First Ever DC Comics and Hero Initiative Collaboration: Justice League of America #50

The Hero Initiative, a charity dedicated to helping comic creators in medical or financial need, most proudly announces their new partnership in the Justice League Of America #50 project with DC Comics. This is the first collaboration with DC comics ever and Hero is chomping at the bit to pull the collection together. The call has gone out and dozens of artists are putting pen to paper. DC has generously donated 100 blank-covered cardstock copies of Justice League Of America #50 to Hero, and work is being created by well-known stars such as Jim Lee, Alex Ross, George Perez, Jason Bone, Jim Valentino, and many many more.

Deconstructing Lichtenstein: Source Comics Revealed and Credited

Needless to say, Roy Lichtenstein has few fans in the comic book industry. Art Spieglman, author of Maus, summarized the industry's feelings in an interview with Publishers Weekly. "Lichtenstein did no more or less for comics than Andy Warhol did for soup."

Batman: Plutocrat

By their nature as vigilantes, acting outside or above the law, most superheroes have a troubling undercurrent of aristocratic, undemocratic, authoritarian values. Only the hero, not the police, judges, lawmakers, and average citizen, can effectively protect and improve the city they patrol, and god help anyone who gets in their way. No one exemplifies these tendencies more than Batman, the ultimate aristocratic hero.

Detective Comics 27 – Printed And Production Art Side By Side

So anyway, Mark Seifert posted those Detective Comics #27 production pages earlier today, and I was taken aback by just how much more defined they were than the published art. So I found the comparative pages, pages 2 to 5 from the comic, to compare them all against…

English, American – supermen all look the same to the real superpowers

Super Friends Valentines from 1980

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and for a lot of us, that means it's time once again to try to find the best way to express our feelings to that special someone through the medium of a brightly colored piece of paper with a pun on it.

Classic Teen Heroes Boogie Down in the Art of Bill Walko

If all superheroes lived out their lives in ways that mirrored the social activities of Archie Comics and Flintstones character spinoff series, the world would look a lot like the works of artist of Bill Walko. Walko has composed some lively sequences involving well-known faces from the Teen Titans, X-Men and Wonder Twins that would fit nicely into their own animated Hanna-Barbera teen bands.

Even on a Valentine, Hal Jordan can't commit to more than being someone's "pal." I find that amusing.

Themyscira Industries? *sigh* A group of teenagers hanging around in Wonder Woman's basement? Well, it has potential, I guess.

I wonder if that script will ever be leaked.

I'm pretty sure it has. Oodles of people have read it.
