AMC Visionaries: Robert Kirkman’s Secret History of Comics – a six-episode deep dive into the stories, people and events that have transformed the world of comic books – will premiere on Sunday, November 12th (11/10C) before settling into its regular timeslot, Monday, November 13th (10/9C).
Captain America has been an American icon almost from his inception back in 1941. Created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, his adventures were an inspiration to millions during the second world war – the first issue of Captain america Comics had Cap punching Adolph Hitler smack on the jaw – and when Stan Lee and Jack Kirby resurrected him from a block of ice in 1964, it made the newspapers.
Since then, Cap has been around – not always in his own comic, but guesting in other series and leading the Avengers. He’s been mangled in bad TV movies and a truly awful straight to video movie and survived to become one of the cornerstones of the Marvel cinematic Universe.
On Tuesday, January 19, 2016 (8/7C), ABC will broadcast Marvel’s Captain America: 75 Heroic Years – an original special looking at Cap’s epic career. Members of Marvel’s past, present and future – including Stan Lee, Jeph Loeb, Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell (to name a few) and family members of Cap’s creators will take part.

The Epix channel is turning into quite a cool little entertainment platform. This weekend, April 27 – 29, you can watch Thor and Captain America for free – as long as you sign up for a 14-day trial and catch the world premiere of a brand new documentary “The Stan Lee Story” about Stan “The Man” Lee (creator of the majority of Marvel’s characters) – who did give me permission to still his famous Excelsior! The documentary premiered April 27th, but I’m sure you can catch a replay. You can get Epix on your local cable systems, on the web and they have an app available for Xbox 360 (not sure about PS3.) Hurry and register to catch your free viewing of Captain America and Thor. It still amazes me that one man created all of these amazing characters. Here is a taste of the great one’s new documentary.

SyFy’s popular new program Hollywood Treasure is a different type of reality-based show. It has a premise and format that hooks the viewer through the presentation of interesting Hollywood memorabilia, while tapping into the curiosity factor of wanting to know not only how much they are worth but what others are ultimately willing to pay for them. The show has an addictive, quick-paced formula basically consisting of three ‘hooks’ and each week presents two half-hour episodes. There are even special auctions held to benefit charity. And the best part is that SyFy also makes it possible for viewers to take part in auctions. This includes unique items from fan favorites Battlestar Galactica, Caprica, Warehouse 13, as well as trip packages for Comic Con with VIP access, and an all-expense paid weekend with the Ghost Hunters. You can also get your hands on scripts signed by the cast of Stargate Universe or Warehouse 13. Or how about the purple dress worn by Alessandra Torresani on Caprica? These and many other items are now up for grabs to the highest bidder.
The more I hear about Shattered Dimensions, the more I can’t wait to play it at Activision’s upcoming NY. Neil Patrick Harris will reprise his role as Spider-Man in Activision’s upcoming Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, which is currently being showcased at San Diego Comic-Con. In the game, players traverse through four unique worlds from Spider-Man lore and take on the role of four distinctly different Spider-Men – Amazing, Ultimate, Noir and 2099 – which will be brought to life by Neil Patrick Harris along with Josh Keaton, Christopher Daniel Barnes and Dan Gilvezan, respectively.
