Guess the haiku!
This is a great-looking Sonic diorama, make no mistake. It’s just… why is there a trailer? The inappropriately energetic rock music, the silly effects, the weird-as-hell vibration — ugh.
Captain America, the Hulk, Fantastic Four… If you read superhero comics, you’ve probably liked a character created or co-created by Jack Kirby. He made the battles of superheroes like Thor feel larger than life but he also grew up fighting in the streets of New York City’s gritty Lower East Side neighbourhood. And he made an awesome, rarely-seen comic about it.
The writer who teams up two of the world’s most popular superheroes every month says that Superman probably plays a lot of iPhone games. Batman? Civilisation all the way, with old school board games in the mix, too. But a next-next-next-generation console being used by a supervillain might prove to be more than either the Man of Steel or the Dark Knight can handle.
Maybe it was portrayal of the Lord of the Dreaming as a mopey loner, ambling through the universe’s subconscious. Or the idea that the personifications of Destiny, Death and Destruction were a squabbling yet loving family like yours. Or the way that rotating art teams seemed to capture different facets of Sandman’s fictional universe. No matter why you liked it, Sandman was great. Then the seminal comics series was gone. It’s back now, in a new miniseries full of reminders of why you loved it in the first place.
We don’t want to ruin any of the surprises in the new Batman: Arkham Origins and Batman: Arkham Origins: Blackgate games today — not if you don’t want to be spoiled. But if you do want to know about the very exciting future of the franchise that both games are teasing, keep reading. That was a spoiler warning. Got it? Ready?
Why would the World’s Greatest Detective need to do endorsements? He’s rich, right?
Watch and remember how cool Superman used to be. Yes, yes, we know: Superman seems like he’s always been corny, to some folks anyway. And, if you’re reading the current iteration of the character in DC Comics, Kal-El definitely feels like he’s had better days. But this Zach Snyder-directed video done for the character’s 75 anniversary will remind you of how awe-inspiring Superman can be and has been throughout the decades. I love how the art style morphs to match the styles of the Fleisher cartoons, Curt Swan artwork and various animated Superman interpretations. Superman can be awesome. He’ll get back there. Someday.
Sure, you all laugh at Aquaman now. But when his non-extant movie crosses over with a beloved Pixar franchse, Arthur Curry will show you. He’ll show you all.
Mainstream comics efforts live or die on their ability to spin up fantastic new worlds and keep the stories within going for as long as possible. But too much familiarity is the enemy of reader loyalty. Nothing makes folks stop bring comics faster than coming across something they feel like they’ve already seen.
