SyFy Adapting ‘Ronin,’ ‘Pax Romana,’ ‘Letter 44′ And ‘Clone’ For TV

SyFy Comic Book Adaptations 2014

This TV season is already overflowing with new TV shows based on comics, with Gotham, iZombie, Powers, The Flash, and more on the way, but SyFy announced this week that it's adding even more to the list.

Keeping in line with its return to science fiction and fantasy programming (though it's keeping its oddly spelled name, it seems), the network is launching a huge slate of new shows, including four based on comics: Ronin, Pax Romana, Letter 44 and Clone.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ #1 Brings Back The Quips, But Feels Like A ‘Superior’ Epilogue

The Amazing Spider-Man 1 Review
Marvel Comics

Dan Slott must have been saving up his jokes over the past 16 months or so.

The Amazing Spider-Man #1, the issue that officially reintroduces Peter Parker to the Marvel Universe after a lengthy absence during which his body was under the control of Doctor Octopus, is chock full of laugh lines that really hit. Slott, artist Humberto Ramos, inker Victor Olazaba and colorist Edgar Delgado get the tone just right, but I couldn't help but feel that the story itself was a bit lacking in forward momentum, as the lingering effects of Superior Spider-Man dominated the issue's lead story.

Welcome To The Ex-Men, Wolverine: The Unlikely Death Of Marvel’s Most Unkillable Character

Untitled-1

Wolverine, he dead. Almost. Soon. Soon. In a shock headline-grab, the folks at Marvel have announced that the big hand and the little hand have ticked all the way back around to "kill off a major character" o'clock, and the name they picked out of the hat this time was "James Howlett". And after asking around the office someone confirmed that they're pretty sure that's Wolverine. No, not Magneto. Not Rogue. 94% sure that's Wolverine.

So we come here today at ComicsAlliance not to praise Wolverine, but to promote his comic. But please note that this article contains spoilers for the forthcoming Marvel series Death of Wolverine, and the spoiler is that they kill Wolverine. Wolverine dies, you guys. No more Wolverine.

Wolverine’s Dead, Angela’s Asgardian, and Daredevil’s Mom: Marvel News From C2E2 2014

Untitled-2

Marvel went to C2E2 armed with a plethora of publishing announcements for the Chicago crowd, focusing largely on special projects like miniseries and some pretty cool-sounding Original Sin tie-ins, but with a couple auspicious new series as well. In an inspired bit of comic book casting, Our Love Is Real and Avengers A.I. writer Sam Humphries will write the The Legendary Star-Lord, a new series drawn by Paco Medina starring the Guardians of the Galaxy leader. In similarly agreeable news, fan favorite X-Men leader Storm will star in a new ongoing series, this one courtesy of Greg Pak and Victor Ibanez.

The Good Hulk: Lawyering And Superheroism in ‘She-Hulk’ #1

She-Hulk #1 Review

Lawyers are not heroes. I don't say that to be unkind; I'm sure there are valiant and principled people in the law as in most walks of life. Jennifer Walters, the eponymous star of the new She-Hulk ongoing series from writer Charles Soule and artist Javier Pulido, is one of those good people.

Yet as a profession, lawyers do not represent "good" the way that superheroes do. Soule, a practicing lawyer himself, clearly recognizes this; he even has one character state, "I am neither bad nor good. I am simply Legal." The muddy ethics of lawyering provide a very different set of challenges to a superhero used to punching out their problems.

Inhuman 1 cover
Marvel

Two weeks, two high-profile writer swaps on major new Marvel titles.

Last week, Marvel announced that Haden Blackman was taking over as the new writer of the forthcoming Elektra title, replacing writer Zeb Wells because of Wells' increased TV commitments. Now, the company has announced that Inhuman, one of the most-hyped titles coming out of the Inhumanity event, won't be staffed by the series' originally announced writer, Matt Fraction. Charles Soule will be taking it over. Series artist Joe Madureira will remain on the book.

Oni’s ‘Letter 44′ Press Kit Takes Us To Sci-Fi Space Camp

letter44presskit_main

We've been pretty intrigued by Charles Soule and artist Alberto Alburquerque's upcoming sci-fi drama Letter 44 since snagging a black and white variant of the first issue at SDCC this past summer, but it seems publisher Oni Press has plenty left to show us on the road to the book's October release. On top of sending CA a press kit complete with promo materials and a cryptic signed letter from the (fictional) President of the United States of America, they sent our senses sailing straight to space camp by including Astronaut ice cream.
