Mighty Mouse was famously created by Paul Terry in 1942 as a combination of two of the most popular characters in the world, Superman and Mickey Mouse. Now the Mouse is back in a new series from Dynamite, written by Sholly Fisch with art by Igor Lima. The first issue, out in June, features variant covers by legendary artist Neal Adams and painter/legendary fan of old stuff Alex Ross.
We're in the midst of Monsters Unleashed and Inhumans vs X-Men, and Secret Empire is on the horizon, but if you haven't had your fill of marquee Marvel stories, then do we have good news for you. Earlier today, the publisher tweeted a teaser image featuring the classic and modern versions of a number of icon heroes including Captain America, Thor and Iron Man, but what does it mean for the future of the Marvel Universe?
Over its 25 years, Image Comics has carved out a reputation as the biggest non-superhero publisher in North American comics. Sure, it launched 25 years ago with books like Spawn, Youngblood, and so on, but it evolved into a company that embraces and celebrates genre diversity. Yet it was also at Image that a new superhero universe was created that gave us many of the best superhero stories of the past twenty years; Astro City, by Kurt Busiek, Alex Ross, and Brent Anderson.
Civil War II is over (or at least the new series launches are pretending it is), and Captain Marvel will have to wrestle with her role in things, and how much the public loves her for it, in The Mighty Captain Marvel #1, a new ongoing series written by novelist Margaret Stohl, with art by Ramon Rosanas. Check out an unlettered preview!
This week we're turning to Astro City, the superhero meta-epic created by Kurt Busiek with artists Alex Ross and Brent Anderson. It originally launched at Image Comics way back in 1995, and now lives on at Vertigo.
Astro City would work best as a big budget semi-anthology TV series. The superheroes would have recurring roles, but each episode would focus on a different character, whether it's one of them or one of the regular citizens. With that in mind, I've focused on a few of the earliest stories, with room to cast more down the road.

Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, has been around for over a century, with the latest of his 200+ movies, The Legend of Tarzan, hitting theatres this past weekend. Tarzan's swung through just about every storytelling medium you can think of from TV to radio to animation and, of course, comics.

September 16th should become some kind of comic national holiday because it’s the birthday of both Mike Mignola and Kurt Busiek, and as far as making quality comics goes, that is one heck of a dynamic duo.

In celebration, we’ve compiled a collection of some of Ross’ best covers to showcase how the world of Astro City has changed over the years.
