Each week, ComicsAlliance’s Chris Sims and Matt Wilson host the War Rocket Ajax podcast, their online audio venue for interviews with comics creators, reviews of the books of the week, and whatever else they want to talk about. ComicsAlliance is offering clips of the comics-specific segments of the show several days before the full podcast goes up at WarRocketAjax.com on Mondays.

This week, it’s Chris is back from Emerald City and he's talking to Matt about three of the big comic releases of the week: Detective Comics #30 by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato, Dead Letters #1 by Christopher Sebela and Chris Visions, and Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #200 by Brian Michael Bendis, David Marquez and a bunch of other artists.

After several attempts to get a TV show based on Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's comic series Powers off the ground at FX, Sony Pictures TV has announced it will launch the show on the PlayStation video game console.

There's no official, set date for when the series will start. It also isn't clear whether it will follow the Netflix model of all the season's episodes going up at once, or if the new series will at all resemble the pilot on which FX passed in 2012. The season will reportedly be 10 episodes.

Massive Artist Lineup For ‘All-New X-Men’ #25: Timm, Hipp, Young, Adams, Cho & More

Untitled-2

Getting all the way to issue #25 without a relaunch is a legitimate accomplishment for a Marvel Comics series in 2014, so the publisher and writer Brian Michael Bendis are doing it up big for next month's All-New X-Men #25, with a more than formidable list of contributing artists.

All-New X-Men: Should They Stay Or Should They Go?

Untitled-1

When Marvel announced the concept of All-New X-Men, we were sceptical. A comic book about the original teenage X-Men in the present-day Marvel Universe felt like a crazy idea for a miniseries, much less an ongoing. Yet Brian Michael Bendis and Stuart Immonen won us over; All-New X-Men is solid entertainment, earning a spot in ComicsAlliance's list of the Best Comic Books of 2013.

And yet, 15 months and 24 issues later, Marvel Girl, Beast, Iceman, Cyclops and Angel are still with us, and we're still kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop. Is this really the new status quo? Is it really sustainable to have two different versions of so many major characters rocking around the Marvel Universe?

‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Star Rocket Raccoon Getting New Solo Series By Skottie Young

Rocket Raccoon Skottie Young
Marvel Comics

After five years of working on Marvel's adaptations of Frank L. Baum's Oz books, Skottie Young is jumping back into the Marvel Universe feet-first with a new series about a character who's primed to become a breakout movie star, Rocket Raccoon.

Young has been working on the series for months now, so he isn't basing his version of the character on the one that will be appearing in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie coming to theaters in August. But Young says the version in his comic, the first issue of which will hit stands July 2, is pretty well in line with the Rocket Raccoon people have seen in the trailer.

Marvel To Relaunch The Ultimate Universe With Three New Series From Bendis, Marquez, Fialkov, Fiffe And More

Ultimate Marvel Now

It's been fourteen years since Marvel launched its Ultimate line of comics, with the goal of establishing a universe in which its characters were younger and modern, and where many of the continuity restrictions of the established Marvel line didn't apply. Over that time, many changes have been made and several significant characters have died -- most notably Peter Parker, who was replaced in the role of Spider-Man by young hero Miles Morales.

Now, the Ultimate line will once again embrace change. Following the conclusion of the current line-wide Cataclysm event -- featuring the heroes of that universe facing off against Galactus -- Marvel has announced Ultimate Marvel NOW, an initiative that will see a new direction and new titles from creators Brian Michael Bendis, David Marquez, Joshua Hale Fialkov, Michel Fiffe and more.

‘Battle Report of the Atom’: ComicsAlliance Examines Marvel’s Big X-Men Event

CA_BOTA

Marvel's X-Men comics recently celebrated their 50th anniversary with Battle of the Atom, a ten-part crossover between its four main X-Men titles that brought together mutant teams from the past, present and possible future -- and combined the talents of writers Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron and Brian Wood and artists Frank Cho, Stuart Immonen, Chris Bachalo and David Lopez.

The X-Men have had their share of epic tales over the past fifty years, including the Dark Phoenix Saga, Inferno, Age of Apocalypse and Avengers vs X-Men. So how did the Battle of the Atom stack up against the franchise's history, and where does it leave the characters as they head into the next fifty years? ComicsAlliance splits the atom. Spoilers follow.

Best Art Ever (This Week) – CHVRCHES, RoboCop, Corto Maltese, Star Wars & More

Untitled-2

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.

‘X-Men: Battle of the Atom’ #1 Is The Most X-Men Of Comics [Advance Review]

BattleoftheAtom1

It'd be selling Brian Michael Bendis and Frank Cho's X-Men: Battle of the Atom #1 short to say they seem to have made a checklist of all the things a big X-Men event is supposed to do and then included them all, but... well, it really does seem that way.

There's a team from the past. There's a team from the future. There's melodrama. There are characters in mortal danger. There are Sentinels. There are tons of nods to past X-Men stories. The only thing that's missing is a full-on alternate reality. So far, anyway.
