Archie Comics Releases All-Star Series of Variant Covers, Weirdly They’re To Commemorate Archie Andrews’ Death

Untitled-1

What is assuredly the weirdest sentence I'll have written in all my years at this website: Archie Andrews will heroically sacrifice his life to save that of a deae friend in the penultimate issue of Life With Archie in July

Written by Paul Kupperberg with art by Pat & Tim Kennedy and Fernando Ruiz, Life With Archie #36 will depict the title character's death and come with a plethora of variant covers by some of our favorite artists like Francesco Francavilla, Fiona Staples, Ramón Pérez, Walt Simonson, Jill Thompson, Mike Allred, Cliff Chiang, Adam Hughes, Tommy Lee Edwards and Alex Ross.

‘Silver Surfer’ #1 Chooses Incident Over Introspection [Review]

Silver Surfer 1 Review
Marvel Comics

For most of his publication history, the Silver Surfer has been a character marked by tragedy and tumult. The inherent irony of the character was that he could traverse the vastness of space with ease and wield immeasurable power in the palm of his hand, but he could hardly bear the torture of his own emotions.

The first issue of the brand new Silver Surfer series by writer Dan Slott, artist Mike Allred and colorist Laura Allred chucks a lot of that baggage out the window, and, believe it or not, it’s all the better for it.

Marvel Reveals RADD New ‘Silver Surfer’ #1 Art And Covers By Allred, Francavilla, Samnee And Young [Preview]

Silver Surfer 1 Preview

Marvel teased a bit of Mike Allred 's art when it announced he'd be working with writer Dan Slott on a new Silver Surfer ongoing series a few months back during New York Comic Con, but today the publisher finally hit us with a wave of shiny new Norrin Radd art. In addition to Allred's previously seen cover, there's three new pages from March's Silver Surfer #1 infused with the Madman creator and recent FF artist's brand of cosmic comic energy, plus a variant cover by Francesco Francavilla, an animal variant by Chris Samnee and a (appropriately dubbed) young variant by Skottie Young. I'm pretty sure that if Kid Galactus chopmed down every planet in adorable cereal-bowl-style, Reed Richards would've just let him have Earth.

The C.W.’s ‘iZombie’ Casts Star, Sounds Almost Nothing Like The Vertigo Comic

Liv Eats Brains izombie

Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero's TV adaptation of the Vertigo comic iZombie has made its first casting choices, including the male lead.

That role, a police detective named Clive (a character who wasn't in the comic), has gone to Malcolm Goodwin, who starred in the A & E series Breakout Kings. Alexandra Krosney of the sitcom Last Man Standing and Alias' David Anders have also been cast as female lead Liv's best friend, Peyton, and the chief antagonist, Blaine, respectively.

If none of those names look familiar, it's because the TV version of iZombie is shaping up to be vastly different from the Chris Roberson and Mike Allred-created comic that inspired it. Even the lead character's name has apparently changed from Gwen to Liv.

‘iZombie’ Gets A Pilot Pickup At The CW

iZombie

Fraction, Bagley and Allred Rein In ‘Fantastic Four’ and ‘FF’ [Double-Review]

ff2

One way creators try to leave their stamp on company-owned characters is to raise the stakes of a story. "I told the biggest ________ story ever," they want to say as they move on to other work. Of course, raising the stakes in a Fantastic Four book, considering that the original creative team of Jack Kirby and Stan Lee put the heroes in a situation in which Earth was threatened by a planet-eating demigod with a device that could destroy the universe, is a particular challenge. Yet recent creative team
