Holy Bat sneakers!

-----------------------

Why did DC Comics announce the postponement/cancellation of those Showcase Presents books the other day? The answer may boil down to dollars and cents, speculates Yet Another Comics Blog.

[The cancelled books] all come from a period (the late 70s through the mid-90s) when for various reasons the reprint rights aren't clear cut. My understanding is that because of the work-for-hire contracts in use at DC at the time the reprint rights must be renegotiated or else the costs of reprinting are so high as to make them unprofitable. This is why we see so few DC comics from that time frame collected; it's doable, just time consuming; and unless DC has a current good relationship with the creators it can get sticky.

--------------------------

Two feature-length DVDs focusing on The Who will be out Nov. 6.

"Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who,"...chronicles the history of the band through fresh interviews with surviving band members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, rare concert footage, artist profiles and more.

The companion film, "Amazing Journey: Six Quick Ones" features four segments on the musical abilities of band members Townshend, Daltrey, bass player John Entwistle and drummer Keith Moon. A fifth part, "Who Art You," explores the Mod culture that spawned the band's visuals, while segment six, "Who's Back," chronicles the 2003 recording of "Real Good Looking Boy," the Who's first new studio recording in more than 20 years.

Pogo Artifact!



Pop Culture Roundup Aug. 30, 2007

Hilly Kristal, founder of New York City's famed CBGBs club has died.

Kristal founded the club in 1973 to showcase bluegrass and country acts, but it quickly became known as a breeding ground for experimental and punk music. Throughout the 1970s and '80s, the club served as a launching pad for Blondie, the Talking Heads, Television, Living Colour, Patti Smith and the Ramones, among many others.

Fred Hembeck has posted, and is selling, some great new Marvel Comics-based art.

The BBC has unearthed previously unseen Bob Dylan footage for a new 80-minute documentary.

"The Other Side of the Mirror — Dylan at Newport" is due to air on BBC 4 Oct. 14 — and will form the lynchpin of a themed night dedicated to Dylan and the Newport Folk Festival produced by award-winning arts documentary strand "Arena."

"Almost half of these Dylan performances have never been seen before," said "Arena" editor Anthony Wall.

He added: "It is fabulous, vintage Dylan collated from three Newports – '63, '64 and '65."

Pogo Artifact!



Pop Culture Roundup Aug. 28, 2007

Better late than never: Here are the November 2007 solicitations for DC Comics and Marvel Comics.

------------------

iTunes is offering an exclusive Paul McCartney EP: Paul McCartney Live from the iTunes Festival. Tracks include: "Coming Up," "Only Mama Knows," "That Was Me," "Jet," Nod Your Head" and "House of Wax." You can get the works for $5.49.

-------------------

Today would've been Jack Kirby's 90th birthday. All hail the King!



-------------------

New seasons for "The Batman" and "Legion of Super-heroes" begin Sept. 22 on Kids WB. Details:

The Batman
Four-time Emmy Award winner "The Batman" will focus its new season on the introduction of Batman's Justice League peers.

Expect amped-up action and heightened stakes as Superman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Green Arrow, Martian Manhunter and several others work in concert with Batman -- and even more of his amazing technological wonders -- to defend Gotham from a seemingly never-ending roster of super villains.

The usual suspects return with nefarious new schemes and more sophisticated gadgetry as the Joker, Penguin, Harley Quinn and Mr. Freeze are joined in their quest to rid Gotham of any nocturnal winged creatures by the likes of Sinestro, Scarface, Mirror Master, Metallo, Clayface and even Lex Luthor, who enlists Poison Ivy and her enchanting spores to turn Superman against Batman in the two-part season premiere.

Legion of Superheroes
The second season of "Legion of Super Heroes" finds the group fulfilling their collective destiny, each member elevating his skills to new levels ... just in time to face even greater challenges.

A incomprehensibly undefeatable nemesis -- Imperiex, the destroyer of galaxies from the rich annals of DC Comics -- puts the Legion into action alongside new team members. Superman returns from the 21st century with greater development of both his physical prowess and far better utilization of his powers to help the Legion toward victory in the 31st century and beyond.

Moreover, the Legion finds a surprising, new ally from across the space-time continuum -- a 41st century Superman, cloned from the original Superman with alien DNA added to the mix for new, enhanced powers -- to assist in its efforts to rid the universe of this powerful foe. Along the way, the LOSH -- including new members like Chameleon Boy -- provides the perfect complement of heroics and comedy to the efforts of the Supermans.

------------------

Heaven preserve us: Keanu Reeves is set to star in a remake of "The Day the Earth Stood Still." Maybe he's playing the robot...

-------------------

Darwyn Cooke provides the cover for the next issue of The Comics Journal.

-----------------------

It's a funny thing about comics artist Don Heck. As this bulleting board posting demonstrates, some people who profess to hate his work later come to love it. I count myself among those who have reevaluated his output. My first exposure to his stuff came in the 70s and 80s when, admittedly, he wasn't doing his best work. But in his prime, and especially when he was inking his own pencils, he was pretty great.

------------------------

I also hate to admit, at one time I wasn't a fan of comic artist Jack Kirby's work. It just seemed weird and big and blocky. I was stupid. I now count him as my all-time favorite comics artist and an American genius. The New York Times agrees.

-------------------------

Virgin Comics plans a new Dan Dare comics series. From the press release:

The new series will be published monthly beginning November 2007 and will be written by legendary comic author, Garth Ennis (author of Preacher, The Boys, Hitman, John Woo's Seven Brothers and other acclaimed and best-selling titles).

Dan Dare has been an icon since 1950. Elaborate stories of his space travel and galactic battles defending people of the universe captivated post- War baby boomers. Dan Dare's adventures burst to the forefront of pop culture, selling nearly 1 million copies each week in the pages of the Eagle Comic.

Virgin Comics' Dan Dare is set in the future, albeit not too many decades from the present day. Colonel Dare is still vibrant and courageous -- but now he's retired. His retirement is a self-imposed exile, the result of his disgust with politics and the post-nuclear warfare that has destroyed North America and much of Asia -- leaving the UK as the world's last remaining superpower. Readers familiar with Dan Dare stories will recognize many of the original cast including a wiser and more experienced Digby; the innovative, brilliant and beautiful Professor Peabody; and of course the enemy of all that is good, the super-intelligent ruler of the Treens -- The Mekon, together with a mix of galactic evil beings.

Well tickle my webs and call it time for another offering of the greatest, friendliest, webslingingest super hero of all—the Amazing Spider-Man! The adventures Stan “The Man” and the Jazzy One, John Romita, have in store for you in this ten-spot of tales are enough to make even ol’ J. Jonah Jameson fall in love with Spidey. Well, maybe not, but that means you’ve no competition for a date with the likes of the Prowler in his first appearance; the beautiful Black Widow seen for the first time in her sultry new spy gear; an underworld family in-fight between the Kingpin and the Schemer including Vanessa Fisk’s entrée into Marveldom; and the Chameleon, Electro and the Kangaroo, a poor assemblage that’s always a bridesmaid and never a bride.
It’s not just the most colorful array of villains in comics, of course! There’s melodrama aplenty in the fashion that could only befit poor Peter Parker. See how Mr. Luckless himself handles not only the loss of his powers and glowing Gwen’s fear of Spidey, but how he wiggles his way out of revealing his identity right before Gwen, MJ, and the gang’s very eyes! We’ll be waiting, so don’t forget that corsage, most Fearless Front Facer!

Here it is, True Believers! You knew we'd do it sooner or later! From the Venerable Vaults of Marveldom, it's the Mighty Marvel Handbook -- in the style of the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s! Just what is a Legacy Handbook, you ask? Imagine a Handbook written during each of those decades. The profiles within each chapter cover everything published by the hallowed House of Ideas up until that point. So if it's from a comic that has a December 1969 cover date or earlier, you'll find it in the magnificent 1960s chapter! Featuring Spider-Man, the Hulk, the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men and more across the ages -- as well as hundreds of other era-specific entries! Collecting MARVEL LEGACY: 1960s HANDBOOK, MARVEL LEGACY: 1970s HANDBOOK, MARVEL LEGACY: 1980s HANDBOOK and MARVEL LEGACY: 1990s HANDBOOK.
