SAM HUMPHRIES TO PEN HARLEY QUINN’S ONGOING ADVENTURES http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/sam-humphries-to-pen-harley-quinns-ongoing-adventures/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/sam-humphries-to-pen-harley-quinns-ongoing-adventures/#respond Fri, 30 Mar 2018 12:00:34 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=167534 Harley Goes to Apokolips and Gets “New God” Powers This July

Paired with Fan-Favorite Harley Artist John Timms, Humphries’ First Story Arc Introduces Gotham’s Clown Princess to Granny Goodness & the Female Furies

It’s Fury vs. Furies in a Furious Showdown!

 

(BURBANK, CA) – (March 29, 2018) – This summer, DC Entertainment launches a bold new direction for the Clown Princess of Crime, Harley Quinn, with the creative team of writer Sam Humphries (GREEN LANTERNS, NIGHTWING) and fan-favorite Harley Quinn artist John Timms taking DC’s Maid of Mischief to Jack Kirby’s Fourth World and back.

“The biggest question, and the biggest challenge for Harley, is defining if she’s a hero or a villain,” says Humphries on his new assignment. “But why can’t she be both? Or is there a third choice to explore? My vision for the book is ‘What if Bugs Bunny were a chainsaw, hosting Anthony Bourdain’s show, but in the DC Universe?’ In our first three-issue story arc, John Timms and I are going to bring the crazy Kirby Krackle to HARLEY QUINN—focusing on the manic energy that made us cheer for her and the tragic emotions that made us fall in love with her.”

 

Beginning July 4 with HARLEY QUINN #45, Humphries and Timms have Harley kidnapped by two Female Furies from Apokolips, who deliver her to one of Darkseid’s Elite, Granny Goodness, with an offer she can’t refuse: join the Furies, get superpowers and do anything she wants! It’s a sweet deal, and all Harley needs to do in return is hunt down a rogue Fury!

 

“Harley Quinn does and says the things we all wish we could get away with,” continues Humphries. “She’s the embodiment of wish fulfillment. Harley is a wild card, and she’s a survivor; two things we all want to be at different times of the day. And Apokolips is just the beginning of our plans for Harley. No one in the DCU will be safe from Harley Quinn.”

 

HARLEY QUINN #45, written by Sam Humphries, arrives in stores July 4 with art by John Timms and a cover (below) by Guillem March and Romulo Fajardo Jr. Fans can also expect a variant cover by Frank Cho.

The TRANSFORMERS Bots Face Their Greatest Enemy Ever In This Summer’s Event Series TRANSFORMERS: UNICRON http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/the-transformers-bots-face-their-greatest-enemy-ever-in-this-summers-event-series-transformers-unicron/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/the-transformers-bots-face-their-greatest-enemy-ever-in-this-summers-event-series-transformers-unicron/#respond Tue, 27 Mar 2018 12:00:37 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=167375 The First Chapter Launches On Free Comic Book Day

SAN DIEGO, CA (March 24th, 2018) – The fate of all worlds are at stake, as the world-eating menace Unicron has set his sights on Cybertron, home of the TRANSFORMERS robots, and next in line… EARTH! A bi-weekly six issue event titled TRANSFORMERS: UNICRON arrives this July and will bring about the end of the TRANSFORMERS universe as we know it. As Optimus Prime gathers his defense against this monstrous threat, it might be too little too late.

Veteran TRANSFORMERS creators John Barber (Optimus Prime) and Alex Milne (More Than Meets The Eye) are joined by colorist Sebastian Cheng (Revolution) to tell the epic conclusion to the current TRANSFORMERS comic book universe.

TRANSFORMERS: UNICRON is a culmination of the years of TRANSFORMERS comics I’ve been a part of… and the conclusion of one of the longest continued narrative in TRANSFORMERS history” said Barber. “This is a story of heroism in the face of impossible odds; of a reckoning for an entire universe. I couldn’t be luckier than to have Alex [Milne] right here with me on this—if you know Alex, you know nobody puts more into the TRANSFORMERS than he does, and nowhere before has he drawn drama, action, and pathos at this scale. Tying it all together is the incredible palette of Sebastian Cheng. We’ve never held back before on our TRANSFORMERS comics, but this time we’re pushing ourselves—and each other—harder than ever.”

TRANSFORMERS mainstays from the past 12 years will be providing variant covers for the series, including Andrew Griffith, Nick Roche, and many more. Additionally, legendary comic artist Bill Sienkiewicz will be reinterpreting his classic cover to TRANSFORMERS #1 as a special variant, along with a new cover by Francesco Francavilla.

“TRANSFORMERS: UNICRON is a grand finale to the past 12 years of TRANSFORMERS comics at IDW and to really celebrate that and to celebrate the people who have made it such an amazing ride, we’re getting some amazing, beloved artists to contribute to what I’m sure will be our biggest—literally—TRANSFORMERS story ever,” said David Mariotte, Associate Editor. “This is an event years in the making and one that only works because of the years fans and creators have invested in the comic.”

The action kicks off on Free Comic Book Day, May 5th, with the #0 issue by the series creative; available for free at comic shops across the country. Don’t miss the world-ending first chapter of the summer’s cataclysmic event!

Bebop And Rocksteady Take A Road Trip In New TMNT Miniseries! http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/bebop-and-rocksteady-take-a-road-trip-in-new-tmnt-miniseries/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/bebop-and-rocksteady-take-a-road-trip-in-new-tmnt-miniseries/#respond Mon, 26 Mar 2018 14:00:12 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=167364 Acclaimed Creative Team of Ben Bates and Dustin Weaver Returns for a Destructive 5-Week Event

SAN DIEGO, CA (March 25th, 2018) – Following in the footsteps of Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything, writers/artists extraordinaire Ben Bates and Dustin Weaver return to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan-favorite dysfunctional duo of Bebop and Rocksteady in Bebop & Rocksteady Hit The Road! With a new issue available every Wednesday in August, there’s going to be mayhem and hijinks to keep fans satisfied all month long!

When a road trip back to New York City goes sideways and their powers begin to waver, Bebop and Rocksteady stumble upon trouble, as only they can.

Co-writer Ben Bates expressed his enthusiasm for returning to the characters, saying, “I have a clear memory of playing with my Rocksteady and Bebop figures as a kid, studying all the details that were unique to each of them, what seem to define their individual personalities and overall thinking how cool as characters they were. It’s crazy to me that I still get to play with these guys as an adult; I hope it never stops! Turtles forever!”

“I feel so lucky that Ben and I have gotten to make a contribution to the TMNT universe with these B&R stories,” said Dustin Weaver. “Hit the Road is a natural continuation of what we did in Destroy Everything. It feels just as wild and fun. I kind of love these guys.”

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman will provide variant covers for the series.

“Bebop and Rocksteady are possibly the most demented characters in the TMNT universe,” said senior editor Bobby Curnow. “Seeing their trail of utter carnage across the United States will be nothing but a pedal-to-the-metal blast. Underneath the chaos though, Ben and Dustin have found the unlikely heart—and friendship—that exists between the characters.”

Catch up on the comic book adventures of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles available wherever books are sold, and mark your calendar for a month of mayhem this August, when Bebop & Rocksteady Hit The Road crashes into stores!

THERE IS HELL TO PAY IN THIS NEW SUICIDE SQUAD COMIC SERIES, AND IT BEGINS RIGHT NOW http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/there-is-hell-to-pay-in-this-new-suicide-squad-comic-series-and-it-begins-right-now/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/there-is-hell-to-pay-in-this-new-suicide-squad-comic-series-and-it-begins-right-now/#respond Thu, 22 Mar 2018 02:00:16 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=167117  

 

Today, DC kicks off a brand-new Digital First series with SUICIDE SQUAD: HELL TO PAY, a sequel story to the upcoming animated film from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The comic series from writer Jeff Parker (BATMAN ’66) will follow Amanda Waller as she looks for an escape—from death. The first chapter is available now.

 

“Our story picks up immediately after the Hell to Pay animated film, and Waller is still on a personal mission to save her soul—and she’s willing to put the Suicide Squad through hell to do it,” says Parker. “This time, the Squad goes way out of their element and around the world to face supernatural and ancient forces—and yes, Harley is in there too!”

 

Amanda Waller’s Task Force X has completed another mission­—and in her opinion, the prize was worth the price they paid. But with the Spectre closing in to take Waller’s soul, she must find a new means of escaping death. Now looking to Jason Blood as a possible ally, Waller may face a revolt from her own team for this latest addition to the Squad. Is membership in the Suicide Squad really better than imprisonment at Belle Reve?

 

The weekly series will run for 12 chapters, written by Jeff Parker, beginning with illustrations from Matthew Dow Smith, with future chapters from artists Agustin Padilla, Stefano Raffaele and Cat Staggs.

 

SUICIDE SQUAD: HELL TO PAY Chapter 1 is available today across digital platforms. Check it out on ReadDC.com, comiXology.com, Google Play, Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook and iTunes.

 

About the movie:

Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay is the next film in the popular, ongoing series of DC Universe Movies from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The new, original story finds Amanda Waller’s top secret “Task Force X” on a mission to retrieve a mystical object so powerful that they’re willing to risk their own lives to steal it. Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay arrives March 27 on Digital and April 10 on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD.

#Marvel and @comiXology Announce Spidey: School’s Out http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/marvel-and-comixology-announce-spidey-schools-out/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/marvel-and-comixology-announce-spidey-schools-out/#respond Tue, 20 Mar 2018 18:00:44 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=167095 The Next Exclusive comiXology Originals Digital Series Coming to comiXology Unlimited

 

Available exclusively on comiXology and Kindle for $2.99 & free to comiXology Unlimited subscribers

New York, NY—March 20, 2018— Today, Marvel Entertainment and comiXology, Amazon’s premier digital comic shopping & reading service, announced the next exclusive comiXology Originals digital comic series with the debut of Spidey: School’s Out, a 6-issue bi-weekly series written by John Barber, (best known for writing over 140 issues of Transformers), with art by Todd Nauck (Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, Young Justice), with colors by Rachelle Rosenberg, and covers by David Nakayama.

Spidey: School’s Out arrives June 6, 2018 for $2.99 on comiXology and Kindle as part of the comiXology Originals line of exclusive digital content and will be available to current subscribers of the popular comiXology Unlimited service. New subscribers to comiXology Unlimited can also enjoy it for free as part of their 30-day free trial.  Spidey: School’s Out joins Avengers: Back to Basics, Black Panther: Long Live The King, The Immortal Iron Fists and Thor Vs. Hulk: Champions of the Universe, with more exclusive Marvel series to be announced.

“Summer’s here, and just like any high school student, Peter Parker can’t wait to get back to studying. Er, well, maybe he’s different in one or two ways, but seriously—who wouldn’t be excited when they’re invited to spend a few weeks at Tony Stark’s science camp? As Peter makes new friends (and new enemies), super villains target the camp’s high-tech equipment… and that means it’s time for Spidey to hit the scene,” said writer John Barber. “Spider-Man is maybe my all-time favorite character, and I’m really excited to get to tell new stories about his high-school days—and to finally get a chance to work with Todd Nauck, whose art in this story is the best I’ve ever seen from him (which is saying a lot).”

Artist Todd Nauck said, “Drawing Spidey: School’s Out hits on a lot of the high points for me drawing a Spider-Man comic! It’s always really fun to draw cool Spider-Man action. I also got to update the looks for a few of his classic villains from the Spidey rogue’s gallery as well as draw a couple of Avengers.” He continued, “John Barber’s writing and character interactions have given me so much fun and interesting material to play with visually. This project has been fun from issue #1 page 1!”

Peter Parker just survived his first year as the Amazing Spider-Man AND a year of high school! What is he going to do next? He’s going to Stark science camp!  A week indoors with the coolest technology in the world is a dream come true for Peter–and a bonanza for one Spider-foe who’s seriously upgraded his arsenal. Can Spider-Man keep the camp safe, and keep his identity secret from his first dormmate, while Peter Parker makes new friends and finishes his project on time?

“Spider-Man, a.k.a. Peter Parker, is one of the most beloved Marvel characters, and now he’s starting an all-new adventure as a summer break STEM student,” said Chip Mosher, comiXology’s Head of Content & Senior Director of Communications. “Spidey: School’s Out is a fun, digital exclusive story to be enjoyed by readers everywhere.”

Fans across the globe have been attracted to Marvel’s amazing characters through top-grossing movies, critically-acclaimed TV series, and ground-breaking new publishing series that have driven titles like Guardians of the Galaxy, Daredevil, and Black Panther to new heights, alongside perennial favorites like Amazing Spider-Man and Avengers.

ARTISTS JIM CHEUNG AND JORGE JIMÉNEZ DEBUT NEW JUSTICE LEAGUE IN JUNE http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/artists-jim-cheung-and-jorge-jimenez-debut-new-justice-league-in-june/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/artists-jim-cheung-and-jorge-jimenez-debut-new-justice-league-in-june/#respond Tue, 20 Mar 2018 12:00:01 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=167068 Comics Legends Scott Snyder, Jim Cheung and Rising Star Jorge Jiménez Launch the Justice League into a Cosmos-Shaking Mystery!


BURBANK, Calif.
(March 19, 2018) – DC Entertainment continues to attract dynamic, top-name talent, announcing today that artists Jim Cheung (Marvel’s Young Avengers) and Jorge Jiménez (SUPERMAN, SUPER SONS) will join acclaimed writer Scott Snyder (DARK NIGHTS: METAL) in launching DC’s flagship JUSTICE LEAGUE comic book in June.

On sale June 6, JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 follows the events of DC NATION #0 (on sale May 2) and JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE (on sale weekly from May 9 through 30). The Justice League is launched into a mystery that will draw out their most terrible foes…in ways our heroes couldn’t possibly imagine! In this debut issue, Martian Manhunter struggles to protect the team from an incoming threat that will shatter the world as they know it, while a familiar face strikes out on a dark path…

“I am extremely honored, and happy, to be able to launch JUSTICE LEAGUE with Scott and Jorge,” says Cheung about headlining the new series. “It has been many years since I’ve had the pleasure of working at DC, but when Scott first mentioned this opportunity, I knew I couldn’t say no. His energy and excitement has been infectious, and I can’t wait to share what we have in store! I can’t think of a more perfect book to return to DC on! These characters are ones that I grew up loving, and the prospect of being able to leave my mark on them, leaves me thrilled.”

Shipping biweekly, in JUSTICE LEAGUE #2 on June 20 by Snyder and Jiménez, the League is faced with an impossible decision…and now they must face the consequences! While Martian Manhunter and Batman attempt to recruit an old ally back into the fold, The Flash and Hawkgirl are blindsided by new challenges that could rewrite their mythologies!

“Working on JUSTICE LEAGUE is probably the most exciting opportunity I’ve ever had in my career,” says Jiménez. “I feel more than ever that this is my moment! I have in my hands a script written by the incredible Scott Snyder starring most important DC characters–Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman! Even better, I have the hyper-mega-talented Jim Cheung beside me! I can’t ask for more!”

“Justice League has been the golden ring for me since I came to DC,” says Snyder. “The story I have planned is something I’ve been building towards through DARK NIGHTS: METAL and I can’t wait to tell it in the biggest way possible. And to have mega star Jim Cheung as one partner, and rising superstar Jorge Jimenez as my other partner, I’m just thrilled to get to work!”

“One last thing for my friends, family and fans,” concludes Jiménez. “Quiero aprovechar para decir que el colorista Alejandro Sanchez es tan importante como el que más en este equipo LIGA DE LA JUSTICIA. ¡Tenemos entre manos a los mejores personajes del mundo del cómic! y prometo que daremos nuestro máximo esfuerzo para que luzcan lo más frescos, dinámicos y atractivos que podamos!”

JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 arrives in stores June 6, followed by JUSTICE LEAGUE #2 on June 20. Below is a first look at both Cheung and Jiménez’ covers for their issues. Fans can also expect variant covers by Jim Lee and Scott Williams.

THE WORLDS OF DC AND HANNA-BARBERA COLLIDE AGAIN ON MAY 30! http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/the-worlds-of-dc-and-hanna-barbera-collide-again-on-may-30/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/the-worlds-of-dc-and-hanna-barbera-collide-again-on-may-30/#respond Fri, 16 Mar 2018 14:00:56 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=166947 Four New One-Shots Team Up Heroes of the DC Universe with Popular Characters from ’1970s-Era H-B Cartoons

 

BURBANK, CA (March 15, 2018) – Following the success of DC’s modernized takes on classic Saturday morning cartoons and a previous selection of acclaimed one-shot crossovers featuring Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters, DC plans to shake up the worlds of superhero fans and lovers of old-school cartoons yet again. Today, the publisher announced plans to release four all-new one-shot comics that bring some of DC’s most exciting heroes together with well-known characters from the world of Hanna-Barbera cartoons from the 1970’s. These books will be available at comic book retailers and for purchase digitally on May 30.

 

“Mixing DC and Hanna-Barbera characters together for these stories is always fun because the results tend to be wildly unpredictable,” said DC Publisher Dan DiDio. “Even before you know what the story’s about, just hearing the names that get thrown together instantly brings a smile to your face and puts your imagination into overdrive, trying to figure out what kind of story could possibly come from these team ups. Fortunately, we’ve got the perfect lineup of creators that can bring those stories to life.”

 

The title lineup includes:

AQUAMAN/JABBERJAW SPECIAL #1

 

In a story written by Aquaman writer Dan Abnett with art and by Paul Pelletier and Andrew Hennessey, the town of Amnesty Island is besieged by a series of shark attacks, and the authorities call Aquaman for help! What’s unusual about this case is that the shark isn’t trying to kill people—he just wants to talk to them. All Jabberjaw wants is to get back to Aqualand, the future undersea utopia where he came from. But that peaceful city where man and sentient sea life have been living in harmony has been turned into a dystopian nightmare created by a new Ocean Master! Now the King of Atlantis and his friendly shark ally must team up to set things right.

This one-shot also includes a bonus short story by Jeff Parker and Scott Kolins that tells the tale of the first-ever meeting between Captain Caveman, The Spectre and the wizard Shazam.

BLACK LIGHTNING/HONG KONG PHOOEY SPECIAL #1

 

Back from Vietnam, kung-fu master Hong Kong Phooey has set up his own detective agency in the inner city. Meanwhile, Jefferson Pierce (a.k.a. Black Lightning) has uncovered a plot by three assassins to collect the components of a sacred text revealing the darkest secrets of martial arts magic, and they’ll kill anyone who owns them—including the dog who holds the last chapter of the book, Hong Kong Phooey. MICHAEL CRAY Bryan Hill, Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz team up to deliver a story with all the power of a roundhouse kick to the chops!

Plus, Jeff Parker and Scott Kolins team up once again in a bonus story featuring a pre-DEMON Jason Blood and Hanna-Barbera’s own “Spirit of ’76,” The Funky Phantom.

THE FLASH/SPEED BUGGY SPECIAL #1

 

RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS scribe Scott Lobdell, along with Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund, is gearing up to deliver a rubber-burning story that pushes all the way into the redline! When Wally West tries to take down the villain Kilg%re, he’s surprised to find he has an unknown ally who can move just as fast as he can. Dr. Pernell, a brilliant S.T.A.R. Labs scientist, has found a way to power his dune buggy using the Speed Force. When the Flash agrees to help test the limits of the vehicle in a race, something unexpected sends them spiraling out of the Speed Force and into the unknown. They land in a post-apocalyptic future, but Dr. Pernell is missing, leaving a now-sentient Speed Buggy to help the Fastest Man Alive repair the time stream and stop the triple threat of Savitar, Speed Demon Buggy and… Reverse Speed Buggy?

SUPER SONS/DYNOMUTT SPECIAL #1

 

It’s no fun for Jon Kent to be visiting Big City with his parents for the funeral of an old friend, so his best pal Damian Wayne decides to follow along and give him the inside scoop on the city. But when they go to meet Robin’s local friend, Dynomutt, they find him injured and in need of help. And Dynomutt’s human superhero companion, Blue Falcon, has seemingly turned evil. What’s the reason for this betrayal between once-loyal companions, and what role might the evil Red Vulture play in this scenario? Fan-favorite SUPER SONS writer Peter J. Tomasi teams up with Fernando Pasarin and Oclair Albert to tell this story featuring the first encounter of the Dog Wonder with the sons of the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight.

 

Each one-shot will be 48 pages long and cost $4.99. For the latest information on these and all other DC news, check out the website at www.dccomics.com or the DC YouTube channel.
