Count Vertigo’s debut in GREEN ARROW #22 will turn Oliver Queen’s world upside down once more. After Ollie takes something precious away from Count Vertigo, this new adversary will stop at nothing to track him down to get revenge and take back what he feels his rightfully his. And you especially won’t want to miss the showdown between these two, as its grave consequences will have very substantial and lasting effects on Ollie going forward. Below, check out series artist Andrea Sorrentino’s awesome design for Count Vertigo, and notice the device mounted to his head that holds his power! (Yikes!)
Green Arrow #22 is out June 3rd.
Entertainment Weekly have revealed how Neil Gaiman and Todd McFarlane’s Angela will look when the character makes her debut in the final issue of Age of Ultron:
Angela first appeared in 1993 in the pages of Todd MacFarlane’s Spawn where she was introduced by writer Neil Gaiman and artist Todd MacFarlane, two of the biggest names to emerge from the comics scene of the past three decades. The two creators were also the top names printed on a mountain of legal documents during their decade-long legal battle for control of Angela. That was resolved in early 2012 and Angela now gets her wings, so to speak, in a Marvel issue co-written by Gaiman and Brain Bendis.
Her background: She was a foe and then romantic interest to Spawn and a flip image of him in many ways – he represents a conflicted antihero fashioned by the fires of hell and while she is a strident soul and ferocious warrior that won’t be mistaken for a cherub anytime soon. Interestingly, the biggest change to the character visually would be the tweaking of the wings on her headgear, which were perhaps a bit too close to the feathered fashion of Thor’s crown.
Drawn here by Joe Quesada,it’;s unclear yet just how the character will fit into the already crowded Marvel U,but you can be sure there will be quite a rush to find out on June 10th when Age of Ultron #10 hits the stands.
I am also a little heart broken to see the book go.
I’m not going to complain, I got to draw really cool Characters and really cool settings. I got to work with a really great team, Jason Latour, the jive talkin southern redneck genius who besides being a great scribe is also fantastic artist as many of you know. It was pleasure to work with him and we had a great time talking shop on a few occasions. Our editorial team consisting first and foremost of Lauren Sankovitch, and Jacob Thomas who held the reins steady and left us enough free room to unfold our craziness. Declan Shalvey & Jordie Bellaire who provided gorgeous covers.
A shame,but we still have two issues to go before we say farewell to Bucky and his missions,the final one,#19 will be out in June,the variant cover featured here is by Jason Latour.
After withdrawing from the whole Orson Scott Card DC fiasco it now seems we will be getting some Chris Sprouse goodness this year and it’s with a character he co-created,Tom Strong.
In July,Chris and Peter Hogan will bring us a new chapter in the life of Millenium City’s science hero called Tom Strong and the Planet of Peril.Shown here is the first cover and some preview pencils which Chris shared on his site last summer,so it seems this project has been in limbo for some time!
Joining Chris and Peter on the Vertigo published book will be Jordie Bellaire on colours.You can catch the title in stores from July 31st.
It’s the return of Tom Strong—too bad he’s powerless! The lives of his daughter Tesla and her unborn child both hang in the balance, and there’s nothing Tom can do to save them…until he remembers the one thing that just might. To find it, he and Val Var Garm must journey to the far side of the galaxy, and the mysterious world known as…TERRA OBSCURA!
When I first heard this I assumed it was some kind of April Fools joke but no,it’s real.
DC teased half the cover for Batman & Robin #19 or Red Robin as it’s called for this issue ,and as you can see,just a small part of the sidekick’s cloak was visible,leading some comic fans to speculate that it may signal the return of Tim Drake to the role of crime fighting partner.
Hopes were dashed however when the New York Post revealed it will actually be Carrie Kelley of Dark Knight fame who will at least temporarily be filling the Boy Wonder’s shoes.
A bold move by DC certainly,we can see if it is one which will pay off on April 10th.
The company insist the hero’s back-story will not be revised in anyway,merely “built-upon”:“It’s not ‘let’s redo the origin.’ It’s time for a new story showing how Batman became who he is in the New 52,” series writer Scott Snyder explained to THE ASSOCIATED PRESS. “We tried to preserve as much of Batman’s history as we could and keep what we could of this history intact. It’s ‘The Zero Year,’ the one that no one has told the story of before. We see how Bruce became the Batman, built the cave, faced off with his first super villain … It’s time for a new story showing how Batman became who he is in The New 52. It builds up the mythology.”
