Does The Joker has the last laugh in our countdown of the top 50 comic villains? Plus a complete free graphic novel and Batman postcards!
A hero is only as good as his or her opponents, which is why this month Comic Heroes is celebrating those bothersome creeps by dedicating a whopping 15 pages to a count down of the top 50 comic gad guys, as voted for by the readers of Comic Heroes – that’s you lot! Disagree with the decisions? Then you’ve only got yourself to blame.
Elsewhere, we shift focus from villains to anti-heroes, one anti-hero in particular, mob-boss Jackie Estacado who returns in videogame sequel The Darkness II. We’re so excited about the long-anticipated sequel we got on the blower with the creator of the original comic – and a man closely involved with the creation of the game – Marc Silvestri to chat about what to expect and why it could be the best comic book adaptation ever.
That’s not all! Bryan Singer looks back on bringing the X-Men and Superman to the big screen, we celebrate 20 years of Madman with Mike Allred, Frank Miller gives us the lowdown on his work from The Dark Knight Returns to Holy Terror, your bluffers guide to DC and Vertigo and we ask the mighty George Perez about his inspirations.
And as always our extensive reviews section covers the best of the month’s releases, including Paul Dini’s collected Batman: Arkham City graphic novel, the League Of Gentlemen Omnibus HC, Self Made Heroes’ Hellraisers, a round up of the latest Marvel, DC and Dark Horse releases and Alan Moore’s superb Neonomicon.
Hey, here’s a quick low-res teaser flip-through of the entire mag! Enjoy.
Comic Heroes 10 is on sale Friday 23 December. The three amazing free postcards are courtesy of DC and the complete graphic novel is a classic Belgian hero, Thorgal, from Cinebook.
