“Some really good people are working on Before Watchmen and it saddens me to see that. I won’t be supporting it in any way. I just can’t. And in all honesty — I can’t help but feel a little bit less for every creator who works on these books. Have you no decency?” -- Erik Larsen

Groo - Friends and Foes #4 (2015)

Dark Horse: "The Year of Groo marches on, as Groo marches right into Arcadio the Hero. Arcadio’s in the protection business, teaching villagers how to protect themselves from dragons . . . but he should be teaching them to protect themselves from Groo! Feather-brained barbarian thrills from the award-winning team of Sergio Aragonés and Mark Evanier, with Stan Sakai and Tom Luth."


Do you know what happens when you take a baby dragon from his mother? )

Arcadio is my least favourite recurring character in Groo. He is a take on the legends and lore of medieval heroes, but I think that Groo makes him redundant somehow.

Next up: Groo's sister, Queen Grooella!

The narrative behind these things changes all the time. And what fascinates me especially is how people who espouse different versions of the legends can appear on the same bill together at UFO conventions and not argue. These are sometimes mutually exclusive theories! As a body of fiction, this is fascinating. The fact that that fiction actually contains some people's real experience is doubly fascinating. This is all the stuff we'll be exploring. -- Paul Cornell

To start Monday morning off with some sort-of comic news, they've finally announced who will be voicing the Ray in the forthcoming "Crisis on Earth X" crossover event for the various DC TV series.

This is a little bigger than some news, since the Ray will be the first gay male hero that the DCTVU (There must be an easier name for it than that) has featured;

The Ray will debut in the crossover (which will also include Arrow, Supergirl, Flash and the Legends of Tomorrow team), before getting a four episode animated series "Freedom Fighters: The Ray", and will be played by openly gay British actor Russell Tovey, best known perhaps, aside from an appearance in Doctor Who as Midshipman Alonzo Fraim in "Voyage of the Damned" (And later making a brief cameo as a potential new boyfriend for Captain Jack in "The End of Time") as George, a werewolf in the supernatural comedy-drama "Being Human" (The UK version that is).

Some promotional art was put together by Phil Jimenez, in the style of the old multiple Earth crossover covers to publicise the event, which also hints that it will take place around the wedding (or not) of Barry Allen and Iris West.



(Click to embiggen)

Now, understandably, there has been some eyebrows raised at the decision, in the current political climate in the US, to make the Arrowverse/Supergirl crossover be based around Earth-X; the DC Earth where the Nazi's won World War II, and where we will see several Nazi versions of established heroes, so we'll have to see how THAT is handled (Secret Empire is a low bar to clear, but here's hoping)

As a geeky aside; Earth-X debuted in 1973, when WW was less than 30 years finished, as a separate home for a number of Quality Comics characters DC had acquired, like Uncle Sam, the Human Bomb, Doll Man, the Ray and Phantom Lady. They were folded into the WWII heroes following Crisis on Infinite Earths, though more modern takes on them have surfaced a time or two in the last couple of decades.

I always wanted to give the franchise as much depth and weight as possible. One of the easiest ways to do that is to politicise it. -- James Roberts

Long before Cheryl and Jason Blossom were the victim and victimizer within a taboo relationship in Afterlife with Archie, or respectively mentally disturbed and dead in the Riverdale TV series, they were more lighthearted elitist troublemakers in the old Archie Comics continuity. That doesn't mean what they got up to wasn't envelope-pushing in its own way for the relatively family-friendly venue. Especially in this, their first appearance.

Josie and friends in "The Hold Up"

Josie is best known today as leader of the Pussycats. However, for her first six years of existence, she wasn't a rock star but a sort of Everygirl counterpart to Archie (although they wouldn't appear in the same universe until some time in the Pussycats era). And before Alexander Cabot III became her band's manager, he was Josie's friend and sometimes-boyfriend. However, just as Melody was always a "dumb blonde" (prior to the 2016 reboot attempt, anyway), Alex was always a haughty and often flaky rich guy, as we see in this classic story.

'Glad to, my good man! You've made a very good choice of victims!' )

'“Curse Words” in particular was born from the idea that I wanted to do something with no restrictions on either the writing or art side, to best take advantage of Ryan’s unique storytelling abilities. Magic fit the bill in a big way, and from my initial pitch to Ryan (“So, I have this idea about a wizard who’s kind of a dick…”) the book came to be.' - Charles Soule

'Based on feedback they have apparently found that NEW VISIONS goes over big with people who are not "conventional comic readers". I interpret that to mean those people who have spent WAY too many years reading comics, and have built all kinds of rules for what they should be. The people who complain that they "don't like photos with word bubbles in them" but who have no problem with the photorealistic painted books.' - John Byrne

"While writing Green Lantern I received a letter from a fan asking about a mixup in DC continuity. In my reply I said, “One day we (meaning the DC editorial we) will probably straighten up what is in the DC Universe ... and what is outside.” At this point in its history DC Comics had Earth-One, Earth-Two, Earth-Three, Earth-B, etc. There were super-heroes on each Earth and though old-time readers had no problem understanding DC continuity, it proved off-putting to new readers who suddenly discovered there was not one but three Supermans, Wonder Womans, Batmans, etc."
