Best Cosplay Ever (On A Ship): Fan2Sea Comic Con Cruise 2017

Fan2Sea-Cosplay feat2

The first ever comic convention on a cruise took place last weekend on Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Seas sailing from Tampa, Florida, to Cozumel, Mexico. Despite the unusual venue, Fan2Sea featured everything you'd expect from a landlocked con, including panels, signings, parties, screenings and, of course, cosplay.

Being out at sea didn't stop these dedicated cosplayers from pulling out their best looks, often with a strong nautical theme, whether it was a seafaring Deadpool or two, or a watery Disney villain like Ursula or Tamatoa. ComicsAlliance was on the scene, courtesy of Fan2Sea, to capture some of our favorite cosplay on the cruise. This is the best cosplay ever... on a ship!

Fantastic Five: Best Ice Villains

ice

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, there is a greater than average chance that you are currently buried in snow or will be some time in the next six weeks. In that case, you know the true power of the ice and cold. This week we're counting down the five most nefarious villains to wield that destructive-at-worst, annoying-at-best power to blanket the earth in frozen water.

Caitlin and the Spaceman: The Future Killer Frost Gets the Spotlight in Phil Hester’s ‘Flash: Season Zero’ Story [Exclusive Preview]

Flash 19 SF Cover-feat

In a Reddit Ask Me Anything yesterday, actor Danielle Panabaker confirmed that her Flash TV show character Caitlin Snow will eventually take on her comic book alter ego, the supervillain Killer Frost, stating, "from the beginning I knew that Caitlin Snow becomes Killer Frost. And I can't wait to suit up and duke it out with the boys!" That's good news for fans who want to see more of Caitlin in action, but it might be bad news for those fans who enjoy seeing her on the side of the heroes.

In a timely bit of synergy, Monday's installment of the Flash: Season Zero digital comic also sees Caitlin in action, and this time on the side of the heroes, in a one-shot story by writer and artist Phil Hester that puts Caitlin in the spotlight --- and we have an exclusive preview!

Who Owns Power Girl? On Ownership, Gerry Conway, and DC Entertainment’s Royalty System

quark template 22pg.qx

Writer Gerry Conway, who created several characters during his time at both Marvel and DC (including Firestorm, Killer Croc, Vixen and The Punisher) took to his blog recently to discuss and throw a spotlight on the way DC pay credit to their creative talent for the characters they created while working for the company.

By introducing what they call ‘creator equity participation’, DC was one of the first publishers to offer royalty payments to creators for when characters were used outside of the comics medium --- such as in television, cinema, toys, or video games. Chuck Dixon, for example, is paid whenever Bane appears in a film or video game, as he is cited as the character’s co-creator.
