One of the cutest moments in the Logan trailer released today (an aside: mentioning "cute" and Logan in the same sentence is very strange to me) is the moment Wolverine flicks through an X-Men comic, noting just how wildly embellished they are. The comics used aren't actual X-Men books — but now we know who made them for the movie.

It's a brand-new day in a brand-new year, and there's a lot to be excited about in 2017. We've got the big Consumer Electronic Show (CES) this week.
We're getting a brand-new Star Wars movie, Game of Thrones comes back with its penultimate season, and Marvel's got not one, not two, but three major films debuting this year. Plus, you've got a ton of books and comic books. What isn't there to love?
Robert Kirkman is apparently discounting the possibility that ratings fall and AMC cancels The Walking Dead. Or, the expense eventually makes the show not worth it, and AMC cancels it. Or, and I think we all agree this is the most likely option, the world ends in an apocalypse that makes The Walking Dead both redundant and hard to produce.
Being a science fiction creator is the most amazing adventure — you get to invent whole new worlds, brand new futures, and fantastic technologies, and you get to tell the most incredible stories about them. But it's also a tough and heartbreaking career path, whether you're in books, comics, movies or television. Here are 10 things that every brand new science fiction creator ought to know at the start.
It has been a frankly amazing year for comics — filled with big events, controversial moments, and an incredible variety of comics, with diversity in genre, characters, and stories giving us shelf upon shelf of amazing books to dig into week after week. It was hard to narrow them down to 20, but without further ado, here are our absolute favourite comics from this year.
The galaxy far far away is filled with untold stories that yearn to be uncovered — how characters we know and love came to be where we found them in the movies and the shows, what happened after those movies and shows, all of it. For two characters in particular from Rebels and Clone Wars, this neat fan comic anthology has some interesting answers.
The only comic-book artist who's ever been found guilty of obscenity can return to Florida without being immediately taken into custody. The Kickstarter for an upcoming documentary about his trial has raised enough to not only fund the film, but also to clear Mike Diana's outstanding warrant for his arrest.
Not many people in Australia will know that Luc Besson's lavish new sci-fi epic, Valérian and the City of a Thousand Planets, is actually yet another movie adaptation of a hit comic book? This is mainly because Valerian the comic was never a hit in Australia, although it's been one of Europe's best-loved sci-fi series for nearly 50 years. Want to know more about the history behind the movie, and the universe it inhabits? Here's everything you need to know about Valérian.
It's been over a year since we learned the long-awaited adaptation of Bryan K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's beloved Vertigo comic series Y: The Last Man was really happening. But with scarce news about the promised TV show since, we'd started to wonder if we'd ever see it. Today, things took an encouraging turn.
Wonder Woman's wailing rock anthem of a theme from Batman v Superman is pretty great, but let's be honest - it has nothing on the classic opening tune to the Wonder Woman TV show. So mashing up the excellent footage we have from Diana's upcoming movie with her classic theme song makes for an excellent time.
There is an historian working out of The Australian National University working hard on examining America's history. What makes this unique is the media he is using as his sources.
It's comic books.
While American history is often explored through the lens of classical literature such as the works of Ernest Hemingway or F Scott Fitzgerald, Dr Chris Bishop said as much - or more - could be learned through examining the world of comics.
Video: Last we checked, coating your body in melted silver wasn't the safest way to dress up for Halloween. So Jesse Wellens instead enlisted the help of makeup artist Alexys Fleming to help turn him into the Silver Surfer. His impressive getup was made even cooler with a silver electric surfboard that let him cruise through the streets of New York City.
Marvel has announced that Spider-Man: Homecoming will get an official prelude comic. Signs point to it taking place after Spidey's gotten his powers, possibly between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Spidey's solo debut, which would be more than welcome. Because there is no reason to see Uncle Ben die again.
The first trailer for Logan dropped this morning, giving us confirmation of the long-standing rumour that comic book hero Laura Kinney — a.k.a. X-23 — will be in the movie. If that name doesn't ring a bell for you, we're here to help: it's because little Laura could end up being the key to the future of Wolverine on the big screen.
