DC PRESENTS 'GENERATION ONE: AGE OF MYSTERIES'02/18/20 @ 9:43 am EST
Dynamite announces a fun and crazy new crossover for June, Warlord of Mars Attacks
Just when people thought Dynamite could not think of more fun crossovers! Warlord of Mars Attacks
takes everything to a new level of unexpected meta crossovers!
Who can best defend against a Martian invasion? A fearless human hero adopted by the red planet, the one and only John Carter! After a lander disturbs the Martian surface, everyone's favorite big-headed sadistic aliens lead a brutal invasion force toward Earth. Meanwhile on Earth, a man from 1868 Virgina comes out of stasis.
Writer Jeff Parker (Aquaman, James Bond Origin, Batman '66
) is joined by artist Dean Kotz (Dungeons & Dragons, Krampus
). While Omi Remalante Jr. (Red Sonja, Agent 47: Hitman
) and Hassan Ostmane-Elhaou (Red Sonja, Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt
) provide colors and letters, respectively.
Spectacular covers will be available by Dave Johnson (Batman, Deadpool, 100 Bullets
), Marco D'Alfonso (I Am Groot, Vision
), Ramon Villalobos (America, Nighthawk
) and retro trading card inspired ones by Ben Caldwell (Red Sonja, Wonder Woman, Prez
Dynamite is the home for epic crossovers, treating fans to multiverse spanning epics including Swords of Sorrow
. John's darling Dejah Thoris has teamed up with both Vampirella and Barbarella! The crew of Battlestar Galactica met...the crew of Battlestar Galactica. Coincidental lookalikes Ash Williams and Elvis Presley teamed up in Army of Darkness/Bubba Ho-Tep
. AND Red Sonja & Vampirella are on their way to Riverdale. Plus so many more! If readers liked those, they will love Warlord of Mars Attacks
"John Carter meeting the Mars Attacks! Martians may sound insane, but I assure you it works, because Dean Kotz is drawing the hell out of it. It’s easily the most bizarre sci-fi concept I’ve been able to do yet, and the wildest mashup yet," said writer Jeff Parker. "And if you’re a Burroughs fan, you’ll appreciate some deep cuts that we put in."
Artist Dean Kotz shared, "Working on my favorite Burroughs character with Jeff and Nate is a dream come true. Jeff seamlessly drops the original sci-fi swashbuckler smack dab in the middle of a retro alien invasion that spans two planets and hundreds of years. The blockbuster-scale story features so many interesting locales and characters. I never know what Jeff's gonna throw at me next. And, thanks to those nasty Mars Attack! invaders, I get to draw A LOT of fun property damage."
Meanwhile, editor Nate Cosby has his own fantastical origin story for this series. "True story, Jeff, Dean, Omi & Hassan came to my house and tied me up and said if I don’t let them make a comic where John Carter beats the holy hell out of the green dudes from Mars Attacks, they were gonna keep me tied up and kick my shins and not let me have cereal. I love cereal, and I don’t like my shins kicked, so I said OK. They let me go, and the comic is fever-dreamingly awesome. So everything worked out in the end."
Warlord of Mars Attacks

'THE ETERNALS' WILL REPORTEDLY RESURRECT ANOTHER 'AVENGERS: ENDGAME' STAR02/18/20 @ 9:27 am EST
Curt Swan, one of the artists most responsible for defining the look of Superman, was born 100 years ago today. The artist, who passed away in 1996, left DC with such a wealth of material -- both published and left in inventory drawers -- that unseen images from his time as a DC artist have continued to appear more or less right up until the current day, with a story he drew -- "An Enemy Within" -- appearing in Action Comics
#1000 in 2018 with a new script provided by Crisis on Infinite Earths
scribe Marv Wolfman (and a custom Dynamic Forces variant created from a Swan sketch).
Swan joined the Superman family of books in 1954 when he became the artist on Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen
, and would go on (along with collaborator Murphy Anderson) to develop the look of the definitive Superman for 30 years. He was eventually let go when, following the events of Crisis on Infinite Earths
, the Superman titles got a major overhaul from writer/artist John Byrne.
During his time on the titles, Swan would draw the Superman family in Action Comics
, Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane
, Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen
, World's Finest
, and the Superboy stories in Adventure Comics
After successfully pitching an adventure strip that ran in newspapers (Yellow Hair
, about a blonde boy raised by Native Americans), Swan would be hired on in 1956 as the regular artist on the Superman
newspaper strip -- material that has recently been reprinted by IDW Publishing.
During his time on DC's main-line comic books, Swan would co-create dozens of characters, including Terra-Man, the Jack Nimball Toyman, Vartox, and Master Jailer, some of whom have gone on to feature prominent on The CW's Supergirl
Swan's final work as the regular artists of the Superman titles was in the beloved story "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?," which gave the pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths
Superman a happily-ever-after. The story was written by Alan Moore and the first half, somewhat ironically, was inked by George Perez of Crisis on Infinite Earths
fame. After John Byrne left Superman
in 1988, Swan would come back briefly to hold down the fort until the series' new regular artist, George Perez, could get up to speed.
Swan's last Superman story was a short tale that appeared shortly after he passed away in Superman: The Wedding Album
, the issue in which Superman and Lois Lane get married. (via ComicBook

NEW SET PHOTO FROM ‘THE FLASH’ REVEALS GODSPEED’S RETURN02/17/20 @ 4:32 pm EST
Thanos’ journey seemingly concluded when Iron Man snapped him out of existence in the final scenes of Avengers: Endgame
. Although fans watched Thanos turn to dust, he may return in a cameo in Marvel’s upcoming film, The Eternals
The movie follows a group of extraterrestrials who have been on Earth for thousands of years called the Eternals. What’s interesting is that Thanos is actually closely related to the group.
In the comics, Thanos’ parents were Eternals named Sui-San and A’lars, though he was born with a slight deviation. Thanos carries what is called a Deviant gene, which explains his physical appearance.
The Deviants are the main enemy of the Eternals and will play a part in the new movie. With Thanos having a clear link with both groups, it is possible that Marvel features a young version of Thanos in the film – though nothing official has been confirmed. (via Cheat Sheet
is set to hit theaters on November 6, 2020.

Promo art by Tony Moore 'LOKI' TV SERIES MAY SET UP KANG THE CONQUEROR IN THE MCU02/17/20 @ 3:46 pm EST
Horror reaches new heights in SHADOWMAN #1 this May.New York Times
bestselling writer CULLEN BUNN (Venom
) and the terrifyingly talented JON DAVIS-HUNT (Clean Room
) pull you into the darkness. In this brand-new series, Jack Boniface, a.k.a. SHADOWMAN, faces the terrors that tear at the fabric of humanity's world. Every chapter of SHADOWMAN is a standalone descent into horror while something far more sinister emerges from shadows.
Take a look at Jon and Eisner-winning colorist JORDIE BELLAIRE'S engrossing artwork below. Art by Jon Davis-Hunt and Jordie Bellaire
"We're taking Shadowman in some directions he's never been taken before," said Cullen. "He's confronting a growing supernatural threat that is popping up all over the world. We are introducing the concept of the Blight, which is a weakening of the veil between our world and the Deadside. And these Blights occur in places of great sorrow and misery and evil." Cullen also teased a new threat that will have a major impact beyond this series. "We're also introducing a new villain who will be changing the face of the supernatural in the Valiant Universe."Art by Jon Davis-Hunt and Jordie Bellaire
"If you like horror, or action, or superheroes (and certainly if you like all three of those things), then this is definitely the book for you," stated Jon. "If you don’t like any of those things, then this book will change your mind. And did I mention the demon punching? Demons get punched. A lot."
Art by Jon Davis-Hunt and Jordie Bellaire
Editor HEATHER ANTOS says this is the perfect team to craft a frightening new take on Shadowman. "This is a horror comic dream team that looks and feels unlike anything I've experienced before. Everything is just... clicking. Each member of the creative team is a true master of their craft... and their craft this year is horror."
Art by Jon Davis-Hunt and Jordie Bellaire
The terrifying tale starts in SHADOWMAN #1 on May 20th, featuring colors by Jordie Bellaire, letters by Clayton Cowles, and covers by Jon Davis-Hunt, Rod Reis, Dave Johnson, Tony Moore, and Jeff Dekal.

'TALKING DEAD' GUESTS FOR 'THE WALKING DEAD' MIDSEASON PREMIERE SHOW02/17/20 @ 3:23 pm EST
Marvel’s coming Disney+ Loki
show may set up Kang the Conqueror as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s next big bad. The show, starring Tom Hiddleston, will see the God of Mischief embody his nefarious persona from 2012’s The Avengers
. A more reformed version of the character was killed by Thanos at the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War
. However, Avengers: Endgame
revived the 2012 Loki when he escaped with the Tesseract.
That version of Loki will lead his own Disney+ series, using the Tesseract (the Space Stone) to meddle with history. After fans were given their first tease of Loki
via an image of the character in the 1970s, an MCU Disney+ Super Bowl commercial briefly showed Loki sporting a Time Variance Authority jumpsuit. In the comics, the TVA is an organization that monitors the multiverse and subsequent timelines, eliminating those deemed too dangerous.Loki
will reportedly introduce Kang the Conqueror, a time traveler who comes into contact with the TVA on more than one occasion. In the comics, Kang has close ties to both the Avengers and Fantastic Four. (via Screen Rant
is slated to begin airing on Disney+ sometime in 2021.
