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.
While DC Comics has had a great 2016 largely thanks to its DC Rebirth initiative, the success of its updated Hanna-Barbera titles such as Future Quest and The Flintstones has been one of the most surprising hits of the year. Next year, DC is doubling down on its classic cartoon characters by teaming them up with some of the most iconic heroes in the DC Universe in a number of special annuals set for release in March.
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!
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.
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.
It's rare to see Dan Parent working outside of Archie Comics, where he's the most prominent writer/artist of the last two decades. However, DC has unveiled variant covers drawn by Parent for their four Hanna-Barbera reboot titles: Scooby Apocalypse #7, The Flintstones #4, Wacky Raceland #5, and Future Quest #6.
"I'm so excited to do these four Hanna- Barbera covers," Parent told ComicsAlliance. "As a lifelong fan, and fan of the new series of books, it was a dream come true!"
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.
