10. More details on Doctor Who Comics Day: new website and variant covers

We’re less than a month away from the second annual Doctor Who Comics Day on August 15th, and if our SDCC exclusive details on Paul Cornell‘s four Doctor series (not to mention the book’s first six pages) aren’t enough to get you vworping with excitement, check out the recent updates to the tumblr Titan has set up for the occasion. There you’ll find a trailer for the five-part crossover arc (which kicks-off in connection with the Doctor Who Comics Day celebration) featuring Doctor’s Ten through Twelve, their companions, and The War Doctor.

The four Doctor series is illustrated by Neil Edwards (Assassin’s Creed) and officially debuts on August 12th, but you’ll only get the chance to meet Doctor Who comic creators and artists if you drop by a participating store the following Saturday for Doctor Who Comics Day. The tumblr has a list of of the talent you can catch at in-store signings, as well as a peak at the local cosplayers scheduled to appear. Not enough? Most stores will also feature Doctor Who themed giveaways, contests and games.

My favorite two variants so far:

11. New Black Lightning Archive: DC, Tony Isabella Reconcile

Black Lightning 4“Dogs and cats, living together!” – that’s what immediately popped into my mind yesterday when I read Tony Isabella praising DC on Facebook for how it was treating him in regard to Black Lightning.I’ve never seen the original contract between DC and Isabella in regard to Black Lightning so I have nothing to say of substance in regard to the property’s legal status, but as anyone who has followed Tony’s online writing over the years can tell you, Isabella’s statements about DC’s treatment of him and his landmark creation have not exactly been complimentary. That changed, however, yesterday, when Isabella called attention to an Amazon listing of the April 2016 release of Black Lightning, volume 1, the first of what could be a series of collections featuring DC’s first African-American superhero to star in an an eponymous book.

According to Isabella, the rapprochement is the result of outreach by Dan Didio and Geoff Johns, and Isabella is confident that DC will treat him fairly in regard to the payment of royalties. He also raised the possibility of doing more work for DC given sufficient reader demand; the prospect of Isabella working with, say, the creators of the revived Milestone line on a multi-generational crossover is particularly intriguing, given certain thematic resonances with Milestone’s nuanced reflections on creative identity.

To say that Isabella’s announcement is the most unexpected Facebook post of the year is an understatement — it’s one of the most dramatic turnarounds I’ve seen in decades of reading about comics-related disputes, and kudos to all involved for bringing about what I hope will be a truly lasting peace in our time.

12. Marvel Kills the Game as they Unveil Rap Crossover Covers

This October, Marvel will release a set of variants that pay tribute to famous rap albums.  While I’m not personally big on rap, I appreciate the amount of work and dedication put into making these covers look just right.  The concept is unique and ties comics into mainstream culture in a way we haven’t typically seen.

13. SDCC ’15: New Eighth Doctor series and holiday special announced at Titan Doctor Who comics panel

photo (2)

UK based Titan Comics brought plenty of Doctor Who comic news across the pond for their appearance at SDCC. In addition to assembling some of the artists and writers behind their SDCC 2015 exclusive story and upcoming four Doctor crossover, panel moderator and Executive Editor Andrew James announced a new mini-series and holiday special both coming this Fall.

The panel kicked off with Senior Editor Steve White leading the room in singing Happy Birthday to Ninth Doctor series artist George Mann before James took the podium to premiere a teaser trailer for the forthcoming four Doctor crossover as series writer Paul Cornell looked on. Fans got a taste of never before seen artwork from series artist Neil Edwards, including an image of Doctors Ten, Eleven and Twelve gathered around the TARDIS console with companions Gabby, Alice and Clara. A title card proclaimed the crossover would feature four companions, which begs the question of who the fourth might be.

The crossover hits stores August 12 to coincide with the second annual Doctor Who comics day the following Saturday, August 15. The celebration will feature appearances from Doctor Who comics creators “at over 2,000 stores and libraries world-wide,” according to James.

“This all comes about because Clara Oswald desperately tries to prevent what she refers to as ‘some kind of multi-Doctor event’ which she doesn’t want to happen,” said Cornell, describing the basic premise of the series. “Thankfully, she fails to do that completely.” As with any multi-Doctor tale, from early seventies television serial “The Three Doctors” on down through 2013’s “Day of the Doctor,” disagreements and power struggles between the iterations take center stage.

“Ten and Twelve really don’t see eye to eye. Twelve can’t explain how he’s even alive to the other two,” Cornell said, noting that the story takes place before Doctors Ten and Eleven meet up in “Day of the Doctor.” He acknowledged that how the pair don’t remember this earlier encounter is one of the main points his series will have to explain.

“Ten thinks Twelve must have done something diabolical to even exist, he calls him an ‘abomination.’ And Twelve says, ‘Abomination? Dalek word. Nice.'” Cornell’s take on the Twelfth Doctor includes further witticisms such as his referring to Doctors Ten and Eleven as “Manic Pixie Dream Doctors,” leaving the Eleventh Doctor in the unenviable position of trying to help the other two manage to get along. He promised that the story, which he said was “all about a photograph, the nature of which means the end of the universe,” would feature some compelling cliffhangers, lots of old monsters and some surprise cameos.

Cornell wrapped up by saying: “All the Doctor Who titles are coming to a halt to clear the way for this for five weeks, and then they’ll all be relaunched again with any survivors.”

One of those titles is the recently launched Ninth Doctor comic series. To the right of Cornell on the panel was Cavan Scott and Blair Shedd, respectively the writer and artist behind the series. Scott remarked that he couldn’t quite believe he was writing for a Doctor that had already reached the 10th anniversary of their appearance and then death.

“We wanted to do a big event to celebrate that,” Scott said, “and wanted to do things we hadn’t seen the Doctor do very often in that year.” He said that Nine is still dealing with the Time War, leaving him a “very, very raw, a man who’s remembering how to be the Doctor.” Scott felt the TARDIS team of Rose Tyler and Jack Harkness helped the Doctor with that, saying he loved the brilliant way that group interacted. He also noted the flirting between Jack and the Doctor and Rose, which he likened to a love triangle that was perpetually spinning.

In terms of story, Scott explained that annihilation of the Time Lords left a “vacuum of power” that two warring factions are vying to fill. This leads the Ninth Doctor, Scott said, “to come face to face with people who are saying, ‘We are the new champions of Time’ and he might not like that.”

Scott added another Doctor to the growing roster of Time Lords he’s written for when he paired with Mann on writing duties for the SDCC exclusive story “Selfie.” James explained that the origins of the Con-centric story, which he described as a “delight” to work on, lay truly with the writers as his brief for the tale only asked that they do a story set in San Diego with the Twelfth Doctor and Clara.

“We spent an evening on Skype arguing, basically,” said Mann, who elaborated that the loose brief from James gave them the freedom to go anywhere in the city, but that both writers agreed they wanted to do a story at the convention center which they saw as “the heart of comics.” This was why the story opens with the TARDIS landing in the middle of the convention’s main floor,  in a full-page shot that James explained took artist Rachael Stott weeks to complete as she kept adding detail and costumes for con goers that referenced a variety of fandoms.

Scott said he and Mann asked themselves what summed up a convention these days and decided it was the many selfies taken by attendees. This led to the concept of an alien that could only be seen in selfies, and what endgame such a creature would have. “So if you look on your phones and see this,” Scott intoned in an ominous voice, gesturing to a slide showing a panel of the alien, “run.”

James segued into the announcement portion of the panel by saying that the Titan editors so loved Stott’s work on “Selfie” that she was the first artist invited to work on year two of the Twelfth Doctor series. Stott will support returning writer Robbie Morrison. “Selfie” writing team Scott and Mann will also return to a Twelfth Doctor story in a holiday special due out in early December. “Doctor Who is synonymous with Christmas back in the UK and around the world,” James said, “but we’re going to go slightly more international with the holiday.”

The other big announcement from the panel was the release of a new mini-series featuring the Eighth Doctor. James showed a slide of the series’ issue one cover by Alice X. Zhang, whose oil painting-style imagery depicts actor Paul McGann. McGann’s brief on-screen tenure as the Doctor only included one ill-fated TV movie, meant to test the waters for a possible BBC series collaboration with Fox. Though the film is much maligned, fans largely agree McGann himself shined in the role.

Doctor_Who_8D_01_Alice_X_Zhang

Due out October 28, the new series will be written by Mann with art by Emma Vieceli. “It’s a different format to the mini-series you’ve seen before,” Mann said, explaining that this was a later version of the Eighth Doctor, as seen just prior to “Night of the Doctor.” That television short, which served as a prequel to “Day of the Doctor,” was well-received by fans and may have paved the way for Titan to feature him in comic form.

Mann himself stated the short had personally made him want a season’s worth of Eighth Doctor stories. As a result, he wrote each issue as it’s own “episode” and “separate adventure.” Issue one will deal with a “village under siege set in the modern day,” but the issues will also see the Doctor travel to distant worlds and introduce new villains. Mann also said that we’ll meet a new companion named “Josie” who will be central to the stories, calling her “the backbone of the series.”

The Eleventh Doctor year two sees the introduction of a new writer to pair with Robbie Williams, Si Spurrier, who sent a video greeting to play to the panel introducing himself. Artist Simon Fraser returns, joined by newcomer Warren Pleece. The Tenth Doctor year two brings back Nick Abadzis on writing, while returning artist Elena Casagrande will be joined by Eleonora Carlini.

14. New Heroes: Reborn Trailer Features the Return of Original Series Stars

“Memories are funny things.  The good ones fill our lives with meaning— with context, with clarity…but other memories can deceive.  The ones that make you believe you know the truth— those are the dangerous ones.  When you look back at the decisions you’ve made in your life, the one thing you don’t wanna feel is regret.”

— Noah Bennet

In a cryptic opening statement that summarizes series creator Tim Kring’s entire relationship with the Heroes franchise, Jack Coleman aka Noah Bennet introduces the world of Heroes: Reborn.  This brave new world is different than the one we left at the end of Heroes‘ final season in 2010, but will feel incredibly familiar to those that stuck around until the end of the original series:

The fresh faces of the 13 episode mini-series are dwarfed in this new footage by the return of original series regulars including Sendhil Ramamurthy as Mohinder Suresh, Cristine Rose as Angela Petrelli, Masi Oka as Hiro Nakamura, Greg Grunberg as Matt Parkman, Jimmy Jean-Louis as The Haitian, and Noah Gray-Cabey as Micah Sanders.

It looks like the plot is going to echo some old X-Men storylines, with the government hunting down meta-humans.  The cheese-factor of the series looks like it will be back in full force, as the trailer features an awful lot of samurai and even an act-into-the-camera moment from an unnamed character whose ability seems to be controlling auroras…how that actually affects the world in any way has yet to be seen.

Heroes: Reborn debuts this fall.

15. Suicide Squad’s Sizzle Reel in Glorious 1080p!

With a huge frown on their collective entity’s face and a couple of stiletto-wearing foot stomps to boot, Warner Bros. has released an official copy of the Suicide Squad sizzle reel that leaked after being shown at a panel during SDCC.  The trailer comes with a statement:

“Warner Bros. Pictures and our anti-piracy team have worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours to contain the Suicide Squad footage that was pirated from Hall H on Saturday. We have been unable to achieve that goal. Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed. We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation.”
– Sue Kroll, President Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures

Deadline and a few other outlets have speculated that the leak of Suicide Squad and Deadpool footage meant exclusively for SDCC attendees could mean the end of the media practice.  Deadline characterizes this type of footage as a “gift,” and it is.  However, the reality of the internet is that information can be disseminated far and wide at increasingly rapid speeds.  There’s no way to stop this sort of thing from happening in the future, and not showing any promotional material at all seems like an emotionally driven reaction that ultimately hurts all parties, movie studios like Warner Bros. included.

It doesn’t make sense for companies to fight the future.  There’s plenty of room for innovation left in the internet.  Corporations simply need to embrace that.

17. SDCC ’15: Marvel Announces the First Spider-Man/Deadpool Team Up Ever!

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like for a comic to be composed entirely of one-liners, wonder no more.  This Fall, writer Joe Kelly and artist Ed McGuinnes are teaming up to create the very first Spider-Man/Deadpool crossover EVER.  No further news has been announced at this time, so we can only speculate on whether the world will survive the weight of these heroes’ collective puns.

18. SDCC ’15: Marvel goes BIG; announces SQUIRREL GIRL & BLADE Series, Ms. Marvel Audiobook

During the “Women of Marvel” panel at SDCC today, the House of Ideas announced several new series as a part of their All-New, All-Different relaunch.

When solicits for over 45 titles came out, a large number of fans worried about the fate of one of their favorite characters: Squirrel Girl.  Her newest series had been launched earlier this year to incredible acclaim, but Marvel had not announced the continuation of her title the way they had trumpeted other continuing series like Ms. Marvel and Spider-Gwen.  However, fear not!  The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl will relaunch this October with a new #1.  Writer Ryan North and artist Erica Henderson will continue their work on the title.

Unbeatable-Squirrel-Girl_688x1044

To add some fuel to the fire of the rumor about Wesley Snipes’ potential return to the role of Blade, Marvel announced a new Blade series at the panel as well.  While a promotional image from the series leaked from Marvel’s retailer panel earlier this weekend, we now have more specifics about the title.  To begin in October, the series will be written by Tim Seeley, drawn by Logan Faerber, and focus on Fallon Grey, a sixteen year old girl who lives in a rural part of Oregon.  She’s a star student and the queen social bee, but her stellar life is suddenly disrupted by an unnamed “terror.  As fearsome supernatural forces hunt Fallon, she’ll come face to face with something even more shocking than the monsters on her tail. Eric Brooks…Blade…her father?! And in each other, they’ll discover the purpose they’ve each been struggling to find.”

Blade_The_Vampire_Hunter_Vol_6_3_Textless

In an interesting experiment, Marvel will republish Ms. Marvel Volume 1: No Normal as an audiobook through GraphicAudio.  While GraphicAudio has adapted a number of Marvel prose novels in the past, this will be the first time the company will take a story straight from the comic itself.  This title will be released on August 17th.

20. SDCC ’15: The Wicked + The Divine’s Newest B-Cover is Obscene

Over the course of The Wicked + The Divine, Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, Matthew Wilson, and Clayton Cowles have distinguished themselves from the pack for their strong cover designs.  The A-Covers, which for the first 11 issues featured close ups of characters’ heads before culminating in tragedy, earned McKelvie and Wilson an Eisner nomination this year.  The B-Covers have not been tied by a common theme, but have instead become known as a place for artists to visually explore and reinterpret Team Wic+Div’s world.

Some great pieces from the first year include Brian Lee O’Malley’s interpretation of lead character Laura’s room:

wicdiv02

and Kevin Wada’s exploration of The Morrigan’s and Baphomet’s underworldly relationship:

wada

These pieces were beautiful, but neither of them were as abstract or patently absurd as the B-Cover to issue 14, illustrated by Canadian musician Grimes:
wicdivEach issue of this arc focuses on an individual god.  Issue 12 was centered around Inanna and August’s issue 13 introduces Tara, who has not been seen, only discussed (often disparagingly), up until now.  The solicit for issue 14 hasn’t been released yet, so it’s anyone’s guess as to what this cover represents.  If I had to guess, I’d say it references The Morrigan or a certain another god that was recently introduced…

Also, Grimes is ridiculous:

In 2009, Boucher (Grimes) and her then-boyfriend from Tennessee constructed a 20-foot houseboat named Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, with the intention to sail down the Mississippi River from Minneapolis to New Orleans. The cargo included food (chickens and 20 pounds of potatoes), a typewriter, and a gifted copy of Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Unfortunately for the pair, the chickens caught the eastern equine encephalitis virus and perished soon into the trip, so their diet consisted mainly of potatoes. The couple adopted the names Veruschka and Zelda Xox for the trip. Due to their disregard for local boating regulations and the houseboat’s engine trouble, the journey was cut short, as the houseboat was impounded along with the food.
