Ever since DC launched Batman '66, the crossover that virtually everyone wanted was a meeting between the Adam West-era Caped Crusader and Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman. Now, it's happening in the pages of Batman '66 Meets Wonder Woman '77, a crossover from Jeff Parker, Marc Andreyko, David Hahn, and Karl Kesel that takes place across three different eras, pitting Batman and Wonder Woman against Ra's al-Ghul, Talia, and a handful of other special guest villains.
It's an incredibly entertaining story that goes well beyond what both series were able to do on TV. To find out more about it, ComicsAlliance spoke to Hahn and Kesel about the challenge of drawing a story with three different flavors of retro style, and the era's perfect "casting" of Ra's al-Ghul, and we got a first look at this week's issue.
While DC Comics has had a great 2016 largely thanks to its DC Rebirth initiative, the success of its updated Hanna-Barbera titles such as Future Quest and The Flintstones has been one of the most surprising hits of the year. Next year, DC is doubling down on its classic cartoon characters by teaming them up with some of the most iconic heroes in the DC Universe in a number of special annuals set for release in March.
This month in DC's January solicitations, a number of iconic '90s characters make their return to the spotlight, Batman faces off against the Green Lanterns, and Doctor Doom invades the DC Universe... kind of.
Doctor Strange is a second-tier character in the Marvel pantheon, but he's making the leap to the big leagues thanks to the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. To help get you up to speed with the character, we've compiled a list of ten of the best Doctor Strange stories ever published. These are the stories that will introduce you to his major foes and his main supporting cast, and get you acquainted with all the many great talents that have worked on the character over the years.
DC's digital-first re-imaginings and continuations of beloved superhero shows of decades past have not only yielded some great comics in their own right, but recently they've been crossing over with other properties in a similar vein. Batman '66 has met up with Green Hornet and The Man From Uncle while Wonder Woman '77 has been hanging out with The Bionic Woman.
Later this year, thing rocket to their logical conclusion as, for the first time, Adam West and Burt Ward's Batman and Robin team-up with Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman for an epic crossover that could only be called Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77.
On June 12th, 2016, a gunman entered the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and killed forty-nine people, as well as wounding fifty-three more. It was the biggest terror attack on American soil since September 11th, and a purposeful attack on predominantly Latinx gay and bisexual men in what was supposed to be a safe space.
This December, DC Comics and IDW are coming together to publish an anthology titled Love Is Love, which sees over one hundred comics creators coming together to contribute stories, with all proceeds going to Equality Florida and the fund to benefit the survivors of the attack.
Things are looking dire for Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman '77 Chapter 22, the digital-first series from writer Marc Andreyko and artist Tom Derenick that recently came back from hiatus. Steve's body has been taken over by the brain of a supervillain, and Wonder Woman is trapped between his psionic attacks and the guns of her supposed allies, who aren't as concerned with Steve's safety as she is.
As far as DC's space-faring heroes go, Hawkman and Adam Strange have had a bit of a rocky relationship over the years. Despite both being nominally good guys and occasional Justice Leaguers, their major interaction in the past has resulted from Thanagar and Rann, their respective planets, going to war with each other --- presumably over the fact that Rann's capital is called "Ranagar," and that's way too confusing.
Now, though, there's something new on the horizon. Today, DC announced Hawkman/Adam Strange: Out Of Time, a new series set to kick off in October from writer Marc Andreyko and artist Aaron Lopresti, where the two heroes team up --- and this time, it's to stop an interplanetary war form breaking out.
With the possible exception of Shogun Assassin 2: Lightning Swords of Death, I'm not sure there's anything in the history of our language that has a better name than Airwolf. There are thrills to be found in the word itself, and once you get to the part where it's actually the name of a nuclear-powered stealth helicopter that ran explosive secret missions for four seasons on network television, well, of course it was. How could that word describe anything else?
And now, Airwolf is back --- in comic book form! Next week sees the release of Airwolf: Airstirkes Vol. 1, a new collection of helicopter action stories from an impressive roster of creators, including Barbara Kesel, Mike Baron and Marc Andreyko --- and you can check out a preview below!
