As always, check with your retailer for availability, as not all releases may be on sale in all areas at the same time. Here is what’s on my pull-list this week. In ‘Skyman’ #4, fighting for his life thousands of feet […]

    Ellen Page a.k.a. the X-Men’s Kitty Pryde introduced an exclusive clip from ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ on the MTV Movie Awards.  This clip had previously been included in the first ten minutes of the film, unveiled by director Bryan Singer at CinemaCon a couple of weeks ago, but this was the first time it […]

  • Splinter Debuts In New ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ TV Clip

    Maybe I’m getting old, but I think the ‘MTV Movie Awards’ is kind of a joke.  It comes months after the end of “Awards Season” which caps with the Academy Awards each year, so they’re celebrating the movies of last year almost halfway through this year.  And the awards are voted on by fans, so […]

    Straight from the pages of most of the ‘X-Men’ novels, the strangest mutant of all that lives within the margins of the mutant universe, Doop, is getting his own book. Doop isn’t exactly a mutant as his origin puts him as a Cold War era experiment that was the key cause of the fall of […]

  • Abe Sapien Is Going To Get Much Darker In His Ongoing Comic Series!

    From the pages of ‘Hellboy’ we’ve seen Abe Sapien grow as a character and into his own solo title. While things have been kind of bleak for our fishy friend already, current Editor-in-Chief at Dark Horse Comics as well as co-writer of the comic, Scott Allie, let us know that things are going to be […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Captain Marvel’ #2

    If I didn’t consider myself a card carrying member of the Carol Corps before, I definitely am one now. (Are there actually cards? I should look into that…) After becoming a fan of Kelly Sue DeConnick through ‘Avengers Assemble’ and ‘Pretty Deadly’ (and her amazing internet presence), I finally decided to check out ‘Captain Marvel’ […]

    Over the past few years, Danny Rand has popped up here and there in various comics in a supporting role as an Avenger or a Defender or a Hero for Hire, but now Iron Fist is making a big comeback to all things Marvel. A few months after it was announced that Danny Rand would […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘What If? Age of Ultron’ #2

    Posted Sunday, April 13th, 2014 09:00 am GMT -4
    by

    When Marvel announced their brand new ‘What If?’ series, I was stoked for it. As one of the many who were disappointed with ‘Age of Ultron’, I was hoping that ‘What If? Age of Ultron’ would have offered an alternate timeline worth getting behind. But now that the second issue has been released, I don’t […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘All-New X-Factor’ #6

    Posted Saturday, April 12th, 2014 07:00 pm GMT -4

    In the last issue we saw that all things were not as they seemed and Danger wasn’t taking it that well. A new company on Serval’s radar is actually a front for Magus having returned to Earth and becoming a mega corporate force while Warlock now seems to be on his side. The two forces […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘All-New X-Men’ #25

    The ‘All-New X-Men’ have just hit a new milestone with 25 issues of the young X-Men from the past now stuck in the present. This is probably a good jumping in point if you’ve been missing out on the series (and if you didn’t have the last 5 part story line with a cross over […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Nightcrawler’ #1

    Posted Saturday, April 12th, 2014 11:00 am GMT -4
    by

    With Kurt Wagner returning to the land of the living in the pages of ‘Amazing X-Men,’ it is only fitting that Marvel gives Nightcrawler his own title. It is also only fitting that they put the ever infamous Chris Claremont in charge of writing such a classic X-Men in his own book! Did I mention […]

  • Kate Mara Doesn’t Know Much About The ‘Fantastic Four’ But Hints At Grounded Take Of The Characters

    We all know Hollywood is bursting with actors and actresses that are unabashed fanboys and fangirls; everyone from Ben Affleck, Nathan Fillion, Michael Chiklis (who actively lobbied for his role as The Thing) and Kevin Smith to Rosario Dawson and Zoe Saldana.  But of course like any select population, you’ll get a sprinkling of all […]

  • Sony Says The ‘Venom’ And ‘Sinister Six’ Movies Will Arrive Before ‘Amazing Spider-Man 4′

    Posted Friday, April 11th, 2014 02:05 pm GMT -4
    by

    Perhaps inspired by the success of Marvel’s Disney created movies which all seem to be getting more and more successful, Sony seems to be determined to cut itself a comparable slice of the super hero movie pie.  Though Sony only has the rights to Spider-Man and his ancillary characters, they seem determined to fully cash […]
