Marvel is officially bringing back Squirrel Girl in her very own comic titled Unbeatable Squirrel Girl which will debut this January. The comic will be written by Ryan North who writes the webcomic Dinosaur Comics and has also written many of the Adventure Time comics. Artwork will be by Erica Henderson whose work is shown above and after the break.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the story of Squirrel Girl will begin as she enters college, and if these images are any hint, it looks like it’s going to be a fun, wacky series.

See another picture by Henderson after the break and a variant cover by Art Adams.

Dead

The Deadpool movie has been confirmed, and now we’re getting details on exactly where it stands in the cinematic universe. According to X-Men: Days of Future Past writer and producer Simon Kinberg in an interview with Comicbook.com:

“There’s definitely a sort of overall plan that we’ve all been talking about for the X-Men universe now,” Kinberg explained, “and Deadpool obviously fits into that. So yeah, I guess I would say it’s part of certainly an overall timeline and thought process that goes into these films, some of which is inspired by the comics and some which is inspired by seeing what Marvel’s done with telling a larger tapestry and linking all those movies together, even as they stand independently as well. The same kind of thought is going to go into these X-Men movies at Fox.”

The film is set to hit theaters on February 12, 2016 so we’ve still got a bit of a wait to see exactly how they manage to tie it all together.

DC Comics’ Harley Quinn Annual #1 will be a “rub’n’smell” comic book that will feature a number of unique scents that relate to the story. DC will come out with an edition of the comic that’s meant for U.S. readers, and a second edition that will be exported outside of the country. The US edition will feature smells such as leather, suntan lotion, pizza and what’s referred to in the story as “cannabisylocibe 7-A.”

Hmmm, I wonder that cannabisylocibe is supposed to be?

DC’s move to create a second edition for overseas markets makes a bit more sense now considering that last scent, as it might be rather difficult to export a comic that smells vaguely of weed. The international edition will replace the cannabis scent with the smell of fresh-cut lawn clippings.

The legendary Bruce Timm is set to executive produce a new digital Justice League cartoon for Machinima titled Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles which we can all expect to see next spring. Co-producing the cartoon will be Alan Burnett—Timm’s partner on Batman: The Animated Series. Although this was originally set to be a direct-to-video release, it’s now going to be a three-part digital series. According to Variety:

“Chronicles” is said to revolve around a newly conceived reality in the DC universe where Justice League members Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are much darker versions of the superheroes that people know.

Yes, another “dark” superhero adaptation. Still, this is Bruce Timm we’re talking about. It will likely be good either way.

Honesty, especially when it comes to communicating with children about the great wide world, is always a must. But when it comes to Star Wars, Brian Gordon’s Fowl Language comic has it pretty spot on: If a little white lie prevents a child from ever discovering Jar Jar Binks, then I don’t see the problem.

femme thor top

It was back in July that Marvel announced the new Thor would be a woman, and now it seems that Thor’s hammer is being altered to match the new character. Previously it was inscribed, “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor,” which is a bit gender specific.

When the new female Thor debuts in Thor #1 on October 1st, her hammer will read, “Whosoever holds this hammer, if she be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.” Now that works a little better in this case, don’t you think?

See the new hammer after the break.

In the latest edition of Comic Book Resources’ The Line It Is Drawn series, they asked their artists to think of some dream teams for superhero titles. Artist Axel Medellin came up with the perfect pairing: Leonardo da Vinci on an Iron Man book. He could have designed Tony Stark’s suit of armor and probably even have made it better. Yeah, I said it.

Medellin created a series of illustrations imagining what the designs would look like, and I’m completely sold on this concept.

See the rest of the designs after the break.

spider-woman 1

Spider-Woman #1 will be out this November. Written by Dennis Hopeless with art from Greg Land, the title is all about Jessica Drew and a threat to the Spider-Verse. Unfortunately, all of that is being overshadowed because of a variant cover by Milo Manara.

The cover is pictured above and has a couple of big issues. Like, “I can’t believe multiple people approved the cover” sort of issues. First of all, let’s talk about the butt. Is Spider-Woman wearing body paint? Because that’s the only explanation for her butt looking the way it does. For the record, it would be dumb if her costume was body paint.

Secondly, that pose. Manara has drawn erotic comics, but those poses should be left behind when it comes to portraying mainstream superheroes. I’m so disappointed in Marvel for not sending this one back to the drawing board.
