Fantastic Four: Full Circle Announced By Alex Ross

The legendary Alex Ross, known the world over for his artwork for both Marvel and DC, is making a big step. The comic book icon has announced "Fantastic Four: Full Circle," which represents the first time that he has ever both written and illustrated a full graphic novel. Speaking with, Ross had this to say about it:

"This is the Fantastic Four story I have been wanting to tell for years, and visually it is one of the greatest artistic experiments I have attempted. I'm excited to share this work with everyone, as it unites the two great publishing forces of Marvel and Abrams ComicArts in a bold new collaboration."

Be on the lookout for the book on shelves in August 2022.

"Naomi" set to debut on The CW this January.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 Sells For $250K

Outside of Marvel and DC, there are few superhero franchises that have endued the way that "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" has. Somewhat ironically, Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird's creation started as something of a riff on "Daredevil" but eventually evolved into its own thing that is, unto itself, a multimedia empire. But it all started with "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" #1 in 1984. Now, a near-mint condition copy of that book has sold for $250,000 at auction. As reported by Comic Book Resources, the auction site Comics Connect recently sold a 9.8 CGC graded copy of the issue that started it all. It's extremely tough to find in such good condition and is one of the most valuable books of its era.

The Rock Congratulates Shang-Chi's Simu Liu, Challenges Him To a Fight

"Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" was one of the most successful blockbusters of the year and turned Simu Liu into a bonafide star. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson recently shared the above photo of the two together and congratulated Liu on the accomplishment. He also took the opportunity to set up a Marvel and DC crossover of sorts, suggesting his character from the upcoming "Black Adam" movie should duke it out with Shang-Chi, or any other Marvel heroes who feel up to the task. Is this actually going to happen? Not a chance, but Johnson is clearly feeling confident about his place in the larger landscape of superhero movies.

Spider-Man Sculpture Timelapse

With "Spider-Man: No Way Home" hitting theaters this week, there has been much discussion of the previous incarnations of Spidey.

It's neat to see it come together and it's impressive work. Check it out in the video above.

Spider-Man: No Way Home Debuts With Near-Perfect Rotten Tomatoes Score
