Over the past few years, Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti have carved out their own little corner of the DC Universe and filled it with some of its weirdest antics and strangest characters. The writing team has been responsible for shepherding Harley Quinn through her most popular years in pop culture, and will soon take on the duties of re-inventing The Jetsons for a modern age.
ComicsAlliance caught up with the team, who are also a married couple, to talk about their approach to Harley, their luck with artistic collaborators, and translating millennial fears to a hopeful post-apocalypse.
So far, DC's Kamandi Challenge --- a bizarre experiment in Exquisite Corpse storytelling about the Last Boy on Earth and his journey across Jack Kirby's map of a post-apocalyptic earth --- has been a hoot. The mix of high-concept action and the genuine uncertainty of having no idea where this story is going is something that you don't often get in comics, and as much as I thought it was a weird idea, it's always the first thing I read on the Wednesdays where it hits shelves.
But sadly, the third issue has dashed my hopes for Kamandi's trip to a post-apocalyptic San Diego Comic-Con. Instead, Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner, and Paul Mounts are going in a bit of a different direction. Check out a preview below!
Welcome back to All For the Wookiee, where we take a look at the recent Star Wars universe offerings from Marvel and pick the most Star Wars-ish moments. It's another jam-packed installment, with two-fers for Star Wars, Kanan and Lando, alongside Darth Vader issue #8. We'll take a look at the highs, the lows, the in-betweens and rate the Star Wars-iness of each moment.
A more appropriate name for DC Comics' Convergence event, at least the miniseries that will accompany the main series for two months next spring, may be "Nostalgia Trip."
DC has been rolling out titles and creative teams for the 40 planned series week by week. The first batch focused on the publisher's pre-New 52 continuity. The second focused on the 1990s (including WildStorm), and the third seemed to center on the 1980s.
The fourth and final group of miniseries, which DC announced Tuesday, covers a much wider time period: All of DC's pre-Crisis On Infinite Earths continuity. And there's another twist: They all take place on defined and listed alternate Earths which existed before the company's last line-wide reboot in the 1980s.
On sale this week from Marvel Comics is FF #8. Written by Jonathan Hickman with artwork by Steve Epting and Paul Mounts, the issue finds Sue Richards (aka the Invisible Woman) in conversation with her father-in-law, Nathanial Richards, who's recruited her husband Reed (aka Mr...
Prostitution has been explored pretty thoroughly in Hollywood, but I'm not sure anything's approached the superpowered depravity of an animated version of "The Pro." Based on Garth Ennis, Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti and Paul Mounts' 2002 one-shot from Image Comics, the animated trailer serves as something of a summary of the hooker heroine's adventures in a world of superhero parody...
