The best superhero film ever made isn't The Dark Knight. It's not the 1978 Superman. It's not even Spider-Man 2. No, the best superhero movie is 2008's Justice League: The New Frontier.
Now, you might be asking, how does a 75-minute, direct-to-video animated film beat out those other films, which are widely adored and were helmed by some of the most acclaimed directors working today? The answer is, none of those films were built around the work of the great Darwyn Cooke, who passed away this past weekend from cancer.
Let’s go ahead and get two things out of the way immediately. First, while the fan art I’ve collected for you here is all great, it goes without saying (but I’m going to say it anyway) that this is only a small portion of all the incredible Venture Bros. fan art that’s floating around out there in the wild of the internet. So if I left some of your favorites out, it just means I didn’t come across it or had to leave it out for one reason or another.
Second, if you’re familiar at all with the Venture Bros. then you probably have a very good idea why some characters and a lot of the fan art that’s out there for this show couldn’t be featured. You know who and what I’m talking about. (Sorry, Molotov.) Honestly, even some of the tamer stuff I could include is already pushing it. Even though it honors many of the tropes and trappings of some our favorite kid-friendly cartoons and characters, the Venture Bros. has always been a show for the grown-ups that grew up on those kid-friendly cartoons. Or, you know, teenagers and young adults who are kinda familiar with them thanks to Cartoon Network.
Since it’s debut on Cartoon Network in 2010 (or as a six minute pilot on the Nicktoons network in 2007, if you want to get really “um, actually” about it), Adventure Time with Finn and Jake has shown us just how much fun a human boy and his talking, shapeshifting dog can have.
The show's mix of Dungeons & Dragons style fantasy escapades, bizarre surrealism, and low-key, dialogue-driven comedy made it an immediate hit with viewers of all ages. It goes without saying that the show's inseparable best friends go on adventures (at a specific time that has been set aside for it, if the title is to be believed), but the show has proven to be about so much more than just adventure.
To help any con-going readers with their convention plans, ComicsAlliance has put together this handy list of panels we recommend. Some are panels we think sound cool and some are panels where you can see CA contributors! You may not be able to experience everything (and probably not everything on this list!), but here's what we think are the best panels to attend on the final day, Sunday, July 12th!
In the overwhelmingly male comic book industry, it has been a challenge for some editors and readers to see the ever growing number of talented women currently trying to make a name for themselves. With that in mind, ComicsAlliance offers Hire This Woman, a recurring feature designed for comics readers as well as editors and other professionals, where we shine the spotlight on a female comics pro on the ascendance. Some of these women will be at the very beginning of their careers, while others will be more experienced but not yet “household names.”
Animator and cartoonist Paige Warren is passionate about telling illustrated stories and has extensive training and education in her field. You may best know her work from her webcomics Busty Girl Comics -- "comics about the perks and problems of having boobs" -- and AHTspace -- pronounced like a New Englander saying "art space" and telling the story of artists in a shared studio.
Daniel Bressette lives in a very strange world, a world populated by beasts made from bits of puppies and bunny rabbits, where warlord pigs rule with a bacon fist and celestial Pokémon clutter the cosmos. It's also filled with tons of animations sure to add a smile to your weekend: Workaholics' Blake riding a dragon, an evening at home with the Ninja Turtles, Finn and Jake gone Mega Man, and some truly adorable demons.
Tony Stark thrusts off on his third solo live-action adventure in just a few short weeks, when Iron Man 3 bursts into theaters on May 3. But that's not the only place you can see ol' Shellhead in motion this year...
Animation: If you didn't catch it on Reddit awhile back, there's never a bad time to scope out this awesome King of the Hill animator's guide of "Do's and Dont's." Toys: S.H.
