By Loran Oh, Thundercracker… how much controversy you seem to cause. Botcon 2007 was the first time the convention has ever come close to my area, being in Providence, Rhode Island that year. It was my first chance to make my pilgrimage to the convention I’ve waited seven years to finally go to! Only one [...]
By Loran Boy, I sure have the worst timing, don’t I? Shortly after I wrote the article on the HGUC kits Bandai has coming out this summer, bam, they announce a few more! And knowing my luck, they’re going to announce like two or three more a week after this article gets published. But hey, [...]
Check out this trailer for The Troll Hunter and get stoked! Starting May 6th you can check it out streaming on demand through your internet computer video game system whatever, or see it at the Village East Cinema on June 10th.
Over the years Dark Horse has done a fantastic job of bringing American fans the best in manga and translated novels (like the Vampire Hunter D series, one of my very favorite series). It’s no secret that they’ve done more than bring us the latest volumes of what you could classify as heavyweight and/or classic [...]
By Christopher Troy My name is Chris Troy, and this is my most favorite delayed action figure line in the galaxy! There’s a good chance that if you got that joke, you’ve played Mass Effect 2. Which wouldn’t be that much of a suprise, as the best-selling game from Bioware graced the 360 and PC [...]
By Unkiedev Logic states that any article regarding Free Comic Book Day should be written in order to glorify and promote. As the day in question is the first Saturday of May, one MIGHT logically write about it NEXT week, as it’s closer to the actual date so as to inspire participation…but this fails to [...]
By Shannon H. There is a small but strong wave of darkly satisfying manga this week. In particular, the long-awaited second volume of March Story, a lovely horror manhwa with the most elegant gothic drawings to be seen in a good while. Also worth noting is the newest Vampire Hunter D novel (Volume 16), which [...]

Fact: Paul Chadwick’s Concrete is one of my favorite comics. Fiction: Buying Dark Horse Presents #1 (which features an all new COLOR Concrete story) will make you as cool as me. O.K. so it may not make you as cool as me, but it is packed from cover to cover with amazing comicy stuff by [...]
By Chris Troy Happy delicious candy-season at your local Rite Aid/Walgreens/CVS/Duane Reed FPNYC faithful! As yet another commercialized holiday approaches, let it be known that Forbidden Planet has received a ton of new toys and collectibles over the last 2 weeks, so instead of week old Peeps, why not get someone (or yourself) something a [...]

By Unkiedev Green Lantern #65 is out this week, uniting the four Earth Green Lanterns, a.k.a. Hal Jordan, Jon Stewart, Kyle Raynor and that adorable rage-a-holic Guy Gardner. Guy Gardner, for the record, is a cosmic Moe Howard in appearance and deed. S’Crazy. They plan on making a decision that will shun their fellow Green [...]
SLIME IS MONEY!!!
By Shannon H. Despite all the great titles coming out this week, Black Butler Volume 5 and 20th Century Boys Volume 14 among them, there is only one thing to talk about at the moment, and that’s Katsuhiro Otomo’s infamous Akira. At long last, after almost ten years, all six volumes of the most epic [...]
By Loran Well, it’s sad to say, but it doesn’t look like the Power Core Combiner line is going to be continuing. It wasn’t the most popular Transformers subline in recent years, but it feels like the line got axed just as it was getting good. It really seems like that this has been happening [...]
