Everyone appreciate Matt Baker: Both David Brothers and Sean Kleefeld have produced pieces about Baker, one of the all-time best good girl comics artists, and one of the relatively few black artists working in the Golden Age.
Well, if she plays herself, she’s already got the initials for it: “[Lindsay Lohan] to star in next Superman movie?”
Ask and you shall receive, I guess: Back in September, I wondered aloud if I was crazy to want to read a comic book based on video games based on comics, since games like that Batman: Arkham Asylum look kinda interesting to me, but I’m not a game player anymore. If you’ve checked the main page already, then you’ve no doubt seen that DC is indeed publishing a comic based on the games. It looks like it will bridge the two games, which likely means it may appeal to the folks who are fans of the games as much as (or more than) folks who are looking to the comics as substitutes for the games (like me!), and they’ve got an ideal creative team (guy who wrote the games writing, concept artist for the games drawing). The most relevant, non-fan element of the announcement is how DC is marketing and publishing the comics electronically and on paper—that frightens and confuses me, but I am easily frightened and confused by electronics. Someone else can probably make sense out of it, and declare it a great idea or not.
