As readers will know from our weekly Best Cosplay Ever feature, we’re big fans of cosplay at ComicsAlliance. The comics, sci-fi, gaming, and fantasy communities have proved time and again their exceptional talents for homemade disguises and superheroic sartorial excellence, and all of their craft and skill are on display this weekend at New York Comic-Con.
Our chief cosplay correspondent Betty Felon is on hand to document as much of it as she can. Scroll down for some of the very finest cosplay from New York.
Like many of us, Jennifer Walters hasn't had the best 2016. She was critically injured and left comatose in a fight with Thanos, and woke up to discover her cousin Bruce had been killed by Hawkeye, and her friends were now split into a second Civil War. This December, critically acclaimed writer Mariko Tamaki will explore the trauma Jen is experiencing along with artist Nico Leon in a new ongoing series simply titled Hulk.
The Avengers has seen street-level bounty hunters, world leaders, robots, spies, and even cosmic entities grace its roster through the years. So to celebrate the diversity of the Avengers, we’ve assembled a mighty cosplay gallery of its amazing alumni.
These cosplayers are as different in their portrayals as the characters are themselves, and each brings their own fantastic interpretations to their favorite heroes. From the originals to the latest, from the regulars to the oddities, each hero here is a reminder ofn the Marvel Universe --- and cosplay --- at its best.
Since the dawn of the Silver Age, legacy characters have been a staple of superhero fiction, and having a new character step into a well loved role can open up new opportunities for writers and artists to tell different kinds of stories. In The Replacements, we’ll look back at some of the most notable and not-so-notable heroes and villains to assume some of these iconic mantles.
Bruce Banner may have been the first person cursed to become the rampaging beast known as The Hulk, but over the years a Hulk Family of sorts has sprouted up with friends, enemies and children carrying on his legacy.
This weekend we were at Flame Con in Brooklyn to capture the kaleidoscopic cosplay strutting through the queer comics convention's second exhibition. Highlights include Stevonnie, Wiccan, Jubilee, Stranger Things' Barb, Rufio, multiple Magnetos, and a disgruntled Asgardian coffee shop employee!
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with over 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in comics in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
This week we're taking a look at Marvel's number one lime-colored litigator, She-Hulk! For over three decades, Jennifer Walters has been at the center of some of Marvel's most fun and joyous comic series, whether busting through the fourth wall or the glass ceiling. This video tracks the history of the Jade Giantess from savage to fantastic to sensational to adjectiveless. Click through to find out why Bruce Banner is the less interesting green cousin in that family.
Since acquiring licenses for both DC and Marvel Super-Heroes, Lego has been slowly expanding its line from iconic heroes like Superman and Spider-Man to more beloved fan-favorites such as Scarlet Spider and Captain Marvel. Next year sees the arrival of a few familar faces from the Hulk family of characters as the Green and Red sides go to war.
John Byrne is a controversial figure in comics, all the more so as he's moved to disavow his work with mainstream publishers, yet his legacy within the industry is undeniable, and his contributions to iconic franchise properties and to early creator-owned independent work are worthy of celebration.
Born on this day in 1950, John Byrne moved from England to Canada at the age of eight, and it was here that he first encountered American superhero comics. He enrolled in --- but dropped out of --- the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, and began contributing to Roger Stern and Bob Layton’s Contemporary Pictoral Literature. Their character Rog-2000 was spotted by Charlton Comics, and the team began contributing back-up stories in the pages of E-Man.
This month, the ladies of the Marvel Universe take center stage in the Marvel Collector Corps subscription box from Funko. It only took eight boxes to do it. I kid, I kid. Mostly. With the exception of Jane Foster's Thor in the Secret Wars box, we've been absent the likes of Marvel's biggest names on the female side of the company's roster. The contents of this box were certainly worth the wait however, as Captain Marvel, She-Hulk and Squirrel Girl all get some nice new merchandise. Why it took a special box for any of them to appear is something only Funko and Marvel know, but they're here now, so let's take a look inside this month's crate.
