Bestselling writer Ales Kot (ZERO, THE SURFACE) and artist Ricardo Lopez Ortiz (ZERO) will launch a new story arc in their ongoing mythical noir series WOLF this January.
When it comes to supernatural/horror characters, it seems many of them never go out of style. However, certain groups rise up to the forefront, such as vampires. For a while, everywhere you looked, there were vampires. Teen vampires, older vampires, female vampires, even kid vampires. Now it seems that werewolves are the new vampires. Syfy has their series Bitten, DC’s Vertigo has a great comic Wolf Moon from Cullen Bunn and Jeremy Haun, and now Image has Wolf. What I like about all these is that each one seems to take a different spin on the werewolf legend, and that’s
Press Release Bestselling writer Ales Kot (ZERO, MATERIAL) and artist Matt Taylor (ZERO) team up to launch an all-new fantasy crime-noir series with WOLF #1, coming this July.
The sad fact of the matter is that we live in a world where being exposed to radioactivity will kill you rather than allow you to grow 50 feet tall and shoot energy beams from your eyes. But what if we didn’t? What if we lived in the crazy world of comic book superheroes? Who, then, would the heroes of this world be? We could certainly guess, but fortunately we don’t have to. Since comics are always pretty specific about who gets to become a superhero. The signs are there, you just have to put it all together.
Moonstone Books has announced it is bringing back Airboy in an all new series written by Chuck Dixon. It’s all part of Air Fighters #1, that hits stands in January 2010. Flying in Airboyâ€™s squadron youâ€™ll see Sky Wolf, Black Angel, Flying Dutchman, Bald Eagle, Flying Fool, Iron Ace and Captain Midnight as they take on the original Axis of Evil in the air, on the ground and anywhere else their fight for freedom takes them.

It’s certainly a possibility as Variety is reporting Jon Favreau is casting his eyes toward Emily Blunt to play the Black Widow in the upcoming Iron Man 2 film. Emily Blunt has emerged as the frontrunner to play Natasha Romanoff in the “Iron Man” sequel. She’s a Soviet superspy who doubles as Black Widow, a beauty in a skintight black costume enhanced by high-tech weaponry. She’s done some comedy and a few big dramas (Charlie Wilson’s War, The Jane Austen Book Club), and will appear in the upcoming Wolf Man movie from Universal. Marvel has issued a firm “no comment”
Crossovers. Whyâ€™d it have to be crossovers? Crossovers are one of those occurrences in comics where a character from one title appears in the pages of another title and vice versa.Â Generally, these events happen in the pages of titles from large publishers, and is a way to remind readers that the companyâ€™s universe is big and organic. Invincible, on the other hand, works perfectly well as a stand-alone universe in and of itself, so when characters begin to make more than a referential appearance in the pages, I get a bit concerned. Especially when the crossover features characters created
I feel confident when I say this, I think we’ve found a new logo for Matthew’s Rapid-Fire Roundup of Reviews.Â And I think you’ll agree after taking a peek at the covers for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy issue from Marvel.Â The issue kicks off a whole new story arc for the team called War of Kings.
I know there areÂ Major Spoilerites who have been decrying Robert Kirkman’s shipping schedule (you know the one that is never on time).Â Well, Kirkman promises he’s going to change in 2009, by getting his titles out on time.
I guess Robert Kirkman has too many hours in the day, because Image comics has announced the Kirkman, Jason Howard Astounding Wolf-Man will turn into a monthly title this July. “Frankly, I just couldn’t stay patient,” ASTOUNDING WOLF-MAN co-creator and writer Robert Kirkman said. “Over the past year THE ASTOUNDING WOLF-MAN has become one of my favorite books to write and, even more so, seeing the pages pour in from Jason has made me crave MORE! With the impending shocker we’ve got coming in issue 7, we decided to switch the book from once every sixty days to every thirty!
