Cast Party: Who Should Star In A ‘Batman & Dracula: Red Rain’ Movie?

redrain_featured

Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist.

With Halloween drawing ever-closer, I really wanted to cast a movie about Dracula. And since I covered Marvel's Dracula last year, I thought it would be fun to do a DC Comics Dracula this time around. That led me to 1991's Batman & Dracula: Red Rain, a well-remembered Elseworlds graphic novel by Doug Moench and Kelley Jones, in which the Caped Crusader fights the Lord of the Vampires, and becomes a vampire himself along the way.

rr_featured

It won't be available till the middle of 2017, but the announcement of Mondo's Batman Red Rain statue still feels pretty seasonal in October. After all, this isn't just a Batman statue, it's a statue of Batman as an undead vampire, and a pretty creepy one at that.

Swamp Thing Goes On A World Tour Of Arboreal Destruction In ‘Swamp Thing’ #5

Swamp Thing #5, DC Comics

One thing I really appreciate about a city is when it has a nice green space. Parks, public gardens, even those little flower beds that you sometimes see at intersections and roundabouts, I love 'em all. They add a lot of character to a place, and they're really nice to look at. The thing is, they're only nice when they're, you know, planned out and cultivated, and not when they erupt through famous landmarks at the behest of an unstoppable plant elemental who is holding the world hostage. Those tend to be a little less pleasant.

And that's exactly what the world's facing in Len Wein and Kelley Jones's Swamp Thing #5, in which Matt Cable --- who you may remember from his lengthy tenure as a bird --- has taken over the power of the Swamp Thing, and immediately set about giving landmarks all over the world a new leafy makeover. Check out a preview!

An Extensive And Exhaustive Examination Of The Most Important Question In Superhero Comics: How Long Should Batman’s Ears Be?

Batman ears by Dick Sprang and Kelley Jones

Some of the most intense debates over minor comic details often come from one single element of the superhero genre: Batman's costume. Yellow oval or black bat? Belt pouches or capsules? Blue and grey or all black? With as many variations as there have been on one of the most iconic looks in history, there's no shortage of things to argue about, and today, we're going to settle one of the most long-lasting debates: How long should Batman's ears be?

Swamp Thing Gets Serious In January With Len Wein And Kelley Jones

Swamp Thing #1, DC Comics

It wasn't that long ago that DC's Convergence event gave a few creators the chance to return to characters that they made their mark on in past eras, and in January, it seems like that's an idea that's bleeding back into the DC Universe --- or at least to the Louisiana swamps of the DC Universe. On January 6, Swamp Thing relaunches with a new six-issue miniseries, coming courtesy of writer Len Wein, who co-created Swamp Thing with Bernie Wrightson back in 1971, and artist Kelley Jones.

Best Art Ever (This Week): Batman ’66, PJ Harvey, Calvin & Hobbes, Mister X and More

Untitled-1

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.

Disney’s Space Mountain Ride Gets Graphic Novel Trilogy

Space Mountain Comic

As Ric Flair always said, "Space Mountain may be the oldest ride in the park, but it still has the longest line."

Perhaps the Nature Boy's wisdom is why Disney has chosen the ride to be the basis for a trilogy of graphic novels written by Bryan Q. Miller and illustrated by Kelley Jones and Hi-Fi Design, the first of which will hit in May 6, 2014.
