After a few days in a row of next to nothing, today has quite a few different things to talk about, enough for a second post. So here we go:
- Marvel has posted a "visual guide" of the entire Civil War crossover. What is a visual guide? I didn't know either until I checked it out and found out how awesome it is. It has every single CW cover, including all variants and second printings, and they are all in order according to Marvel. As an addendum to that is a "visual guide" for the Fallen Son series, also released today. While not as extensive, and missing the 100 blank variants that were sold for charity, it is still interesting to see.
- The actress who will play Supergirl on Smallville has been chosen according to SSH! and her name is Laura Vandervoort. As you can see from the picture below, she definitely fills the role physically (and quickly becomes the best thing to look at on that show). The catch will be whether she can act. Who am I kidding....
According to IMDB.com, this will be the first major recurring role for the 23 year-old Canadian. And I can't wait.
- Some more cool artwork, this time from Mike Wieringo's personal site. Most everyone should know who this is, but for those who don't it is Dr. Sivana against a Captain Marvel background. Pretty sweet.
- Hell has frozen over: Rob Liefeld is returning to Image. I wouldn't normally care, but Liefeld's artwork should give me plenty of material when I am in a mocking mood. That is unless he has learned how to draw a human nose, or how not to give men extremely large breasts. This guy is a total hack. And the fact that Image has even let him return after what many call a very, very bad breakup (Liefeld helped found the company). Just so no one thinks I am being overly harsh or I don't know what I am talking about, here is the image that pretty much assured his demise at Marvel during the Heroes Reborn period.
