When DC and IDW published Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles earlier this year, I honestly thought that DC Comics had hit the apex of putting out crossovers that fans have been wanting since at least 1993. It turns out that I was wrong, because in January, DC and Boom Studios are teaming up for Justice League/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a six-issue mini-series in which Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Green Lantern and the Flash team up with Angel Grove's favorite Teenagers With Attitudes for an all-new adventure.
Earlier today, we broke the news that The Ray will be joining Steve Orlando and Ivan Reis' upcoming Justice League of America ongoing with a one-shot by Orlando and Stephen Byrne but Ray Terrill won't be alone. Throughout today at various outlets and on DC's own website, the publisher has announced the new Justice League of America line-up featuring some fan-favorite characters getting their moment in the sun!
DC Comics has been very secretive about its upcoming Justice League of America title. So far, all we've known is that Midnighter and Apollo writer Steve Orlando will helm the book, but there have been few other details announced, until today.
ComicsAlliance can exclusively reveal that Ray Terrill AKA The Ray will be joining the team, kicking off with a one-shot titled Justice League of America: The Ray by Orlando and recent Green Arrow artist, Stephen Byrne --- and he may be one of the first LGBTQ heroes to join the team.
Superman would have entered the public domain last year if Congress hadn't extended copyright protection more than fifteen years ago. For now, and possibly forever, DC has the exclusive rights to profit from the character --- but that happily hasn't yet stopped artists from paying tribute with their own fan-made, not-for-profit works. Among those works is artist and animator Stephen Byrne's awesome nine-page silent story starring his modern makeover versions of DC's 'Trinity', Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman.
The redesigns started out as a pin-up that proved especially popular on social media earlier this year. Byrne decided to turn the pin-up into a story, and has been posting the pages online as he completes them, with the final page going up just this past week. The story has a surprising twist in the tale that you're unlikely to see in an official Superman comic. And we don't just mean Batman using a gun.
Within hours of Mad Max: Fury Road hitting theaters, Tumblr, Twitter, and Instagram exploded with fan art featuring the neon wasteland desert and its high octane inhabitants. One character, though, inspired artists like no other --- Imperator Furiosa, the steely warrior of Immortan Joe's army. ComicsAlliance has compiled a collection of our favorites, including a brand-new piece by the talented Greg Ruth, and an exquisite black and white sketch by Jamie McKelvie.
