BestDCcovers2016featured

What may go down as one of the worst years in recent memory is slowly crawling to a close, and while we wish it good riddance and hope against hope that 2017 will be an improvement, there is some small solace in looking back over the year that's passed and figuring out what stuff from it was the best. That's right, it's "Best of..." list time, and today we're taking a look at the Best DC Covers of 2016.

Get Ready For Frankenstein Jr. In ‘Future Quest’ #6 [Exclusive Preview]

Future Quest #6, DC Comics

Future Quest is a comic that gets things done. In the five months that it's been a part of DC's monumentally fascinating Hanna-Barbera relaunch, it's offered a plot that unites virtually all of H-B's classic adventure cartoons in a single story, the debut of a new version of Mightor, a fourth member of the Impossibles, and, perhaps most importantly, Birdman shouting "Birrrrrrrrrdmaaaaaan!" Now, though, we're finally getting something that I've been waiting for since this whole series started.

No, not the dramatic return of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids, but something almost as good. When Future Quest #6 hits shelves next week, Jeff Parker and "Doc" Shaner are finally bringing us... Frankenstein Jr. Check out an exclusive preview!

Cast Party: Who Should Star in a ‘Flash Gordon’ Movie? [Sci-Fi Week]

ElleCollins_CastParty

Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist.

To kick off Sci-Fi Week, I’m looking at a new spin on a classic: Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon. But to keep this version fresh and different from the classic 1980 film, I'm not adapting the original comic, but rather the 2014 Dynamite Comics series by Jeff Parker and Doc Shaner.

Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist.

This week, I'm looking at one of my favorite current comics, Future Quest, written by Jeff Parker with art by Doc Shaner and a number of guest artists. If you don't already know, Future Quest is a timespace-spanning epic that unites characters from a wide variety of classic Hanna-Barbera adventure cartoons, including Jonny Quest, Birdman, Space Ghost, and many more.

Masked Robots and Super-Cavemen: Jeff Parker Talks ‘Future Quest’ [Interview]

quest_mightor

Future Quest has been one of the most fun comics of 2016 so far, re-introducing the classic Hanna-Barbera adventure characters and drawing them into one epic story as they battle an immense extra-dimensional monster known as Omnicron.

Future Quest #4 out this Wednesday, August 31, features the introduction of Mightor by series writer Jeff Parker and artist Evan "Doc" Shaner, as well as Frankenstein Jr. courtesy of guest artist Ron Randall. ComicsAlliance sat down with Parker to talk about time/space weirdness, the challenges of fleshing out kids' cartoon characters, and why a robot would wear a mask.

Space Ghost Is Going To Be Your Batman: Jeff Parker And Doc Shaner On ‘Future Quest’ [Interview]

Future Quest cover by Doc Shaner

DC's upcoming Hanna-Barbera line has already grabbed plenty of interest with its offbeat takes on classics like Scooby Doo and Wacky Races, but for a lot of readers, the most hotly anticipated title is the one that has the closest connection to its cartoon roots. In Future Quest, Jeff Parker and Evan "Doc" Shaner, the team behind last year's Convergence: Shazam miniseries, are reuniting for a story big enough to require virtually all of the Hanna-Barbera adventure characters.

On the eve of the book's launch this week, ComicsAlliance spoke to Parker and Shaner about the origins of the project, the characters they learned to love, and why they wanted to give Birdman something he'd never had before: a personality.

DC Unveils New Hanna-Barbera Variant Covers From Adams, Sienkiewicz And More

Hanna-Barbera-Header

DC Comics’ upcoming Hanna-Barbera line of comics is one of the boldest decisions Warner Bros has made with those properties in a long time, and DC seem committed to treating the individual series as just as important as its main line of superhero books. With veteran creators like Keith Giffen on the books, DC is throwing its full weight behind the new line, and has unveiled new variant covers for Scooby Apocalypse and Future Quest by superstar artists like Steve Rude, Neal Adams and Bill Sienkiewicz.

DC Announces A Slate Of New Hanna-Barbera Titles, Including ‘Scooby-Doo Apocalypse’ And Parker And Shaner’s ‘Space Ghost’

Scooby-Doo Apocalypse

Listen, I gotta tell you about this dream I had last night. It was so weird 00- DC comics had launched a line of comics based on Hanna-Barbera cartoons, but they were doing these completely bonkers takes on all of them. Like, Scooby-Doo was set in the apocalypse and Scooby had a techno-monocle that allowed him to communicate through emojis, and Wacky Races was mashed up with Mad Max: Fury Road, and they even got one of the designers from the movie for it, and there was a big crossover with Space Ghost and Jonny Quest. And the weirdest thing of all was that the Flintstones were just the Flintstones, but drawn by Amanda Conner. Bizarre, right?

Wait a second... I'm just catching up on the news, and --- holy cats. It wasn't a dream. DC Comics is actually doing a Hanna-Barbera line with post-apocalyptic Wacky Races and emoji-monocle Scooby-Doo. This is actually happening.

Steve Rude Covers ‘The Shield’ #2, And It’s Unsurprisingly Awesome [Preview]

The Shield #2, Dark Circle

When Archie's Dark Circle imprint relaunched The Shield back in October, it did it with a pretty interesting premise. Victoria Adams is the Shield, and in a twist playing off the Shield's status as the first "patriotic" hero in comics, her career fighting for the United States of America goes all the way back to the Revolutionary War. Unfortunately, she's got a touch of the amnesia, and is being hunted by her enemies.

But aside from the story, it also brought a great new design for the character, and when the second issue finally drops on February 17, some of our all-time favorite artists are going to be taking a shot at it, including "The Dude" Steve Rude and Evan "Doc" Shaner, along with the nicknameless Wilfredo Torres and David Williams. Check it out right here, along with a preview!
