THE BATMAN V SUPERMAN BATMOBILE, ON DISPLAY IN NEW YORK TODAY02/14/16 @ 3:51 pm EST
My Comics has some good things to say about the debut of The Shadow:
“When you hear the word “pulp” what is the first thing that comes to mind? Maybe it’s the movie that made the word famous again, “Pulp Fiction”. You might think of something to do with trees or even orange juice. Well, you should be thinking about Dynamite Entertainment’s The Shadow
“This character debuted around 1930 first in serialized pulp magazines and then in radio programs. A lot of people don’t realize that this is one of the most famous pulp characters of the 20th century. Besides print and radio, The Shadow has spawned 5 movies in total with the most recent being released in 1994 starring Alec Baldwin
. The comic property has been passed down over the years with DC Comics
doing a couple of runs in the late 70′s to 80′s and then Dark Horse
buying out the rights to do their own series in the mid 90′s. Fast forward to 2011 and Dynamite Entertainment announced that they had in fact licensed The Shadow from Conde Nast. As most of you know Dynamite has done a superb job bringing a lot of these pulp properties back to life in new and interesting ways. The Shadow #1 written by Garth Ennis
and drawn by Aaron Campbell
is a fine example of an older property made new again.
“The story takes place in New York City sometime in the 1940′s. Our hero, clad in a black trench coat, red scarf, and fedora is going to make a stand against evil. In this case the evil is Nazi sympathizing Japanese Soldiers who are looking to board a ship against the will of the people who are on it. We don’t know exactly what is on it, but we know that The Shadow makes quick work of a number of Japanese soldiers very quickly with his dueling pistols. The action is fast paced and the Shadow is quick to let his guns do the talking. Garth Ennis does a great job sticking with the times in terms of dialogue. The heroic phrases used by the Shadow, brings us back to a more simple time in comics when the division between good guys and bad guys was more black and white than today’s shades of gray.
“What would come off as a bit campy in a modern day setting works very well in this particular setting of the 1940′s where…”

A HERO IS MORE THAN JUST SUPER SPEED – INSIDE THE FLASH EPISODE 'ESCAPE FROM EARTH-2'02/14/16 @ 3:37 pm EST
While speaking with Playboy (viaEntertainment Weekly), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
‘s new Lex Luthor Jesse Eisenberg
offered a few comments on how his criminal genius differs from some of the portrayals in the past.
“The character is in line with what audiences want to see now,” he explained. “Which is a more modern, psychologically realistic concept of Lex Luthor.”
Actors like Gene Hackman
, Michael Rosenberg
, John Shea
, Kevin Spacey
have played the part with varying degrees of realism or cartoon fancy depending on the situation. Eisenberg specifically called out the Hackman and Spacey Luthor — intended to be the same character — as “interesting to watch,” but unrelated to the character as he played it.
“His motivations are multifaceted” said Eisenberg. “He has a way of using language that’s specific to the way his mind works; he struggles with interesting philosophical dilemmas like that of the individual having too much power, even if that individual is using that power for good.”
In the comics, Luthor has transformed from underground criminal mastermind to a captain of industry and even the president over the course of the last seventy-five years. The Luthor of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
takes its cues from the industrialist interpretation. As both a titan of business and an important man in Metropolis, he comes into conflict with both Batman and Superman when the film opens on March 25th.

Jim TerryIMAGE TO REPUBLISH GARTH ENNIS AND CARLOS EZQUERRA’S RIFLE BRIGADE02/14/16 @ 3:25 pm EST
, artist and co-writer, talks about Alice Cooper vs. Chaos
#6, on sale now fromDynamite
. Interiors by Jim Terry.BYRON BREWER: Jim, you have certainly put a lot of yourself into this book as both artist and co-writer. Looking back, is there anything either script-wise or artistically you may have done different in retrospect?JIM TERRY:
Well, artistically I want to redo everything I did the day after it’s done, so I try to let that go once it’s over. As far as the script, Tim and I threw ideas at each other like a pie fight, and there are some I wish we’d have more room to develop. We wanted this to be a “put your seatbelt on” story and I think we accomplished that, but there are a few things that we could have spent some more time explaining/exploiting if we had a bit more room.BB: Now that, with issue #6, Alice Cooper vs. Chaos is about to conclude, did you and co-writer Tim Seeley tell the story you started out to tell? Were there any intriguing sideroads you did not get to take you’d maybe like to explore in a spinoff series?JT:
Again, there were so many stories and characters we were trying to wrangle into six issues, so some things got the shorthand version. I would like to explore Alice’s place in the dreamworld a bit more, there are many levels of plot and characterization that are just waiting to be discovered there, and as it relates to THIS story it may have put more things into context — as well as added gravity.BB: What was your favorite design you had an opportunity to do for this book?JT:
Most of the designs were in place and I put my “old school” spin on them, but I was able to conjure up “Evil” Alice and give him his physicality — which I enjoyed. I’m sure if I sat and thought about it, I could pin down many of the subconscious influences that sank into that guy, but at the time it just flowed and felt fun. The tree creature was a blast to draw as well.BB: So who is more evil: Mistress Hel or Evil Alice?JT:
Mistress Hel has the power, but she’s a little bit emo. I think that if Evil Alice rose to his full potential, there’d be a heavy metal reckoning.

BREAKING: BAFTA AWARDS: 'STAR WARS' WINS SPECIAL VISUAL EFFECTS AWARD02/14/16 @ 4:02 pm EST
The Punisher channels his inner Joker in a teaser for Daredevil Season Two
, which concludes with a message that a full trailer is coming tomorrow.
"You're one bad day away from being me," Frank Castle says -- presumably to Matt Murdock -- in the teaser, which Marvel just released.
Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell’s Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame – Elektra Natchios.
Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt’s neighborhood. Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, facing a life-altering choice that forces him to truly understand what it means to be a hero.
Charlie Cox stars as Matt Murdock, while Jon Bernthal and Élodie Yung are introduced as Frank Castle and Elektra Natchios. Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, and Rosario Dawson also return from the first season, with Stephen Rider also joining them.
The full season of 13 episodes is set to be released on Netflix on March 18, 2016.
