Batman and Superman comics

DC Comics is returning to the worlds envisioned by Tim Burton and Richard Donner in two new Batman and Superman comics.

x-men election

Here in the old U.S. of A., we just came off of one of the most stressful elections in recent memory. It’s enough to make you not want to think about any sort of election ever again. But the folks running the X-Men comics don’t agree, so they’re letting readers vote for the final member of the next X-Men team, representing the nation of Krakoa. What’s Krakoa? I’m glad you asked, reader – it’s a “sentient living island located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean,” and the mutants of the Marvel universe have flocked there to set up their own democracy.

Good for them! In the current comics, a new X-Men team is being assembled and the mutants of Krakoa get to vote on who will join the line-up. And Marvel is letting readers get in on the fun by voting for one final member of the group. Does that imply that the readers are secretly mutants, since they’re taking part in the vote? Maybe! Or maybe I’m reading too much into this.

But unlike the other two projects, Madi won’t be a movie – instead, it’s a graphic novel. In a new interview, Jones explains why a graphic novel is the best medium to tell this particular story, and gives fans a few hints about what to expect when it comes out later this year. Read More »
