New York Comic Con has wrapped up for another year, and unlike San Diego Comic Con there was actually a good amount of comic book related news to come out of the con. From Dark Horse announcing comics based on James Cameron’s Avatar to Mark Hamill returning to the The Flash, there were a lot of really cool announcements for both comics and comic book based media. So without further ado, here’s a rundown of all of the big news to come out of this year’s NYCC! Read the rest of this entry
Doctor Strange #1 (Marvel Comics)
All New All Different Marvel has begun, and with it comes Doctor Strange, which brings the Sorcerer Supreme back to a monthly series. With the team of Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo (and the fact that there’s a movie coming out in a about a year) there’s a lot riding on this first issue of Doctor Strange. Thankfully, Aaron and Bachalo’s debut issue is a lot of fun., and the perfect book for people who are looking to be introduced to the character. Read the rest of this entry
Here we go again.
That’s honestly the only thing that I can say after seeing the tease for Civil War 2. Yes, the big storyline that’s being used on the silver screen in Captain America: Civil War is getting a sequel, and no, we know nothing about it, other than it’s going to have the new Iron Man fight Sam Wilson’s Captain America.

Superman #44 (DC Comics)
The current “Truth” storyline in Gene Luen Yang and John Romita Jr’s Superman has been pretty slow going, but all that changes this month with Superman #44. Now that Clark’s secret has been let out, the latest installment in the game-changing storyline finds some of Clark’s most dangerous enemies striking out at his closest friends, an act that pushes the Man of Steel to his limits and causes him to lose some friends in the process.

With Fall in full swing, it’s time for the start of the new seasons of TV. And now more than ever, comics’ TV takeover has swept through the network landscape like never before. With so many comic book TV shows coming our way, what seasons and debuts should you be on the lookout for? Well fret not, loyal readers; I’ve got the rundown for you. Read the rest of this entry
It’s official: Fall is here. And with the turning of the leaves comes the end of the Summer, and more importantly, the end of the summer movie season. This year saw 3 big comic book movies. One was surprisingly a lot of fun, one wasn’t as good as it’s predecessor but was as still a good time, and the other was so bad that it’s not even worth bringing up. With the onslaught of Comic Book films coming our way in 2016, it’s kind of surprising to see the small showing that superheroes had in 2015. Perhaps the big studios were giving us a breather before Batman V Superman, Civil War, Deadpool, X-Men: Apocalypse, and Suicide Squad hit us next year? That may be, but this isn’t a time a to look ahead, it’s a time to look back. So, let’s take a look at the big movies of the summer, and crown our winner!
1872 #3 (Marvel Comics)
1872 has been one of the stranger Secret Wars tie-ins, but it’s also one of the ones with the most charm too. Seeing Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, and other Marvel mainstays through the prism of the old West has been really interesting, and Gerry Duggan’s script has had a lot of fun playing in this world. While 1872 has seemed like it’s been on the outskirts of Marvel’s massive event, with this issue it’s starting to show that it may have a larger role in the future of the Marvel universe than we originally thought.

Marvel has been saying since the announcement of the “All-New, All-Different” relaunch that things were going to be a little different. And after Friday’s announcement that Mary Jane Watson is joining the cast of Brian Michael Bendis’ Invincible Iron Man, Marvel’s definitely living up to the “Different” aspect of the name. Of course, being the huge Spider-Man fan that I am, I have a few opinions on this news. Read the rest of this entry
Captain America: White #1 (of 5) (Marvel Comics)
Aside from All-Star Batman & Robin, there’s arguably been no longer delayed comic than Captain America: White. The latest installment in Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s award winning “color” line of miniseries following famous Marvel characters, White had a special “zero issue” released in 2008, and then….nothing. Putting the focus on the Sentinel of Liberty right after he’s woken up in modern times, this first issue is an extremely poignant and great look into the mind of Steve Rogers, and more importantly, it reminds you that yes, Jeph Loeb CAN still write good comics.

The past two weeks have been pretty wild for Marvel Studios. Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, no longer has to answer to Ike Perlmutter, the head of Marvel Comics. Instead, Feige will now answer directly to the head of Disney Studios, Alan Horn. With Kevin Feige no longer having to answer to the CEO of Marvel, and the disbanding of the “Marvel Creative Committee”, one wouldn’t be wrong in assuming that this is the beginning of the end for the mighty Marvel Studios. But is this really the case? Read the rest of this entry
