CHECK OUT COMIC VINE’S REVIEW OF FLASH GORDON

THE Comic Vine Review by Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero

If you ever seen Flash Gordon in animated, live-action or printed form, you will be in for a treat. If you're not familiar with the characters, get ready to meet them for the first time.

Whether you've read any of Flash Gordon's old exploits or watched the 80s movie or various animated attempts, the idea is known to pretty much everyone. Flash Gordon is a normal human who has been placed in a situation to save Earth from invaders.

The Good
Dynamite has revived several franchises over the years and many have been with great success. While I was never a true die-hard Flash Gordon fan, I became more than familiar with the characters due to the different portrayals over the years. I've enjoyed the different revivals Dynamite has taken with old properties and thought I'd give this series a shot, mainly due to Francesco Francavilla's involvement with the variant covers. I was more than pleasantly surprised.

The first wise decision was to keep this grounded in the original time period of 1934. The issue captures the feeling of what a Flash Gordon story should be like. The art is amazing. Daniel Indro is a name you should take note of. He gives that painted feel full of detail yet still remains true to the pulp-feel of the time period. Check out the first five pages below.For the full review visit Comic Vine!

BATMAN ATTEMPTS TO APPREHEND JOKER IN NEW "SUICIDE SQUAD" VIDEO
05/28/15 @ 12:11 pm EST
Source: Comic Book Resources | Categories: Batman | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Just yesterday, the first video from "Suicide Squad's" set featuring the Batmobile surfaced, thusrevealing that the Dark Knight will play a part in the upcoming Warner Bros./DC Entertainmentfeature film. Now, thanks to new fan shot footage, we know that not only will the Batmobile be featured in David Ayer's supervillain team-up movie, but so will Batman himself. The action-packed -- at least compared to most other fan videos -- clip features a capeless Batman riding on top of Joker's flashy car as it takes a sharp turn.

Here's the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2hCJ2oqjUc

Considering how risky this stunt looks, odds are that's not Ben Affleck in the cowl in the above video. The actor has not yet officially been connected to "Suicide Squad," although it wasrumored that he was on set at the start of May.

Additionally, a pair of pics of both Joker's car and the Batmobile have been uploaded to Imgur.



There's also another video featuring the Batmobile in action; you can see the iconic super-car peel out in pursuit of the Joker at the video's halfway mark.

ED PISKOR’S ‘HOP HOP FAMILY TREE’ TO BECOME MONTHLY COMIC

Ed Piskor’s bestselling book series Hip Hop Family Tree will released beginning in August as a monthly comic, a first for Fantagraphics Books. Each issue will feature a new cover and splash page, “director’s commentary” from Piskor and other extras.

Debuting in 2013, the Eisner-nominated series chronicles the history of hip hop, tracing the genre back to its origins in the South Bronx. The 32-page first issue shines a spotlight on those break-dancers, graffiti artists, DJs and MCs who formed hip-hop culture in the early 1970s.

In another first for the 39-year-old publisher, Hip Hop Family Tree will also feature exclusive variant covers produced for retailers that order more than 1,000 copies. Each inspired by the design of Marvel’s 25th anniversary covers published in 1986, and features a different figure from the history of hip hop.

“If you would have told me a year ago that we were going to publish a monthly comic book for the first time ever, with variant covers no less, I would have made a face,” Associate Publisher Eric Reynolds said in a statement. “But Ed is a singular talent, and Hip Hop Family Tree has proven to be a singular property. When Ed first floated the idea of a comic book series, we jumped. I knew he could pull it off in the way that few ever could.”

IDW TEASES PROJECT WITH "NEUROMANCER" AUTHOR

IDW Publishing has a new project in the works with sci-fi author William Gibson, the writer of cyberpunk classic "Neuromancer." Full details have yet to be released, but IDW teased the project Tuesday on Twitter -- with the unexpected and seemingly impossible release date of June 6, 1945 (with 2016 following in smaller letters).



Gibson himself provided some more insight into the project on his Twitter, saying it's a four-issue miniseries written in collaboration with actor Michael St. John Smith, and broadly described its origins as "Band of Brothers vs Blackwater."
BUSINESS AS USUAL, MOSTLY, FOR HOUSTON COMIC BOOK SHOPS DESPITE SEVERE FLOODING

After severe flooding hit Houston earlier this week, many local comic shops in the area report only slight delays and, fortunately, no major damage.

The damage "wasn't anywhere near as bad as it could have been," 8th Dimension Comics and Games manager Jeremy Bulloch told CBR News. Likewise, Third Planet manager Jim Stanley shared, "We were open our regular hours… We still did business all day."

Though most local shops reported that their places of business were fine, not all managed to come out completely unscathed. For instance, the 1960 W. location of Bedrock City Comicssuffered some minor flooding. "We are at the right angle with our store in our whole strip center that, when it rains really hard and the wind is ripping, it'll push it directly at our door, and it always finds a way under somehow," explained manager Lauro Guerra. "We were really lucky, because it was controllable. It wasn't like we got here and everything was floating everywhere."

"One thing that I can say is that we have a lot of really cool customers," Guerra added. "People were coming in that were volunteering to help clean up stuff… We have really cool people that try to help us." (Source: CBR)

HAVE A SPARE $100,000? A ‘STAR WARS: BATTLE POD’ COULD BE YOURS

For die-hard fans, this may be the time to consider what’s more important: a car, a home andpossibly food, or the Star Wars: Battle Pod arcade game. Take your time; Bandai Namco won’t begin taking orders until next month.

The price is indeed steep. According to Kotaku, the standard home version (below) of the firstStar Wars arcade game ages (15 years, maybe?) will set you back about $35,000. For the premium version (above), however, you may have to consider a second mortgage: $100,000 gets you either the Rebel pilot helmet or Darth Vader helmet exteriors, leather seats that move and react to the game, carpeting and a specially bound owner’s manual.

Each cabinet is numbered, with the owner’s name both on a plaque and on the game’s credit scroll. So, yeah, that’s for $100,000, plus shipping.

ELEKTRA MAY BE COMING TO DAREDEVIL SEASON 2

Elektra_3

A report from Comicbook.com says that two audition videos hit the web today and then were quickly deleted. The videos show two different women auditioning for the same role, which appears to be Elektra Natchios for the second season of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix.

The two actresses in the videos were Louisa Mignone and Shiva Kalaiselvan, both of whom have a look that might work for the character. The audition tapes included two scenes… one with her interrogating a thug and the other likely the first time Matt and Elektra meet.

Mignone Shiva

During a flashback of Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson in college there was a reference to Matt’s Greek ex-girlfriend… And we also have met Stick and saw the back of Stone. So it would make sense that the second season would feature the Hand and Elektra.

Now the question is, do they just focus on the ninjas… or do we get Bullseye? I’d like to see them hold Bullseye back until season 3.

ZDARSKY AND HENDERSON SET THE TABLE WITH NEW JUGHEAD SERIES

Hamburgers and a crown made of paper. The mysterious “S” shirt and a dog named Hot Dog. Did we mention Hamburgers? All of these things are synonymous with the greatest comic book character of all time: Jughead! This October, Archie Comics is launching a new ongoing JUGHEAD series by the unbeatable team of Chip Zdarsky and Erica Henderson!

Featuring the adventures of Archie’s hamburger-loving best friend, the new series will debut with an all new #1 issue from two of the comic book industry’s brightest stars. Zdarsky, known for his work on the hit Image series Sex Criminals, will bring his unique brand of comedy to comics’ biggest jokester.

“Jughead is the one character that I totally attempted to emulate when I was younger,” said Zdarsky. “Cool without being cool, voracious appetite, a slacker who doesn't always live up to his potential.”



JUGHEAD #1 Variant Cover by Chip Zdarsky

Joining Zdarsky on JUGHEAD will be Erica Henderson, best known for her work on Marvel’sUnbeatable Squirrel Girl, whose emotive artistic style and knack for capturing characters in their silliest moments perfectly suits the gluttonous teenager.

The new series will run alongside the upcoming ARCHIE series, launching on July 8, by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples, telling off-the-wall and hilarious stories in the new and revamped Riverdale.On getting inside of Jughead’s head, Zdarsky said, “He has moments where he shines and then goes back to being cool and zen. I love Jughead. He's the teen who's comfortable with himself, which is such rare, weird thing.”

JUGHEAD #1 will be available in comic book stores and digitally on October 7.
