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

“Every day, all over the world, Marvel’s top comic book artists flex their creative muscles to illustrate the world’s mightiest super heroes. In the spirit of The Magazine’s visual celebration of athleticism, dedication and strength, a mix of those same artists took to their drawing boards to craft bold images of Marvel’s characters like never before.”

These are gorgeously drawn and worth taking a look at.

“One thing we noticed as we went through these clips is that very few stand the test of time. What seemed surprising or intriguing at first now seems goofy in retrospect, especially in the examples that tease movies or storylines that never actually happened, because they were in movies so bad they didn’t deserve a sequel (we’re looking at you, Green Lantern).”

In which ScreenCrush ranks every superhero movie post-credits scene.

“I’ve been seeing scare tactics going around various comic artists over the past couple of days concerning an “update” to US Copyright law as a new act, and the reintroduction of legislation known as the Orphan Works Act.”

I’ve seen these going around Tumblr as well, so this is a necessary read.
