COMICS MEET TV with BUFFY, SMALLVILLE Season 11 comics, ANGEL COMICS

You HAVE heard of continuing old TV-SERIES in the comic-book format, yes?...

They've done it with everything from BUFFY & ANGEL to JERICHO SEASON 3 and 4 & STAR TREK SESON 4 so far.....
..............
 
How popular are these continuations?.....Lets just say every single 1st issue in every one has gone to multiple printings [not a usual thing in sequential art] due to demand.....
...........
 
And THIS ONE [below] makes even MORE SENSE to continue...
 
DC COMICS presents SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 #1 ...SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 #5 is the 1st APP of a SMALLVILLE BATMAN!!!

Mark Millar: The Mildly Sneaky Guy Tries To Take Over The Comic Industry With...Egads!...Great Writing...

 

******imageLogo5smlr**** imageLogo5smlr****imageLogo5smlr******

 There is one Mr Mark Millar who is scampering underfoot us all, pulling strings which unbeknownst to those who seldom look down, are slowly and purposefully moving towards a clamoring thunderstrike which will rock....and roll out the New Age Of Storytelling With Images...

How he is doing it all is unclear at this time, though he has been spotted frolicking with all sorts within the comic industry, carefully constructing The End....& The Beginning of his domination of the contemporay part of our medium...

Should we stop him?....Could we stop him?....

Take a LOOK AT these tidy bits of recent evidence.....

********************************************

SECRET SERVICE #1 (MR)
MARVEL COMICS
(W) Mark Millar (A/CA) Dave Gibbons

From The Writer Of Kick-Ass And The Artist Of Watchmen Comes A Collaboration Decades In The Making....

 Says Writer Mark Millar:....."Secret Service Is The Ramifications Of [How] America Is Struggling On The World Stage, Funding Is Being Seriously Undercut To Balance The Books And Some People Are Trying Their Best To Take Advantage Of The Fragile Global Situation. The Hero And Sidekick Guys Who Lead The Book Are, I Think, The Best Characters I've Written....
[[[[Product Update (1/9/2012): The price has changed from $3.99 to the new price of $2.99.]]]  [see 'kiddies'*....popularity breeds SAVINGS! ;o]

WE SAY......

Almost EVERY Mark Millar project over the last 5 YEARS has lead to 'instant hit' status [see SUPERCROOKS #1 below], so it's no surprise this should do well....

Add to that, the mixture of a very solid, legendary [thanks to WATCHMEN] artist Dave Gibbons [fresh from a TON of publicity about the upcoming WATCHMEN PREQUELS [....coming sometime this year]], a QUASI-POLITICAL PLOT, the 'name-recognition' of a HIGH RANKING SECURITY CLASS [protecting the prez], and it becomes a very worthy read!

********************************************

SUPERCROOKS #1 (OF 4) (MR)
MARVEL COMICS
(W) Mark Millar (A/CA) Leinil Francis Yu

When The Market Is Flooded With Competition And The Authorities Are Always On Your Tail, What's An All-American Supervillain To Do? Go To Spain, Of Course! From The Writer Who Brought You Kick-Ass And The Artist Of Secret Invasion Comes A New Series About A Team Of Superpowered Ne'er-Do-Wells Looking To Pull Off One Last Heist In The Land Of Bullfighting And Delicious Churros.
32 Pgs./Mature ...$3.99
Product Update (1/9/2012): The price has changed from $3.99 to the new price of $2.99 [see 'kiddies'*....Who says Mark Millar doesn't have a heart**... ;o]

* 'kiddies' in this case refers to 'kids@heart' as ALL of MARK [ "I wrote 'Kick A$$' !" ] MILLAR'S projects [...and there's MANY of 'em!...] are for 'mature-er readers than one might expect....'

** We here @ Image Collections know PERFECTLY WELL that MARK [ ...."I wrote 'CIVIL WAR' where a bunch of heroes heroically beat-up another bunch of heroes for being heroic unheroically..."] MILLAR really DOES love children, cares for developing future comic readers, enjoys the occasional non-threatening HUG, & would probably deny the existence of an intergalactic agenda advocating the expulsion of the label of ALL-AGES from sequential artistry if one ever became sentiently interested in revealing itself, even IF he isn't writing peachy-clean, warm &  fuzzy, kid-friendly fare......[ wow, our cutting-edge sappily written satire never gets through, though it sure gets old pretty quick when compared to the number of lost readers since the start of this paragraph :o)....Shy sharply-witted sheepishness, it seems, is NOTHING when compared to the powerful lobbying of the DARK SIDE that is reality!.....Besides, Mark Millar DID care tremendously when writing his exceptional 'youthly' fun-filled readings back in 'SUPERMAN ADVENTURES', didn't he?....] 

 WE SAY:

As noted above [...before the wierd stuff...], Mark Millar's selected projects tend to consist of high quality writing with top notch art and yet still somehow always end up under-the-radar and in most cases with each issue going through multiple printings [...that STILL sell out].

In this case, Leinil [NEW AVENGERS] Francis Yu will be providing the visuals, as he did with Millar's SHAZAM-like 'SUPERIOR' last year, meaning there's a solid case the creative team will gel even futher in this go-around....

********************************************

MARK MILLAR's OTHER Dark Past Scribbling Has Produced:...[Along With Our Own Image Collections [I.C.] Rating out of 5 STARS.....]

................

         1. CIVIL WAR           2. WANTED          3. OLD MAN LOGAN     4.NEMESIS      5. The ULTIMATES     6.ULTIMATES II      7.ULTIMATE F.F.   

1.----CIVIL WAR.....a messy, yet tight MARVEL crossover that left the MARVEL UNIVERSE in a tattered, but 'stately' state of being worldly worthy again...  --- I.C. Rating of ***** 5/5

2.------WANTED....slightly like the A.Jolie movie, a deeply darkened look at a geek gone black, suddenly pushed into a past unknown, instantly he's the MOST WANTED!!! --- I.C. Rating of ***** 4.5/5

3.------OLD MAN LOGAN....no one would believe it, a passive cowardly WOLVERINE, unprepared for a trip across a barren future U.S.A!  --- I.C. Rating of **** 4/5

4.------NEMESIS......This twice-as-rich anti-BATMAN epitomises the game-playing psychopathic loser who wins only if society can be broken! --- I.C. Rating of ***** 5/5  

5.------THE ULTIMATES....Pity has no place in the political 'superfication' of America even when it gets in the way of its own Avengers-like ULTIMATE COMICS-line members!  --- I.C. Rating of ***** 5/5

6.------FANTASTIC FOUR & the ULTIMATE COMICS' FF....Introducing wild science and the MARVEL ZOMBIES, both tiltles dripped SCI-FI notions into every scene! --- I.C. Rating of **** 4/5 & --- I.C. Rating of ***** 4/5

7.-------The AUTHORITY.....He followed Legendary writer Warren Ellis on a First-Generational team of anti-heroes caught up in uncaring for the sacrality of our human realities--- I.C. Rating of ***** 4.5/5 

Now it's YOUR TURN to tell us what YOU think.....Is Mark Millar still on the side of the angels?...

                                                      ********************************* 

..The MUCH-acclaimed [and Mark Millar-written] smash MARVEL UNIVERSE series which poses 'police state' questions about the implications of imposing heroic figures at large, the 2006 title 'CIVIL WAR', simply one of the best selling [for good reasons :o] collections in MARVEL's [and Image Collections] history....

...is NOW a great 'CIVIL WAR' NOVEL [...hint: LOTS MORE words, LOT fewer pictures..] with both HARDCOVER & SOFTCOVER [...soon] versions!

WHO GIVES A HOOT ABOUT READING 'BATMAN'??....YOU WILL, and SOON!!!

Upcoming FREE SPECIAL EVENTS @ Image Collections
Saturday June 2nd Bread & Honey - FREE COMIC CON
     
Saturday  June 2nd

Bread & Honey - Come DRAW with us before, during & after the B&H Parade

 

Simply, If you aren't....

.....READ 'BATMAN'!!!......

Yes, there ARE 52 new DC titles after the relaunch of the entire DC Universe [...plenty to select your likes from...], but only ONE TITLE has the EXCESSIVELY WARRANTED MOMENTUM to propel nearly EVERY ISSUE into multiple printings....

DC_Reboot_Batman_1Only one title, 'BATMAN'[...the singular titled, unlike 'BATMAN & ROBIN' or 'DETECTIVE COMICS', which ALSO has BAT-'READER'S HEAT' attached to it...], can claim enough fame from it's story-content that other creators are itching with bated breath [not a spelling error, look it up...maybe u(sic) learned something today--strange place 2 have done it; this site...:o] to play in writer SCOTT SNYDER's BAT-World!...

Worth the HYPE, 'BATMAN' has been out-pacing the JIM [X-men] LEE-penciled new 'JUSTICE LEAGUE' title, a feat unfathomed by many considering 'The Mighty Jim' has had over 22 years of super-stardom verses SCOTT SNYDER's virtual ascension in the last year-plus of regular BATMAN work!...

Helping, and by no means any lesser of talent, current 'BATMAN' artist and long-time SPAWN penciler GREG CAPULLO, has the envious position of being one of the first to read the latest 'BATMAN' scripts as they continue to plunge ransack into 'BATMAN: THE NIGHT OF THE OWLS', a crossover with enough 'yin-yang'-ing to keep readers at bay, and at odds with each other....

To say things are looking up for DC's Dark Knight Detective would be a hopeless under-statement, and by OWLS-wing or by crook, 'BATMAN's hooked us as surely now 'The Dark Knight Rises', and with extra movie mileage this is one 'DC-NEW-52' title that'll be hovering with IMAGE COMIC's 'SAGA', atop the BESTSELLERS charts long after DARK HORSE's Star-Wars-Origin 'DAWN OF THE JEDI' and MARVEL's 'AVENGERS vs X-MEN' have rocked comics......

So START READING 'BATMAN' TODAY, as THEN, as spoilers-be-vanquished, we can discuss it, as your friends will want to, 'cause, '"birds of a feather...." you know.... :o)

PS......Snyder's first creator-owned ongoing series, from VERTIGO [a sophisticated critic's-choice off-shoot line of DC COMICS], is AMERICAN VAMPIRE, still going [and picking up LOTS of new readers!] today!  Stephen King is a fan also, and worked with him on it!....

 “This should be agony. I should be a mass of aching muscle - broken, spent,
unable to move. And, were I an older man, I surely would ... ... but I'm a man
of thirty - of twenty again. The rain on my chest is a baptism - I'm born again
... ”
― Frank Miller, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

-----If I tell you, will you let met go?......- You bet, partner. [...]......- You promised!.....- Nope. I said "you bet."...words by Scott Syder

BATMAN FLYS WITH THE OWLs....

'BATMAN' [...DC COMICS MOST POPULAR RELAUNCHED 'NEW-52' MONTHLY TITLE...] FIND OUT WHY EVERYONE 'GIVES A HOOT'...

Creators: (W) Scott Snyder (A) Greg Capullo & Various (CA) Greg Capullo

Solicitation: Broken and beaten, Bruce Wayne has retreated from Gotham City -- the city of Owls -- to Wayne Manor. But no place is safe, because the Court is about to strike at the heart of city, and nothing will ever be the same. Be there for the start of the battle for Gotham City's soul ... and the prelude to "The Night of the Owls." And in the first chapter of a new backup story, learn the secret history of The Court of Owls -- as well as the secrets of Gotham City and the Wayne family! 

Appeal: The evolution of the Dark Knight’s flagship title under Eisner Award-winner Snyder and fan-favorite artist Capullo have gripped readers from its first issue as part of the New 52......

 With the buildup to the much-anticipated "The Night of the Owls" reaching its crescendo, its the PERFECT TIME to read DC's BATMAN....

AVENGERS ASSEMBLE @ Image Collections

 

@@@@@  ALSO...............
 
WE WILL BE ANNOUNCING A SPECIAL EVENT like no other COMING UP @ THE END OF APRIL.............STAY TUNED!!!!!!!!...........

-----Nick Fury: "Lasers, powered flight, phenomenal shielding, and
  sensors that could find a Democrat in Texas. You put all this effort into
  coming up with this stuff, and now you're going to hand it over to my tech
  guys? I mean, why?..."
-----Tony Stark: "I know what that stuff can do, Fury, and... I don't know... I just
  felt like giving something back, doing some good, you know?..."
-----Nick Fury: "More than you may ever know, Monopoly Man...."

------From THE ULTIMATES # 1, words by Mark ["I wrote 'CIVIL WAR',  'AMERICAN JESUS',  & 'KICK A$$'!"] Millar...[also, THE ULTIMATES may just be THE BEST MARVEL SERIES of the 21st CENTURY!!!....really!]

 

-----Steve Rogers: "Listen, I'm really sorry about breaking your nose back there, General Fury....."
----------Nick Fury: "Take it easy, Cap. This nose has been smashed more times than Robert Downey Junior....It's you we're worried about right now, soldier. Are you absolutely sure this is the right time to put yourself through something like this, man?..."
-----Steve Rogers: "Sir, I just found out my fiancee's married to my old best friend and they've got four kids and seven grandchildren. Let's be realistic here;...there's never going to be a good time...."
 ----------Nick Fury: "Fair point....."

------MORE From THE ULTIMATES VOL. 1, words by Mark ["I ALSO wrote 'WANTED', 'OLD MAN LOGAN', & 'NEMESIS'!"] Millar...

 

COME TO THINK OF IT,....you MAY wish to pre-oder some of this MILLAR-guy's NEW projects coming soon.... Check out " MILLARWORLD " on your INTERNET Search Engine of choice to be completely taken aback by the BUTTON-PUSHINGLY CREATIVE work this gentleman produces.........we're just sayin'... :o)

 

"Just one more thing......." -----Columbo, From the TV Series of the same name---

 

'AVENGERS'.....as well as being a foundation for MARVEL COMICS....has ALSO employed the BEST, MOST POPULAR WRITER [over the last decade] in comics, BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS, as he has plotted and scripted every issue of up to 4 different 'AVENGERS' titles over the past 7 YEARS!!!

He came up with the idea of mimicing DC's 'JUSTICE LEAGUE' [...as the 2000's animated JLA series was immensely sucessful back then...] by putting ALL OF MARVEL'S FLAGSHIP CHARACTERS into one title, which meant yet MORE spotlight time for 'Claws' & 'Webs', although....

Known for rich 'POPy' detailed dialogue, seriously interwoven humour, STORY-TWISTS, & long-planned farscape storytelling, BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS also gives credence to lesser known characters, incorporating little parts of a wide MARVEL UNIVERSE with the scope & accuracy of a sharpshooter, overall painting a more cohesive picture for READERS WHO keep coming back with enthusiasm....

A sample of such would be.....

-----Spider-Man: Anyone want to carry me?

-----Luke Cage: Don't you have the proportionate strength of a spider?

----Spider-Man: Who hasn't slept in three days, who got his arm broken and hasn't had it looked at yet, who is now hiking though the tropical jungle in his full-body long johns and booties.

-----Luke Cage: That spider that bit ya must have been one whiney spider.

-----Wolverine: Booties?

----From NEW AVENGERS VOL. 1, Words by BRIAN ["Hey, I KILLED PETER PARKER in ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN!"] MICHAEL ["Oh Yeah, I've also WON MANY AWARDS, also!"] BENDIS

 

............SO, I GUESS WHAT WE ARE SAYING IS.....In addition to an action-packed battle royale movie....AND an ACTION-PACKED BATTLE ROYALE COMIC, .....that being 'AVENGERS VS X-MEN' a 12-ISSUE FANBOY's wet dream promising everything but the kitchen sink......

......There ALSO EXISTS a STRONG, CHARACTER-DRIVEN narrative monthly series just begging you to READ IT, BECAUSE IT'S GOOD....GREAT ACTUALLY! .......It is rarer than it should be,....that a heroic COMIC BOOK movie will hit at the same time as its franchise COMIC TITLE is at its PEAK QUALITY-WISE! 

....Image Collections fully recommends you listen to THAT VOICE in your head which insists on nudging you back towards READING COMICS AGAIN, rediscovering your LOVE OF THE COMICS MEDIUM, & not only picking up an issue or two for old times' sake, but ALSO SHARING IT WITH SOMEONE YOU LOVE....

....and 'AVENGERS'...... [or SAGA, SANDMAN, or SAUCER COUNTRY [about a woman running for US President] ] .....might JUST be THE PLACE TO START THE DISCOVERY... :o)

Happy Reading......IC :)

 

As adults we choose our own reading material. Depending on our moods and needs
we might read the newspaper, a blockbuster novel, an academic article, a women's
magazine, a comic, a children's book, or the latest book that just about
everyone is reading. No one chastises us for our choice. No one says, 'That's
too short for you to read.' No one says, 'That's too easy for you, put it back.'
No one says 'You couldn't read that if you tried -- it's much too difficult."..

Yet if we take a peek into classrooms, libraries, and bookshops we will notice
that children's choices are often mocked, censured, and denied as valid by
idiotic, interfering teachers, librarians, and parents. Choice is a personal
matter that changes with experience, changes with mood, and changes with need.
We should let it be.”
― Mem Fox, Radical Reflections: Passionate Opinions on Teaching, Learning, and
Living

 ......"Yes, of course, the whole idea is utterly inane, but to let its predictable
inanities blind you to its truly fabulous and breathtaking aspects is to do both
oneself and the genre a disservice.”
― Alan Moore, Swamp Thing, Vol. 1: Saga of the Swamp Thing ..

THE BEST-SELLING COMIC OF 2011

[....you heard it HERE @ Image Collections first :o],

 

with sales possibly higher than any comic of the past 8 years, the

NEW DC-52's JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 welcomes back to monthly comics the

smashing style of modern North American superhero prototype artist,

.

JIM [ X-men, Batman:Hush ] LEE....

DC_Reboot_Justice_League_1_cover_Comic 'Heroic Reboots' have paved the road

of the industry's history seemingly forever,

sometimes sparkling [...like DC's 1980s

'CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS' fixer-story,

...John Byrne's NEW AGE Superman classic

'MAN OF STEEL', ...George Perez's perfect

Wonder Woman....1990s Valiant-Gold Key,

Marvel's 1960s Launch, 2000's 'ULTIMATES',

& game-changer 'CIVIL WAR'....being just

some prime examples], while others

remaining nameless here, proved more

'speedbump-roadkill-retread'....

While revision is sometimes necessary,

as, unlike almost any other medium, sorting

through thousands of popular stories spread

over decades of monthlies, one-shots, and

graphic novels provided to a thirsty public

eager to be quenched with a reality-based continuity becomes a daunting

task very quickly...

It's no coincidenceTV's longest running prime-time entertainment program,

'The Simpsons', recently beating out 'Gunsmoke' for that title [both of whom

have had comic incarnations featuring new stories true to their source material,

GUN-over 30 issues/ THE SIMPSONS has over 160+ comics and counting...],

doesn't concern itself with integrating its stories together [..Homer fired again?]

as to do so would involve hours of fustration, and limit future storylines....

.

.

Hence sequential art's heroic tendencies to...

paint itself into a corner, both as a challenge for its

creators, and testament to its uniqueness as a 

fulfilling storytelling medium... 

   Therefore, it is not only commendable, but close to

unbelievable that DC COMICS, by way of loved writer

Geoff [FLASH, GREEN LANTERN REBIRTH] Johns,

would begin it's pursuit of expectant reader's acclaim not

by focussing on the minute, but instead roll out

a complete revising of it's entire 'big-gun' line-up in...

 

'JUSTICE LEAGUE #1' as the

FIRST TITLE to hit the stands on AUGUST 31st,....

 

....leaving it's always opinionated yet adoring audience a

full week to mull over before the other #1's appear!

ACTION COMICS #1
Written by GRANT MORRISON
Art by RAGS MORALES and RICK BRYANT
Cover by RAGS MORALES
Variant cover by JIM LEE and SCOTT WILLIAMS
On sale SEPTEMBER 7 ? 40 pg, FC, $3.99 US ? RATED T
The one and only Grant Morrison (ALL-STAR SUPERMAN) returns to Superman, joined 
by sensational artist Rags Morales (IDENTITY CRISIS), to bring you tales of The 
Man of Steel unlike any you've ever read! This extra-sized debut issue is the 
cornerstone of the entire DC Universe!

     IMAGE  COLLECTIONS SAYS..... [about ACTION COMICS #1 ].....

  "It ALL begins here....", or so they say, as DC has stated ACTION COMICS will be 

  showcasing "THE ONLY HERO in the universe" at first, meaning SUPERMAN's  

 PRE-HEROIC-AGE story, meaning before all those OTHER good-doers came along

  in his shadow...
 
         Artist Rags Morales can certainly handle the DC UNIVERSE as seen in the  

  modern-day classic IDENTITY CRISIS, and easily adds to Clark Kent emotion,  

  texture, and humanity to one who isn't. As the world's most famous planetary  

  immigrant, the star of the book has much potential in showcasing the great, the  

  SUPER, and sometimes, the overlooked about our own 'big blue ball' Earth....  
 
         An interesting take using a creator [writer] who has been drooling over this   

   project for at least a decade, and for those lucky enough to have read GRANT  

  MORRISON's magnificent 'ALL STAR SUPERMAN' in the past few years,  

  we KNOW this could be a BIBLICAL genesis for DC's new status quo!!!

As Batman and Robin try to adjust to their new partnership, a figure emerges 
from Bruce Wayne's past: His name is NoBody, and he's not happy that Batman 
Incorporated is shining a light on his own shadowy war against evil...


   IMAGE  COLLECTIONS SAYS.... [about BATMAN&ROBIN #1 ].....

 

      BATMAN & ROBIN has LOTS going for it, including a remarkable writer who's

 experienced pinpointing the sticky moody DAMIAN, the only known offspring of

 BRUCE WAYNE!

 [....Talia al Ghul, 'co-creator' of Damian, is also [Bat-villian] Ras al Ghul' daughter... 

 ...who sent 'li'll D' away to be raised by a league of assassins, before dumping the 

 troublemaker in Bruce Wayne's lap...We're guessing motherhood wasn't the kind- 

 est to her :o ]   

 

 BATMAN & ROBIN spotlights BRUCE & DAMIAN, a tag-team not seen yet much....

 ....then again, there IS a reason they don't make 'Bad Cop / Bad Cop' movies, they

 never seem to end up well for any of the characters involved....


           In one of the least looked forward to change-ups, what WAS a playful yet

antagonizing dynamic of DICK [putting up with his mentor's son out of respect]

GRAYSON and DAMIAN [putting up with his fathers apprentice, seldom with

respect] WAYNE, seems no longer quite as witty or palatable.

 


 DC has the right to make changes, even if it IS controversial
...speaking of which, there's plenty of objectionable insights to discuss about the next comic....

Universe!


   IMAGE  COLLECTIONS SAYS.... [about AQUAMAN#1 ].....

 

Often the target of uninformed silliness, DC's water based terra is about to translate into a firm school of seriousness.  Dispite your inclanations of thought, you are reading it here....AQUAMAN WILL BE a deserved bestseller, and quite possibly the most underestimated title of the 'New 52'!!!

        Don't take our word for it, pick one up and experience it yourself, AQUAMAN WILL BE GREAT!!! 

Long time planned, researched, pondered, and plotted, Geoff Johns has put much energy, sweat, and hope into this relaunch of the "King of the 7 Seas" and with fan favorite 'Blackest Night' / 'Green Lantern artist Ivan Reis aboard, this book will generate serious 'knottage' causing a tidal wave of momentum going forward...

New DC 'species/threat' THE TRENCH will have many a reader buzzing in the days to come as their part in DC's 'New 52' becomes......but that would be telling! :o]

Not everyone 'gets' Authur Curry, but soon they'll be clamouring to, and that's probably a probability for YOU also, so better now than later....

             IMAGE  COLLECTIONS SAYS..... [about THE FLASH #1 ]..... 


     THE FLASH is no stranger to rebooted series and new #1s, his followers having 

  suffered through many numerological fits over the years, yet DC almost always  

  provides great excuses for hanging in, blessing the character with great writers  

  who have taken the time to create energetic thought- provoking tales, often using  

  the properties of speed itself to craft with....   
 
        Both MARK [Kingdom Come] WAID & GEOFF [Green Lantern] JOHNS, now  

  superstars in the industry, broke out while writing FLASH, each leaving behind  

  extensive critically acclaimed runs, utilizing supporting characters creativly and  

  sharpening THE FLASH's rogues gallery, a villians line-up second only to The  

  BATMANs at DC COMICS...   
 
      This time out FLASH is by CANADIAN ARTIST [...and also writer of this title ]

 FRANCIS MANAPUL, who has quite the fan-base here in the GTA [Greater Toronto

Area], as well as added exposure through his work on TV's 'Beast Legends'....

 

       Speaking of 'Legends', Francis, a former longtime 'Witchblade' artist, has

  worked with many of them in the industry so far for such a young creator!  

 

  Having collaborated with Marvel / Valiant icon Jim Shooter on 'Legion of Superheroes',  

  'DEATH OF SUPERMAN' Doomsday originator Dan Jurgens on 'Tomb Raider',

     IMAGE  COLLECTIONS SAYS [about The Fury Of FIRESTORM #1 B4 it ships].....

       Star of his own explosive HIT COMIC SERIES of the 1980's, many have fond   

  memories of the hot-headed high schooler Ronnie Raymond as FIRESTORM,  

  whom former Spider-man writer Gerry Conway created with Al Milgrom.  
 
   DC has been mashing around recent versions of the character, with Jason Rusch

  [the 2000s version] getting lots of screen time in the scant appearances  

  FIRESTORM has made lately. Now that the "FURY OF..." is back, along with fan-  

  fave writer GAIL SIMONE, expect those film shorts to graduate to blockbuster  

  status if all goes well!  
 
    Having one of the BEST COVER ARTISTS in the industry, Ethan [Green Lantern 

  Rebirth] Van Sciver, also co-writing, on board, makes 'THE FURY OF FIRESTORM' 

  one of the most looked forward to of the 'DC 52',...

Cover by RYAN SOOK
On sale SEPTEMBER 21 ? 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US ? RATED T
It's the start of a new series spotlighting some of the DC Universes's most 
exciting super heroes! First up is Deadman, straight from the pages of BRIGHTEST 
DAY, in a five-issue epic where the body-hopping hero meets his match in a new 
foe who wants to make sure the souls that Deadman helps out go straight to Hell!


While they're integrating the WildStorm and DC Universes, looking at the books 
below makes it fairly clear that "The Edge" is where the majority of the 
WildStorm mythology is being transferred to, being amalgamated with DC's war and 
western titles, as well as some of the, well, "edgier" properties like 
Deathstroke and the Suicide Squad. I predict every book in this section will be 
rated for older readers than the rest of the line, other than "The Dark" below.

Static Shock was a short lived-fondly remembered animated show based on DC's

critical success Milestone Comics line of ETHNICAL DIVERSE characters in the

early 1990s...

 

     DC's Milestone, whose characters include the African-American Static, Icon, and  

  Hardware; the Asian-American Xombi, and the multi-ethnic superhero group the  

  Blood Syndicate, which include black, Asian and Latino men and women, debuted 

  its titles in 1993 spearheaded by Milestone editor-in-chief, the late Dwayne  

  McDuffie [1962-2011], who created or co-created many of the characters,

  including Static....

And who is the monster lurking in the shadows, watching Hawk and Dove from afar? 
Find out in this new series from Sterling Gates (FLASHPOINT: KID FLASH LOST) and 
artist Rob Liefeld (X-Force, Youngblood)!


     IMAGE  COLLECTIONS SAYS [about HAWK & DOVE #1 ]......

 

Originally created by Steve [Spider-man co-creator] Ditko and Steve Skeates in the late

1960s, and having survived many incarnations over the years, Hank Hall [Hawk] is

the jealous type who just can't quite get the knack of heroics down pat...

 

This Hawk & Dove have a pretty reasonable chance of tripling their previous series'

longevity as this one has some positive buzz attached to it!

 

Though it may not be the popular veiwpoint, we think Rob Liefeld has paid his dues 

in the comic industry doghouse and deserves some rightly acclaim again for his

accomplishments in playing his part in shaping the marketplace to what it is today,

or more accurately, what it ISN'T...

 

One of modern times composite superstar artists, Rob's 1990s frolics with fans &

fame are textbook,...prime examples of going off a beaten path to provide a method 

for others to beat a path to you.

 

Mr Liefeld still has it.  If he can find it consistantly, and if DC COMICS allows H&D to

find its place, fans could embrace it....

Green Lantern 'Lite' Not Stopping Readers...

DC MOVIE MAY BE TOO 'GREEN' FOR SOME, BUT

 

'LANTERN' COMICS SHINE PLOT BLATENTLY PROUD...

art by ALEX ROSS

Green_Lantern_A.RossMiniShineDC's surprisingly most consistent high-grade hero
reading is, and has been for years now, its staple will-
powered character Hal Jordan, otherwise known as the
'GREEN LANTERN'....


Over the past 6 years, DC has allowed anyone who chooses to, enter easily into the life of Hal through gateway stories such as 'GREEN LANTERN REBIRTH',which contains everything a newcomer'd ever need to know about emerald ring-wielders, and 'SECRET ORIGIN', an emotional internal struggle within a man who has almost no trouble adapting to amazing abilities, yet has complex foibles as a human being, which literally blow up the challenges of being, with apologies to Marvel's Daredevil's catchphrase, "a man without fear"...


Don't let the spaced-out rock-'em/sock-'em of a few stories and a visually explosive movie fool you, GREEN LANTERN usually reads as a very down-to-earth, character-driven beam of redeeming light in a sometimes murky medium...

 

"I shall shed my light over dark evil.

For the dark things cannot stand the light,

The light of the Green Lantern! "
----Original oath uttered by first [1940's] Green Lantern, Alan Scott.


"In brightest day, in darkest night,

No evil shall escape my sight

Let those who worship evil's might,

Beware my power...Green Lantern's light!" 
---The most famous version, used by modern [1960's & up] Green Lantern, Hal Jordan,.

Written by PETER DAVID

If you thought all the action on Mars began with the arrival of John Carter—are you in for a shock! John Carter: World of Mars is the official prequel to the upcoming Walt Disney Pictures blockbuster film releasing March 2012 and reveals the shocking events that transpire before the hotly anticipated motion picture! Plus it features some of the greatest characters ever conceived by Edgar Rice Burroughs, including Princess Dejah Thoris, the valiant, four-armed Tars Tarkas, John Carter and Burroughs himself!

Dejah Thoris has yet to meet the love of her life, but she has her hands full with the malicious Sab Than, would-be ruler of Zodanga, who sees kidnapping the princess of Mars as a short-cut to winning the thousand year war between his people and her city of Helium. Meanwhile Tars Tarkas is not yet the leader of his people, but instead an unambitious warrior who is caught between the desires of the female he loves and his best friend who needs Tars's help to become Jeddak of the Tharks...assuming that his ambitions don't kill them all. It’s a compelling tale of romance, court intrigue and an unending war on a distant world. Take an unforgettable journey to Barsoom. It’s a trip you can’t afford to miss!

He’s outrun Norman Osborn, and kept the database of superhuman secret identities safe and secure. But in doing so, Tony Stark has lost just about everything: his armor, his power — even his very mind. Now, at his absolute lowest point, it will take Tony’s last reservoir of will — and a band of brothers including Thor, Captain America, War Machine and Black Widow — to keep from losing it all and sow the seeds for a brighter tomorrow. Stark Industries’ arms-manufacturing days are over: Tony’s new company, Stark Resilient, is bringing modern tech to the masses without bringing innocent people to their knees. But there’s a competitor on the scene, a mother/daughter team with a very familiar name ready to pick up the slack with an armor called Detroit Steel. They’ve started a deadly game of international intrigue that will bring one of Iron Man’s deadliest foes back into the fray — but for the Hammer girls, that was merely the opening salvo. With War Machine grounded by the Pentagon, Pepper missing the RT-charged heart that made her Rescue and Tony’s Resilient team struggling to put their clean-energy tech into production, they’re about to up the ante. Now, Iron Man’s going to find out just what “resilient” really means. Collecting INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #20-33.
