We're very quickly heading into a golden age of comic book television adaptations, not only with superhero shows such as Iron Fist (teased at a panel on Thursday) and Defenders (likewise), but with hit adaptations of indie properties like The Walking Dead and Preacher. Production companies are quickly learning that indie comics are a rich vein of longform storytelling just waiting to be tapped, and there's now a scramble to find the next hit.
Following on from the announcement that Rick Remender and Wes Craig's Deadly Class was heading to TV under Joe and Anthony Russo, another fan-favorite Image Comics series is heading to TV; Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott's Black Magick.
Wonder Woman #2 is the first chapter of "Year One" by Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott, with colors Romulo Fajardo Jr. The whole issue alternates between scenes of a young Diana living on Themyscira and a young Steve Trevor in the military, leading up to the famous moment when they meet. But we learn a lot more about their lives before we get there, and that's led to a particularly strong fan reaction to Diana's life among the Amazons.
With so many great comics series to read, it can be difficult remembering what happened in a previous issue as we head into the current one. The Recap Page is here to help readers recall what they need to know as an important new issue looms!
This week, Lazarus makes its long-awaited return with Lazarus #22, as Greg Rucka and Michael Lark take us back to their all-too-plausible future dystopia of warring families, extreme class disparity and immortal assassins. Every piece on the game board is poised to get blown straight off, and a discovery’s been made that may change Forever Carlyle’s life for good…
Captain America: Civil War is in cinemas now, and everyone’s raving about its impressive set-pieces, complex themes and snappy banter. Marvel Studios and the Russo Brothers not only managed to make possibly the best Captain America film (and the best Avengers film) so far, but they told an awesome, tightly-plotted story that never felt bloated despite the number of characters demanding the spotlight.
The Captain America franchise has always skewed somewhat more toward espionage thrillers than your average superhero series, similar in tone to the Jason Bourne series or the modern day James Bond films. If you loved Civil War and want to try some comics in a similar vein --- but you’ve already read Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting’s Captain America run --- we’ve compiled a list of five of the best independent comics to try next.
Greg Rucka's return to Wonder Woman was one of the standout announcements from DC's Wondercon panel in March, and with art by Liam Sharp and Nicola Scott it's easily one of the most anticipated books of the new relaunch. In honor of Sharp's birthday yesterday, DC Comics unveiled new preview pages from Wonder Woman: Rebirth #1.
Greg Rucka and Michael Lark's Lazarus has been one of the most exciting and compelling stories on the stands since its debut in 2013. Set in a future where nations have been dissolved and rebuilt as a world ruled over by fifteen families, the story follows Forever Carlyle, who serves as her family's Lazarus --- a highly trained soldier who can't be permanently killed, no matter how hard her enemies try.
Now, with major changes set to come for the book when it returns --- and with the impending release of the first Lazarus Sourcebook next week --- ComicsAlliance spoke to Rucka and Lark about the process of building their world, the extremes they're going to in order to tell their story, and what we can expect when the next arc, "Cull," begins in June.
What a week! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to sit back and read some comics. The weekend is finally here, and the world can relax and rest once more — but the comics industry has been busy too, you know, and the last seven days have seen a flurry of comics-based news and announcements fly past at high speed.
ComicsAlliance has got your back, though: when it comes to comics, we never slow down, so here’s a look back and just what’s been going on. New comics, new stories, new podcasts, new art being made — it’s all part of the ComicsAlliance Weekender!
With mere minutes on the official countdown clock to the DC: Rebirth livestream, writer Marguerite Bennett tweeted an announcement, but it wasn't exactly the announcement we were anticipating from her today: She's launching a Patreon.
Good for Bennett, that she's launching a Patreon. It's a great way to stay funded as a creator of any kind these days. I use one myself, to help fund my podcast. But when I saw her tweet, I immediately said to my co-workers "Bennett's not going to be announced as the writer of Wonder Woman."
DC Comics hosted a special livestream event at WonderCon in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon to unveil the creative teams behind its DC Rebirth event, which relaunches the entire DC Universe line with new issue #1s and multiple double-shipping titles. The relaunch will set the future course of DC Comics at a time when fans are wondering whether the company will embrace a new and diversifying audience or double down on serving a shrinking core audience.
The event was introduced by DC All Access host Tiffany Smith, with DC co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio and chief creative officer and Rebirth chief architect Geoff Johns introducing and interviewing the creative teams as they joined them on stage at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
We're less than a week away from the return of Netflix's Daredevil series, and this time, The Punisher and Elektra are coming along for the ride. To celebrate this, Comixology has a fortnight long sale on some of the best Daredevil, Punisher and Elektra stories in recent memory so you can catch up on the comics before the new series begins.
The sale includes the first volumes of classic Daredevil runs, including Frank Miller and Klaus Janson's legendary character defining work with the character from the eighties. Also by Miller and David Mazzucchelli is the seminal Daredevil: Born Again which was a major influence on the first season of the television series.
