Designed by Ant Lucia.
Although “Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure” has been on store shelves since September, DC Comics is set to continue the game’s distinctive art style in a set of “Scribblenauts”-themed variant covers in January. CBR has the exclusive reveal of three variant covers: “Nightwing” #27, which homages Scott McDaniel’s “Nightwing” #2 cover; “Batman/Superman” #7, a nod to Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns” #3; and “Green Lantern” #27, a clear nod to Neal Adams’ iconic cover for “Green Lantern” #85, which featured “Snowbirds Don’t Fly” — the story where Oliver Queen discovers Roy Harper’s heroin addiction.

One of my favorite things to do at Comic Con is to just explore; wander aimlessly. Doing that ensures that you will find something unique. Something you probably won’t find by just surfing the net. Saturday, Day Two of NYCC 2013, I came across a small booth that was advertising a comic called A Tale of Cosmic Fistcuffs. While the two creators of said comic sat behind the booth working they had a spokesperson passing out cards and asking people to check out their comic. His description of the comic sounded interesting and got my attention.
Overall, the idea isn’t anything spectacular. A Tale of Cosmic Fistcuffs, in a nutshell, is a goofy science fiction comic involving robots, aliens, and pro wrestling. I just got around to reading it today and I’ll say I found it entertaining and fun. I had purchased issue #1 at Comic Con and as a thank you from the Earl Yi, the artist, I received a small sketch of Hal Jordan on the inside flap of the comic I bought (picture below).
I thought that was pretty cool him even though the “free sketch with every purchase” ad they had is just a ploy to pull Comic Con attendees in. Still, it’s a pretty neat little sketch and I appreciated it. But getting back to the comic… yeah… it was a fun first issue. Also, it had a nice presentation, featuring an embossed front and back cover and a conect-the-dots image on the back page.
You can find out more about A Tale of Cosmic Fistcuffs www.GWFComic.com.
Justice League: War will be with us in 2014, and stars Alan Tudyk as Superman, Jason O’Mara as Batman, Michelle Monaghan as Wonder Woman, Christopher Gorham as The Flash, Justin Kirk as Green Lantern, Shemar Moore as Cyborg, Travis Willingham as Shazam and Steve Blum as Darkseid. The Dark Knight Returns director Jay Olivia will direct.
I’m fine with this.
