    Batman continues his battle with the cohorts of the demented Dollmaker. The Dollmaker’s plan is to sell mutilated bodies and replicas to rich and presumably perverse people. I mean… who wants a dead Joker replica, really? The latest conquest on the Dollmaker’s agenda is none other than Gotham’s caped crusader himself. Batman was attempting to […]

    Marvel’s modern spin on the classic ‘Marvel Team-Up’ title continues the pairing between Spider-Man and the Red Hulk. When last we saw the unlikely Avengers pair in ‘Avenging Spider-Man’ #1, they were trapped beneath New York City. More precisely, they were trapped in the belly of a giant ground worm.

    Flash Thompson may not be Spider-Man but, as Venom, he seems to have some of that trademark Parker luck. ‘Venom’ #9 ended with Flash finally hearing the dying words of his father through a letter that his dad left behind. This issue begins with Flash and his girlfriend, Betty, attending Mr. Thompson’s funeral. The bad […]

    There hasn’t been much from the set of director Mark Webb’s ‘Amazing Spider-Man’. We’ve seen a little bit of stunt work and some images of star Andrew Garfield in a pseudo-Spidey get-up. It’s not official scenes or anything, but the first real poster for ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ hit the web yesterday. It shows Peter Parker perched […]

    Continuing where ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ #674 left off, Spidey and his ex-girlfriend (and police officer) Carlie Cooper are investigating a string of mysterious robberies.

    Last week, the folks at Free Comic Book Day announced the Gold Level comic books that they will be giving away for FCBD 2012. Today, the Silver Level books hit their site.

    Writer/director James Cameron is being sued for allegedly stealing the idea for his sci-fi epic ‘Avatar’. Surprisingly, it’s not the writer of ‘Dances with Wolves’ that’s doing the suing (although Cameron’s movie is so close in theme that I would expect the ‘Dances’ writer to win in a lawsuit). Eric Ryder, who worked with Cameron’s […]

    Voltron. For many of us who grew up in the 80s, the name conjures images of epic space battles between robotic lions and monstrous alien robeasts. And, while I’m sure the epic battles will eventually appear, Dynamite Entertainment’s new ‘Voltron’ series brings the aliens, giant robots, and the heroes that pilot them down to Earth […]
