The fourth issue of Multiversity, Thunderworld Adventures, with art by Cameron Stewart, colors by Nathan Fairbairn and letters by Steve Wands, was initially described by Morrison as taking the All Star Superman approach to Captain Marvel. Set on Earth-5 — previously Earth-S in the pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths DC Multiverse — it's far more evocative of the original Fawcett Comics incarnations of these characters than any versions that have been in the DC Universe since.
Lighthearted and fun, with gorgeous art by Stewart and Fairbairn and a lettering style from Wands evocative of the neo-C.C. Beck take Jeff Smith took in his recent Monster Society of Evil prestige miniseries, it's the anti-Pax Americana in tone, subject matter and symbolism, while maintaining a consistency of message and intent.
Pen Ward's surprisingly well-adjusted teens from the year 3085 look like they'll be cutting loose on October 23 in Bravest Warriors #13. Writer Eric M. Esquivel, artist Mike Holmes, colorist Lisa Moore, and letterer Steve Wands pit the team against the fierce "Periodic Table of Evil" on page one, and don't let up from there with a plot that involves Danny experimenting with insect poison during a perilous vision quest. You know, the usual kind of deal. Boom! Studios has provided CA with a first look at the latest assembly of adventure, which you can click through to preview in full.
Following the haunting "Finn the Human" episode of Adventure Time, many fans may have thought they'd never see the bleak "Farmland" timeline again. Leave it to Ryan North, Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb to not leave you hanging, though. A comparatively dour version of AT's last boy on Earth known as Finn Mertens a.k.a. "Farmland Finn" returned in the last issue of AT and his mechanical-armed adventures continue in Adventure Time #19 on August 21. Things aren't exactly what they seem this time around, however, as both Finn and his best friend Jake the dog work together to overcome the weirdness of converging nightmare worlds.
Collider #1 is an attractive package. And I say package because that's really what this feels like. The way comics work, or at least the way they should work, is with every piece -- script, art, color, and lettering -- working in sync, and when everything is right, you have a good story. Sometimes great visuals carry a mediocre script, and vice versa, but that's not ideal. In Collider, the newest Vertigo series, you have a comic that works: a script from Simon Oliver, art from Robbi Rodriguez, colors from Rico Renzi, letters from Steve Wands and a cover by Nathan Fox, melding together to tell a fun story about weird physics, dangerous jobs, and the inevitability of change.
Though the title of Jeremy Sorese's Adventure Time#15 backup is "Give Us Back BMO," fans needn't worry about Finn and Jake going full Gibson in next week's issue - their sentient video game console pal/roommate isn't being held for ransom, after all. Unfortunately, it's ev
Following our cover reveal for Bravest Warriors #7 a few months back, we knew that the issue would pack futuristic beauty pageant espionage. What we didn't know was that awesome giant cyborgs would be involved in a kerfluffle with the team. Sensing our ensured excitement about how writer Joey Comeau, artist Mike Holmes, colorist Lisa Moore
If you dug the first installment of Chris Schweizer's "Princess of Rad Hats" backup in last month's Adventure Time, you'll be pleased to know that it'll be back for part two in Wednesday's Adventure Time #14. Schweizer's second installme
Anyone who has ever lost a pet -- even for a moment -- knows it's a worrisome affair. For the extra-emotional Bravest Warriors team, being separated from their companion Catbug is similarly gut-wrenching. Artist Ryan Pequin and Mirka Andolfo's "Catbug is Missing" backup in Bravest Warriors #6, out o
Adventure Time fans have watched Finn and Jake try their respective human/dog hands at kingship before and it wasn't exactly their thing. In this week's Adventure Time #13 backup, "Princess of Rad Hats," by Chris Schweizer the pair of heroes ar
Bodysnatching bad guys are traditionally depicted as germs, viruses, bugs, worms and other less-than-lovely corruptors. In Ryan Pequin and colorist Mirka Andolfo'sBravest Warriors #5 backup, "Cute Calamity," however, the team may be up against a much more cuddly threat when the huge-hearted Wallow adopts a pet of unknown alien origins. It's kind of like the time I w
