This week, I have a great conversation with Michael Jan Friedman, an accomplished comics writer who has moved into creating prose books. He has a new Kickstarter project for his latest Young Adult novel called I Am TheSalamander. We talk about the book as well as digital comics and the popular reboot trend. You can find out more and contribute to the creation of I Am The Salamander at this link. Also, you can find many of his other works at the Crazy8Press website.
Then everything wraps up with the latest “News & Previews!” Don’t miss it!
You may have noticed that Beware the Batman wasn’t on your list of shows this week. That’s because the show isn’t on Cartoon Network anymore. Weird, huh? Beware the Batman began airing just over three months ago, and already it’s been yanked.
I know some fans don’t like weekly comics. “I have to go every week to my comics shop! I don’t have time for that!” a friend told me once. I responded, “But that’s the idea!”
At the recent New York Comic Con, DC Comics announced that a new year-long weekly comic starring Batman and his Bat-family called Batman Eternal is coming in April, 2004. Check out this link for more information here at MajorSpoilers!
Late last week it came out that Zack Synder and company would be filming a few of their first scenes from the upcoming Man of Steel: Batman Boogaloo during the halftime of a football game. Both a description of what took place and a video have been uploaded to the Internet for us all to scrutinize over.
When Zack Snyder announced the sequel to Man of Steel, fans didn’t realize how far along the pre-production process was. We know Ben Affleck has been cast as Batman, with Henry Cavill returning as Superman, but what we didn’t know was parts of the film will begin shooting this weekend in Los Angeles.
DC Comics was out in full force at the New York Comic Con, and we’ve taken all their panels, and announcements, and give you just the bits you need, on one handy article you can take with you wherever you go.
As many of you may know, Mark Hamill will not be returning to voice the Joker in the upcoming Arkham Origins video game. Troy Baker will be stepping in to give life to Joker and fans were given a taste of his talents as he read lines from The Killing Joke during a panel. Voice talent fans, Arkham series fans, and Batman fans in general will not want to miss this.
There have been a few characters that have been strong enough to carry a weekly book – even if that characters appears in four regular monthly titles. Wolverine, Superman, and Spider-Man are all over the place, but apparently DC Comics thinks there’s not enough Batman in our lives, because the company announced a new weekly Batman series that arrives in the Spring.
