NBC is already at work on pilots for the upcoming year, and one that just might make the cut is The Cape.Â Instead of going the Heroes route and taking a look at the super powered beings, The Cape looks at an everyday Joe, who dons a mask to fight crime.
It centers on a former cop framed for a crime he didn’t commit who becomes the Cape, a masked hero, to clear his name and reunite with his son. Set in Jefferson City — a Los Angeles-type city where corrupt private industries are taking over everything.
The Cape is currently in active development.Â What say you The Legion of Major Spoilers, will a show like this fly, or sink?Â Shout out in the comment section below, and maybe, just maybe NBC Uni will be take your comments to heart.
Woe is the comic fan who bemoans the loss of Paul Dini in Detective Comics and refuses to jump on a book featuring a strong female lead, for that comic book reader is going to miss out on one heck of an issue.
Once again, it all returns to hot girls and boobies.Â I couldn’t leave the female heroes out of the week, and wrapping it all up in this installment is a piece by Paul Sizer.
Warm up for this week’s Warren Ellis REMAKE/REMODEL project.
This week: Domino Lady, a (very lame) wealthy socialite whose lawyer father gets shot and killed, so she dons a backless evening gown and a domino mask, gets her gun and goes out to fight crime. Best part: when she gets money from wealthy bad guys, she takes her cut and gives the rest to charity!
Attempting to make her less lame will be a challenge, but I had this initial image in my head, and needed to get it out before working on my actual concept. So, GO DECO!
Freehand MX for the original vector art, PhotoShop for the shading, textures and color adjustment. 1 hour.
If Paul’s name sounds familiar, it’s because he did that awesome Kick Nazi Ass! piece from a few weeks ago.
From Rorschach to Freddy Krueger, Jackie Earle Haley is taking on the role of the the gruesome Freddy Krueger in the reboot of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.
â€œLooking at his performance in ‘Watchmen,â€™ hereâ€™s a guy playing a character under a mask yet you feel tremendous empathy for him,â€ said Bayer of the actor. â€œAnd in Nightmare,â€™ he is going to be under prosthetic make-up. You have to feel something for the character. The greatest villains are multi-dimensional and I think he will bring that to the character.â€
After the climactic explosion that ended last issue, and the announcement DC was canceling the Robin title in February, the fate of Tim Drake really seemed to be in question.Â Fortunately, comic books run like the Saturday morning serials of yesteryear, the reports of Timâ€™s death have been greatly exaggerated.Â That doesnâ€™t mean Robinâ€™s life wonâ€™t be shaken, in fact this issue might be the event that changes everything…again!
