When I was writing a 1200-word attempt to define the proper length of Batman's ears earlier this week, I mentioned that comic book readers love details. It's true of every fandom, I suppose, whether it's memorizing sports statistics or listening for the differences between the demo and album versions of your favorite song, but with superhero comics, it tends to be a little different. These are, after all, stories that are meant to go on forever, where every story is meant to feel important to the ongoing narrative. Exploring and examining the details is one of the best ways to add significance, giving a deep and complicated history to every single element that makes up a character. Every now and then, though, I think we can all agree that it goes a little overboard.
I mean, it's been a few years since it happened, but I'm still not sure that we ever needed an origin story for Barry Allen's bowtie.
In October of 2014 at a Marvel event in Los Angeles, Kevin Feige and Marvel announced a November 2, 2018 for Inhumans, their latest superhero team. But a funny thing happens when you announce a movie’s release date four years in advance? Things change and life, uh, finds a way as Dr. Ian Malcolm would say. And so, Marvel has now pushed back Inhumans to an as-yet-undecided date to get out of the way of another Disney blockbuster: Indiana Jones 5.
Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
There've been a number of dolls and 3.75" Indiana Jones figures over the years, but this March the movie and sometime Marvel/Dark Horse comic book star will be getting the Figma treatment from Japanese toymaker Max Factory. Finally, Hasbro's 6" Star Wars Black figure can hang out a figure sporting a similar amount of Harrison Ford-ishness.
Artist and movie buff Justin Reed specializes in slightly caricatured, pop-culture-inspired group shots, and boy, can he paint the white Kryptonite out of Christopher Reeve getting a talking to from the disembodied head of Marlon Brando...
Lucasfilm's celebrated action/adventure hero, Indiana Jones, the forerunner of popular characters such as Lara Croft, will be making a triumphant return in 2008 with the yet-to-be-titled fourth installment of the Indiana Jones film series
