Marie Severin was a woman in comics in an era when a woman in comics wasn't even considered a thing to be. She got her start as a colorist at EC Comics in 1949, and worked there until they were largely driven out of business by the Comics Code in 1955. Severin wouldn't return to comics until the '60s, where she found a new home at Marvel.
For this tribute gallery, I've focused on her pencilling work at Marvel. As a penciler, she's probably best remembered for working on Dr. Strange in Strange Tales, Incredible Hulk, and Namor the Sub-Mariner, but she drew fill-in issues and covers for many, many books.
There was a whole lot to take in from the first official Thor: Ragnarok photos, which debuted yesterday and revealed Cate Blanchett’s goth-y villain, Jeff Goldblum’s eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson’s warrior Valkyrie and, oh yeah, Thor’s super-short new haircut. Some big changes are afoot in the nine realms, and we’re not just talking about Thor’s makeover; director Taika Waititi has created a more colorful, more humorous return to Asgard, and after seeing those first photos, we’re sure you have lots of questions about the plot of Ragnarok.
Lego has never been at a shortage of simple and easy sets for its fans to build. Sure the more extravagant pieces get all the attention, but sometimes you just want a budget-friendly little set for your desk to show off your construction skills. This past San Diego Comic-Con saw Lego take that idea even farther, and offer small character building sets in the vein of Funko Pops called Lego Brickheadz.
Originally only available as two-packs exclusively at SDCC, the Lego Brickheadz are finally available for the rest of the collecting public. Featuring some of your favorite characters from the Marvel and DC universes, Lego Brickheadz might finally give Funko a run for its money in the emotionless pop culture figure arena.
The 1989 Avengers West Coast Annual featured an unusual short story by Mark Waid and then-newcomer Amanda Conner called "Rate The Hunks," in which Wasp and She-Hulk offered their expert assessment on the sex appeal of their male Avengers colleagues. Almost thirty years later, we've assembled our own experts to repeat the exercise, with an updated twist.
By the rate Hasbro is going, there won't be very many things left to reveal at Toy Fair this year. Already we've seen the Spider-Man: Homecoming teases in a variety of lines, but now we're also getting a look at what's to come from the Marvel Legends 12" figures. The 12" figures made their debut last year with Captain America and Iron Man setting the pace to tie into Captain America: Civil War. Spider-Man followed close behind, but now even more Avengers are about to join in on the fun. Oh, and Deadpool is here too.
Sometimes when you read a story, something sticks out at you. A page might feel weird, or a layout might seem odd and distracting. It could be that it's just a bad choice on the team's part in figuring out the approach to tell the story, or it could be an example like in the new Hulk book where it's very deliberately done for effect.
Mariko Tamaki and Nico Leon have a very specific visual style for the majority for the book. It's not that it's simple, but there's an obviousness to it. It looks like comics. Some panels overlap, but there's a standard structure that doesn't look too unusual. Everything works on columns and rows, and it's fairly regimented.
It all breaks apart in a scene with Jen in the lift.
The word of comics and the world of professional wrestling have one big thing in common: nothing is better than seeing two of your favorite characters duke it out in a highly anticipated battle royale. The MCU is no different: it’s exciting to think about our favorites finally getting the chance to team up, but what if they fight each other instead? Batman v. Superman was a little anticlimactic in that regard, but Captain America: Civil War really made it difficult to choose sides when half of the Avengers turned against the other half. Vin Diesel seems to think another battle between two very large team members might happen onscreen: Groot vs. Hulk.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
Superman is the best. Just the absolute best. And if you disagree, I'm so sorry for your wrongness, but we're not here to argue about how wrong you could potentially be, we're here to talk about Superman's best team-ups.
Jennifer Walters barely made it through Civil War II alive, and in Hulk #1 she's dealing with some lingering side effects. As the new ongoing series by Mariko Tamaki and Nico Leon begins, the former She-Hulk is trying to live a quiet, normal life. But as this first look preview reveals, rage is bubbling up inside her, and the monster lurking within her brain and body wants to get out.
