Scott Summers has not been in Marvel’s new X-Men books. Okay, well, his time-displaced teen self has, but that’s a long story for another time. But while Cyclops has been absent, he’s had a very strong presence in the X-Men’s current adventure—for very bad reasons. And his latest moment is no exception.
Coming-of-age drama Essex County, adapted from Jeff Lemire’s series of short stories set in his hometown of Detroit-adjacent Essex County, Ontario, Canada, will be developed for Canada’s CBC network.
The X-Men are having a rough time in Marvel’s “All-New, All-Different” universe. Usually, that’d just be like another Tuesday for them, but this time there are a lot of questions up in the air: Why is Terrigen Mist killing them? What the hell did Cyclops do to make mutants hated again? Well, we might just have some…
Extraordinary X-Men, the new banner X-Men series in Marvel’s “All-New, All-Different” reboot, sees the X-Men facing some cataclysmic threats to mutant kind—and a potential new enemy in the Inhumans. But they’ll be getting some help: from a long dead X-Men... and maybe not the one you’re expecting.
We keep on hearing of film studios planning movies for unreleased movies, and now the trend's extending to the deserving world of comics. Sony came out on top of a bidding war for the rights to Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen's Descender.
While everyone is still freaking out about Ben Affleck's Batman, it seems like DC thought it would be time to announce some other news that may not be so popular: Specifically, that the Justice League of America is heading north and that Lobo will now apparently be played by Twilight's Robert Pattinson.
What is the terrifying truth behind this week’s comic releases? I don’t have the faintest clue. I do, however, know that The X-Files is finally back thanks to IDW, continuing right where it left off. Plus a new Marvel event begins, a beloved Vertigo tale ends, and BKV's Saga continues, all in this week’s comics!
Courtesy of DC Comics, here's a first look at this Wednesday's issue of Animal Man, which sees Buddy Baker stuck in a hellish nightmare future known as "The Rotworld" alongside mutated corpse versions of Deathstroke the Terminator and Grifter. Here's the rundown:
Here's an exclusive first look at the next issue of Justice League Dark, which sees supernatural stalwarts John Constantine, Deadman, Zatanna, and Black Orchid engaging in mystical fisticuffs with magical nasties. This issue hits stores next Wednesday, October 24. Here's the rundown:
And he's in a downright terrible mood. For the final issue of the military comic Men of War, DC Comics has tapped both present and future Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. writers Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt for the story of a one "Project Green Man." Courtesy of DC, here's an exclusive sneak peek at the craziness.
A lot of nifty stuff is hitting the stores tomorrow, but let's just pause for a moment and reflect on the innate weirdness of Alex "Epic Realism" Ross painting Voltron. Goodness, that's bizarre. Not as weird as his League of Extraordinary Gentlemen/30 Rock mash-up, but still plum hilarious. On to the comics!
For the past two years, one of the most consistently readable comics on the stands has been writer/illustrator Jeff Lemire's end-of-the-world fable Sweet Tooth. Lemire — whose work you may know from books like The Nobody and Animal Man — tells the tale of Gus, an antlered boy born after a mysterious disease wipes out…
We've been immensely fond of Jeff Lemire and Travel Foreman's relaunch of the famously trippy comic book Animal Man. Now, courtesy of DC Comics, here's an exclusive sneak peek at next Wednesday's issue.
One of our favorite comics to come out of DC's New 52 relaunch was Jeff Lemire and Alberto Ponticelli's Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E., a gleefully deranged horror/science fiction/espionage hybrid starring a poetic patchwork monster and his crack squad of paramilitary monsters. Here's an exclusive preview of the…
At New York Comic Con, io9 caught up with writer Jeff Lemire, current writer of DC Comics' New 52 titles Animal Man and Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E.
We're into the second week of the DC relaunch! In these offerings, the DC Universe's supporting cast won the day.
Last Wednesday, DC's fired off its first salvo of relaunched first issues. Of the thirteen rebooted books, some worked, a bunch didn't, and one debut absolutely knocked it out of the park. That comic was Jeff Lemire's and Travel Foreman's superhero-horror yarn Animal Man.
Jeff Lemire is the creator of the acclaimed Vertigo series Sweet Tooth, which follows Gus, a nine-year-old, half-deer boy growing up in a post-apocalyptic America ravaged by a mysterious plague. We spoke to Lemire about building this zoologically screwball world.
There's a lot of interesting reads in your comic shop this week, such as reprints of classic Planetary crossovers, the return of Odin in Matt Fraction's Thor, the 100th issue of Fables, and much more!
For this Thursday's comics, Marvel brings back a ton of high-profile heroes who've been on sabbatical. How high-profile? We're talking Steve Rogers, the Young Avengers, Matt Fraction's suave bastard spy Casanova Quinn, and Mick Anglo's lawsuit-prone Marvelman. That's a line-up.
