TNT's Titans Aims to be 'Very True' to 'Groundbreaking' Superhero Property
By Matt Webb Mitovich / May 13 2015, 11:44 AM PDT
Recently installed TNT president Kevin Reilly knows he has something special in a live-action adaptation of the Teen Titans superhero property, and as such, patience is a virtue.
Asked for a status report on the project, Reilly told TVLine at TNT’s Upfronts luncheon, “Akiva’s [Goldsman] been very busy doing some other things,” but it’s his hope that “maybe this summer” they will lock casting and ramp up production.
2nd Edition - 1st printing. By Robert Greenberger. Foreword by George Perez. Cover by Alex Ross. Wonder Woman explores idiosyncratic creator William Moulton Marston's interest in ideas of a "new woman" for the twentieth century; costume and character story changes over the decades; the influence on all other female comic book characters since her inception; and how Wonder Woman is still powerful and relevant in today's comic book renaissance. The book contains more than 250 Wonder Woman illustrations, including covers, interior comic art, and sketch treatments, beginning with her inception in the early 1940s to present-day treatments of the character. Hardcover, 9-in. x 12-in., 208 pages, full color.

THE INFINITY GAUNTLET OMNIBUS
Sunday, July 27, 2014 by Matt
When I was a youngster, I enjoyed the occasional Marvel comic, mostly Spider-Man stuff. But it was a very casual relationship up until around age 13 or so. I became a regular reader of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN with issue 360, cover dated March of 1992. Only a few months later, I was reintroduced to the larger Marvel Universe when a school friend showed me his copy of THE INFINITY WAR #1, a series somewhat along the lines of SECRET WARS, which I had loved as a child due to the epic scope and the sheer number of superheroes involved. So basically, you could say that I owe my decades of Marvel fandom to Jim Starlin's "Infinity" franchise. I'm sure I would've branched out beyond Spider-Man on my own; I was already familiar with the other Marvel characters -- but INFINITY WAR jump-started that transition.
This book isn't about the THE INFINITY WAR, however -- this Omnibus collects the previous, first series in Starlin's "Infinity" series -- hence, THE INFINITY GAUNTLET OMNIBUS. And while I view WAR as a superior installment, both nostalgically and storywise, THE INFINTY GAUNTLET is nothing to sneeze at -- nor is this book which collects the full epic.
George Pérez's Sirens #4 is now scheduled for release on June 3rd, while #5 is scheduled for July 22nd.
Wizard World Minneapolis officially began its pop culture weekend takeover last night, with a kickoff event held last night at the rotunda in the Mall of America. In addition to a trivia contest for passes and prizes, celebrity guests Michael Rooker, Kristy Swanson, Jason Mewes, and artist Arthur Suydam.
The contests and Q+ A were moderated by on-air talent from the local CW station, who were also showing off a car adorned with Flash illustrations, that is planned to be given away later this fall. Additionally, a local superhero collective and a few fans dressed up to show off some cosplay for the attending fans.
A select lucky few in the crowd got Wizard World weekend passes and tickets to an Avengers: Age of Ultron screening, happening immediately after the panel—Wizard World Minneapolis opens its doors today.
For music fans, one of Vu’s favorites, the colorful and fun Peelander-Z plays the Saturday After Party at Pourhouse in downtown Minneapolis, free before 10:30 to anyone with a Wizard wristband.

ROBIN THE BOY WONDER: A Celebration of 75 Years!
Mar 20, 2015
Here's a look at the dustcover of ROBIN THE BOY WONDER: A Celebration of 75 Years, the forthcoming hardcover collection celebrating the 75th anniversary of DC Comics' seminal sidekick. Dick Grayson is one of my all-time favorite comic book characters, and I'm both elated and humbled that one of my stories, NIGHTWING #101—the first installment of NIGHTWING YEAR ONE—which I co-wrote with Chuck Dixon and was illustrated by Scott McDaniel and Karl Story, is one of the tales selected as representative of the Boy Wonder's long and distinguished comics history.
