  1. Agent of S.T.Y.L.E. – Captain Atom’s Atomic Ensemble! Part 1

    Agent of S.T.Y.L.E.

    For generations, humanity has been fascinated by the power and destructive force of atomic weapons. Tapping into this, multiple comic book publishers have featured heroes who have taken the name Captain Atom. You may know about Nathaniel Adam, the DC Comics hero who wields incredible quantum power. But what about the versions that preceded him? Let's take a look at the history of the heroes called Captain Atom, and a few related characters, from 1948 up to 1987.

  2. Fox Orders Pilot of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, So Yeah, That’s Gonna Go Well

    The veracity of this headline is, of couse, dependent on a completely alternative definition of "well."

    I don't know about you guys, but I'm starting to think that stories about supernatural steampunk 19th century figureheads and literary characters are kind of overdone at this point. I mean, once you've made Abraham Lincoln a vampire hunter, it's tough to get excited about Mina Harker. Fox clearly doesn't agree, however, because they're bringing Alan Quartermain and company back to live action with a new League of Extraordinary Gentlemen television series pilot. Right, because that went gangbusters the first time it was attempted in 2003. I'm sure we all look back fondly on the original film with absolutely no ill feelings or criticism.

  6. Feel the Fury of Alan Moore in Before Before Watchmen [VIDEO]

    And So It Begins

    Alan Moore has made no secret his distaste for how DC has handled the rights to Watchmen. (Though "distaste" is a little light—maybe "apoplectic rage" would be better?). Mat Rees has therefore made Before Before Watchmen, a two-part series depicting Moore's reaction to prequel spinoff series Before Watchmen. You've brought this on yourself, DC. You should've known better than to make Alan Moore angry. You won't like him when he's angry.* *Yeah, I'm mixing Marvel and DC, what of it? Part two is behind the cut.

  7. Once Upon A Time, Alan Moore Turned Down George R.R. Martin Who Turned Down Neil Gaiman [VIDEO]

    BAD IDEAS FROM SMART PEOPLE

    Writer George R.R. Martin is known for more than just his A Song of Ice and Fire series. For years he's been involved with a science fiction and superhero fantasy anthology called Wild Cards. We found out last year around this time it was going to be made into a film by Syfy and Universal, and while we have no word on the progress of that project, we did hear some interesting tidbits concerning the original anthology. Turns out, Martin was keen on getting Watchmen creator Alan Moore involved. He didn't want anything to do with it but someone else did. Martin described him as "a skinny british kid dressed all in black." Yup, a young Neil Gaiman wanted to create a character for Wild Cards but since he had no credits to his name at that point, Martin turned him down. He's obviously kicking himself now. Hit the jump to watch him tell the entire story because Gaiman chimes in near the end to tell his side of things and it's even worse than you can imagine.

  9. Before Watchmen: Minutemen #1 Is Not A Complete Travesty

    In an interview with Kurt Amacker of Seraphemera Books, Alan Moore said, "Unless it's as good as Watchmen or at least in the same ballpark, then it will end up as a complete travesty." It's not a complete travesty! Surprise!
