Exclusive Preview: A New Day Dawns In Teen Titans #17

For me, it always makes for an interesting read whenever you see the immediate fallout explored after a major event or story arc concludes. Really, I like to be assured that there are consequences and actually happen to be a comic book reader that’s not opposed to change.

Well, in the next issue of Teen Titans, expect to see how the recently concluded “Super Sons of Tomorrow” continues to affect some of DC’s most popular adolescent heroes. And yes, we’re talking about the very same tale that included the awesomely insane version of Tim Drake from an alternate timeline.

Thanks to DC Entertainment, we’re able to exclusively present some of the first images taken from the next chapter in the ongoing saga, each of which can be viewed in the accompanying gallery.

Lobo screenwriter discusses his comic book inspirations for the DC movie

Last week it was announced that Warner Bros. is courting Transformers director Michael Bay to take the reins on the studio’s long-gestating DC adaptation Lobo movie, and now we have some comments from screenwriter Justin Fuchs (Wonder Woman), who has discussed his comic book inspirations for the project.

“I think when you’re working on comic book characters, especially ones that are near and dear to my heart, like Wonder Woman and Lobo are, you want to create something that’s true to what the original text is,” Fuchs told Lrm. “I think Wonder Woman really captures the feeling of — not only the original Moulton Marston comics, but the George Perez run in the late-80s. It feels like reading those comics up on the big screen. So for something like Lobo, without saying too much about it, it’ll feel, I imagine, quite different because the Lobo comic itself is quite different.

The Screenwriter of Lobo Talks About His Approach To The Film

I don't know about you, but I'm excited about finally seeing the interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter Lobo come to the big screen. It's been a long time coming, and it looks like Michael Bay might actually end up directing it.

The studio think's that Lobo "could be their answer to Deadpool" and now the screenwriter of the film, Jason Fuchs, opens up a little bit about his approach to developing the script. Fuchs in the same guy who wrote Wonder Woman for Warner Bros. and fans hope that he can bring that same level of storytelling quality to Lobo. During an interview with Lrm Online, he talked about his work on the film saying:

"I think when you’re working on comic book characters, especially ones that are near and dear to my heart, like Wonder Woman and Lobo are, you want to create something that’s true to what the original text are.

Wonder Woman 2 working title prompts speculation about the sequel’s villain

With director Patty Jenkins hard at work in development on Wonder Woman 2, Omega Underground is reporting that the sequel to last year’s DC Extended Universe blockbuster is going by the working title Magic Hour, prompting speculation as to which villain Gal Gadot’s Amazon Princess could be facing.

As the site notes, this could potentially be a hint at the involvement of the DC sorceress Circe, who was rumoured as a potential antagonist for the first movie, with Eva Green (Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children) said to have been under consideration.

Based upon the Greek mythological figure, Circe made her first appearance in Wonder Woman #37 back in 1949, with the character reimagined by George Perez in 1988. At this point, her inclusion in the sequel is simply speculation, and it is entirely possible that the working title is simply random, and Warner Bros. could be going down a different route for its antagonist.

German Magazine Cover Features New Look At The Black Order From Avengers: Infinity War

Proving that you can’t conquer (obliterate?) the world alone, Josh Brolin’s almighty Thanos will be bringing one or two villainous friends to the party when Avengers: Infinity War checks into theaters in May.

In his quest to round up all six Infinity Stones, the Mad Titan is expected to seek the assistance of the Black Order, a ragtag group of space oddities that all hold one thing in common: their bloodline can be traced back to Thanos.

That’s right, not unlike Nebula and Gamora – Karen Gillan and Zoe Saldana, respectively – the Black Order are the adopted children of Thanos, and wage war against Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in his name. There are four in total (read: Corvus Glaive, Ebony Maw, Proxima Midnight, and Cull Obsidian), and thanks to the latest issue of Panini Vorschau, we now have another sneak peek at Infinity War‘s other villains.

First spotted by ComicBook.

How Christopher Priest Brought Black Panther Into The 21st Century

In 1998, Marvel was in a tough spot. A string of real-world events (the Image Revolution, the Heroes World Distribution fiasco, Chapter 11 bankruptcy and ultimately a takeover by Toy Biz in 1997) and storylines of wildly varying quality (“The Clone Saga,” “Heroes Reborn,” “Onslaught”) had left the biggest publisher in comics reeling and in desperate need of new blood. Luckily, they found some.

Similar to how Marvel had farmed out “Heroes Reborn” to Rob Liefeld’s Extreme Studios and Jim Lee’s Wildstorm two years earlier, the publisher reached out to Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti, the founders of Event Comics, then flying high on the success of Ash, Painkiller Jane and George Perez’s Crimson Plague. Seeing which way the wind was blowing, Marvel brass contracted the duo to create a new line focusing on second-tier Marvel heroes who weren’t as overexposed as Spider-Man or the X-Men, and gave them complete creative control.

‘Hellcat’ #1 is Incredibly Fun and Relatable

Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat! #1

Written by Kate Leth

Art by Brittney Williams

Colors by Megan Wilson

Letters by Joe Sabino and Clayton Cowles

Published by Marvel Comics

After an intriguing flash forward opening page Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat! #1 gets right down to superhero business with its titular heroine stopping a D-list supervillain, who can move objects with his mind. And quotes Wicked. And after this hilarious and epic twist where Patsy chats with the would-be armed truck thief (and Inhuman) Telekinian, befriends him, helps him use his powers for good by floating a nice girl’s Broadway tickets up from a gutter where her horrible boyfriend put them, and also gives him pointers on picking a code name. (Telekinesis + Ian equals close, but no cigar.) This is only the appetizer in writer Kate Leth, artist Brittney Williams, and colorist Megan Wilson’s buffet of fun, relatable characters,

Dean Parker (Louis Gossett, Jr.) manages to keep these disorderly boys in check, with the exception of Billy Tepper (Sean Astin) and his friends; Joey (Wil Wheaton), Snuffy (Keith Coogan), Ricardo (George Perez), Hank (T.E.

Comics: Marvel's Latest Summer 2015 Teases Revisits The Infinity Gauntlet

Another day, another Marvel teaser! We're still no closer to figuring out what these mean however, and this latest one doesn't really offer up many new clues. It is of course based on the classic The Infinity Gauntlet six-part storyline which was published in 1991 and written by Jim Starlin and drawn by George Perez and Ron Lim. Dustin Weaver is responsible for the artwork below, and while many believe these have something to do with Secret Wars (perhaps showing how the events played out on alternate Earths), that's little more than speculation right now.

Con Etiquette

We’re going to talk for a minute about convention etiquette. Apparently, we have to. By the end of the year, I will have attended a personal record number of conventions, and there are a lot of commonalities. In fact, As I write this, I am in Pittsburgh, sitting on the floor of the Monroeville Convention Center. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do.
