supergirl 900

In celebration of Halloween and CBS’s Supergirl, I drew Kara with some holiday flair!

The pilot was a little rough (what pilot isn’t), but I’m sure we’ll be on track for another great superhero tv show.

Hey everybody! Here’s a quick videoblog summarizing my continuous journey to catching up on the best DC Comics has to offer!

alfred injustice

There are many instances of where video game universes are continued as comic books.  I’ve heard only good things from things like The Last of Us’s “American Dreams” and there are plenty of Halo, Assassin’s Creed, and Mass Effect ones that I know people enjoy.  Today I’m giving a special shout out to Injustice: Gods Among Us.  Here’s a comic book that’s based on a fighting video game that’s based on comic book characters who often fight each other.  How weird was that?

This article isn’t as much about the video game itself (which is free for Playstation Plus members this December), but rather a comic book that acts as the prequel to the events of one of the game’s timelines.  DC and comic books in general often operate in alternate realities and the basis of this comic book follows Superman’s descent into becoming the world’s dictator.  The DC universe prides Superman as being incorruptible.  But what happens when the Joker tricks him into murdering his own pregnant wife?

This is how the comic book starts out.  The initial story is lightly treaded on in the video game itself, but the game jumps ahead FIVE years after this event.  In the game all we learn is that Superman has established a dictatorship of the world under the guise of maintaining peace.  There is an underground war against Batman and his thin alliance of other insurgents.  But how did this happen?  How did the heroes line up on each side?  What happened to certain heroes and villains?  The comic book promises to cover all of these and more, making an entertaining and shockingly dark romp.

I’ve picked up only Year 1: Vol. 1 of Injustice.  I’m very excited to read Vol. 2 this January.  Here’s a review.

The Gang by Chubeto

The Gang by Chubeto

It’s no surprise that I’m a huge DC fanatic, and I enjoy soaking up just about any and all things DC related, whether they be their comics, video games, movies, and television shows.  I have dedicated today’s post to their much beloved animated series that they’ve been pumping out since 1992 (maybe even earlier, I’m note entirely sure).  They continue to produce quality television shows and animated movies to this day, although some for the wrong [but necessary] reasons.  My recent finishing of the television series Young Justice has prompted me to write this post and kind of cover all the great things about DC’s [or I guess Warner Bros.] animated divisions.  It’s very clear that a lot of these great shows and movies were created by comic book lovers who enjoy introducing legendary and fantastic characters in the DC universe as well as dropping hints, easter eggs, and callbacks to those who are engaged and already familiar with the DC Universe.

Here’s a breakdown of some of the recent and personally significant series and movies I’ve had the pleasure of viewing.

wonder woman 1280

I got a pang to draw more DC heroes after my Zatanna drawing and I decided to redraw Wonder Woman after my derpy interpretation in the past.  I admit, this is still a little derpy, but I’m definitely trying to a weird medium between pure cartoon and semi-realism.  Anyways, it came out kind of okay, and I’m getting more and more surprised with how quickly I finish these with this particular piece being clocked in at about a little over 2 hours.  Does that mean if I focus more time I can get more quality results?  I dunno.  I’ve never had a project that has taken over 5 or 6 hours max on my Cintiq, maybe it’s time I try.

Anyways, let me know if you guys have any comments or questions.

I have Black Carnival stuff also, but I’m just waiting for the opportune time to share it.

Also, here is a speed art video below.

Boy has it been an incredible past couple of weeks for DC Comics in the mainstream.  Of course, there are always news when it comes to what’s new in the comic book world, but for everyone else, television and movies are often the only outlets to some of the comic book properties.  2014-2015 television shows are being picked up and their initial trailers are being released and movie news for 2016 and beyond.  Among these, it appeared that NBC, CW, Fox, and Warner Bros got together and said, “the month of May is when we’re gonna release all the awesome DC-related news”.  Of course they didn’t actually do that, but damn it, it sure looked that way.  In today’s post, we’re gonna take a look at all the related news that was released that are DC Comics related.

ww 800

 

Here’s a quick one-day sketch of Diana Prince who is also known as Wonder Woman. I’m a bit on a DC bend right now.  Expect more DC heroes, particularly the Bat family.  I got Batgirl in the works.  Might go towards the 3 remaining Robins I haven’t done.  Might go towards some villains.  And of course the B-man himself.  Any who, I’m still trying to find my ‘style’ so to speak, so expect some variations.

As for Black Carnival stuff, I’m not entirely sure where I want to go with it.  With summer here, I have the time to return to a strip a week, but I’ve considered heavy rewrites and of course more concept art changes.  When I have something more solid, I’ll update everyone.

dark knight returns 1

Did you ever want to know what would happen to Batman when he would inevitably become aged?  In Frank Miller’s non-canonical but still incredibly relevant, “The Dark Knight Returns”,  follows Batman in his golden years, 10 years after retirement.  As Gotham is still in the dark shadows, a new generation of criminals who do not know fear try to take over Gotham.  Only so long can the Dark Knight sit idly as he watches the city he gave half of his life to burns.  But he isn’t the only one watching Gotham…When he inevitably comes back, an old foe’s spark is reignited to return as well.

Spoilers beware

Cracked has come up with another list of awesome points.  This time around, it’s common comic cliches that occur on all comic covers.  It has something to do with how the artists like portraying heroes.  And apparently there’s a rule book for thing like, holding someone dead in your arms and screaming at the sky, or trying to fit in as many guns as possible.  Or it’s pure coincidence that most comic books do this.  It’s very much like the 3 Point Landing  I posted about earlier.

W. Rowntree and Cracked.com has once again come up with this amazing webcomic about the absurdity behind superhero reboots.  I love the justification descriptions behind each one and they truly represent how ridiculous reboots and revamps are becoming.  That being said, the new Spiderman is completely unnecessary and the only reason I might see it is because Emma Stone is A-Mah-Zing.
