Art of War 04: Orion and Kalibak by Ramon Villalobos!

Remember how I mentioned NaNoWriMo? Worry not, faithful, as November is nearly over! In the mean time, take a look at this amazing piece by Bordertown's Ramon Villalobos, as he re-imagines Orion and Kalibak as professional wrestlers!

Art of War 03: Barda and Scott by Francesco Francavilla!

It's NaNoWriMo time and that means keeping up with blogs only can go so far! So until I find that twenty-fifth hour of the day, you will have to settle for this amazing Mister Miracle and Big Barda rt by the talented Francesco Francavilla! I only wish I could find a bigger version!

024. All hope lost! (Return of the New Gods 19)

Behind a Joe Staton and Bob Layton cover, Gerry Conway, Don Newton and Dan Adkins re-unite for the final issue of the original series for these characters. They're not quite finished with them here yet, but more on that in future installments...

Our story opens with Darkseid and Desaad, the latter looking particular witch-like this time around. Darkseid asks a simple question, "Are the humans prepared, Desaad?" His lieutenant informs him that the cosmic computer is ready to solve the Anti-Life Equation once and for all. Darkseid broods on his success, even acknowledging he doesn't know the true result of the Anti-Life Equation being raised to fruition.

Art of War 02. Big Barda vs. the Female Furies by Tom Scioli

Every now and then I'm going to fall behind on this column, especially as other projects (read: the kind that pay money) take over my time. Because of this, you will sometimes see the Dreaded Deadline Doom appear, where I feature a piece of New Gods related fan art on the page. This time around I take a look at an arguable heir apparent to Kirby's high energy style in Tom Scioli (Transformers Vs. G.I. Joe, Godland.) His rendition of Big Barda in battle with her former teammates  Lashina, Stompa, Mad Harriet and Bernadeth is just all kinds of awesome!
