From the blog of Eric Trautmann:

I was recently asked to provide a "commentary track" for Flash Gordon: Zeitgeist #1, which is now available in its entirety on Comic Book Resources.

Basically, it's just some annotations—where I got some of the ideas, why I made some of the choices I made, and so on.

It is also a great way to check it out, if you've been on the fence.

Here's the link; and if you are enjoying the series, please pass on the link as far and wide as possible.

The talent behind some of the most unique successes in DC Comics' current slate gathered Saturday afternoon at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle, for the "DC Comics: Champions of Justice" panel. Talent on hand include the "Batgirl" team of Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher and Babs Tarr, plus "Sinestro" and "Lobo" writer Cullen Bunn and "Batman '66" writer Jeff Parker.

Hank Kanalz, moderating the panel, asked about the genesis of the current "Batgirl" run.

Stewart shared that originally he was approached to write and draw the series himself, but had just committed to "Fight Club 2" at Dark Horse Comics -- thus bringing in his longtime friend Fletcher as co-writer, and Tarr, who he discovered on Tumblr and had never drawn sequential pages before. Stewart had been drawing layouts for "Batgirl," but Tarr revealed that she's taking on sole art duties with issue #41.

Fletcher also writes DC's latest take on "Black Canary," set to debut with a #1 issue in June 17. Fletcher said he's looking to reestablish Black Canary as the premier martial artist in the DC Universe, and, "while she's doing it, she has to suffer through being on tour with a band, which is just her current circumstances."

Bunn talked "Sinestro," saying he definitely sees the title character as a villain, though Sinestro sincerely believes in what he's doing.

"He's struggling with the idea of saving his people and building up his forces," Bunn said. "He's building up these forces for something only he knows is coming -- we won't reveal that for a while."

Next up: "Lobo." "I don't consider him an antihero, he's a pretty terrible person," Bunn said.

An upcoming issue of the series will have, Bunn said, "one of the most violent climaxes of a battle I've ever written, it's really grotesque. I think it's just the tip of the iceberg in where Lobo is going, in terms of how mean and violent he is."

"Convergence" starts imminently, and Parker is writing two of the tie-in series -- "Convergence: Hawkman" and "Convergence: Shazam."

"Hawkman," illustrated by Tim Truman, returns to the Joe Kubert era of Hawkman and Hawkgirl fighting crime while acting as museum curators.

Of "Shazam," Parker said he realized he couldn't "phone this one in" after reading the Stewart-illustrated "The Multiversity: Thunderworld." Parker said the real star of the issue is artist Evan "Doc" Shaner, and that Shazam is the character he was meant to draw.

Parker also talked "Batman '66," and said that if Solomon Grundy -- who features in an upcoming installment of the comic -- appeared on the '60s "Batman" TV series, he would be played by Ted Cassidy, Lurch from "The Addams Family."

Turning to audience questions, a young fan asked if the pulled "Batgirl" #41 variant cover meant that there will be references to "The Killing Joke" in the series.

"Pretty sneaky, somebody sending a kid up there to ask that question," Parker joked.

"The whole purpose of the storyline we just concluded was to kind of move past 'The Killing Joke,' and not have that be a defining aspect of the character," Stewart answered. "'Killing Joke' still exists, it's still canon, but we're not going to dwell on it anymore."

"That dancing scene is the final answer to it," Fletcher added. "Batgirl wins."

Stewart said upcoming issues of "Batgirl" will see more familiar DC characters brought to the mix." (Source: CBR)



ECCC: MARVEL: FROM "BLACK VORTEX" TO "SECRET WARS"
03/28/15 @ 8:25 pm EST
Source: Comic Book Resources | Categories: Marvel | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Saturday afternoon in Seattle, Marvel turned its attention at Emerald City Comicon to the "From 'Black Vortex' to 'Secret Wars'" panel, focusing on -- but not limited to -- the two titular events. In attendance were Marvel Executive Editor Mike Marts, Marvel VP of International Business Development C.B. Cebulski and writers Kelly Sue DeConnick, Rick Remender and Charles Soule.

Marts started the panel by asking Remender to discuss the recently announced "Secret Wars"-related series he's writing, "Hail Hydra."

"We've never seen what happens when Hydra wins," Remender said of "Hail Hydra." "There's a bridge from 'Captain America' that connects directly into this."

Soule discussed "Inhumans: Attilan Rising," which he compared to "Casablanca." In "Attilan Rising," Medusa and Black Bolt -- long-married in the traditional Marvel Universe -- will be at odds.

"It's very dramatically emotionally, with huge action," Soule said. "It's a lot of fun. 'Secret Wars' gives us the opportunity to twist things and do things we wouldn't normally be able to do. I'm having a lot of fun with the mash-up element of it."

The other Soule-written "Secret Wars" event is "Civil War."

"You probably know that story," Soule said of the 2006-2007 original. "Having the opportunity to tell a new story set in that idea is super-fun."

In Soule's "Civil War" series, "It's not just the superheroes, we're all a part of it. It's gigantic. It's the biggest thing, scope-wise, I've ever done."

The panel moved on to fan questions. When asked about a perceived suppression of the Fantastic Four within Marvel publishing, Cebulski dismissed the notion that the characters are being held back. "There will be a 'Fantastic Four' book," Cebulski said, adding that the characters play an important part in "Secret Wars." "The characters are still loved." Cebulski also pointed out that Human Torch will be a part of "Uncanny Inhumans," as revealed earlier this week.

Marts said that several characters will have "lasting effects" as a result of "The Black Vortex" storyline. "Not just minor characters, big characters."

Winding down the panel, an attendee asked if Miles Morales "becoming the main Spider-Man" have anything to do with the Sony and Marvel Studios live-action Spidey deal? Cebulski said they can't speak to that film deal, and stated, "Miles becoming the main Spider-Man, I think you're speculating a little bit there. Peter Parker is still going to be around, he's not going anywhere."

Will there still be an "Amazing Spider-Man" series after "Secret Wars"? "Wait and see," Cebulski responded. (Source: CBR)



ECCC: DC ENTERTAINMENT ALL ACCESS: WEEKLIES CONVERGE

Source: Newsarama | Categories: DC | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Moderator Hank Kanalz kicked off DC's All Access: Weeklies Converge panel at ECCC on Saturday by introducing panelists James Tynion IV, Dan Jurgens, Marguerite Bennett, Stuart Moore and Jeff King.

Kanalz showed a video trailer for Convergence, featuring Dan DiDio explaining Convergence's multiversal plot, where worlds that were destroyed in previous Crisis events come together in a single world, brought together by Brainiac.

King spoke on the challenges of bringing disparate characters and worlds together. "To me, the challenge was balancing the epic and the intimate, and I think we did that. Dan kind of teased a big finish to Convergence in that video, and it certainly explains a lot about Multiversity, and why there's that question mark on the map of the multiverse."

Moore discussed Convergence: Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes, which draws on the 1980's Legion. "It's really a story about a war between two futures. We're seeing Superboy at a point where we've never really seen him before, where he's just about to become Superman, and he's now stuck in this situation where he's not sure he's going to make it through to be the hero he knows he's destined to be."

Issue #1 will be drawn by Moore's partner on Image's Egos, Gus Storms, and issue #2 will feature art by Peter Gross. Mark Farmer inks both issues.

Attention then moved to Tynion, who discussed Batman Eternal. "We've only got one issue left, and it's all building to this one giant moment. Taking on a weekly comic series I thought would be one of the most difficult experiences of my life, but working with so many talented writers and creators really made it a great experience. It was a room with no ego. We tried to make it really exciting, and I think we did a damn good job."

Kanalz then passed the baton to Jurgens to discuss Future's End. "We started with Batman Beyond in the future, but we kind of moved into introducing a wildly different Brainiac that shows that there's one Brainiac who's behind the appearance of every Brainiac in every other time period."

"It was really fun and sort of surreal. It forces you to get in every character's head very sincerely, and find that one thing that, as the world is destroyed around them, remains that center core, that philosophy that drives them." "It's rare that you tell a story where you don't win," said King.

"Yeah, but we knew that's what we had to do, that there was no other way it could end."

Gail Simone also joined the panel to discuss Convergence: Nightwing/Oracle. "Dan DiDio is a tricky bastard," said Simone. "I thought I was done writing Oracle forever. Then I got an e-mail from Dan one day that said, 'Hey, Gail, what about Oracle?' and that was it. He offered me the opportunity to tell the Nightwing/Oracle story I've always wanted to tell."

Following in the announcements of "Pacific Rim 2" due out in 2017 and the success of the graphic novel "Pacific Rim: Tales from the Year Zero," Legendary Comics will bepublishing a 4-issue miniseries, "Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift," starting in November. "Pacific Rim" screenwriter Travis Beacham planned out the story, and Joshua Hale Fialkov will write the series with art by Marcos Marz.

Fialkov at Emerald City Comic Con confirmed tp CBR that the miniseries will be in the continuity of the film, taking place between the events of the graphic novel and the movie.

"It's true to the spirit of the movie," he said, "Guillermo del Toro has been involved every step of the way."

Fialkov said that within the "Pacific Rim" universe, the story in the miniseries is just as important as the film or graphic novel."Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift" will focus on the Jaeger Tacit Ronin, which was shown briefly in the 2013 film. The story's two pilots will be new characters, and the miniseries will show "the entirety of the relationship, from when they meet, to getting matched up, to how they become pilots," according to the writer.

"The pace of the series means that there will be action in every issue," said Fialkov.

He also revealed that the story is "set in the drift," but said that he could not explain further.

Years later, when one of the remaining kids, now an adult, also mysteriously disappears, it’s up to the last two of the group to dig up their dusty books to find him and finally figure out what happened to their friend all those years ago.

CAPTAIN MARVEL IN AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON? HERE'S THE LATEST

At this point we might as well give Captain Marvel the award for Most Rumors Surrounding An Upcoming Marvel Movie Character. Besides speculation over which actress will be playing Carol Danvers in the MCU, there were rumors even before her solo film was announced in October that she would debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Earlier this week, the rumor of her appearing in the May blockbuster’s post-credits sequence rose again, though it was unconfirmed. Now, only days later, another report as come out over a possible appearance, but this time it’s not looking good for the heroine.

Nerdist reports that Carol Danvers will not be appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Host Jessica Chobot acknowledges that the often-mentioned post-credits sequence would be one way we could have seen her, but as it stands now it’s more likely we would see characters like Black Panther, Thanos or even Spider-Man (though that is also a slim possibility) once Avengers: Age of Ultron wraps up.

So if you were looking to see one of Marvel’s most famous female superheroes among the other 11 other officially announced superheroes slated to show up in the movie, you’re likely going to be disappointed, according to this new report.

One persistent claim was that Captain Marvel would be among the new team members that comprise the Avengers 2.0 team after the original team dissolves (as expected). However, she was not included in the recently reported lineup of Captain America, Black Widow, War Machine, Scarlet Witch, Vision and Falcon.
