The most recent happened this past August. I always fail, and everyone involved should take that as a compliment. By all accounts, the process behind the scenes was dull in a good way.
Be cool: Behind every story and profile there's a real person. In a nutshell, it's okay to not like things or some peoplebut don't be a dick about it. Do have fun, share stories, and participate.
From the origins of Jessica Jones to some of the the most iconic Punisher stories of the millennium, Marvel MAX is an intriguing look at the Marvel Universe without the censors turned on. The Complete Marvel Reading Order. Comic Book Herald is reader-supported.
C omic book publishers, both independent and internationally famous, have made huge strides in their depictions of gender. When Marvel and DC began experimenting with gender-flipped heroes several years ago, it was obvious that the market demanded a feminine presence ; Jane Seymour as Thor sold out her male counterpart in mere days, and the all-female Avengers team A-Force still flies off the shelves. Now that the comic book pantheon is filled with female and male characters, it stands to reason that some of them may want to have sex.
Back by popular demand, Comic Book Daily asks the question and the crew and special guests give their answers. Mainstream comics should have general appeal. BUT just like we have r-rated movies and HBO and Showtime making shows with adult content, I have no issues whatsoever with graphic novels and comics that address adult only in the sense that only adults can buy and read subjects so long as they are properly marked as such.
The Dark Age of Comic Books was the culmination of a gradual move towards an older audience for Comic Booksparticularly those featuring superheroes that had started in The Bronze Age of Comic Books. Usually characterized as a Darker and Edgier period featuring an increased focus on sex, violence and dark, gritty portrayals of the characters involved, much of the content produced during this era is very controversial among comic book fans and is depending on whom you ask regarded as either a welcome breath of fresh air after the medium languished for so long in its own version of the Animation Age Ghettoor a period of grotesque excess and immaturity While works both by these authors and others in the field had also displayed Dark Age sensibilities prior to these such as Moore's V for Vendetta and Miracleman bothand Miller's RoninWatchmen and The Dark Knight Returns were the two works which provided much of the direct inspiration for what followed.
You will be glad to know I am still burrowing through dollar bins on the occasional lunch break; there is a lot that remains buried, not just from the uncertain comic shop pre-dawn of the '70 or the days of excess of the 90s, but from the nascent 'alternative comics' era of the early '80s, when certain genre specialists -- emboldened by the technologies and freedoms of the day -- set out on odd and doomed affairs. Fitting both qualities quite nicely was Bruce Jones' Pathways to Fantasywhich sounds like couples' porn, but was actually a one-off comic book released by Pacific Comics in Jones had written extensively for the Warren horror magazines in the decade prior, but as the Direct Market dawned he and his partner, April Campbell, reestablished themselves as packagers of new comic book material, eventually filling two genre-defined anthologies -- Twisted Tales horror and Alien Worlds SF -- both of which moved on to Eclipse after Pacific sputtered to a halt.
One of the most persistent criticisms leveled at Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was that it was overly dark in its tone. But as longterm readers know, that tone is perfectly in line with much of what DC has published over the years: beneath the veneer of bright capes and costumes lies a world of rape, murder, and multiple instances of sex that can only be described as "illegal and dangerous. If you'd like to pretend that the Joker is here to tell Barbara Gordon about a timeshare opportunity, this would be a good time to turn back….
How about this concept for a new movie: A highly ambitious young man kills his father. Then he marries his mother. They have several children together.
