Okay. More catching up with Awesome news from Blogarama.
Another Blue Beetle interview
I followed up my interview with the writer of Blue Beetle‘s all-Spanish issue by breaking the news about the series’ new, regular writer: Jack of Fables‘ Matt Sturges. Hopefully you can’t tell it from the interviews, but I’ve never read an issue of Blue Beetle before now. These conversations have made me want to change that though, so I’ll be picking up the Spanish issue this week as well as checking out Matt’s run. And I just bought the collection of the first six issues in the series.
There’s a new poster for the Incredible Hulk movie
And again, it’s got a great Bill Bixby vibe that’s making me hungry to see it.
I don’t read Platinum Comics because the vibe I get is that they’re all movie pitches first and comics second. I’d rather read comics by people who just really want to make comics.
That’s not to say that there aren’t some nifty movie ideas in their concepts though, so I’m actually curious to see more about the Atlantis Rising movie. I loves me some Atlantis stories.
Black Panther: The Animated Series
I got tired of the Black Panther comic once it got caught up in Civil War and became a second Fantastic Four title, but if the cartoon is anything like the early issues, I’ll be all over it.
Three Days in Europe movie
Back when I was actively trying to expand my tastes with some genres I don’t typically read, I thought I’d give Three Days in Europe a try thinking it was a Romance comic. It was, but it was also a crime/spy/adventure comic and it was really good. So I’m happy that it’s getting made into a movie starring Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Garner.
New Crystal Skull pics
Can be found here. None of them really grabbed me, but there they are.
Another Spirit poster
I like this one. It looks more like a Will Eisner splash page and less like Sin City 2. I’d prefer it not be in black-and-white though.
New X-Files comics
I never used to read X-Files comics when the show was still on even though one of my favorite writers, John Rozum, was writing them. Comics based on currently-being-produced TV shows are always creatively tied by the need to not contradict the show they’re based on. That might not be as big a problem now that X-Files is an infrequent movie series though, so I’m likely to give this a shot.
Women of DC poster by Adam Hughes
This was a giveaway at the New York Comic Con. Man, I love Adam Hughes.
From left to right: Catwoman, Oracle, Zatanna, Black Canary, Power Girl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batwoman, Vixen, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn.
Supergirl for kids
Fans have been clamoring for a more kid-friendly (or, more specifically, young-girl-friendly) Supergirl comic for a while now. Looks like they’re finally getting it.
Coming soon to a superhero universe near you. I sort of wish they were all gorillas, but how can you not make the webslinger a spider monkey? Well done, Marvel.
