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.
Jose Molina and Simone Bianchi are bringing back a spiritual Afro-Latino Tribeca superhero team that you've probably never heard of in the pages of the newly announced Amazing Spider-Man #1.1 this fall. The very obscure Santerians, who have had four appearances in total in the last ten years, will be the featured guests of the ninth Spider-Man-related Marvel title on the stands this November --- a limited series spinning out of Dan Slott and Giuseppe Camuncoli's Amazing Spider-Man ongoing starring the Peter Parker Spider-Man.
The complicated history of Miracleman reaches its long-delayed resolution in September with the launch of Miracleman #1, by Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham. The issue kicks off Gaiman and Buckinham's 'Golden Age' storyline, remastered from the original artwork with colors by D'Israeli and lettering by Todd Klein. Later issues will continue and complete the 'Silver Age' and 'Dark Age' storylines. The first issue also features covers from Joe Quesada, Simone Bianchi, and a jam cover from Miracleman veterans Garry Leach, Jon Totleben, Alan Davis and Rick Veitch.
This week's rumors that Selma director Ava DuVernay had signed on to direct a Black Panther movie were a bit premature (though talks apparently continue), but the excitement that surrounded the news confirmed one thing: People really want to see Wakandan King T'Challa on the big screen, and they want to see him done right.
Here's some of the best art featuring T'Challa from the past five decades, from Kirby, Denys Cowan and John Buscema, to Francesco Francavilla, Olivier Coipel, and the best fan art around.
We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.
Marvel Comics announced on Wednesday Thanos Rising, a new miniseries by Jason Aaron and Simone Bianchi that will offer what would appear to be an authoritative, modern origin of the cosmic villain who was introduced to millions of moviegoers in the closing moments of The Avengers. Beginning in April, the story of Thanos' rise to p
Today at the C2E2 expo in Chicago, Marvel elaborated on a number of major announcements they've been teasing of late. Perhaps the biggest news is the introduction of a new ongoing Hawkeye series by part of the acclaimed Immortal Iron Fist team of Matt Fraction and David Aja; meanwhile, Khoi Pham will be replacing Ryan Stegman on Scarlet Spider, with Stegman moving to help Jonathan Hickman wrap up his Fantastic Four run. The previously-previewed Jeph Loeb
Everyone knows that death is never permanent in superhero comics, but even this is a surprise. Despite being graphically decapitated in the conclusion of 2003's Wolverine: Evolution, the X-Man's longtime nemesis Sabertooth will return to the land of living in a future story by Jeph Loeb and Simone Bianchi, the creators who took him out in the first place. The news was dropped at Marvel Comics' Cup 'O Joe panel at New York Comic C
See these three guys up there? They want you to read this comic.
In case you missed us gushing over this comic a few days ago, Uncanny X-Force is the new hotness: a book containing so many ideas that it should be a mess, but instead display a level of forethought that makes it into grindhouse event comics. The series is ugly, in the best sense of the term; it's about ugly characters in ugly situations doing really ugly things, but the stakes are high and the dialogue is witty
