Boom! Studios and Twentieth Century Consumer Products have announced the upcoming launch of Planet of the Apes: Ursus, a new series from writer David F. Walker (Power Man & Iron Fist, War for the Planet of the Apes) and artist Christopher Mooneyham (Five Ghosts), which follows the rise through the ranks of the ape who has hated (and feared) mankind the most, including what first brought him to the Forbidden Zone.

“I’m a lifelong Planet of the Apes fan, and when I was a kid, General Ursus terrified me,” says Walker of the character who first debuted in 1970’s Beneath the Planet of the Apes. “He came right out and said, ‘The only good human is a dead human,’ and that gave me nightmares.

In Luke Cage #1, Cage leaves New York behind for New Orleans, to attend the funeral of Dr. Noah Burstein – the man who gave him his unbreakable skin. Whilst there, the Hero for Hire discovers that Burstein repeated

Ask Marvel Returns For Its Second Season

Capitalizing on the recent success of its Marvel 101 videos and an informative piece focusing on Captain Marvel, the House of Ideas have launched the second season of its entertaining web series, Ask Marvel. So, if you ever wanted to ask an actor, writer or artist working on a Marvel property a question, no matter how random it may be, now is your chance.

The first episode, which can be viewed at the top, sees guest Alfre Woodard of Netflix’s Luke Cage fame welcome a line of questions from inquisitive fans.

#BlackComicsMonth Diversity in Comics Panel (My view from the back row)

Hosted by the energetic Miz Caramel Vixen, the founder of Vixenvarsity.com, the #BlackComicsMonth Diversity in Comics panel featured a wide variety of panelists from different backgrounds, ethnicities, and sexualities. They also work in vastly different comics genres from Mildred Louis writing and drawing a Magical Girl webcomic with women of color called Agents of the Realm to David F. Walker, who directed a documentary about the blaxploitation genre and currently writes Cyborg for DC Comics and much more. One of the panelists, Mikki Kendall, only recently broke into comics with the Swords of Sorrow: Lady Rawhide/Miss Fury one-shot and is more well-known for her pieces about intersectional feminism for XoJane, The Guardian, and others as well as prose fiction.

This year’s guests range from Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto to the casts and writers of upcoming genre TV shows like Sword of Shannara, Ash vs. the Evil Dead, and Legends of Tomorrow and of course, a stacked comics creator lineup from living legends like Chris Claremont and Brian K.

Shaft Writer Rips The Idea Of A Comedic Shaft Reboot In Angry Tirade

Not everything needs a reboot. Particularly when you are a film that already has endured a remake. So when news started to circulate that Gordon Parks. Shaft was inspiring a reboot . even after Samuel L. Jackson slipped into the role for a remake . several people became enraged. But the anger and frustration carried by David F. Walker came with extra significance. Walker has been writing Shaft stories for Dynamite Comics, as well as the novel Shaft.s Revenge, and has a close connection to the badass character, in his mind.

It only got worse from there. Walker showed real passion for

Writer of 'Shaft' Comic + 1st Authorized Novel Since the 1970s, Blasts New Line's "Comedic" Reboot Plans

After I shared my post on New Line's reboot of "Shaft," but one with more comedic tones, bringing on "Black-ish" creator Kenya Barris to pen the script, I received several messages asking if I would get David F. Walker's reaction to the news. I didn't initially immediately even think of it, but of course, now it's only logical. Walker has been working on comics for years, but only recently started to get attention thanks to his critically acclaimed run writing "Shaft" for Dynamite Comics.
