Three universes collide this year during writer Mark Millar’s run on exciting Marvel titles. Beginning with his newest epic tale, 1985, Millar lays down the foundation for things to come as Marvel: 1985, FANTASTIC FOUR and WOLVERINE all intertwine in a very big way. After his run on Ultimates, and his unforgettable blockbuster Civil War, Millar explores remote and familiar corners of the Marvel Universe in ways that only the man behind such past blockbuster series could. Watch as these stories come to life with the help of long time Ultimates collaborator Bryan Hitch, Civil War’s Steve McNiven, and renowned film and comic artist Tommy Lee Edwards.

I love the swashbuckler and there’s no greater story than the Three Musketeers. The folks at Marvel Comics are bringing this classic book to comics and we have some the early pages. It’s brought to us by the team that did their last adaptation – The Man In The Iron Mask, which I started reading on Marvel’s frustratingly half-assed digital comics service. The 6 issue mini-series hits the shelves this month. Take a gander at this beautiful artwork.
I fancy myself an avid reader, but I’m hardly “literate.” I generally read magazines and text books but rarely do I sit down and attempt to read something like Shakespeare for fun. I need it dumbed down and get rid of all thos, thous, etc. Speak English man! Maybe CliffNotes new series of Manga inspired Shakes is what I need. From what I’ve seen the art looks beautiful. I’m in the process of setting up an interview with the author of the books and will be reading them in the next few days. In the meantime check out the press release. I’m actually looking forward to getting these in my grubby little hands. Throwing on a Beret, sip some Expresso and read these. I’ll be part of the literati in no time.
With the WGA strike about to hit the three month mark, and with limited new episodes of our favorite programs remaining [and most done for the year, or at least until late April/early May], here’s a suggestion: try a few cable series that have recently premiered on DVD. Today we’re looking at one of USA’s earliest series, Swamp Thing: The Series, the first season of which – from Shout Factory! – is now in stores.
The folks at Sega sent over the link to download the trailer for the upcoming Iron Man game. But I’m too lazy to download it and am grabbing this clip from one of my favorite sites on the web gametrailers.com. I had a chance to watch them play it at Comic Con last year and the game is shaping up really nice. Take a gander.
I’m not sure what to think about E! footage from the set of Speed Racer, it looks incredibly cheesy, but film set visits always look crummy. So with that said, “Go Speed Racer, go Speed Racer, Go! Adventures waiting just ahead!” Take a gander at this.
And in case you missed it, here’s a full look at the Mach Five.
A few months ago Josh Whedon launched a new Buffy The Vampire Slayer comic book that has become the official season eight for the television show. I’ve been reading it every time I go to Borders and so far it’s, eh. Not great, not bad, it’s just there. But it has been successful for Dark Horse, now the folks at IDW who owns the rights to Angel has announced a new official season of Angel in Comic Book form. Read the entire news release below. Continue reading Angel Season 6 is coming?
I recently saw some footage of the upcoming film Beowulf at Comic-Con a few months ago and while I was initially skeptical, the footage is stunning, with it’s all star cast that includes Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, John Malkovich, Robin Wright Penn, Brendan Gleeson, Crispin Glover, Alison Lohman and Angelina Jolie this epic fantasy film looks like it could save this crummy year for films. Now comes word that there will be a weekly comic book released throughout the month of October. Check out the amazing cover! Continue reading Beowulf Film Gets The Graphic Novel treatment this month.
