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 will be on display this weekend at HeroesCon. 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 HeroesCon!
The comic book movie craze may have exploded in recent years, but there have been movies and TV shows based on our favorite comics for decades. For all the action we see on screen, however, we hardly ever get to see behind the curtain at how it all comes together.
Fortunately, we've managed to uncover dozens of behind the scenes images from your favorite comic-inspired movies. From The Dark Knight to Dredd, and Conan to Kick-Ass, we now have a little bit of an idea of what life was like on set during the creation of these beloved adaptations.
Every now and then I'll get away from comics long enough to swing by the movie theater, and I've noticed that the posters just aren't getting any better. I mean, really, how many times can we see someone posing while looking seriously to their left or a close-up of somebody's face with four lines of text written over it before it's time for a revolution?
Fortunately, there are artists out there working to shape things up, and Mike Wrobel is among them. He's done some fantastic art, including posters for classic movies like Alien, The Thing and Friday the 13th -- and luckily for all of us, they contain a good amount of Kurt Russel. Check out our favorites below!
When Funko announced that they'd be teaming with Super7 to mass produce and distribute the 3.75" ReAction line, it seemed fan dreams of owing toys in the style of Kenner's 1977 Star Wars figures across both classic and contemporary pop culture licenses were going to come true. Little did anyone know just HOW true. Thanks to new images at Entertainment Earth, collectors can now have a look at what's going to be a busy 2014, with more than 60 total ReAction figures planned from movies including The Rocketeer, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Predator, The Terminator, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Back to the Future, Escape from New York, Firefly, Scream, The Goonies, Universal Monsters, Pulp Fiction, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Hellraiser, Trick 'R Treat, Halloween and The Crow.
James O'Barr's The Crow is experiencing a pretty hefty resurgence on the eve of its 25th -- and its movie adaptation's 20th -- anniversary. Joining the several new comic book projects at IDW and new movie reboot that's in the works is a new The Crow: 1/6th scale Eric Draven Collectible Figure bearing the likeness of the late actor Brandon Lee.
The Crow creator James O'Barr is apparently going to have a good bit of say in what happens in the new series based on his long-running series, which started in 1989. Earlier this month, production company Relativity Media confirmed O'Barr would serve as a consultant for the film, but it looks like the creator's art is going to be very important to promoting the movie -- at least in the early going.
The Crow creator James O'Barr has come onboard as a consultant for Relativity Media's movie reboot of his 1990s comics series, Variety reports. Among his duties will be an appearance with director Javier Gutierrez at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
After almost two decades of keeping a relatively low profile in the comic industry, James O'Barris back with a vengeance (literally) in December, writing and drawing a new mini-series for IDW starring his most famous creation, The Crow...
IDW Publishing came prepared to Anaheim, California's WonderCon event last weekend, announcing several high profile comic book initiatives. Besides the previously discussed Womanthology ongoing series (of miniseries) and the full-length Rocketeer project by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee, IDW is developing a revival of James O'Barr's The Crow with creators John Shirley and Kevin Colden; brand new Judge Dredd stories as well as reprint archival material from 2000 AD; a return of the acclaimed The Cape by Joe Hill and Jason Ciaramella with art by Zach Howard and Nelson Daniel; new KISS comics written by Chris Ryall and Tom Waltz with art by Jamal Igle and Casey Maloney; a new collection of rare and unpublished Dave Stevens material; and (perhaps) final Locke & Key installment by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez; and new work by Ben McCool and Mike Costa.Whi...
