This is a work in progress (WIP), and world exclusive to this website! The roughs for the next webcomic featuring Nabaclis: The Human Internet! These are my intial ideas for layouts and are subject to change. As always, no script exists except for a few monologues that pop into my head from time to time. I draw the panel interiors first and then create the story around it. Next stage is pencils followed by colours and lettering. The Superhero Storytelling Engine! Building a universe, and creating a new mythology. The fun goes on... ;)

Marvel Comics have just announced it's new slate of movies featuring their massively successful superhero characters. Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from Marvel Studios. This list is awesome! Black Panther (see concept art below by Ryan Meinerding), Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, The Inhumans, and more. So much win! The beautiful thing about the Marvel Universe is the complete immersion you feel when you watch any film in their stable. A true masterclass of storytelling, utterly compelling and inspirational. Here's the full list of films announced with dates. A sight to behold, and something to look forward to. ;)

Learning lessons after completing the Celsius webcomic, I decided to rewrite the A.G.O.S.T story. Enjoy! Now working on the Nabaclis: The Human Internet webcomic! Creating a universe, building a new mythology. These webcomics are brief windows into what I affectionately call The GrowlerVerse. The Superhero Storytelling Engine marches on!

Wow! Marvel Comics have released early the first teaser trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron! This is the flagship property for the Marvel Cinematic Universe which raised the bar for all future superhero movies. Using a backdrop of Disney's Pinocchio theme "There are no strings on me" which implies the deadly robot Ultron breaking free to cause havok, it looks awesome. Just sit back and enjoy it. ;)

DC Comics have finally unveiled the beginning of their DC Cinematic Universe, and it looks great! After the constant smash hits from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the latest being Guardians of the Galaxy, we get a good look the the latest superhero films to appear. It's a highly ambitious program, and it needs to be. Taking risks and innovating is a hallmark of creativity and I'm glad to see these finally released into the wild.

To those who say that there are too many superhero movies, or the market is being flooded, I say its just another genre to add to the variety of films already out there. There are a plethora of horror films, rom-coms, action movies, period dramas, sci-fi, thrillers, and so much more. Superhero movies are a welcome addition to this mix, and I'm loving it. The market demands it. Other movie studios producing other film genres have to raise their game to compete, to deliver that powerful emotional experience that the audience craves. The most important thing for the current crop of superhero movies is that the quality must stay high, if so, then we'll be entertained for a long time to come, and that's something we all want.

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis - Trailer


My personal wish would be that Fantastic Four, X-Men and Spider-Man would revert back to Marvel Studios, from Fox and Sony, so we'd have the full Marvel Cinematic Universe experience. Imagine, the Avengers fighting, then teaming up with the X-Men, Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four guest starring in a future Avengers movie. You know, just like how they do in the comic books right now. The possibilities are endless, just like the Marvel Comics Universe!

The Flash - TV Trailer


Now that the DC Cinematic Universe is upon us we can look forward to Superman and Batman in the same movie, Wonder Woman's first ever solo big screen adventure, and the Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman also having awesome films being made. A huge change from just the usual Batman and Superman movies. This is truly a golden age of superhero fiction. Risks are being taken and that's why I feel this era will go from strength to strength.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D - Season 2 Teaser Trailer


It was recently announced that Iron Man with guest star in Captain America 3. How awesome is that?! Seemingly, the Avengers old order changeth with the soon to be seen superheroes Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, and the Vision joining the team and more characters planned for the future. Great stuff. Anyway, enjoy the infographic below, from Comics Alliance, who are also part of my Essential Comic Book Websites List. ;)

Justice League: War - Trailer


What makes this even better is the continuing foray into live action television by Marvel and DC Comics. Bringing their universes to the small screen is a masterstroke. Both companies have two different strategies, Marvel have combined their movie and TV stories into one cohesive universe. DC Comics, on the other hand, have opted for separate universes, maintaining a wall between their movie and TV product. This means they'll have a Flash TV series as well as a separate Flash movie, with different actors playing the lead role. A multiverse, if you will. It's an interesting way of doing it and I have faith that they'll succeed.

Arrow - Season 3 Trailer


DC Comics also have the TV shows, Gotham, showing the early days of the Batman Universe, Constantine, introducing a world of magic, and their smash hit, Arrow, now on season 3! Marvel Comics have the awesome Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D with strong links to the Avengers cinematic universe, and the upcoming TV series, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist. These four new shows will be a darker, more gritty and grounded universe showing another side to the Marvel Universe. These new characters will eventually team up to form, The Defenders. Also coming soon from Marvel Comics is the TV series, Agent Carter! DC Comics animated movie universe is going great with fantastic stories including Justice League: War and Aquaman: Throne of Atlantis. As I said before, it's a real golden age of superhero storytelling, and very inspiring to see.
