"Without a doubt, the comics format made me the man I am today. I remember reading [Martin Luther King and The Montgomery Story], 14 pages and sold for 10 cents, and as a student with other students in Tennessee, we read the book and had a protest using the lessons from that book.

It was our guide – it was like our road map. And this is my belief – March, with its three books, will be a road map and a guide to many people in the future, especially young people. Especially children.
" - Congressman John Lewis

Given the nature of the book and what is being shown, there is racism, intolerance, and some violence.

5 and 1/4 out of 124 pages

He's not verbally so; he doesn't say anything.

He's not demonstratively so; he's a constrained person.

He's physically so; his face conveys his feelings.

Nothing's written on it when the story opens, because he's going about his daily business- his job, his coming home to where he lives, his making love to the woman he lives with.

He's not invested in any of those things. )

Peter Corbeau appeared in CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE MIGHTY AVENGERS #8. I remember him from UNCANNY X-MEN #98, as reprinted in CLASSIC X-MEN #6. Where he looked remarkably similar.

A page from AVENGERS #32, part of ORIGINAL SIN, had Captain America in the far future talking to Franklin Richards about the Incursions and how to stop them. And there is an image of a white Iron Man armor fighting a high-tech Captain America armor.

When last we left our aerodynamic heroine, she was trying to help clean up Caminus and create a multi-planet Transformers council of worlds, where Cybertron and its colonies would have an equal voice. Meanwhile, Prowl decided to ruin things because he's kind of a jerk.

He didn't phrase it exactly that way )

'When I started writing this, I was told, "Have fun." That's a great mandate, and DC stuck by it. The larger Convergence concept is a huge epic that plays out in the main miniseries. Our tie-ins feed into that and hopefully enrich the main story, but they're basically self-contained stories revisiting beloved characters. So it's win-win.' - Stuart Moore

And with deep aplogies for the delay, we dive in to the second part of the third story arc for Mike Carey's grand story, Lucifer. The first part can be found at http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/5317824.html.

Without further ado, let us continue on to the story itself. When we last left the world of Lucifer behind us, the angelic host was preparing to invade Los Angeles to claim Lucifer's gate guarded by a Japanese Demon and the countless times incarnated soul of a hostile baby, an insane angel was experimenting on Archangel Michael and a messed up angel experiment was about to kill Elaine's real father.

When last we left our ambassadorial heroine, she was undermining the elected leader of Cybertron by establishing Optimus Prime as a living deity on Caminus. Also there were rampaging giant giant robots, so now there's a lot of repair and clean-up to be done.

Charles Soule: It begins six years after the point where the original Civil War ended, by Captain America surrendering to Iron Man in the big Times Square battle. However, in this story, that didn’t happen, and the Civil War didn’t end. In fact, it spilled out, became much larger, and involved every person in the country, powered or not.

It’s completely self-contained. For all intents and purposes, it’s the United States, although changed drastically due to six years of super-hero Civil War. Steve Rogers holds one territory, called the Blue (whose capital city is Liberation), and Tony Stark holds the other, called the Iron (the capital there is Resilient Alpha). They feel very different, as you might expect. There are many surprises hiding in the Warzone beyond that, but let’s let the readers find them on their own, yeah?

Another amazing piece from my pal Juliandroid, original concept thought up by me during that whole #ChangeTheCover controversy ages ago. Juli's going to be offering commissions via tumblr pretty damn soon, so snap up those slots if you're interested!

DC Sneak Peek: Catwoman

There's such a great history for the character, but in the same way Gotham is an elastic town, she's got an elastic story, where there's a lot of room for her within the DC mythos that Mark [Doyle, the Batman group editor] and company have been excited to explore. The last arc of Catwoman was a chance to tell a really great story for Selina that made the most of her sly smarts and set up some characters that could give her a run for her money, in one way or another, and the reader response has been incredible. This arc is where all those delicate things start to go to pieces, and in some ways that's even better." - Genevieve Valentine

Skottie Young: Marville just exists. We jump into a day that’s like any other day. These kids live in houses and have parents and go to school. There is no deep origin other than their parents all did grown up stuff and then they are all born and now blast each other with eye lasers and hand cannons. It’s as if the world has always existed this way and we get to step into a regular day.

this already looks better than the real AVX )

Avatar Press's offering for Free Comic Book Day this year is a teaser for a new sci-fi series by Kieron Gillen and Omar Francia.

'[Avatar publisher William Christensen] threw me a seed of something he thought Avatar should be publishing. That's how we were working then. Uber came from a basic seed idea of 'Nazi Germany invents Superhumans, prompting an arms race between the Allied and Axis powers." Mercury Heat's mandate was even wider: "Female-lead action comic."' -- Kieron Gillen

'I just want to show people that you don't have to change what it is about these characters that made them appealing back then. You can jump right in and show them as they were, and people will accept it. I always learn this lesson watching my kids read old comics. They're never thrown because they're reading a reprint of something made 50 years ago. That never messes with them. They just accept it. They don't care that the characters don't have cell phones. People have really weird ideas when they say, "This book is so dated because they're riding skateboards" or whatever. That stuff never matters. What you do is strip down to the classic things we all relate to. All the basic humanity in the world doesn't change, and everything else is just some weird dressing.' - Jeff Parker

Jupiter's Circle #2

[personal profile] history79 posting in [community profile] scans_daily



"We thankfully live in a world that’s reasonably progressive now, at least in the West. the last ten to fifteen years has seen major strides in LGBT rights to the point where it’s kind of odd NOT to regard another human being as having the same rights you have as opposed to this just being a fringe issue. This is especially true among young people, which is a fantastic glimpse into the future, and most sit-coms or dramas now have one matter-of-fact gay character, which is fine. However, 1959 was quite different and I like the idea of a guy who essentially has two secret identities. On the hand he’s a superhero, in his other life he’s an old school professional who’s respected by his peers, but secretly he’s got a private life that could ruin everything. From a dramatic point of view there’s something much more interesting about a gay superhero in 1958 because the shockwaves it would create if he came out the closet would be enormous in the period. This opening story is kind of an analogue of what was happening to the carefully managed movie stars of the day like Rock Hudson or Montgomery Clift."

Today marks the release of A-Force, the all-female Avengers team spinning out of Secret Wars. It is very awesome. We meet the heroines while they're attacked by a giant, mutated shark. If that description doesn't grab your attention, perhaps the roster will...

"It was an opportunity to pay homage to the Guy Gardner: Warrior era, but take it in a totally different direction. So that was a lot of fun. Also, he really hates Hal Jordan, and we wanted an outfit that was visually representative of the fact that Hal Jordan is going to get an ass-whomping." - David Gallaher

Hi, everybody!

It's time for another round of Jump Start, the time when the Shounen Jump manga anthology tests out new series, and some of the chapters get to appear in the online edition. Last week's new entry has a long title.



It's mentioned in the editorial content that Jump doesn't do that many "school club" series. But this one is also a sports manga, so that's entirely in their wheelhouse. Fifteen pages of forty-five, which is a bit shorter than most of the first chapters we've seen lately.

Shall we dance? )

Sadly, the series that started this week will not appear in the online edition at all. Lady Justice is a superhero parody with a heroine who's invulnerable, but her clothes aren't, demonstrated repeatedly. It reminds me a little of Empowered but with less bondage so far.

But the third new series, Devilyman will be appearing, so you can look forward to that!
