a huge loss to the comic book world ...he was truly one of the greats

In Memoriam: Carmine Infantino (1925-2013)

Quote:
Today we lost one of the great pencillers in comics history, indeed one of the most influential draftsman in the grand tradition of superhero art.

As reported by IGN, Carmine Infantino, the man who introduced one Flash to another and helped unveil DC Comics’ multiverse to countless awestruck readers, has died at the age of 87.

During his decades of artistry, he co-created such lasting characters as Animal Man, Barbara Gordon, Black Canary, Deadman and, most notably, Barry Allen. He’s also responsible for designing, perhaps, my own favorite DC characters in Flash rogues like Captain Cold, Mirror Master, Gorilla Grodd and more. And those are just the heroes and villains he helped devise. He also had storied runs on books like Detective Comics and contributed landmark cover and interior art to the full pantheon. He rendered gods, mortals and galaxies far, far away. As Editorial Director and then Publisher of DC Comics during the late 60s and 70s, he brought in new talent like Neal Adams, Denny O’Neil, and a guy from across the street named Jack Kirby.

Simply put, if you’ve ever enjoyed a DC comic, Mr. Infantino almost certainly had something to do with it, if not directly, than through his influence as a founding father and guiding spirit. He chronicled legends and in the process, became one.

Godspeed, Mr. Infantino.

another Great Page...Silver Surfer #1

Quote:
Over lunch together at the 1987 San Diego Comic Con, French comics artist Moebius and American comics icon Stan Lee decided to collaborate on a story together. Moebius’ grand art style lent itself to something huge and cosmic. A street level Spider-Man or Captain America tale simply wouldn’t do. The pair agreed on telling a Silver Surfer and Galactus tale, two characters that Stan Lee created alongside Jack Kirby back in 1966.

In a two issue miniseries titled Silver Surfer, Moebius and Lee presented a story that didn’t quite fit into the regular Marvel Universe. In it, Galactus arrives on Earth and sends the population into a frenzy. This story showcases Stan Lee’s themes of false prophets and people finding their own way in the universe. But truly, the star of the show here is Moebius’ amazing artwork. His drawings of Galactus show the being’s age and power. The amount of detail added to Galactus’ face is astounding and could be poured over by art fans for hours. His standing in a beam of light in the middle of a seemingly miniature city is compelling.

This miniseries won an Eisner Award for Best Finite Series in 1989 and this one page makes it pretty clear why. These are two comics masters working together to deliver a story worth remembering.

I was actually shocked...looked, saw it...then did kind of a WTF gesture...then went back to see if i was mistaken....nope
happens in both of the first 2 frames

It has caused a serious shitstorm at Apple and Comixology..i've tried to find a pic of the frames at google etc etc (so i could post here later for discussion) but every public site has pixled out the images

and btw, overall this issue was excellent...as per usual

and keeping with the Superman theme this morning...

another Great Page...Superman Confidential #2

Quote:
During one of Superman’s early adventures, he found himself in over his head. While attempting to stop a raging volcano from destroying a nearby village, Superman plunged deep into the steaming lava while he looked for a way to redirect the flow. When the pressure pushed the burning plasma deep into his lungs, the Man of Steel freaked out, afraid that his vaunted invulnerability didn’t extend to his insides. He did survive the experience but a scared and weakened Superman only knew one person to go to for comfort: His mother.
This page, written by Darwyn Cooke with art by Tim Sale, shows a diminished Man of Tomorrow turning to his mother for support. The vulnerability in his eyes in the middle of the page and his body language as he absentmindedly bunches up his cape shows a regression back to the Clark Kent of his youth. This man in Martha Kent’s kitchen is not the Man of Steel. He is just her little boy who was lost and scared.

sorry i didn't respond to this earlier
i've heard mixed reviews about this story...but i agree that picking up the TPB at a later date would be a good option


my Avengers collection is getting close to being complete...Scarlet Witch arrived yesterday and she's a beauty
a lot of people were complaining about her face but i've loved it right from day one...she has a certain "30s starlet" look to her...very unique
i hate the "A" base but i'll come up with a way to cover it up...all i need now is Vision...he's due to arrive next month

Happy 75th Birthday, ACTION COMICS #1

Quote:
On this date in 1938, National Allied Publications released an anthology not so unlike the other comics of its age. In it, a Texan named Thompson abandoned his destiny as an oil tycoon in favor of high adventure. Pep Morgan fought Sailor Sorenson for the Light Heavyweight Championship belt. A hooligan called Sticky-Mitt Stinson led police on a madcap chase, all for the want of an apple. In pursuit of the nefarious Tigress, the magician Zatara foiled a train robbery. Marco Polo, aged seventeen, set out with his father and uncle for the storied Orient. All told, 11 thrilling tales of romance and intrigue.

And from pages 1 to 13, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster introduced the world to the scion of Krypton, that mighty crusader of social justice in his dual role as reporter Clark Kent and the earthly titan known as Superman. And don’t forget Lois! She was there right from the start. Perry and Jimmy joined soon enough. Lex Luthor popped up two years later in 1940.

This little bundle of adventure was called Action Comics #1.







for those wondering why the issue says June ?...that was an indication for newsdealers as to when unsold copies of the publication were to be removed from the newsstands

Marvel Studios Confirms They Have The Film Rights To Daredevil

Quote:
Yesterday, while speaking to Newsarama at the Iron Man 3 press junket, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that the films rights to the character Daredevil have indeed reverted from Fox to Marvel Studios.

As was widely reported last year, 20th Century Fox had until October of 2012 to begin production on their next Daredevil film or they would lost the rights to the character (this is why there are so many sequels and reboots) and that didn’t happen. There was also talk of Marvel Studios making a deal with Fox to extend the latter’s option on Daredevil in exchange for giving Marvel the use of Galactus and the Silver Surfer (Fox also owns the movie rights to the Fantastic Four family of characters) but nothing came of that either. It was assumed by many that Marvel Studios gained back the rights to Daredevil but no official word was given… until now.

So now that Marvel Studios has the rights to Daredevil, the question is what to do with him? A solo film? A TV show? A supporting role in an Avengers film? A role in an ensemble piece featuring Marvel’s street-level characters?

There are three important things to know about Tony Twist:

1. He was a seriously scary fighter.

2. He had a fantastic name.

3. That name was very similar to a character from the Spawn of comic books, which turned out to be kind of a problem.

As it turns out, in addition to KO’ing players on the ice, Tony Twist could hold his own in the courtroom, too. He sued Spawn creator (and former Edmonton Oilers co-owner) Todd McFarlane for millions over a character named “Antonio Twistelli.” The case dragged on for years, at one point pushing McFarlane’s company toward bankruptcy, before the parties finally settled for a reported $5 million.
