Savage Dragon #223 April Fool’s Cover from Image Comics

I’m really digging these April Fool’s covers from the Image Comics gang. I grabbed the UNCANNY AVENGERS-inspired BLACK SCIENCE one last week. Unfortunately, I passed on the “Gwinvincible” INVINCIBLE one last week, (though I got a picture of it). Tomorrow I will snag up this “SNYDER – JOCK SAVAGE DRAGON” one for its sheer coolness. ( W ) Erik…

Action packed, fast-paced storytelling with good and very energetic art. I think in this case it really helps that the creator/writer/aritst Daniel Warren Johnson is drawing the story himself. With Extremity it looks…

Asians ARE NOT ‘Oriental’, Co-Creator of Iron Fist! | Legion of Leia

Asians ARE NOT ‘Oriental’, Co-Creator of Iron Fist! Earlier this week, I argued how casting an Asian-American as Danny Rand might have benefitted Marvel/Netflix’s adaptation of Iron Fist. It seems Co-Creator of Iron Fist, Roy Thomas had a few words of his own as well. And they were…. Well, let’s just say that my blood…

Role Casting in the Modern Era

As comic book fans — and by natural extension, comic book movie fans — we tend to get a bit passionate about prospective and rumored casting of roles as well as the actual official casting.
