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.

MARVEL SUPERHERO BATTLE PITS DISNEY AGAINST FOX AND SONY10/20/14 @ 4:50 pm EST
It seems that in December, Batman, Bruce Wayne will be successful in restoring his dead son Damian Wayne to life, and as of January, he will be Robin again.
The cover to Batman & Robin #38,
from the creative team of Peter Tomasi and Pat Gleason & Mick Gray, shows what looks like Damian Wayne, standing triumphantly, very much alive, and wearing the Robin costume.
In fact, it sure looks like those bullets are bouncing off his chest, which certainly throws another wrench into the reveal.
Well, Tomasi decided to take matters into his own hands when he realized that DC Comics would be spoiling the big Robin Rises reveal in their solicitations today. Instead of letting them do it, he took to Twitter to reveal the cover of Batman & Robin #38,
hitting stores in January 2015, and revealing the new Robin.

HOUSE OF IDEAS TEASES WITH HOUSE OF M10/20/14 @ 3:45 pm EST
Marvel superheroes are a powerful force in the movie universe, but it's going to take a huge plot twist to get them all fighting on the same side.When Disney bought Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion back in 2009, it secured the rights to Marvel's entire comic-book universe including Captain America, Spider-Man, The X-Men, Thor, Iron Man, The Fantastic Four and The Hulk. It just didn't get the right to put all of them on screen, and it's still a little bitter about it half a decade later.
Sony still holds the film rights to Spider-Man and all the villains, sidekicks and other characters created specifically for his books. The folks at 21st Century Fox hold similar rights to both the X-Men and Fantastic Four. Neither Disney nor Marvel are happy about that situation and, recently, issued an edict to Marvel's writers not to develop anything new for the Marvel properties owned by Fox.
Also, it looks as if the Fantastic Four themselves are getting the ax, as Bleeding Cool reports that the upcoming Fantastic Four: The End is Fourever storyline could be the group's last once it wraps up in early 2015. With the FF franchise making $620 million worldwide from two films released since 2005 and with the newest installment releasing in August, cutting off the franchise's ability to generate cash from anything other than the films themselves is no small deal.

A NEW DIRECTION FOR GOD IS DEAD #2510/18/14 @ 8:12 pm EST
Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce a new licensing agreement with Arcane Wonders for multiple product categories based on Mage Wars
, the bestselling and critically acclaimed tabletop fantasy game. Dynamite will debut their firstMage Wars
project in January 2015, an original prose novel subtitled Nature of the Beast
. Written by Will McDermott, Mage Wars: Nature of the Beast
is the first official prose story set within the expansive world of the game. Following the January print and digital launch, Dynamite plans to expand the line into comic books, graphic novels, additional prose novels, prints, lithographs, and an art book. Mage Wars
is the customizable strategy game of dueling mages. Players take on the role of powerful mages, stepping into an arena to battle for supremacy. A unique genre-breaking concept, Mage Wars
combines the best elements of customizable card games and tactical miniature games. Players can choose from multiple mages like the Wizard, Warlock, Beastmaster, Priestess, or many others, each with their own unique strategies and style of play. The game is fast-paced and exciting, with challenging decisions every turn. Since its debut in 2012, the game achieved critical success and has accrued dozens of industry accolades. Tom Vasel of Dice Tower, a leading podcaster and reviewer in the gaming community, ranked Mage Wars
as the Second Best Game of All Time in his "Top 100 Games of All Time" list.
"We are truly honored and excited to be working with Dynamite. To partner up with such a professional team to bring Mage Wars
and the world of Etheria to our fans is a dream come true," cheers Bryan Pope, President of Arcane Wonders. "We have worked so hard to develop each of these characters and this universe and look forward to this partnership to share our vision with our fans."
"Since its launch, the Mage Wars
game has been celebrated by critics and fans alike, a true sensation in the gaming world," says Nick Barrucci, the CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. "It's a great privilege and honor to sign with Arcane Wonders, a true innovator in game design. They've created a fantastic universe to explore, and we're proud to work hand-in-hand with their staff in building upon that expansive landscape with new creative content."
The first novel, Mage Wars: Nature of the Beast
, takes place in the world of Etheria, and follows an unlikely cast of characters refreshingly removed from the trappings of traditional fantasy adventure. "Nature of the Beast
is not your average Hero's Journey tale" says author Will McDermott. "This is the story about the other guys -- the loners and the outcasts, the guards and the stewards, the folks who normally stay behind when the adventure starts -- the forgotten characters. It is a journey not toward the light, but into the darkness, both literal and figurative, where these characters must face their foibles and fears, their painful pasts and their lonely lives. It is a story about how true heroes are born, not through trial by fire, but by forging friendships that help them discover their own inner strength."
Author Will McDermott has worked in the gaming industry since 1997, when he became Senior Editor of Duelist Magazine
at Wizards of the Coast. While at Wizards, he helped publish thirty-seven magazines, and wrote five strategy guides for trading-card games. After leaving Wizards of the Coast, he became a freelance writer. Over the next five years, he published two Magic: The Gathering
novels, three Necromunda
novels (set in the Warhammer 30K
universe), and numerous short stories. In 2006, McDermott joined the writing staff at ArenaNet and began working on Guild Wars
. He wrote character dialogue for Guild Wars: Nightfall
, Guild Wars: Eye of the North
, and Guild Wars 2
. He also shepherded the first two Guild Wars
novels (Ghosts of Ascalon
by Matt Forbeck and Jeff Grubb, and Edge of Destiny
by J. Robert King) from conception to publication. Since departing ArenaNet in 2010, McDermott worked with Nintendo in game development and returned to freelance writing.
The development of the Mage Wars: Nature of the Beast
novel follows upon Dynamite's success in prose publishing with such titles as Seal Team Six
(which has sold over 140,000 copies across its nine volumes) and Prince Dracula
. Upon its release in January 2015, the prose novel will be available in print at fine bookstores and hobby specialty shops everywhere, and digitally for consumer purchase through Amazon, Kindle, iTunes, Kobo, and Google Play.

Jonathan Hickman’s God is Dead universe has been through the proverbial fire. The population of the once recognizable world has endured the Second Coming, the return of the pantheons of old, the release of the Titans, and even the resurrection of Jesus. It is hard to imagithat anything else could shake those stalwart mortals that continue to survive in the wake of godly powers fighting over the remnants of the world.
But Mike Costa has more in store for these wretched souls. God is Dead #25 marks the beginning of a brand new direction for the series in a super-sized jump-on arc. The Titans have returned to the world and though the
balance of life and death has been restored, are there any who can stand against these giant monsters? Welcome to old school Kaiju monsters as leviathan sized ancients attempt to claim the earth for their own.
If you have not tried God is Dead, stop by your local comic shop and ask the retailer to reserve a copy of this new chapter for you.
