Marvel Comics pauses to reflect upon the life and career of Eisner Award-winning comic book artist Tim Sale, a penciller, inker, and letterer who was widely known for his many collaborations with Jeph Loeb, many of which became instant classics. During his career at Marvel, he worked on several memorable miniseries, including DAREDEVIL: YELLOW; SPIDER-MAN: BLUE; HULK: GRAY; and CAPTAIN AMERICA: WHITE. He lived to be 66 years old.

DC is deeply saddened by the loss of Tim Sale, a wonderfully gifted artist and kind soul.

“The entire DC family is heartbroken at the news of Tim’s passing,” said Jim Lee, DC Chief Creative Officer and Publisher. “Tim was an extraordinary artist, who was masterful at storytelling and panel layouts and his compositions were second to none. I was always so impressed and inspired by his use of lighting and shadows which infused his work with foreboding gravitas and dramatic noir sensibilities.”

Tim was born in Ithaca, New York, in 1956. He attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City and started his comics career in 1983, working for independent publishers. At DC he teamed up with writer Jeph Loeb on a revival of The Challengers of the Unknown. The pair formed a long-lasting partnership and created a memorable series of Batman stories, including Batman: Long Halloween, an era and character-defining arc. Tim’s dynamic and highly stylized artwork quickly made him a fan favorite.

Tim and Jeph went on to create some of DC’s top-selling series, including Batman: Dark Victory, and Superman For All Seasons.



Lady Gaga is in early talks to star opposite Joaquin Phoenix in director Todd Phillips’ sequel to Joker, the Oscar-winning, $1 billion-grossing, 2019 Warner Bros. hit based on the DC villain.

If a deal is made, Gaga would play Harley Quinn. However, this new Quinn exists in a different DC universe than Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, who most recently appeared in 2021’s The Suicide Squad as well as several other films.

But wait, that’s not all: Sources say the sequel is also a musical.



One week after exploding genitalia in its Season 3 premiere and increasing viewership by 17% from Season 2’s debut, “The Boys” has been renewed for a fourth season at Amazon.

While “The Boys” star Karl Urban previously spilled the fourth-season beans when he said at Variety‘s SXSW Studio on March 12 that he was “shooting ‘The Boys’ through the end of the year,” well after production had already wrapped on Season 3, Friday’s renewal marks the official Season 4 pickup from Amazon.



In celebration of 60 years of the Spider-Man comic book character and 20 years of Spider-Man films, Sony announced that a fan cut of its massive hit Spider-Man: No Way Home — dubbed Spider-Man: No Way Home – The More Fun Stuff Version — will hit theaters this Labor Day holiday in the US and Canada, with added and extended scenes. Other countries will be added soon, according to a post on Sony’s social media.



Wonder Man is the latest Marvel superhero to get the screen treatment.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton has teamed up with Andrew Guest, a writer-producer on comedies such as Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Community, to tackle a live-action series featuring the longtime Marvel character.

Guest will serve as head writer of the series, while Cretton will executive produce and possibly direct an episode or more. Cretton is working via his overall deal with Marvel Studios, signed late last year in the glow of Shang-Chi’s success. The two will also act as co-creators for the series.

Development for what is being titled Wonder Man is in the early stages, but if things crackle, cameras could be rolling in 2023.



This September, Tim Drake’s story continues in his own Robin series: Tim Drake: Robin, on sale September 27.

Spinning out of Batman: Urban Legends and the Tim Drake Pride Special, writer Meghan Fitzmartin continues the next chapter of Tim’s story with fan-favorite artist Riley Rossmo (Harley Quinn).

This kinetic, high-energy series pulls Tim center stage as a mystery over a year in the making takes shape. A new villain who’s been hounding Tim from afar decides to take things up close and personal, putting Bernard and everyone else Tim cares about in peril. All that and Tim finally carves out a corner of Gotham City just for himself, and sets up shop in his very own…murder-shack-houseboat?



Today, Marvel Entertainment announced the PLANET OF THE APES franchise is returning to Marvel Comics with all-new stories starting in early 2023! The legendary science fiction franchise has spanned over five decades with media including comics, books, films, television series, video games, and toys.

Marvel Comics and PLANET OF THE APES have a deep history that goes back over 40 years. Marvel first published PLANET OF THE APES stories in 1974, and in 1975, Marvel published ADVENTURES ON THE PLANET OF THE APES, full-color adaptations of the iconic Planet of the Apes films.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Planet of the Apes back to the House of Ideas!” Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski said. “The new saga in the pipeline is going to explore the limits of what this beloved franchise has to offer through bold comics storytelling, and we look forward to setting foot on this new adventure!”

Details on upcoming PLANET OF THE APES comic book titles, collections, reprints, and creative teams will be shared at a later date.



The wait is over! Just in time for the 40th anniversary of Miracleman’s modern era, Marvel Comics is thrilled to announce that Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham’s groundbreaking MIRACLEMAN: THE SILVER AGE SAGA will return this October!

The two visionary comic talents will complete their unfinished MIRACLEMAN storyline “The Silver Age,” including remastered editions of the first two published issues, complete with new artwork and bonus material. The series will follow the previously announced MIRACLEMAN BY GAIMAN & BUCKINGHAM BOOK 1: THE GOLDEN AGE TPB, the new collection containing Gaiman and Buckingham’s first MIRACLEMAN series.

After 30 years, fans will finally see the full incredible story of Young Miracleman with more to come!

Young Miracleman — the lost member of the Miracleman Family — is back! His last memories were of a 1963 world of joy and innocence. Now, he’s been thrust into the 21st century, where his best friends have become gods and monsters. Where can a hero from a simpler time call home in this brave new world?

"We're back! And after thirty years away it is both thrilling and terrifying,” Buckingham said. “Neil and I have had these stories in our heads since 1989 so it is amazing to finally be on the verge of sharing them with our readers."
