    When Disney purchased Marvel Comics back in 2009, fans began salivating at the thought of– let’s face it– the best animation company in the world, getting its white, four-fingered gloves on the all-star roster of The House of Ideas.  But news was slow in coming and when an announcement was finally made about what the […]

    Recently a previously unknown and preserved copy of ‘Action Comics’ #1 went up for sale on eBay and it just took the throne of the highest priced comic of all time. The previous record holder was Nick Cage’s copy of the same book which sold for $2.1 million in 2011. This is one of the […]

    In one of the biggest upsets of the summer (if we’re still calling this summer), the film adaptation of Frank Miller’s gritty graphic novel ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ completely crashed and burned at the box office.  Some had predicted that the film might have a chance to actually take the number one […]

    The madness continues as we revisit an earlier time in the lives of Deadpool, the mutants who will eventually make up Cable’s first X-Force, and the very past itself! In ‘Deadpool Vs.

    It’s already been stated that the overall look of Batman in ‘Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice’ will draw heavily from Frank Miller’s classic storyline ‘The Dark Knight Returns’.  We’ve already seen a photograph that seems to indicate that his costume will be actual fabric, versus the armored look of previous movie versions. Now we […]

    Strap in, because this issue of Ms. Marvel is nothing but action. Wolverine is still here, in search of Julie. In the last issue, Kamala and Wolverine found themselves in a bit of pickle when The Inventor, an evil mix of Thomas Edison and a Cockatiel, sent a “Megagator” after them. Which wouldn’t probably be […]

    As the cover exclaims, Wolverine has 1 month to die! This however isn’t directly tied to the ongoing storyline in ‘Wolverine’ that will see Logan end up dead.
