News of the Sandman movie — which Joseph Gordon-Levitt is producing, possibly directing — are slowly trickling in. The most exciting rumor to hit the internet sphere was that Tom Hiddleston may be interested in playing the well-known main character, Dream. FINGERS CROSSED SO HARD! In honor of our hopes and dreams for Hiddleston, JGL and Sandman… I present to you these fanart scoured from the Land of Deviantart.
I know most of you (half of you? Many of you?) are even more excited now about the Deadpool movie after the first red band trailer was released this week. In honor of our favorite mercenary with a mouth, this week’s Fanart Glee is all about Deadpool. I think we can all agree that he is possibly one of the most beloved comic book character. You can’t go to a comic convention without spotting a herd of Deadpool cosplayers… and if you don’t like him, you more than likely do not have a sense of humor. Just saying.
Seriously, guys. Why won’t you just let him love you?
The Comic Bug stepped it up several notches during this year’s Free Comic Book Day — for the first time, our favorite comic book store hosted Free Comic-Con Day! The event was held at the Culver City Teen Center and housed a large artist alley inside the building, which overflowed into the parking lot. That’s where we set up shop along with our fellow creators and geeks.
Want to see what the event looked like? Watch our video and check out more photos after the jump!
In this episode, the Lady Geeks talk more about Kingsman (let’s appreciate British men in suit) and gave Jimmy Olsen his new origin story (let’s appreciate the casting choice in Supergirl). Fanfic Theatre: The Hobbit.
In 2015, Archie will be “rebooted” with Mark Weid and one of my favorite artist, Fiona Staples to celebrate its 75th anniversary. When I came across this on my newsfeed on Twitter, my brain pretty much imploded. I grew up on Archie comics. For awhile, I really latched onto the world, going back and forth between Team Betty and Team Veronica and then deciding that everyone sucks except for Jughead. I must have absorbed plenty of life lessons from reading millions of Archie books.
So yes, I’m a bit excited to see the new look for the comic book and for this relaunch!
Gizzy B and the Space Pirate Queen sit down after Comikaze Expo 2014 and have a little con talk, parking woes, hyperventilating over Kevin Conroy which of course, falls into a Batman-loving discussion.
This year we were lucky enough to conduct a video interview with Dennis Calero and Todd Stashwick, the creative team responsible for the awesome web comic/graphic novel The Devil Inside. The bad news is that our audio committed suicide half way through the video interview. OH NOEZ!
Yes, we are very professional and you should let us interview you.
Luckily my brain is ever so slightly larger than the size of a walnut, so I remember a lot of what they said during the interview that you may not be able to make out from the audio.
Here is some supplemental content to the video interview (Author’s Note: This is a summary and is not word for word what Dennis and Todd said):
How have the characters evolved over time?
He started off as a man with an idea of who he wants to be, and over time he has grown more of a conscience. Also he is not what you typically picture when you think of “the Devil”. He does not have a red cape with a pitchfork and it is not necessarily his intention to bring the evil out of others, despite the fact that it happens. In this story it is more humanity that causes the problems than the Devil, so it’s the evil of others that surrounds him more than the evil of being the Devil. In fact, its also a Pinnocchio story. He over time wants to become a “real boy”, or in this case more like a human being. On the back of the book it even says, “Evil is not a force, it is a choice.” He, the Devil, wants and has that choice to not be evil anymore.
