Christian comic book publisher Kingstone Media has stepped out of its comfort zone recently with their release of the graphic novel version of faith-based horror film The Remaining. Although the company has printed original stories before outside of its historical and Biblical accounts, the move pushes the proverbial envelope even further. Casey La Scala's vision of the Rapture differs from what we've ever seen before through the entertaining, yet relatively sanitized, Left Behind and Revelation Road movies.
It's a truly horrific vision of a world crumbling quickly in the aftermath of a supernatural event that ushers in seven years of terrible Tribulation and unleashes a dark presence bent on eliminating any glimmer of spiritual hope that arises out of the ashes of Armageddon. Writer Roland Mann and artist Kyle Hotz's handiwork perfectly accents and extends in illustrated form what we're served on the silver screen.
Roland Mann really doesn't »

While we’re still waiting to see DC and Warner Bros.’ Justice League assemble on the big screen, over on the CW’s Arrow, they’re already building an impressive roster of comic book heroes (and villains). What started out as a modern and grounded take on the Green Arrow mythos has grown to include characters like The Huntress, Deadshot, Amanda Waller, and Deathstroke (just to name only a few)
But that was only the beginning. Premiering alongside Arrow season 3 this fall is The Flash, which will star Grant Gustin as Barry Allen – last seen getting struck by lightening and doused in chemicals last season on Arrow – in ...

We’ve seen a lot of promotional material for Star Wars Rebels already, and with the new ‘in-canon’ animated show’s premiere now less than three weeks away, Disney and Lucasfilm have dropped a trio of new TV spots, which we have for you here…

It has been clearly indicated that "Arrow" star Stephen Amell, "Flash" star Grant Gustin and the world of the shows they inhabit are Not a part of the DC Cinematic Universe and its soon-to-be take on the Justice League.
However, that does not mean they won't be forming a Justice League of their own. Amell appeared at Fan Expo Canada last weekend and revealed to Cbr that The CW network is essentially forming its own take on a DC hero team-up:
"We are creating a Justice League on TV for us. I don't think there is a logistical reality to us participating in the feature side. That being said, I never wanted to have to feel like the show was justified, just because we participated in the movie. I don't think my character would participate on the cinematic side. What's that saying? Is it six seasons and a movie? Our show right now has me, »

Former Green Lantern and current Justice League writer Geoff Johns sat down for an in-depth interview with IGN, released today on their website. At the conclusion of Forever Evil, iconic Superman villain Lex Luthor joined the team, apparently sincere about reforming himself. "We're about to do a storyline this October called The Amazo Virus that really delves into Luthor trying to put the past behind him," Johns explained. "But because of all the things he's done, the past catches up with him." The storyline was previously revealed in solicitations, and will be the first issue illustrated by series-newcomer, Jason Fabok -- a fan-favourite artist on many of the Batman titles for several years (including Batman: The Dark Knight and more recently, Batman Eternal). "I can't wait for people to see his pencils. I tend to work with the same artists a lot, because there's nothing more important than a collaborator when you're working in comics, »
We're less than a month away from the season three debut of The CW's Arrow, starring Stephen Amell. Never one to shy away from talking up the show on social media, Amell shared his enthusiasm with fans attending Fan Expo Canada 2014. The successful superhero series star talked about the consequences of the season two finale, how it affected Starling City and its citizens, and also how it opens the doors for new heroic and villainous characters alike. There was also plenty of relationship talk concerning Amell's Oliver Queen and Emily Bett Rickards' hot hacker Felicity Smoak. Oh, and rather than dance around the question of whether the TV show heroes would ever cross over to appear in WB's feature films, Amell answered it straightforwardly. Hit the jump to see what he had to say. The fine folks over at Cbr have put together Amell's comments from the fan event, »

Akiva Goldsman’s been trying to make a “Titans,” or “Teen Titans,” as they were originally called, movie for forever. In 2007, it was even announced that Goldsman, Academy-Award winning writer of “A Beautiful Mind” and director of 2014’s “Winter's Tale,” would be producing a live-action “Titans” movie. That obviously never happened, but Goldsman hasn't given up on the project, and now TNT is about to greenlight a pilot that could turn into a show. “The Teen Titans” began in 1964. They were essentially a super-team of sidekicks in a group that was like the Justice League Junior. The group were comprised of Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, Wonder Girl and Speedy, respective sidekicks to heroes Batman, Flash, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Green Arrow. That novelty changed and gained respectability in the 1980s with the Marv Wolfman/George Perez comics team that cast them as misfit teens/20-somethings living bitterly in the shadows of their wards. »

Back in November 2013, Arrow star Stephen Amell posted two comic book covers on his Facebook page that featured Green Arrow with the rest of the Justice League, which lead many fans to believe that he may be joining the DC Comics movie universe. While that notion was quickly debunked, it was speculated again this summer that the actor may be announced as part of the Justice League cast at Comic-Con, which was also shot down by the actor himself. However, Stephen Amell recently appeared at Fan Expo Canada last weekend, where he revealed that The CW is creating their own Justice League on TV.

With less than a month to go before its one-hour premiere on The Disney Channel, Lucasfilm has released a selection of new images from the upcoming series Star Wars Rebels, which you can check out here courtesy of EW…
Meanwhile, executive producer Simon Kinberg has spoken about how Star Wars Rebels will integrate into Disney’s new, cohesive Star Wars canon, as well as teasing possible connections to J.J. Abrams’ eagerly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII:
“It’s a very integrated process, there’s real communication between all the filmmakers because we’re all part of a larger timeline. here is absolutely communication and integration between the different stories. We are very aware of what they’re doing in VII, and we also have to click into place with Episode IV. There are characters, vehicles, imagery that are introduced in the show before we’ve ever seen them in the movies, »

While the past decade has challenged the old way of thinking – that movies tend to put the talent and impact of TV to shame – that belief seems alive and well in the realm of comic book adaptations. With Marvel’s endless march of superhero blockbusters and DC’s budding big screen Justice League universe, it takes the star of Arrow to remind fans that for those desperately waiting to see DC Comics’ famed team in action, it’s Warner Bros.’ TV side that’s already delivering the goods.
There’s plenty of reasons why comic book properties aren’t seen as ‘legitimate mainstream hits’ until they top the box office, from fan hopes for the ...

It’s looking all but certain that DC Comics’ various TV offerings will be kept entirely separate from Warner Bros.’ DC Cinematic Universe, but it seems that Stephen Amell is more than happy to be part of The CW’s expanding DC world, with the Arrow star stating at Fan Expo Canda (via Cbr) that “we are creating a Justice League on TV for us.”
Now, before you get overly excited about a possible Justice League TV series, Amell is in fact referring to The CW’s rapid expansion of its Arrow universe, with spin-off series The Flash set to premiere next month, and numerous DC characters being added to the casts of both shows, including the likes of Firestorm (Robbie Amell) and The Atom (Brandon Routh).

Ray Fawkes is the horror guru who’s been behind Constantine for a good while now, and this week DC released its Future’S End issue—a fun one-off that takes place five years in John Constantine’s future but plays out like any of his present supernatural encounters, albeit with a new companion holding the regular humans at bay while our “gutter mage” battles Doctor Fate. It’s a very enjoyable romp, particularly when the Auditorium of Anubis is conjured up; the Egyptian god’s sleek, horrific features are rendered with care by one Juan Ferreyra, guest artist on this issue (me? biased? Nahhhh). A few weeks back I was able to speak with Fawkes about John Constantine and his affiliation with DC’s darker titles, from Batman to Justice League Dark.
Famous Monsters. I’m very excited to meet you. I think you’re fabulous. You put your »

Recently, a rumor came to light that claims Warner Bros. is searching its catalog of comics characters to find something that may help the studio emulate the success of this year's Guardians of the Galaxy from Marvel Studios. That rumor claims that the comic book team they're looking at are the 31st century Legion of Super-Heroes, a relatively obscure DC Comics team with more than a passing connection to the Man of Steel, Superman. This got us thinking about more obscure DC characters that could make for good movies, because while the Legion isn't as widely known as DC Comics teams like the Justice League or the Teen Titans, they have appeared in live action in addition to having had their very own animated series. These five choices? Not so...

New seasons of Arrow and The Flash have already begun...in comic book form that is!

Which of these do you like most? »
Everyone seems to be copying the Marvel Cinematic Universe model these days, with Warner Bros. and DC Comics paving the way for their Justice League ensemble by setting up a number of superhero cameos in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Universal Pictures is relaunching a new inter-connected franchise with their library of classic creatures and monsters. It seems even Marvel's parent company, Walt Disney Studios, is following in their footsteps with Star Wars: Episode VII, which will launch a new trilogy along with a series of Star Wars spin-off adventures.
Disney CFO Jay Rasulo revealed today that the studio is in fact "mirroring" Marvel's path, but they plan on moving Star Wars along much faster.
"We are doing what we do for our Disney franchises ... with Star Wars, and it is mirroring Marvel, but we already know the path, so it's going to go faster, smoother, with the same goals. »
