When last we rang up Mr. Isaiah Mustafa for his comics fix he intimated to us his intense desire to play Marvel badass Luke Cage in a forthcoming production. Looks like he got his wish. When Luke Cage… takes a stroll through Avengers Tower, you never know who he’s going to run into in the [...]
Cripes Dangit! I’ve been swept out to sea by a freakin’ flash flood and have NO comic books to read this week. While you’re reading DC’s Action Comics #893 this week, featuring a drag-down, messed up punch fest between Gorilla Grodd and Lex Luther I’ll be starving and suffering from Hypothermia. While you’re enjoying the [...]
By Loran In the Zeta Gundam movies, only one new mobile suit was really recognized. Sure, we got the occasional custom-colored GM Custom or GM Cannon, but those were really just brief cameos. Heck, even the rarely-seen blue Hizack from the series got a ton of appearances, but my guess is that’s because Bandai wanted [...]
By Christopher Troy I’ll admit. It’s rare for me to pick up a new Gunpla when I’m not familiar with it. I usually wait until I’ve viewed the respected series/movie it originates from before I purchase it, making sure that my money is well spent. On the other hand, it’s been awhile since we’ve actually [...]
Well, at least my existence as buyer for Forbidden Planet: my monthly Previews catalog, due tomorrow. 550 pages (give or take, with Marvel Previews included) of pure Hell. Nothing on this Earth vexes me so. If I never read the term “True Believer” in a comic solicitation again I’ll be a happy man, but there’s [...]
From writers Scott Snyder and Stephen King, AMERICAN VAMPIRE introduces a new strain of vampire – a more vicious species – and traces the creatures’ bloodline through decades of American history. This first hardcover volume of the critically acclaimed series collects issues #1-5 and follows two stories: one written by Snyder and one written by [...]
By Loran Ah, Zeta Gundam. Widely considered by fans and critics to be one of the best-if not the best of all the classic Gundam shows. I personally think the original series wins that title, but Zeta is still pretty awesome in its own right. Now, the original Gundam movies are probably the best compilation [...]
…but I sure wish they were. Fan Daniel Kanemoto made this.
I’m very pleased to announce a special event with Rob Zombie at Forbidden Planet NYC on October 11th at 6pm! He will be signing copies of Royal Flush volume 7 (which features a totally rad illustration of Rob by legendary Megadeath artist Ed Repka) and his new album Hellbilly Deluxe 2, both of which will [...]
…by someone else. A rather large-necked filmmaker named George. Featuring lazers and Carrie Fisher. The Town.
By Loran Hey, something other than a robot for once! You know, despite my mixed feelings on the franchise, I’m glad I got into the Nanoha franchise. I always disliked getting into Magical Girl shows because of how damn hard it is to get a hold of any merchandise for it. Well, not here. Max [...]
By Mat K. There are a decent amount of books coming out this week, and one title in particular made something fairly clear to me. Natsume Ono is the new Fumi Yoshinaga. “How is that?” you might ask? The beginning of Fumi Yoshinaga’s American career began with Antique Bakery, which brought her unique wispy art [...]
Things in my cave are GREAT, thanks! I’ve taken care of that horrible bear, found a few new non-poisonous mushrooms and even got a girlfriend …although she might just be a hallucination, a side-effect from one of the mushrooms. Girls are translucent, aren’t they? It all makes me think back on the crazy days of [...]
Natch. Recently, we’ve been surveying readers and staff, and cluing you in to some of our favorite indie shops around the country. First we did bookstores, then we moved on to record stores. Both lists generated healthy debates, and lots of suggested additions. Now, we’ve asked our Facebook followers (along with some expert friends) to [...]
by Christopher Troy I have a love/hate relationship with Capcom. I love me some Resident Evil and Street Fighter, the original Devil May Cry was the reason I bought a PS2, and like anyone who reads comics and plays fighting games, I’m incredibly excited for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. But keep in mind the same [...]
