Hulu Schedules Batman, Bill Finger Documentary

Looking for a way to celebrate Free Comic Book Day without leaving home? You’re in luck. As reported at Deadline, Hulu has scheduled their original documentary Batman & Bill to premiere that weekend. The film examines the life of Batman co-creator Bill Finger, along with the campaign to have DC Comics officially acknowledge his essential contributions to the hero and his myths. At last year’s New York Comic Con Hulu screened a promising extended excerpt from the movie.

Batman & Bill, directed by Don Argott & Sheena M. Joyce, will debut on the streaming service Saturday, May 6th.

Cheers

Trailer for Justice League

This morning Warner Brothers released the first full trailer for this fall’s Justice League movie and it, well, looks like a Zack Snyder film.

But hey that split second snippet of Amber Heard’s Mera looked cool.

Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller & Ray Fisher. The film, directed by Zack Snyder, opens November 17th.

Cheers

Cosmo’s Gallery Remembers Bernie Wrightson

On Saturday comics legend Bernie Wrightson passed away at the age of 68. Over the years his name had become synonymous with horror comics in a way few (arguably no) others have before or since. His detailed line work added a naturalistic element to his art which only heightened the sense of atmosphere. His imaginative creature designs mixed the humane with the grotesque, finding their best expressions in Swamp Thing (co-created with Len Wein) and his acclaimed adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (Guillermo del Toro wanted to use Wrightson’s illustrations as the visual basis for a Frankenstein film). His contributions did crossover to superheroes from time to time, most notably in his art for Jim Starlin’s Batman: The Cult miniseries. So, as we extend our sympathies to Wrightson’s loved ones, we also remember the legacy he leaves behind.

Rest In Peace, Bernie Wrightson

The Haul: March 2017

Looking back on last month’s article, I came to the realization that I tend to add more books to a list than I’m actually able to read and, in may cases, afford. There are only so many hours left at the end of the day to tackle my pull list, and, while they are a passion, comic books are not my only hobby. On top of that, I’ve been reading a lot more “older” stuff lately. This list will be more realistic, conservative towards what I think I’ll actually read. If I get to more, great! I’d love to read every good book out there.
