Valiant Announces 'Ninjak Vs The Valiant Universe' Webseries
Over the course of the past month or so Valiant Entertainment has been teasing the announcement of a project featuring live action actors, but the exact details have been kept under wraps until now. Today at New York Comic Con, the publisher unveiled a new division known as Valiant Digital, aimed at creating digital-first short film content, and debuted the trailer for a blockbuster six-part webseries titled Ninjak vs The Valiant Universe.
What's Marvel Hinting At? Could 'Slingers' Make A Comeback?
What's Marvel Hinting At? Could 'Slingers' Make A Comeback?
Marvel released a bafflingly oblique teaser image on Tuesday, the words 'DEAD NO MORE' against a black background, prompting fans to speculate which of Marvel's heroes is next in line for a resurrection, even as they're debating which hero will die (for a while) in the pages of Civil War II. Before any kind of consensus could be achieved, Marvel released a second teaser today, 'BEST BEWARE MY STING', against a black and yellow background. A quote from Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew, the line and colors both suggest the character Wasp, aka Janet Van Dyne. But Janet already came back from the dead; surely the first teaser can't be about her? So what other theories do we have? Well... is it possible that Marvel is hinting at a relaunch of Slingers?
The House That Silence Built: Harassment in the Comics Industry
The House That Silence Built: Harassment in the Comics Industry
On October 1, Graphic Policy published a story by Janelle Asselin that alleged a history of harassment and inappropriate behavior committed by Dark Horse executive senior editor (formerly editor-in-chief) Scott Allie. In it, Joe Harris, who writes The X-Files comics, claimed that at the Hilton Bayfront hotel bar during Comic-Con in San Diego this year, Allie grabbed his crotch and bit him on the ear. Speaking to ComicsAlliance, Harris explains why he went public about his experience. “I was outraged that it happened, and because people rarely feel comfortable coming forward, and I'm sick of hearing about this cr--, generally,” he said. “I've experienced a range of emotions since the incident, from embarrassment to anger to pity for the perpetrator and anger at the company that had him out there, swimming around like a shark in the aquarium when this was not an isolated incident, as I'd later learn.” Harris says the incident made what is regarded as a widespread, unspoken problem in the industry very real to him.
Six Things The New 'Alice Cooper' Comic Series Should Include
Six Things The New 'Alice Cooper' Comic Series Should Include
The world of comics fans who also love larger-than-life horror rock acts from the 1970s (so everyone who read Kiss: Psycho Circus) was abuzz Thursday upon news of a new Dynamite Entertainment Alice Cooper comic series by writer Joe Harris (The X-Files), artist Eman Casallos (The Ninjettes) and cover artist David Mack (Kabuki). Dynamite's description of the new series, which launches in September, touts it as the story of Cooper's secret role as "The Lord of Nightmares." He's apparently been locked out of his kingdom by a usurper and is struggling to regain his title. That sounds pretty cool, but does it really encompass all that is Alice Cooper? We don't think so. Here are some other aspects of Cooper we hope to see in the comic's pages.
