Marvel are killing it with its licensed Star Wars title but even going back as far as the '70s, the publisher has always really excelled when it came to comics adaptations of the cinematic releases. Next month, Jody Houser, Emilio Laiso and Oscar Bazaldua bring Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to comics with an official adaptation that includes brand new story content originally cut from the finished film.
Mother Panic, by Jody Houser and Tommy Lee Edwards, is about a new character who fights criminals as a high-tech masked vigilante in Gotham City. She wears a cape and a helmet with pointed ears, but her outfit is white, and she's clearly unaffiliated with Batman and his allies. In fact, when the premise was initially revealed, nobody was really sure if this was the Gotham of DC's Batman books, or a whole different take on that world.
However, it's been set-up since the first issue that the Bat-Family have become aware of Mother Panic's activities. And in this third issue, she and Batwoman come face to face, leading to a fight and some weird angry flirting.
Every month, Comixology adds more titles to its burgeoning all-you-can-eat subscription service Comixology Unlimited, which allows readers access to a virtual library of comics for a flat monthly fee. February’s update goes live today, and the service is set to be bolstered by a new wave of awesome comics for you to peruse, including Danger Girl, Harbinger Wars and Lady Snowblood.
Faith's got a lot of problems these days. That shouldn't be too surprising considering that we're barreling towards April and the launch of "Faithless," a new story that reunites all of her arch-villains into a super-team dedicated to her destruction, but before we get to that, she's going to have to get through some other horrors. And by that, I mean that she's had a dose of a freaky ghost.
That's only part of the problem, though. When the literal spectres of her past start to haunt her, Faith begins to doubt her own place in the world. Check out a preview of next week's issue below and see if maybe --- just maybe --- this might connect to the Faith Revenge Squad's impending debut!
If you already read Faith, then you've already seen Valiant's premiere heroine fighting off some of the biggest threats that the universe can throw at her: An invasion from the planet-conquering Vine, a demon int he form of a housecat, and even an actor who decided that being a supervillain was far more fun than playing one. But the good news is that Faith has only ever had to face them one at a time. Until now.
Jody Houser, Joe Eisma, and Marguerite Sauvage are teaming up the villains in "The Faithless," a new storyline debuting in April that finds Faith Herbert facing off with a gang of bad guys that all want revenge.
One of the most exciting, visceral and engaging films of last year was Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Prequel which opened up the vast franchise in a number of ways we haven't seen before while remaining one of the most intimate and personal films in the Star Wars franchise. It was only a matter of time before Marvel adapted the film as part of their ever-popular line of Star Wars comics, and to do so the publisher has tapped Jody Houser and Emilio Laiso for a miniseries which will expand upon the events of the film.
Gerard Way's pop-up imprint Young Animal has only been alive for a couple of months but it's already proved to be one of the most exciting and innovative platforms in superhero comics in recent memory. Way as a creator has always been one to wear his influences on his sleeves, so it's not too surprising that as part of Young Animal's presence at November's NC Comicon, the imprint will host a film festival with picks curated by its creators.
Every month, comic publishers release their solicitation announcements to provide information to readers and retailers on comics that are coming out in three months’ time, but there’s so much information dropped at once that a lot can slip through the cracks.
This month in DC's January solicitations, we've got some surprising guest stars, some surprising guest artists, and the debut of one of the most ambitious books DC has published in a decade.
Mother Panic #1, by Jody Houser and Tommy Lee Edwards, tells the story of an idle Gotham City millionaire who dons a costume to fight crime, but this hero is like nobody we've seen before, if she even is a hero at all! Check out a preview.
Some people say that politics and politicians have no place in comics, but that's just not true. Captain America Comics #1 saw the hero punching out Adolf Hitler on the front cover; FDR was in an issue of Detective Comics two full issues before Batman debuted; and this November, Valiant's premiere female superhero teams up with presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in Faith #5.
