The CW’s Heroes and Villains Unite for a Five-Part Flash Premiere

First Comics News - Fri, 08/27/2021 - 21:48

Eight seasons in and The Flash still knows how to surprise.

While Grant Gustin’s speedy superhero only wrapped up his seventh season a month ago, we’re not too far from the launch of his eighth, which The CW announced today will kick off with a five-part epic event that will bring more than a half-dozen heroes and villains from throughout the Arrowverse to Central City for a massive storyline called “Armageddon.”

According to the event’s logline, a powerful alien threat arrives on Earth under mysterious circumstances and Barry (Grant Gustin), Iris (Candice Patton) and the rest of Team Flash are pushed to their limits in a desperate battle to save the world. But with time running out, and the fate of humanity at stake, Flash and his companions will also need to enlist the help of some old friends if the forces of good are to prevail.

Those allies come from The CW’s other DC shows and include more than a few surprises—Javicia Leslie as Batwoman, Brandon Routh as the Atom, Cress Williams as Black Lightning, Chyler Leigh as Sentinel, Kat McNamara as Mia Queen and Osric Chau as Ryan Choi. In addition, Tom Cavanagh and Neal McDonough will return as two of the small screen’s biggest bads, the Reverse-Flash and Damien Darhk.

While The CW’s Chairman and CEO Mark Pedowitz has said that “Armageddon” isn’t technically a crossover event—it’ll be limited to The Flash, after all—it’s clear that it’s much bigger than your standard season premiere.

“Simply put, these are going to be some of the most emotional Flash episodes ever,” shared Flash Executive Producer Eric Wallace. “Plus, there are some truly epic moments and huge surprises that await our fans. And we’re doing them on a scale that’s bigger and bolder than our traditional Flash episodes. So yes, ‘Armageddon’ is a lot more than just another graphic novel storyline. It’s going to be a true event for Flash and Arrowverse fans, old and new. Honestly, I can’t wait for audiences to see what we’ve got planned.”

The Flash wrapped up its most recent season with another large-scale event, albeit a bit smaller in scale than “Armageddon.” The two-part season finale, “Heart of the Matter” (above), introduced Jordan Fisher as Bart Allen and brought back the villain Godspeed, as well as John Wesley Shipp’s Jay Garrick, Cavanagh’s Reverse-Flash, Carlos Valdes’ Vibe and Jessica Parker Kennedy’s XS. However, big as the finale was it ended rather definitively suggesting that fans are unlikely to find any narrative threads that set up “Armageddon” there. (Not that you shouldn’t go and rewatch “Heart of the Matter,” anyhow. You totally should.)

The Flash’s eighth season, along with the five-part “Armageddon,” kicks off on Tuesday, November 16th at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. CST).

Into the Wilderness

Sorcerer's Skull - Fri, 08/27/2021 - 12:05

I have the rudiments of an idea for a setting. A wilderness not unlike Middle-earth's Wilderlands, but also not unlike America's early frontier between the Appalachians and the Mississippi River--and at a 1820s level of technology. A place of dark forests, mighty rivers, skin-changers, and dragons, but also rivermen in keelboats, ancient mounds, and perhaps the skeletons of ancient giants
Not really the American Frontier any more than Middle-earth is Europe (and no need to tell me Tolkien intended it to be Eurasia in the distant past, please). No colonialism as we know it, though likely some clash of cultures and plenty of room for man's inhumanity to man, of course. Probably no demi-humans as usually constituted but maybe something with more Biblical resonance. After all, the Garden of Eden could be in Missouri.

The Definitive Edition of Brian Heiler’s Rack Toys Returns

First Comics News - Thu, 08/26/2021 - 15:49

Press Release:

LOS ANGELES, CA — The Nacelle Company, the people behind Netflix’s The Movies That Made Us, The Toys That Made Us, Down To Earth with Zac Efron and Behind The Attraction for Disney+ have announced they’re publishing the definitive edition of Brian Heiler’s Rack Toys, and will release it through their new publishing department on September 10, 2021.

Rack Toys

Brian Heiler’s 2012 book, Rack Toys is a love-letter to the fun toys that broke really easy. Chronicling decades of cheaply made toys found on the rack of discount stores, drug stores, and anywhere in-between, what these toys lacked in quality, they made up for in charm and kitsch. A beautiful and comprehensive (and updated!) account of all these weird and wonderful toys and where they came from, with new afterward by Brian Volk-Weiss.

If you’re asking yourself “What are rack toys?”, we’re glad you asked! They’re colorfully packaged toys hanging from your pharmacists’ or grocer’s shelves, designed to entice you while you sit in your parent’s shopping cart. Often terribly made, these strange playthings were low priced enough to wear down even the most frugal adult and were most likely forgotten or broken by the time you left the parking lot. Rack Toys is a lesson that re-purposed illogically licensed toys were not always meant to be remembered.

This new definitive edition of the popular collector’s book includes expanded chapters and even deeper dives into the world of Comic Action Heroes, TV & Movie Superstars, Saturday Morning, Spooky Fun Page, World Famous Super Monsters, Mighty Crusaders, Sonic Woman, Space Master and much more. Even the nostalgic Santa Putty makes an appearance! Fans can enjoy over 30% new information and material in this Nacelle Company-approved definitive edition of Brian Heiler’s Rack Toys.

As a freelance pop culture writer and photographer, Brian Heiler and his work have been featured in Toy Shop, Lee’s Action Figure News, Toyfare Magazine, Famous Monsters of Filmland, and Model & Collector Mart. His website, PlaidStallions is a repository for his childhood obsessions including toys, 70s clothing, superheroes making mall appearances, and pictures of long-defunct toy retailers. Brian is a brand manager for a publisher, who resides outside of Toronto with two wonderful children, an all too understanding wife, and more stuff than he probably should have.

“I am very grateful and excited that Nacelle reached out to me about producing this new edition of Rack Toys. The book was a love letter to my childhood and to find that it resonated with the folks at such an awesome company was especially validating,” said Brian Heiler.

“I’ve been buying Rack Toys at Becket General Store since I was 5 years old, and to be able to publish a book about one of my favorite pastimes feels almost too good to be true,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, Founder and CEO of The Nacelle Company.

Super Sugar and Boy Coffee: Issues #1 & 2

First Comics News - Thu, 08/26/2021 - 15:16

Super Sugar and boy coffee 2-Issue COLORED Compilation

Super Sugar and boy coffee is a story about two superheroes that live and fight crime in Cubica City, a bustling metropolis replete with characters that are living, breathing brand-name mascot characters (sort-of), just living their lives as best as they can.  But, just like with any other city, there is crime and criminality, evil and evil-doers!

That’s where our intrepid heroes come in!

Super Sugar and boy coffee take the mantle of ‘Cubica’s Protectors’ upon themselves right from the get-go, thwarting crime, busting knuckles, and capturing ne’er do wells, all in the name of justice, peace, and a darn good cup of coffee to boot!

Join Super Sugar and his trusty sidekick boy coffee and their many hilarity-filled adventures thwarting evil-doers and ne’er-do-wells in the bustling metropolis of Cubica City!

In this 2-issue compilation, chock-full of nutritious story and energized characters, our illustrious heroes mangle with rampaging, robotic ruffians created by the Legume of Larceny himself, Doctor Beans, and his wacky totally naive hench-nut, the Tree Nut of Terror, Nuts!

Will Super Sugar and boy coffee be up to the task of recycling these metal meanies or will there be a LOT of collateral damage, and perhaps a lesson to be learned?

The 2-issue paperback compilation includes the complete first and second issue of Super Sugar and boy coffee in color for the first time.

  • A Saddle-Stitched, 6.625 inches x 10.25 inches Comic Book.

JUST A LOTTA TANYA: RISE OF THE FEMONSTERS Comic Book Variant Cover Spotlight – MG Curves!

First Comics News - Thu, 08/26/2021 - 14:48

The Kickstarter campaign for Alexander “Monstar” Raymond’s comic book – Rise of the Femonsters is almost finished. But we still need your help to make sure it reaches its funding goal. Consider pledging on Kickstarter to make sure this comic book comes to life at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/monstar/rise-of-femonsters-issue-1-horror-comic-book. Monstar shares his story about one of the comic’s variant covers:

MG Curves rendered this incredible cover. He was actually recommended to me by a client, but I knew his work before. I had seen his erotic pin-ups of well-known actresses and appreciated his unique style.

I reached out to him, and aside from providing a couple of reference images, I just let him do his thing. I really loved the colors he used, evoking a real Emanuele Taglietti vibe.

The artwork features RISE OF THE FEMONSTERS‘ main vampire Countess Dracula (inspired by Tanya Tate). The Countess is sitting back and enjoying a glass of ….wine (?)

She is wearing a sheer robe and cozily relaxing on the couch in her castle. If you look behind the Countess, you may notice her prized sword is right behind her.

This cover is available via a pledge or add-on and comes with a bonus trading card.

The campaign to get RISE OF THE FEMONSTERS comic book funded is open now through August 31st. Click here to back the comic book!

Darkhawk # 1– One of the most beloved Marvel heroes from the early 90s (1991 to be exact) returns with a new lease on life….and a new owner of the amulet: Chris Powell is no longer Darkhawk so the mantle goes to a promising young basketball player named Conner Young who gets a medical diagnosis that brings his basketball career to a halt but as luck would have it, the amulet comes into his possession and the role of hero is thrust upon him. This is a very fun read and Kyle Higgins is without a doubt a wonderful writer who’s truly redefining the superhero genre for a new generation of comic book readers, bringing the same magic that made “Radiant Black” an excellent read to a character that Marvel will dust off every chance they get. While fans may miss Chris Powell in the role of Darkhawk, I feel like this new iteration of the character will indeed make fans buy a Marvel comic for the first time.

Echolands # 1– J.H. Williams and Haden Blackman return to give us a series that plants its roots in fantasy and magic but it also succeeds in being a good read, The focus is on a local thief names Hope Redhood who hope to escape from a mad wizard and his daughter and I really like how not only is the story moves at a fast pace but it also mixes in different genres such as horror movie vampires & retro rocket ships to elves and mobsters and it definitely works to perfection, making this series very unique and if you enjoy those genres blended in so good effect, this is a series I highly recommend.

King Spawn # 1– I had such high hopes for this series seeing as it was about to truly launch the Spawn Universe to great effect but to be honest?! it was quite a chore to read this issue; It’s almost as if Todd McFarlane (Along with Sean Lewis) crammed too much plot elements into one issue (Which may or may not explain the ludicrous $5.99 cover price); That and the fact that there felt that was absolutely no connection to this universe, so I fell like if McFarlane really wants to bring in some major attention to Spawn, then he should do it in a way that won’t chase away his audience.

Spider-Man: Life Story Annual # 1– This companion piece to the groundbreaking 2019 series shows us Spider-Man aging in real-time, but this time it’s being told through the eyes of J. Jonah Jameson. Jonah contemplating his hatred for Spidey as well as how his life turned out made for a brilliant character piece but at the same time, will make the readers look at Jonah in a completely different way. Chip Zdarsky and Mark Bagley deliver another timeless classic that examines the nature of hatred and forgiveness and I would not mind seeing Spider-Man: Life Story Annual # 2

Superman ’78 # 1– This is a series that will no doubt be on the radar of any Superman fan. Seeing the Richard Donner/Christopher Reeve era come to the comic pages is indeed a beautiful thing to behold and I like how Robert Venditti showed much major respect to this series all while paying homage to “Superman: The Movie”; The introduction of Brainiac is an excellent touch and makes for the perfect villain to set up this series, and the fact that he’s in his Pre-Crisis form is icing on the cake, it’s also a joy to see him in this classic cinematic universe (Rumor has it he was this close to being the villain in 1983’s “Superman III”); Superman ’78 is an amazing read that will pay respect to Richard Donner but will remind any fan of The Man of Steel that you can absolutely believe that a man can fly.

Well, that’s it for me this week. Thanks for sticking around and I will see you all next time.

Wednesday Comics: DC, November 1980 (wk 2, pt 1)

Sorcerer's Skull - Wed, 08/25/2021 - 11:00
My goal: read DC Comics' output from January 1980 (cover date) to Crisis! This week, I'm looking at the comics at newsstands around August 28, 1980.

Action Comics #513: It feels like the late 90s idea of riffing off the Silver Age for a "Neo-Silver" approach, wasn't actually original to the 90s. This Wolfman/Swan story features the return of Superman Island, which was an island shaped like Superman that Superman had thrown into space for reasons he doesn't want publicly known. At the opening of the story, it's heading back to Earth! Two hoods know the secret, so Lois is trying to track them down to keep them from talking, but H.I.V.E. wants to know what they know. Turns out Superman Island has a core of Kryptonite. Luckily, a group of friendly aliens have made the island their home and use Kryptonite as an energy source, so they are eager not to let any of it get away. The aliens help Superman defeat H.I.V.E., then Superman gives the island a super-push toward a planet the aliens can settle on. In the Airwave backup, our young hero teams up with the Atom and his inexperience and lack of caution get them both in trouble.

Adventure Comics #477: DeMatteis and Orlando have a really desperate Aquaman going to the mayor of New Venice to get his help (how?) to find Mera. This seems particularly pointless since Aquaman had previously said he would help the Mayor find his brother and didn't, and the people of the city are upset due to his recent attacks on them while controlled by Poseidon. A little girl asks for Aquaman to help her cousin. Cal Durham whose a former henchman of Black Manta and now can only breath water. He tells him Manta is again up to no good. They go to check it out, but are captured. Manta and his crew of dissaffected and marginalized surface folk plan to attack Atlantis. Starman wasn't dead, but also his series wasn't ending (yet), just changing direction. Levitz and Ditko have him going through a number of almost Starlin Cosmic trials to rescue Mn'Torr. This is the best installment of this in a while. The Plastic Man story manages to work in roller-skating and disco, and swipes at 70s pop songs Pasko must have found annoying. Staton's art is up to the semi-comedic challenge as always.   

Brave & the Bold #168: Burkett and Aparo bring us a Team-Up with Batman and Green Arrow. This could be tricky, because Green Arrow can be seen as a low rent Batman with a more limited schtick, but by 1980, they have distinctive personalities. Green Arrow volunteers Batman to appear a charity benefit performance of escape artist Samson Citadel, a reformed criminal who Green Arrow took set on the straight and narrow. When crimes are committed requiring the skills of an escape artist, Citadel falls under suspicion. Batman investigates and discovers a hypnotist who has been mesmerizing folks to commit his crimes for him. Green Arrow confronts Citadel who he saw leaving the scene of a crime and realizes he's hypnotized. Ultimately, his appeal to his friend breaks the spell, while Batman escapes from a deathtrap in full Houdini style. In fact, the last page is Batman describing step by step how he made the escape. 
The backup story continues Nemesis quest for justice. Spiegle's art works well for the pulpier fair.

Detective Comics #496: The "dollar" days of this title are over, and it returns to being a normal-sized comic, meaning we only get a Batman lead story and a Batgirl backup. Fleisher and Newton bring back the Golden Age Clayface who has appeared since 1968 (in his single, previous "Earth-One" appearance). Batman drops in a Horror Film Exposition held aboard a luxury yacht belonging to actor/director John Carlinger. Batman seems familiar with and enthusiastic about Carlinger's films, which is a surprising bit of characterization. Anyway, when this event is televised in the psych hospital of Basil Karlo, the original Clayface, he's offended he wasn't invited. So offended he kills a nurse and two other people to sneak onboard and attempt to kill Carlinger. Meanwhile, we learn that Carlinger is in a dispute over money with his production partners. Then, Clayface show's up and starts trying to murder people--specifically those partners. After a tussle with Clayface, Batman realizes the truth and uses that knowledge to trick Clayface, who isn't Basil Karlo, after all. Fleisher delivers a nice (if simple) little mystery here worthy of the title "detective comics" and it's good to see Basil Karlo back.
The Batgirl story by Burkett and Delbo has her facing off with a Dr. Voodoo (no relation to Brother Voodoo, who is also a doctor) who is using music to put people into a trance state to do his biding. Batgirl does some good observation to figure this out, and use some sound equipment to break Voodoo's hold.

Green Lantern #134: Wolfman and Staton have Dr. Polaris thoroughly defeat Green Lantern. He takes the power ring and leaves Jordan in the Arctic. Jordan plans to make his way to a national geographic research station--on foot. This section portrays Hal Jordan as a badass, walking across the ice, battling a bear and a wolf, and going snowblind before reaching his destination in his torn uniform. (Wolfman supplies the idea that the Green Lantern costume, made for space, is protection against the cold to a degree to make this work.) When he's back in California, he seeks out his friend Tom Kalmaku for help, who seems to contemplating suicide due to work setbacks. Jordan slaps him around, and the two set out to somehow defeat Polaris. 
In the backup story by Sutton and Rodriquez, Adam Strange is being tortured by Kaskor and his men. Strange tricks them to make his escape, but the base is going to explode for some reason, and he only gets out via zeta beam. A beam that returns him to earth! 

House of Mystery #286: This issue is rougher than the last--and the last was not top shelf DC horror. Jameson and artists Hasen and Bulnandi take us to the distant future of 2023 where a cop gets a cybernetic arm following a vicious attack by a criminal, then gets obsessed with seeking revenge and makes himself judge, jury, and executioner--because he's got a mechanical arm, and he can! The punchline is he programs the arm to seek out evil and--wait for it--the hand strangles him! The next story is a perfunctory "mummies curse" yarn by Kelley and Patricio. One savvy archeologist figures out the mummy is degrading its ability to move with every attack, so he figures he'll let it get his colleagues first, then he'll be in the clear. He's almost right, but the mummy catches him on a pier. It isn't strong enough to finish him, but in their struggles, they tumble from the pier and the archeologist is hung on the bandages. 
The last story is kind of a Twilight Zone thing. A aging man in the 1890s, regretting he is in tough financial straits and never able to provide for his wife in high-style, crosses a bridge into a peculiar purple smoke and is transported back in time three decades. As a young man, he resolves to become rich, even if that means selling to both sides in the Civil War. The Confederates pay him off after a deal, but he has to flee the union forces and is shot crossing a bridge into that same magical fog. He collapses dead back in the 1899, and drops his much fought for sack of loot--which turns out to be Confederate money.

Shakespeare Deathmatch: Game Overview Part 1

The Splintered Realm - Wed, 08/25/2021 - 10:26

The game ended up in a sweet spot for me of 'medium' complexity. I've played a few card games that were quite complex (if you didn't know how every card you had worked together, and you didn't know how every card your foe had worked together, you were at a significant disadvantage). I've also played a lot of games that were quite simple (UNO). I wanted to end somewhere in the middle. I wanted it to be complex enough that it was interesting and it challenged you to apply some strategy, but not so complex that you had to enroll in community college to keep up. I will record a demo video at some point, but I thought in the short term I'd talk through a few rules... the basics are this:
1. You play a character from a Shakespearean play, trying to kill other characters from a Shakespearean play. Spoiler alert: a lot of characters die in Shakespeare's plays. Don't get too attached to anyone; they are likely to be taken out.2. You try to avoid taking damage of the types your character is susceptible to. For example, Ophelia is susceptible to letters (representing emotional damage - reputation and mean notes - the original cyber bullying) and to coins (she has a family of some wealth and status). She wants to avoid having others place those cards in her damage pool. She is the polar opposite of sticks and stones - sticks and stones won't break her bones, but names are gonna hurt her.3. You try to deal damage to other characters that will hurt them. While at first you are just trying to throw any damage you can, eventually you can force characters to reveal who they are, allowing you to target your damage to what will do the most harm to them.4. Once you have a total number of points in your damage pool equal to the totals on your character card, your character is slain. When Ophelia suffers 8+ letters AND 4+ coins, she is done. Last character standing wins.

Talislanta Returns

Sorcerer's Skull - Mon, 08/23/2021 - 11:00


The word on the Talislanta facebook page is that the setting will be returning (via Kickstarter) in a 5e compatible form. While I don't know that 5e is the optimal system for Talislanta, I'm glad to see it back and will definitely kickstart it. 

This announcement puts me in a mind to get back to the series I started in 2020 but never finished where I did an in-depth look at setting. Those posts can be found here.
