After 12 Years Sam Kieth Returns To The Outback With “Batman/ The Maxx: Arkham Dreams” Crossover

Yep, we LOVE Batman so when we heard that artist extraordinaire, Sam Kieth was pairing up the Dark Knight with The Maxx, we got a bit giddy.  Here is the official announcement from IDW:

“Batman must face the strangest adventure of his career as he meets the most bizarre hero in comics: The Maxx!

IDW Publishing and DC proudly welcome legendary artist Sam Kieth (The Sandman, Wolverine) back to his first Maxx story in over a decade, teaming his greatest creation with the Dark Knight for a mind-blowing five-issue miniseries event. The first issue of Batman / The Maxx: Arkham Dreams will debut this September with covers by Sam Kieth and Jim Lee.

“Doing a Batman and Maxx crossover is like a family reunion with my favorite brother and our really cool cousin,” says Sam Kieth. “You never want it to end… or at least I hope you won’t!”
When a devious new doctor at Arkham Asylum conducts unconventional forays into the human psyche, he kicks off a disastrous chain reaction by experimenting on Arkham’s newest patient: The Maxx! The city of Gotham soon begins to merge with the Outback, The Maxx’s psychedelic mental landscape. It’s up to Batman to save Gotham and all of reality… but only by joining The Maxx on a trip into the darkest depths imaginable: the twisted minds of Batman’s greatest enemies!

“It’s always a pleasure to work with Sam Kieth,” says editor Scott Dunbier. “He puts his heart and soul into his art, and gives you something truly unique in the process. We can’t wait for people to see this!”

Use The Force & Click #FanArtForRose

Let’s face it, there are bullies and opinionated people everywhere, even in a galaxy far, far away.  However, when people single out, and continually attack someone on social media, well, that is NEVER acceptable.


Star Wars fans around the globe have been coming to the side of actress Kelly Marie Tran after she has been on the defense against this type of social media harassment.  Director Rian Johnson and Mark Hamill have gotten involved and shown their undying support of this lovely actress.

Now the art community is joining in with a new fan art campaign called “Fan Art For Rose.”  Simply click the hash tag #fanartforrose on Twitter or Instagram and you can see all kinds of art dedicated to her character, “Rose Tico,” in “The Last Jedi.”  Here is a look at just SOME of our favorites.

Sony’s New Trailer For “Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse” Has Us Counting The Days Till Christmas

Sony has a big year planned with Spider-Man related releases but after seeing the new trailer for “Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse,” we are on the fence with which one we are more pumped to see.  (The other movie being “Venom” with Tom Hardy.)


This time out we get a look at teenager Mile Morales as he discovers he isn’t the ONLY one with spider-like abilities.  The film looks unlike ANY other comic book themed movie we have ever seen.

“Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind “The Lego Movie” and “21 Jump Street,” bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind. “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.”

Official, Limited Edition, Darkstar X Nagel Capsule

Patrick Nagel has one of the most identifiable, minimalist art styles ever and even though he passed away in 1984 at the young age of 38, his work still inspires many today.  It was his work for Playboy and the cover of Duran Duran’s 1981 album cover, “Rio,” that catapulted him into the mainstream.  If you were around in the 80’s it’s a guarantee you’ve seen his work.


Now, Darkstar Skateboards is offering limited edition skate decks and apparel with this prolific artist’s work featured on them.


Each of the four, limited edition decks bears the name of one of Darkstar’s elite skateboarders, Ryan Decenzo, Greg Lutzka, Ke’chaud Johnson, and Dave Bachinsky
