Your favorite nerdcore rapper is at it again. Adam WarRock, a.k.a. Eugene Ahn, is putting his deft blend of lyrical skill and comic knowledge into a brand new album, titled The Middle Of Nowhere. We’ve written in the past about the connections between hip hop and comics, and Adam WarRock is at the forefront of the next wave of emcees to hone their craft while inspired by the comics and characters they love. Simply put, WarRock is dope, and he’s just debuted the video for his first single off the album, titled “B.S.F.X.” (Batman Sound Effects).
You can check out the video, featuring WarRock flanked by ComicsAlliance’s own superhero sartorialist Betty Felon and fellow cosplayer AK Wood, on ComicsAlliance!
It just was only last week that we got word that actress Yvonne Craig had signed a licensing agreement with DC Comics parent Warner Bros. to allow the production and sale of new merchandise and other products — the first in literally decades — based on her likeness as Batgirl, one of the most beloved figures from the great Batmantelevision series of the 1960s. It would seem that preparations were well underway before the announcement, because today DC has confirmed the first appearance of Craig’s Batgirl in the pages of its startlingly good comics series Batman ‘66. On sale this week, the story will be written by the book’s ongoing writer Jeff Parker and feature artwork by ComicsAlliance favorite Colleen Coover, who joins cover artist Michael Allred and storytellers Jonathan Case, Joe Quinones and Ty Templeton in making Batman ‘66 one of the very best looking Bat-books DC has published in years.
