Eye Candy

Eden Fesi-Stefano Caselli-hed

In the process of writing my article about muscles vs curves, and how the big dudes of superhero comics typically fail to represent the tastes of most androphile women, I gathered a collection of images and recommended artists from my correspondents that illustrate the sort of art they'd love to see more of -- but which there's sadly very little of compared to all the T&A fan-service targeted at straight men.

I had far too many recommendations to put in the article, so I've compiled the collection (and a few personal favorites) into a very special one-off post. The collection includes pin-ups, fan art, sketches, and some traditional superhero art from artists who aren't afraid to put a little male eye candy in their work!
