Fresh Monkey Fiction Launches Kickstarter For Second Wave Of ‘Amazing Heroes’ Action Figures

Amazing-Heroes-Featured

Two years ago, we got really excited at the announcement that Fresh Monkey Fiction was creating a wave of superhero action figures based on classic Golden Age superheroes such as The Black Terror, Captain Action and Stardust The Super-Wizard. With that campaign a success, Fresh Monkey is returning with a second wave of heroes that features more Golden Age classics and several creator owned fan-favorites.

Joining Golden Age heroes and villains such as The American Crusader, Puzzler and Wonder Man (not that Wonder Man) are joined by the likes of Mike Allred's Madman, Mike Grell's Jon Sable, and Steve Rude's Nexus in a new Kickstarter campaign.

DC Revives Round-Robin Storytelling Series ‘DC Challenge’ Featuring Kamandi: The Last Boy On Earth

Kamandi-Challenge

In the mid-eighties, DC Comics tried a bizarre experiment known as the DC Challenge, a story told by twelve different creative teams over twelve comics, with the catch being that each issue would end on a cliffhanger that the next team would have to get themselves out of. Announced at Emerald City Comic Con, DC is reviving the series in the form of Kamandi Challenge, thirteen creative teams over twelve issues telling one complete story with the classic Jack Kirby character, Kamandi: The Last Boy On Earth.

The original DC Challenge featured the likes of Elliot S! Maggin, Mike W. Barr, Dave Gibbons, Gene Colan and so many more legendary creators. and featured the additional caveat that they could use any DC Comics characters, except ones they were currently working with elsewhere. The series culminated in a jam-packed final issue which was divided among six of the previous creative teams.

Steve Rude Covers ‘The Shield’ #2, And It’s Unsurprisingly Awesome [Preview]

The Shield #2, Dark Circle

When Archie's Dark Circle imprint relaunched The Shield back in October, it did it with a pretty interesting premise. Victoria Adams is the Shield, and in a twist playing off the Shield's status as the first "patriotic" hero in comics, her career fighting for the United States of America goes all the way back to the Revolutionary War. Unfortunately, she's got a touch of the amnesia, and is being hunted by her enemies.

But aside from the story, it also brought a great new design for the character, and when the second issue finally drops on February 17, some of our all-time favorite artists are going to be taking a shot at it, including "The Dude" Steve Rude and Evan "Doc" Shaner, along with the nicknameless Wilfredo Torres and David Williams. Check it out right here, along with a preview!

The Evolution of the World’s Finest: Best Superman/Batman Team-Ups by Decade

evo-worlds-finest

Many of comics’ most popular characters have been around for decades, and in the case of the big names from the publisher now known as DC Comics, some have been around for a sizable chunk of a century. As these characters passed through the different historical eras known in comics as the Golden Age (the late 1930s through the early 1950s), the Silver Age (the mid 1950s through the late 1960s), the Bronze Age (the early 1970s through the mid 1980s) and on into modern times, they have experienced considerable changes in tone and portrayal that reflect the zeitgeist of the time.

With this feature we’ll help you navigate the very best stories of DC Comics’ most significant characters decade by decade. This week, with the release of Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice just six months away, we’re taking a look at the best Superman/Batman team-up comics.

Gallery: Best Wonder Woman Art Ever

ww-feat

Since her 1941 debut, Wonder Woman has been one of the cornerstones of DC Comics, and of superhero comics in general.

In her 74-year-history, scores of artists have put their spin on the character, from subtle changes to her classic red, white, blue and gold costume to the "new" Wonder Woman of the late 1960s to some far more maligned interpretations that featured jackets and long pants. We've compiled a gallery of some of the most iconic Wonder Woman artists of the past seven decades, along with some positively stunning modern designs.
