Amazing Marvel and DC Superhero Mashup Art I've seen a few Marvel and DC character mashups in the past, but this series created by artist Eric Guzman is the best one yet. He's taken several of our favorite comic book heroes and villains from the two big comic universes and mashed them together to create this amazing geek art awesomeness! The character design above is called The Amazing Spider-Bat. It's my favorite of the series. Captain Krypton Banenom
s Best Comics of 2010: #1 The relationship between people and animals is often complicated, and has always been complicated since the first moment of domestication, when we made an animal more to us than just a living vessel of protein. What could we do? It followed us home. Three Trees Studios Well, after a massively long delay, our Rook City webcomic will once again be updating regularly at least for the next month or so as we finish off the “Convention Blues” storyline. 21 new pages will eventually be posted, making this by far the longest Rook City tale as of yet. The pages are all done (and even sent off to the printer) and will be posted one per weekday until the story concludes (except today when you get two pages and the cover). The story will see print in Rook City #2, which will premiere at Planet Comicon next month! Why the delay in finishing this story? Well, the main reason is that I got pulled away into a lot of other projects. In the time since I started this story, we have published three other comics and I’ve illustrated eight children’s books.
For the Fans, By the Fans Instead of the usual bio section with hundreds of short bios that would need constant updating, Uncanny X-Men Net has decided to create this unique Spotlight On ... category. Each entry will put the focus on one X-related character with a very rich and confusing history, preferably those that are currently a team member in one of the monthly titles. Each character will be featured with a very detailed history, an issue checklist, a costume gallery and important events in the person‘s life will be illustrated with scanned pictures from the actual issues. The date listed below each entry is the date it was either last modified or added to the Spotlight section. The authors of the texts are credited within the entries. Douglas Mangum checks the entries for grammar, spelling and punctuation, Monolith provides all power descriptions used for the vital stats pages.
Greg Weisman Brings Big Plans To "Young Justice: Invasion" In the world of superhero animation, Greg Weisman is known as the man with the plan. From his acclaimed '90s series "Gargoyles" through his fan favorite run with "Spectacular Spider-Man," the writer and executive producer puts together shows chock full of world-building and continuity where twists and turns often become major payoffs as the seasons develop. Currently, Weisman is at the helm of "Young Justice: Invasion" – the second season of the Cartoon Network series that has grown to anchor the DC Nation block of Saturday morning programming. After a first season that wrapped with Vandal Savage taking control of the Justice League for some mysterious intergalactic sabotage, the "Invasion" story takes place five years after Season 1 with some major shake-ups to the team. Robin has become Nightwing, Kid Flash has retired and Aqualad has turned to the dark side, teaming up with his father Black Manta...or so it seemed. Greg Weisman: We had two-year game plan from pretty much day one.
Fitness Models Portray Marvel and DC Characters With The Help of Body Paint Some people say that comic book super heroines are drawn unrealistically; that they’re a gross misrepresentation of the female form. I have a hard time agreeing with that statement. Not when super bods exists in real life. The human form comes in all shapes and sizes. While the majority of us land on the average scale, there are those that rock the god bod.
