It’s good to be DC Co-Publisher Jim Lee. Why? Because you can get Mark Hamill to do your voicemail as the Joker. Then again, he’s probably going to get a lot of phone calls now. Hell, I would call him every day and get pissed if he answers. Fortunately for those who are not in his inner circle, you can listen to the message in the video below. [click to continue…]
Everyone’s going bananas for the upcoming animated adaptation of The Killing Joke, the popular and controversial Batman comic written by Alan Moore and featuring art and coloring by Brian Bolland and John Higgins respectively.
The film adaptation has generated a much, much milder controversy of its own among fans – apparently, quite a few people are miffed that the film doesn’t match Bolland and Higgins’ visuals from the comic. And as we all know films that take creative liberties with the source material are always terrible, while films that stick rigidly to the established form are, of course, universally acclaimed.
Emil Ryderup, also known as Plan Making Mammals, has taken it upon himself to grab hold of WB’s trailer for The Killing Joke and give it a tweak and a fresh coat of paint to make it look a bit more the original graphic novel. You can check out his version, as well as a comparison of the two, below. [click to continue…]
For those of you who weren’t aware, DC Comics has revamped their logo…again. Naturally, some people aren’t keen on it. Case in point: Bobby Timony, an artist and illustrator, posted his “corrected” version of the new logo on Twitter, which adds a taste of the DC Bullet logo of yore. Personally, I dig it more than the official version. What do you think?

We don’t know why this exists, but it’s been brought to us by the fine folks at Cryptozoic and DC Comics and costs a mere three American dollarydos (the comic books are sold individually). It becomes available in December of 2016 apparently, so you can finally build that comics shop for your Hot Toys figures.

Warner Bros. has been moving the pieces into place for their cinematic universe for the last couple of years now – not with the same pace, precision and, arguably, skill that Marvel spent honing their own film world over the last decade, but they’re working on it. To that end, the studio has released this artwork featuring the complete Justice League line-up.
They also dropped the first footage from the upcoming Wonder Woman film on last night’s CW special DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League along with features on Ezra Miller’s Flash, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ray Fisher’s Cyborg and a surprise look at Green Lantern Corps.
Check it all out in the videos below.

The Dark Knight is about to get a whole lot brighter.
Toy collectors and Batman fans, rejoice! This set of multicolored Batman action figures is on the way. Last year, DC ran a poll featuring a bunch of abandoned toy designs and invited fans to vote for the one they wanted. This colorful collection was the resounding winner, and the toys are now in production. Hoorah! (Click the preview image above for a closer look at the toys).
And now, for a little comics history…

We’re used to our superheroes looking young and fit, but artist Eddie Liu put some thought into what would happen if those heroes aged and decide to retire to whereever it is retired superheroes go.
I think the Wonder Woman is my favorite. I can totally picture her playing Mahjong with the older ladies down in Florida.

Artist Allison Sohn clearly lives in a very creative household. She recently posted this gorgeous commission by her husband Adam Hughes.
This set of four pieces features some of your favorite DC ladies in the style of Alphonse Mucha’s “The Four Seasons”. They’re done in color Copic Marker with colored pencils, a little paint, and ink.
I can’t help hoping he does a variation on this for fans to purchase.
Thanks to Allison for sharing it!

I’m doubly amused about this because Thomas the Tank Engine is featured in an add for Marvel’s Ant-Man at the moment, but this SDCC Exclusive Thomas & Friends Super Friends Minis DC mashup set is wild.
I dunno, what do you think?
