Comic Book Newbie reviewed The Shadow #1 by Garth Ennis and Aaron Campbell and gave the book “9 out of 10 Newbie Re-Reads.” Here’s what they had to say:

“I finally got around to reading this one and am I glad I did!

“Garth Ennis is one of the hottest names in the industry right now and this book proclaims why.  Meet his main character, Lamont Cranston.   Smart business man who the CIA consults by day and The Shadow by night.  He has the ability to see the future and knows well the past. He also has the ability to make the dead speak the truth to him.  Ennis takes us on a journey into the past where Japan created atrocities upon China.  The history lesson sets up what is to come in this pre-WWII storyline when a ship full with Japanese goons is taken out by the Shadow.  Seems there is something these guys are looking for, along with other criminal groups and the CIA…  The Shadow also seems very interested in it.

“I really like this introduction issue.  I like the history lesson and the banter from the meeting between Cranston and the government agents. The action was pretty cool and a I am impressed with the abilities The Shadow possesses.  I think we have just got a taste of what he can do in this issue and I’m excited to see what other abilities he has.”

SHANE DAVIS DEALS WITH GODS & TROUBLED TEENS IN "AXCEND"

When Eric Morn signed up to beta test a new online game, he thought it would be nothing more than a fun distraction from the dregs of his everyday life -- bullies in school and mourning the loss of his twin brother. But what he didn't realize was that by activating his in-game character, he would transform into a god-like hero, ready to protect the wo-rld from impending disaster. Alongside co-players Rayne and Ruin, Eric must now face society's fear of their powers and race to prevent a global nuclear holocaust. But can Eric level up in time, or will it be game over? That's the central question of "Axcend," the new ongoing Image Comics series announced today at Image Expo by writer/artist Shane Davis, inker Michelle Delecki and colorist Morry Hollowell. The series debuts October 7. Davis told CBR that, after roughly a decade drawing for DC Comics, he is ready to embrace creator-owned work.

Greg Rucka announced during Image Expo that he is doubling down on his partnership with Image Comics, adding the supernatural series "Black Magick" to his workload in addition to his currently running Image series, "Lazarus."

Both Rucka and "Magick" artist Nicola Scott (DC's "Secret Six") were present at Image Expo to announce the series, which has been in production since 2010. Rucka recounted how he initially arrived at Image, saying that he first talked to Image partner Robert Kirkman about doing a series with the creator-driven publisher. While "Lazarus" came into existence first, Rucka revealed that "Black Magick" was what he initially discussed with Kirkman back in 2009 at WonderCon. Scott has been attached to the project since 2010.

"It's a police procedural, but it's not," Rucka said. "It's supernatural investigation, but it's not. It's a story of legacy and destiny, and bad things that go bump in the night." Rucka said they'll be doing a magazine-sized format issue, similar to what was done for the first issue of Ed Brubakerand Sean Phillips' Image series, "Criminal." "Because when Ed Brubaker has a good idea, I steal it," joked Rucka. "I have been waiting years to share this with you guys."

"Black Magick" is set to launch in October with the plan being to publish nine issues a year and for the series to run for 30 issues total.
'THANOS: THE INFINITY FINALE' COMING FROM STARLIN & LIM IN 2016

Source: Comic Book Resources | Categories: Thanos | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment
In 2016, Jim Starlin and Ron Lim will reunite for Marvel Comics' "Thanos: The Infinity Finale," which will conclude their "Thanos" trilogy. The graphic novel will directly follow their work on "Thanos: The Infinity Revelation"and "Thanos: The Infinity Relativity."In an interview with Marvel.com, Starlin offered a few hints about what's to come in "The Infinity Finale," including why he chose Annihilus to face down Thanos: "I always thought him a great and bizarre villain and wanted to up his game and the stakes he played for to a level that would make him a worthy adversary for the Mad Titan. Plus with him getting the ultimate power source, it gave me a chance to play with some concepts I've longed to toy with." According to Starlin, those concepts include, but are not limited to, infinite realities, omni-reality perception, the instability of actuality and the limits of omnipotence.He also revealed that, when Thanos returns, he will not be alone -- whether or not his supporting cast likes it. "Quite a few of Marvel’s more cosmic characters will be quite unwillingly showing up in this story, including but by no means limited to the Silver Surfer, Galactus, Gladiator, Thor, the Hulk, Black Bolt, Doctor Doom, etc," he shared. "There's also a very special and unexpected guest star stepping onto the stage near the end of our tale."As to what makes Lim the right artistic choice for this book, Starlin said, "Ron and I have always been on the same page when it comes to storytelling. We don’t see each other all that often but that aspect of our relationship has remained strong through both time and space. Maybe we’re cosmic twins? Besides, Ron started off with me on this tale, way back in the 'Thanos Annual.' It’s only fitting we leave the dance together.""'Infinity Finale' just might be my swan song with these characters," he concluded, describing the book as "a fun-filled mind-blowing ride on the cosmic rollercoaster."Jim Starlin and Ron Lim's "Thanos: The Infinity Finale" is scheduled to arrive at retailers in 2016.    
ARCHIE'S DARK CIRCLE INTRODUCES NEW TEEN HERO IN 'THE WEB'

Source: Comic Book Resources | Categories: Archie | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


The heroes of Archie's Dark Circle Comics imprint have a long legacy at the publisher. While virtually all of them have been re-imagined time and again over the years, one hero in particular has perhaps seen the most dramatic changes from one incarnation to the next.

And now, The Web will undergo its most drastic reinvention yet.

Since its 1942 debut, "The Web" has been cast as an avenging crimefighter, a harried husband, and a team of black ops agents. With the hero's new Dark Circle ongoing series, you can add "multi-ethnic teen girl cosplayer" to that mix. Coming on the heels of series like "Black Hood" and "The Fox," the new Web joins upcoming Dark Circle books "The Shield" and "The Hangman" in diversifying the tone of the line when it arrives in 2016.

CBR talked with "Web" writer, crime novelist Dave White, and the new comics scribe said that lead Jane Raymond fits in the legacy of previous Webs, that the mean streets of New Jersey make for fertile ground for a superhero story, and that cosplay and Internet fandom are a vital part of his "The Web."

Deadpool fans are going to be kept busy during next week’s Comic-Con International: San Diego with a scavenger hunt featuring sketches by Deadpool’s creator Robert Liefeld.

Also at the various parties I'll be attending. I want to give something back to the tremendous fan following Deadpool has had since I introduced him in the pages of New Mutants #98!”

The only way to know when and where Liefeld will be making the drops is by following him on Twitter, Instagram and Periscope! This year’s Comic-Con International: San Diego takes place July 9-12, so get out there and start searching!Wade Wilson has a big year ahead of him as Ryan Reynolds is starring in Deadpool’s first solo film.

COMIC-CON TO STAY IN SAN DIEGO THROUGH 2018

Comic-Con San Diego atmosphere

One of the largest pop culture conventions in the world is staying put, at least for another two years.Comic-Con organizers have reached a deal to remain in San Diego through 2018, sources confirm toVariety.

An announcement is expected later this morning.San Diego has been the home of Comic-Con since it first began in 1970, but with an average over 130,000 attendees in recent years, the event, held at the San Diego Convention Center, had begun to outgrow its Bayfront property.

Comic-Con organizers were strongly considering relocating to a larger convention center in Southern California, such as Los Angeles or Anaheim, when the current contract expires next year.

At the heart of the intense negotiations was San Diego mayor Kevin Faulconer trying to convince dozens of local hotels to keep the cost down on their room rates, which tend to skyrocket during the always sold-out event.

A spokesman for Comic-Con was not available for comment.

The 46th edition of the annual confab kicks off next week.

A new photo from Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice has been released online (via EW).

The new photo gives a new look at Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

In addition to the photo, EW also has some new quotes from Ben Affleck about the role, as well as a description of Wayne Maynor.

Affleck describes Batman as being the American version of Hamlet, saying “We accept that he’s played by actors with different interpretations.”

Ben Affleck's Batman will be an older, more tired version of the character. “He’s at the end of his run and maybe the end of his life," said Affleck. "There’s this sort of world-weariness to it.”

As photos have revealed, Ben Affleck looks the part of an older Bruce Wayne with gray streaks in his hair. What is most interesting is that EW also reveals a description of Wayne Manor, which is said to be "a desolate husk, overtaken by weeds and water-stains after years of neglect."
