Here at Major Spoilers, we strive to bring you the best in news and reviews from the broad spectrum of the pop culture world. With all the excitement and speculation over the past month about a Justice League movie, as well as the Major Spoilers Podcast in which Stephen, Matthew, Rodrigo and Rob discussed how they would do a Justice League movie, staff writer Jimmy just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share his ideal Justice League movie – an homage to the classic Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis and Kevin Maguire run.
The writer of Penguin: Pain and Prejudice has set his sights on a new villain… Jonathan Crane, aka The Scarecrow! Major Spoilers got a chance to interview Gregg Hurwitz recently about the title, and now takes a look at how his writing blends with long-time Bat-artist David Finch in The Dark Knight #10!
Gregg Hurwitz, bestselling novelist and writer of Penguin: Pain and Prejudice, has taken over the writing on The Dark Knight starting with issue #10 (reviewed by Major Spoilers here). Major Spoilers’ very own Jimmy had a chance to speak with Mr. Hurwitz this past week, and got some solid information about his creative process with artist David Finch, and a pretty firm hint as to plans for the next villain after Scarecrow to get “The Hurwitz Treatment”
All good things must come to an end, and that includes Mark Waid’s fantastic titles Irredeemable and Incorruptible. Whereas Irredeemable’s end seemed a natural progression, Incorruptible has been somewhat rushed and chaotic. Can Mark Waid bring it all together in this finale? This Major Spoilers staff reviewer finds out for you, right after the jump!
Talia al-Ghul has been revealed to be the mysterious Leviathan that Batman has been fighting, and now Bruce and Damian are being targeted by assassins hired by the jilted lover and her organization. Batman Incorporated hasn’t really been seen as a part of the continuity since the relaunch, so everyone wants to know how and where this Second Wave title will fit in.
The finale is here! Whether or not you’ve stuck with this series in the long run, if you started it and dropped it part-way through, you ABSOLUTELY should pick this issue up. This is the perfect conclusion to the Mark Waid-penned series, ending in a way that was both unexpected yet, in retrospect, was foreshadowed in some particularly devious and meta ways.
The Night of the Owls has come to the world of Catwoman and Spark, as they try to poach from the Penguin on the same night a Talon tries to take the life of Oswald Cobblepot.
Take a simulator ride, a 3-D movie (the good kind), and a roller coaster. Mash them together, and what do you get? The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man ride, a staple of Universal Studios: Islands of Adventure’s “Marvel Super Hero Island” area.
My first comic book convention ever was going to C2E2 last year, and during that trip I spent a lot of time hanging around Gail Simone’s table and chatting with her and her husband, Scott. Coming back to the convention this year as a reporter for Major Spoilers, I was hoping to find some time to interview Gail, especially given how much I enjoy her work in comics. Gail is ALWAYS busy at conventions, considering how passionate a fanbase she has, but I was able to sit down with her for a brief interview.
Chris Burnham arrived early to the panel and was working on a commissioned Deathstroke which he was inking as I took my seat. As he worked on it fellow artist-panelists Kevin Maguire and David Finch arrived. Unlike the other DC panels I attended, this was very casual and unregulated, with questions from the audience being shouted out informally rather than waiting for Ian Sattler to arrive with a microphone. The panel was moderated by Mark Chiarello who asked some great questions of the creators to elicit educational and entertaining responses.
C2E2 is finally over, and Jimmy files this report on the events that took place on Sunday.
Major Spoilers reporter, Jimmy is at C2E2 this weekend, and filed a report of his activities on Saturday.
