Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with over 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in comics in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
This week we're taking a look at James O'Barr's neo-Gothic revenge opus, The Crow!
We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

The Crow creator James O'Barr has come onboard as a consultant for Relativity Media's movie reboot of his 1990s comics series, Variety reports. Among his duties will be an appearance with director Javier Gutierrez at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
After almost two decades of keeping a relatively low profile in the comic industry, James O'Barris back with a vengeance (literally) in December, writing and drawing a new mini-series for IDW starring his most famous creation, The Crow...
IDW Publishing came prepared to Anaheim, California's WonderCon event last weekend, announcing several high profile comic book initiatives. Besides the previously discussed Womanthology ongoing series (of miniseries) and the full-length Rocketeer project by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee, IDW is developing a revival of James O'Barr's The Crow with creators John Shirley and Kevin Colden; brand new Judge Dredd stories as well as reprint archival material from 2000 AD; a return of the acclaimed The Cape by Joe Hill and Jason Ciaramella with art by Zach Howard and Nelson Daniel; new KISS comics written by Chris Ryall and Tom Waltz with art by Jamal Igle and Casey Maloney; a new collection of rare and unpublished Dave Stevens material; and (perhaps) final Locke & Key installment by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez; and new work by Ben McCool and Mike Costa.Whi...
