In the overwhelmingly male comic book industry, it has been a challenge for some editors and readers to see the ever growing number of talented women currently trying to make a name for themselves. With that in mind, ComicsAlliance offers Hire This Woman, a recurring feature designed for comics readers as well as editors and other professionals, where we shine the spotlight on a female comics pro on the ascendance. Some of these women will be at the very beginning of their careers, while others will be more experienced but not yet “household names.”
Christian Beranek has worked as a writer for years, including a stint at Disney creating comics. She wrote Dracula vs. King Arthur and is currently working on a number of projects including the webcomic Validation.
Hey, remember Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire from 2001? It's okay if you don't, since it didn't have Fox Robin Hood or someone singing about ice puns, which, for good or ill, tend to make for the most memorable Disney movies. What it did have, however, were concept designs by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, which have led to the movie becoming a cult favorite in recent years despite a poor initial showing at the box office.
With the Internet being what it is, these designs have of course found their way online, and they are predictably amazing. Check out a few of the best below, from Mignola's take on the characters, locations and creatures of Atlantis!
Fans of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars series have been looking for some closure, and now they're finally going to get it. The popular animated series will return for a sixth and final season, titled "The Lost Missions," after an agreement between Netflix and Lucasfilm/Disney. All 13 episodes of season six will be available on Netflix on March 7, as well as the the previous five seasons and the feature film.
It seemed like a foregone conclusion following Disney's $4.05 billion acquisition of Star Wars owners Lucasfilm last year, but Marvel and Dark Horse Comics made it official today: The Star Wars comics franchise will move next year from Dark Horse, which has had the license for 22 years, back to Marvel, which published the first Star Wars comics when the original movies were coming out in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
As Ric Flair always said, "Space Mountain may be the oldest ride in the park, but it still has the longest line."
Perhaps the Nature Boy's wisdom is why Disney has chosen the ride to be the basis for a trilogy of graphic novels written by Bryan Q. Miller and illustrated by Kelley Jones and Hi-Fi Design, the first of which will hit in May 6, 2014.
One of the questions people asked when Disney acquired Marvel back in 2009 was how Marvel's characters would be represented at the company's many, many theme parks. Now we have an idea.
The Iron Man Experience, a ride that promises enable guests on "take flight with Iron Man on an epic adventure," will open at Tomorrowland at Hong Kong Disneyland in late 2016, the DisneyParks Blog announced.
While Marvel characters are still gradually making their way into Disney themeparks, it seems that an unfinished Disney attraction is spinning off into a 5-issue series via Marvel's new Disney Kingdom's imprint - and it's just the first of potentially many to make the jump. Inside the Magic reports that Seekers of the Weird#1 by writer Brandon Seifert (Witch Doctor) and artist Karl Moline (Avengers Arena) will launch in January and tell a story inspired by Imagineer Rolly Crump's never built “Museum of the Weird” attraction that would've served as a kind of supernatural relic-filled add-on to The Haunted Mansion circa 1965.
Let's just take a moment to glory in the perfection that is Nathan Fillion outfitted with a maple leaf shield riding atop his mighty, dam-building steed. It's just one of many illustrative brainchildren of Mingjue Helen Chen, a visual development artist Walt Disney Animation Studios whose creations range from Adventure Time with Scrubs' Turk and J.D. to some particularly painterly takes on Lara Croft and Sailor Moon.
