Who Wore It Best? Marvel Beats DC When It Comes To Style

Marvel-DC-Costume-Battle

If it wasn’t obvious looking at the upcoming, much-anticipated Avengers sequel, Marvel is continuously the brand to beat when it comes to all things comic books these days.

The folks over at picclick decided to take this head-to-head to the runway and compared the outfits of superheros and villains from the Marvel and DC universes to see whose overall wardrobe reigns supreme. And would you believe it, Marvel won.

Check out the full infographic below and let me know what your favorite costume is in the comments section below.

My office whiteboard has taken on a life of its own

It began as a way to clear my mind during stressful work days, I would grab a marker and just start drawing whatever came into my head and I would be ready to turn back to my work and tackle the task at hand.

What began as a productivity crutch has now transformed into a permanent wall fixture in my office. To all those that say this is a waste of time, I encourage you to start doodling the next time you have writer’s block or are struggling to work through an issue at work. Who knows, you just might like it!

This is an ongoing practice so check back for more updates and pictures.

When Comic Books and their Movie Counterparts Collide

The Chive put together a great slideshow of images mashing up comic book characters and their movie counterparts. I am always a fan of mashups, especially if they involve comic art. I have always and will continue to have an appreciation for any remediation of the artform.

I took my favorite and included them in this post. Check out the link above for the full list of images.

How One Awesome Five Year-Old Inspired Marvel Comics

This is just a great feel good story of one five year-old and his impact on Marvel Comics. In a wonderful post on Upworthy, Anthony Smith no longer wanted to wear his hearing device claiming “Superheroes don’t wear hearing devices.”

Anthony’s mother wrote to Marvel Comics, asking them to draw a comic cover proving to her son that hearing devices are not uncool. In an act of awesomeness, Marvel Comics launched the Blue Ear Poster Campaign at a center for hearing-impaired kids in New York City.

Visual proof below!

Pulp artist Earl Norem gives life to a new Mars Attacks comic book

At the young age of 88, Earl Norem, famous for breathing life into many comic book covers during their golden age, is back with a new original cover for Classics Obliterated #1 featuring Mars Attacks.

The original comics, and subsequent movie, are a personal favorite of mine and can truly appreciate the 50′s-style aesthetic Norem brings to this cover. You can see more of Norem’s work here.
