If you follow the comics industry on social media, you’ve undoubtedly heard about the latest variant cover to raise the gorge of readers. Rafael Albuquerque’s variant cover to Batgirl #41 was supposed to be 1 of 25 variant covers celebrating the Joker as a fixture of DC’s canon for over 50 years. Thanks to a vocal minority, Albuquerque and DC withdrew the cover before the launch, caving to an Internet uproar that is becoming all too common these days.
Seems like only yesterday we we’re clutching our pearls over Spider-Woman’s posterior. Those were the days…
Today we have a buxom buccaneer painted in four styles. Enjoy!
Normally I have a favorite among the assembled submissions, but this week I think that every mini that was sent to me is awesome. The only thing I can say is that my least favorite was mine. There are some great color schemes and techniques this week – you should definitely take a look.
In a winter of many downs and few ups (at least so far as the weather and my life is concerned…) nothing buoys the soul quite like a good movie trailer. There is something about the promise of an awesome flick just over the horizon that reminds you–when its all said and done–whatever’s got you down is fleeting, and at some point in the not too distant future your ass will be firmly embedded in a theater seat and action packed summer cinema will be making sweet love to your eyes, ears, and animal brain.
Ah, movie trailers, how I love thee.
