‘Batman ’66′ Writer Jeff Parker And Artist Colleen Coover: The ComicsAlliance Interview, Part Two

Batman '66 by Jeff Parker and Colleen Coover

We are currently living in the middle of a renaissance of interest in the 1966 Batman TV show. With licensing deals that have taken decades to work out falling into place, we've got action figures, clothes, and DVDs are finally on the way, and at the leading edge of it all is DC's digital-first Batman '66 comic, written by Jeff Parker with art by Jonathan Case, Ty Templeton, Joe Quinones, Sandy Jarrell, Ruben Procopio and Colleen Coover.

This week, the first hardcover collection of the series is out in print, and to mark the occasion, I sat down at Portland, Oregon's Periscope Studio to talk to Parker (and special guest Colleen Coover) about their work on the series. Today, in the second half of the interview, we discussed Parker and Coover's attitudes towards the multiple Catwomen,

Batman '66, by Jeff Parker and Jonathan Case

We are currently living in the middle of a renaissance of interest in the 1966 Batman TV show.

In the first half of the interview, we'll discuss the competitive relationship between Batman and his villains, the addition of big stunts to the show, and why Parker doesn't think it's necessary to be a fan to write a good comic.

Finn, Jake And The Ice King Plot A Heist In ‘Adventure Time: The Flip Side’ #2 [Preview]

Adventure Time: The Flip Side #2, Boom! Studios

One of the cool things about Adventure Time is that it lends itself really well to hopping in and out of different genres with every adventure. Sure, it's skewed pretty heavily towards dungeon-crawling action, but over the past few years, we've seen romances, crime stories, locked room mysteries, and even supernatural horror. And now, we're getting to see Finn and Jake plot a heist -- and since they're heisting a princess, why not recruit the Ice King as an expert advisor?

That's what's going down in the pages of Adventure Time: The Flip Side #2, from the team of Paul Tobin, Colleen Coover and Wook Jin Clark! Check out the first few pages, along with a whole dang bunch of variant covers, below!

‘Adventure Time Flip Side’ #1 Coming In January By Paul Tobin, Colleen Coover And Wook Jin Clark

Adventure Time The Flip Side Main
Boom! Studios

This January Boom! Studio is promising a comic where "The 'Freaky Friday' trope is turned on its head with an Ooo-sized twist!" with the release of Adventure Time Flip Side #1, the first in body-swapping miniseries written by the Eisner Award-winning Bandette team of Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover. Illustrating interiors is Wook Jin Clark, the upcoming author of the tokusatsu-tinged Megagogo at Oni Press, with Ellen Alsop on Cover B, and more cover artists to be announced. The book's complete plot is still a relative mystery, but it should be interesting to see how Boom!'s clues pan out if they do indeed result in AT characters switching forms. Boom! has provided CA with a first-look at Alsop's cover for the upcoming mini, which you can scope out past the cut.

Colleen Coover Brings Yvonne Craig’s Batgirl to ‘Batman ’66′, One Of The Best Drawn Bat-Books In Years

Batman '66 Batgirl Colleen Coover Eartha Kitt Catwoman

It just was only last week that we got word that actress Yvonne Craig had signed a licensing agreement with DC Comics parent Warner Bros. to allow the production and sale of new merchandise and other products -- the first in literally decades -- based on her likeness as Batgirl, one of the most beloved figures from the great Batman television series of the 1960s. It would seem that preparations were well underway before the announcement, because today DC has confirmed the first appearance of Craig's Batgirl in the pages of its startlingly good comics series Batman '66. On sale this week, the story will be written by the book's ongoing writer Jeff Parker and feature artwork by ComicsAlliance favorite Colleen Coover, who joins cover artist Michael Allred and storytellers Jonathan Case, Joe Quinones and Ty Templeton in making Batman '66 one of the very best looking Bat-books DC has published in years.

The Complete Jack Kirby Character Sketchbook (Summer 2013)

Untitled-1

 

For the past few years, I've been taking a sketchbook to conventions across the country and getting pieces of art with a single theme: Characters created or co-created by the King of Comics, Jack Kirby. After 52 sketches, you'd think I'd be running out of characters, but with only a couple repeats, it's still going strong. Today, in honor of Kirby's 96th birthday, I'm putting all the sketches in one place to show some of the best artists working in comics celebrating Kirby's lasting legacy as a creator!

Best Art Ever (This Week) – Superman 75th Anniversary Edition

untitled-1-1371231931

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. In honor of this year's 75th anniversary of the first appearance of Superman and this weekend's release of Man of Steel, we present for the second time a compilation of some of the coolest portraits of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's brilliant creation that we've highlighted in this feature over the last few years. We know it's cheating but we didn't count on going away for a month and then coming back in the middle of a big media event. All-new next week evermore.

The Charles Xavier Memorial Awards: ComicsAlliance’s Best Comics of 2012, Part 2

02charlesxavier

We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much. The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon. It was a busy a
