TweetBy David Nieves J. Michael Straczynski isn’t one to mess around. Unless it’s an hour of sarcasm and announcements, which his spotlight panel, Comic-Con Saturday, had copious amounts of. JMS as he’s know to his friends, enemies, and frenemies had a lot of updates on outhouse projects and something he announced at SDCC two years […]
TweetBy David Nieves One of Marvel’s last SDCC panels came with several announcements on Sunday afternoon. Nick Lowe introduced the panel which consisted of fellow editor Mike Marts, writer Mark Waid, Gerry Duggan, Sam Humphries, and Charles Soule and editor Jordan D. White. Dan Slott was ” just talking to someone on the side.” Why […]

TweetBy: Nick Eskey Art has gone hand in hand with videogames almost since the beginning. Oh yes, the earliest games were either text-based adventures, or pixilated jumbles; Not really “artistic.” But the boxes they were packaged in were usually masterpieces of fantasies. It wasn’t that developers didn’t feel games were worthy of art as part […]
TweetBy: Nick Eskey There are many pieces that go into creating a successful movie and television series, especially when trying to bring something to life from a printed medium. There has to be a solid script, right choice of actors, a fitting venue, and of course perfect music score. All of these aspects paint a […]
In case you missed the first portion of this special two-parter, it was revealed that Batman has conquered America and has established his black Bat-capital in a cave in Branson, Missouri.
That is not entirely true, but I do hope something of the story of the Bald Knobbers (cringey name aside) rang true for Batman fans. The vigilante story is old and real in America.
TweetIf you look at the history of digital music, the combination of a standardized format, moderate pricing (compared to CDs) and DRM-free files were what sparked sales. Comics still doesn’t have a standardized format or a lower pricing tier for new issues, but DRM-free just turned up. Comixology has announced they’re going to be having […]
SDCC ’14: Comixology announces DRM-free backups for Image, Top Shelf, Dynamite, Monkeybran, Thrillbent
TweetWith a line up of publishers yet unknown, Comixology has announced that from now on publishers will be able to choose a DRM-free option for their comics downloads. It’s both an acknowledgement of the reality of technology and a pretty forward facing move for a company that faces some skepticism since being acquired by Amazon. […]
Tweet“Mom, what’s for breakfast?” “Well honey, we have pancakes, bacon, potatoes, Decepiticons…” If you were a kid from the 80’s, 90’s, or still a kid at heart, then you’re most likely familiar with Transformers. You know, “Transformers: More than meets the eye.” In honor of the franchise’s 30th anniversary, Hasbro Toys treated some eager reporters […]
TweetBy: Nick Eskey DC Collectibles had a fine showing today of toys, figurines, and statues for the upcoming year. Each one meets the fine level of detail that is synonymous with the DC brand. With the variety of collectible shown, it was hard to decide what to talk about in length. For their action figures, […]
TweetDynamite is celebrating it’s 10th anniverasy with a special issue of Army of Darkness, Army of Darkness #1992.1 (after the year the film was released). This is appropriate, given that the Army of Darkness license was what started Dynamite down the path of becoming a publisher. Solicited for November, this is a bit of a “let’s get the […]
TweetCullen Bunn is really spreading himself around these days. The Sixth Gun at Oni. Magneto and Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe at Marvel. Sinestro at DC. You can add Masks II at Dynamite. Masks, which came out in 2012, was essentially a team-up mini-series for Dynamite’s pulp heroes line. The Shadow, The Spider, Green Hornet, Green Lama, Black Bat, Black Terror, Miss Fury and […]
TweetDynamite will be starting a new Lone Ranger series in November. Justin Gray will be writing it, which is interesting for a couple reasons. First off, it’s unusual to see Gray’s name without his usual co-writer/co-conspirator, Jimmy Palmiotti. Secondly, Gray (along with Palmiotti) is the longest tenured writer of the western genre in recent memory. His association […]
TweetAs you may recall, Dynamite and Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. came to an understanding a little while back and we’re continuing to see the fruits of the agreement. The John Carter franchise has been practically a sub-line for Dynamite with Warlord of Mars, Deja of Mars, Lords of Mars and Warriors of Mars. Now they finally get to […]
