  • The New "Superhero All Week" CW DCTV Trailer Should Please WestAllen Shippers - It's definitely a great time to be a DC Comics and primetime television watcher. A new promo from The CW highlights the network's impressive commitment to providing nightly superhero action for fans from coast-to-coast. All we need now is a Friday night show and the entire week would be set. Although, Friday night certainly didn't do any favors for Constantine when it aired on NBC so perhaps The CW knows what they're doing... What do you think of the current new Fall DCTV seasons currently underway on The CW? Let us know in the comment section below. Watch your favorite DC superheroes all week long on The CW, starting Mondays this fall!
  • Another DOCTOR STRANGE Cast Member Has Joined Benedict Cumberbatch In AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR - In the comic books, Doctor Strange often has Wong by his side, and the same looks set to be the case when the Sorcerer Supreme appears in Avengers: Infinity War a couple of years from now. Talking to recently, Benedict Wong had this to say about reprising the role of Strange's mentor. "I'm thrilled I'm going to be in Infinity War. I'm looking forward to, I'll tell you that one first." So, this is yet another character we can now add to the ever growing list of heroes who will be joining the fight against Thanos. Wong helping Strange out makes a lot of sense, though how significant his role will end up being obviously remains to be seen. It's probably just a cameo, but you have to believe that there's a chance we'll also see The Ancient One and Mordo led a hand against the Mad Titan.  Doctor Strange follows the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car
  • SUPERHEROSTUFF Product Spotlight: IRON MAN "Stark Industries Expo" Men's Baseball T-Shirt - Like you guys, I'm a massive fan of all things comic book, fantasy, and sci-fi (why else do you think I do this for a living?).

  • OFFICIAL: ATLANTA Star Donald Glover Has Been Cast As Lando Calrissian In HAN SOLO - "Lando Calrissian!" Donald Glover has landed the highly coveted role of Lando Calrissian in the yet-to-be titled Han Solo stand-alone spin-off film, which is expected in theaters summer 2018. Lucasfilm announced the casting themselves in a statement released earlier this afternoon. Glover now joins Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!), who has signed on for the title role, in a film that will depict the formative years of the two scoundrels-turned-heroes and will of course, take place long before the events of The Empire Strikes Back & Return of the Jedi where he reunited with Solo and joined Luke Skywalker & Leia Organa in the fight against Darth Vader and the Empire. In their statement, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller gave their seal of approval and expressed their excitement at getting a chance to work with him: "We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us... These are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, which will save us money on alterations. Also, we’d like to publicly

  • Kevin Feige Explains Why He's Hesitant To Introduce Marvel's Netflix Characters To The Cinematic Universe - It won't happen in Infinity War, but will we eventually see Marvel's Netflix characters join The Avengers up on the big screen? Considering it's all supposed to be set in the same universe you would think it's a no-brainer, but Marvel Studios representatives have always seemed reluctant to offer anything in the way of confirmation that plans are in place. During a press junket for Doctor Strange, Collider asked Kevin Feige if he thought the likes of Daredevil, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones would ever make the transition to the MCU, and Marvel's head honcho explained that it'll only happen when the time is right. "I think it’s extremely impressive what Netflix has done and it will be the same answer I always give, which is, “It all depends on timing.” It all depends on how to do it because I don’t think what anybody wants to do is have such important characters show up for one second. Black Panther and Spider-Man to

While it may not be the comic book faithful adaptation of Old Man Logan some fans were hoping for, it still has all the makings of being the perfect conclusion to the story of a character Hugh Jackman first played over sixteen long years ago. Since then, the actor has gone on to star as Wolverine in eight different big screen releases.  From cameos to leading roles and his own spinoff movies, Jackman has made a huge impact as Wolverine during his tenure as

  • David Haller May Be The Most Powerful Mutant Alive In Two New Promos For FX's LEGION - FX Network has released two darkly humorous promos for their upcoming X-Men spinoff, Legion, giving us a better look at the son of Charles Xavier, David Haller (Dan Stevens), his incredibly dangerous mutant abilities, and more of the show's supporting cast.  From everything we've seen so far, the show looks to be a very unique and stylized departure from the X-Men series, which isn't too suprising coming from executive producer Noah Hawley (Fargo). Let us know what you think of Legion in the comments! The show will debut on February 2017 on FX. Legion follows David Haller, a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and visions might be real.
  • GAME OF THRONES: A Character Makes His Long-Awaited Return In This New Season 7 Set Video - Former blacksmith, bastard son of Robert Baratheon, and surely an Olympic-level rower at this stage - Gendry (Joe Dempsie) will make his triumphant return in season 7 of Game of Thrones. The video below captures a scene that was shot yesterday on Muriola Beach in Barrika, and features Tyrion, Davos (there's the Jon/Dany alliance seemingly confirmed anyway) and Gendry escaping from a pair of Goldcloaks. It's been quite a while since we've seen Arya's former best bud, and it looks like young Gendry has become as adept at swinging a warhammer as his late father was in his prime. Check out the vid and a breakdown of the scene courtesy of Davos and Gendry are together preparing the boat to leave when two gold cloaks approach. Davos demonstrates that the boat is innocently empty by pulling back the tarp. He appears to then bribe the gold cloaks, who turn to leave, but just then Tyrion appears. The gold cloaks see Tyrion and
  • J.J. Abrams Reveals What Was Cut From Rey's "Forceback" In STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS - Despite having a fairly straightforward story, Star Wars: The Force Awakens still had its fair share of mysteries by the time the film ended; chief among them was the cryptic "force vision" experienced by Rey. In a new commentary excerpt from the upcoming Blu-ray Collector's Edition of the movie, director J.J. Abrams has provided some context on the scene, along with a pivotal moment that was cut. In the film's final sequence, Rey discovers Luke Skywalker's lightsaber in Maz Kanata's castle, and upon touching it, is beset by a vision that includes the hallways of Cloud City, the Knights of Ren, a hooded Luke Skywalker, and a flashback to being left on Jakku as a child. According to Abrams, the scene originally was supposed to feature Rey witnessing the epic battle between Luke and Darth Vader (from The Empire Strikes Back) in the deep passages of Cloud City. "Touching the lightsaber triggers what we call the 'Forceback.' There were many iterations of this. In one,
  • GODZILLA Sequel Enlists KRAMPUS Writers Michael Dougherty & Zach Shields - Variety is reporting that Legendary has enlisted Krampus scribes Michael Dougherty and Zach Shields to pen the script for their upcoming Godzilla sequel, which is due out in theaters early 2019. Additionally, while Kong: Skull Island is already complete, the report strongly suggests that the studio may be working on establishing a writers room to help further develop their impending Godzilla/King Kong cinematic universe. Dougherty & Shields are expected to just write the script for Godzilla 2, but there is a possibility their draft may turn out to be the jumping off point for a potential writers room. Kong: Skull Island, which was helmed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, Jason Mitchell, & Toby Kebbell, hits theaters March 10, 2017. The next installment in the franchise will be Godzilla 2, which is expected in theaters on March 22, 2019 and will be followed by the monster movie blockbuster for the ages: Godzilla vs.

  • Damien Darhk Rises To Power In LEGENDS OF TOMORROW Season 2, Episode 5 Synopsis; "Compromised" - The CW has released the description for Legends of Tomorrow's fifth episode, and it sounds like we can expect to see the team once again squaring off with Arrow season four villain Damien Darhk. How has he managed to weasel his way into the White House? That remains to be seen, but chances are this has something to do with whatever the Reverse-Flash (now alive thanks to Flashpoint) is up to. It also appears as if the 1980s set episode - titled "Compromised" - is going to feature some shocking revelations about the Justice Society of America, a team who debuted in tonight World War II set instalment.

  • Top Comic Book Sidekicks -

    BuckyEach comic book has its superstar, the main character, the top dog that stands tall over the rest of the characters as its primary focus. These characters like Captain America, Batman, and Green Arrow are the main thing that drives the storylines along. These heroes are the ones in the spotlight and take on the heavy lifting, but they are often not alone. The sidekick was created to accompany these heroes and provide an added layer of complexity to their already full lives. Check out more in this list of Top Comic Book Sidekicks.

  • Action Lab Comics and Reviews -

    It is always interesting to see the kinds of comic books that come out from the smaller publishers. While I would say the top and more memorable characters are still in The Big Two, it is these small press companies that I think are coming out with the better stories as a whole.  I am very enamored with the creator owned concept and love to see that singular voice coming through a project.

    Action Lab Comics is that kind of small comic book publisher. They hit it big with their highly acclaimed series Princeless and have many other comic books in their stable. One such recent acquisition is Skyward, by Jeremy Dale. I got a chance to review the first in the series as they are relaunching the once self-published comic book. Take a look at my review and see what memories it drug up for this long time fantasy fan.

    I also got a chance to review the Adventure Time Annual #1. It was a pretty cool read with some interesting takes on the Adventure Time universe.

  • Hound Comics -

    Brimstone and LusciousWhenever I get the chance to attend a comic book convention, I'm always on the lookout for talent and things that are new to the comic book industry. New publishers, creators, companies, you name it, I love seeing new stuff. When I went to Wizard World: Portland, I ran into a group of guys from Hound Comics, a young comic book publisher that had a lot of different products and some interesting characters to boot. I spoke with CEO and ex professional wrestler Brimstone for a bit and took home some items from their booth.

    Hound Comics is the sort of place a lot of independent publishers should take note of as they embody the spirit of the entrepreneur like none I've seen recently. Not only do they have a line of comics based off of his wrestling persona, but also a other creator owned comic books, a food line, apparel, and a slate of other products. I got the chance to interview Hound Comics and got some insight into the mind behind the publishing company and was excited to peek behind the veil and see how things tick at Hound Comics. Check out the interview with Brimstone, CEO of Hound Entertainment Group.

  • New Image Titles -

    Ten GrandIt would seem a lot of creators are turning to Image Comics to get their visions out into the hands of comic book fans. I have seen a bevy of high profile creator owned series coming out of Image and it is really great to see. Joe's Comics has restarted and their first comic book out is Ten Grand, written by Straczynski himself and illustrated by Ben Templesmith. The duo really hit the mark for me and I thoroughly enjoyed what looks to be the first in a good slate of comic books coming out of this new Image imprint. Another comic I got a chance to sink my teeth into was Chin Music by Steve Niles and Tony Harris. It was very interesting to see two comic books combining the whole occult/crime thing and the two took very divergent paths. I enjoyed them both and look forward to the comic books Image will be putting out.

  • Kickstart Your Comic Book Creation -

    Did you know that the website is the second largest graphic novel publisher in the U.S. according to Publishers Weekly? It beats out DC in terms of revenue off of these graphic novels and is only just behind Marvel. The term "publisher" is a bit loose here in that the company isn't directly responsible for the final product, but the proof that so many comics are created now through Kickstarter is astounding and awesome!

    I've been able to talk to a couple of creators about the Kickstarting process in The Only Living Boy and Rumpus on the Run and the whole concept is exhilarating to think about the avenues that are open for creators to make comic books nowadays. Apparently the process isn't that new as according to Kickstarter, even the likes of Beethoven used a form of crowdsourcing to fund his works. Check out if Kickstarter is right for you and how you can take advantage of this great new concept.

  • Jess Smart Smiley Kickstarter Interview - Rumpus On The Run -

    Rumpus On The RunKickstarter is such an interesting new avenue for creators. With the right idea, pitch, and networking you can fund just about anything. Order Of The Stick funded a republishing drive and raised over 1.5 million dollars. Penny Arcade raised funds to remove advertising from their website and received over 500 thousand dollars. Now most campaigns are much smaller and won't bring in this kind of money, but for a small press comic book, not a lot can be needed. I got a chance to sit with a creator that has been on the Kickstarting ride with his latest endeavor Rumpus On The Run and right now his project is funded for the softcover version of the book, but Jess Smart Smiley also has dreams to bring his book to hardcover status. There is just a few days to go so be sure to head over this his Kickstarter Campaign first, then over the interview I did with Smiley about the process, his latest work, and kicsktarting comics.

  • Wizard World Portland Comic Con In Review -

    WWPDXI was really glad I got the chance to go to the Wizard World Portland Comic Con. It was the first time the con was conducted in Stumptown, my hometown of Portland, Oregon. That's Or-e-gun all smoothed together in one go and not Or-ee-gone as out of towners like to say. Although there were some things I found concerning, overall it was a smashing success that this town truly embraced. Take a look at a review of Wizard World Portland to see what was great and what could use some work on for next year. If you are interested in going next year, and I would recommend it, Wizard is doing a special promotion that will work until Monday Feb 25th at Noon. Use the code Portland2013 to get a special discount on next year's entrance to Wizard World Portland Comic Con.

  • First Day Of Wizard World Portland Comic Con -

    Lou FerrignoThe Wizard World Portland Comic Con was in full effect today in Portland, Oregon and the convention floor was hopping with fans, creators, and celebrities. It is odd that this hasn't happened sooner as Portland is actually one of the largest comics town in the USA. Many creators such as Bendis and Busiek make their home in this area and there are many publishers like Dark Horse, Top Shelf, and Oni here as well. Don't forget that the statue company Bowen Designs resides were to!. This is a great place for comic books and has a great indy convention in the Stumptown Comics Fest, but Wizard World is going for a large scale feel and I think they have a good start. It was interesting that there was a lack of publishers showcasing here and it might be that the Emerald City Comic Con is next weekend in Seattle, WA. Either way I had a good time and met some new people. More to come.

  • Heading to Wizard World Portland -

    Well it looks like I will be able to attend Wizard World Portland this year and will be heading down for a couple of days of fun at the Oregon Convention Center. I am curious to see what happens as there is something of a duel happening in Portland between Wizard World and Rose City Comic-Con. Wizard World has had something of a bad rap at times and Rose City is partnering with Emerald City Comic Con to partner in running their convention. I hope to see how they handle Portland and if the convention can be the kind of convention this city could use. I will report back with my findings and see just what it has in store.

  • Superheroes For Hospice Interview -

    Comic book charities are a very cool thing in my mind as they merge something that we love with a good cause. There are many great comic book charities out there right now and one of them is Superheroes for Hospice. This event is a mini-convention where fans can come and get comic books on the cheap. All the profits go to the hospice and help those in need in the New Jersey area. This gives comic collectors another way to get rid of unwanted comic books as the donations they use to stock the event are tax deductible. I got a chance to interview the man behind the curtains, Spiro Ballas, who gave me the skinny on what the hospice does and how you can help others through comic books.
