While Marvel’s Secret Wars shenanigans are still in-full swing, comic shop retailers across the globe received the All-New, All-Different Marvel Previews – a magazine revealing most of their post-Secret Wars publishing line that will debut in Oct., and it is full of revelations as to the direction of the Marvel Universe.
Below are the titles revealed in the new magazine, with brief cover descriptions. (more…)
Last week, Dark Horse Comics finally released a huge selection of its back catalog on the Comixology app. This means several amazing series that weren’t previously available now are. To celebrate the new addition, Comixology is offering several of these series at discounted prices.
While Marvel and DC are often considered the top dogs in the comic world right now, Dark Horse has produced some of the greatest comics and characters in the medium for almost 30 years now. No small feat against those power houses. This sale is a perfect opportunity to explore and rediscover the company’s distinct quality and presence. But, bearing in mind how tempt—I mean crazy it would be to spend a month’s worth of paychecks on all of these fine books, I’ve narrowed it down to the best of the best. To keep the list somewhat objective and brief, I opted for title that had the best deals price-wise and will read well on the Comixology app.
So which Dark Horse title will you bet on? (more…)
Comic icon Stan Lee – who helped create Spider-Man and his alter-ego Peter Parker – came out this week in defense of leaving his creation as he was created: white and heterosexual. Leaked Sony documents stipulated that Peter must male, a non-smoker, and not be gay (unless Marvel ever portrays him as gay first… then all bets are off). (more…)

Change is in the air at Marvel Comics. With the mega-super-duper-literally-everything-and-the-kitchen-sink event Secret Wars well under way, it’s naturally the perfect time to see what the future holds. While Marvel has already previewed a few “All-New All-Different” titles and status-quo changes, we haven’t seen much of that good ol’ Marvel Comics and Marvel Cinematic Universe synergy. That changes today with the announcement of two new titles: Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel. Luckily, don’t expect either book to be dictated by what will eventually be on screen; both creative teams are looking to produce fresh spins on these unique characters.In his first ongoing series in over 20 years, Doctor Strange, Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme and the Marvel U’s go-to magic man, will take on supernatural threats with his intellect, his mystic arts and his … battle axe?
We all know that after Secret Wars, things are going to be “all-new and all-different” in the Marvel Comic Book Universe (as they always are after a major event series). One of the most tantalizing bits is that elements from the regular Marvel Universe and the Ultimate Marvel Universe will be merging, thus resulting in a new normal that may genuinely be “all-new and all-different” after all. The biggest change is that Ultimate Spider-Man, Miles Morales, will be in the regular Marvel 616 Universe and be part of the new Avengers line-up, but more than that, Marvel is releasing a solo book for Miles, which will simply be called Spider-Man.

This is why we can’t have nice things Internet. First you take a site like The Daily Star, then throw an incredibly poorly written and researched post about a big star against the Internet and then just see what clicks. Seriously though, the ridiculous “Word Of The Day” making the Internet rounds is that Beyonce is in talks with Disney and Marvel to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a super heroine role in time for the next Avengers movie. I’ll give you a minute to stifle that fit of giggles that news should have generated. Once you’ve caught your breath, check out what roles The Daily Star thinks Beyonce might play. (more…)
It was with great regret that Hugh Jackman told fans a little while ago that Wolverine 3 would be his last turn at the mutant hero who’s the best at what he does. The news was understandable just the same though because by the time that Wolverine 3 will be release, Jackman will have played the part for nearly 20 years. Wolverine maybe ageless, but Jackman is not, and since he’s a talented actor, he’s probably interested in doing more with his time, career and clout than playing an angry berserker with metal claws every couple of years. So with all that in mind, what could Wolverine 3 possibly be about? What would make a satisfying endgame for Jackman’s tenure as Wolverine? Your comic collection may have the answer and it’s called Old Man Logan. (more…)

While doing some press for Call of Duty: Black Ops III at E3 Rosario Dawson also talked a little about her character Claire during Netflix‘s Daredevil Season 2, her possible crossover into Netflix’s Jesscia Jones/Luke Cage/Iron Fist series, and her excitement about the casting and introduction of the Punisher (Jon Bernthal).
