One of the things I love most about Spider-Man (and let me tell you, there's a lot I love about Spider-Man) is how adaptable the character is to different situations, settings, and even different characters taking on the role.
Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott and an assembled team of writers and artists are picking up that ball and running with it in the upcoming "Spider-Verse" event, and they're getting a little bit of a head start with what they're calling "Edge of Spider-Verse," a series of one-issue stories that introduce readers to the various iterations of Spider Men and Women. Marvel has released solicitations for the first three issues of the five-issue series, which feature Spider-Man Noir, a new spin on Spider-Woman, and a futuristic Spider-Man who wears a helmet (and who probably isn't from 2099).
Deadline reports that Justin Marks, writer of the upcoming live-action Jungle Book movie and of the screenplay for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, is adapting a treatment written by Oliver. David S. Goyer, who has been a driving force behind a good many DC Comics movie properties over the past several years, will produce.
We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.
It's fairly commonplace for comics to change creative teams or other details early on in their runs, but it's pretty rare for a comic to change its actual title between the first and second issues.
That's exactly what's happening with Simon Oliver, Robbi Rodriguez, and Rico Renzi's Vertigo series formerly known as Collider, though. Starting with issue #2, which comes out August 28, the series will be known as FBP:Federal Bureau of Physics.
Collider #1 is an attractive package. And I say package because that's really what this feels like. The way comics work, or at least the way they should work, is with every piece -- script, art, color, and lettering -- working in sync, and when everything is right, you have a good story. Sometimes great visuals carry a mediocre script, and vice versa, but that's not ideal. In Collider, the newest Vertigo series, you have a comic that works: a script from Simon Oliver, art from Robbi Rodriguez, colors from Rico Renzi, letters from Steve Wands and a cover by Nathan Fox, melding together to tell a fun story about weird physics, dangerous jobs, and the inevitability of change.
Collider is a new ongoing Vertigo series starting next month that sees its authors returning to a high concept hook that may be familiar to readers of their previous work, but from all appearances seems to be a considerable step up in style from the already enjoyable comics they've created before.
It took a special kind of artist to bring Stephen Colbert's Tek Jansen to life, but Robbi Rodriguez is a special man. He's got a brisk, Tim Sale-meets-Jim Mahfood lightness to his work that manages to give his subjects energy while simultaneously keeping design elements fresh and dramatic as needed.Rodriguez's blog is filled with brilliant commi

When the comic book industry releases its upcoming solicitations (two months in advance), there's always a lot of buzz and fanfare over the announcements for the four "front of the book" publishers: Dark Horse, DC, Image, and Marvel. T
