Every month, comic publishers release their solicitation announcements to provide information to readers and retailers on comics that are coming out in three months’ time, but there’s so much information dropped at once that a lot can slip through the cracks.
This month in Marvel's May solicitations there's costume drama for Daredevil and some shocking returns, but a lot of comics just don't seem to be coming back, with little or no notice from Marvel.
While there have been many attempts to adapt the world of WWE, no-one has tried to fill in the gaps between weekly episodes of Raw and SmackDown, a gap in the market now filled by Dennis Hopeless and Serg Acuña's new WWE title at Boom Studios. With the first issue of the ongoing on sale today, ComicsAlliance chatted with Hopeless about adapting wrestling into comics, finding his place in established continuity and his relationship with WWE corporate.
ResurrXion reveal week continues with the news that Jean Grey, the first solo comic for the teenage X-Man once known as Marvel Girl, will come to us next spring from the creative team of writer Dennis Hopeless and artist Victor Ibañez.
Ahead of the launch of Boom Studios' officially licensed WWE comic, the publisher has released a jam-packed one-shot titled WWE: Then Now Forever, which features a story about the final days of The Shield by Dennis Hopeless and Dan Mora, and a ton of bonus content featuring the likes of The New Day, Sasha Banks and... Tugboat?!
It's a very strange comic, but for fans of wrestling it shows a love of the sport that makes it a fun, authentic read.
The recently released trailer for Logan — Hugh Jackman's final outing as Wolverine — has fans hopeful it could be the best in what can generously be referred to as a patchy trilogy of solo films for the character. The central focus for the new trailer is the young girl left in Logan's care by Professor X, who it was revealed will be called "Laura" confirming her as at least analogous to Laura Kinney, the X-Man formerly known as X-23 and currently starring as the new Wolverine in All-New Wolverine.
Laura first appeared in the animated series X-Men Evolution before making the leap to the comics as Wolverine discovered the existence of his teenage female clone. Laura has been a huge part of Marvel Comics for over twelve years now, and there's a lot of continuity packed in there, but we've picked out the five best comics to help familiarize yourself with the character.
We here at ComicsAlliance have been waiting eagerly more information about Boom Studios upcoming WWE comic, and with New York Comic Con just a week away, more information is trickling in. Next year will see the release of an ongoing titled WWE, starring all your favorite superstars, with the first arc centered on Seth Rollins' return from injury, as told by Dennis Hopeless and Eduard Petrovich.
For wrestling fans, Seth Rollins' betrayal of his brothers in The Shield is still a very sore and open wound two years on, and Boom Studios intends to pour salt in that wound with its first official release under the WWE license. Arriving in October, WWE: Then. Now. Forever. #1 by Dennis Hopeless, Dan Mora and Daniel Bayliss digs into the background of The Shield's break-up.
Spider-Women, the multi-part crossover between Spider-Woman, Silk and Spider-Gwen has been something to look forward to almost every new comic book day for the past month or so, as Silk and Spider-Woman find themselves stranded on Spider-Gwen's Earth. With the conclusion mere weeks away, Marvel has provided us with an unlettered preview of Spider-Women Omega #1 by Dennis Hopeless, Robbie Thompson, Jason Latour and Nico Leon to prepare you for the finale.
The three Spider-Women who all somehow have solo titles right now are having their inevitable crossover, and it all starts in Spider-Women Alpha #1. This book leads into an eight-part crossover between Spider-Woman, Spider-Gwen, and Silk. The crossover is written by Jason Latour, Dennis Hopeless and Robbie Thompson, with art by Vanesa Del Rey, Bengal, Javier Rodriguez, and Tana Ford. Thompson and Del Rey are handling this first chapter.
All-New X-Men has quickly proven itself to be a fan-favorite title within the X-Books since it started last year, with Dennis Hopeless, Mark Bagley, Nolan Woodard and Cory Petit bringing together a team of young teen characters to valiantly surge forward through a world that hates and fears them. Despite having everything stacked against them, the cast have struck home with readers due to their determination to fight back and proudly stand up for who they are... and not what the world thinks they might be.
Although characters like X-23, Beast, Cyclops, Iceman, Idie, and Angel all stand poised in the dark shadows of their past and possible futures, the series stands out as a more purely entertaining and character-driven series than anything else. It's fun, and a lot of that fun is down to the immediate creative synergy between Bagley and Hopeless. ComicsAlliance caught up with Hopeless to get a closer look at the unruly team of teen heroes he's assembled, and to get a glimpse into what awaits the characters over the next few months.
