Off-Panel: May 20, 2015

Our daily round-up of news around the comics space, from the gutters and beyond.

“It’s hard to deny that the Marvel’s Cinematic Universe has affected their comics. Characters generated on film have leapt into the pages of comics, and niche heroes are now comics megastars thanks to movie successes.”

This is interesting. I knew the movies affected the comics, and I know it’s only going to trend more in that direction as the movies make more and more money.

“Three decades ago, Indiana Jones’s swashbuckling brand of archaeology inspired a generation of moviegoers. Now a new exhibit at the National Geographic Museum pays homage to the actual artifacts and archaeologists that inspired Indy’s creation.”

Okay, this article is long, but I’ll probably go check out this exhibit.

“DC Entertainment revealed a bold new advertising campaign today titled “DC YOU.”  The campaign shines a spotlight on the New DC Universe (DCU) line of comic books, and reinforces the company’s commitment to creating a diverse offering of titles – something for everyone.”

Well, god knows I’m certainly encouraged to hear this focus. I’m curious to see how it plays out.
