On January 31st, 2016, writer Andrez Bergen and artist Frantz Kantor are launching a new superhero series in the pages of the Australian comics anthology Oi Oi Oi! Their series, Magpie, offers a humorous take on a superhero world, and the art that's been released thus far introduces an unlucky superhero with the familiar name of 3D-Man.
Kantor's art is nothing like what we're used to in traditional superhero comics. The figures are highly exaggerated, but the art has a three-dimensional quality, which creates a look reminiscent of Pixar's The Incredibles. There's also something very reminiscent of Don Simpson's Bizarre Heroes in the design and character of 3D-Man.
If there's one thing we've learned from our years on the Internet, it's that there's no aspect of comics that can't be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of ten. And since there's no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we're taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Ten Lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
This week, we're taking a look back on the many mullets bowl-cuts and other assorted disasters with the ten worst haircuts in superhero comic history!
If you're a fan of Warner Bros. Animation's DC Comics work, then you're already a fan of Shane Glines. Since 1996, he's been working as a character designer on shows like Superman: The Animated Series, The New Batman Adventures, Batman Beyond and Justice League Unlimited, and now, he's hard at work on the new Beware the Batman.
Beware the Batman debuted last weekend, and with it we got our first look at an entirely new version of Batman's rogues gallery. Rather than sticking with tried-and-true big name villains like the Joker, the Riddler or even the KGBeast, the producers of Beware have decided to go for deeper cuts, using villains that have never been used on a cartoon before...
If you've cocked an eyebrow at the preview material that's been floating around the Internet in advance of Beware the Batman's premiere this Saturday at 10 a.m. ET on Cartoon Network, thinking it doesn't match your conception of what a Batman cartoon typically looks like, then Warner Bros. Animation producers Glen Murakami and Mitch Watson have got you right where they want you. The look, the music, the fact that very few villains who have appeared on Batman TV shows before now, it's all intentional.
With that in mind, ComicsAlliance spent some time talking with the two producers over the phone about how they conceived the show, their influences, and what the benefits are to taking some big risks.
