R.L. Stine And German Peralta Rebuild A Monstrosity In ‘Man-Thing’ #1 [Preview]

Man-Thing_1_Featured

Ted Sallis was trying to recreate the super-soldier, but he ended up transformed into a speechless monster who wanders the swamp. That's the origin of Man-Thing, but it's retold in this preview of Man-Thing #1 with a new pace and attitude, courtesy of legendary young adult horror novelist R.L. Stine and artist German Peralta. This is clearly a flashback, because the synopsis lets us know that the main story takes place in the present, with Man-Thing having regained the power of speech.

Sith Versus Rathtars In ‘Star Wars: Darth Maul’ #1 [Preview]

Darth_Maul_1_Featured

We always hoped that Darth Maul was more than just a pretty face. He was introduced way back in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, where he looked cool and was great at fighting but barely had lines, displayed little personality, and (seemingly) died at the end. He's appeared since in various tie-in stories and animated episodes, but now he's getting a spotlight like never before in a new Marvel comic --- and Marvel has provided a first look at issue #1.

When Marvel first launched its most recent line of Star Wars comics, it was obvious it would be big business for the publisher, but few would have correctly guessed that an original character not from the films would prove so popular as to get their own ongoing series. However implausible years ago, this December sees the launch of Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #1 by Kieron Gillen and Kev Walker, and Marvel have provided us with a first look at the first issue.

Cyclops Joins The Team In ‘Champions’ #2 [Preview]

Champions_2_Featured

Champions #2, by Mark Waid and Humberto Ramos, features Cyclops joining a team that doesn't start with "X" for the first time ever. To be clear, this is the young Cyclops who came to the present in All-New X-Men, not the older Cyclops who as far as we know is dead. But either way, Scott Summers is a character inseparable from the X-Men, and now he's going to be a Champion instead.

Obi-Wan and Anakin Limited Series Promises Pre-Teen Prequel Padawan Action [Preview]

Marvel
Marvel

Remember how the prequel trilogy jumped over those awkward pre-teen years of Anakin Skywalker's life after Episode I, and went straight to all the teen angst you could handle in Episode II? Well you'll soon be able to enjoy all those formative years you missed with Obi-Wan and Anakin, a new limited series from Marvel's Star Wars universe.

Written by Charles Soule and drawn by Marco Checchetto, both fresh off Star Wars stints on Land and Shattered Empire respectively, Obi-Wan and Anakin will follow the newly minted Jedi master and his padawan as they grow into their new roles, exploring the limits of patience a teacher can have with a new apprentice. Can you imagine being a twenty-something whose closest friend just died and then being put in charge of a bucket of raging hormones who happens to be one of the most powerful space wizards in the galaxy? I was a nightmare at that age, and I didn't even have a lightsaber.

Best Art Ever (This Week) – 06.28.13

Best Art Ever 06.28.13

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images 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, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.
