Preview: DC SUPER HERO GIRLS Goes Live Ahead of NYCC!

It was back in April that I first posted news about DC SUPER HERO GIRLS here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, and tonight the first elements of this exciting new initiative have emerged. DC SUPER HERO GIRLS is a true transmedia property created by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products in partnership with Mattel - an all-new world created for girls "where they can play, watch, read and be inspired to discover their full super power potential alongside legendary DC Comics female Super Heroes, including Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl, in this all-new universe that was created just for them." The Global Launch takes place this month, and DC SUPER HERO GIRLS will have a massive presence at New York Comic-Con next week. Check out the first video and images below, along with the full announcement.


31 Days of Halloween: Wanna do a SweetSwitch with Sweets the Witch this Halloween?

31 Days of HalloweenWhile I'm a self-confessed Halloween fanatic enthusiast, as parents, my wife and I are always concerned about the abundance of extra Halloween candy that tends to wind up here at Rock Father HQ after trick-or-treating (which by the silly rules of this town has been as early as October 24 in recent years). Generally, it ends up going to my wife's office, but this year another idea has arrived via photographer Micah Smith and his wife Katie. SWEETS THE WITCH AND HER SWEETSWITCH is a new book that tells the tale of a witch that's willing to trade candy for toys. There's even a song and music video to go with it...


Remember MADBALLS? They're Back as a Comic from Lion Forge! But Wait, there's more!

The crew at Lion Forge down in St. Louis has been doing some great and fun things. In the past year, they've brought back some killer properties like KNIGHT RIDER, MIAMI VICE, AIRWOLF, SAVED BY THE BELL and PUNKY BREWSTER - in comic book form. So how do they kick off year two? They'll be doing that at the New York Comic Con at the Jacob K. Javits Center next week, unveiling a lineup that includes a new spin on MADBALLS, and a new title about late WWE great Andre the Giant. Check out the full details below...


American Girl releases "The Care & Keeping of Us: A Sharing Collection for Girls and Their Moms"

Until a neighbor mentioned it to me a couple of years ago, I had no idea that Mattel's American Girl had books to help girls with some of those more awkward things that can come when puberty arrives - a time I'm totally not looking forward to, if only because I've only experienced it first-hand as a guy, and now I have two girls. While I'll certainly do my best when the time comes, my wife will no doubt be interested in the news that just arrived today - American Girl has partnered again with pediatrician and New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Cara Natterson, on a new go-to guide for moms and daughters. The new three-book set, The Care & Keeping of Us: A Sharing Collection for Girls and Their Moms, provides the tools to get the conversation going on topics most top-of-mind for growing girls—from body basics, hygiene, and healthy habits to friends, social media, clothing, and more.


In Pictures: The Rock Daughters' First Comic Con: Wizard World Chicago 2015

My wife and I have been attending the Wizard World Comic Con Chicago (previously dubbed simply "Wizard World Chicago") off-and-on since 1999. We started attending as fans, and in large part I credit the event as giving me the inspirational push to jump into my own creative endeavors at the beginning of the 21st century. By 2003/2004, we'd become exhibitors in the "Small Press" area, showing off my short films and selling some wares. In the years that would follow, my path would change, and by 2008 I was a listed guest, and my comic book DEATH WALKS THE STREETS would launch at Wizard World with an exclusive variant that the late Comics Buyer's Guide declared a "Must-Have Convention Variant." Strange times, indeed - and then I became "The Rock Father," and our convention-going came to an end - but not until one last round in 2010 when Addie was still in a baby carrier. So here we are in 2015, and man has Wizard World changed...
