Justice League Magic Mike

As a reminder that not everything in comics is doom and gloom—and that we as a country can still laugh, smile and drool, DC has released a list of its March Movie Variant covers, and they include this Justice League cover by Emanuela Lupacchino inspired by Magic Mike, the greatest film of the 21st century.

On that note, it is definitely time to call it a weekend. And the complete list, courtesy of Newsarama — more smiles to come we hope.

first_time_is_always_awkward_xd_by_nebezial-d86klrp.jpg

Link NSFW.

As long as there have been comics, there have been people imagining what happens when Superman and Lois Lane have sex. Larry Niven’s “Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex” set the standard, with a sobering, scientific look at Kal-El’s supersonic baby paste, and the potentially horrific effects of a human/Kryptonian hybrid pregnancy. And now the new artist of Rat Queens made his own little version.

Interview: Editor Marta Tanrikulu on Diving into ‘Out of the Blue’

cover

Just a few months ago I came across a call for creators to submit stories to be published in a then-untitled anthology made up of stories that, for one reason or another, had yet to find a home.

To get my head around the quick turnaround and the quality of a book made up of seemingly “unwanted” stories, I spoke with one of the editors, Marta Goodrich Tanrikulu. She informed me of the process that lead to the creation of the anthology, eventually titled Out of the Blue: A Collection of Strange Stories.
