Io9 posted an interesting article on the upcoming Batman Ninja movie, and I thought of sharing it here :)

Batman Ninja, the upcoming animated film coming from Warner Bros. Japan and directed by JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure’s Jumpei Mizusaki, is a simple enough idea to wrap your mind around: Batman and co. are flung back through time to medieval Japan. But the few seconds of footage screened today at New York Comic Con showed that the story writer Kazuki Nakashima (Kamen Rider Fourze) and character designer Takashi Okazaki (Afro Samurai) have crafted is unlike any Batman story we’ve ever seen. Though the movie isn’t quite done yet ahead of its 2018 release, it’s already one of the most visually daring and astonishing Batman stories Warner Bros. has ever produced.

Opinions?

Personally, I'm a bit disappointed that Jason is not in it, as the "vengeful, rebellious son who dares break the family code" is pretty much perfect for a samurai-inspired take on Batman :/

On the bright side, Dick is there. If they make him into a bishounen, complete with sparkles and background flowers, all shall be forgiven ◡‿◡✿

“I've got a new Superman project that’s getting started, telling his origins. It’s like my book, Batman: Year One, it’s going to be Superman: Year One. It’s going to be telling origins from when Pa Kent discovers him in the cornfield. And the little boy grows to youth and then to manhood….I’ve never really had my meaningful crack at Superman. In the cast of DC Comics, which has far and away the strongest and richest mythology, there are those three pillars they have of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman.”

And a quote from earlier: "I've been particularly brutal to Superman, but that's not because I don't like the character; it's because the point-of-view has always been Batman's. If I did a story where Superman was the lead character, Batman would be the antagonist. I adore Superman, it's just that Batman does not, so when I'm writing Batman, I do not. It's very much a writer's job to take on a character's point of view."

(I was waiting for someone like cyberghostface to say something first, but since they didn't I thought I would post this here)

Telltale Games have announced several new titles and release dates for upcoming episodes of their currently running series.

Episode 3 of Guardians of the Galaxy, More than a Feeling, will be released on August 22nd, 2017. Episode 2 of Minecraft: Story Mode - Season 2 is expected to be released in the same month.

Speaking of August, a sequel to Batman has been unveiled, titled Batman: The Enemy Within. Said sequel will follow up on the tease from the end of the last series, where Bruce Wayne's mysterious and unhinged ally(?), John Doe, escaped from Arkham. Episode 1, The Enigma, is stated to come out on August 8th, 2017.

After three seasons and two spinoffs, 2018's The Walking Dead: Season 4 will be Telltale's last venture into their popular The Walking Dead video games. Series regular Michelle Hutchinson will return to voice recurring protagonist Clementine.

Perhaps most surprisingly, Telltale have revealed they're working on a second season for their critically acclaimed The Wolf Among Us, based on Bill Willingham's Fables. Not much is known so far beyond the release window, but Adam Harrington and Erin Yvette will reprise their roles as Bigby Wolf and Snow White, respectively.

There had been considerable speculation for some time as to the state of the longest-running North American licensed comic book ever since January, but now it's official - the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series has ended, at least in its current form, and likely moving to a new publisher.

So apparently there's an upcoming Junji Ito anime anthology coming soon. Based on the available art it appears they're adapting several stories that you might recognize from posts I've made throughout the years here.

To those who might not be aware yet: by the time of writing this, Amazon.co.uk (as well as .it, .de, .com, presumably every other division) is hosting a surprise fire sale for lots of different MARVEL trade collections up to 90% off, with prices from £/$/€4.99 to as low as £/$/€1.50 . Titles range from more modern stories (I.E., both MARVEL Nows, All New-All Different) to more classic books (DnA Cosmic, 70s MARVEL, etc.), including Star Wars comics new and old (like Vader Down or Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison).

Are there any titles you might be interested in getting?

This one really does sort of take the cake in terms of "What?" And I make no apology for sharing it on scans_daily, as I know many of us have enjoyed the work of the artist in question, and commissions in general.

Gisele Lagace (artist on Archie, Jem and the Holograms and others) posted this on her Facebook page yesterday

Welp, no C2E2 for me. Was refused entry at the border. They kept pressing about the comics I had and the sketches, and well, I had to be honest and said that I did get paid for commissions but before hand, but since they weren’t complete, it was considered work in the us. Comics wise, I had maybe $700 in value if I had sold everything. Honestly, it’s not a lot.

Was asked if I was the only one doing this as I looked surprised to be refused entry. I said no, many artists from around the world attend these to promote themselves. I don’t think they cared.

My car was searched and is a mess. And to top it off, I was body searched and finger printed too (they do that when you get refused entry apparently.) It was an awful experience.

Things then went worse when they searched me throughout and found 2 white pills in my wallet. There was no identification on them and I wasn’t sure what they were. Once I calmed down after being touched all over, I remembered they were generic acetaminophen from the dollar store that I carry around in case Marc gets a headache as it sometimes happen. I forgot they were even in there.

Anyway, I wasn’t turned around for the 2 acetaminophen, as they found those after I was refused entry for the comics in my car and the unfinished sketches but they kept us longer there until they were convinced they weren’t narcotics. I never took drugs in my life!

And to think we drove close to 2 days to get there. For nothing. (No, I didn’t get anything from that body search. Maybe Zii would think it’s a good deal.) Anyway… Driving back home.

Now that I’ve been refused entry in the US for this, it’s on file. Don’t expect to see me at a US con until I can figure out a way to get in and being absolutely certain this won’t happen.

This is deeply shameful treatment involving deliberate humiliation. I believe it's technically current laws being enforced, but they have not been to this extent at any time in the past.

If she'd completed the art would they have been able to stop her?
