Zack Snyder Called Into A Detroit Radio Show To Defend Aquaman’s Honor

2734033-aquaman

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder apparently has a superpower: The ability to know when radio DJs are talking smack about Aquaman.

Last week, after the on-air personalities on Detroit's sports-talk radio station The Ticket spoke somewhat disparagingly about the character, who will reportedly be played by Jason Momoa in the upcoming Batman V Superman, Snyder called in to school them about Aquaman's "cool abilities."

Jim Rugg’s Ballpoint Pen Aquaman Drawings Are… Beautiful

Untitled-2

We've talked about Jim Rugg and his incredible ballpoint pen drawings before here at ComicsAlliance, but that dude just keeps doing more and more amazing things. They'd be amazing under any circumstances, but that he's doing them with regular old office supplies, usually on lined notebook paper? It's pretty impressive.

Now, the Street Angel creator has has turned his attention to the ocean for a series of pieces focused on DC's adventurous Aquaman, just hanging out with whales, fish and other denizens of the deep.

Radioactive Blackness And Anglo-Saxon Aliens: Achieving Superhero Diversity Through Race-Changing

aquafacehex

Changing the racial identity of characters has become a contentious issue amongst fans of superhero comics and their adaptations in other media. The awful practices of casting white actors to play people of color, or of turning previously non-white characters into white characters, is all too common in movie adaptations of books, cartoons, TV shows, or even real life stories -- but rather surprisingly, superhero comics and their adaptations have mostly avoided this problem.

In comics, the controversy takes a different direction. Several white characters have become non-white, mostly in movies, and sometimes in reboots. Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm in the new Fantastic Four; Helena Bertinelli aka the Huntress in the New 52; Nick Fury in the Ultimate Comics line and on screen. These are changes that agitate some readers -- but realistically, the changes don't go far enough. Superhero comics have a cultural bias towards white characters that has everything to do with their institutional history and nothing to do with what makes sense to the stories.

Michael Lombardi’s Superhero Pin-Ups Want You To Be More Like Aquaman [Art]

Art by Michael Lombardi, http://michaellombardi.tumblr.com

I have seen a lot of great art from a lot of great artists over the years, but I'm pretty sure that Michael Lombardi was the first to add a caption encouraging people to be more like Aquaman. I mean, if anything, I tend to favor art that advises people to be as unlike Aquaman as humanly possible. I don't even own an orange shirt. That is how dedicated I am to this.

And yet, Lombardi's beautifully exaggerated figures have an appeal that's hard to deny, even when he's drawing the King of Atlantis -- and it helps that he's doing the awesome Brave and the Bold version, too. Check it out, along with other pieces featuring some of our favorite superheroes, below!

Shoes of Prey: Comics Alliance Designs Superhero Footwear Based on Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, Batwoman and More

Untitled-142

Fashion brand Shoes of Prey used its customizable design website to style some superhero-inspired heels and flats as examples of footwear that customers can tweak and purchase for themselves with the Shoes of Prey 3D Designer, which gives the wearer selection of colors, materials, and alter various detailing parameters such as heel height, toe and heel detailing.. Each pair of shoes is handmade to fit the customer's chosen aesthetics and run at least $100 per pair.

As a fan of both Shoes of Prey and comics, customer Mandy Kerr designed some heels and flats inspired by Batman, Iron Man, and more (seen in the grahguc below). Inspired by Kerr's excellent Robin-inspired oxfords, I utilized the Shoes of Prey 3D Designer to create a few of my own shoe designs, including flats and platformed wedges inspired by Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, Batwoman, and more.
