And Gaiman himself has revealed leading actors in action with a photo of stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen in full costume as Aziraphale and Crowley.

This is a first look. Michael Sheen is the best and finest...

Marc Alan Fishman: Facing My Fears

16 September 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

As I noted last week, Unshaven Comics’ trek to Hotlanta for the annual Dragon Con had me face down several fears all at once. As Unshaven Matt Wright was sidelined due to a babysitting emergency, the biggest fear for me was knowing that our terrific trio was reduced to a dingy duo. Beyond that, there was the continual fear that our little shtick will finally reach the point that it doesn’t garner the excitement we count on to close sales. Add that ennui to the more concrete fear that a ten-hour trip in the car while completing the Whole 30 diet – one that forced me to give up everything but lean protein, fruits and vegetables – would make what is normally a doable drive become something more akin to the trek undertaken by a ragtag fellowship of adventurers trying to ditch a silly ring.

Troll Bridge by Neil Gaiman and Collen Doran

15 September 2017 3:37 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I didn’t remember Neil Gaiman’s story “Troll Bridge” well. In fact, if you’d asked me about it, I would have assumed some confusion on your part with Terry Pratchett’s short story “Troll Bridge,” and tried to lead you in that direction.

But story titles can’t be copyrighted, and even good friends can use the same ones without stress or strife. I’d forgotten it, but Gaiman did also write a story titled “Troll Bridge,” originally for the Datlow/Windling anthology Snow White, Rose Red in 1993 and collected a number of times since then. And, since Gaiman has a huge audience in comics that might not be as familiar with his just-prose works — or, at least, there are publishers willing to bet that’s the case — a number of his short stories have been turning into short graphic novels from Dark Horse over the past few years. »

Exclusive interview with Scott Snyder on Dark Nights: Metal

13 September 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church chats with Scott Snyder about Dark Nights: Metal…

Last month famed Batman writer and artist team Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo reunited at last for their long teased DC event, Dark Nights: Metal. The series sees Batman and the Justice League exploring a deep mystery of the DC Universe, one that threatens to destroy it if the Dark Multiverse is uncovered and Batman may unwittingly let it through.

Since the first prelude issue, Dark Days: The Forge #1, Snyder has weaved together many elements from his and Capullo’s Batman run, tying together the Court of Owls’ electrum metal to The Joker’s Dionysium to the Nth metal wielded by Hawkman and the Thanargarians. Dark Nights: Metal #1 ended with Batman escaping from the Justice League and their would-be captors with a piece of Nth metal, determined to solve this case on his own for the League’s protection, »

Mindy Newell: Days Of Yore

11 September 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Presenting two real-life stories from my days of yore, although names have been changed to protect both the innocent and the guilty.

Story The First:

I knew a girl in high school – I wouldn’t say we were friends, but she was someone who had never participated in the Piggy horrors. Sally was an A+ student, on the track to an Ivy League school. Pretty (but not gorgeous) and popular (but quiet about it), she came to me one day and said that she needed to talk to me privately. I was surprised… and a bit suspicious. What did she want? But because Sally had never been overtly mean to me, even though she was part of the clique that instigated most of the callous cruelties upon me, and because I still hoped to be “accepted,” and I wanted to believe for some reason she was about to warn me »

Len Wein, Co-Creator of Swamp Thing and Wolverine, Has Passed Away

10 September 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

There's no doubt that the landscape of modern-day comics (and, by extension, comic book film adaptations) would not be quite what it is today without Len Wein, who co-created two of the most intriguing characters in comic book history. It is with heavy hearts, then, that we share the news of the innovative writer and editor's passing at the age of 69.

The news of Wein's passing comes from multiple sources, including DC Comics and Variety. The cause of death has not been announced, but fans of Wein who keep up on his Twitter account know that he has been undergoing surgeries in recent years, including getting a new heart valve in 2016.

After Wein began writing for DC Comics in the late 1960s, there was no looking back, as he went on to make his mark on comic book history by co-creating Swamp Thing with Bernie Wrightson (who also passed away »
